Re: Why program change is so damn difficult in Live...?

Yes I did post in KVR. No answer yet.

So you think this might be a bug in the Mac version? Anybody else use Pizmidi with Live on a Mac?

Re: Why program change is so damn difficult in Live...?

Shadx312, or anybody who uses PizMIDI: Can you tell me why ,when I try to use Midiconverter3 (and some other from the Pizmidi set), Live automatically changes the MIDI track to an audio track, rendering the plugin useless. What's the workaround?

Thanks,

Steve

Need help, PizMIDI forces Live MIDI track to audio

This is weird. I'm trying to use the PizMIDI converter device to change CC# to Channelpressure (aftertouch). I made a separate MIDI track to take input from my controller (Quneo) and send it to the MIDI track that holds my instrument (Diva). As soon as I popped the midiConverter3 into the track, the...

Re: Ableton and sending MIDI to trigger QUNEO LED's...

I've figured out how to make Live control the LEDs without MFL, which I don't have. Just as Peeddrroo said, use a combination of scale and pitch controls. Plus I add in velocity to control the brightness. I use the racks too. It takes a little work, but is all possible because LEDs light up with spe...

Re: Most elegant way to simulate Kaoss Quad--effect in series?

I've been experimenting with ways to do this Kaoss Quad simulation using racks of chains and chains of racks. I put my effects into a single chain and ganged the control of parameters to one set of macro controls at the head of the chain, which I then map to x/y controllers (on the iPad). I can togg...

Re: Instrument Rack - Send & Return Workarounds?

Little blue headphones did the trick! It works!

What does "listen" mean, exactly? What just happened?

Re: Instrument Rack - Send & Return Workarounds?

A little help, please. I discovered this thread and this sidechain listen trick--never knew I could do that! I tried setting it up, and can't get it to work. What am I doing wrong? I'm only interested in using this to route clean signals to other effects, not to modify the signal. I have a compresso...

Re: Most elegant way to simulate Kaoss Quad--effect in series?

Yur2,

Some good ideas in that video, thanks. Gives me some ideas for ways I can map the controllers.

But doesn't answer my original question. I don't have Max 4 Live. What is that Mapulator thing? Is that only M4L, or is it a plugin?

How to simulate Kaoss Quad--effect in series?

Hello, I'm trying to simulate my Kaoss Quad in Live. The Quad is not the same as the Kaoss Pad, though it has exactly the same form factor. It has four groups of effects in series that can be turned on or off with the punch of a button, and then altered with the x-y touch pad. For example, I can tur...

Re: McMillen QuNeo looks to be everything I want in a controller

QuNeo Firmware Updated New firmware update just released. Public Beta v1.2. Haven't loaded it up yet, but I'm hoping this fixes some of the problems. Long list of feature upgrades. Some are reporting problems getting it to work, but others are posting tips for avoiding those problems. See here: http...

Re: McMillen QuNeo looks to be everything I want in a controller

I'm just digging in to the QuNeo, learning how to set it up with Ableton, hitting some frustrations. But one thing I found that helps is the forum on the Keith McMillen site--the support forum for QuNeo. The support staff show up every now and then to say things like "oh, we took out that feature bu...

Re: Novation SL Remote, Template Frustration

Yur2, thanks for the suggestions. I'm not using Automap at all. I do have Remote selected, for in and out, in the preferences. I discovered that the Ableton template uses channel 16. Otherwise looks like normal CC controls. Anybody know if channel 16 commands some special function in Live? NEW EXPER...

Novation SL Remote, Template Frustration

I posted a few days ago about my frustration with Automap. Helpful posters persuaded me to abandon Automap and just work with basic templates on my Novation Zero SL MkII. I'm trying to customize my Zero to control Ableton. Original thread: https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=187775 Now, st...

Re: Automap and Novation Zero Mk II--want to love it, now I hate

Good information, Timbeaux. Thanks. So is it possible to tell Automap to not interfere with pure Ableton controls (tracks, drum racks, sends, etc.) but when invoked only give me access to plugins? I use Alchemy, Diva, Zebra, and Uhbik (U-he effects). That would be sweet! Would that be an edit of an ...
