Re: good monitors??

I have the KRK VXT 6 and you cant go wrong. See if you can stretch your budget and go for the KRKs you can most afford.

Re: problems with apc40

Have you tried removing all other USB, turning on Ableton and then plugging in the APC40? I know a simple solution, but worth a try and helped me once.

Chaning Track Names

If I change a track name in session view, how can I ensure that the track names also changes in my file broswer (or from the original source on the hard drive)?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Mixed in Key & Ableton

Thanks so far for the info guys, much appreciated. Can anyone tell me if I warp using repitch, can I still use MIK? My thinking being that if I analyse my tracks it will be different to what is played in Ableton because they have been repitched? (Hope this makes sense?) Anyone using key software, ho...

Mixed in Key & Ableton

Really thinking about buying this and would appreciate any feedback that people have who DJ with Ableton mixed in key. Would also like to know how people warp their tracks? If I do them in repitch, would I be able to use MIK? Any experiences greatly appreciated.

They all appear to be spot on and run with the metronome from start to fnish. I have some small loops at the end of the tracks and on a couple when I trigger th...

Problems with Snow Leopard & Native Audio 8

Since I installed Snow Leopard, when using the APC40 I get lots of drops and glitches, that I never got before. I have installed latest versions of Ableton and Snow Leopard, but still no luck. Tonight I noticed the only driver selection I get is NoAudio or CoreAudio? I am sure I could chose ASIO for...
