Re: EQ Eight Upgrade! with analyzer

Yeah, I agree wholeheartedly that a spectrum analyser in the EQ would be great.

I am absolutely loving the idea of sidechaining the spectrum analyser from other channels though.

That would be a tool truly worthy of Ableton Live's workflow.

Create new MIDI clips

Since I first owned Live all those years ago, I've always had a niggle - creating new, empty MIDI clips of a particular length. What would make sense in my head would be to select an area and consolidate, instantly creating a new MIDI clip of the length I desire, ready for me to insert notes. What h...

Re: Repitch sound degradation??

I got exactly this on a few tracks. Funnily enough I was also making a D&B mix. I just used the complex algorithm for the problematic tracks. Seemed to sort it out. I assumed the problem was the fact that D&B relies heavily on enormous bass and lots of distortion. Together I can see these factors ca...

Re: Low resolution automation quantizing

OK, I've been given a fix by Ableton support - it's a text file called 'options.txt' containing only the following: -_ThinningAggressiveness=0 It needs to be put in the preferences folder. Support say: "You can open the folder like this: In the help menu, choose "get support". In help view, click th...

Re: Low resolution automation quantizing

There does seem to be a lot of tequila around doesn't there? In all seriousness, I'm losing all the subtlety of my automations. I can see Ableton drawing in all the lovely automation data as I twist the knobs and record, it just strips it out when I stop recording. It's really frustrating. :( Why wo...

Re: How do I make this sound?

Find some e-keys and electric organ samples online. Rhodes, Wurlitzer and the like. You'll be able to find free ones all over, or house sample CDs (or liquid D&B CDs) are good for them. Put a sample into Simpler and play with the amp evelope until you get a short sound - short attack, short decay, n...

Re: Low resolution automation quantizing

I've just got this problem on a plug-in.

There doesn't seem to be a setting which relates to it. Any ideas?

Re: Got a minute to test a possible new timing problem?

Found out something else. If you zoom into the beginning of the loop section, the recorded audio looks in time on the first pass. If you zoom into the second beat (or anywhere later on in the loop) the first pass of recorded audio looks out of time. It's like the record speed isn't the same as the p...

Re: Got a minute to test a possible new timing problem?

OK, it's definitely two problems. The great news is that the large delay is fixed using your tip. Nice one, thanks! :) Seems that, at least, was just an amplified version of the same issue. The bad news is that I'm still getting a delay (only a few samples by the looks of it), along with a slow cree...

Re: Got a minute to test a possible new timing problem?

Well the thing about that issue is that although it seems to be 'caused' by having Audio From set to Ext In on the monitoring track, it only actually shows up if you have a plugin in the send. So definitely try setting your Audio From to None I would say. You don't need to turn off delay compensati...

Re: How Fast of a CPU do I Really Need

It doesn't. Quick look on the Dell site (search for P4 3GHz) showed up a dual core processor.

That should be fine. :)

Re: Got a minute to test a possible new timing problem?

Very interesting, thanks for digging them up. That problem definitely sounds like it relates to the second problem in my post. The first problem is a little more severe though - each VST plug-in adds about a quarter of a beat of delay. This goes beyond phasing. The third problem - the cumulative eff...

Re: How Fast of a CPU do I Really Need

Core 2 duo is a good start. I broke through into wonderland when I got a quad core. Since then the only things that have held me back are the hard drive speed and the sound card latency/drop-outs. (My Edirol external UA25 seems really bad for this on Live 8, but firing up my old VSL2020 seems to hav...
