Humans evolved to control their world using depth perception to hunt prey in 3d, First, you won't get 3D using both eyes looking at one display. That takes real binocular vision, with each eye receiving a different image which, when analyzed for parallax and combined into a single perceptual field,...

I agree with those who don't care for display frou-frou. Transparent caption bars and window borders? Hm, that's useful. =9_9= Hope it can be set for the "retro" look of Win9x, or at least no silly transparency. And the grass wallpaper is out of focus. O_:-} Finally, from one of the screenshots: "li...

Re: Props forums = a good thing

Take a lood at the Propellerheads Reason forum and you will see an environment with nothing but trolls. I agree with most of what's been said in this thread (and in your post, cmcg37)... but this simply ain't so. Sure, jerks wander in now and then looking for trouble. There are warez luzers looking...

I'm very impressed with some of the distorted guitar sounds AAS String Studio can make. It's a physical modelling synth that emulates many kinds of bowed, plucked, and hammered string instruments. Made by the people who created the legendary Tassman modular, Lounge Lizard EP, and Ultra Analog so you...

:-} Well, I exaggerated. Took months to learn to use Melodyne well, and I'm still not that good. But the results can be breathtaking, even for a hack like me. In a real musician's paws it's a power tool like no other I've seen. They have a 30-day demo with great tutorials, you might try that out if ...

cre8 owner here. Melodyne's good for a lot more than just tweaking pitch. I've used it to turn vocalized notes into MIDI sequences with pitch bends, which I then fed into AAS String Studio playing a fiddle patch. Oy! Instant klezmer! *dances*

Melodyne is the canine's castanets. Love it.

That's what I'm talkin' about! Add rex file slicing capabilities and Live would be my ideal app.! Have you tried FXpansion/Devine Machine's new GURU beat box? It slices, it dices, it makes mountains of cole slaw out of any beat! Comes with a generous helping of content (loops to slice, individual d...

What ishimaru said. Fix it before it gets worse -- it'll cost less, be stronger, and you'll almost certainly make better music when not in pain.

Good luck! Hope the damage is easily repaired.

Gotta go with Orbit. Otherwise everyone would sell Live to a friend, then buy it back and get Live 5 free. :-D

Now, if the seller never activated Live 4, that might qualify. You'd most likely want to talk to the Abletons about that.

The new concentric circle thing for the logo is tight though. You should have put them perfectly concentric though, instead of having them smushed to the side like that. Ah, but they're not circles, nor ellipses even. :-) They're a bit flattened on the left. The arrangement is quite precise, I thin...
