Re: Tr 707

I really like my 707. Or did. I still layer the kick over a 808 for a little punch. The hats are really chunky and come in handy. Overall the thing cuts through a mix pretty well. But do you need one? I really doubt it. See, the 707 doesn't do anything. It plays back samples and it has a sequencer. ...

Re: Changing Patches Live - The Solution

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to say that it helped me REALLY clean up my set and streamline my way of playing. Being able to use the macro knobs to control my different synths (like normally) and just using my launch pad to change the racks that contain them is crazy smart. I love...

Re: Random unmapping APC20

Thanks to Rabalder for a little help. http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=177295 I dont remember which channels the APC operates with, but if you set all the knobs on your BCR to channel 9 or 10 or 11 or 12 or 13 or 14 or 15 or 16 it shouldnt be a problem. Every time I upped the channel on ...

Re: Random unmapping APC20

ARGH... So, I think I know what is going on, but I don't know how to fix it. I can replicate it though. On my BCR2000, one of my knobs is on channel 2, CC#7 (CH2CC7). It controls a delay or something. Since I could not get my apc20's line fader 2 to automap, I needed to link it via midimap. This cau...

Random unmapping APC20

Earlier my track 1 fader became unmapped. I have been messing about with another midi controller doing some mappings so I figured it was that, but when I looked through the mappings, nothing was there. The little triangular fader level marker was turned black, but no mapping. I ended up just mapping...

Re: What plugin did funkagenda use for man with the red face?

Philippe Nadaud, the saxophonist, I believe he used both a real saw and a midi sax for the original track by Laurent Garnier. Mark Night didnt use any of the original samples (or at least did not get any from Laurent). My guess is that he had someone come in and replay the parts. You can tell that t...

Turn her in. Your future and financial health are tied into this. This will affect the ability to get jobs, cost you untold amounts of money (even if you never paid it back, consider the 10s of thousands lost to %points.

Or the killamix. Nice and small, just use the banks. http://www.audiomidi.com/Killamix-Mini-P9019.aspx [/quote $439.00 for 8 knobs? YIKES. You can buy several 16 knob controllers for that price. 144 endless encoders and 144 buttons. The size of a snickers bar. I know what I'd want to travel with. d...

Well, thats why they call it a "first release" What he is/isn't doing might not be anything wrong, it depends on what your contract states. Was there a release date agreement? Is there an out if it doesn't get released. Did he pay you an advance? I always make sure that I can opt out if it isn't rel...
