Re: Can Ableton do this?

You can do a send & return setup all within an instrument rack if you wish using the sidechain comp method. All of my Instrument racks have a self contained send / return setup for each individual song. I can send any chain to the internal return. All the info is here: https://forum.ableton.com/view...

Re: Clipping between devices in an instrument rack

I love the Sonlksis Free G for this very reason too, very handy plug-in. I've actually made some preset racks for particular plug-ins with poor or no metering that include the Free G.

Re: Do you know how to read your meters? -18dBfs theory?

Exactly. That there are devices that react dynamically was the main point I made. Ahh, so that was the point you were trying to make, you simply sounded like someone that had no idea how Saturator worked. Of course you cant assume that a higher or lower volume is better on a plug-in that reacts dyn...

Re: Do you know how to read your meters? -18dBfs theory?

Your results make perfect sense for Saturator. The saturation effect is enhanced by an increasing/decreasing input signal. That is what the drive knob is for, think of it as a Volume knob. Changing the input using a Utility beforehand is going to give you the same effect as changing the drive knob. ...

Re: Do you know how to read your meters? -18dBfs theory?

If you’re using analogue hardware such as EQ, Mixers, Compressors etc with your DAW then -18dbFS is excellent advice, if you aren’t, then I believe it to be a non-issue. As Angstrom said, there is nothing wrong with following this guys advice, it’s actually OK, but people rarely take the time to und...

Re: L9 vs L8 launch which was the most broken ?

i didn't vote either way as V8 & V9 have both been pretty rock solid for me. i didn't jump on board with V8 until 8.07 and by that stage knew about any of the browser issues so the transition was smooth. i've been on V9 right from the start without any issues either. 2 weeks ago i upgraded 15 imacs ...

Re: Melodyne in Ableton 9

melodyne works great for me as a vst plug-in within live 9 on osx. once your vocals are consolidated in live, you've recorded them into the melodyne plug-in and fixed any issues you have 2 options. 1. just allow the melodyne plugin to continue playback of the fixed parts. i find this confusing as wh...
