Re: Ableton Guitarists

I'm on a crossroad of where I want my guitar to go. Anyone please chime in and hopefully help me on one way. There is a Third Way: virtual guitar I use the VG-99; it's awesome. Or you can pick up an old VG8, and if you're patient and love figuring out how to program effects and synths, you can dial...

Re: Ableton Guitarists

2. The function of Space Bar (play/pause) is not available for an off/on MIDI footswitch. (You have to kluge a typists footswitch, but you have to take at the pause while the software waits to see if there is a second keypress (e.g., Pok) I think I've got good news for you: it is possible to use MI...

Re: Ableton Guitarists

.... send your dry signal to the sidechain input of the AutoFilter. So while you're feeding it a really harsh and compressed sound to filter, the actual movement of the filter will respond to even the smallest details in your playing. Very hard to achieve with a keyboard and I've been playing for o...

Re: Ableton Guitarists

For me Ableton Live delivers as a guitarist. However, lately I was bouncing back and forth about getting a VG99 or not... VG99 seems so a good way but means I will lose the ability to change sounds later in the process because today all FX are applied in Live. What do you think? I use a VG-99, love...

Re: L7 "The preset cannot be loaded. It's probably broken."

I freakin' love the Ableton Live forum. I just had this same problem, searched for that phrase, found this thread, realized what my solution was, and minutes later everything was working fine again. I use a lot of forums, and this is my favorite. (In my case, the prob was only that I still have an e...

USB bus-powered. Bummer. No good for my needs, but thanks. Looks cool. Whatever I use must be independent of a computer, and able to control MIDI gear via a MIDI cable.

Wow, is there a way to turn the Ipad into a MIDI controller (or the iPod touch)?

Re: Any new controllers that could replace a Trigger Finger?

Thanks for the idea, but the nanoPad won't work for me because it needs USB to send MIDI (and to get its own power). I really wanted those nanoPads, to stick onto my guitars, till I realized they need USB power *and* they only send MIDI down the USB cable. Bummer. I liked the one with the little joy...

Re: Any new controllers that could replace a Trigger Finger?

Thanks for the recommendations. Also, extra thanks to yur2die4 for bringing up the lack of pressure-sensitivity on the padKontrol. That'll be good for folks who read this thread in the future. Glad you mentioned it because I didn't notice that. The manual says the padKontrol sends Aftertouch, so I a...

Re: Any new controllers that could replace a Trigger Finger?

Hey, that PadKontrol's got possibilities! A reviewer at a store said it could run off a 9v ac adapter, so... that could do the trick. So you like it better than the Trigger Finger? Good to know. Thanks! edit to add: OMG it's got an x-y pad I can assign to pitch bend and/or MIDI continuous controller...

Any new controllers that could replace a Trigger Finger?

Any other new controllers that could replace a Trigger Finger? The Korg nanos looked awesome to me at first, but they need to be plugged into USB. That won't work for me. I need one I can power free-standing, no computer needed. Preferably as programmable as the TF. I could program a pad on that to ...

Does Live respond to "set pitch bend range" MIDI messages?

Does Live respond to "set pitch bend range" MIDI messages? I play guitar synths sometimes, and, sometimes, it'd help if I could call up a sound with a different pitch bend range, and have it match the guitar synth. The guitar synth can send a message that says, "hey, synthesizer, change your pitch b...

Re: Copy and paste warp markers in live 8?

I've got a different situation, but the same wish (to paste warp markers from one clip onto another). I played a guitar riff, then spent a while moving warp markers around. But I recorded the riff in stereo (2 diff output sounds, one on each channel). I only warped the Left clip before I realized I ...
