If you are planning to DJ with Live, I'd highly recommend the FaderFox Live DJ module - these controllers are fantastic.

Re: !

Impulse has, what, 20 controls per slot? But amazingly, I never felt limited by it. The envelope is a bit hidden at fist, but you can roughly map a/d/s/r to start/trans/stretch/decay the only thing with impulse is - PLEASE correct me if i'm wrong, i'd love to know! - you can't microtune the drum sa...

Re: The best way to deal with musical phrases?

Is there a more direct way to trigger these kajillion phrases with correct transposition and tempo matching? An approach more conductive to experimenting with them on the fly? Thanks for all helpful suggestions in advance Well, if you think about it, let's say you can play at the outside max 5 hour...

How many stereo pairs do you run at once? I have my Live Library on an external firewire disk so that it doesn't crap its pants when the computer spontaneously decides to it's time to reorganize the hard drive, so I don't notice it as much. However, I have certainly had the feeling that things have ...

Those audio routes activate themselves when you have nested racks. If you highlight two of your drum tracks, then right-click->group those tracks will be put in their own drum rack, inside of your original drum rack. (I know it sound creepy, but it's not) Then you can create a return track in the or...

3-Channel mixer Using a 3-cahnnel mixer along with the u46SE gives you the option of using all 3-channels as channels in Live. ... What you need to aim for is flexibility. Thanks for the +1 so I'll send it right back! Good point on the Mixer, I had assumed he was going to do that in software. Tappy...

Well, if you want the song to pick up playing from the same place again after stopping and starting it, you'd have to either trigger a second loop (extremely tricky!) or stop transport. And I cannot recommend stopping transport during a live show ever. The other option would be trimming the signal u...

I can't help you with any real experience, I don't allow my Mac to get that close to PC's if it can be helped, but googling "midi network driver windows" brings a metric shitton of stuff. I sure something will work. Maybe someone else can tell you more, but most people tend to run their word clock o...

he hacks so far (including my own) have some limitations, normally only allowing 1 bar at aa time. Do you mean synth/bass loops? I've been trying to avoid that as well, i wrote a long lead line that ended up way too jazzy over the weekend but mostly i've been making massive patches that generate at...

Re: DJ Mixer / Audio interface for Live

Hi all, Any recommendations would be very much appreciated, so thanks in advance. Simon I would highly recommend that you stay away from all in one solutions. First the whole is often less than the sum of the pieces, and then they're also married together You can't take the controller along to some...

Funny. Every track I've ever written, somebody tells me my snare is too loud. Guess I overestimate the importance of the backbeat. How old are you? Were you a teenager when the Police were big? If so, you're fully excused. Have a listen to Ghost in the Machine, that snare is the most in-your-face e...

Re: !

yeah, drag the samples out and dump them into battery. if there's one plugin in the world that simply has no competition, it's battery. Hmm, it's the opposite with me. I used to be a huge Battery fan until Drum Racks came out. Imho there is no competition when it comes to integration to create beat...

ah, now i understand. you already have a touchscreen. I thought by "touch screen software interface" you meant you were looking for a hardware interface.

I think you might enjoy supercollider.

@Three man you are on it. wish you were in the Bay Area. I'm having a love/hate relationship with Drumracks at the moment. I love the individual effects chains for each cell or subrack for live dubbing. But the microscopic nature of the interface freaks with my workflow too. Well, there are a coupl...
