Anyone Read the Ableton Live Book by Dave Hill/Chad Carrier?

Just wondering whether this is something worth buying. I see that these guys are responsible for some of the tutorials on the tutorials page here so judging by those I guess they really know their stuff. Is this book covering the functionality in v 4? If anyone has the book or has read it and can of...

Theres a tutorial on this very subject http://www.ableton.com/index.php?main=tutorials&sub=tips0404 It can be as easy as just warping your tracks and using 2 channels and a crossfader but with a bit of imagination you can get really creative with your mixing in a way thats impossible on a standard t...

I'm definitely a late person and not good in the mornings. night time is definitely the most peaceful time when you can get left alone, but the temptation to substances is far greater.... Too right mate! This is definitely the reason why night is better for my work patterns. The only thing is I dont...

I like the album very much. Theres a good range of tunes on there and it flows together nicely. The mixes of spooky, lostep and ulrich schnauss are top drawer. If I could level a criticism at it, it would be on the selection of the Felix Da Housecat track. Personally I think this track is out of pla...

Hey Man


I like it, particularly the bassline, it keeps you hooked in.
I was tapping my toes here in the office

Personally I think the voice samples could be a bit brighter but on the whole its a tidy track

well done

Warping - Is it only me who is having trouble?

Hi All I'm still really struggling to warp my tracks effectively in Live. I've read all the posts/tutorials/manual sections and for some reason I am not getting it. I know it must be something I'm doing wrong but I'm just wondering what - as I know theres people here who can warp their tracks in min...

This one quite good

I found this guide particluarly useful

http://www.kwookyworld.com/rsg2mt/rsg2mt.pdf

Explains everything succinctly and has some useful diagrams too.

Remembered though, these rules are guidelines and its possible to break them....

hey all good to hear about people with DREAM setups. Unfortunately, for me at the moment the dream setup is still a dream. Been working overtime and carefully reading reviews of various products and biding my time whilst watching the prices. I have been lusting after a load of new equipment for ages...

The manual and the tutorial files are particularly helpful for getting to grips with the basics of live. Take some time to go through these, it might be a drag to begin with but once you've been through them you will be well on the way up the learning curve. They give you a good grounding and dont r...

Thanks for that ewistrand, tried disabling my anti-virus and have nothing else running in the background. Anyone got any ideas on what I need to tweak to get a decent sound out of live 4. Surely if I can use Live 3 without problems then I can use live 4. I know my soundcard is pants but like I say i...

I've been using a bog standard SB Live card up until now but have recently ordered the M-Audio FW Audiophile. Looking forward to getting my hands on it! Mind you its going to be pretty useless with Live 4 given the current situation I have. I dont understand why my machine cant handle live 4 when li...

Live 4 struggling on my machine

Hi There I recently upgraded to Live 4 as the extras enticed me, particular the midi stuff. I have installed it OK but its running exceptionally slow. If I load 1 sample into a track it plays really slow with crackles and pops. I have none of my VSTs installed yet! I have tried adjusting the latency...
