Re: Anyone here use Ableton for Rock/Indie??

I use Live exclusively as my DAW, I record mostly live-instrument based music, guitar, bass, ukulele, vocals. Mostly rock stuff, but electronic music makes its way in often. Different projects call for different instruments and sounds, but Live handles it all equally in my experience.

Re: Replicating this sound....

Operator could handle it. An oscillator set to fast attack and short decay time, maybe a triangle and a sine blend. Then play it with no regard for rhythm.

On the Focusrite scarlett 18i20, 45 samples at 44100 = ~6ms and at 64 it's ~9.5.

Re: power-of-two buffer sizes, is this an improvement?

I'm grateful to have feedback on the topic. I didn't know it was an issue for anyone until I got this new audio interface. The funny thing is that I bought it to replace a PreSonus Firepod that I "felt" had grown in latency. It turns out that the problem was in Ableton Live and not in my hardware. I...

power-of-two buffer sizes, is this an improvement?

I recently posted in the Ableton Answers section and posted a support request to Ableton. In summary, here is my experience: I have a super fast PC with a lot of RAM. I have a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 audio interface. Running a release of Live 9 prior to 9.1 I can run down to 45 samples buffer size ...

Re: Best iPad mic stand mount for singer/guitarist?

Thanks for the reply and the suggestion, and the well wishing. I'll consider the product in your link an option. I really would like to find something that attaches to a boom mike so that I only have one stand. I'm trying to keep setup as simple as possible, as I will be the only guy lugging gear an...

Best iPad mic stand mount for singer/guitarist?

I am putting together a live solo act after years of gigging with a friend as a duo. I've never done a solo show before and I'm preparing my act. I will be looping my guitar through Live to allow for guitar solos and layers. As I'm just starting out, I don't have all songs memorized and also I plan ...

I wrote a rap song about the Next Gen Console Wars

Just a little fun commentary on the current debate between Xbox One and PS4. I figured it was time to blend my love of music with my passion for video games.

Re: Does this kind of processing exist? or possible in Live?

As I read the OP, I thought vocoding was the "best" solution as well. There may be other elements that you could try as well. Even using Kontact and a vocoder to achieve perfectly pitched crumpled goodness.

Re: Named set loads as untitled

Are you saving to your Live 8 Library? I think that's also an issue. Make sure you are saving to a location outside of your previous library.

Re: Named set loads as untitled

Any sets created in Live 8 will open in Live 9, but must be re-saved in Live 9 to be fully compatible. Is this the issue you are having or does it happen even with new sets?

Re: Native instruments new program coming out

Aww, I like NI's website. And I'm looking forward to Battery 4, if this is that, so be it. My last Komplete purchase was v6. I could use some new toys, but I still haven't mastered the old ones. I use Guitar Rig 4 in a live and studio setting and can't see needing more. I don't even know what's impr...
