Re: PIANO ROLL PETITION

Live Essentials Suite? That sounds like one of their main products. I'll look for it though, thanks. One thing that bugs me but may be my own fault, is the lack of labelling on the piano roll. It seems like the notes should interface with the VST to autodisplay what the note lanes correspond to. Sta...

Collect and Save issues

So, I just ran a collect and save operation, for reasons anyone familliar with the software will grasp (to collect samples added). While Ableton is doing this, it decides it wants to update a 7 year old live 8 or 7 file that I have in A RESERVE FOLDER, NOT THE SAMPLES OR OTHER ABLETON FOLDERS. WHY? ...

Re: Upgrade Piano Roll to match FL's for a better User Experience

Ableton's piano roll, or midi editor, whichever you want to call it is a disaster FAR below the solid functionality of the rest of this software. There is simply ZERO excuse for offering midi detect on drum beats (which only works for kick and snare I might add), and not tying that into a decent and...

Max doesn't retain settings

Can someone at Ableton explain to me why this big supposed improvement to Ableton was supposed to be that Max was included? It doesn't retain saved settings, at least in the Convolution Reverb and I bet it doesn't retain any other max settings either. So I'm told the solution is to download Max sepa...

Latency bad after Catalina/Live 10 upgrade

My latency is noticeably worse across the board. What's different than before is that before the latency correction would work, now it seems to do 50% of the job, if anything. The other thing that NEVER happened in the past is there is visual latency all the time. I play a song, and watch the tracks...

Re: PIANO ROLL PETITION

I don't really know where to start, but this much is true. Ableton's midi editing environment is a straight up blindness-inducing horror show, and I'm livid it wasn't improved AT ALL in the upgrade to 10. Of course there was no way to know this but I figured SOMETHING would be improved! Ableton Live...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

I'm really bent about this last update. First off, they dock the most loyal buyers, the suite buyers, an extra $100 dollars for what, exactly? A synth? That isn't any better than anyone else's synth, in fact, a good deal worse. That should've just been a loyalty bonus. WOW, max is folded in! B F D! ...

Re: whats the best sample editor to get?

Since I posted this, I became more familiar with Simpler, which I can use to dump a sample into, and sort of set in points on the fly, and that works to a large extent for a 'Live' performance, and I don't have to cut any samples whatsoever. I freely admit I don't know everything there is to know ab...

Re: Convert to midi drums / Midi Velocities

Thanks for this tip, but I'm using the convert to midi on entire songs. I actually haven't done much transient placing, so if you could elaborate more in depth, or send me a good overview, that would be great. I'm really appallled by how the midi control is in Ableton. There are giant gaps in the fu...

Convert to midi drums / Midi Velocities

Greetings, I'm using the convert to MIDI for drums feature, still in Ableton 9, and what I'm getting out: A. does not seem accurate in terms of velocities, though it IS mostly accurate in terms of hits/notes. B. When I view the velocities, they don't come out separated, which to me, seems like a com...

Lack of a real mute button per tracks

OK, I've had enough of deleting my track on/off automation or creating a new track, when, for instance, I want all the vocals already done muted. Someone explain to me how I mute ten tracks of vocals without losing the on/off automation. I guess I just figured it out. Group all those tracks, and TUR...

Re: Volume Faders midi mapping poorly

I spoke too soon. I changed some settings in the midi preferences, now everything is cc, and the faders work, but not the knobs. How do I select cc or notes? Thanks.

Re: Volume Faders midi mapping poorly

I tried this, and I found where to change the parameters from infinity to -60, but it's just jumping between the bounds, nothing gradual. Makes everything useless. Faders are mapping fine in Traktor. Blast you, ableton! I mean, cmon, custom controller. I guess I need to check if something is missing...
