Re: All this about sound quality

^ he said it was in the manual. do you want it on the splash screen or taking up the info panel? how often do you change sample rates? and why? as levimoniz said: I dont want but I have to. Sample packs are sold in near every sort of quality. You have to take what you get. I got projects bounced in...

Re: All this about sound quality

my assumption is based on the SRC in live. the SRC is nor linear in phase. so I assume that the summing engine is based on nearly the same way of calculation. now I would like to have a look into the source code (or gettin' a official statement from a ableton DSPmen), but I could imagine that the DS...

Re: All this about sound quality

My final assumtion why live is often beaten by other DAW guys is, that lives impulse-response is not linar in phase. I hope that this will be done in Live 9 and everyone can sleep better at night. But in the moment I do not get any disadvantages from it. So I'm very excited if and what they change...

Re: All this about sound quality

Because I am on a phone I'll quote the net to expand on your point *1981: AES adopts 48kHz as professional digital audio sampling rate standard. 48kHz was proposed by Alastair Heaslett of Ampex. Heaslett's rationale was based on the following considerations: 1) Data "block" (integral samples) bound...

Re: All this about sound quality

@MPGK That's about 5 Megabyte per second in uncompressed stereo PCM... and, needless to say, rendering to 24-bit only makes sense if you're actually working in 24-bit. In the near future diskspace won't be an issue. And yes, it makes a difference when you want to convert a *.wav to any other (compr...

Re: All this about sound quality

24/48 is not recommended in my eyes. The change to 24/88 is much more reliable. A *.wav is a big step in the music portal industry at all. But I think that the material itself should be quality. so the main information is even cought at 320 cbr *.mp3. So just bouce 32bit/44kHz in live and render wit...

Re: What makes EQ plugins better than lives EQ8?

The Live internal reverb is not bad- it brings very good results, especially for a live situation. And you can set the quality! You have to know how to tweak it correctly. I would consider to take 3rd party plug-ins (conv ones or algos) only for mixing or freezed (and fiexed) audio to save CPU power...

Sounds very similar to Izotope Ozone 4 tape saturation.
and please don't forget the hi-res mode :P

Re: Think Ableton is really going bankrupt and out of biz?

No, I don't think they are. But what they could do, in my honest opinion, is to answer the users' curious questions a bit. IMO, the 64-bit update is among the most desired ones, seeing how the computers are getting more and more powerful all the time. An application should "get on with the times", ...

Re: Mastering & Live Performance

Hi, as a live act I know that only 20% of the clubs have sound guys- from this 10% with professional experience. in my experience the best to keep sound clean should be following chain on the master: utility (for volume control) --> EQ 8 in high qual mode for hard and small banded cutting/ (no boost...
