Foot Pedal to Sustain Pedal Patch (Free Download)

Hey guys! So, I'm not sure if any of you have had the same problem as me but I've spent the past few months scratching my head as to why it's so difficult to make a foot pedal act as a sustain pedal when plugged into an expression pedal input such as the two on the APC 40. Well, I wrote a real simpl...

Kaoss Pad 3 Controller (Free Download)

Hey guys! I was messing around with using Max For Live to send some CC values to control my Kaoss Pad and I rustled together this quick patch which allows complete functionality of the Kaoss Pad's effect controls. It's great fun to mess with and comes in very handy when syncing Ableton to the Kaoss ...

Automation From Ableton With Slim Phatty?

Hey guys, I'm looking into buying the Moog Slim Phatty for myself but there's something I'm finding myself confused about, and have yet to find an answer online. I was wondering if the synth receives midi CC values such as automation in Ableton. For example, could I draw in an automation curve in Ab...

While writing music in Ableton, I've found one of my main problems to be finding and implementing the appropriate samples. Finding quality samples is one th...

Trouble Importing Instrument Racks

Hey guys, like everyone else Ive been toying around with all of the new features in Ableton Live 9 but I noticed that, although it seems to have imported my library from Live 8, I'm missing any instrument, audio effect, or midi effect racks that I created and saved myself. Has anybody else found the...

Starting With FM Synthesis

I've been realizing some of the capabilities of FM synthesis lately and, while I can manage to understand the concept behind it and how it works, I really feel as though I'm just experimenting randomly and getting lucky with many sounds. I'm looking into learning a thing or two about FM synthesis an...

Hey guys, I've been trying to use Ableton for more hip hop drum samples for beats and whatnot. I've been trying to find some one-hit hip hop samples for this very purpose but I'm having trouble knowing where to look.

How Can I Use a Foot Pedal for Note Hold/Sustain?

I recently started using my sustain pedal with the foot pedal input of my APC 40 rather than the sustain input of my midi keyboard and I was wondering if there's a way to continue using it as a sustain pedal even while it's feeding midi data to Ableton. I can assign the pedal to anything I want in a...
