Re: Sending MIDI CC to active chain only?

I can only imagine it's a bug. I mean it says "chain selector filters MIDI ctrl", but it doesn't. If you find a better workaround let me know.....

Re: Sending MIDI CC to active chain only?

OK so the workaround I can think of is Put your VST in a sub rack inside the rack Map the parameters you want to Macros in the sub rack (not the main rack) Use blue hand to select the sub rack you want (the sub rack not the VST) Only those macros will then be affected not macros on other tracks Limi...

Re: "Consolidate Time to New Scene" with automation?

You could route the group into a separate audio track using the track I/O (this track will now be just a bus for the group) and put the compressor in that track instead. credit due: this isn't my original suggestion, it was suggested by yur2die4 on another thread relating to return channels (where y...

Re: "Consolidate Time to New Scene" with automation?

I had a bit of a panic when I saw this as I use this function a fair bit and I wondered if there was a bug or something. Turns out it works if the automation lock button on the top right is turned off in arrangement. If you consolidate to new scene with it turned on automation does not copy, turned ...

Re: Audio Dropout on "first Kick" - Live9 MIDI and Audio!!!???

I had this, it turned out to be Live's auto fades. If you look in preferences record/warp/launch and find that "create fades on clip edges" is on, try turning it off. Even the very short fades that Live applies can affect drum transients in both MIDI and audio. If it is that you have a choice - leav...

Re: Korg SQ-1 problem

This is normal with the SQ-1, for reasons best known to themselves Korg do not allow it to send and recieve MIDI at the same time via USB (including MIDI clock). No. It's not great. No. I have no idea why. I get around it by using a Volca Beats, which syncs with Ableton via MIDI in the normal way, t...

Create a MIDI track
Drag the audio you want to slice into the instrument window at the bottom
It will appear in a simpler

Re: LIVE 10.1 New Delay Sounds Different

I've noticed that it responds differently to automation. I have a 1/16 sync delay in a set I use for performance that occasionally switches to 1/8 with sync division controlled by the Max API object (which is itself automated). After upgrade the same settings produced 1/8 delays going to 1/4. Tweaki...

Re: Arghhh

If it's on adaptive the grid settings will get finer as you zoom in. If you're on fixed grid they won't. So from your post I think you want to set it to fixed.

Re: Why No Send/Return Track Clips for Looping Automation?

Also you can use the Max API device to automate parameters in other tracks if you have Suite. So you can e.g. use a clip in a normal audio track to automate things in a return track. I agree it would be a lot easier if you could just have automation clips in return tracks but as with so many things ...

Re: Live 10.1

Just noticed there seems to be a top bar and waveform/MIDI part for each track on the arrange page again (like in 9 but self coloured). So pleased if this is right, it makes editing when not in automation mode so much easier.

Re: Slice to Sampler question

.asd files are Live's record of slice points, warp points etc. - not audio files at all. You need to keep them.

Re: Performing live with minimal latency(real instruments)

Try increasing to 96k 256ms or 512ms you might be surprised Yeah this can work. Latency is created when samples are delayed going through the system but most processing is clocked to sample rate (i.e. latency is a processing delay of a number of samples) so increasing the sample rate will reduce la...

Re: Performing live with minimal latency(real instruments)

Use input monitoring on the vocal track, make sure reduced latency when monitoring is on in the options menu, don't use any high latency plugins to process your vocals (especially if using a pitch corrector use use the version optimised for live use, there will usually be one e.g. Autotune has a fai...

Re: Live 10.1

I'm going to pitch in against the scissor tool. Logic with its multiple pointless toolbars does my head in. cmd+E or swipe drag does everything you need.

Did someone mention there is a Live 10.1 or something?
