Common problem, low input recording levels from mixer...

I'm not sure how to fix this problem. We run a QU32 Allen & Heath mixer into our iMac and thus Ableton Live. When we record someone speaking on a wireless headset from the stage, the levels, despite the input slider on the channel strip in Ableton, are low. We find ourselves having to boost the reco...

Re: How can I duplicate a track INCLUDING the MIDI mappings?

You could use a max 4 live device called MultiMap. It creates a single knob that you can map to 8 destinations, including another multimap knob. So, you could drop a bunch of these into a midi track and then map them to the macro knobs in other tracks such that when you turn one knob, the rest of th...

Re: Custom Midi Drumset

So, what is your Arduino sending to Ableton Live? Are you on a MAC or PC? You can download and install a MIDI monitoring program that will show you what's coming into the system. Without that, you won't know which notes are being triggered. Normally the drum pads in the drum rack are tied to MIDI no...

Re: Adding to a downloaded project file

You should be able to use the File Manager to reconnect missing samples to the project. MacOS -> File -> Manage Files.

Re: microphone tracks with monitor off not sending to master?

If you're using a sound interface that has its own mix software, consider routing the microphone directly to the output on the interface. If you want to record what you're singing, you should be able to set the input on the track to the input that you're connected to on the audio interface, but your...

Re: On-going problem with Scarlett 18i8 in Ableton live intro

USB HUB is a definite NO with the 18i8. I have have a 1st gen for a few years now and I did have problems when I tried to use even a powered USB Hub.

I'm direct to the powered USB bus now and no problems.

Re: Use 2 midi controllers to control only 1 track

Set both of your instruments to a specific MIDI channel...like... 2.

Then on a MIDI track, select All Ins, then select Ch. 2. If I'm not mistaken, the track will listen to messages on channel 2 regardless of which instrument is sending them.

One piano connected to a MacBook with Ableton Live and VST's for live instruments. That same piano has audio output with a piano sound that I prefer to use that guarantees no latency. If we use backing tracks in Ableton, and we have to pitch shift any of the parts, we would also normally transpose t...

Re: Exclude sequencer while editing the MIDI map

Any time MIDI map mode is on, if an element in Ableton is selected and you touch a control that has remote enabled in preferences, Ableton assigns that control to the element you've clicked. If you sequence anything in a clip, and then you try to map while it's playing, your selected control will ta...
