Re: Manual; Select chapters available as individual PDF files!

I think Ableton allows for users to get the manual printed and bound at a print house. It's not terribly expensive.

Ask Ableton for a link.

Re: FS: PLUGIN SALE 2018

Melda runs a 50% end of summer sale until about 5 days from today which means Melda MFreeEffectsBundle is $30 directly at the moment, not $54. Applies for all their plug-ins.

Re: Why music is so bad today? Can't wait to hear the reactions!

Well, it isn't. Much music is great. It's a question of opening one's ears and getting out more. I'm not kidding.

This is heard not seen. If you're not hearing the effect, check what filter you're using and move the cutoff a bit to hear what effect to expect. It should work as you describe.

Re: Advice regarding computer-choice

Hi guys! After trying Ableton out on trial on my old Macbook Pro from 2012 I have decided to buy the full version. Although, my Macbook feels quite worn-out with the fan not working properly etc, so I'm looking for a new computer that will work smoothly together with Ableton. I'm looking for a PC (...

Re: Ableton NOT Rendering Fully

All of my tracks have some reverb or delay at the end, or at least an ambience at the end to make for a smooth ending. However, Ableton just cuts it out and thus the track just ends suddenly. In short, Ableton will not export reverb or delay at the end of a track and just end the track when everyth...

Re: Re-Save All Projects with External Files

Is there a way to quickly apply this to all projects, or, sadly, must I open each project and save them, one by one? You could look into GUI scripting, but the risk is the setup process takes you just as long as opening them all manually, plus something could go wrong. You could alternatively also ...

Unfortunately the test machine had been sold and since I haven't found the time. Most people want real world tests of the hexacore MBPs now.

Did any of you try "Pen Tablet Mode" in preferences to see if that makes any difference?

Re: Drum Rack Chains in Instrument Rack... odd behavior.

I have a couple of Drum Racks as Chains within an Instrument Rack. When I manually select the 2nd chain (and switch the Chain Selector), the Push's Macros update correctly, but not the 4x4 sample pad display. I can trigger the new Drum Rack, but the illuminated pads still match the first Chain. Als...

Re: How to delete automation breakpoints in Live 10?

I opened a support ticket and now "get it." I have to "triple click." I click once on the point in Live 10 — running the current release as demo — and it's gone. I'm not sure how you could end up with what you describe, but I think support will not tell you that one has to triple click. Another way...

What instrument is this? Some kind of volume modulation is likely going on, or that affects levels. Have you investigated the ADSRs and LFOs in this preset?

Re: Manual; Select chapters available as individual PDF files!

MAKE SMALL CHAPTER-BASED PDF REFERENCES AVAILABLE AS INDIVIDUAL PDF's. Am I crazy? Or stupid?
