Re: Autotuner

I hear Antares makes one that's pretty good.

Re: Digiflesh music

Just gave a quick spot-listen to the tracks on your soundcloud, and the thing that completely jumped out at me was how similar all the individual tracks sound. To be brutally honest, I couldn't really tell one from another - it's the same bass over similar drum parts, repeated a few different ways p...

Re: For This Evening's Entertainment: A Demonstration of Sound

I like it a lot, dude. The beginning reminds me of the Myst soundtrack if it had been done a decade later.

The beats are a great complement to the rest of the orchestration.

I like the other tracks you have up, too - you've got a great feel with your tunes. Very original, at least to my ears.

Re: A Song A Week project

Thanks for the feedback. I've recently been wondering how my monitors handle bass (among other things), so it's good to have feedback that it's too much on some of the tracks.

Live not shutting down completely?

So recently (within the past week or so) Live 8.1 has been staying resident in memory even after I close it. I'm running Win7 Home Premium x64. The screen unpaints completely such that there is no visual indicator that Live's still there, but if I open up Task Manager, it's still there, and if I try...

A Song A Week project

Hi all - For the past few months I've been working on an ongoing project to put together a track a week. I put together a tune over the course of the week and upload it Sunday night, in whatever form it's in. All the songs are available on my Soundcloud page here: http://soundcloud.com/oelav/tracks ...

Re: So, how stable is Live 8 running on your intel i7-860?

I've got an i7-860 running Windows 7 64 home premium in my desktop and an i7-720m in my laptop running 64-bit Ultimate. Going on 6months with the desktop and about 2 with the laptop, and Live's stable as ever. Only thing that ends up crashing it is Guitar Rig 4, but I'm pretty sure that's just a plu...

Re: Making beats: Getting started with Ableton + APC40 + LPK25

I don't understand what you mean 'switch it between a MIDI controller and drum machine' - how will you be making beats? If you're going to be using drum racks, there's no reason you can't use the LPK as a MIDI controller to trigger drum samples and use it to play other instruments just by changing t...

Re: Auto launch just recorded clips.

Just to clarify, I'm talking about recording new clips into blank slots, rather than recording into an existing clip.

Something like a "default clip length" setting or some such would be ideal

Re: Auto launch just recorded clips.

In a similar vein, is there a way to set up a slot to be a given length (say 2 bars), so that when I trigger it, it will automatically start looping at the end of the 2 bars? I know it would work with overdub, but if I'm recording audio (i.e. a guitar riff) I want it to cut off at the end of the 2nd...

Re: Best guitar amp for 500?

The Blues Jr is great for cranking up and driving the tubes, but depending on how big the venues you'll be playing are, it might be a little on the quiet side (and granted it'll be going through the PA, but if you like using your amp as a 'monitor', it can easily get lost in the mix.) Fenders can be...

Re: Pretty Lights!(6 albums free-all dope!)

I got into him a couple of months ago, and he totally floored me. I am absolutely captivated by his records - every track is lush without being too busy and it just has so much going for it. So naturally, I was absolutely stoked to see him playing in town. Bought a ticket to the sold out show outsid...

Best time to upgrade?

A buddy of mine's been using the Lite version of Ableton that came with his padKontrol and was looking at upgrading. He asked if now was a good time to upgrade to 8, or if he should wait until 9 is released. I realized I had no idea what to tell him. So would now be a good time for him to upgrade to...

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

I've seen a few videos and screenshots from people using APCs where they have a blue box around their tracks in the Session view rather than a red one.

Is that configurable somehow?
