Re: AKAI APC Key 25 - Control Script - Launch 8 clips on 5 track

Thank you. Will it work with Ableton 10? Does the ableton functionality of apc match lauchkey with this?

modular subtractive synth using ableton

When adding a couple of synths to one midi line you are using additive synthesis. How about subtracting the wave of some of the synths? I think I heard of utility having such functionality. Can you think of a way to achieve that with ableton?

ableton 10 and push 1?

Hi

These two are not showing much in the forum. Push 1 users, what is your experience of ableton 10 functionality? Apart from the obvious, such as the lack of curves, is push 1 supported adequately? Are there any show stoppers or other reasons why you would consider moving to push 2?

Thanks

Re: Ableton 10 suggestions

I would like ableton not to lose focus of where I was on the clip matrix when I click on the master track - and in a number of other occasions, both vertically and horizontally. Also, to restore the focus upon reopening track. Other than that, if a hovering little map appeared as you grabbed the sid...

get back to effect starting settings outside clips with auto

Hi I thought it was a standard feature of ableton some time ago and have not been relying on it in a while, so here it is. If you set the effect, say eq8 to be off and some clips use automation to turn it on, I thought the effect would get back to its unautomated settings, so to speak when getting o...

Loopered loops to not click

Hi Have you noticed that loops recorded with looper may play seamlessly when still in looper but click at the end/beginning when dragged to a cell? One method that works with that is to record twice as much as you need, halve the loop length and either use silent moment for restart point or simply d...

Looper in-sync recording as triggered by Push

Hi

When adapting Stray's fantastic ClyphX script to mouseless abletoning I found out that record triggering is not done in sync. Stray has confirmed this to be a known problem with ableton.

How is it dealt with in push operation? Is there a workaround?

Re: Prevent Live to cut notes and sound when hitting Stop ?

Hi

I have tried to replicate the problem but could not on windows.

As you stop playback, no sound gets cut - if that is what you meant.

OT, there was a Roland MC808 failure drumbox which would cut everything even upon scene change :D

get rid of refocus upon clicking the master track

I would hope that in a near version Live stops moving focus to the rightmost tracks when you click on master track. Not only disturbing when producing, but also when performing, especially if you want to know what is happening in the leftmost tracks. Besides, when the project nears the maximum cpu, ...

Advanced power management in Windows 7 - amazing improvement

By chance, I found yesterday something which I think I have never seen among the tips on audio computer tweaking for performance. What it does is it makes ableton stability rock solid - cpu usage simply does not fluctuate. Here is how you do it: 1. press windows key and type 'edit power option' 2. c...

Marking of automated effects

I do not know about you guys but the projects I am in the middle of are cluttered with switched off effects waiting to be (re)used. Now that automation can be done per-clip (BTW a killer function), I tend to get confused which of utilitys and eq eights and freq shifters are left on a track because I...

Loop handling improvements

Could looper be compensate for plugins delay fully? Especially with complex, heavily delayed loops it would save you the need of nudging the start marker. It is much better than it used to be, I guess, but with heavy processing you may end up having to beat sync loops. As an option, cropping a loop ...

A way to undo the inevitable

When triggering a scene during a performance, I think it should be possible to undo this choice instantly with no consequences at all. The fraction of a second you realise you have triggered change of scene to a wrong one or simply not in the right moment, AFAIK, what you can do as an emergency is c...

sophisticated drag from looper

Once a loop gets recorded, dragging the clip to empty space marked as "drop files and devices here should create a track automatically.
