Re: Newbie Where do i start???

Some really great, in-depth tutorials on YouTube as well, of course. Ableton has the benefit of having a relative ton of resources online from the community in comparison to some other DAWs.

Re: Leveling Instrument Volume from a Recorded Live Set

If it was all recorded down to a single audio track with clipping/unbalanced levels/etc..., there's not much you can do to remove that. Unfortunately, you'll just have to doctor it up as best you can. Doing a pre-check on your peak levels and maybe throwing on a limiter or compressor in case of surp...

Did you read through this:

Maybe not the most helpful advice, but I thought I'd throw it up just in case.

Re: Record with backing track.

Odd. I've tried to recreate the issue, but can't seem to stumble upon it. If your playback/recording is occurring in arrangement view, the track monitors are set to Auto, and you have the track armed/set to the correct input, it should work.

Re: Record with backing track.

Does the audio that you've imported play when not recording? Are you working in Session or Arrangement view?

Re: Ableton midi Keyboard controller like Push

Although a key-based version would be interesting, if you already have Push, why not just buy a more basic keyboard controller to pair it with? Kontrol seems like overkill unless you're using a lot of NI stuff and want their integration.

Re: Band Splitting for different FX on different bands

yes, you should have the slighty overlapping, otherwise you'll get some weird filtering stuff going on. As far as the slope, do it to taste - there are no set rules. I've always been confused about how much one should allow frequencies to bleed over when you are splitting sounds like this. I often ...

Re: Band Splitting for different FX on different bands

I'd just use an EQ/filter to split up the frequencies rather than the multiband dynamics device. Also, yes, you should have the slighty overlapping, otherwise you'll get some weird filtering stuff going on. As far as the slope, do it to taste - there are no set rules.

Re: Step Sequencer

Fair enough. You could probably find a slightly used, but still mint Push 2 for not much more than a new LP Pro + $100. You could also save by purchasing a secondhand Ableton license to allow for some more money for a controller. A Push 1 is also an affordable option. But anyhow, if you’re only look...
