Re: Akai APC 40 help please!!!

Will update when I have a chance. i just got a response from akai. no epiphanies just yet, pretty basic troub...

Re: Akai APC 40 help please!!!

Same thing with Axiom just now. But again, can go "update driver" for it and specify that it's not a "usb audio device" but the Axiom.

Re: Akai APC 40 help please!!!

Also. Just removed all devices from dev manager and re-added the APC 40 first. No love there, but of note is that when I then added the PadKONTROL, I got the same thing, "USB Audio device". However, right clicking it, going to "update driver" and then manually selecting it gets you to the below dial...

Re: Akai APC 40 help please!!!

Here's what the install process looks like. In Dev Manager (background window) it first sees it as the Akai APC 40 as it should. Then the Found New Hardware Wizard (foreground), you'll note, says USB Audio Device. Manual (from a list or specific) selection ends up at the same spot, no way to choose ...

Re: A tip on APC40 setup with USB Audio Device.

Live 8. USB Audio Device isn't listed in Live, only in Win Device Manager. TekMonkee, What version of Live? I think you need 7.0.15 or higher, although the APC40 installation disk uses 7.0.13. On its opening screen it says it is a special version for use with the APC20. But, I had the same problems ...

Re: A tip on APC40 setup with USB Audio Device.

Same thing here, just got the APC40 and Windows wants to call it a USB Audio Device. It first recognizes it as an APC40, then changes over to USB Audio Device. Deleting/re-adding from Dev Manager, restarting the machine, restarting live, re-setting all of the MIDI/Sync devices, no love. There's no i...

Just wish there were more than the 2/3 meager vocals they included.

Re: What did you get?

Is there pricing on upgrading from Live 8 to Live 8 suite? Debating on which to buy at the moment, but the only things that really appeal to me (so far) kinda have me leaning towards just Live 8 vs. the whole suite. Should I change my mind later though . . .

Re: The secret benefits of mixing in mono

what if you panned one channel hard left or right in your mixer, software or otherwise, with a mono plugin on? isn't that somewhat similar to a center channel then? the mono plugin blends left + right and then it would just be sending two mono channels to two speakers when centered . . . right?

Re: The secret benefits of mixing in mono

Ok, so I'll ask the dumb question . . . Now when I say mono, let's be very clear. I'm not just talking about using a mono plugin and running it through both of your speakers. I'm talking about turning off one of your speakers and running your mono signal to just one speaker. Preferably you would hav...
