Re: Bending notes

Ok. So I think I now understand that bending notes via glide can only be done in simpler and sampler. But what about instruments that are in the instrument rack? Like ambient pad-fall and strings? They don't have a glide option, and the pitch bend mentioned above is really not the sound I'm after. T...

Re: Bending notes

Hi I'm using an ambient sound in Live 8 and would like to know what is the best way of bending notes into one another? I've tried changing the pitch in reverbs and resonators on a single note, but the notes are clearly defined when the pitch gets shifted. I'd rather a smooth blended in note bend. A...

My tracks

These are the first few tracks I've ever done using Ableton. I gather there are quite a few dance music fans here, so you're probably not going to like them that much. Also, at the end of the first track, the recording seems to cut out a few times. Any idea whats going on there? cheers: www.myspace....

Help!

Yep.Me again.sorry. I'm having trouble with version 8. For some reason my strings keep dropping out. They are there when I save and close the file, but then when I reopen it, they appear to be there in the arrangement view and session view but do not play at all. There is no green bar indicating sou...

Re: Bass and Strings soudn awful. Any tips?

Hi, "I've only had Ableton a few days and am teaching myself really. I have version 8 I've done a few compositions but I just cannot seem to get a good Bass sound or a good string sound." Hi, Ignore the idiot on about mixing - that has nothing to do with it (well maybe a bit when it comes to bass)....

Re: Bedroom Orchestra

Oh my lord. That is quite amazing.

I've only been using ableton for 10 days but if I ever produce anything half as good as that I'll be happy.

Great work.
