Re: Who is actually happy with the direction Ableton is going?

I also don't enjoy the way they make hardware integration a commercial product, rather than it being a readily accessible feature. I'm not sure what you mean by this. Are you talking about the fact that Max 4 Live is an extra cost option, or is it something about Push? Can you say more about what y...

Re: Live 9.0.2 has lost my entire library

well turns out there was a word in the browser which prevented ANYTHING from coming up but that particular word/item/ scared the hell outa me. Maybe they should put something like "No search results" in the content pane to remind you why it's empty. Then again, once you've had a moment or two of pa...

Re: Making Ambient Music (tips, methods, workflow, etc)

I love "ambient" music that meets Brian Eno's original definition: "Ambient Music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting." That is, it's something I can put on that sets a mood, but never intrud...

Re: Live 9.0.2 has lost my entire library

OK, so just now I lost my ENTIRE library. The core library, all my presets, the Live 8 user library, everything. I had a moment of panic today when this happened to me with 9.0.2. Then I realized that I had inadvertently typed something into the browser search field. It was one of those cases where...

Re: nubee question about clip launch

Check out the "Clip Launch Quantization" section in the manual (13.3, page 163) and the control bar's global quantization chooser (page 28).

Just open the sidebar in Preview (or whatever PDF viewer you're using.)

Re: Forum login annoyances

I think you were right, beats. After I paid for a legit license to use the forum, it's working better now. (The guy I bought the previous version from swore it wasn't a crack, but you just can't trust eBay sellers anymore.) But seriously, it does seem like something changed in the last few days. My ...

That's really interesting. Thanks for doing the experiment and posting the results.

Re: Live 9 Slice to MIDI???

Slice to MIDI is not showing up in my context menu, and it is greyed out in the 'Create' menu at the top. Anyone else? Am I missing something to enable it? Are you sure it's not already a MIDI clip? Slice to MIDI only works on audio clips. Many of the clips that come with Live (especially drum loop...

Re: Is it just me? (regarding the Live 9 Grand Piano Pack)

Thanks for giving it a listen! Just to be sure, for the C two octaves below middle C -- it's not just an 'overtone' that you have to listen critically to pick out -- it's a glaring and odd sound, right? (at least for the "mellow" piano) Yeah, it's not a subtle thing, it jumps out pretty plain, a to...

Re: Is it just me? (regarding the Live 9 Grand Piano Pack)

FWIW, it's not just you. I hear it, too. Actually, several of the low notes in just about all the Grand Piano sounds have some odd overtones. Some of them are audible in the raw samples, so I have to assume they're characteristic of the particular instrument the samples were recorded from. In other ...

Re: possible to eliminate clicking sound?

Yeah, you want to learn about the "Snap" button and the "Fade" control. The click is caused because the end of the loop section is at a different amplitude than the start of the loop section, so when it jumps from the end back to the start, there's a sudden big jump in the waveform. When the Snap bu...
