Re: Request: Max for Live Blocks

Would be cool if there were more building blocks for Max for Live, sort of like Reaktor 6, for people like me who aren't into coding but still would like to use Max for Live to create things. I know there are already some building block type of tools out there, including an Ableton Pack for downloa...

Re: Freeze clips (rather than the entire track)

Well, actually - Bitwig has an aptly called Time Shift device that can delay your signal or move it forward in time (by delaying everything else). Really clever and useful (eg. to do a look-ahead compressor): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQfSwv_bcSE Hehe, yes I'm of course aware of actual look a...

Re: Freeze clips (rather than the entire track)

So in this particular case, when running the track, FM-4 and 5 nested FX get dynamically replaced by audio sample, so they don't consume CPU cycles and they're turned back on as soon as MIDI shows up. Thanks for taking the time to demonstrate that, it really is quite cool and I wasn't aware of this...

Re: Freeze clips (rather than the entire track)

A quick render function like this would let you select a clip and, for example, holding a key modifier drag that selection somewhere else, rendering that selection on the fly when releasing the drag. BTW, this is also available in Bitwig - I can grab the clip, drag it with a modifier (I think it's ...

Re: Freeze clips (rather than the entire track)

@antic604, I'm not following. As I understood the suggestion it's about freezing everything in a few clips rather than all clips in a track. While freezing just the instruments would be very welcome I think that's a different suggestion? I assume I missed something, so please clarify. Look at my pi...

Re: Freeze clips (rather than the entire track)

...and before you say "it's not freeze, it's bounce/rendering" (which is true) there are at least two ways I can save the original clip for later: 1) I can move it - before bouncing - to clip launcher: https://i.imgur.com/262pQF1l.png 2) I can group the track and bouce-in-place the time selection on...

Yes, I can read and it works. In below screenshot, I've FM-4 instrument with 5 effects embedded into it (5 rectangles in FX slot on the right-hand side of the FM-4) and 1 effect - Distortion - outside of FM-4: https://i.imgur.com/x5GmNghl.png When I bounced the 2nd clip in place, Bitwig generated au...

Re: Freeze clips (rather than the entire track)

Combining frozen and unfrozen parts on the same arrangement track would be problematic because of the conflicts between deactivated and activated effect plugins (the state of something being frozen vs. the state of the chain being calculated in realtime). An alternative, additional "quick render on...

Re: Suite isn't required for Max for Live?

Well, the difference between Standard + M4L and Suite is EUR100, which I think is more than worth it for +8 instruments, +15 effects, +60Gb of samples?
Unless obviously you have all of this covered by 3rd party VSTs and sample packs, in which case it makes sense to save EUR100 :)

Re: Ableton 10 about to purchase

Get Live 10 Suite. You would probably be fine with Standard, but for the price of Standard + single 3rd party VST (that you'll eventually want), in Suite you'll get a lot of additional quality synths (+8), effects (+14), sample & preset packs (+60Gb) and MaxForLive environment and those things shoul...

Does Push2 consume CPU/GPU resources for the display?

Obviously Push2 adds a little overhead processing like any other MIDI controller to send and interpret data back & forth between it and the computer. But I was wondering about the screen - are there any chips inside Push2 that take care of rendering the images, or is it all done by the computer itse...

Re: MIDI-mapping encoders in Session mode

If all you want to do is launch clips and control parameters, then get an APC mini/launch pad and a launch control XL. Push is great for sequencing, playing instruments (can take some getting used too, maybe not great) and doing fine adjustments/edits on selected tracks. No, I plan to take full adv...

Re: MIDI-mapping encoders in Session mode

Create a rack that has mappings to all those parameters. Then ‘Lock’ the Push controls to that rack device. This will probably require ClyphX since it requires macros mapped to parameters of other channels. In this case I’d have one rack per channel, each rack has that channel’s parameters assigned...
