Re: After 10 years with ableton I just tried Studio One...

I'm gonna have to agree with that. I always used to have an OK/shit core of a song, and just kept adding track (though never up to 50, 25 max)upon track, plugin after plugin, not realizing that I was polishing turds for so long. Castles built on sand. Nowadays I only use a maximum of three tracks AT...

Re: Melodic step sequencer follow playback

Holding SHIFT (or is it SELECT..at work, so can't check - but one of these 2 buttons), and then pressing the cell (in the top row) you want to focus on will stop the display moving along with the playhead to the next cell and so on. To have it follow the playhead again, hold SHIFT (SELECT?) and sele...

Re: Push in my mailbox today !

Session view per-clip automation most certainly works with Push/live 9. Be sure to have the "Automation" button as well as the red record button engaged for your clips to record automation data.

Re: Getting Push soon (maybe)

Yeah, I was in your boat for months because I already had other gear which all combined could do what Push can do. But not all of it, and not nearly as fluidly. I thought it was simply gearlust, and that all the pretty lights were beguiling me. Best hardware I've ever used.Three months on, and I'm s...

Looking to buy new laptop

Hello I currently use a 4 year old desktop, first gen i7 at 2.6ghz, 6 gig RAM, 1TB 7200rpm HD, Windows Home Premium 7 64 bit, and a Nvidia GTX295. I switch between using my Pod HD desktop guitar unit and an Edirol UA25 for an audio interface. Latency could be better, but it's OK for now. I wanna go ...

Re: Changing names of Bank1 Bank2 Bank3 etc..

Totally agree. I just posted this on the Beta forum, and the Give Feedback area, which is basically what you are suggesting: When configuring a VST, currently it simply places each parameter in banks of 8, in the order that you've selected them. I want to organize these banks: name them, have less t...

Re: Learn to play ableton push or piano?

If you're saying, in a nutshell, that you prefer expressive musical output as opposed to technical proficiency, or "chops", I agree with you. Virtuosos are, to me, for the most part, boring and uninteresting. I'd much rather listen to Kurt Cobain playing one of his fairly simple but highly expressiv...

Re: Getting Push soon (maybe)

Hello (1) I do not feel fundamentally limited in any way, quite the opposite effect. Since getting Push, I simply don't look at the PC screen or use the mouse and keyboard. I make electronic music with sprinkles of guitars and vocals here and there. I can build a whole sketch of a song from scratch ...

Re: Learn to play ableton push or piano?

My money would be on actual Piano lessons. Piano has been around for hundreds of years and will be much more worth learning other than just playing classical. Learning a bit about pianos, proper playing techniques and even theory will go further than which buttons to press on a Push. I guess it com...

Re: Push Clips Disappear When Closing Group

Yes this is normal. I think it's fixed in the beta, for the upcoming 9.1 update. Beta 9.20b to be exact, but I'm still on 9.18b, so can't check.

Re: Help find this laptop!

If you're in the UK, pcspecialist has a lot of laptops, all customizable. I'm thinking of going mobile and getting one myself. You can get all the specs you want from there, except only 250GB SSD. Good prices as well, and seems to have a good reputation.

Re: Live 8 legacy pack???????????

it would be nice if live 8's presets could get merged in to live 9's folders...not a big deal going to places - live 8 library, but still, would be ever so slightly more convenient.

Re: Push feature requests

One thing I sorely miss on Push - to transpose a midi clip up/down by any specified octave. Very often I'd record a loop, and then browse different instruments to play the loop. Some will be pitched too high, some too low - and most sound drastically different when comparing really low notes to real...

Re: Transposing Audio + Avoiding Multiple Instances of Plug In's

Do you mean you have an audio sample of a single bass note? If so, the easiest way to enable you to play melodies with it via MIDI, would be to place it in either a Simpler or a Sampler. This essentially turns your audio file into an instrument. Drag a Simpler into a midi channel, then drag your aud...
