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...

Re: The New Channel EQ

It's not about Push but about Live Intro actually which doesn't have EQ8. Ah yeah, that makes a lot of sense when you put it that way. EQ3 is not really a good introduction to the main program. I really tried to use it, but it's just so weird with the fixed frequencies. I can't see me opening it ev...

The New Channel EQ

I know this is probably better suited to the Centercode forum but the device will land here in the wild soon enough ... Is anyone else as baffled as me as to the existence of the Channel EQ? It seems totally pointless, useless, worthless a real waste of space! The interface is... not good, and the f...

Re: Ableton and OBS

You need to use whatever software mixer comes with your audio interface. It will probably have a loopback facility. That's the only way to use asio with multiclient. By using the software mixer of the interface manufacturers. Because that operates at hardware level. If you search this board for OBS ...

Re: Best beginner/intermediate hardware synths

Ive had an MS20 for many years and while its a great synth full of personality I wouldnt say its NOT the ideal first synth. Its ideosyncratic, dirty, wild, it needs some know-how to figure out the patching, its not ideal for live performances. Its great, but as perhaps a second or 3rd synth. If I wa...

Re: Ableton Live VST Instruments Accuracy Issues?

here's a test at 121 BPM. there is an audible discrepancy on the first beat but as far as I can tell everything else is fine.

I'm not saying "there's no problem", only perhaps that it is more complex than it first appears.

Re: Ableton Live VST Instruments Accuracy Issues?

I did a quick screen capture to show that it seems normal on mine

you'll hear one rogue "thud" as I turn off the phase inverter for a beat to show that it is actually making sounds, but that they are all being phase aligned.

Hmm, I watched the video and thought it seemed odd so I tried it out and ... mine is totally fine. I'm on L10.1b14 , windows system. What I did. Made a track with an Operator Kick drum noise playing 4 beats to the bar, for 8 bars Duplicated that, froze and flattened the duplicated version lowered bo...

Re: New to Ableton and Daws really need help

It depends what you want the BSP to do. try this: put a drum rack on a track in Ableton, arm the track. On the BSP select sequencer 1, press the pads. You should hear drums sounds coming out of Ableton. If not then you have not got the BSP set as a MIDI track input in the Ableton->Preferences. So go...

Re: 3rd party plugins reporting "0 latency" cause phasing with looper

Try> Options menu. uncheck "reduced latency when monitoring". In short: that option makes any armed or monitored track ignore the latency calculations of other sibling tracks. It's so you can play-through with the shortest latency. But it comes a cost of sync between siblings. More information in th...

Re: 3rd party plugins reporting "0 latency" cause phasing

Are these plugins in parallel chains filters, or EQs? Common Filters like EQs often rotate phase. They aren't latent like a compressor with a 5 ms lookahead, but they will rotate phase by the duration of a wavelength , which is unequal. Low frequencies are long durations and hugh frequencies are sho...

Re: Can I organize Max Devices?

I think that's a bit misleading. It's not possible to add folders to the Max department of the library browser. The max section of the live browser is one flat list and nothing can change that. It's bad design. It is possible to add folders which will show up in the lower "places" and most people si...
