What's your method of playing live?

hey folks, How do you utilize ableton when you play live? I've streamlined my way of playing a few times since I started using live back in 2002 and now I have a pretty effective method for my style, but I'm very interested in hearing how other people use it live to get some new tips or tricks I don...

Fixing a power cable - advice

hi folks, I have a novation nova with a dodgy power cable. its actually the wall warty box thing where the problem lies.. keeps switching off every now and then. The power cable has a weird connection into the synth, like a midi cable in fact. If I were to chop that off and attach it to another powe...

Nord Rack 2 + Nord Lead 2x - What's the difference?

hey folks...

what's the difference between those two synths? From the pictures they seem to look exactly the same. Can't find a description for the nord rack onsite.

cheers

Compact Studio Monitors

Need to do some travelling. Any recommendations on compact studio monitors (active) that I can easily bring with me? I use Alesis MK11 Active at the moment. They are perfect for me but waaay too big and heavy to bring around. Price not really an issue (as long as they are not silly expensive) Anyone...

Possible to change simpler presets with a clip?

hey, for a liveset I'm preparing I want to have the correct simpler preset load for each different clip I play, rather than having to manually change the preset before lauching the clip. I can do this for external synths by including the bank and program number and it automatically selects the corre...

My useful shortcuts - ...

It includes a lot of my favourite tracks from 2006 plus a few older ones for good measure. Minimal and Melodic techno plus a smattering of electro. I took full advantage of the digital p...

A good "non-free" reverb vst ?

hi guys, I've tried both ableton's reverb and many free reverb VSTS, and while there's nothing essentially wrong with any of them; all have virtues and merits of their own, I'm missing the reverb sound I need... specifically I have a hardware alesis midiverb, and the reverbs on that are sweet... Is ...

cropping audio samples

hi guys, have just tried some mp3 dj-ing in live. I'm trying to make 6 or 7 loops from one track and then jamming with the loops. What is the best of doing this. I tried getting a one bar loop and then right clicking and selecting crop sample. I expected it to crop to just that loop, but it seemed t...
