Recording MIDI, sending to multiple channels

Sometimes I encounter this issue- I've got one MIDI track with a VST (Maschine, in this case) that is not record-armed. I load up another track with a synth that I'm playing on the push. As I am playing in my synth track, one sound from Maschine (a drum sample pitched across the keys) is also soundi...

Re: Sitting on the Fence - Push or Maschine

I've got them both, and they are both excellent tools. Things Maschine is awesome at: -Sampling -parameter control of all the NI Komplete products -Working almost entirely mouse free -Can audition sounds for a kit prior to loading them. But Maschine sucks at: - Can't take MIDI in (IE can't tell a dr...

Re: How to make custom categories in Browser's Drum Hits!!

This is an amazing discovery! Thanks, djimbs. There should even be a mirror of the browser activity in L9 on your computer. Obviously! Maschine had that in version 1.0! Like all of you, i'm quite shocked that this wasn't worked out well in advance of release. I remember reading in the "Push: Questio...

Auditioning Sounds from Push - Is it Possible?

After a lovely 24 hours with Push, some of the honeymoon factor is wearing off and I'm getting more familiar with it's limitations. So far, the biggest limitation (of the negative sort, there are plenty of them that work in your favor) is an inability to audition or hotswap from the controller. Afte...

Re: June 25th !!!!!!!

I ordered from Guitar Center, and the rep I spoke with yesterday believed they had just received their shipment. However, I haven't gotten shipment confirmation or anything.

May not be as bad as we are assuming

I want to get my hands on Push as badly as the rest of you, but I'm going to at least wait until the expected 2-4 weeks have passed before I start worrying. For whatever it's worth, I just checked Guitar Center, from whom I pre ordered well before 3/5, and they are expecting a shipment in on Monday ...

Re: Live 9 Skin for Live 8?

I was not expecting such comic joy when I found this thread! Another lover of the new skin here. I can't say why, I just do. Tried the trick of copying the skins from the App Resources/Skins folder of 9b to 8. It works, except there isn't one for the default... Monolake is a much darker theme, simil...

Re: Problem with Chain Selector in Sampler when making 128s

Theo, I just saw your response now. You're absolutely right, a handful of the samples get assigned to a certain key.

Good call. Thanks for the response.

Any idea why this is?

Re: Instant Haus and Maschine

1- Set up Maschine in one channel and load up a kit. Start off with no pattern recorded. 2- Create a new MIDI channel and load Instanthaus. Leave Instantbeat (the drum rack) out of this. Instanthaus has to be on its own MIDI channel, not as a MIDI effect on Maschine. 3- Set up your I/O. Maschine sho...

Re: Push price if I upgrade to Suite 8 now?

I just whipped up a spreadsheet to compare the different options. I factored in the upgrade prices I can see when logged in on Ableton's site, the prices I see when I log out, and the enticement offer to buy Live 8 now and get the free upgrade. Starts to paint a different picture, but still doesn't ...

Problem with Chain Selector in Sampler when making 128s

I've spent a bunch of time putting together some drum racks with a sampler on each pad, each sampler containing 128 different samples. Though tedious, it's been going as I'd hoped until just now. When I got to snares, I select 128 different samples, and there's a range on the chain selector (around ...

Re: Sampler: Ability to use macros/midi mapping for...

Why would there be ANY controls that you can't map to macros?? I just don't understand.

Is there a way around this with MAX?
