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

The lights flashing suggests that Bonk works correctly. External means the click is externally routed. You're unlikely to be using this method (needs an extra track and extra device but designed to eliminate latency, not that there is much). The idea is you send a click out on a channel and route i...

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

I've tried using M4L Beatseeker and it just didn't work... it couldnt follow our drummer at all so I'm now trying the older B-Keeper in the...

Beatseeker = P.O.S.

I dont know what this device is meant to do.. all i know is what it doesn't do and it DOESNT follow a live drummer ... maybe our band has the world's worst drummer with crazy timing but no matter what we do, Beatseeker just waves the white flag and rolls over. We have tried micing the snare (sm57 so...

Re: Transfering Ableton & Projects to a New Computer

Also be mindful of any licenses that you may have eg. plugin license. I recently transferred all of my Ableton files/folders (except the .exe file) to a new external hard drive ... it totally screwed with my Waves plugins ... now everytime I try using them, the plugin says that a license doesn't exi...

Re: PC Upgrade Question

That's a coincidence... I transferred all of my Live files to another HD only last week ... The main Live.exe is installed on the C: drive but everything else is on a hot-swap SATA drive. This external drive was very old and I've had visions of it going up in a puff of smoke so I transferred the dat...

Re: Installation of WAVES Gold Bundle plugins - small problem

The only file you need in your M:VST folder is WaveShell-VST 9.6.dll. You may want to put this file in a folder M:\vst\waves\WaveShell-VST 9.6.dll. That's all you have to do. The listing of all of those plugins for the Gold Series is normal. There is no way that I know of to group the Waves plugins...

Installation of WAVES Gold Bundle plugins - small problem

Hi all Just a quick question for those of you who are using the Waves Gold bundle plugins with Live. I have a silly question regarding installation of the various components as I don't think they have installed correctly or they may have installed in the wrong place. Installation of the bundle was v...

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

Hi all I've been having major issues with my Scarlett 2i4 and Live 9.2 ... basically, Live won't allow me to change the buffer size and I'm stuck with huge (50ms or more) latency. The computer I've been using is my PC running Win7 64bit although I'm using a 32bit version of Live. I use a Mac Air wit...

Re: Anyone using Beatseeker? ... Advice needed on mic placement

One way to test latency would be to send the click track back into BeatSeeker. You shouldn't need to use piezos, although I'm sure they'd work okay. If you want to send me a recording of the drums live, I can have a look into it? Hi Mars I think we'll give the piezo mic a try ... there's definitely...

Re: Anyone using Beatseeker? ... Advice needed on mic placement

You can also make a simple piezzo mic for 2$, stick it to your kick drum and send this signal to Beatseeker. Even better, you take a stereo jack: one piezo onto the kick drum, one onto the snare and you send this stereo signal to Beatseeker! :wink: Hi Jur yep.... I think a piezo is the way to go .....

Re: Anyone using Beatseeker? ... Advice needed on mic placement

I suggest that you increase the gain on the mic. In terms of mic placement, try the wurst position where it is close to kick and snare. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__Bh3D_Pvt8&t=40 From what you say, it sounds like it's not getting the right signal. Do the three lines of the speaker icon light ...

Hi Can anyone using M4L Beatseeker in a live performance setup please tell me how they are setting up their snare mic to trigger Beatseeker? My band tried using Beatseeker tonight at rehearsal for the first time with very poor results. We've previously been using a click track which the drummer list...

Automate Beatseeker M4L device

Hi All I have worked out a way to automate switching on/off the new Beatseeker M4L device. The device is usually switched on/off by mapping the device to a midi control pad or key. Firstly install Beatseeker in an audio track and then go to your arrangement page. Switch on the envelope option for th...
