Re: Converting to MP3?

Question: does anyone know how changing extension from Wav to MP3 in info differs from doing it in iTunes? I right clicked just a test to see if it works. Seems like the quality is the same and I examined the waveforms and didn't notice a difference. And thoughts on this process? It's actually real...

Re: Converting to MP3?

Certain people do not want anything but MP3s sent to them. That's just reality. Maybe the forum can collectively come up with an intelligent but non-confrontational letter explaining why that request is dated and no longer necessary that you can fire off to these dinosaurs. :wink: Sad part is most ...

Re: Converting to MP3?

Why convert to mp3? Doesn’t just about everything support higher quality files now? I hear you. HATE mp3's, but they are easier to share with collaborators, etc. I don’t know if “easier” is the correct term if you are talking about file size. It’s not like we are still on dialup speeds and 80 GB to...

I was using Max and it was super quick, but I noticed a significant latency between the Wav and the resulting mp3. The MP3 start about 1/2 a bar late. That kinda wigs me out. Any idea how to fix that?

Copy/paste automation from channel to send?

I know this is a bit silly, but I'm curious if anyone has tried this. Recorded a guitar part and used delay and reverb on the channel. I automated them to get them just right, but I usually don't work this way. I usually use sends. Just wanted to experiment, and I like it. However, I'd like to do an...

Re: Admin password to start Ableton?

I still occasionally switch between using Live 8 and Live 9. I get this message when I boot up either version for the first time after using the other version. I believe it may be associated with installing the ReWire engine, which goes pretty deep into mac core audio/core midi services. Sorry I ca...

Admin password to start Ableton?

Is this standard and something everyone has to do?

I always get this message:

"Ableton Live 9 Suite wants to make changes. Type your password to allow this."

Then is prompts me for my admin mac pass.

Re: Anyone switch from Cubase to Ableton?

I'm not a switcher, but I also don't see why a full switch would be necessary (unless you want to sell the Cubase license). Both programs have their strengths and weaknesses and in this case they even supplement each other in theirs. Ableton Live: awesome in creating and sound design and coming up ...

Anyone switch from Cubase to Ableton?

Since I switched from Cubase I'd like to get your reasoning on why you switched, what you like better, etc. If you switched from another DAW like Pro Tools or Logic, feel free to chime in as well.
