Re: Trackfader just drops to -66

if you hold down SHIFT when you start a new set you get a truly blank default set. you can use the Live browser to bring material from an old set to a new one. disconnect all your external hardware, something could be going out, tickle a controller then gets sent back in. there are millions of stupi...

Re: how do i move

it's dead simple with the browser, just navigate to the project, copy/paste or drag n drop just like any OS's browser.

Re: LIVE 9 : PDC IMPROVED OR NOT ?

something else is going on there. what you wrote doesn't add up. the actual number crunching is your computer, sound cards just do payback.

you should also read in this thread what the actual issue is here. somewhere petite wrote a write up.

Re: Using a older MIDI keyboard or buying a newer MIDI keyboard?

it has nothing to do with plug-ins. dragonbreath isn't making any sense on that one.

options-preferences-midi

set remote and track accordingly. open the help box in the lower right of Live's GUI and hover the mouse over those options to learn what they do.

Re: Ableton as a Guitar Effects Unit - suggestions?

IMO the FCB is a tank piece of shit. it's weird to program, heavy and clunky. I have one and never liked it. the SoftStep looks to be loads better and from what I can tell it killed the FCB. I went through computer sims and the Line 6 Pod, then I went back to a real amp and love it. when I want to p...

Re: i want to know if its worth it?

So then why cant i produce progressive with ableton sooner or later you'll go down the same path most of us did years ago. you'll realize that it's because you suck. this will drive you to either quit, amass a stack of gear that you'll couch your ego on or you'll log out and go practice. fake it un...

learn the gear you have.

humans are the only animal capable of developing the urge to want to own things we don't actually need. more gear won't make you better, only practice will.

Re: Right choice using Ableton Live ?

there's nothing unusual with what you want to do, try the demos and see what you like. these guys don't know you or how you like to work. seeing as how you play guitar and have simulated instruments you don't need more with Suite. we can talk ourselves into wanting all kinds of stuff, you could buy ...
