I pressed buttons and it made music

Hello to old friends and new! After many years of putting it off I'm digging into M4L. I finally connected some patch cables and made a noise! It was wonderful. This is in stark contrast to my usual path of connecting patch cables, no noise, mass confusion, desperation, abandonment. For anyone start...

Re: Surfing thru Ableton instrument Presets via midi controller

You can do it easily with a knob, not sure about a button though. Make an instrument rack with a chain for each preset, the open up the chain selection zone editor. Use the 'distribute range evenly' command to split each preset chain into it's own zone. Map the chain selector to a macro, and you ca...

Yay I wrote an article for beginners

I wrote an article! I mean I had to build my own website to do it but c'mon who's keeping score? www.freebeats.cc/howtomakebeatsforfree/ It's pretty nifty if you have friends who want to get into producing but don't want to spend the money and don't have a lot of musical background. This gets them e...

Re: How to Save Multiple Clips Into User Library At One Time

another thing to try is using finder. you can point it at a folder and sort by ALC or search by file type. I've messed with it a bit and didn't fall in love but maybe you'll find a way that works for you

Pros: powerful search
Cons: takes you out of ableton

Re: How to Save Multiple Clips Into User Library At One Time

i haven't found away around this. It's better to just accept it and move on and use the ALS as part of your organization process.

Re: Best MIDI guitar rig for Ableton 9

as long as the hardware is "good enough" then you're taking a load of your CPU. Using triple play is really nice with my laptop specs. Plenty of channels, no extra CPU, no complicated routing, any softsynth I want etc. For many guitar players getting a guitar player synth pedal is a great idea becau...

Re: Best MIDI guitar rig for Ableton 9

I love jam origin plugin. Great for 9/10 things.

if you're looking to take the processing out of your CPU go with Fishman triple play. Easy install, nice price.

Re: Anyone using Livid Code V2 to control plugins?

You can change the encoder speed so the Code can send one value per click.... or other configurations that are faster/slower.

Re: Chord Progressions & Melodies With Fingertip MIDI

just bought it for iphone. it was very unclear how the app is setup overal, did it send chord data or only single notes? After downloading and turning on the notes I now see that you can turn on the notes and see what you are playing. I expected to have a specific key vs being able to scroll through...

Re: Session drums multimic users

if you're willing to mix differently the new setup works ok... until you want to change the level of the room mic across the whole kit. Obviously not ideal. the only workaround I can think of... take the internal, overhead etc and drag them to a new pad. http://i.imgur.com/GeButCO.png now take all t...

Multi Midi-Channel VST out in ableton?

A vst like Kirnu Cream has the ability to output on different midi channels. Can I host the plugin in Live and route different midi channels to different instruments within Live? This is the routing that usually takes place, and as you can see it does not allow you to choose a midi channel. http://i...
