Re: novation sl rotatory question.

if you're new to the novation with automap:

do a video search in google for "remote SL automap" there's a series of tutorials novation put up on youtube that show you pretty much everything about how to set up things.

Re: NI plugins complain "installation folder is not writable"

Hmmm... No, had UAC turned on. Turned that off. Now it doesn't complain that the the install directory is unwritable... but when I drag an NI instrument into my session, it makes me se demo mode... I guess I'll try reinstalling them too. The goal in the reinstall of NI software is what? TO get the V...

Re: NI plugins complain "installation folder is not writable"

Trying to figure out what is doing what, I created a folder on my root called "test" and when Live 8 / NI plugin complained about installation folder not being writable, select a different folder, I selected my test folder. It has the following: A directory called "default" in which is a file named ...

Re: NI plugins complain "installation folder is not writable"

Vista 32... Live 7 was installed and working successfully. Did the upgrade download. Upgraded. Ran 8. Asked me if I wanted to use the old library, said yes... took like 20 minutes converting all the instruments from the suite from 1.x to 8.x I noticed 7 was still installed. Ran the uninstaller. Ran ...

Re: NI plugins complain "installation folder is not writable"

When I go ahead and pick some other location when it prompts me (like my desktop) the NI plugin tells me I haven't activated it...

That doesn't make me the slightest bit nervous...

ReMote SL switches to template 40 automatically (not wanted)

Occasionally it seems that the ReMote SL switches from template 38 (automap) to template 40 (Ableton Live) "on its own" from time to time. It does it on start up of Ableton Live... also possibly while midi mapping in Ableton, and other random times I'm not expecting. Anyone know how to get it to sto...

ReMote SL Automap 3 - how to program XY pad (for FM8)

Wondering how to get the XY pad to control things? I've been playing around with Automap 3, the free version. I wanted to buy the Pro version but their online store is down for maintenance. Anyway, it turns out you CAN program the touch pad in the free version, but it's a bit of manual process. The ...

Re: FM8 Program Change doesn't show name in Ableton

Never mind. I'm a dumb. Even though I had the FM8 selected, I had another midi track armed to record, so it was sending program changes to that device.

Why is it only AFTER I ask a question online and expose my stupidity do I discover the solution myself?

As you were. There's nothing to see here.
