Upgrade to newer plugin - but lose my project settings...

Hi all, I'm sure this is a common issue and I'm hoping there's an equally common easy fix. But when I upgrade to a newer version of a plugin - eg: Guitar Rig 5, and I load an old project, it looks for Guitar Rig 4, can't find it and says VST can't be found. No matter I have a newer version, however,...

Re: NI Maschine as VST inside Ableton won't sync

No FX loaded in Maschine, just loading a kit. No tricky routing to or from Maschine - not even send returns - just Maschine running straight to the Master channel.

I have Guitar Rig running in this project but on a completely separate channel.

NI Maschine as VST inside Ableton won't sync

I've seen this issue posted a couple of times on the NI and Ableton forums but none of the fixes work for me. When I run Maschine inside an existing Abelton project, Maschine runs about 50 ms too fast. The Track Sync function in Ableton makes no change to this, no matter what value I enter. On the N...

Novation Remote SL template for Oberheim Matrix 1000

Hi there, Does anyone have a Novation template for controlling a Matrix 1000? I've read some posts on the Oberheim and Novation user groups on Yahoo but no one has actually posted a working template. I was about to liquidate my Remote SL as I've just acquired a Machine, but when I discovered it can ...

Angled desktop stand for a keyboard - where can I get one?

Hi all, I just purchased a 61 key midi keyboard and I'd like to have it on my desk right behind my computer keyboard. There are plenty of angled computer keyboard stands on the market, like this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Viziflex-Angled-Keyboard-Stand-Improving-Typing-Speed-/400215533327 But I can...

MidiQuest XL won't open in Live 8.3

Hey there - is anyone successfully using MidiQuest10 XL in Live 8.3? MidiQuest runs fine in standalone mode, but the whole reason I got it was to use it as a VST inside Live to send automation parameters to my old analog gear. Everytime I run Live it gives me an error and cannot load the MidiQuest ....

Re: Record automation with Remote SL?

Hi there,

I've done this. Support reply doesn't understand the problem I'm explaining and says recording automation works with or without Automap. Will let you know if they find a fix.

Cheers,

Re: Record automation with Remote SL?

I have / had the same issue. Solution? Turn off Automap!

Question is, why can't I have Automap running when I record automation into Live?

Re: Reverb Theory: How do you set yours up?

The idea is this: let's assume you have multiple tracks going into a bus that consists a long reverb. In case you just place an eq after the reverb on the bus you sure get to eqing the sum, but if you bounce every return bus of each track to an audio file and eq them individually you get to control...

Re: Techniques for placing notes around the stereo mix

Hi Jimmy, Thanks for the suggestion, however it would be easier to simply run 3 or 4 instances of the synth, pan them accordingly and simply delete certain midi notes of the pattern from each instance. This may actually be the correct / normal way to do it, I just wondered if there was a path of les...

Re: Techniques for placing notes around the stereo mix

Hi Golemus,

Yeah I've looked for a function like that in the synth I'm using (Sylenth) and can't see it. There are panning options but it has the same effect as automating an external pan using Ableton.

Re: Reverb Theory: How do you set yours up?

Hi Leifon, Can you please explain the idea of "bouncing" your return tracks. Does this mean that you export the output of the returns to a separate audio file and then apply EQ to that file before reintroducing to the final mix? Why is this superior to simply placing an EQ on the output of the retur...

Techniques for placing notes around the stereo mix

Hi all, I've done quite a bit of searching on this topic and can't find an answer, however I'm looking for some simple techniques for placing individual notes from a synth pattern to different places in the stereo mix. It's an effect I hear used a lot and the workaround I've been using is automating...

Re: Need help syncing TB303 to Ableton Live

Thanks for the advice. Where are the settings for input latency and track delay? Are these in the IO settings menu for the specific track taking the audio input?

Need help syncing TB303 to Ableton Live

Hey there, I've just acquired a TB303 and a Doepfer MSY2 midi to sync converter so I can sync the 303 to my session in Ableton, however I'm getting a severe latency issue with the 303. It's starting late, between 1/2 and 3/4 of a beat late after I hit play in Ableton. Also, the degree of latency see...
