Re: Rendering and sync

Ignore my suggestion above.

Here's what I think the problem is;

Warping

When you render it, it's converting it to warping, and might be using a weird mode. IF you turn warping off does it match up?

Re: Rendering and sync

No, Freeze/Flatten is the way

I have had this happen before. Can you save the patch on the VST, delete it/then re-place it on the same track?

In the past I have had certain plugins lose tempo sync somehow and get delays or LFOs going off.

Re: Rendering and sync

Are you freeze/flattening or recording on a new track via resampling?

If you are resampling the small amount of latency may throw it off. However freezing and flattening should be no different.

Re: Recording hardware instruments with plugins - problems

I was guessing that was the case.

I am always worried about that sort of thing as well (sync getting lost, or strange behavior when recording, sampling, etc) as a result I just try to record dry w/ nothing going. I agree, less than ideal.

Re: Recording hardware instruments with plugins - problems

Are you recording the 909 w/ the effects in as audio?

What if you recorded the 909 dry, and then put effects on the recordings, would that solve this?

Apologies if I am not understanding the question/situation correctly.

Best of luck man.

Re: The idea of using Ableton as your master software

Those are both way more expensive than you need, and the wrong tools for the job. They represent top notch dj mixers for CDs or turntables. You will need a midi controller (for tactile control) and a soundcard (likely a 2 in, 4 output) so you can cue on one stereo pair, and send the rest to the mast...

Re: Okay is it just me, or is the Abes summing bus kinda bad?

Nah I compressed things gently to make sure that didn't happen. Not using any plugins either. Can you elaborate on this? Genuinely asking: are you well versed in using compression? (Asking b/c if you over compressed the individual channels this can be the problem) What decibel level is your track p...

Re: Are "breakdowns" 100% necessary in Electronic Music?

Do what you think is right.

Songs don't need breakdowns.

Some have them, some don't.

Re: any tips in getting "mpc compression" using ableton?

Do you have an MPC? If so, sample into the MPC, the play from the MPC into Ableton. The sound we all like is probably from the hitting the convertors in the MPC a little hot, which compresses it slightly. One of the older generation like MPC60(mkII), 2000(xl), 3000. The newer generation like the 50...

Re: Melodic/Detroit Techno : Chords!

No need to bump, the info you asked for is in the this thread already. Here is a summary: Most Detroit techno is Minor chords. You can do this by programming the notes yourself, or using the chord midi effect in Ableton Many Detroit artists would just sample a synth playing a chord sound, and then p...

Re: Exporting/rendering all tracks with send effects printed

Seems like the simplest way would be to duplicate your sends, assign each one to it's respective track and then bounce.

The bounce will take forever, but this would only take a minute or so to set up.
