Re: Help with live launch pad edition

I think that's a limitation of that version of Ableton ?
It's restricted in the number of tracks and vst instruments you can run ?

Re: Need advice. Fabfilter vs Ableton's Audio Effects

If you want my opinion, I would do a bit more mixing and mastering using Ableton's built in tools, and then at least you'll know what you think you're looking for (from other plugins) in the long run. You mention you're not that used to mixing yet, and so now would be the wrong time to start spendin...

Re: Mountain Lion

Mountain Lion is a really restrictive OS compared to Snow Leopard.
"It just works" has become "it's no longer compatible"

Re: Confused About Audio Interfaces

Hey guys, I've been looking at upgrading from my two input audio interface to one with more inputs. I'm getting really confused with a few of the interfaces I've been looking at though. The Focusrite Saffire Pro 24, for example, is throwing me off. It's advertised as having 16 inputs and 8 outputs....

Re: wtf is this 'dimmed' record button ?

I thought using the options.txt would totally get rid of the pink auto rec arm Thank Yeah you're right. I thought it was 9.0.4. but it's probably not. This seems to be a bug to me. I have one track on my default project. click record against an external instrument. 'unlick' record and the record bu...

Re: wtf is this 'dimmed' record button ?

Guessing it might be related to the new Automation Arm button located at the top near the play/stop/record transport. Yeah, I thought it must be related, but turning that on and off doesn't seem to have any effect. The only way I have found to disable it is to turn on, then off, record enable on an...

wtf is this 'dimmed' record button ?

This is doing my head in. As of Ableton 9, every time I hit record on one of my 'external instrument' tracks, one of the other tracks also arms itself with a 'dimmed' record button and thens write over whatever is going on in that track. does anyone else know what this is all about, and what I can d...
