Re: Devices: Upgrading from Intro to Live 8

Try drum racks instead of Impulse? I never really use Impulse so I'm not sure of its ins and outs, but I was under the impression you could just drag and drop individual samples to each of the pads in the device, and there you have it. Try drum racks to do what you're doing - those I know for a fact...

Can't you drag and drop into Impulse?

Assigning MIDI for stopping clip recording?

Is there any way to have a single command (ideally triggered by a MIDI footswitch through my APC40) that serves as a general 'stop recording and start looping the clip' when I'm recording into a clip space? So, say I have a track that I'm playing a guitar part on. I start the recording via one of th...

Re: recording problem

Maybe I'm confused, but how does an interview have BPM?

One thing you might do is split up the clip into 2 clips, and leaving the interview clip unwarped

Re: creative techno guitar efx chain

Just as an example, check out Jon Gutwillig's guitar tone with The Disco Biscuits. Very electronic sound, but his guitar never sounds out of place with it even in the midst of serious 4-on-the-floor trance jams. A lot of it is how you play though, too - I've gotten nice sounds that work well in an e...

Re: USB audio interfaces that work with Windows 7

I'm using the Cakewalk/Roland UA-25EX. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/UA25EX 24bit/96khz (although only half-duplex for 96), 2 inputs with great preamps, solid Win7 drivers (both 32 and 64bit), MIDI I/O, SPDIF I/O, okay onboard compressor, phantom powered, bus-powered with very nice latency ...

Re: Looper problems/ still cant seem to get it right

Are you trying to use the big button or the 4 smaller buttons?

I have 4 buttons on my LPD8 mapped to the play/record/stop/clear buttons, and it works just fine for me.

Re: Guitar only comes through LEFT channel

1/2 means (usually) left/right, so if you have 2 channels going into your interface (say, left = guitar and right = mic), each of those will be one channel of the stereo input. You could convert the track to mono, which would put it through both speakers. Anyone know if you can use Utility or some s...

Re: creative techno guitar efx chain

Also, not quite what you're looking for, but if you have a guitar sporting humbuckers, it's a lot easier to avoid that jangle. Single coils, esp. Strats in my experience, are hard to disguise in an electronicky mix. You also might just try a lot of compression and high-gain distortion, to get a pure...

Try the pitch bend envelope?
