Re: ableton sound engine and new monolake album

There is no simple yes or no here. We did tests with 80 or more tracks running on different DAWs and they cancel. So, summing is the same. Which is no surprise since it is supposed to be transparent and this is a clear definition. Let's ignore everything below - 150dB in the sum here because I real...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

Add some third part VST's to it, not native ones. Use distortion, chorus, reverb and compression along with EQ. Keep the settings on a paper and do that in both DAW's. Then test if it still sounds the same...by ear. And also export both to do a phase cancellation test to proof if it's identical. a ...

Re: ableton sound engine and new monolake album

I have to come back to this, since I did not notice the very beginning. So, you asked me to be my "friend" on my personal facebook page and then you wrote that thread? Wow!

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

Doing the same thing in logic with the same settings gives a real wow! fx and qualifies as a very valuable feature. Even cheapest processors like an spx 90 give excellent results while using them inserted in ableton live just sounds tired and muffled.. Seems to have samplerate conversion activated ...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

In my experience there does seem to be a bit of a difference between Ableton Live and some other daws in terms of sound, with Live sounding "worse" (for lack of a better term). How or why this seems to be the case isn't something I can really explain or show proof of, but I have noticed it. But I s...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

The only difference between live and logic, as tested by Takerith, was the last 3 bits of a null-test, which is below -126dBFS. This is a little above the -144dB range of 24bit... But what music do you know has 126dB dynamic range? Oops, I think I found a piece... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zr...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

The people that complain about Live's sound quality almost never take a second to specify in their post that they've gone through any effort to make a sincere apples/apples comparison. Or are they referring to the effects & instruments provided in each DAW? It's almost always a general statement th...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

This topic keeps popping up. I wonder can Sandy Vee, or any other person for that matter, tell which DAW was used when the track is finished and released. With his definition of DAW sounds all Katy Perry tracks have been done with Live. can you tell whether a track was produced on a ssl or an amek ...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

Ever turn the SSL master bus compressor on/ off for a client? Watch their faces do this: :D :( :D :( If you're coming from SSL world, Lives mixer is going to seem very 'plain'. Personally, I like that... Live is more 'bare metal'. It takes more time to get a Live mix right because you have to build...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

you all daw sound the same guys here are funny..talking pseudo technical bullshit to assure yourself that one cant hear what many pro sound engineers can hear. A bit useless. And its a rather absurd thing to say that all daws sound the same, seeing that they all DAW´s have improved their sound quali...

Roland Juno 106 and Live

I just got me a juno 106 for christmas and its a really nice machine, just the midi mode 3 where you can record all the parameter settings during a performance is not working. I see the midi led flickering on my interface, so the juno sends something out when i move the faders. But nothing gets reco...

Re: Big Disaster!!

I also lost my library a few weeks ago. Just like that, the folder just got deleted somehow. But at least I've taken the time to set up Time Machine since that, so now my files are a little more safe ;) I think Ableton should look into this. Pretty critical bug imo. But who knows, maybe it's Mac OS...

Re: Ableton has weak output..truth?

I am convinced that ableton does something when doing a master render, no matter what internet forums tell me. but! I got Reaper for 40e or something to do final mix, and now all my problems are gone. if one feels that ableton is lacking something, there are cheap ways to go around it. There is no ...
