Re: Momentary midimapping without m4l

Just posted another approach to this rather annoying problem in this thread. Not necessarily superior, but might be simpler/easier for some people.

Video: Creating Momentary Midi Action with Abes and Midipipe

I know this topic has been touched on several times- the limitation of Ableton in that for many controllers, in can only recognize one message, e.g., note in but not note out when mapping to devices. In order to chop audio on the fly for example, you need to translate each of those to the same messa...

future funk live remix with trumpet, guitar and vocals

Here is a live track that I recorded in one take with Ableton and a bunch of homemade drum loops. Also used some custom Max for Live patches. I'm down to answer any questions about the sounds as well- love to geek out about Live :)

Re: Max editor won't open and/or crashes Live

Hi and sorry for taking so long to follow up on this post. I continue to have this problem and I've posted everything I can think of that might be relevant: 1. Crash immediately upon trying to open editor - Max showed no signs of opening and Live crashed. I was trying to open the device posted below...

Re: Live pad drumming demo- Funky Drummer/Breakbeat style

Hi exaltron, Good to see you in action, really great tip especially with your custom mapping samples (left soft snare, and rest)! I play similar but on hammer keyboard and I ask myself lastly if pads will be better for drums in terms of dynamics and because size of pads is bigger than keys. I would...

Re: Live pad drumming demo- Funky Drummer/Breakbeat style

What the hell is this topic about? I don't get it. Who's trolling whom? Why the link to the "comedy" article? I'm outta here. Uh, guess you had to be there? I had originally linked to a video of an actual drummer by mistake, which didn't match my description at all. Oddstep took this as some kind o...

Nah. I wasn't trolling you. I thought you were deliberately posting a link to Clyde Stubblefield as some sort of breaks tutorial... I thought this is the work of someone making some kind of lamo snide remark about sequencing and deserves a wikipedia reference. Your response was so sincere that I wa...

Re: Live pad drumming demo- Funky Drummer/Breakbeat style

Funny thing - when I start drumming several years ago - I spent ages trying to nail down the funky drummer / amen break thing even if I couldnt play bugger all else :) Thats still the case - I can do breaks/jungle/d&b beats but f*** all else :) It's funny, when I started programming beats in '95 al...

Re: Live pad drumming demo- Funky Drummer/Breakbeat style

That's funny, I just watched that this morning. I wasn't even sure about that term "ghost note" when I made the video, I thought I might have confused that with something else, so I was glad to hear it from him. He is definitely the master- mine is but a cheap imitation until I can afford to hire th...

Live pad drumming demo- Funky Drummer/Breakbeat style

Here is a demo I posted on youtube that demos my technique for creating a 60s/70s soul/funk style drumbeat using a midi pad. Includes screencast that details the drum hits used in impulse and how to configure for this technique. Would love to hear some feedback and happy to answer any questions!

Max editor won't open and/or crashes Live

Hi I am trying to troubleshoot a problem with a harmonizer device (uses some javascript to force harmonization into a certain key). Out of nowhere, I am completely unable to open the Max editor. For a while the spinning square would indicate Max trying to open Live, but would simply stop after a few...

Latency question- monitoring live with effects

Ok so I've been struggling with latency issues for years. Every time I get a more powerful soundcard and/or computer, some new effects (such as pitch-tracking M4L devices and now Amp), create more latency. I have gone through all the threads and the tutorial regarding latency and latency compensatio...
