Re: Is it better to mixdown using mono tracks ?

I disagree. what is the point of this? I think its better to keep things as stereo if they are stereo. it makes editing easier. What is in stereo should stay stereo - I agree completely! That's why I'm recommending that you think of stereo as two mono tracks. That way you won't accidentally run a m...

Re: Audio routing question: PC to soundcard to mixer.. and back?

Any ideas? Is this even possible?! To start, the obligatory "It's easy to do on OSX" comment. (Also easy to do on Linux. Not sure if jack exists/is stable for Windowns) Your problem lies in the fact that ableton can only talk to one sound card, so you need to route the output from the A&H through "...

Re: Is it better to mixdown using mono tracks ?

Cool but....why ?! :) Any time you run a mono effect over a stereo track, you have in effect mixed two mono tracks (a stereo pair) down to a single mono track. Basically the stereo is silently reduced to mono, so why have double the audio data in the first place? I believe that Ableton corrects for...

Re: Is it better to mixdown using mono tracks ?

Always, always, always, THINK in mono. There's no such thing as a stereo track, it's just a pair of related mono tracks. If your source is stereo, like a stereo synthesizer, then record two mono tracks from it. If your source is mono, like a simple sample, then record one mono track from that. If yo...

Re: Making samples more alive!

Also, try using beat-repeat with extremely long timescales. Put in a buzzing repear something like every 14 bars.

Re: strategies for a live set

Freeze and resampling are necessary. Think about getting an external effects unit. (I use a Kurzweil KSP8, but Lexicon has some very good cheaper units.) That way you don't have to rely on CPU for reverb and delay (CPU killers). Also, many sample libraries have 16bit options-- a huge savings in CPU...

Re: strategies for a live set

Actually my partner and I decide while playing the set what we want to tweak, so we want to have everything ready for tweaking. Nevertheless, since we´re reaching the capacity, I should think about that. Sure, but you still won't be able to get around using audio files long term. If you don't tweak...

@three, Maybe you could try some kind of backup facility? The problem is that I only want to carry those samples that are used in my sets around on my laptop's internal hard drive. I have my live sets on that, and the library on an external drive. What I'm hoping for is a way to globally tell live ...

2 ProTips™ for you: -- As others have said, a lot of your gear will have a switch to use 220-240V mains, so you can switch it.

I use a similar setup - my library is on an external drive, and it works wonderfully. One question for you guys: have any of you found a way to make a global setting for a project to always copy all files to its own directory? I can do it manually, but I have having to remember to do that. The reaso...

Hey everyone, this coming Saturday djLAPCORE (lapcore.de) and I (verschallert.com) will be putting on WAYFORWARD 003. This is the third in an ongoing event series where we've been pushing and prodding at the limits of what you can do in a club. As this is (for the moment) largely a DJ gig, the sound...
