Re: problems using a USB hub for audio or midi

concerning noise, is it related to the softstep EL blue backlighting? Have you turned it off in the softstep software? I have a noise issue when it is on, as do several others as I understand.

Re: Adjusting track levels with a controller, with an offset

Leaving the compressor in listen mode has been working great for me for reaching similar solutions. No drawback as far as I know.

Re: USB HUB

When looking for a powered hub (recommended if anything you have needs power) get one with the most power you can find. The specs and/or power supply should tell you. This one is 4A (amps) which I think is among the highest. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182208 the max a u...

these actually work, not sure about the powering issue though. Maybe a powered hub near the launch pad would do the trick.

record automation but not audio possible?

I would like to record automation but not the audio. Anyone know if this is possible? The reason for this is that I record my sets, often 1-3 hours long, with up to 20 tracks. Sometimes I've had problems with Ableton successfully recording the audio when file size gets very large. So instead I would...

Re: ipad vnc app with proper click & drag behavior?

Iteleport is one I was looking at, but it doesn't have a demo and is $25. It does have both touchpad and touchscreen mode though. Curiously, the click and drag nonlinear behavior issue happens in my tests on faders/knobs in Sonar and Ableton, but not on the faders of my RME audio interface software ...

Re: ipad vnc app with proper click & drag behavior?

I agree VNC is not ideal for dynamic live performance, but for adjustments to levels, eq, etc for pre show sound check and during, it can be handy. The AC-7 app which emulates a mackie control surface also works very well for mixing tasks, but when I need complete access remotely to add devices, cha...

ipad vnc app with proper click & drag behavior?

Anyone have an ipad vnc app that behaves properly when click and dragging on an ableton fader/knob? RealVNC (on my netbook) does behave properly when in the "relative pointer motion" mode. They have an ipad version with this mode, only disadvantage is that it only operates in touchpad mode, not touc...
