Does the Push2 offer control over Split Stereo Pan (two knobs per track)
or does it only work with the default Pan control (one knob per track)
?
Thanks very much!

Re: Audio interface conundrum

what kind of cables are you using to connect your synths? if you are using TRS (balanced) cables and the synth outputs are unbalanced (most likely), then that can cause level loss. also, guitar pedals are not made to handle line level signals. https://www.soundonsound.com/sound-advice/q-there-better...

Re: How to make a realistic guitar sound using MIDI?

life is too short!

probably the best sample-based guitars are the MusicLab stuff:

Re: Going Native...

i would hazard a guess that most people have far more tools than they have expertise in using them. the software/hardware music industry is constantly waving shiny new things in our faces. funnily enough, often the shiny new things are old things with shiny new faces. however, until you are really f...

Re: Ableton 10 live, best vocal settings/effects

Re: Ableton 10 live, best vocal settings/effects

I recorded a short clip in a loop, to let you know how it sounds. Sounds weird, right? https://instaud.io/3pVz so what exactly is your "pretty good mic"? and where/how are you recording? the mic, mic placement, mic technique and the room are all very important. it's a bit hard to tell as you've dro...
