Re: Advice Wanted: Getting a new laptop

A compromise is to get a 32 gig SD card, a good fast Class 10 one, and run your live set from that (ie, Collect All and Save your project onto it).

Not as quick as an SSD but cheaper and less hassle and still vibration-proof.

Re: The power of sampler

I still get plenty of mileage from getting sound and doing unusual stuff with the warp markers and algorithms. It's a bit hit-and-miss though.

Re: Clipping

Cheers. That's a good point. I've always rendered (to 24bit file) without master effects, then taken that file back in to do my mastering (or rather armaturising) separately. So I assumed master fader position wouldn't matter to much in my case. But maybe that's not the best way to work either. I s...

Re: Clipping

Ok, other than "good practice" and "the way you mix on a hardware desk", is there any real reason not to just the master fader. Well, if you want to put any plug-ins on the master channel, say a limiter, you'll need to put a utility first and drag the level down so the limiter can catch the incomin...

Re: Clipping

Yes, turn down all the channel faders, don't be afraid to go quite a long way down. Also, if you shift-click each channel heading to select them all at once, you can pull down all the faders at once while keeping their relative levels the same . Seriously, leaving plenty of headroom on the master is...

Re: What Drums are you using?

If whatever drums you're using aren't sounding right, limit/compress the shit out of them. You'll probably recognise this sound, once you've done it. Especially if you use some TR-909 samples.

Re: bitwig controller scripting API??

^ Not for controller scripts. There is a built in Python interpreter for those. But AFAIK the Live object model is the same for both It Would be a bit of a bugger if you had to buy MAX just to hook up a controller. Sorry, yeah, I meant *end user* scripting API. Keeping the API a bit hidden allows A...

Re: bitwig controller scripting API??

Forgive me for chiming in, but wouldn't Live's official scripting API be that thing called 'Max for Live'? I gather it's rather well documented and everything.

Re: Mixing properly

you can run all your internal channels in Live hot (in the red) without clipping *AS LONG AS... the Master track (output) is not clipping. Live doesn't clip internally. the red on those track faders is simply letting you know that the signal is above 0 dBs. Again, true. But then you decide to group...

Re: Mixing properly

Now, why Live doesn't set newly added channels to -12 by default, there's a question :roll: No DAW does by default. -12 might be a bit extreme for some users and not enough for others and every project is different. True enough. But remember, a puppy dies every time someone watches a Youtube "tutor...

Re: Mixing properly

"Bastien's halfway rule" 1) Leave the master fader at 0 or just under 2) Set all your channel faders to -12 (roughly half way down, or type it in the square box) 2a) You need to drag the mixer up to full height to see the square box I'm on about. 3) Keep all your device output levels down, so the ti...
