Re: Modules failing to load during Live 8 launch

A little grave digging here, but I just had a similar problem with some free VSTs and fixed it by copying the actual DLL into my Ableton VST directory instead of just a link to the DLL in my VST installation folder. Had the issue with these plugins... RING-O ring modulator PlatinumEars.com IQ4gui dy...

Re: Keith McMillen SoftStep with Win7 x64 / Ableton ??

not sure about Live 64-bit, but i use Win 7 64-bit with latest stable Live release and SoftStep. works just fine. you will likely want to run SoftStep in "Standalone" mode instead of "Hosted". The Hosted mode runs SoftStep editor software in the background which eats up a lot of RAM and requires the...

Re: Ableton with electronic drum kit

For some reason i never tried edrums with drum racks. Actually i should check it out. from all i can see there is no way to midi map directly to a pad in drumrack...someone would have to verify that you can set up hits in clips and map to those, group and record audio off that group, that works pre...

Re: Focurite Scarlett 2i2 issue- help?!

Messed w latency n buffer settings, no change... Turned wifi off and I think that did it... Need more time to mess around but I think that was the culprit... Thx abl peeps! Definitely worth checking DPC latency with wifi on and off to see if something shows up, just as an extra confirmatory measure...

Re: Sequencing rather than recording live

Where are the clips in session view?.. I can see the instruments but not the clips man, i'm about ready for bed and missed this question earlier. sounds like you need to work through some tutorials to get the fundamental ableton live session/arrangement view concepts under control. if you have sequ...

Re: Sequencing rather than recording live

search for tutorials and/or read up on the following topics that should be very helpful... clip launch quantization clip launch legato mode clip follow actions also, if you're not jamming live there's definitely nothing wrong with dragging and dropping clips from session into arrange view to sequenc...

Re: Can you write MIDI clips for simultaneous instrument?

I just loaded them into a rack and it looks pretty great.. Only problem is I remembered that I use them in different octaves! Obviously the sub runs an octave lower, even though they're playing identical patterns on the same keys.. Any way around that..?! Pitch MIDI Effect at the head of each chain...

Re: Focurite Scarlett 2i2 issue- help?!

Same sound? I've never had it cut out completely.... yeah, i had that crackling sound. i didn't do much troubleshooting other than trying it on both my notebook and desktop. it worked much better on my desktop computer, but i really only wanted to use it with the notebook computer. sorry i couldn't...

Re: Focurite Scarlett 2i2 issue- help?!

similar issue for me when i tried the 18i6. it was really bad on my notebook computer and just sort of bad on the desktop. the 18i6 would just totally cut out after a few minutes on the notebook computer. the only thing i could think of was poor drivers. i had used a guitar rig mobile i/o playing li...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 - your experiences?

i tried 18i6 for a few days but there was some driver incompatibility with my notebook. My EMu 1212m beats any budget USB or FW interface on the desktop, so the Focusrite went back for a Behringer ADA8000 ADAT expansion on the desktop rig. if low latency will be a high priority i think the focusrite...

Re: Audio Technica AT 2020 anyone?

I like the AKG Perception 220 better. Forget what the difference in price is, but I think the AKG is only a bit more and its high end is much smoother to my ears. Much better on cymbals especially, but also generally better acoustic guitar. Both nice budget mics though. I own both.

Re: Polyphonic shell for monophonic instruments?

would you be able to extend the decay with a reverb instead of with the synth and get the sound you want? not the solution you're looking for exactly, but it might get the job done.

Re: 44.1kHz vs. 88.2kHz

Just FYI, I started looking at the SR of EIC2 and Session Drums instruments last night. Looks like most of the EIC2 stuff is recorded at 48 kHz and Session Drums are at 96 kHz. On a related note, Sampler displays the SR of each sample in the Live status bar. I couldn't figure out how to see the SR i...
