Re: Warping video tutorial for Ableton 8

Thank you! I just bought Live 8 this morning and was a little pissed about the new way of warping in relation to doing full tracks. I'm sure I will learn to love this way eventually, but this video definitely helped! Cheers.

If you really want to control the tempo like a turntable or CDJ then set the min value higher than the max value. That way when you move the slider down, the pitch goes up
(i.e set the min to 135 and the max to 120.)

I almost exclusively use 're-pitch.' I feel that the beats mode, while great for smaller loops, makes whole tracks a bit muddy if you stray more than 3 or 4 bpm from the native tempo. The 'complex' option in Live 5 takes away some of that muddiness, but vocals still sound a little different than the...

I get some wicked results using Reason's vocoder with the malstrom. Especially using the zerolizer patch on the malstrom.

Is this new Rain laptop anygood?

There was a laptop featured in the new Remix mag that sparked my interest. I am a PC person, but I was seriously considering purchasing a powerbook until I saw these babies. Does anybody on here own one or know somebody that owns one. They sound kick-ass.

You can find many of your answers by doing a forum search, but to answer it in one sentence: Ableton is the DJ platform of the future. 1. Get a Midi controller. I don't use a crossfader when I DJ so the Evolution UC-33 controller worked best for me. It has 8 volume sliders (comparable to an 8 channe...

Can't set range for song tempo

I've been trying to set the song tempo range from 115 to 140 so my controller would be more precise as I increased my tempo during a set, but it always stays in the range of 60 to 200. Does anybody else have this problem?

I am able to control everything!!!!

I just wanted to express my love for Live 5 because now I can use ALL of my midi controllers at one time (uc-33, x-session, oxygen 8, etc), change the cc #s so that there are no conflictions and control EVERYTHING in LIVE at the touch of a button.....I am so freakin happy right now!
