Is there a MIDI content displaying device in M4L?

Hello, I was wondering if there's a M4L device I can monitor what MIDI is coming into a track, i.e. Note on/off, velocity, channels, CC#s and values, sysex, etc. I think you can buy an app that monitors MIDI ports but if there's a max for live device it's probably easier and maybe free! :) I'm curre...

Apc40 step sequencer

I remember lots of people talking about running the apc40 as a step sequencer with m4l with live 8. Just thought since I have suite 9 I now have m4l. What's the latest? Got any links to any m4l devices?

Re: Push and crazy time signatures

You can use triplets, with 6/8 pads used per row. Just re-reading this: do you mean it does 6x 8th beats per row, starting the new bar on a new line each time (i.e. 2 spare buttons on the end of each row)? If you do 16th notes in 6/8 does it do the 12 notes as 6 per row (with 2 spare pads per row),...

Re: Push and crazy time signatures

Ah-ha, here ya go, my "Diplodocus Jive" in 29/8! Another W.I.P., but it's undeniably wonky-funk: https://soundcloud.com/elviswhistlehoof/diplodocus-jive Gotta throw in that extra quaver or a drummer might get complacent and fall asleep just playing in 7/8 constantly. :D Some would say too much acid....

Re: Push and crazy time signatures

Btw, do you have a soundcloud example or anything? I'm curious how annoying it sounds :p Don't have any 29/8 uploaded at the moment, but as an example the verse and guitar solo of this is programmed 21/8 (3x 5/8, with 6/8 every 4th bar). Main riff is good old fashioned 6/8. I do the changes with ti...

Push and crazy time signatures

Hello! I'm thinking of buying a push. Can someone explain how the step sequencer part works with things other than 4/4 (video would be great if you're bored). Does 6/8 use 6 per row? Or 6 then 2, plus 4 on the next line, another 4, and the 5th/6th on the next line etc. How about 7/8 or 5/4 (if not t...

Grooves!

Whenever I seem to program stuff and it's funky, but missing something I can never find an ableton groove that makes it any better. What's wrong. Do I need to program the thing incredibly straight and dull and not what's in my head, then apply grooves, or are there certain grooves that seem to make ...

Re: Remember the Bloody Audio Interface!

I assume you're not a laptop user then who uses a mixture of internal half the time or has a wire to the Hi-Fi for general sound, or plugs into an external Firewire one when it's time to make music or listen to tunes on the big speakers? If I only ever opened Live when connected to the MOTU I might ...

Remember the Bloody Audio Interface!

For the love of god... can't we have an update that remembers I want my FW MOTU 828mk3 if it's connected, else give me the internal sound card. I never want NO audio, it's a music app, and I spend half my time when I open Live having to select either the internal audio or the MOTU! I know it's only ...

Re: Best placement of acoustic treatment???

Sit in your optimum listening position and place foam at all mirror points between your head and the speakers. The idea is to have the foam at all first reflection points. Both side walls should take priority, then the wall behind your head and the ceiling. If you have enough, doing the wall behind...

Re: Best placement of acoustic treatment???

You've got all this...in your dining room? :x There's no space for it anywhere else! It's not much of a dining room, the table is in the kitchen, so it has a sofa in there too and is more of a party lab than dining room. There's currently an electronic drum kit in there too as I got fed up with tha...
