Re: Why is Ableton Live's transient detection so bad?

THIS! I have always wondered this too... I always just set 1.1.1 manually and then try to warp at the original BPM to save myself the hassle of having to correct the whole way through. But why would Ableton's engine mark the transient correctly and then put 1.1.1 50-200 samples off? Bizarre. Oh grea...

Confused by Live 9's Transport Controls

Curious to hear someone explain the concept behind the design choices made in Ableton's new Transport controls... I'm finding it a touch confusing! There are Session and Arrangement Record buttons, which makes sense given the new "Record Automation to Clip" functionality. But then there is also an "...

14 Bit MIDI Control in Ableton

I have been able to build a device which creates 14 bit numbers from a standard 7 bit "0-127" MIDI control signal. However, I cannot figure out how to map that to an "Absolute 14 Bit" control in Ableton. I am under the impression that in 14 Bit, Ableton is going to be looking for a pair of CC values...

Can anyone confirm this behaviour? Very curious to know if transferring in-progress Project files is going to @!&# up all of my synth patches.

EQ 8 and Phase Issues

I have noticed that in certain cases, EQ 8 introduces delay to the track it is used on. (About .045 ms for me) Specifically I noticed this when HI-Q mode is engaged. You can test this easily by aligning two duplicate tracks, phase inverting one of them with the Utility device, and then inserting a H...

Re: Can Max do anything that Max4live can do?

Hmm... but how would you put max4live before Ableton in the MIDI signal path? When I've created a m4l patch with a simple Notein object, I haven't been able to get the patch to receive signal from my controller without enabling the controller's Track/Remote ins and outs in Ableton's preferences.

Re: Can Max do anything that Max4live can do?

Great, thank you very much guys! I guess my questions actually boiled down to: Can Max talk to live's Object Model? And the answer appears to be no. I have Max4live and the full version of Max 5. I am trying to build a single patch which will allow me to translate the MIDI messages coming from a mid...

Can Max do anything that Max4live can do?

Are there things that Max4live can do which Max cannot do on its own? Specifically regarding accessing API object stuff, making the red box, etc.

Cheers

Re: Different Functions for User Modes in Launchpad?

Any chance of explaining briefly how you are able to read User1/User2 mode's status when the LP is active as a Control Surface? I was definitely not able to read any incoming midi signals with a Max Midi Effect, at least not CC values or note changes. Is there maybe an object in Max that can be used...

Re: Novation Launchpad Script with Stepsequencer and Device Ctrl

WOW. This is a masterful creation. Not only did you retain the functionality of the original script, but you've added just about every damn thing I wished the Launchpad did when I first bought it. The "Precision Editing" mode for parameters is a masterful example of intuitive user interface design. ...

Re: Launchpad remote script ?

Alright, diving into the archives to try to find answers to my questions. I want to find a way to build a m4l device which processes the MIDI coming from the Launchpad only when the Launchpad is set to User 2 mode. This is because I want to retain the "Session Mode" clip launching capabilities. So f...

Different Functions for User Modes in Launchpad?

Is there a way to have different User Modes activate different max4live patches? For example, have User 1 send notes to a drum machine and User 2 act as a step sequencer? Can we do this while still using the rest of Launchpad's native functionality (ie the mixer page and the session clip launching p...

Re: How reliable is the "freeze" function?

I have found that freezing does not significantly reduce the CPU load... only when flattening (ie. writing a track to a piece of fixed audio) does any substantial CPU load reduction occur. Maybe others' experiences vary with this. I usually will save a version of my set (like... ChunkyTune v1_1) bef...

Re: Issues with creating a drum rack with tons of sounds

Bah me too! The copy to siblings feature is GREAT, but we really need a "map sibling parameters to macro x" feature for racks. My suggestion is to try working with Sampler in multisample mode instead of drum racks. This method of working with large amounts of samples is less CPU intensive, because i...
