Re: Microtonic or Drumaxx and Drumracks ???

This tip might help... http://www.heatercore.net/2010/05/external-instruments-internally.html I used a variation of this to create a drum rack with two Microtonics hosted in it to give me a full 16 pads of sounds. I then programmed the next 16 pads on the drum rack to work as track on/off toggles so...

Re: Live will not work/ Laptop crash

Just an idea, but I assume you've replaced the live version in those two folder locations to 8.1.3 and also replaced username with your usual windows username. e.g. For me (ScarKord) it would be:- C:\Documents and Settings\ScarKord\Application Data\Ableton\Live 8.1.3\preferences\preferences.cfg and ...

Re: Making my own Library

I normally create a new project folder, then save my presets / drum racks etc. by dragging them into it. Has the advantage of saving any samples you use in that project folder rather than in the Ableton library. Should you ever need to reinstall you OS or move to a new machine, you can be sure all y...

Re: Question regarding drumrack

Taken from Jon Margulies excellent 365 Ableton tips website... http://www.heatercore.net/2010/02/sensitive-drum-racks.html To get a customized Simpler to appear when dropping samples into a Drum Rack, you'll need to use a little drag and drop. First, open Live's file browser and display the Live Lib...

Re: APC40 controling Drum Rack?

Is it possible to control the pads in Drum Rack with the pads on the APC40P? They just keep controlling the clips when I select Drum Rack... Unfortunately not. The APC20 has a special 'Notes Mode' that can be used to play instruments (and I'm guessing, drum racks) but this isn't implemented on the ...

Re: BOZAK Isolator / Real Dope 3300 rack

yeah I just build one based on your screenshots and the dial at 63 = -14.5 db - doh! Hi Flippo, not sure why my adg file didn't work for you? (I'm running 8.1.3 on windows 7 by the way). Anyway, my patch uses a Utility on one of the EQ3's for each range (e.g. Low 1, Mid 1 and Treble 1), to boost by...

Re: BOZAK Isolator / Real Dope 3300 rack

Interesting topic - must admit I hadn't come across the Bozak before but can see the logic in a unit which has the 0db point at the centre of the dial. Anyway, having read flippo's suggestions, I've created an effect rack which I think does what you are after... http://www.scarkord.com/ableton/isola...

Re: Anyone upgrading their Soniccouture Live packs?

I've just upgraded Snythi and Pan Drum - haven't had a chance to check them out as yet (just downloading now) but you will also qualify for one of their exclusive sound packs with each upgrade. As a result, I've just got Devilfish and Tube Drum for free :) http://www.soniccouture.com/en/free-stuff/ ...

Re: Apc40 and 20 in combination mode, Track Control??

Jesse, since you brought up using multiple apc40's, does the device control become redundant, because you can only have one blue hand/track selected or can you lock each apc40's device control to a device or instrument? I would assume that both APC40's device controls would be linked to whichever t...

Re: Ok seriously, APC40 or Launchpad?

I went for both. The APC40 is what I use for 'control' and clip launching etc. Love the dedicated track mutes, record buttons, faders and encoders. Whereas the Launchpad is used primarily in User Mode 1 to control drum-racks (lot's of nice LED feedback to visualise what's happening with a given beat...
