Re: Groove Agent 4 doesn't show up in Live 9

It doesn't show up under VSTs for me, no matter how many times I rescan. It does, however, show up under AU and seems to work fine from there. Thanks for the reply, though!

Re: Ableton on tablet

welcome to the club my friend :) creating beats and sounds during a meeting and boring flight is also what I'm after. Because of the nature of our company, 90% of my meetings are virtual, so I don't have to leave my office. I've become very adept at 'multi-tasking'; sketching around in Ableton or S...

Groove Agent 4 doesn't show up in Live 9

Anyone else pick up Groove Agent 4? I have it, installed it just fine, licensed and can run it in standalone mode. However, I cannot seem to get it to show up in Live 9 (64-bit). On the off chance that it's only 32-bit, I re-ran jBridgeM's scan and it didn't create bridge file for it. What do I have...

Re: Ableton on tablet

Always in the mood for a portable pinball machine for Windows, because I have several Pinbal FX2 tables on Steam and other games. Specially since it's also able to run Live. Coupled with the new Electribe, going to be a complete portable studio. Tablet is getting more interesting. PBFX2, Civ V and ...

Re: Ableton on tablet

Lately I've been eyeing up the Lenovo Miix 2 11". The one on the microsoft page. Pros: good price, comes with 'keyboard', still is a tablet form factor Cons: does not have the neat Surface Pro 3 type stylus. Is made of plastic. The 'keyboard'. In terms of 'bang for buck,' I think one of the higher ...

Re: Ableton on tablet

Yeah, what do you mean by 'yet' ? It'll run. Depending on the processor and your set, you may have different results. For the most part it can handle basic sets. The only other thing to consider is that Live isn't completely made for multi-touch. So you still have to use it like you would with a mo...

Re: Ableton on tablet

I run Ableton Live 9 Suite with a handful of plugins (Korg Legacy collection and a couple others) and Cakewalk Sonar X3e Producer on a Surface Pro 2 (8GB/256GB, i5) without issues. I also use a Korg NanoKey 2 with it. Works pretty well.

Re: Record audio -> midi -> musical notation

Googling (well, startpage.com-ing) "midi to notation" turned this up as the first link. And it appears to be free. Looks like it imports MIDI files, but I have never used it.

Re: Running NI software as stand-alone.

Actually you just fixed it for me. As I suspected it was something simple. For "Device" in the audio/midi settings I had my audio interface selected, thinking that this was for input. I switched it to "built-in" on both FM8 and Maschine and they both work great now. I appreciate your replies and he...

Re: Running NI software as stand-alone.

Yes. I use a Mac and it's set to Core Audio which I think is correct. In the FM8, it was set to Saffire (my outboard audio interface), so the sound came through my monitors. I changed it to "onboard sound" (or is it "onboard speakers") and the sound came through the speakers on my iMac (which, btw,...

Re: Running NI software as stand-alone.

I'm on OSX, so maybe Windows is different. I just launched FM8 and it works without having a host (Ableton) open. Have you gone in to File->Audio and MIDI Settings... and made sure it was sending output to the device/speakers you have connected?

Not a bad thing at all. Quite the contrary.

Re: I wish i could do a monthly subscription to Ableton.....

If Live became a subscription only product I would probably stay on the current version "forever", then switch to something else. +1. This is why I still have Photoshop and Premiere Pro CS6 and haven't (won't) go to CC. The versions I have do all that I need (and more). The functionality in Live 9 ...

Re: Running Ableton off an external ssd via thundebolt

Coincidentally, I spent part of my day looking at external Thunderbolt drives with the idea of moving K9U off the boot drive of my iMac. I'm interested in any feedback you get for your question. Might have some applicability to my plan.

Re: Post your August 2014 track

My second (and likely last for this month) track for August. Playing around with the Push, trying to figure out how "it all works." Incredibly simple tune with a Kontakt drum kit and Sylenth track. Can't remember what else I threw on there. Interstellar Freight Edit: Also made it public on Splice fo...
