Re: Apple trying to kill free on-demand music streaming services

Selling recorded music as a career path for musicians is a thing of the past- a flash in the pan of music history. For now we have to fall back on the old ways to earn a crust from music, e.g. teaching, public performance, creating music on commission for wealthy sponsors, or show business, dance gr...

Re: Mixing in Mono?

It's also a good idea to test mixes for situations when both channels can't be heard clearly at the same time, eg in most bars and in most peoples living rooms.

Re: How to have a note play continuously when the clip is looped

If the loop start point is after the start of the note and the loop end point is before the end of the note then it will hold forever

Like this:

__|<------------- Clip ---------------------->|____
____|<------------- Note ---------------->|______
________|<----------- Loop -------->|__________

Re: flats instead of sharps

Have you ever read The Glass Bead Game by Hermann Hesse? Music theory sometimes seems a bit like that.

Re: flats instead of sharps

It's Db7: Db-F-Ab-Cb Since this kind of usage (in modern times at least) is usually in a jazz context the tritone sub will probably resolve down to either a major or minor seventh tonic. In your example of C major the seventh of the Db7 chord (Cb) would simply be a common tone with the CMaj7 chord'...

Re: flats instead of sharps

For example if I use a C#7 chord as a substitute dominant in the key of C (not uncommon) then is that an F or an E# in there? How far should Ableton go in the name of correct musical spelling? Yeah but C#7 wouldn't be the correct spelling for that tritone sub in the first place. It's pretty much al...

Re: flats instead of sharps

Probably best to just think of Live as an instrument. Like most (all?) equal tempered instruments it makes no distinction between F# and Gb or whatever because that has everything to do with the way we think about music and nothing to do with the actual mechanics of producing a pitched sound. Well ...

Re: flats instead of sharps

For me anyway it's a non issue because I end up always writing in some fucked up scale or regular scale with accidentals etc. If it correctly noted the scale it would also have to let me note the accidentals. I have similar problems with Push's scales functions. Recently I've been on a sort of mixe...

Re: Simple gain staging/levels question

If you select all your tracks and move any one of the faders all the others will move in proportion to it. so you can reduce the overall level without changing the balance of your mix.

any prefade effect sends will need to be adjusted though.

Re: Want to live longer? Change genres. It's science.

most of the people that ever played jazz are dead already, because jazz was popular a long time ago.

but you don't get many rappers in their 70's because they would already be middle aged stick in the mud types when Rap was just getting started.
