Metre or Time Signature changes that change Playback?

Hi, I've been playing with time signature changes over single, previously-warped audio clips to see if I can hear any changes in meter/metre. To my ears there's no difference with fiddling around neither in the clips Time Signature nor in the global Time Signature, assuming the BPM stays the same. T...

Re: whats the craziest thing someone has done with live?

Certainly not among the most ambitious things you can do with ableton, but I'll volunteer a short (5 min) live stream from this week's weekly open studio thingy. (makes a bit more "sense" with headphones or real (not computer) monitors: Please realize my show's format: no rehearsal, no cue mix, one ...

Re: triggering clips and automating in arrangement mode

Yes, although I'm the first to get scolded for misunderstanding this stuff myself. So long as your session adjustments are not on the same corresponding tracks as your arrangement automations. As soon as you run a clip or move something in session that's equivalent automation lane and track will be ...

Re: Mastering & Live Performance

Although many good venues will have an outboard limiter/compressor, I play with a brick wall limiter which is practically NEVER pushed. It's only there because I do some rather out-of-hand things, and if I haven't properly contained the frequency range that I'm processing or a plug-in starts to scre...

Re: ClyphX – Utility script for Live 8 (and Live 7 too)

I see. So if you had a clip of any arbitrary length and you renamed it [nextScene] (lseq) DUMMY; n/ scene > Where n is the track name or number where the clip resides, assuming you have the xclip loop button engaged (which in this case will not actually loop the clip) the clip will play in full and ...

Re: LiveAct / DJ SET: What Macbook Pro would be the best choice?

Thought I'd help out and get the responses moving for you, just realize it's been since January 2006 that I was on the market for the latest mac! With that in mind, I'm on the original Core Duo, and I push my routing, plugins, pretty damn hard, ending up with about 11% CPU when idling. Depending on ...

Re: relative midi mappings and key mappings for navigation.

I left a reply to a thread on the boards with the hope that someone might try to sell me on this by means of incorporating these features into my performance approach. No one has taken me up on it; maybe its more a studio workaround.

Re: Control selected track \w keyboard shortcuts

I've been following the development on this thread since its start, thing is I still can't evaluate whether this trick will make my live life any better: I am not a fan of mackie control emulation or Transport, and I like absolute assignments to dedicated physical controllers. I'm a performer first,...

Re: Superior Audio Interface

Glad you can appreciate the difference. I'm looking for something that can give me a cue mix, but like you I've never felt right about compromising on output quality. Thing is, I couldn't promise that I nor my audience could detect the difference. I'd be curious if you could hear the difference betw...

Re: What to look for in a cheap pair of monitors?

Maybe a pair of car speakers deliberately chosen with cardboard cones? If I was going to take the cheap approach, I might at least try to emulate some low end output where you can anticipate your listeners. Rather than go the honest, flat-response route, I'd take it with a grain of salt, and get som...

Re: ECHO Indigo DJx - reviews?

If you look a couple replies back: You're okay in 32bit. Most of your software in OSX snow leopard on the latest chipset is still running in 32 bit, and I'd say the transition is slower that it was moving from Rosetta to Universal to Intel, for example. Software will most likely continue to be relea...

Re: Automation, "Return to Arrangement", and Playing Clips

I'm just crawling out from the water in session view myself, but tracks will be mutually exclusive in arrangement and session. Firing a clip in session that lives on a corresponding track where your automation lane lives will override that automation. Anything that goes grey is due to being offline ...

Re: Playing Arrangement Tracks and Session Clips Together

invol-Brian, Hi, thanks for your response. Ha, yes, I still think of Tracks as being dedicated recordings and playback, and channels being a single thru-line of signal flow. Different concepts for a different era, so I'll conform to ableton's meaning of tracks/channels; in the least so we're talking...
