Re: Why use integrated reverb, delay, on synth plugins

I usually turn them off. My preference is to focus on the synthesis aspect first, then effects. As mentioned above using the built in verb or delay masks the sound you're trying to make IMO. However, depending on what youre trying to go for, they can make for quick application to guide you to your d...

Re: Are Samples more accurate @bove 140 bpm

Yes this is a known issue with Live. Once you get above 135BPM you start getting into tempos typical of Dubstep and Drum&Bass. Live was really only meant to handle minimal house (as evidenced through their demo videos), which is at the sweet spot of 120-130BPM. Ever notice how the default tempo is ...

Re: Ableton controllers-Push

cool beans, thank you. I think it boils down to Push or APC 40. My goal would be to use for quicker compositional workflow in session. Lots of duplicating scenes or clips, record arm, undo, record arm after undo, tamp tempo, renaming clips, scenes or channels, metronome count in. 1. Find drum loop,...

Re: Ableton controllers-Push

The push can be a bit difficult to navigate at first; im always learning something new about it I feel. But it is pretty good for an all purpose controller. It is set up to be used with session view as a default.

Re: your favorite plugins/bundles

Re: Markers within SAMPLER?

If you do the above, I would probably rather take the Sel tab to do it. It lets you assign different SampleSelector ranges in the same manner. With the advantage that a.) you can dial in that loop start with the SampleSelector via an encoder b.) you can still use the midi notes for their intended p...
