Re: Can Livkontrol or TouchAble run without wi-fi network?

These apps needs wi-fi to communicate. Is it possible to use them in places without any wi-fi router? You don't need a router to have a wifi network. If you have a Mac you create a new network in the airport menu and then you connect to this with the IOS unit. I'm sure Windows can create ad-hoc net...

Re: How to sync Ableton samples+fx with real vinyl - need advice

How long have you had the Xone92? Did you read the manual? Are you not aware that it has a MIDI output which can send a clock signal? What good is that clock signal going to do when Ableton Live 9 in practice can't be a sync slave? The only way to sync is to let Ableton be the master to something t...

Re: Rob Papen's SubBoomBass

but the downside of it is, I cannot seem to get enough volume out of it!! i have had this problem since the beginning, it just does not seem to have the output to get it to be loud. Output volume was not my problem as I maximized it and still found the sounds I could build lacking. Did you triy add...

Re: Rob Papen's SubBoomBass

a sine and square wave is the same sine or square wave in any vst and they're the real tools for cutting bass through a mix, Nothing of that makes much sense in this context. The final sound is not basic waves, but is the totality of signal processing and the instruments reactions to being played. ...

Re: Rob Papen's SubBoomBass

I tried the demo but I never felt that I could get enough body and that it didn't sit well in the mix, also with sidechaining (letting the kick trough, which allowed me to raise the bass a bit) and using Glue compression. On their own the basses sounded good, but not in the mix. With other synths I ...

Re: newb DJ needs help/ideas

You create smooth passages from one song to another by, taking the phrasing from the track sections being played into account as much as key, beat mixing these in such a way that you "present" the new track on top of the playing track by fade in, in a musical fashion (phrasing), and then fading out ...

Re: Live 9 external MIDI sync is broken & terribly unstable

. Once Live 9 is "slaved" to ANY external MIDI "master" clock, either it be another instance of Ableton running on another computer or drum machine/sequencer/etc - The "slave" instance of Ableton will crash either immediately or within minutes. https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=192957 L...

Anyone have verified this particular trio: Lion, Ableton Live 8 and the Echo Indigo? The Ableton Live 8.3.3 demo seems rock solid so far. I'm very impressed with Live so plan to get it and this card.
