Re: Issue - MPC One midi sync out to Live 10, via Scarlett 6i6 2nd gen

Figured it out. Syncing out the One straight to Ableton live 10 isn’t the best way to do it. You need to put the mpc in controller mode and work with the mpc software, which you sync out to Ableton. Was not aware that in this case, mpc one and software do the same exact thing. All explained in noize...

Issue - MPC One midi sync out to Live 10, via Scarlett 6i6 2nd gen

Hi guys, I'm having a small issue and been looking in the forum as well as manuals etc, to no avail. I'm Syncing out my MPC One midi to Live 10 via a Scarlett 6i6 (2nd gen) via midi. I really like that set up, MPC = midi out, which controls Ableton as a sound module it's like a mega-MPC ready for pr...

Re: Ableton playback audio issue MBP 2009

I tried resetting the PRAM, to no avail. I haven't tried the OS update. I did realize that iTunes had the audio enhancer on which didn't do the already mysterious echo-y sound any justice. So i'm back to square one. I guess I'll just leave it like that... Thanks for your help anyway.

Re: Ableton playback audio issue MBP 2009

Hmm actually I just found posts on other forums about people having issues with mav/yosemite os upgrades on MBP 09. They have in common a Ram upgrade. Did you upgrade yours?

Re: Ableton playback audio issue MBP 2009

Thanks for your compliments and feedback about Mavericks working on a 09 mbp :)
I guess I'll just upgrade to Mav. as it's not an Ableton specific issue.
Audio settings in Live are Core Audio indeed.
Cheers!

Ableton playback audio issue MBP 2009

Hi everyone, So I bought this MBP in 2009, Intel Core duo 2, 2.53ghz, 8G ram (added myself) running OSX 10.6 snow leopard (I think). My issue is that when I playback audio through the headphone jack from software like Ableton Live 8, VLC, iTunes etc the sound sounds horrible: over compressed, super ...

Re: pops/clicks where clips meet - Live 8 cross fade problem?

It's most likely a zero crossing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_crossing). I find turning on 'fade edges of clips' or whatever the setting is seems to help quite a bit. Yes yes yes, I found that out this weekend! That's the trick. If you just click on the "FADE" button which you'll find between...

Re: pops/clicks where clips meet - Live 8 cross fade problem?

Hi guys,
Has anyone found any workaround or solution for this issue?
I downloaded Live's latest version 8.2.7 yesterday and I still get these clicks in between clips.
Thanks

MPC1000 as master controls Live 8 as passive sound module.

Re: Looking to improve mpc + ableton combo for live use

Nice stuff! Nice setup too!

It's great, I'm going from gazillion drumracks to 10 tracks. WOOO!
I guess you crop the sample in "sampler" and drag-drop the audio silce in the clip and then assign the clip to a pad, right?

Re: Looking to improve mpc + ableton combo for live use

Damn right! I just changed it again for more flexibility. My main worry was to load a Live set every 2 songs because I would run out of midi canals. However I can assign 1 mpc pad to 1 unwarped/unlooped clip sitting in a track. 1 ableton track = 1 mpc track = 1 canal. Also on the mpc you have 4x16 =...

Re: Looking to improve mpc + ableton combo for live use

Yeah.. it would. I tried with 40 drumracks and it takes around 30 secs for the project to load. The CPU is below 30% at all times which is cool.
I guess my next move will be to get a looper running in between live set loading time.
Or am I doing this wrong?
Suggestions?

Re: Looking to improve mpc + ableton combo for live use

haaa... the instrument rack! I'm going to give this a try. I might have found another way: I see that a track receives midi signal only when it's armed. If I do a "track-arm group" midi implementation on my uc33 buttons for example. A track group would be a bunch of drumracks corresponding to a song...

Looking to improve mpc + ableton combo for live use

Hi everyone, Here's my set-up: My mpc1000 (master) sequences samples ableton's drumracks (slave) created from slice to midi samples. Each drumrack has 1 midi channel = same midi channel in the mpc since it's the master sequencer. I just love the workflow. I would like now to improve it in a live con...
