Re: Easy one button launchpad as stepseq feature.

Re: Where do YOU find new artists and music?

mk2systems.com aka memekast they post free downloadable mixes from all types of good artists, a lot are out of California but are very good. Oh, and festivals... I just heard Freq Nasty at a campout party who tore the forest a new asshole with his bass, so I figured I'd find some of his music... Als...

Re: What Ableton IS KEEPING SECRET about Live's audio engine...

so you like a mixer that by default colors your material? :? just learn to use the tools in Live.. absolutely not... and that's part of the reason I don't use Reason... I like having ultimate control over everything, which is why I use near to none of other people's samples... but it becomes really...

Re: What Ableton IS KEEPING SECRET about Live's audio engine...

I use ABSOLUTELY zero presets (with the exception of an occasional real instrument preset on Kontakt)... I even make my own drum samples with synths and everything... for the most part all my music is 100% my own original sound design... [haven't actually recorded any drum samples in reason since it...

Re: What Ableton IS KEEPING SECRET about Live's audio engine...

when there is nothing wrong with abletons sound "engine" why is it constantly in discussion than? And why have so many people the experiance..or had the experiance..that it sounds better to rewire live than mix internal? The sound engine is crap... nuff said!!! Reason must have some kind of vintage...

Nobody has this issue???? I have a very important audio clip in a song that isn't playing... when I stretch it to full length it plays fine, but when I crop it, it only plays sometimes.... and by sometimes I mean like 1 out of 10 times I play it. Is there anything that might be causing this?? The is...

Random sounds not outputting! hlp plz

I have searched the forum and google for this, but all I find is people having issues of no sound at all, whether it be out of ableton, or a track or a vst... but for me it is single audio clips and midi notes... and more and more I'm getting clicks and milliseconds of audio cutting out, even in the...

Re: drum synth recommendations

Microtonic is cool for LEARNING... but is not as versatile as Reaktor, Absynth, or some of the other synths ppl have mentioned. I use mtonic for a while but got kinda bored of it quick... it can make some decent drum sounds if you don't know how to synthesize them well yourself If you want to learn ...

Re: 15 yrs of dig. audio, pops & crackles still driving me nuts

Glad somebody else has this issue... Ill get a short click in my songs a lot... right in the middle of a sustained bass note... and it just kills the rhythm... sounds like my cd skipped (and it's from Live, not a cd) even the exported file does it... always in the same spot too! Isn't technology bet...

Ill have a sub that will play one or two notes and some of them will be half volume... which I know is not a filt/res problem (as in the filter not matching sub harmonic) because i can sit there with ...

Re: making a synth kick

Yes the pitch envelope is probably your best bet, best way to make a kick in a synth, although there are other ways using layering... you could try a low tom under the kick, might help for a more boomy sound, but make sure if your kick is already a long decay that the freqencies of the tail end of t...

Re: making a synth kick

route one of the envelopes to the pitch of the oscilator (different env. than use on amp) and drag until you've got the right amount of pitch change... a longer decay on the pitch env. will make more of a kick drum your hear in hardcore music where you can actually hear the pitch chance... turning t...
