Re: Map multiple MIDI controllers to same functions for same Set

Thanks for the quick answer. I have already tried to save a DN-X1700 set, a Xone 4D set, an APC set, and so forth... But my "current" session is not "static" though. I keep adding files, cuts, underlying textures to it... So, when I re-open a previous saved Set, it will not have all of the last mate...

Map multiple MIDI controllers to same functions for same Set

Hi! I Dj around with ONE main Live Set. To avoid flying mixers and heavy equipment around, I often use the gear which i find available on spot. Everytime I change my MIDI controllers though, I have to re-map all the functions from scratch (filters, effects, samples, EQ...) Examples: DN-X1700, Xone 4...

DJ Large Session | Replacing mp3s with cache-decoded wavs

Hi, in my 20 GB project i have 1,000+ files, which generate an additional 30 GB of cache. I want to eliminate the cached-files and consolidate it into a 50 GB all-inclusive wavs-only project. (Of course it is not for the audio quality, just for the easiness of swapping around the project without hav...

Re: Really? APC20 accesses 125 scenes only?

3phase,
that is very interesting...
in fact, i'm experiencing longer and longer loading time (almost 900 songs loaded now...)

i don't understand about loading of smaller sessions. is it possible or are you teasing?
;-)

what do you anyway suggest to do?
thanks much!

Re: Really? APC20 accesses 125 scenes only?

yes oddstep, i understand what you're saying... but down here (virgin islands), we have the most cosmopolitan crowd to please in terms of music preferences... reggae, dancehall, bachata, reggaeton, r&b, hip hop, salsa, merengue, soca, bouyon, zouk, kompa, plus occasionally some soulful house, 70ies ...

Re: Apc40 Live DJ: best external mixer

Hi Piotto! I'd like to know how the X1700 is working out for you in combination with the APC40? I own an APC40 and I'm looking for an external mixer, so I'm having the same issue as you were having :) Hi GL, It took me many hours of browsing around. The final mixers for the Ableton Live + APC40 set...

Re: Apc40 Live DJ: best external mixer

// gabreilsaint maybe i'm too much old school, but i definitely NEED a mixer. i need to cut basses and play w/ eq on multiple channels. no way i could do it only w/ apc40. changing EQ on a fly with apc40 moving from track to track is very frustrating and it's too easy to make mistakes. a mixer is a ...
