Re: Why I use Ableton Live (even though I hate it)

We don't know if he bought Live, but he did buy www.abletoniseasy.com.

This was a good tid-bit:

Re: Currently on the list :

To get HyperControl working with Pro Tools 7, Reason, Logic, and Cubase, you must install a HyperControl personality file specific for those programs. Pro Tools 8, Live 7.0.15, & Live 8 have the support built-in. Source: http://forums.m-audio.com/showthread.php?t=8581 This is the only place I've se...

Re: Currently on the list :

I've been looking at 49 key controllers too (time to kick the Ozonic through the hole in the Ozone). To my surprise, the one that is the most appealing so far is the Axiom Pro 49. It auto maps to Live 7 + 8, supposedly.

Re: Currently on the list :

http://www.rme-audio.de/en_products_fireface_uc.php Well lookit that. Huh. Hmmm. So, why do you want this one over the Fireface 400, 3dot? To free up your firewire port? Does the UC seem more future-proof? Say you were running 16 microphones into it recording at 48kHz 24-bit - do you think the UC w...

Fireface USB? For reals? You mean the Fireface 400. Otherwise it should be called the Universalface, which is just goofy.

Re: Which LIVE mixer ?

Here's a good review on the DDM4000 from the hero of the Serato forums, Konix: http://www.prodjforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6438 The last main feature of the DDM4000 is it's MIDI capabilities. I'm not super big on MIDI, but I have it set up to control Serato ScratchLIVE, and works quite well. I...

Re: Which LIVE mixer ?

I need to buy a mixer which will work as a control surface and analog mixer as well (for live sessions). I see there are few options but... the ones I like are to expensive (i.e. DIGIDESIGN). I was thinking about KORG Zero miver/control surface, but I'm wondering what are the ratings and your opini...

Re: Routing question...can't get me head round it.

I cannot go straight into the EQ and Compressor if i don't have a pre-amp before them in the chain, is that right? Correct. The mic needs a preamp. If so then I am forced to go into the motu and into Live, out again through the outboard gear and back in again, is that right? Correct. This can be do...

Re: MAC BOOK ALU OR MACBOOK PRO13"

Did the fact that the MacBook Aluminum got discontinued this week make the decision any easier?

Yes you can use your laptop to make it work correctly.

Just think about music. Don't think about computers.

Re: NEW MACBOOK PRO... What we've all been waiting for!

Agreed. It'd be disgustingly sick if it had an EC. But oh well. I can't stop picturing one on my desk beside the 24" LCD display. I'm going glass and not looking back.

Re: NEW MACBOOK PRO... What we've all been waiting for!

Not to say I approve of the ommision of the Express card, especially on the 15", but the SD slot is better than nothing. You can use it to make back ups of your most important files. It will be easier than using an optical disc or keychain flash drives. 8GB cards are really cheap: http://www.bhphot...
