Re: Interacting with Live's API: M4L vs Control Surface Scripts

There actually is an app for that (easy Python scripting) https://remotify.io/ I've only tried the free version, but it was as easy as can be for a non programmer.

I'd first check out www.nativekontrol.com as Stray's scripts are great if you have a supported controller.

Re: One Drum Rack to Rule them all...

I found the 128 thing to be a real waste of time, due to them taking so much longer to load up.

Re: Live performance and setup

What I typically do: -- layout your song in arrangement -- add automation and some fills (so your soon to be loops are more interesting and you don't have to work as hard live) -- bounce all song elements into 7 distinct audio tracks (kick/snare, perc/cymbal, bass, leads, synths, fx, vocals = 1-7) -...

Re: Michael Gray - The Weekend || How To: Lead Synth?

Analog would be the one to use. It's not a very complex sound so you should be able to get pretty close. To get the pitch wobble: LFO modulating pitch -1 semitone at a rate of 1/8th note. I would also input a very small delay to the LFO's start (not a dub delay but a setting which tells the LFO to s...

Re: looper pedal with ableton link?

That would be an awesome piece of gear. Until then you could just setup a second machine running live, or an instance of Traktor (link supported) and sample in sync that way)

Re: Stories of Crack, Sizzle and Pop

I realize you are all talking Mac here, but perhaps the concepts and tweaks are similar. I had also had inconsistent performance on all of my computers, including crashes out of nowhere (like just hitting play on a clip). I ran the system latency checker that is built into NI's Komplete Audio 6 soft...

Re: Live 9+ crashes - help

I've definitely had my share of crashes since V1.5. I would recommend performing these adjustments: https://support.focusrite.com/hc/en-gb/articles/207355205-Optimising-your-PC-for-Audio-on-Windows-10 I've noticed that my computer's have performed much better after doing those.

Re: CPU recommendation for Massive, Serum, Razor

More cores the better my friend! Live basically assigns each plug you open to a core, so if you can get a four or eight core it will handle more polyphony and plugin instances. That said, if I use track freeze/bounce to audio responsibly I can still get by with a 1st gen i3.

Anyone running Spark 2/SparkLE controller in 9.7?

I was thinking of picking one up, but I don't think Arturia have updated in in years. Is the spark controller/plugin combo working in 9.7?

Re: Creating a multi sampled instrument in Sampler

In short, yes, but it is done in a way that is not familiar to you yet. Open Sampler > click Sample > Observe the window that opens above > drop a sample(s) in the open space that just opened in the left of the window > assign the sample to the desired key via the Key tab by moving the line under th...

Re: Simpler1-shot trigger mode issue??

Just tried on 9.7. Mine worked normally. Trigger played the sample through, gate played the sample only as long as I held a key.

Re: Push 1 and 2, phantom movement of rotary knobs...

This was an encoder issue on my APC40 some time ago. The fix for me was to use a spray fader cleaner called Deoxit F5. I removed the plastic caps (not sure if Push's are removable or not) gave a quick spray at the base of each post, twisted them a few times and let it dry. No ghosting going on two y...
