What's the best way to synthesize a choir sound?

Specifically, your typical choir ooh and choir aah. There has to be a relatively simple way to synthesize them, as they appear in even the cheesiest of MIDI sounds. I'm wondering what there base waves are, as I'd like to create some heavily modified choir-based synth sounds, but I need to know their...

Rebinding the touch ribbon

I've seen several videos where people are using the Push's touch ribbon for various effects that I'm wondering how to set up. The most noticeable one I found was someone using the ribbon in a drum rack to change the pitch of certain drum/percussion sounds (to get a scratching effect). Thing is, in t...

Re: Fixed Length recording starts off-measure

No worries, I understand the frustration. The thing is, I can't imagine that there isn't some sort of fix for this issue. Push is a performance controller. People perform with it all the time. If this issue wasn't able to be fixed somehow, you'd hear everyone complaining about it, and it wouldn't be...

Launchpad: stop clip without recording?

Not sure if I've just been spoiled by the Push or if I'm missing a feature/option somewhere... I've got a Push and a Launchpad. On the Push's Session View; if you hit an empty clip in a track, it will cut that track at the next beat. In the Launchpad, hitting an empty clip in the track will, seeming...

Fixed Length recording starts off-measure

Every now and then, usually once I have several clips going in a track, I will go to record a new clip using the "Fixed length" button on the Push. Once I hit record, Ableton opens the midi track of the appropriate length, but the problem is that the recording starts somewhere other than beat 1 when...

Hooked up a Launchpad, now all instruments are missing?

I just hooked up my Novation Launchpad Mini for the first time, booted up Ableton and everything seemed to be working fine, until I went to add a new drum rack and realized that every folder in the "Categories" section showed nothing, and User Library in "Places" is also empty. I can't say for 100% ...

Viewing my VSTs in Push's "Browse" mode

I have seen that there is no longer a need to put a third-party script into Push to have it be able to browse VSTs, and that they can all be found in the "Places" section of the browser. However, I still don't see my VSTs there. "Places" has three subfolders; Packs, User Library, and Current Project...

Inconsistent Lighting

I read somewhere that there was going to be an official release for calibrating the LEDs on the Push to get them all at the same brightness. It was just a forum post somewhere, I just wanted to know if there is any official news on this topic. Changing the colors of the pads makes it less noticeable...

Re: Current situation with changing Push colors?

No you got it backwards. .pyc is compiled. That is what Ableton provides. (They don't like people tinkering with their scripts too much I guess). .py is the uncompiled original file, the one you can edit. (but which Ableton doesn't give you) If you have a .py file you don't need to do anything to r...

Re: Current situation with changing Push colors?

.pyc is the compiled version of .py You need to decompile them or look for already decompiled versions on the web. Julian Bayle is a good source for these. Yeah, I've tried compiling the .py but I can't ever seem to get it to work. I've tried several things, any suggestions? As far as getting the p...

Current situation with changing Push colors?

So I've done a bit of looking in to changing the colors that Push uses, and I've found people talking about changing some .py file in Ableton's directory for Push. However, it seems that this information is a bit outdated, because the files I found in there are now .pyc files, and cannot be simply o...
