Extra midi notes when adding sample layers

Hey all! So I learned about this method of creating instrument racks as a chain layer within a drum rack cell as a way to layer samples together. I've seen it work in live 8 but when I go to implement this method in live 9, I noticed that when you do add in additional chains within the same drum rac...

Re: Adding layers to a drum rack cell

Actually that was it precisely. It's only slightly annoying that it adds it as a separate instrument rack since I have to readjust the volume levels of each layer, but at least I can get all the layers I need to be triggered by the same midi note :mrgreen:

Adding layers to a drum rack cell

So in live 8, there was a way to add layers to a drum rack cell by holding ctr (cmd on mac) and dragging the sample onto the cell. The cell would be labeled multi to let you know you had multiple samples on that cell I'm using live 9 and I can't seem to do this. I tried holding ctr, shift + ctr, not...

Alchemy Player installation noob

So I just downloaded the Alchemy Player. Copied the installed files to my vst folder and I can see it when I launch Ableton, but I don't know how to actually go about using Alchemy player itself. The weird thing is it shows up in my live 8 vst library (I'm using Live 9) but not in my regular vst fol...

Copying midi patterns in between tracks limits the keyboard

So I'm copying midi patterns from one track to another and when I go to edit the pattern in the new track, I noticed that after switching back and forth between the two, the piano keyboard range is restricted to the notes in the pattern. I tried zooming out on the keyboard, as I thought it just coll...

Layering drum samples vs. M4L drum synth

Does anyone out there have any tips or comparisons between the two? Preferences? I'm trying to decide which would be a more efficient way to do drum sound design and while layering samples/synths is usually my default, I was wondering if the drum synth would eliminate layering as a technique altoget...

Mapulator

So, I recently discovered a device called Mapulator by Mad Zach. I am in awe 8O I'm really attracted to the idea of mapping multiple parameters with one knob and tweak the individual envelopes to sit with each other. This opens up a world of possibility when thinking about playing in front of an aud...

Re: Convolution Reverb Crashing Live EVERYTIME!

I've experienced this with multiple M4L devices that come stock (convolution reverb and granulator 2). I am running an AMD CPu as well, 3.8 quad core. Thanks for sharing, I'll keep my ears to the ground for an update

Re: Max for live device idea

I did a little more brainstorming I guess what I'm aiming for is complete tactile control for composing a tune on the fly. I have some ideas about a default template set up for a live set. Being able to generate a beat with some drum racks in launchpad's user 1 mode, mix in some spatial effects and ...

Re: Max for live device idea

Well, I want to be able to manipulate more than just effects in real time. I actually just saw a vid for an M4L device called Kapture by Plastikman and Liine. I think they are onto something close to what I want to achieve One of the concepts I'm trying to emulate is being able to perform a track us...

Re: Ableton crashes whenever I open a max for live device

Yeah, I'm on live 9. The devices I dl'ed were from the M4L site and I got them individually. I have the live 9 suite. Everything seemed to be ok with installation. I can see all the stock devices in the M4L tab, but everytime I try to drag any from that tab sepcifically, it just crashes. Even when I...
