Re: MIDI Arpeggios from external keyboards

It depends on whether the motif can send midi out Consult the motif manual It totally can and it writes MIDI notes in Ableton perfectly. But The MIDI notes just reflect my performance on the Motif rather than what the arpeggio is doing to the notes I play. I'd like to have those arpeggios translate...

MIDI Arpeggios from external keyboards

Is there anyway I can send arpeggio data from my Motif xs7 to Live so it will appear as MIDI notes? I use the Motif to record audio, I use it to trigger my Komplete sounds as MIDI data. However the Yamaha Motif has great, complex arpeggios that I'd like to edit in Live beyond an audio wave or the ac...

Re: New Laptop - Offline Samples in Drum Rack!

Problem is is my external drive back up project for my main stage performance for my band IS the one that's missin...

New Laptop - Offline Samples in Drum Rack!

I got a new Macbook Pro. While recovering my data from my older laptop (in which I did a manual drag and drop back up since I didn't need EVERYTHING from my old system), I noticed that all my Drum Rack audio clips were offline from the Drum Racks. This is weird because those offline Drum Rack audio ...

Cool Vocal Processing and FX in Live and NI

Guys, I own Live and Komplete 7 and am looking to bring in wet vocal FX and processing to fit the production I do, mostly hip hop electronic. I enjoy the distortion based vocal FX used by Beck, Jack White and The Black Keys. Sounds overdriven, filtered/EQed and has some cool unique qualities to it. ...

Re: Sending a Click Track Out for Performances

You can use Scenes to do tempo changes, just right click on them and you'll see the option. In the I/O on the Master, set the CUE out to 3-4, then the metronome will not go through the Master out. Or, use clips as a click and set the output to 3-4. Love the idea of just using another column of clip...

Sending a Click Track Out for Performances

When performing live for stage, we perform with a drummer. I send him a monitoring headphone mix out from the AKAI EIE interface headphone output while using the main outs (outputs 1 & 2 out of 4 total) for the main Front of House mix. My question is how would I send him a click track that would cha...

Re: USB Hub vs. New Interface?

Ahhh found a solution for this post finally. Interface with CUE mix for Ableton (which is awesome) as well as a USB hub!!! Check it out. It's the AKAI EIE interface.

Re: USB Keyboard/Motif XS 7

Awesome, I haven't even really considered flash drive transfer of music files from Motif to laptop. I see how that'd be faster. But when you transfer Motif files from the keyboard to the computer: -What file type will they be? -Can you save Patterns/Songs and the tracks that are contained in them? -...

Re: USB Keyboard/Motif XS 7

I'm sure some of you have Triton or Korg workstations, if not the Motif, and can tell me how you hook your keyboard up so it's not simply a big, overpriced MIDI controller. I'm not believing that all these beefy keyboard workstations can do is just play back soft synths in a DAW.If I'm looking to co...

USB Keyboard/Motif XS 7

I've got a Yamaha Motif XS7. I love it, it's one of the pieces of gear that most defines my sound. Mostly due to its realism and complex arpeggios in instruments such as guitar, basses, keyboards and other organic sounds. Problem is with Live 8, I only connect my Motif via analog inputs to record it...

Re: Live 8 and Komplete 7

Yeah I think you just have to either swap the cells how you want them to appear on your keyboard or find a clever way to remap the whole matrix to fit your MIDI keyboard somehow. Has anybody had any good experience with the Controller Editor? I'm gonna research this a bit more and see how the script...

Re: Live 8 and Komplete 7

Yeah Dark I'm not having those driver problems but I'm on CoreAudio so who knows. I've been scratching the surface on Battery 3, which is something I really want to open up, but I wish it could map the Matrix chromatically as it appears on my laptop screen. Instead, it just throws the kit all over m...

Live 8 and Komplete 7

I just bought Komplete 7 and want to integrate it into my Live 8 workflow. I'd love to get this thread sticky with everyone else's workflow and Native Instruments-->Ableton fun. Let it flow!!! I think I'm liking the Komplete best as VSTs inside Ableton. But Komplete 7 is different than anything I've...
