Re: Reading the contents from .asd files?

I was entirely correct! All I had to do was pick two warp markers and find: number of beats between the two markers (ie. the "beats" in beats per minute) and divide it by time difference in seconds between the two markers, divided by 60 to turn it into minutes (ie. the "per minute" in beats per minu...

Re: Reading the contents from .asd files?

If anyone was wondering, here is the article that @theophilus was referring to http://crooked-hideout.blogspot.com/2012/01/ableton-live-set-is-gzipped-xml-ruby.html I followed the same steps in the article and sure enough I was pleasantly surprised to find these magic numbers: <WarpMarker SecTime="0...

Re: Reading the contents from .asd files?

I believe I've found what you're referring to. It looks like this method only works on the .als files (that save a live set.) I tried renaming a .asd file to .gz and running it through gunzip at no avail, but I'm going to try parsing the .als file that contains all of the clips, in hopes that it wil...

Reading the contents from .asd files?

Hey all, I'll cut right to the chase and ask: What knowledge can you lend me about how ableton stores clip data in .asd files? Here's the back-story: I use Live to DJ and I'm writing a little software program to help keep my tracks organized. I'm not writing it in max, but this seemed the only appro...

Vitamin E - Sunshine (Original Trance Track)

I'm trying to practice and get better at starting from scratch, so I decided to do a project with 100% softsynths and midi data - the only things that were "sampled" are the high-hat loops and the reverse cymbal builds. All your advice/criticism is welcome - constructive or otherwise. http://soundcl...

Re: Super transparent filter vst?

It doesn't have to be linear phase - just something that won't cause frequency humps near the crossover points. When using Ableton's filters/eqs, as you change the crossover point, it's really easy to hear the little hump move - sounds just like sweeping a narrow Q ~3db boost on an EQ. I've tried to...

Super transparent filter vst?

I'm trying to make a rack for DJing and want to incorporate a bunch of frequency based effects - namely an auto-eq (multi-band sidechain comp - like Belvario's Smart Mixer) In order to do this, of course, I need some filters to split the frequency bands. I tried doing this with Ableton's built-in fi...

Re: Cusomizable Text Marker in a clip? Split + follow actions?

Ideally I'd be able to see it on the bar/beat markers at the top, but I could just as easily type in the bar# and keep track of it that way.

Any other suggestions? Til then I'll just use the info text area.

Cusomizable Text Marker in a clip? Split + follow actions?

Basically I want to be able to jot down little notes in a clip like I can in the timeline by adding a locator and giving it a name. Obviously this functionality isn't in Ableton (or is it?! lemme know.) so what would be the next best thing? Basically I need to make notes in the songs that I DJ with ...

Re: Please mix or remix any of my songs. I'll send the LivePack

When you say mix, do you mean mixing in a studio sense - like setting EQs, Compressors, Reverbs, Delays etc... Or DJ mixing, where the outro is mixed/overlapped with the intro of the next song? Either way, I'd be glad to mix some of your stuff; message me if you're interested. I work with mostly ele...

Maximizer similar to OGG Psychoacoustics?

I was thinking today: OGG and similar codecs work by omitting frequencies that cannot be heard due to masking and such, presumably resulting in added headroom... With this logic, do you guys think it would be feasible to make a maximizer that, as you turn the volume up, rather than limiting the ampl...

Re: FINAL VERSION heading my CD,

Before you read, bear in mind that this is all subjective - basically comparing your work against what I would like to hear, but normally my preferences are in line with whatever is playing on the radio. Firstly, it's nice to see another Ableton user making contemporary rock music. While I mostly ma...

Synthesis - Melodic Prog Trance

This started out as an effort to throw something together as quick as possible for my Synthesis class final project, and it ended up turning out pretty well.
