Re: EQing when DJing with Live?! Advice...

There is deffinatly no "right" answer to your question. As Superchibisan said everyone does it differently. It depends on the genre of music, it depends on the subgenre, it depends on the song, the song you play next, which parts of the songs you're mixing, even which beat you start the 2nd song on,...

Re: Huge differences in Library size between Live 7 and 8

Have any of you tried installing the "Live 7 Legacy Pack" (available in the downloads section of the ableton website)? Noticed that there are very few impulse presets in the standard Live 8 library. Probably trying to move the people on to Drum Racks. But this alone would probably reduce the number ...

Re: Beat Repeat sometimes not triggering

the beat repeat starts one interval late. I've been having that quite often. Posted it in both the "beta bugs" & "bugs & problems" forum but got no answers. Might sound a little mean, but I'm glad I'm not the only one having the problem. One thing I noticed was that this happened less often if I se...

Re: conflict with using two controllers

you'll need to change the global channel for one of the controlers. So if the BCD is sending on midi channel 1, set the global control for the axion to channel 2 (should be described in the manual how to set it up). For use with live it automaticaly detects the channel. For vsts/hardware synths, you...

Re: Who uses sends and how? When will Ableton improve them?

I want to be able to use every knob i have as effectively as possible while reducing cpu usage. with a solution to this i would be able to have 3 or 4 effects set up solely on return channels and then choose at what time to use them by turning one knob and slowly, or quickly, bring it in. it also a...

is that a statement or a question?
can this be a problem using apc 40 with groups?

Re: do you feel guilty using loops you didnt make?

I once downloaded a zip somewhere with 20something rearranged amenloops of which i've used quite a few in finished songs (layering extra kick, snare, hats, on top). Though by now I've used all the ones that appealed to me, so now I've gone to slicing to midi and rearanging them again myself. Apart f...

A few songs: Ambient/Trance/Goa/Acidtechno/Speedcore

As I've been wandering around this board for some time now, I thought I might as well post some of the stuff I've created in past (well finished "Elektronik" yesterday). Hoping someone round here might have some contructive critisism for me (as opposed to the "great song" I get from my friends every...

Re: running two audio interfaces at once...

What does "at once" means for you? You can run a DAW with two interfaces hooked to your PC but the DAW will be able to use only one - at least on XP. So, Not quite. As I posted in the "hardware setup" window of the asio4all driver (don't remember which version - must have been around 9 months ago) ...

Re: running two audio interfaces at once...

My old usb interface only had 1 pair of stereo outputs so I tried that once on my old desktop using the asio4all driver and selecting the outputs of the interface & the onboard soundchip. The problem was that that they had different latencies (which couldn't be adjusted seperatly) so that made the w...

L8-Limiter muted while changing Analog Factory Presets

Wierd little bug. Have A live set with 6 audio tracks & 1 midi track with analog factory on it & a limiter (Default patch: Ceiling: -0.30dB, Stereo, Gain: 0, Lookahead: 3ms, Auto Release: On) on the master channel. Set was playing only the 1bar midi clip in session while I was browsing through the p...

Re: Loudness war - over-compressed and over-maximized music

I'm missing the option: "depends on the music genre"
For hard techno/hardcore compress the fuck out of it, so every single element blasts your brains out.
With Ambient/really nice oldoldoldschool trance there should be little quirks & dribbles that are rather guessed than actually heard.
