Re: Is using synth presets 'cheating'?

I enjoy a good necrobump. Some players only need a Rhodes with a wah pedal & a 2600 and a four voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rABZKiAeIU4 (Weather Report Live in 1976) Or perhaps https://youtu.be/ehXUyW4-hA8?t=925 Bass players, probably don't watch that unless you want to fall into a Jaco Pa...

Re: Hardware mixer for Ableton

I'm a bit confused, are you looking for a mixer or a controller ? You are listing two different things, the Launchcontrol XL is a midi control device which sends control signals to ableton, and all the audio processing is done digitally inside ableton. The Behringer mixer: all the audio processing i...

Re: Fixedlenght recording Without Push2

How are you with Python programming? Or Max programming?
Because you can do something along those line via those routes.

Re: looper + change of tempo question

The Live Looper cannot change tempo without changing the pitch of the loop as it doesn't have a time-stretch facility. There are other loopers on the market which offer this. Live's looper has some unique benefits of integration but is also limited in certain ways. I think Moebius does timestretchin...

Re: Who programmed the DSP for Ableton's stock plugins?

The 3 delay modes Fade/Jump/Repitch where added by Claes Johanson just before he left for bitwig. I may be off on this, but Impulse may have been written by Basil Fawlty after he got out of the hotel business. At least that is what I recall from either an old promo video or the one where Vocoder go...

Re: Who programmed the DSP for Ableton's stock plugins?

There have been plenty of people passing through Ableton. Way back in the past when Simpler, Sampler and Operator were made there were very few employees. I have a recollection that Operator DSP was by Matthias Mayrock after the original design by R.Henke, the interface was by Torsten Slama. That wa...

Re: How I make "vintage drum machine" sounds using Operator - walkthrough

I know one day I'll find a use for it and if that day comes I will remain very very quiet about that usage for as long as possible. But really. It's daft. Not as daft as I am for leaving the 32Hz boom tone active on the Snare drumbus device though. That's pretty typical of my high-level sound creati...

I thought it was all too obvious. Apparently not.

Re: Global groove needs to come back for LIVE beat making!

the oddest thing about groove is ... there's the weird "hidden" groove which I guess is accesible very easilly from Push, but also via the API. I have a footpedal assigned to it, the more times I press it the more groovy the currently selected clip gets. Well that's how I like to use it. I mean this...

How I make "vintage drum machine" sounds using Operator - walkthrough

Some people are interested in making their own drum sounds and vintage drum machine kits in Operator. I tend to do it like therapy, I just whap out yet another "analog style" kit whenever I feel like killing time. It's fun and easy and they always come out differently . this video is not some kind o...

Re: Can anyone suggest how to duplicate a particular guitar?

I totally appreciate the responses! Good to know it would be pretty hard to create exactly. After watching that video again I think what I hear is actually one of those slide guitars, some sort of steel guitar that lays down. Good idea on the guitar in leaning it... im still learning the piano but ...

Re: Can anyone suggest how to duplicate a particular guitar?

I've spent 20+ years enjoying making sounds on synths and I love to make patches and I have yet to make a convincing guitar sound on a synth. There are a few Guitar sample collections (with gestures) which I've used to block out songs late at night. I have an old one for Kontakt with a bunch of acou...
