Re: Getting new desktop computer

Well I've had the AMD 4-core for a few days now and I'm loving it. I'm having no trouble using multiple effects, ReWire, sampling, never a hint of drop-out's or anything. Reason is the only external VST I have right now so I suppose as I add stuff over the months/years it could show its lower-end ug...

Re: Getting new desktop computer

I ended up getting an open-box HP tower with a Quad-core AMD processor for $420. 6 gig ram, Wifi, lots of USB's. So far I haven't made the CPU go past 30 or so in Live :-) Works good so far!

Re: Best keyboard controller? Using Cakewalk A300 right now.

Thanks Mill. I think I'll get an APC40 to start with (eventually). For now I'm just learning how the whole package works. I'm learning pretty quickly :-)

Re: Turn on effect on only in a certain scene

Well I figured out I can modify the envelope for Chance on Beat Repeat to zero on the clip I don't want beat repeat... and back up on the clip I do want it on. I'm guessing that's the best way. Any other tips?

Turn on effect on only in a certain scene

Hey all, Let's say I have a drum beat on the same track in two different scenes. On the second scene, I want beat repeat on, but I DON'T want it on in the first scene. I'm using session view and triggering scenes with the mouse and I don't want to manually turn beat repeat on and off each time I cho...

Re: Drum layering

Well that's much simpler. No pun intended. I had been creating my kits using impulse exclusively after watching some youtube tutorial. I had not tried the drim rack and didn't even think of it to try, which I will now do. Thanks you both. Hey 82DMC12, I think it's very cool you are new as well but ...

Re: Drum layering

I too am pretty new but I know you can add a drum rack and layer multiple samples and blend them in different ways. I think that would be the most efficient way.

Re: Getting new desktop computer

Forgot to say... My Line6 UX1 interface works great with my laptop. I play guitar into Live and I have lag-free recording. Recommended to get a true ASIO card for a desktop?

Quick question about session view problem

Hi everyone, I recorded a few clips into the first scene of my session view. I wanted to share what it sounds like with a friend so I recorded a few bars of it into arrangement view, added a fade-out, then exported it as a wav. Now, when I go to session view and start the scene (so all tracks start)...

Re: Using Live Intro... upgrade to Live 8 or Suite?

Good idea! I downloaded the free trial and got a 30 days license to save my work. I've only been using it for a couple hours and I'm already blown away. I'm finding a lot of cool stuff here... Think I'll have to take the plunge and get Suite :-)

Using Live Intro... upgrade to Live 8 or Suite?

Hey all, I've been using Live Intro for a while. Now that I'm really getting the hang of it and using effects, I'm finding myself constantly hitting the limit of effects (12 I think) you can use with Live Intro. With the sale going on, I'm looking at upgrading to at least Live 8. There is also Live ...

Re: Best keyboard controller? Using Cakewalk A300 right now.

Hi Micky, I've seen the apc and launchpad and it looks great for live performances but not so good for composing. Maybe because I'm used to a keyboard. Perhaps I should consider an APC and a very simple, smaller keyboard controller? I'm still at the learning stage and not ready for performance contr...

Best keyboard controller? Using Cakewalk A300 right now.

Hi everyone, I currently have a Cakewalk A300 controller. It works fine as a keyboard but it doesn't have built-in support from Live. That means I have a hard time getting the knobs and transport stuff to work correctly. Since that doesn't work, I find myself using the mouse, a regular keyboard, and...
