Tips for making tasty dub drums?

How do you folks make your nice dub dance drums (a la the more dub style Shpongle/Ott/Entheogen/Leftfield/etc)? Things like the odd snares that get extra delay/verb to add the trippyness: Do you automate the whole track or drum hit reverb/delay after for the whole thing with automation? Manually edi...

Re: Should i perform Ableton live with mp3 Stems files or wav.

does the mp3 file affect the cpu usesage yes or no No, because as Mr Glen says it decodes them and puts them in the cache folder. They're still WAVs made from MP3s so just use the original full quality WAVs: no HDD space wasted and better quality audio with exactly the same overhead. Importing WAVs...

Re: Why no cue sound/selection?

Ah ha! My default MIDI track was set to MIDI channel 1. Every new push track created from push was therefore also set to receive all inputs on midi channel 1 only too, and Push's notes aren't on MIDI channel 1. Set it to All Channels and now everything is working fine. I saved my default MIDI track ...

Doesn't work playing any notes/recording in instruments as well as drum racks in anything other than step sequencer. :(

FIXED: Why no cue sound/selection?

Hello! Got a new push today and I seem to be having something not described in the "Learning Push" videos or manual. All of those say you press the note in the step sequencer 4x4 pad, it's selected and you hear it every time you hit it. If you want to select without hearing it you press shift and pr...

Mapping Prog Change to Rack's Chain Selector

I can't seem to get program change messages to control my instrument rack's chain selector. Any ideas? Going to MIDI mapping mode and pressing the button maps "1/PB". Then in usage nothing happens. My MIDI monitor shows the Program changes going up and down as I increment/decrement it. Live obviousl...

Re: How do I control other instruments on/off, racks or channel?

As per usual I look at something for ages, finally post to a forum, then find something useful straight after. *facepalm* I'm off to read a load of bits about the Live API and max live.object.

Any general pointers on the above still very much appreciated though...

How do I control other instruments on/off, racks or channel?

I'm stuck! I'm trying to make a device that takes some controller program change messages, then chooses an instrument based on the current value. I've worked out how to get the MIDI messages in, I've split it so I now have a Max midi box with the current program, but now I'm not sure what to do. I s...

Toggle hi/low vs momentary midi CC messages.

I'm trying to assign a controller I know very little about to turn track mute on & off. When I put in MIDI learn mode it seems to assign, but the button only then will turn it off, never on again. Anyone else seen this? Is it they way it sends the message (maybe toggle vs momentary)? Can I change sw...

I'll have a go with the M4L ones, but out of interest, which free app do you use? Might check that our too.
