loss of delay automation when consolidating audio

When i consolidate audio in the arrangement window some of the automation for the pingpong delay plays back incorrectly; the delay is a hundred percent on playback after consolidating where as it originally increased gradually. This error does not happen if i play back just before the automation occ...

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

anyone figure out how to navigate to the SEND TRACKS for device control since there is no track selection for these? is this even possible without using the mouse or making a custom map? If I understand what you want to do correctly is have the 8 bottom knobs map to whatever effect is on your retur...

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

This unit is really great. I was amazed at how seamlessly things went in using it. 1) I was very surprised that there seems to be an automap function for VST plug-ins. I was not expecting that. Problem is--how do you know what the 8 knobs are controlling before moving the knobs. (The same issue exi...

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

i so want to fork out the cash (GC CC) to get 8....wish they had a coupon for buy one get 100 off ableton full deal. I agree! Selling limited versions of the software is really annoying. Just send us a coupon with it. Upgrading from the software provided is much cheaper than buying 8 outright...wha...

Re: How can I make my buttons triggers instead of toggles?

Dummy clips don't work in this scenario because they have to be quantized.

I have Bome's but I want a better work around because it introduces latency which sucks for performing.

I guess I will have to wait for max for live...

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

Change your Clip Launch mode to "Gate". Ooops, hold on a minute, I didn't read the post closely enough. Thought you were trying to launch clips. Would it work if you routed the clip through a dummy clip that had your effect, if the dummy clip were set to "Gate"? I tried that but then you have to ma...

Making MIDI more customizable

It would be amazing if you could edit MIDI parameters. For instance: Make a button Trigger or Toggle or Slider Relative or Absolute. This is so easy to implement and would allow the people performing live so much more control. All I want to be able to do is set a trigger button for my FX on/off. So ...

Re: How can I make my buttons triggers instead of toggles?

There is a guy doing this on the akai website www.apc40.com

Check out the video by Stephan Vankov.

I just got an APC-40 and the buttons just send note on/off like any other controller. I don't think that he is using your work around. It sounds like he is triggering beatrepeats and glitch effects.

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

QUESTION for Jesse: Is there anyway to make the buttons on the APC 'momentary' so that I can trigger an effect by holding the button down and then turning it off when my finger is up. There is a guy on the APC website doing this (Stephan Vankov). I have been trying to do this with controllers for so...

How can I make my buttons triggers instead of toggles?

Here's the deal, I know you can do it for clips...but I want to be able to do it for FX. So anyone know how I can make FX on/off trigger (so it turns on when i press and hold and turns off when i lift my finger) Basically note on turns on the FX and note off turns it off. I have seen other people do...

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

but I couldn't control VST instruments I tried from other companies. In Live 8 they have this new feature where your external VST's and Instruments have a "Configure" button when you hit the arrow at the top (It used to just open up every parameter for MIDI assignment). Then each parameter you touc...
