Re: Microtonic, V-drums and Live

I have posted a small tutorial quite a while ago. Please check this forum post: http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=122640 , third entry. There I explain using the combination of one MIDI Effects Rack combined with Pitch Effects for each of the drum notes you want to map. IMHO this is easie...

Re: Only 7 bit ASCII supported in file names?

I just checked this on Windows7 64bit with Ableton Live 8.1.4. I have taken an existing wav file, renamed it to äää.wav, and dragged it on an audio track in the arrangement view. No problems on my side - the file is shown as äää.wav in arrangement view and also in the clip view at the bottom of the ...

Re: [Chilled] Free Album - Silent Earth of Stone and Iron

Hello! I have just listened to your music (at work, shame on me ;-). Nice work! My personal favorite is number 4 - Ascension: Diabolical. Thank you for providing this for free. Greetings from Germany. Martin

Re: Ableton live lessons in Berlin

Wow, I'd wish to have some active Ableton users here (south of Germany) since I am also pretty new to Ableton. Well, this means that I'll have to figure out everything by myself... which is not really bad! Hi, I live in Nürnberg (which is also somehow in the south of Germany) - is this close to whe...

Re: MIDI Clip Editor...Change Notes to Drum Names...Drum Rack?

The solution I know is using a "MIDI Effect Rack" instead of a "Drum Rack". I have already described this in another post in this forum: http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=122640, third post. In fact, I also describe there how to remap the incoming MIDI notes, but as a side result you have...

Re: Some MIDI Effects Racks for Superior Drummer 2.0

Hello! In addition to the MIDI effect racks for the Avatar library, I have just created the same style of MIDI effect racks for the Metal Foundry library.

Download these effect racks here.

Take care, have fun! Martin

Re: Slow livepack install on Windows 7, Ableton 8.0.5

I have the same problem, running 8.1.1 on Win7 64bit with Intel quad core Q6600 and 4 GB RAM. It seems that accessing the files in the library is something like a bottle neck. It does not matter if virus protection is on or off. I also tried the WinXP compatibility mode. Installing any Live pack is ...

Re: Convert WAV to 320 MP3

If you are not afraid of using a command line tool, then I can just recommend LAME. Google for "lame mp3 encoder" and you will find the home page.

If you use lame.exe with a "for" statement, then you can - for example - convert all .wav files in a given folder into mp3 files and so on.

HTH, Martin

Re: Some MIDI Effects Racks for Superior Drummer 2.0

Some of those drum maps look like someone had a drunken camel spit on a keyboard and put each piece wherever it landed :) This is a very funny way to describe exactly what I think about these mappings. :-) I wish Ableton had an easier way to rearrange the notes in fold mode; i know the feature has ...

Re: How do users make Battery 3 less cumbersome in Live?

The main problem I'm having is that when you view a clip, in the piano roll view, rather than displaying the names of the drums samples, they're named after their notes (whereas in Live's native Drum Machine, they're named after whatever sample is in that cell). Is there any way to change this? Yes...

Re: Some MIDI Effects Racks for Superior Drummer 2.0

very cool. I think I might make something similar for iMap. I don't have superior drummer, I have some oceanway kits, but the same concepts would apply to both. Ah, didn't know about I-MAP. I have just checked its website - looks like that I am not the only one being slightly irritated about the ch...

Some MIDI Effects Racks for Superior Drummer 2.0

Hello! Beware, this is possibly going to become a rather lengthy post ;-) But if you are a user of Ableton Live 8 and Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 this might be interesting for you. I am in principle a happy user of both Ableton Live 8 and Superior Drummer 2.0. Nice tools, nice sounds, nice everyt...

Re: Half the peeps I know with Live have cracked versions

My argumentation against cracked software goes like this: If a given functionality would only be available in some hardware, I would just have the two options of either buying the hardware or not using the functionality. I would not consider stealing this hardware from someone. I have extended this ...
