Re: Sidechain groups, is a second compressor usefull?

Ultimately, mess around and use your ears - what sounds best?

My guess is the side gain compressor has pretty fast attack and release as its function is to duck signal, so it would definitely be worth experimenting with a second compressor :)

Well shoot. It looks like that won’t work. It doesn’t look good mate. https://www.vsl.co.at/community/posts/t ... post286120

Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

Gotcha, daxxus- I looked into the product more and it looks amazing...but that price! So, I did find something that said the VST3 version of the plugin will support multiple ports in Live (if you use version 10.1 or above). Here’s the post, mate: https://www.vsl.co.at/community/posts/t40525-How-do-I...

Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

Oh mate - this is waaaay above my knowledge level. I can see exactly what you're wanting to do and why you're wanting to do it, but the network thing is throwing me for a loop. That 40-second video doesn't give anything away! I can see he has the server software running on both machines, and I can s...

Re: Anyone score to picture with Live 10?

I've had decent luck with video - but I've only used it for commercials, so we're talking 1 to 1.5 minutes. I didn't find it too cumbersome, and I scored and did sound design all within Abe. I mastered within Live, too. Oh, I've done some corporate vid projects too (3-5 mins) - basic scoring and dia...

Re: No audio to master with new apollo?

Here’s a quick thought - I was in a similar situation a few weeks ago. It sounds silly, but I had selected the big knob to adjust input gain, instead of output level. Try messing with those mate.

(Although this doesn’t address why it works on new sessions and not old ones)...

Re: Getting Plug-ins to Run on Ableton and Logic Pro X

In addition to the above, Ableton won’t run the native Logic plug-ins...not sure if you’re trying to do that.

Re: exporting to WAV file, saves at lower pitch! Why??

I guess it is not a common problem, but any help whould be appreciated ... What happens when you sample your material at 48kHz? That’s a great question. I’ve had trouble with pitch before when the sample playback rate hasn’t matched the record rate. Are you playing the wav back in Ableton or anothe...

Re: Can't Set Up Headphones for CUE!

I'm not sure "why" but the logic is you can only pick one interface as an output. You can use the internal one, or you can use an external one. You can't mix and match. That's just the way it is. That being said, you might be able to create virtual outputs using something like Rogue Amoeba's Loopbac...

Re: Suite 9 to standard 10? Downgrade?

I think you can still buy Max for Live as a separate product so that non suite users can still access it. Whether or not that still applies I don’t know now, but that should cross over to Live 10. Of course the Ableton licence team will be able to answer this question. Which ever way you look at it...

Re: Best soundcard to buy?

I just got the new UAD Apollo X4 - I absolutely love it. Like, I really LOVE it.

Portable, sounds great, I can link to my Scarlett 18i20 via ADAT, and the console software is brilliant.

Re: Mixing/Mastering EP

Like Jester said, switching DAW won’t help you with mixing and mastering. Arguably, you can achieve identical results in ProTools, Studio One, Reaper, you name it. Sounds like the issues you’re having include technical problems - are you trying to get a more spontaneous feel for your music like in a...

Re: Slight Crackling in my Kicks

Not trying to be dumb (although I am), are your speakers okay? You mention it only happens when you add other tracks. This is very odd.

Re: Beginner Meltdown

You're already on the right path. Critical listening is a skill - stepping back and re-visiting often provides a fresh perspective. I bet most of us can relate to you, we've all been there (and continue to go there!) Keep on using your ears, analyze the sounds of others, try to replicate, make happy...
