Re: Future NI TRAKTOR going the live way

They require user to do pad combination to abandon mouse click for simple task while composing. That's just not true, because... well, because you can still use the mouse. Have I misintepreted what you said? we no longer have to see boring pseudo DJ but genuine 'DJ' who are capable of mixing in rea...

Re: DJ Sound quality: Vinyl vs CD vs Live Clips

I think you should forget about what your friends say and just get on with it. For a start, if you have keylock off, your kicks should become no more or less muddy when you pitch a sound, regardless of its source. You can't timestretch a vinyl record without digitising the audio, so the point is moo...

You don't like people having an opinion on music? That's pretty fascist.

Yup. Or there are places like sonic academy that do Ableton beginner's courses. But you can navigate to them in the browser, audition them and drag 'em in.

Re: Tech house remix of a trance record

If you've got the trance audio stems, you could try chopping the synth leads or incidental synths, and playing them back staccato style with a short decay ADSR. Wack a bit of delay on there and ping pong these snippets around the mix just enough that people are thinking 'I'm sure that's the hook fro...

Re: Why do people hate Dubstep?

Call me a hipster if you will but like every bandwagon, as soon as everyone jumps on it, the wheels come off. Dubstep's the latest victim. There's some screechy, wobbly execrable dross being pumped out by all and sundry at the moment. Luckily, if there's one certainty about popular music it's that i...

Re: Do I really need ableton for my launchpad?

Why can't things just be easy in this world. There are many things that aren't easy in this world, but setting up a launchpad in Ableton (on a mac) shouldn't be one of them. You haven't been specific with what you have and haven't done so I suggest reinstalling everything, making sure you're instal...

Re: Do I really need ableton for my launchpad?

Without software (like Ableton), your launchpad is just a piece of plastic with some flashy lights. It won't work for the same reason that plugging a computer keyboard directly into a printer won't allow you to type up documents. AFAIK, the launchpad isn't even class-compliant (it requires software ...

Re: Massive anxiety attacks on starting to use Ableton, help!

2 tips from a book I'm reading:

1) it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become expert in something
2) successful people statistically have more failures than unsuccessful people simply by virtue of 'daring to fail'

...so just get involved and start making those mistakes!

Re: Exporting Audio over 2047MB

They probably didn't really see a 2-4GB file size limitation as a problem back in 1991.
