Re: LIVE 9.2b1 Discuss....

You only have to drop in one of Ableton's multi-mic drum kits to add about 100 channels to the mixer. (not counted them but it certainly seems like that). So I think it's necessary to draw a distinction between channels and tracks when talking about performance.

Re: Recording Vinyl in Stereo

You should be able to get a strong enough signal via the EIO's guitar inputs, but it will lack bass because of the RIAA pre-emphasis EQ curve used on vinyl recordings. With a bit of research you could probably set up Lives EQ to implement the RIAA de-ephasis curve but on the other hand you can pick ...

But, to be fair, playing Live is not the time to be worrying about barely audible "subtle changes". :)

Re: Needed advice to train my ear for subtle changes.

Let your ears rest frequently while working. Otherwise you loose perspective. I often waste hours tweaking to get the sound 'just right' then when I listen to it the following day it sounds crap.

Re: Track Volume Input field

Re: Is Digital Amplification Bad?

^^^^ Well put. The only 'Bad' thing that comes from analog amplification is noise (everything else is a matter of taste). When you are recording from an analog source there will always be some noise generated by the analog circuitry, so it's generally best to put your gain at the front end so that t...

Re: Is Digital Amplification Bad?

Also worth noting that once inside Live the signal is converted to and processed as a 64 bit floating point number which has 53 bit precision. equivalent to a signal to noise ratio of approximately -318 dB. which is like the difference between the sound of a snow flake landing and something like an ...
