nord G2 demo

Anyone tried the Nord G2 demo ... I think it sounds awsome - but then I'm not really a synth player ( but I know what I like ) You can save patches even in the demo version. It's only monophonic - but it looks like a great way to leanrn about modular synthesis. Any thoughts on sound quality - compar...

I was messing around with a similar idea using Battery - had a lot of fun Check out http://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14299&highlight=drum+pattern Using stylus rmx at the moment - some fun to be had there too, especially when you assign all the chaos controls to midi controllers as shown ...

Yes ... excellent topic - I'm very curious

I use loads of different templates - and they are constantly in a state of flux as I discover new ways of doing things ( and as I aquire new hardware / software ). But, for what it's worth - this is a genaral purpose set up which I've been using recently Live running on the Toshiba laptop - external...

Midi control of Reaktor.

I've been checking this out and I just want to make sure that there is no simple solution that I have missed. 1. I can only assign midi controllers to the parameters that appear in the effects Live window ( limited to 128 parameters I understand ) 2. Reaktors midi learn function does not seem to wor...

mlan .... Yamaha 01X / Motif

With the release of Mac. OS. 10.3.7 and it's improved support for mlan is anyone considering / excited about the 01X or the Motif ? My ears pricked up when it first came out .... but there were many problems in reality with poor mlan performance and high cpu usage. Maybe it's worth considering again...

Semi - weighted midi controller keyboards ?

Do the Novation Remote 49 and 61 actually exist ? I really need a new midi controller keyboard and 2 or 3 octave keyboards are just not enough. There is no reference to them on the Novation website - but Digital Village have them for sale. I'll phone them tomorrow. Can anyone recommend a good 49 or ...

The method I'm describing goes one step further than that outlined by Jethrosipho. All the song files you create are actively linked to the original sounds folder - so as you regularly" save as self contained" in any of the song files you are working in ( which is the safest way of working ) - all t...

yes

Saving the song self contained saves the audio files into the original sounds folder - so even if the songs use different sound files they are all saved in one folder. This might not always be desirable - but it does work really well if the songs all have the same bpm ( and more so if they are all i...

Different strokes ....

You can play Simper with the computer keyboard, midi keyboard or from a midi clip. It's very easy to create your own midi clips and then draw envelopes to modulate Simplers parameters in real time. Assign the Simpler controls to a midi controller and you are away. One neat trick is to create a longe...

I take it from the replies so far that there isn't a streamlined way to save all Simpler wav files in one folder. All I can think of doing is creating a blank song with one instance of Simpler - Load simpler patches one at a time and keep saving self contained - You should end up with one folder the...

warning ....

i don't know what happens to the clip properties of a sound file if is referrenced by different song files. Settings for one song might get overwritten if clip properties were changed and then saved for a later song.

Need to experiment ............
