Complex mode now uses Elastique Pro Was that in reference to my point about mixdowns? I'm very glad to see Elastique Pro, but I have some reservations about whether that negates the need for an offline algorithm. Presumably a clip would have to be using Complex as its Warp mode to be exported using...

New warping... :D

But waiting to see how good it really is before getting too excited (better transient detection, please...)

No sign of a pro-quality algorithm for mixdown though... :?

Yeah, my first thought was "WOW!"

Now I'm thinking "only 5 scenes?", "where are the scene and track scroll wheels?", "where are the freely assignable buttons?"

Maybe it will be fantastic. Or maybe I need to start saving up for the APC-64. :wink:

Only a lack of features that interest me.

And probably not even that, as I'm still on 6 and even Live 7 has got a couple of things I could use...

I do not know what the atmosphere is like for a Pakistani Muslim in the west at the moment and i do not know how welcoming society will be to me. Well, speaking as a Londoner, I'd say that most people in London couldn't care less where you're from or what religion you are. And most of us realise th...

Why would you drop a warped file from the arrangement back in to the file browser? Doesn't clicking save in the clip view do what you want? Or have I misunderstood?

I can't remember if I've actually tried it. But I seem to rememeber that so-called USB to parallel adapters typically give you "USB printing support" rather than a true parallel port. So I'm gonna say "probably not".

Hi,

I've been working with some other guys in London on launching a "controllerism" night. We've lost a bit of momentum lately, for various reasons, but plan to pick it up again next year. Maybe we can combine our efforts, or just support each other's nights...

I have one. But it's now in a box! That shouldn't be taken as an indictment: I just wanted a more portable setup. It's a lot of kit in one box - sound card, digital effects, analogue mixer, control surface, MIDI interface, mic pre-amps... not to mention the half-decent VSTs that come with it. It's a...

I'd like to. But I can't until it has a decent timestretching algorithm for exports. The real time algorithms just don't cut it for a final mix down.
