Re: Recommend audio midi interface for new macbook pro (retina)

Tested briefly. The good news: my PreSonus FireBox seems to be working fine on a MBP Retina, hooked up via an Apple brand FireWire 800-to-Thunderbolt adapter that's plugged into a FireWire 800-to-400 cable. At least, I haven't found a flaw yet (not that I'm a pro tester). Blue light, Mixer app, audi...

Re: Realtime Looping ESSENTIAL CONFIG

Here's the summary: You can set up a MIDI controller to let you move left/right and up/down thru the session view, and you can trigger clips, arm clips, stop clips, even trigger the Undo function. At the time Mobrain taught us about this, we knew of no other way to do those things via MIDI except to...

Re: Recommend audio midi interface for new macbook pro (retina)

I will report my experience here. The adapters won't be here till next week, I think. I'll be sure to test w/o the Firebox's power adapter, and let you know.

Re: Recommend audio midi interface for new macbook pro (retina)

Oh, I could have mentioned that I've already been using the FireBox plugged in to my previous MacBook Pro via an FireWire 400 to 800 adapter cable. No probs, works great.

Re: Recommend audio midi interface for new macbook pro (retina)

That's good news. Thanks! I just ordered a couple. I'm confident that I can use 'em for external FireWire drives I've got. I'm really eager to find out how the Firebox works on it--that'll be a big help if. I use the Firebox's power adapter, so I don't mind if the Thunderbolt+FW cabling fails to pro...

Recommend audio midi interface for new macbook pro (retina)

Can you recommend a good audio midi interface for new macbook pro (retina)? I got one issued to me by my groovy job, and I have to give back the old one. The new one doesn't have FireWire, so I can't use my (very awesome) PreSonus Firebox anymore. The Firebox is perfect for me, except that now I can...

Perfect! Just what I needed to know, saved me some time. I found 'em in Live's browser and dragged 'em to a folder on my Mac.

Thanks!

Re: select "Momentary" or "Toggle" for MIDI Note Mapping

Hard to believe you can't have a midi controller button simply engage an effect as long as it's pressed down & disengage when let go as a part of Live midi mapping. Let's have this please! That's actually what Ableton Live does in response to a button press on my Roland VG-99: it'll engage an effec...

Re: select "Momentary" or "Toggle" for MIDI Note Mapping

+1 :) I want Ableton Live to have this. I've got a MIDI controller assigned to the on/off of an effect on a Live track, but it only works Momentary. I need Toggle. Can't change the controller's output. Ableton Live is software. IMO, the option should be in Ableton Live, in software. Maybe make it so...

Re: Freezing/flattening MIDI clips for juggling beats.

Why not do this with midi? Just create a "Follow Action Template", where each step triggers the next slice and drag it to your library. Now if you slice a loop, just drag the follow action group back in the sliced track. http://www.mediafire.com/?wbvo716h80r4130 Mother, that's frikn awesome. Thanks...

Re: Getting feedback from resonater when turned on - removable?

How about duplicating the track, and deleting one resonator from each... then cross-fade from one to the other when you want to switch? Or switch one track off, the other on, or automate each track's level?

Pitch bend MIDI effect: remaps pitch bend

Idea/Request: A MIDI effect called Pitch Re-Bend *. It's like the Scale plugin, but for pitch bend, and it's simpler to use. It has 2 functions: 1. It overrides incoming pitch bend as if your instruments were all set with a different pitch bend range . If you have an instrument rack with 10 botillio...
