2 Launchpads thread

Searching around I found this old link: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=128773&start=15 but its a while back, just wondering if the options had improved yet?

Is there anything out there for linking two launchpas so you can use them both in user1 or user 2? i.e. a 16 x 8 grid.

Thanks

Re: How long do you take to work on a song?

We started three tracks in 2012...after several major re-writes, we're expecting to finish them second quarter of next year. That's three of us doing 0-40 hours each, every week. Three tracks each in the 10-20 minute mark...so...a long time! We go in and out of phases on working on one to three at a...

Re: Recently encountering glitches and clicks

I'm starting to get a sense that the act of spiking the CPU usage, even if not to 100+, causes some issues like this. I don't know if this will help (or even is true!) but in our most demanding sets sometimes we'll get cracks and clicks, and from monitoring the CPU load it seems to be caused when it...

Re: Good tutorials for Ableton noob

Kinda depends what you want to achieve.... What DAWs have you used previously? What's your music knowledge? What's your programming/computery knowledge...? And...youtube! Pick something, a kick drum? youtube ableton kicks...etc. Ableton is fun, make sure whatever you do ticks that box and you'll do ...

Editing the options.txt PC

I've frequently read on here about making edits to the operation of ableton, but writing in the options.txt. Some of this stuff sounds really useful, but I keep searching for this elusive document and cannot find it. Where does it come from? How do I get there? And, what format do I write things in ...

Re: Drum rack questions = send/returns

If you need two snares each on a different chain in the rack to the same reverb, then you need sends inside the rack. This will send some signal to the group out and some to the reverb though, but you want 100% wet. Two ways - either have different reverbs, and if you need to change its settings wit...

Great DJ, INCREDIBLE drummer....I admit, I come from a pretty metal background so this kinda IDM tech-metal crossover gets me so excited.

Re: What's your next music gear purchase?

My Launchpad's USB socket is faulty...(I bought it when they were first released so I'm not too surprised the amount I've carried it about) So a replacement. Not sure what yet, either another launchpad, or I'm toying with the whole push thing but money vs what do they actually add? velocity sensitiv...

Re: Link Jam

I was talking about Link today...can you tell me more? For many years my band tried and failed to sync. Occasionally we'd have temporamentally good results, but nothing we could go on stage with. Until, I fixed it all by buying an amazing computer that could just run all our stuff at once. Of course...

Re: Clip stop quantisation

Follow actions are in the launch section of the clip, below it's quantization and stuff.

You have options like 'play next', 'play others' etc and can set the number of beats and bars and the chance against another action.

Re: Mixer/Tempo control from Laptop/computer keyboard

You can already set keys to do a lot of things (click the key tab next to MIDI top right). Wouldn't be holding down v for volume and up and down to adjust like you describe, but to honest for a lot of that you'd need both hands anyway which isn't too useful. Set your numpad though, 1-2 is volume, 4-...

Follow actions?
Tell it to play the next clip (the silent one) after the beats?

MIDI input signals. How do you change velocity?

So I'm building a sequencer in live (not max) using the samson conspiracy, and launchpad, but first track is in 5/4 so conspiracy works for that. One problem keeps getting to me and I'm after advice, if anyone has it. The samson sends a velocity sensitive 'on' signal, that turns effects on, but the ...

Re: Hide your laptop on stage tips? No screen performance tips?

You should just confuse matters. Get a bunch of fake stunt laptops. Shoplift the ones on display at Ikea. Pull them out on stage and throw them on the floor and at the audience. Grind on them and squirt lighter fluid on them, hendrix style. Make fiery sexual love to them while screaming "what the f...
