Live 9 midi mod wheel problem

Hi Ableton fam, I'm using an e-mu xboard 25 to control Live 9. Weirdly, it defaults to using the mod wheel to control the Master Volume fader. Even if I Midi Map a new controller, either within Ableton or on a VST, the mod wheel stays as a Master Volume controller *big sad face* I loaded up Live 8 a...

Re: Chord Progressions

the external instrument isn't needed anyway. i know the thing works with a midi rack chain selector but it's so fiddly.

Is one global instrument per instance of drum rack possible?

This has been asked about by a couple of us (I'm one) but in a thread is called 'chord progressions' which is not an accurate description of the technical conundrum at hand. I have made a drum rack with a Chord Midi Effect dropped onto each cell along with an instrument. (In this case Electric.) Thi...

Re: Chord Progressions

you can use a clip as a chord container put each chord you want inside their own clip change the global quantize to none and voila Thank you. But as for the original point, any way to get one instance of an instrument across multiple cells in a Drum Rack to preserve CPU and make it easy to audition...

@buleriachk

This might not be a bad compromise?:

Yes, a chord rack would seem an obvious thing. But EDM, on the whole, is harmonically conservative (note I said 'on the whole.'), jazz or classical samples excepted.

Re: Chord Progressions

I never get these kind of things.. the bother you have to go through to make it even sound halfway natural. You might as well just put some time into learning some chords and play them in yourself (always sounds better and is faster in the end; it just costs youi a little time to learn) This is a m...

Re: Chord Progressions

Allow me to resurrect this thread. I've been trying to find a workaround for the exact same thing as the OP. I dragged a midi chord effect onto a drum rack cell and dialled in a custom voicing. Repeat x 4 or however many chords you need. Of course, now I can put a Rhodes or whatever on each cell. Bu...

Re: Track soloing using Arrangement Record

Thank you Tagor. I had thought of some of these but was wondering what the quickest way is in Arrange view. Does inverted solo exist?

Re: Track soloing using Arrangement Record

While this topic is fresh, I have a related query. In arrange view, I want to have just 1 bar in one of the tracks soloed ie everything else is silenced apart from this one bar. I know I can manually draw in the envelopes on all the other tracks but is there a simpler way I'm not aware of? Thank you...

External Audio Effect vs Pod XT

Could anyone help me out here? Using just my laptop and a Pod XT with a single USB connection, is there any way I can use the External Audio Effect instrument to have audio from the computer going through the effects in my Pod and then back again into my laptop?

Thanks!

the bottom line here is: it ain't the 1960s!!! line 6 all the way dude. i've used my podxt for countless gigs and recordings and it sounds awesome every time. a vintage guitar and amp and even a great engineer won't disguise a mediocre guitarist with a lacklustre style. if you're so purist, why even...
