Re: Akai MPD and MPK pad mods - tips for better pad sensitivity

In the process of fixing the pad response on MPK 88 also switching to red pads wshile the thing is taken apart. The sensor "upgrades" are little black rubber squares that will be placed uder each pad on top of each sensor. hopefully this thing will really have the mpc feel afterward

Re: APC40 + APC20

I had an APC 40 but switched out for the 20 because I was not using all the knobs/pots more into the faders and clip trigger buttons. I tend though to carry/use the apc 20 mobile with the laptop outside of the home studio since the akai mpk 88 has the faders and transport controls so use them in the...

Re: How to make real music with the music that I have in mind?

In ableton set up a midi track with whatever instrument sound you want to start your track with put the "scale" effect on it choosing a key then apply the "chord" effect try "5ths" choose a tempo, you could beatbox and tap the tempo button 4 times to get a tempo you like start recording playing one ...

Re: use REASON 5 demo in live 8 and avoid the 20 minute limit!!

When I run Record in Rewire I can get the first track in Live, then when I create a new instrument in Record and a new track in Live it is still the same instrument 1 sound in the new Abelton track. I have done alot of searching and cant figure this out. I know it is probably a stupid easy thing I ...

Re: use REASON 5 demo in live 8 and avoid the 20 minute limit!!

Wow, are you even making music when your using a tool like that? Just randomly slapping the keyboard and hitting no false notes? It's a neat feature though, but I can live without it. By the way, does ableton have any great synths or do you really need to use vsti to get good results. Well, I mean ...

Re: use REASON 5 demo in live 8 and avoid the 20 minute limit!!

I have Reason 5 and record 1.5 and I definitely recommend it. I don't have ableton live though, that's why I'm scanning the forums to see what people do and think about it. First post by the way. I like the midi "scale" effect that ableton has where you choose the root note and scale then play what...

Re: Tascam portastudio (tape recorder)

Thanks, flashy. Did it have a decent sound? I'm still a bit unsure as to how the tascam will the detect the sound from Ableton. I'm aware i send the audio to my interface, and from there, into the tascam. How will I know which channel it's being assigned to? Is there multiple inputs on the tascam, ...
