Re: Macbook Keyboard sometimes Dead in Ableton with El Capitan

Are you using the builtin keyboard on the MacBook, or an external (bluetooth or USB) keyboard?

I sometimes have problems using an external bluetooth keyboard on my late-2013 MBP if I also have WiFi turned on, but it's not specific to Ableton.

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Why is improving Push and its integration into Live such a priority? Because Live was never envisioned as a normal DAW, even from the beginning. The earliest versions said "Live Sequencing Instrument " on the box. But people see track lanes and faders and automation and assume it's supposed to be w...

Re: Ableton as slave on midi clock tempo sync issue

Can you use Ableton as the master and the PSR as the slave? Do you have something else that could work as the master clock to drive both Ableton and the PSR set as slaves (or external clock)? There are dedicated MIDI clock devices (e.g. the E-RM MIDIclock), or any reasonably capable drum machine wou...

Re: Hardware hack - USB powered push from multiple USB ports

No. All the USB ports on one computer are ultimately powered by one 5 volt power supply. You would need independent, isolated power supplies for each port to do what you're suggesting.

Re: Point me in the right direction please?

Hard to say what the problem might be. First thing I would do is check to see if your audio interface is supported under OS X 10.11 or if new drivers are available for it. Did this problem show up immediately after upgrading the OS? IIRC, the El Cap upgrade continues to make changes and "optimize" t...

Re: Finding lost ableton 9 session

If you saw the name, would you recognize it? If so, you could search your hard drive for all .als files and see if any of them trigger your memory. If you remember approximately when you recorded the session, you could look at the .als file creation and/or modification dates to narrow it down. -- Mo...

Re: Issues recording syntheziser via external sound card

I'm not familiar with either the Kaoscillator or the Komplete Audio 6, but from the pictures, it looks like you're running the line out from the Kaoscillator (an analog output) to the SPDIF input on the Audio 6 (a digital input). That won't work. You should be running the Kaoscillator output to eith...

Re: typing values manually in AL(or how to set 2ms in delay u.)

The answer's in the subject line of your post: just select the field and type the value you want and hit return. Does that not work for you?

The Velocity MIDI effect can randomize velocity for all notes on a track.

Re: audio output issue, please help

Are you plugging your devices into a USB hub or directly into the USB ports on your Mac? If you're using a hub, it could be that the hub has failed. Try plugging your interface into a port on your Mac instead of going through the hub.

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

basically the amount of pressure applied should map to the same velocity if your finger is already resting on the pad, compared to if you strike the pad from a distance. Maybe, maybe not. It depends on exactly how they're doing that mapping. A moving finger striking a pad has kinetic energy and ine...

Re: Push 2 can't make Red LEDS or Screen? Anyone else?

But when coloring a track red, Push 2 can't make the screen or pads look red; they just look Orange. Yeah, I speculate that Push doesn't show pure red because Live uses that color to indicate the active pads when recording. I guess they figure it could get confusing during recording. Unfortunately ...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

What contradicts file paths being the issue in Guillermo's case, is the fact that these did work up until the update. Indeed. In fact, according to his statements, they continued to work even after the update . It was only later after having some problems with Push2 that he noticed they were missin...
