Re: Voicing the A minor chord - BEAUTIFUL!!!!

abletonaaayy, zup bruz chord device, set one to 3, 5, 7, 10, 14, and 17. if you look closely at the video, these are all of the relative intervals to his root, A. He's playing an A minor chord, with a minor7th, minor9th, minor4th, and an octave above the minor4th (right?). if you play single notes, ...

Re: Best Sounding DAW

why are dudes who don't like ableton posting on the ableton forum?

I put a dowel rod on a lil dc motor, didn't sound too hot. also my drumset is out of tune.

I also need new shoelaces, mine ripped.

Re: any DX7 / TX7 users out there? (hardware!)

i absolutely love my dx7! the keyboard is totally tits. i fly all over it, it's my midi controller for live and my sh-32 as well. i never really understood what people meant when they said it's hard to program fm. parameters change sounds, it's just like every other synth ever. it IS tedious to prog...

Re: Why is ableton so freaking quite?!

i like how no one even attempted to help you! you can't teeecchnically boost the volume without affecting the quality, but there are some tricks. one is sidechain! sidechain your pads and keys to your kick drum. sometimes it can help to sidechain the bassline to the kick too, but that can muddy thin...

Re: Tutorial - Granular Synthesis in Ableton Live

sweet! something else along those lines... get your audio file in a simpler. big brackets are around the entire amount of sound you want to mess with. Set the loop really tiny, with the fade all the way fading, so you got a nice little smooth tone, the modulate (or play!) the loop size and the start...

Re: Whats that effect? Again.
