Re: Questions about Live Pack downloads/Session Drums.

In principle, I would NOT recommend duplicating the whole library. As UKRuss has already said, as soon as you start changing the library (e.g., add/change/delete a preset, etc.), the two libraries easily become out-of-sync. I would definitely voting for having one and only one library. What you can ...

Re: [Piano roll] Possible to change the order of the MIDI notes?

Thanks for your idea! I will try combining several tracks, each containing one drum rack, with the Superior Drummer VST plugin. Regards, Martin

[Piano roll] Possible to change the order of the MIDI notes?

I would like to re-arrange the order in which the notes are shown in the piano roll. So, instead of C1, C#1, D1, D#1, E1, and so on, I prefer (for example) E1, C1, D1, D#1, C#1. Why the heck do you want this?, I hear you shouting. Because I use Superior Drummer 2.0 which has a lot of drums with seve...

Re: Session Drums and Firewire Drives Workaround

You can't mix up libraries unless you use some tricks using links. Links are the trick that Sampler uses to avoid moving Garage Band / ESX samples to the Library. It could be possible to apply this behavior to SD as well. Actually, "Use links!" is what I wanted to say all the time I was reading thi...

Re: Installing Live Packs

File Menu - Install Live Packs. Point it towards where the Live Pack is. This is one way, but then you have to install each of the ten packs one by one. If you just drag all the ten alp files from you file browser onto Ableton Live's window, all ten packs will be installed in one action. Is there a...

Re: ezdrummer being controlled with an electronic drum kit

Hi! Not so long ago I tried to explain in another forum post how you can manage exactly what you described. The key point is that you don't have to touch the VST (in your case: ezdrummer). Instead you can use a MIDI rack filled with scale devices to accomplish the mapping between your drum kit and t...

Re: Native instrument Kontakt 3 with ableton - NOOB PLS Help

To get it working properly, you have to make sure that two things have been done, assuming that you are on Windows: During the install of Kontakt 3, you have to select the option to install the VST plugin as well. You have to select a folder to which the VST has to be installed. Normally, it will be...

Re: Translating E-Drum to vsti drums through Live's Scale device

Hi! I neither have Live8 (only Live7) nor AddictiveDrums, but I can tell you one way of how it could work for you: What you need is a "MIDI Effect Rack", equipped with chains and one "Pitch" MIDI effect for each of the chains. Have a look at the following image - it should give you a first idea of h...

Re: export of mp3

That may add as much as $40 to the price of Ableton because they have to pay the creator of the codec for each copy of Live sold. I still think it should be at least an optional plugin. The Abletons could maybe integrate the free LAME encoder which comes with the LGPL. I am not a legal specialist, ...

Re: adding more file browser folders??

I agree that more than only 3 folder shortcuts on the left side would be more than just luxury. I help myself by using the "favorites". I have one browser shortcut for the Live library, one browser for my samples&loops location, and the third one I use for the project I am currently working on. I ha...

Re: Confused about upgrade pricing

Sorry if I'm being mental, or if this has been asked before. I have Live 7. I would like Live 8 and essential instruments collection. If I download the upgrade, and then buy EIC seperately, the total cost is 248 europounds. If I buy Live 8 upgrade + EIC combined, the advertised cost is 278 europoun...
