Re: Ableton 9 Manual's Section on Push

At least I know I'm not the only one. I saw the videos on line and received an email saying to grab the manual to get more in depth about PUSH. I was super-hyped when I thought I was downloading a 611 page manual for PUSH. =] Someone stands to make a small fortune by creating a user-friendly manual ...

Can you MIDI map the start and end points in Sampler?

Finally have some free time to dig into PUSH, sliced an audio file and am trying to figure out a way tweak the start and end points using PUSH.

Is there a way to natively do it within Ableton? Is there a MAX4Live instrument that allows it?

Re: Custom Drum Racks

They talk about it specifically in this portion of the video (PUSH Event in NYC) http://youtu.be/ELXV4q6rfyI?t=1h2m23s Maybe that will help explain what we should expect to see? .adg / .wav etc... I did a drag/drop of a "claps" folder to the path User Library / Samples / Claps Not sure if this is th...

Re: Custom Drum Racks

Someone asked somewhere if you can load your own samples in the Drum Rack from PUSH. Yes. I have saved an empty Drum Rack preset to my User Library for this purpose (because you cannot load an empty Drum Rack as an instrument into a newly created PUSH MIDI track [for some reason?]) So, instead you ...

Re: Push - Sample Recording/Chopping workflow needed.

Further advanced sample editing would be ideal if we could somehow move the start/end markers in the sample window. I'm wondering if you are wanting to accomplish the same thing that I can't seem to figure out. I want to slice a sample across 16+ pads and be able to turn the knobs on PUSH to adjust...

Re: What if you could do music for the next 24 months full time

Two years of bills paid? Only working on music? I'd be in fucking heaven. Probably spend the Winter/Spring months of the year working in my little studio, writing music or working on production. Play little shows here and there with my band, DJing, or playing live. Practice with my band 3x a week. ...

My bad, yeah, how do we move it to the lounge? I definitely like reading everyone's input, but also want to be considerate and have it in the right forum.

Oh I remember reading about that (mostly the controversy it caused within the industry). I don't know if he'd have the money to hire the studio musicians, etc I will definitely direct him there.

Re: What if you could do music for the next 24 months full time

If income is the main objective, I would dump the VSTis, spend that money at Beatport, practice pressing play and sell my soul to any devil that would buy it. :roll: Income in the sense of making a living, not like a pop star, but 50-100k annually. Would you mind elaborating on the Beatport comment?

What if you could do music for the next 24 months full time

I had an interesting conversation with a guy asking about music composition, seems everyone I meet is a "beat maker" or "electronic music producer". I asked what he would do if he had the ability to seriously pursue it... If you had 24 months of bills paid and your basic EDM studio (Laptop, Ableton,...

Re: seems like not a lot of movie composer

Live is what I use to score feature films (see signature if interested) the trailer and films are all done in Live. A colleague uses Logic and DP, we both have to do the same TimeSignature changes to tweak frame timings, etc. Live gets a bad rap for being a fun loop tool. Everyone is shocked when th...

Re: NI Komplete 9 - Worth Upgrading from Komplete 7?

I am going to wait as well. I have K8 crossgrade with Maschine. I agree with the others saying, K7 or below is a good upgrade.

Re: Maschine as VST in Ableton Live (full, useful tutorial)

Nevermind, I figured it out... If anyone ever struggles with this in the future: Use the "Configure" function on the Maschine VST box in Ableton and configure the Maschine Macro knobs. Now the knobs are linked to the Macro knobs and you can assign macros in Maschine to whatever you like. Thanks for...

Re: Maschine as VST in Ableton Live (full, useful tutorial)

I've been working with Ableton live using Maschine as a plugin (can't understand why anyone wouldn't). Does anyone know if it's possible to expand the Maschine screen in Ableton when being used as a VST plugin? I swear the 1050x660 window just isn't enough real estate. Still searching for this, but...

Re: Audio Interface Motu or Focusrite

I have the MOTU Ultralite Mk2 and think it's great!
Only issue is apparently a common one... LCD goes dim?

I know the other brands are very popular as well. I'd buy from a place that has a great return policy.
