Re: Dithering?

So the audio that was imported was still 16 bit but my ableton is set to record at 24 Bit. The audio is not being recorded, so do I still have to adjust this parameter down from 24 bit to 16 bit if I am just bouncing with no effects at all other than the fades in the clips? I.e. should I switch it ...

Re: FAILSAFE backing up advice

I don't believe projects are saved in the Abelton folder by default, not on mac anyway. So you'd have to back up wherever you are saving your projects. Btw if you want complete idiot proof peace of mind for backup I use an online service called Backblaze. It's automated online backup of all your dat...

Re: AudioUnits vs VSTs?

hey,

over the years I've observed that VSTs seems to be more stable and cause fewer strange issues. so at a certain point I switched to using VSTs.

I have no idea what the technical reasons for this may be but that is my anecdotal experience.

Re: Advance side-chain compression (track delay+custom attacks)

hey, if you mean 'click' like the sound of the compressor clamping down too fast, you might try a longer attack. There is also a popular plugin called "LFO Tool" by Xfer for doing exactly as you describe to create "fake" sidechaining (among other functions) that works really well when you need to de...

Re: How did the producer make this synth rhythm? thoughts?

haha, this is from the stems to Into You by Ariana Grande. prod by ilya and max martin. to my ear, there are 2 main layers to the sound. the pad playing the chords, and the drone higher octave lead sound. The pad has an attack, and the lead does not. Both these are compressed super hard together, so...

Re: Sudden volume drop of one track n Live 10.0.5

Ya did 10.0.3 fix this issue?

Because if not, yes as Mark Williams mentioned the culprit could be clip automation or clip modulation , which does NOT show up in automation lanes in Arrange view. It's embedded in the Clip Envelopes.

does it happen if you recreate the project from scratch?

Re: Sudden volume drop of one track n Live 10.0.5

puzzling indeed. maybe some weird 10.0.5 specific thing is giving bad commands to your VSTs. This occurred on mac on 10.0.2 with audio units that would result in random parameter changes You can download 10.0.3 here, give it a try: https://cdn-downloads.ableton.com/channels/10.0.3/ableton_live_suite...

Re: Can I use a midi channel as a midi controller?

hey Buklen, this seems like a complex workaround for an issue that could be solved at the source -- what is the other software that keeps changing the tempo of your project?

Re: Sudden volume drop of one track n Live 10.0.5

Are you working in session or arrangement view?

Have you checked clip automation as well as arrangement automation?

IWhat VSTs? Is it the same VST ?

Re: Multi-Kontakt Drum Racks: LONG load times... :(

how many pads in the drum rack have an instance of Kontakt?

could very well be par for the course for loading up many instances of a large sample library..

Re: Any tips for some GOOD studio headphones?

I bought the KRK 8400 headphones for £100 and they are the best headphones I've ever had. There is also the cheaper KRK 6400 that are great too (£69). They both have really good reviews. I also have KRK 8400. they are the best. I would kind of describe them like an ns10 of headphones .. they are ma...
