Re: Exporting Audio doesnt sound right

Are people suggesting that you render your wave at 32bits rather than 24, and use an audio editor to do the dithering, even though ableton supports pow-r II dithering?

Re: Essential Instruments 2 collection-same as with liveSuite7?

Yes, this issue definitely needs clarification. I was really expecting the 8 suite to come with EIC 3!

Re: Ableton 8 suite factory content-better then suite 7?worthIt?

Let's put it this way...content for the Library has been sub-par till L8. I didn't get the L7 suite because I didn't understand how powerful it was. With L8, I completely get why you would want the suite, and that's because they showed off the power with a fantastic soundset. I'm loving the texture...

Essential Instruments 2 collection-same as with liveSuite7?

Am I missing something or is the essential instruments 2 collection that I see advertised with live 8 suite the same collection that came with live 7 suite?

If I upgrade to 8 suite am I only really getting collision and latin percussion as add ons?

Re: Ableton 8 suite factory content-better then suite 7?worthIt?

I mean, logic's set of instruments, both synthesized and sampled, represent a very rich sounding collection of every imaginable organic instrument, and the synthesized sounds are very full, deep, and rich as well. When I got the live 7 suite all the instrument patches and sampled instruments sounded...

Ableton 8 suite factory content-better then suite 7?worthIt?

Hi, I have a quick question for users of live 7 suite who have upgraded to live 8 suite. How is this 48 gigs of factory content? I was extremely underwhelmed by the live suite 7 factory content. The drum machines and such were helpful but all the samples and instruments sounded tin'y and weak to me....

Re: Change Overall Volume after volume automation?

Question on the group track solution. Say you've got a few channels in a group, and together they are overdriving the group channel/fader. I'm assuming that even if you lower the group fader the summing bus for the group is still overloading, i.e. you should still lower the volumes on the individual...

Bump. Can anyone tell me if the group channel has a summing bus that can be overloaded?

Re: which SOFT SYNTH should i get next?

I agree about the arturia. The CS-80V and the Arp2600 are my favorite go to synths when looking for real analogue sounding warmth or unusual sounds. Definitely not to be overlooked.

Question about grouping tracks & volume in Ableton 8

I've yet to upgrade to ableton 8 but will probably do so in the next week or two. I'm really looking forward to grouping tracks for volume adjustments. My question is twofold. First off, when you group tracks I understand that you get a group volume control which can raise or lower all of the channe...

Re: Ryoichi Kurokawa ?

I have a friend who does very similar work. He uses just about every tool imaginable, but when it comes to his integrated audio/visual work he uses several max patches routed together controlling a couple of jitter patches (the max video object set). It's the perfect way to sync many parameters of ...

Re: Waiting for Max for live..

Honestly I'm sure they will just add a separate max4live forum here and other places, and yes, many users will be whining and crying, but people can just set strict mod options of no specific detailed max4live questions in the other forums. Honestly, some simple ideas can be executed in max by someo...
