Re: FCB1010 Midi-sync with Ableton problem!!

One of the midi plugs from the adaptor you have must be labeled as "IN" and the other one as "OUT". If you're not getting a signal with the way it is connected now, try switching the connection. To see if you're getting a signal at all: 1. Create a MIDI track 2. Select the input to be ALL midi devic...

Re: FCB1010 Midi-sync with Ableton problem!!

Are you on a Mac? I recommend you use: http://www.wabbitwanch.com/iFCB.html There's a similar one for the PC, google it. Using this will also help you test if you have communication between the computer and the FCB. I use the FCB extensively and never had any problems making it work (both programmin...

Re: Ableton as a mixer/processor for live gigs

How many channels? how many effects? How many outputs?

Re: Ableton as a mixer/processor for live gigs

I've tried doing that and I still haven't been able to make it work properly, there's the latency factor caused by things running through Live, and depending on the number of effects you have, there's also the risk clipping and Live even crashing for the load. It's happened to me, but then again, it...

Re: WARNING TO POTENTIAL CANADIAN BUYERS

Why don't you buy the product from a canadian distributor? I've purchased online from canadian distributors without any issues. Also you can find this directly from stores in town (I'm in Montreal) - you'll be surprised that due to the loonie being higher than the USD you'll find even cheaper prices...

Re: drum dynamics and response from midi drums.

Warrior Bob, how's the latency working with you? Can you perform live with your setup? Are you connecting the TD-6 using USB Or MIDI? We've been encountering serious latency issues and haven't figured out how to address them.

Re: PLEASE HELP w/midi latency to/from roland vdrums

I found the answer to these problems, which Ableton pretty much tells us to "live with it". In the User's Guide, starting on page 524, they have their MIDI Fact Sheet. Quite informative and at least ends with the frustration of dealing with what seemed to be an unknown. The tests they ran are simila...

Re: PLEASE HELP w/midi latency to/from roland vdrums

I've ran into the same latency issues with MIDI on Ableton for about 2 years now, mentioned it on the forum and even created a bug report and the problem still exists. The problem occurs not only with Drums but other inputs. I've tested with keyboard inputs as well as Roland's TD-3 with triggers and...

Re: 8.1.3???

hahaha That's the best LIVE show I've ever seen! - Exactly us in 40 years after going broke for buying all the Ableton controllers and releases that come out and then one day not being able to use them at all as the company just decides it's had enough with whiney customers LOL... a whole bunch of s...

Re: 8.1.3???

I think I have to counter the argument below which I think it's a bit unfair. We're raising the flags and complaining but come on! They don't owe us their lives, seems they just had a crappy software development iteration which does happen to every single software company (i've worked in software de...

Re: 8.1.3???

Great 8.1.3. But what happened to 8.1.2? Did the good guys at Ableton give up on that one? Last I could find was that it was in beta 7, then nothing, and the Downloads on the main page doesn't have that... Can somebody at Ableton clarify this? Thanks!

Re: Help! Unwanted patch change midi messages

IMHO - Use a midi monitor program to determine if your keyboards are sending 'Program Change' messages (CC#1 -?? i think). There can be midi 'noize' from some keyboards/ controllers. I've used midimonitor (snoize.com) to check midi messages a few times. I have a Novation Remote25 that has one pot t...

Re: Help! Unwanted patch change midi messages

Can anyone here please help? I am running Ableton Live 6.0.1 via an RME Fireface 400 on a fairly new MacBook Pro (about 18 months old). I use a Korg CX3 and a Kurzweil PC2X and use Ableton mainly to trigger soft synths. I've found recently that while playing either the Korg or the Kurzweil that the...

Re: Integrating Live with a band on stage

Hi, I have everything set up according to your recommendations (IAC driver, MIDI-trigger track, MIDI-map to notes, next scene on launch). I still have one problem though - when the "trigger" track triggers the next scene it doesn't actually start the scene it just arms it and the clip buttons begin...
