Re: Please Help - Unable to adjust buffer size with Scarlett 2i4

Hi Bosco I posted the original question to the forum a while back and so far, I still can't change the buffer size from within Live. I found that I can change the buffer size by adjusting the buffer length through the Focusrite audio driver software. If you're using a PC, go to your Start menu and l...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Studiojohnny has a fair point though .... Ableton really seems to be pushing 'Push' (ha ha ... sorry ... couldn't stop myself). Push is a nice bit of hardware but completely useless for how I use Live and I'd also like to see some new features in the next version of Live that caters for us mere mort...

Is anyone here using B-Keeper to sync Live and real drums?

Hi all Just wondering if anyone here is using the old B-Keeper device to sync Live with a real drummer ... I know that B-Keeper was replaced not so long ago by Beatseeker (M4L device) but I could never get any joy from that device and so went back to B-Keeper. There is a parameter page hidden in B-K...

Can someone pls help routing my 6i6 using Mix Control?

Hi all I am using a Scarlett 6i6 and I'm having trouble working out how to route the instruments in my band's setup correctly. A bit of background: Our bass player recently left so as a stopgap, I'm using a bass synth that is being controlled by a Live channel containing an External Instrument plugi...

Re: Live doesn't like my Scarlett 2i4

Hi bkg2018 Thanks for your post. In the end I fixed it by sheer brute force ... I uninstalled the 2i4 drivers, Live and Max7 ... rebooted a couple of times for good measure and then re-installed everything - checking things along the way. I've had this problem a couple of times before and i don't kn...

Live doesn't like my Scarlett 2i4

Hi all I've recently had a problem with using Live and my Focusrite 2i4 ... basically, Live will boot up normally but hangs when opening up Live sets. It tries to load all samples but usually gets about half way and then freezes. I also cant preview any sounds from the Live library. If I unplug the ...

Re: B-Keeper (not Beatseeker) installation problem. Help needed!

B-Keeper Update: FAN-F***ING-TASTIC!!!!!! It worked brilliantly with our drummer and kept time with his (slightly) erratic drumming ... we gave him a metronome cue to start the song (courtesy of a metronome app) and he was able to trigger the start of the song at almost the correct tempo ... B-Keepe...

Re: B-Keeper (not Beatseeker) installation problem. Help needed!

I've tried again with Beatseeker and am having much more success now, I'm going into blue mode and it is reacting to the incoming audio's tempo. I have no idea why I wasn't seeing this the 1st time. Hi Barstu Glad to hear you're finally having some success with Beatseeker. Can you please tell me ho...

Re: B-Keeper (not Beatseeker) installation problem. Help needed!

I gave B-keeper a try, there are a lot of settings that are unlabelled, if it had more documentation I'd have more confidence in using it on stage. Yep ... that's my main gripe with B-Keeper... there are lots of parameters to adjust but no instructions or documentation ... who knows what each knob ...

Re: B-Keeper (not Beatseeker) installation problem. Help needed!

Hey I'm getting the same thing with Beatseeker, I'm using a pre recorded wav of my drummer to 'simulate' a live situation by playing it from an app outside of ableton and bringing it in via soundflower. When in listening mode, it seems spot on, then pressing the 'button' (I'm assuming the button th...

Re: B-Keeper (not Beatseeker) installation problem. Help needed!

Hmmmm... the plot definitely thickens... Beatseeker is definitely not adjusting tempo despite it being able to 'hear' a signal from a drum machine. I sent Beatseeker a kick+snare combo (4 beats to the bar) as opposed to just sending a snare by itself as i did previously. Beatseeker showed that it co...

Re: B-Keeper (not Beatseeker) installation problem. Help needed!

Yes, this is actually "learned" in BK. It observes the time difference (due to Max For Live starting Live and the 50msec delay in that happening). It should schedule the message ahead of time once this has occurred. If you do use BK, then check that in "expert" the response value is reasonable (0.6+...
