Re: APC40 TIPS --- Share Your Brainz!

Hey guys, just got my APC and loving it. It's like a musician's toy, the way it allows you such intimate n powerful control of Ableton but in such a darn funky way :) Anyway, enough gush. The tip I have is: if you don't want to allow APC direct access to an effect on a track, group it. For example, ...

Re: How Instant is your search function?

Failing that, just more favourite locations would be handy... got one for samples, one for tunes, and one for project files, I could do with a few more to play about with.

Re: Avoiding accidental double pressing on a MIDI controller?

You could maybe do something with Bome's Midi Translator. It's got timer functions, so you could maybe code something so that it detects but doesn't trigger two CCs if they're within a short time of one another. Other than that, I'd say practice treading on the pedal and then putting your foot elsew...

Re: Another Apc40 problem

Hmm that's odd, try plugging it into a different port, windows cannot for some reason keep track of a device on different hubs without reinstalling drivers. So you can give it a second shot, and hopefully sort it out. With OS compatibility, as it installs as a generic device there shouldn't be troub...

Re: Anyone, crackles in loops [L8]

Hmm yeah, I've frowned at people bashing 8 mercilessly but the problem is I'm starting to feel that way too! Producing with 8 is a bumpy ride, I'd deffo not gig it with the amount of crashes and the trouble I'm having with it in the studio at the mo. The thing is though, when they finally sort all t...

Re: Anyone, crackles in loops [L8]

This was driving me mad recently. Deffo crackles at loop points that weren't there in 7.0.15 and older. I was thinking maybe it's me or the sample, but with the complaints here... another bug. ffs.

Same here, just got a mail through... quite surprising but I'm dead excited now :D

Re: APC40 @ thomann.de

I'll report back if I get a response from Thomann. Fingers are crossed, hopefully it'll be a "your long awaited APC is now out the door on it's way".

Re: APC40 @ thomann.de

I'm afraid I really wouldn't get your hopes up. I'm pretty sure there's a massive pile of preorders, and they've not been sent out yet. There's no word on when they'll be available either- for a short while the APC page said orders will be shipped 29/06/09 and that has recently disappeared. Doesn't ...
