Re: Group Buy: Aether Reverb

Re: The GUI. I really like the "Berlin Small" skin. What exactly did others not like about the GUI.
In any case, I think this thing sounds fantastic.

Re: Whats your favourite Midi-Controller for Ableton Live ?

E-MU XL-7 and Korg PadKontrol. It's an excellent combo. XL-7 was no longer being used as a sound source/sequencer but it makes for a brilliant controller. By default, I have it controlling volume, pan, 3 sends, compressor, 4 band EQ, Filter and distortion on each of 16 channels; transport/solo/mute/...

Re: Who uses sends and how? When will Ableton improve them?

This is the phase cancellation trick I mentioned earlier in this thread.
It doesn't work well with virtual instruments (at least not on my MBPro).

Re: Who uses sends and how? When will Ableton improve them?

The pre/post solution is not ideal. Say for instance in a live situation you want to send tracks 2, 5 and 7 to a return track with a filter on it and not hear the dry signal. You have to set the sends to pre, raise the send levels for each track and lower the volume level for each track to zero. To...

Re: do you feel guilty using loops you didnt make?

A while back I was watching TV and this Honda commercial came on. The music that was playing was just a little bit too familiar. I dug through a few of my tracks and found one with the same loop. Then I went digging around the web looking to find out who made the Honda song. I came across some kids...

Re: Announcing Mod271!

I've been developing Windows Mobile apps for several years and my advice is stay the hell away. It's a horrendous mess, especially when you consider the diverse range of hardware you will be expected to support. On my desk as I type I have at least a dozen MS mobile devices laying around and there ...

Live 8 recording VSTi to audio track issues

I posted this in the General forum: NI Massive and Pro5, both VSTi and AU on MBPro OSX 10.5 (latest versions ... haven't tried other NI instruments yet). When I resample on a seperate audio track, the audio level is very quiet and recording is off by about 1 measure. Tried with other instruments inc...

Re: Plugins that don't work so well in 8...

Just to confirm ... I don't have any problems running the plugins (NI instruments) under normal circumstances on my MBPro 2.3GHz (4GB) OSX 10.5.6. The problems only arise when I resample (bounce) to another audio track. I would appreciate if anyone can confirm this. Just create a simple midi pattern...

Re: Battery 3 - what´s up?

Just saw the promo. What exactly is Battery gonna give me that drum racks don't. Just curious. Is it worth it just for the samples?
