Wavetable: I want to scale modulation depth with other modulators.

It's pretty standard on many synths that you can scale the depth of the Filter Envelope > Cutoff routing with Velocity, rather than the (less useful) direct routing of Velocity > Cutoff. Wavetable only provides the ability to do the latter of these, though. In fact you can't scale any modulations wi...

Wavetable - scale envelopes with velocity

Currently you can only assign Velocity to modulate cutoff directly -- which is sort of a primitive setup, really. The more 'typical' (and certainly more flexible + dynamic) approach is to modulate filter cutoff with an envelope, and then scale that envelope depth via velocity . Many, many synths hav...

Re: Loading old (saved) clips crashes live constantly.

support should know... it's a workaround but does opening them in an older version of Live, saving them off then opening them in the current version work to save your old work? is there maybe a plug-in in there somewhere in your old stuff that makes Live choke? Per the second point: there's no way ...

Loading old (saved) clips crashes live constantly.

So... I like to save a lot of clips. Now I'm getting punished for it. Because Live -- current, 10.1.6 -- crashes whenever I try to load older clips into a session ((specifically: locate clip in user library, drag into session or arrangement, live crashes). Saving clips is normally great practice -- ...

SEQ1 sequencer...no download link on website, help?

Hi folks, I saw somebody using this M4L device in a Youtube video, and I REALLY want it! However, the originally hosted wordpress page for it no longer has links to actually download the file :( It's a classic analog-style note sequencer based on the Korg SQ1. Here is the Maxforlive.com page for it:...

Re: Most important Instruments/Plugins that PROs use often?

You wanna know what the PROs do?

1. They work hard and don't look for easy short-cuts to success

2. They figure out what works best for them personally instead of asking in internet forums what PROs use.

Re: Wavetable: why can't I remove mod routings from matrix?

It works here: https://i.imgur.com/ekWKwgL.gif Gotta click the knobs/sliders in the GUI, not in the matrix. I guess it is because otherwise rows could keep disappearing when you switched params in the matrix, before you set up all the modulations you want, which would be way more annoying. (BTW, I ...

Wavetable: why can't I remove mod routings from matrix?

Hi, As the subject says -- am I the only one who finds it strange / unpleasant that once a mod routing is added to the matrix, it can never be removed for that patch? You can null the mod depth, yes, but you cant remove the routing itself.. I do *a lot* of programming experimentation when working on...

Re: Workaround for organizing FAVORITE samples & instruments?

For some reason everyone leaps to imagine the very shittest taxonomic classification system when imagining metadata. Nobody "tags" that way. Its stupid. If developers ask users if they'd like to spend their time "tagging" then of course the answer will be NO. For good reason. Nobody wants to do tha...

Re: Workaround for organizing FAVORITE samples & instruments?

I use the User Library and create folders inside it as needed, much as you do, but not to the same degree of, uh, organizational agony. I despise tag-based systems and have no idea why people want or like them. I think tagging is far more tedious / extra-work-creating than simply dragging and droppi...

Do you mean even with the current changes made to the beta? The return of the arrows made my day. I'm behind on the betas and must have missed something in the releases notes, I guess. I'll check it out tonight; but what do you mean by "arrows" ? The old method had the little "+" to add new automat...

Re: Are the changes to Arrangment View in L10 helping you?

As a very heavy user of automation, I am deeply pissed that I can no longer view specific automation tracks over-top and/or underneath specific tracks in the 'normal' Arrangement view (e.g. without this new 'toggle' behavior). AFAIC it's a downgrade of behavior and a huge bummer. I vastly prefer the...

Re: Trilian for electric and upright bass?

IMHO, Trilian blows away all the NI content. I have Komplete Ultimate, so I've tested out all the Scarbee stuff. I use Trilian all the time, and I never touch the Scarbee stuff anymore. It's just not as good! Trilian also has more flexibility and depth. But the botton line for me is that it just sou...
