Using ableton instruments (Not operator, analog, etc.)

I use impulse for my drums and I'm kinda new to using the ableton internal instruments and am looking for some tips. do people generally write music and then export (say a 32 bar loop at a particular tempo) and then re-bring that sample into ableton to mix with other elements? I've always just added...

Re: My newest Ableton creation - a prog trance track

great track, love the synth work, got a lot of different elements too, definitely progressive. btw, you can always go back and rework the track and make certain elements louder (the drums), but this track is epic, nice stuff.

Re: Crazy Live Setup from Deadmau5

One of the things that I do not agree is when he say that "You cannot play Live with the same quality if you playback your productions". I thing the most "Production" effects can be performed live... My point is more about the $$$$ on the setup, the Live set seems not so complicated to me, it's sim...

No native Mac apps will run on it. However some kind of Lemur style apps will no doubt be created.
I feel like Lemur-style apps would be so clutch since the Lemur is like $2k and the iPad is only $499...

Apple iPad + Live?

The new Apple iPad is coming out soon and I am wondering if Live will be capable of running on it. If it is possible, would that mean that you could just touch the screen to trigger clips? I feel like Live won't be able to run on it (atleast the full version), but it seems like it could be something...

Injecting life into your drums?

I've been producing now with Ableton for over a year and half, but just recently over the past few months have I actually started programming/writing my own drums in Ableton (Impulse). My problem is not the patterns, but it just seems sometimes that no matter what I do my drums seem lifeless at time...

Re: Using 2 controllers on 1 Computer with one version of Live

Absolutely. You can use as may controllers as you like simultaneously with Live. You can use the controllers either in "Control Surface" mode or just plain MIDI Mapping mode, or combinations thereof. word, thanks for the response. I mean I have two usb ports so it seemed like it would work. I just ...

What do you do when you get burned out on makin music?

I've been producing tunes in ableton now for over a year and it seems like sessions come and go. one week i'll be all about making tracks and then it seems like i have to take a week+ off from even touching ableton or listening to anything I've created. Although every time I get stuck and take a bre...

Using 2 controllers on 1 Computer with one version of Live

I currently have Live 7 on my PC and recently got a new macbook pro and am about to purchase a version of Ableton Live 8 and I am wondering if I have the ability to use two controllers simultaneously with Ableton. One would be the APC 40 and the second would be some form of keyboard (most likely an ...
