Re: Default Gain Staging of Clips

I'm always importing a clip and then subtracting 12db of gain before I even start to do anything else. Why eat up so much headroom at the input by default... I just don't get it?!?! Watch your a$$, you're a dying species. Look around any audio forum. They're being swamped by questions á la, "Why is...

Re: add an effect only at the end of a loop

a) 19. Automation and Editing Envelopes and/or b) 20. Clip Envelopes Use a) (in arrangement view) when you want your effect to work on the very end of the all repitions of a looped clip, use b) when you want it on, say, every last bar of a four bar clip. If your echo sits in a return track automate ...

He is using the keyboard on his laptop.
Per his original request, yes, but then there's "MIDI messages", "keyboard", and "MIDI interface" in the alternative scenario.

Re: I'm new to abelton.... help, somebody, anybody?!?

I plug my keyboard into the Midi interface and set to channel 1. What's your keyboard? Does it have sliders or knobs that send MIDI CC messages? THAT might be a 'MIDI for dummies' solution. You MIDI assign one of those to a track activator, the example I tried reads like this in the MIDI assignment...

Re: I'm new to abelton.... help, somebody, anybody?!?

hi! I'm new as well but I think what you're looking for is (and I can't believe nobody has replied for that) is to click on the yellow number of each track. I think they will then go red, off!

Re: Pitch Bend Range?

I wasn't aware that Intro provides presets with the non-Intro instruments. All of Live basic core instruments and effects are installed with Intro, and on the License/Maintainance preferences tab you can (or at least could when I used it) unlock a demo mode where you can access them all, but not sa...

Re: Pitch Bend Range?

Which instrument are you using? I've removed all of the factory presets from Ableton, so I'm not sure which one is in the Instrument Rack preset you've chosen. If you're using Intro with no add-ons, it's either Simpler or Impulse. I looked it up, it's Operator. If I'm not using simpler, is there ju...

That sample is completely decayed after about 1.5 s.

In order to introduce any sustain you'd need to loop a part of it and embrace the artifacts of that.

Re: What's an .adg file?

all I see in the device rack is a box with some basic adjustments (e.g. Filter Cutoff, Filter Reso, Distort, Volume, etc). So you seem to be looking at the macros right now, about expanding the chain list, device view and editing see 18. Instrument, Drum and Effect Racks in the manual. But, given y...
