Using a Live synth in Logic

I'm sure there's a simple solution to this, but I'm not having any luck figuring this one out. When I perform live, I use Live. However, in the studio, I'm using Logic. I'm now recording and have put off recording these few songs where the softsynths are not standalone VSTs, they are Live synths. I ...

"Dummy" midi track for scene launch

I'm sure this will be a simple "duh!" moment, hoping someone can tell me what I'm missing. I've got a dummy midi clip that triggers the next scene for me. The reason I can't use clip follow instead is because I've got specific bpms and time signatures on the scenes. So I've set up the dummy midi cli...

Re: Sustain pedal held note issue on arrange mixdown

So, I looked up the definition of AIFF and apparently it has the ability to store midi data as well. I had no idea. So somewhere in the export of the AIFF it's storing some erroneous information about the release of these notes. I'll export as wav instead and it should be fixed.

Re: Sustain pedal held note issue on arrange mixdown

Actually, I just discovered this is really iTunes hacking it up when it converts from aif to mp3 and when i listen back in quicktime. How is that even possible? AIF doesn't store midi data??

Sustain pedal held note issue on arrange mixdown

I have a clip that I used a little bit of sustain pedal in when I created it, and when I export my arrange view as an aif, this particular clip holds the sustain through the whole thing. No other clip has this issue, and it doesn't happen in live view or when i'm listening back to arrange view, only...

Song with two time signatures

Hi have a song I'm working on and the verse is in 5/4, the chorus is in 4/4. I don't suppose there is a way to switch the time signature halfway through somehow easily and quickly?

Re: Using Two Midi Controllers

If you can, change the midi channel to be sure they're not using the same channel and might have possible conflicts. unless you want that. for example, i have three controllers that all have a way to send the same midi note on the same channel - it's the record button.

Re: anyone using ableton as a live on stage mic mixer?

I'm doing it somewhat as my duo partner is also using Live as a mixer for her set up and sending her tracks to me via optical adat out, so we've got 16 tracks running - 8 from my set up and 8 from her.

we're both using motu 828s.

Yeah, someone else told me they had that problem with their novation as well and once they did an OS upgrade it resolved itself. Unfortunately my OS upgrade had no effect...

Can you assign two midi controls to the same function?

I have a midi foot pedal that I want to use to control some things, but this particular foot controller only sends CC messages, not midi note numbers. Fine, except my main controller only sends midi note numbers on some functions and not CC messages. So for some functions, like track activate, i wan...

Re: Is anyone using a Novation synth as an external module?

At first I thought it was my Motu 828, as the person with the nova also was using an 828, but I switched it out to a midi uno I have when I travel, and the exact same issue happened.

It's possible this isn't just novation, but I've never had a hanging note issue with my korg ms2000br.

Is anyone using a Novation synth as an external module?

Trying to track down an issue I'm having with my A Station. Noticed someone else had a similar issue with a Novation Nova. Has anyone been able to successfully use a Novation synth as an external midi module? In other words, you've tracked some midi date, and send the midi data to the Novation synth...
