Re: Help With Expression Pedal

It's not odd at all. As I wrote in your other post, MIDI CC reception is 100% dependent on the receiving device. In fact that is true of all MIDI communications. EDITED: OK, I sat down and messed around with Sampler, a few other native devices and third party plugins. 1. None of the native Ableton d...

Re: CC11 (Expression)

swanny8777, Since you came over here from your other thread, I'll point out why the OP had trouble four years ago. From the Zebra manual: While auditioning presets you should always try the performance controls velocity, pitch bend, modulation wheel and pressure. Many presets are also programmed to ...

Re: Help With Expression Pedal

Your problem is you are trying to MIDI map the expression pedal. Live reads CCs just fine without requiring Remote to be activated, your mod wheel works, right? The problem is your software instruments, not the keyboard. Some instruments respond to CC#11 by default, some can be configured to do so, ...

click in the Scrub Area (right below the Beat Time Ruler).
This works even when the transport is running. I use this method more than any other.

Re: Midi Port Settings Don't Seem To Save

Are you saving the template after you make the edits? The only time I lose my port settings is when a particular MIDI device is not connected when I launch Live. So I always turn all my MIDI devices on before I launch Live...problem solved. If everything is connected through the MOTU interface and y...

Re: NO SOUND PLS HELP

There's a tutorial built into Live on setting up your audio...have you gone through it? Most problems with high latencies are from user error.

Re: Audio fuller/louder when routing out Battery and Omnisphere

Louder, maybe, fuller...well try comparing both tracks at the same level. Louder always sounds fuller. It's the way our brains perceive sound.

So you are claiming that the volume difference only happens with Battery and Omnisphere but not with any other instruments routed to audio tracks?

Re: Midi Editing: Pedal to Note Length ?

It's also an option in Logic, but not in Ableton.

Re: Why is there no rewind and fast-forward in Live?

I'll play devil's advocate even though I use FF and REW all the time with Live. DAW transports are just a holdover from the days of tape. With tape you needed FF/REW because you coudn't jump to a different location instantaneously. Even locators came from tape, the last few generations of studio mac...

Re: best audio driver for Mac

Did you install the Roland drivers? The user manual says they are required, none of the Roland instruments are USB class compliant.

Re: Trying to find a suitable string orchestra for backing tracks

Google the term divisi. This is where many string libraries fall short. Only expensive ones seem to support this.

Re: Acid Wav Loops to Midi convert best way?

Please explain what you mean by by "convert to MIDI". Are you asking about using pitch to MIDI conversion or something else entirely?

Re: Komplete Kontrol s88 mk2 cant map hardware buttons / knobs to ableton instruments

It's in NI's court as far as support, not Ableton.

There is a script here at KVR that claims to be able to control Live's native devices.

APC40 mkII controlling devices

I have a question for APC40 mkII owners.

When controlling devices other than macros, how do you deal with not knowing what parameter is under control before twisting the encoders. Do you just figure it out by trial and error and then memorize it or write out a cheat sheet for each device?
