Re: List of Ableton Instant Mapping CC#'s and controlled param ?

There are no default mappings or live as far as I know. For example the makie control script uses pitch pend messages for the volume faders, remote sl uses midi CCs, the button "faders" on the launchpad's mixer page use note messages. Every one of the supported controller has its own python script a...

Re: DRUM MACHINE LIKE REASON

There's two ways. The first one uses batteries internal routing and Live's "External Instrument". This leaves you with full control over the sound within battery, but limits you to 16 stereo or 32 mono outputs) from battery. First you go to each cell and select which output you want that cell to sen...

Re: can I have deep access in drum rack presets ?

Even the 808 kit uses operator. The original sampled 808 kit comes with the drum machines live pack. The simpler included in live is actually the sampler with fewer controls. So one can create a patch with the sampler and then right click and select "sampler > simpler" so anyone can use it. Those ar...

Re: can I have deep access in drum rack presets ?

Quite a few of the drum rack presets in the library use instrument racks containing the operator synth. Like with the other instrument racks you'll only be able to unfold them to access controls beyond the macros if you own the instruments inside.

Re: auto fade in / fade out on clips...

Set "create fades on clip edges" in the record/warp/launch tab to off.

But this only changes the default behavior when you drag in a new audio file. Any fades on clips you allready have will still need to be removed manually.

I'm writing from my phone at the moment so I can't check right now, but you should be able to turn this off in the preferences.

Re: How to get rid of the noise floor?

You could freeze the track, then the instrument + the noise will be rendered and only sound when the track is actually playing.

Re: Ableton Live pitch-shifting

No, the frequency shifter does not pitch shift. Pitch shifting multiplies the frequency, while the frequency shifter adds to the frequency, resulting in a very different sound. If you want to pitch shift a sample without warping you can either just use an audio clip's transpose knob while leaving wa...

Re: Different drum rack settings for each scene

you could make an instrument rack containing all your drum racks and then either map the chain selector to a controller, or draw a clip envelope for it.

Re: Problems with impulse.

What i'm asking is, Can I drag a kick from the browser to impulse? Or is it designed for slices only You can only load audio samples into impulse. The drum rack in Live's library all contain either multi-sample sampler presets, or the operator synth. If you want to get the sounds into impulse, you'...

Wrong filter settings in "Drum Machines" Single hit presets

Haven't jet gone through all of them, but it seems that many of the single hit presets from the Drum Machines Live Pack have the wrong filter settings. eg: In the preset "Kit-909 Classic" the macro for "Cymbals Tone" is mapped to the filter on/off switch and the frequency 63.7Hz min - 911Hz Max (on ...

Re: Problems with impulse.

The Drum Rack presets are a drum rack containing simplers (or other instruments eg. operators) on the different pads. They have nothing to to with impulse, just drag the rack onto an empty midi track.

We haven't yet officially released the beta - there'll be an announcement and a changelog soon. Nearly a week passed since the beta has been available for download, but still not "officially released"? Is this only due to the release notes having to be written, or is this beta still going to be ada...

Re: Beginner Q re. Drum Programming methods?

Also, if you unfold the drum rack's track in session view, you can access each pad as if it were a separate track:
