Re: Inserting a drum loop

The Core 606 Drums are an instrument, which is why you cannot drag it onto an audio track; it uses MIDI. Since it is an instrument, you will need to create a MIDI clip to tell the drum instrument what you want it to play. You can use a simple beat, but you need to program that in.

Re: Ableton and Patchbays

It really depends on what you mean by "outboard gear". If you have a bunch of hardware synths or other instruments, then yeah, it's all about the inputs. But if you mean "outboard gear" like compressors, EQ, reverb, etc, then you need both--more inputs and outputs. You'll need more than the typical ...

Can you route the sound to the computer's speakers?
If you on Windows, then no. You'll have to plug your computer speakers into the Focusrite interface. Most computer speakers are powered, so shouldn't be much of a problem except for getting the right plug adapters to make the connections.

Re: ASIO4allv2 with Youtube together

Based on the title of your post.... are you trying to run two soundcards? Or do you really just need to run Live and YouTube at the same time? All the Focusrite interfaces I've used allow you to record YouTube, SoundCloud, etc straight into Live without any special connections or settings (which is ...

Re: How to start audio from different playback positions across parts?

If you've set a Locator in arrangement view and the song doesn't start playing from that point when you click on the Locator, something is not working right. Not sure I understand what your last sentence means though... changing audio playback on the piano roll (not MIDI?) in session view (but you'r...

Re: recording electric guitar with ts cable to audio interface is very quite (PLS HELP)

Just guessing... but doesn't running your electric guitar straight into your audio interface require a Hi-Z input? The Komplete Audio 1 doesn't have one of those. Not an expert on this, but I think you need to DI box between the guitar and the audio interface.

Re: Lock parameters in VSTs while browsing presets

Sounds like part of your issue could be solved by clicking the disk icon on the Live plugin and saving your changes to your own personal preset. You wouldn't have to tweak the release of your bass sound every time you return to it because it would be saved for you. Works with every vst, instrument o...

Re: Mertronome Count-in Only

Click on the pull-down arrow next to the metronome tool and select the number of bars of count in. Then *don't* activate the metronome tool. The metronome will only click during the count in as long as the tool is not active. Additionally, any clip can have negative measures. Simply change the Start...

Re: Create a Scale from Midi Selection?

Yes, you can do exactly what you describe. The matrix you see in the Scale effect is completely customizable. You could create scales that don't even exist (if there is such a thing). Dial in the Base (root) note then click on the boxes in the MIDI effect to choose the notes you want. Hit the save i...

Re: Possible to make a groove with first beat ahead of 1.1.1?

Try swapping the positions of your beginning loop and start markers. Put the start marker at 1.1.1, but put the loop 1/32 before 1.1.1. It should then play the extra note just before hitting 1.1.1.

Re: Possible to make a groove with first beat ahead of 1.1.1?

Open your MIDI clip and look at the Start fields. Change the start from "1" to "-1". This will open up some space on the front end of the MIDI clip that will allow it to start before 1.1.1. You can then drag the start marker closer to the right if needed. This works with audio clips as well.

Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to play two instruments at the same time (e.g. bass and guitar) I opened an instrument rack in Ableton. Dragged a vst of Kontakt into the rack.
