Re: Mixer Inputs with Ableton

BTW the software is called Live. Ableton is the company. :roll: I see this phrase sometimes and i find it very pedantic. I use the name Ableton, too. My reasons: 1- Name refers to the thing. If it is referring right, then it is right. Most people prefer the name Ableton over Live, so be it! 2- Does...

Re: Need help to set up all my stuff

I'd connect Korg to one Ableton channel.
This way you can apply Abletons effects to Korg and use internal mixer.

Re: Clips for DJing- convert to WAV first?

Ableton doesn't open compressed files directly, converts them to wav and puts in /cashes folder. It is 10 GB maximum by default, but you can adjust it from Preferences>file and folders>decoding cash>maximum cash size. There is no further processing after they are cashed (not more than original wav f...

Re: Is Apple losing its way in music tech?

The only real OS alternative I see these days is Linux . Using Ubuntu on my PC feels more like a Mac than ever. Bitwig is available for Ubuntu… I'm not there yet, but keeping my eyes on the platform. I feel the same way. I installed recently Ubuntu Studio to a friends old pc and it was more "mac" t...

Re: NI people ready for macOS Sierra

I'm getting very, very high processor usage (and battery drain) on my 12" MacBook using Live 9.6.2 in Sierra… :-/ Is it an older machine? Every time I update my MBP it seems to get slower and slower (I suspect Apple do it purposefully to make people upgrade their machines). This for the most part w...

Re: Ableton/Reaktor/Kontrol F1 Sequencer

If you can't solve how to use it as VST, try this: Standalone, Reaktor master: Reaktor: File/Audio & Midi settings/midi/outputs: reaktor virtual output>on Settings/send midi clock to midi output Ableton: Preferences/Link midi/input: reaktor sync>on Click top left "EXT" button in Ableton and they run...

Re: Natural Bass?

However, it won't show up in the Live Lite instrument rack, so I'm wondering if the Lite version prevents plugins being loaded? Live lite don't prevent loading any VST instrument but has less native devices than Standart and Suite. It is probably a Sampler instrument, only Suite includes sampler (l...

Re: How to import Mp3 into Ableton live lite 9?

I don't know whether Live lite import MP3 (which is weird if it doesn't) but even if that is the case, you're not missing anything. Ableton already don't work with MP3 files. when you drag an MP3, it converts the file to PCM wav inside a cache folder and opens this wave file. So,you can convert the ...

Re: Ableton Link. It's not just for apps anymore.

I will upgrade my old Reason 3 then.

For Maschine & Reaktor: NI may release something like "NativeConnectStandart"
which will connect NI products only. In a buggy way.
I doubt they will support Link.

Re: Best "on stage" midi looper for Live?

Why dont you record a midi clip and overdub it?
You can create 1-2-4 etc bar empty clips, record and overdub.
Even for audio i prefer to record clips, so i can manipulate volumes of layers independantly.
