Re: Fix the sync issues now !! yes or no ?

maybe you can do another test with the 15 inch as master..this way you know if that can make things better for the 13 inch and if the older mac books have in general the worse performance i am experiancing that's on my to-do list for today ;-) only have access to a mbp-15 and the mb so it'll be a s...

Re: Fix the sync issues now !! yes or no ?

Re: Fix the sync issues now !! yes or no ?

At this point, the signal-to-noise ratio of information about the sync topic is heavily slanted towards noise. Further data has the potential to be useful in solving bugs. Hi Dennis, Thought I would share our experiences and relay some hard numbers about sync performance. We're still in the test ph...

Re: Locking two laptops together via MIDI controller

@nz if you're using mac laptops onstage, you can use core midi to sync laptops via wifi. one laptop contains the master live session while the other is the slave. enable EXT sync (option in live's preferences panel) on the slave. start live set on master and the beat clock on both laptops should be ...

Re: Fix the sync issues now !! yes or no ?

just wanted to add a +1 for improving external sync. i started a support thread regarding the bridge and external sync but haven't heard back from ableton hq: http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=150901 basically when the bridge is enabled, you can't sync live to an external clock source. ap...

Re: how to sync the bridge to an external midi clock source

unfortunately this isn't really an option for our setup. the other collaborators in the group use live and we sync the laptops via wifi. one laptop/player is the bandleader (in this case me) and is responsible for sequence changes while the rest of the players improvise. our collaborator who uses SS...

Re: how to sync the bridge to an external midi clock source

been reading the manual and it doesn't seem like serato can sync to external midi clock - another advantage of traktor i guess ;-) anyway, i'm just hoping for an official word from an ableton or serato rep - no offence @davepermen, appreciate the suggestions! just want to know a little more about th...

Re: how to sync the bridge to an external midi clock source

our goal is twofold: 1. develop new performance techniques with ssl and max for live devices 2. reduce stage hardware and hopefully setup time we understand the intended purpose of the bridge but we're hoping for a few tweaks that will bring even more possibilities in a collaborative performance sit...

Re: how to sync the bridge to an external midi clock source

just to be clear: we don't need SL to sync to live. but we need the live sessions on both laptops to sync together throughout the performance - as you know, 3phase has petitioned extensively about this topic ;-) in our case, my collaborator is mainly scratching & manipulating sounds in SL (not DJing...

how to route serato audio through live audio fx w/ bridge

Hi there,

Is it possible to route audio from Serato decks through Live devices? Perhaps by setting up device chains with dummy clips? Basically we're trying to access Live's audio effects to colour our scratches ;-)

Thanks in advance for any tips or guidance.

Cheers!

how to sync the bridge to an external midi clock source

Greetings, I'm trying to sync two mac laptops for a collaborative performance. I'm using an ad hoc wifi connection and network midi in os x to sync the laptops via midi beat clock. Here's a partial list of the hardware/software in each rig: Laptop 1 (master clock): macbook, os x 10.6.4, ableton live...
