Re: Best Controller?

Launchpad is awesome as a clip launcher. In terms of using it to mix though, it's quite challenging. Clips are on one preset, volume controls on another, and stop/start/solo on another. So it's almost next to impossible to map efficiently to play live since your always switching between pages. This ...

Re: Best Controller?

Completely depends on what your after... I'm currently using a Launchpad + SL25mkii + UC-33e. Your never going to find a single controller that does everything exactly the way you want it. Even with the equipment I have now, I still feel a bit limited at times and your mappings need to be spot on. A...

Re: Anyway to disable the "blue hand" (auto-assign )?

^^^ I still want to be able to use the controllers though. I just want them to be used excursively by midi assignments I've mapped, not have live auto-assign controls to my controllers just because a rack is "selected". I found a quick workaround in the meantime, just grab a blank effect rack and ri...

Anyway to disable the "blue hand" (auto-assign )?

Random question.... I'm in the process of remapping my controllers (launchpad, slmkii, uc-33e) for playing live, and I'm getting quite frustrated with the auto-assigning of controls to whichever rack is active at the time. I usually love this feature when I'm producing, its really convenient. But fo...

I'm really liking the logic behind this right now, access to multiple "volume" faders that can be mapped, could be exactly what I'm after :D

Re: Question regarding sends......

^^^^ Thanks for the heads up again. I see what your saying, tons of ways to go about things, but each has it's own pros and cons. If I was just using say 2 channels of clips/tracks I'd have things figured out reasonably quickly I think. It's the 4/5/6/ track mappings/programmings that are throwing m...

Re: Question regarding sends......

okay little follow up here..... Everything's working as it should...yay! Now I have a follow up question regarding mapping. It seems so make sense to me that the send dry/wet should in this case also be mapped to the clip volume slider. So that with the send is set to pre, as I increase the dry/wet,...

Question regarding sends......

Hey guys... This probably seems really elementary and I feel like a bit of a knob for asking :? , but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer anywhere.... My question concerns using sends for effects. I have a bunch of tracks/clips in 4 audio/midi channels. I then have 3 different sends. Her...

Help! Arrangement View Question......clips dissapeared?

Hey Guys, Looking for a little help if possible. I'm semi-new to using ableton and have been really loving the program and have been learning quite a bit since becoming hooked. However, I've run into a bit of a snag. I did a search but couldn't find any answers, so hopefully one of you more seasoned...
