Re: How to change key of a kick drum?

assuming you are playing a sampled kick through simpler...use the transpose function. you can use a spectrum analysis tool to get a read on what key it is in. if not well..just use your ears.

"The Man Who Broke The Music Business"

A great new article published in the New Yorker; regarding Dell Glover, and his role in pioneering modern file-sharing practices...or piracy if you wish to put it that way. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/04/27/the-man-who-broke-the-music-business thought it'd interest a few of you out there....

Re: Drum Rack Effect (Compressor) Placement

I usually compress to shape a sound then glue-comp within a group to tie them together. Just make sure your compression at the individual level is all done to good taste so that your glue-comp/end compressor has a good signal to work with. However it is all dependent on what you are hearing/your pre...

Re: Loop Question

How do i turn this off? I've seen someone do it but can't remember how to do it. Thank you! /A turn off...

Re: APC Key 25

Near the + button is also a hollow o button. You cannot overdub unless that is activated. On mine, it won't even record an initial clip, much less overdub; and again, the Push works fine with the same controls... well...it should record into an empty slot. have the record arm enabled. hit the clip ...

Re: APC Key 25

In ableton, to the right of the play and stop buttons, there is a +, I would bind this to a computer keyboard shortcut or a shortcut on your apc, this + sign when lit enables overdubbing of a midi region, wether it is automation or new notes to the existing region. I tried this, and it didn't work ...

APC Key 25

Anyone else got this sucker? I grabbed one because it was cheap, small, and seemed to have a good balance of features. Admittedly the keys could be a lot better, but hey, you get what you pay for. Does anyone know if there's a way to overdub a currently existing midi loop from the key 25? or do you ...
