Re: Yamaha Mox8 and Ableton Live 10

Windows or Mac?

On a Mac open up the Audio/MIDI Setup utility and make sure the MOXF8 is recognized there.

Can't help you with Windows.

Re: Ableton problems with external synth connected via USB

Try power cycling the Blofeld instead of restarting Live and see if that works. I had the Blofeld module and never had any USB MIDI issues with it, definitely not what you are seeing. The OS even after all the revs still was buggy esp. with respect to clock synching of the arpeggiator and LFOs. A fe...

Re: Ableton Live 10 Suite: Midi Keyboard and Latency

Latency is always due to the audio interface and related drivers. Like TLW, I use a 64 sample buffer setting and get very low latency with both Live and Logic. I'm using an iMac, quad i5, it's about 6 years old so not super fast. Previous to the iMac I used a MacBook Pro from 2009, with only a Core ...

Re: Ableton / Polyend Poly / Modular Pitch

Welcome to the wild world of modular. CV is not a standard and never will be. What does 0V mean? It means whatever the oscillator is currently tuned to . Then 1 volt is an octave higher, etc. It's totally up to the Polyend what voltage will get generated by what MIDI note. Live has nothing to do wit...

Re: Hardware mixer for Ableton

Five Reaktor instruments on five miditracks in Ableton and with the hardware mixer I would be able to control the volume of the five tracks at the same time but also would be able to control five parameters for each track at the same time. Controlling the volume is easy: use groups . Controlling pa...

Re: NI Komplete Kontrol M32?

Oh, so the manual is talking about plugins inside the Komplete Kontrol instance, then. Got it. Knew it sounded too good to be true :wink:

Re: NI Komplete Kontrol M32?

According to p.115 of the M32 manual, it can control native devices in Live, much in the way an APC40 does. Are the comments above saying this does not actually work properly yet?

Re: First midi-keyboard/DAW-controller

Maybe someone here has an M32, it's only been out for about two months.

You should read the manual. It does have a fair amount of control for Live, see p.115.

Re: First midi-keyboard/DAW-controller

Looking at the pros/cons, which ones are important to you ? I've never used drum pads much, so no pads is OK with me. But I'm not you. I don't use an iPad, do you? Etc. The real reason to buy the M32 is you use a lot of Native Instruments plugins. All the NI controllers are focused on their plugins....

Re: Novation Launchkey 61 + M-Audio EX-P Pedal Sustain Problems

Any sustain pedal other than a Yamaha pedal will work. M-Audio ones are fine.

Re: Novation Launchkey 61 + M-Audio EX-P Pedal Sustain Problems

The Launchkey only has a connection for a sustain pedal, not an expression pedal. An expression pedal will not work as a sustain pedal. Get a sustain pedal, there are plenty of super cheap ones out there.

Re: Moving Logic X EXS24 sampled instruments into Ableton?

I'm just grateful that Sampler can import any non-native formats. I helped Chickensys with testing when they were developing a translator for the Yamaha Motif. They really do try to get their stuff to work properly but it's an endless task...even within a single format eventually there will be some ...

Re: Going Native...

People get way too hung up on tools. If you think about the history of recording music, people made do with limited track counts on tape and having to play everything in real time while creating timeless classics. All DAWs have really done is make everything cheaper, easier and more convenient to do...

Re: Do you have to buy the Sampler?

There are plugins that play soundfonts. Sforzando is a free player that can load SFZ, SF2, DLS and Acidized WAVs. It supports both VST and AU, 32 or 64 bit.
