Re: Live 8.3 and Automap 4

Hi, This is a slight graphical issue that we have noticed with Live 8.3. You should still be able to use your Novation controller with Live. Please let me know if you experience any problems. Best regards, Alex Lucas // Novation Technical Support http://www.novationmusic.com Okay, thanks. Live does...

Live 8.3 and Automap 4

I can't seem to get Novation automap on on Mac OSX to recognize Live 8.3. The automap "software setup" wizard always says it can't connect to Live. Seems to work with Reason though. Any ideas?

Re: Production Dilemma

The focusrite VRM box is also good for headphones, but you do need *flat and accurate* headphones.

another house track - albleton, tetr4, ultranova

More messing around with the tetr4 and the ultranova. Plenty of drum racks and other nonsense as well.

Enjoy! http://soundcloud.com/joshejosh/shake-until-blurry

Re: Why are my hi-hats coming out as clicks?!?!?!

Wild guess... It might be a midi loop or echo: the hat instrument receives two notes very rapidly.

Re: Random clicks

My computer is only at 10 to 20%, but I have random clicks. It's not all the time, but only at certain times. I'm using Ableton Live, but only 4 tracks (and no effects). Plus, I have a lot of buffer (e.g., 600 or up). Presonus 1818VSL Kontakt 4 MacBook Air 2011 version -- 4gb ram -- i5 processor --...

Re: Best laptop for Ableton Live - on stage performance

Would be nice to hear from you - as some guys did - your succesfull combination of computer + audio interface + midi controllers I've used both pc and Mac with Live. Currently on MBPro. With the PC (Xp, vista, W7) a USB/FireWire audio card is pretty much required. I was never able to get low latenc...

Re: Does it matter if a bunch of grouped tracks go above 0 dB?

Agree w/3dot.

One small addition - Ive noticed that some VSTs act funny when the input is above 0db (according to Live). I usually put a Utility in before the VST if that's the case. Personally I try to keep my levels under 0db, if only to make the metering easier to read.

No. You can't route into the reason inputs like that. Well, at least I havent been able to get that to work.

Re: New track - Live/Reason (and a few other things)

Thanks for listening, and for the comments. I was going for a busy, thick mix. I added a second bass synth, and that had me adding hi pass filters to anything that didn't absolutely need lows and low mids. Had to rebalance everything. The bass line could probably be simplified to make some space as ...

Re: Geez, Ableton 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the look of their job adverts they've adopted the system known as Agile Software development You don't write any code until you first write the "unit test" that will tell you if the code you've written works or not. All the unit test are compiled into a comprehensive automated test suite you n...

New track - Live/Reason (and a few other things)

I had this one sitting around in a folder of unfinished songs for a while. Finally got to finish it this weekend.

http://soundcloud.com/joshejosh/senseless

Not sure what genre it is, kind of old-school-ish.
