Re: separate midi channels

Thanks but I think its the other way round for type 0 vs 1, see manual: SMF0 All MIDI data is stored in one track only, separated exclusively by the MIDI channel. If such a file is imported into Live, all MIDI data will appear in one track. SMF1 The MIDI data is stored in separate tracks/channels. I...

Ableton Link for jams with key changes

I have a dream. I and all of you are in a band thats basically the Star Wars Cantina band ie we're having some future jazz experimental alien wigout jam session. And we're in sync, we're melodic, and we change key all at the same time on our various space age devices. Even though we're not all musos...

Re: Is speaker popping dangerous, or just an unpleasant sound?

Actually I don't think its that bad. At my university I was part of The Dirty Electronics Ensemble. We would build bespoke 'dirty' electronic instruments and synths and perform with them, each having a small genelec speaker as our output. Many people were popping, unplugging and re-plugging the spea...

Coldcut BeatByte for Launchpad

Dear Ableton heads A while ago Coldcut got Mr. Joey Paranoia to put it together a simple 8x8 slice sequencer using Launchpad and Ableton Live. Heres a demo. http://youtu.be/l-zwUZJXc -It's like an 8 track drum machine but each step of the drum can be different -8 channels using 8x 1 bar loops each s...

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SAVE MIDI ASSIGNS WITH RACKS

this has been killing me and- judging by the forums- plenty of users, for years. I am so bored of having to work round this with saving anything I want to assign in my template set. It wastes loads of time, its clumsy and inefficient. This MUST be solvable. I've tried the other workrounds, they dont...

Re: How to save a mapping for VST synth ?

This really needs sorting. Its 3 years later and it still doesnt work, as far as we can see. and , this applies to to Lives own fx! you just cannot save the midi assigns outside the set. Its really odd that Ableton have not sorted this. And, btw, it looks as if the macro mapping doesnt work either. ...

re:balance

could I humbly suggest that all Live effects racks should include a balance control which for each racks default is set so that the db level output by the rack when on is the same as when it is off. this avoids unpredictable and unpleasant drops and peaks in level when switching an effect rack in , ...

Ableton 8.1 and Behringer bcr2000 on Mac

Hi Matt from Coldcut here, working on a new mix! I am trying to use the bcr2000 with Live to control plugins. I have it selected as a control surface, and also selected it for Input and Output Remote in Midi prefs. I can assign knobs and buttons on the controller to parameters in Live no problem. Bu...

Re: Midi Time Code

Live does not send MTC, i think, only receives it. Hence my question...MTC out would be a good enhancement for Live , as MTC is very useful when doing video work, and its good to have Live as master...
