Re: Dj'ing with Ableton....

Yes you can mix internally with traktor pro, you can also use any soundcard you want to and yes you can jump right in and beat match on the fly. No pre warping or anything needed, traktor uses beatgrids for it to 'sync' tracks up. Very straight forward.

Re: Dj'ing with Ableton....

I agree, far too many people forget that it is THE SONG that people want to hear, not some guy de-constructing that song and putting 20 effects over it and destroying how the song was originally meant to be heard. I think effects are good as long as they are used well and not over done all the time.

Re: Dj'ing with Ableton....

Yes i have thought a lot about that 102455, i am really thinking hard about what it is i want to achieve, i play House/Tech House, so i must admit i don't think i really want to be doing mad looping effects live remixing of tracks so much. My vision is kind of to be able to loop certain parts of oth...

Dj'ing with Ableton....

Ok, So i'm thinking of changing my DJ set up, currently i'm using Traktor Pro and 2 X1 Controllers and my NI Audio8 Soundcard. However, i'm thinking about switching it up to Ableton, the only reason being is that i just get this feeling you can be a bit more creative with ableton, e.g firing off all...

Hi all, I'm running ableton rewired with logic, with logic as the master and ableton as the slave, but when i come to use a midi track and arm it in ableton, i am getting a constant signal (like dirty noise) coming through the channel.

Warping help - Tempo changes problem

Hi, I'm pretty new to warping, so this may seem a bit of a silly question, my problem is i am trying to warp an old dance track, the first 3mins of it all match up on the beat/bars fine, e.g i set a loop of 4 or 8 bars and it loops perfectly, but after 3mins the kick beat shifts off the grid and if ...

Ableton 8 64Bit Mode/ Rewire help.....

Hi All, I was just wondering weather Ableton Live 8 runs in 64bit mode? I only ask as i just changed logic pro to run in 64bit mode, but now when i open logic pro it says it can't run Rewire in 64bit mode (i use logic pro as the main base and ableton rewired into it), So i was thinking maybe i need ...

Re: Ableton sampler/EXS24 files

Oh I see what you mean. I will test out sampler today but personally I don't think I'm going to buy it, I'm not prepared to pay all that money for it just so I can play exs24 files. I will make my the same banks as I have in my exs24 but this time I'll make them with drum rack and save them as patch...

Re: Ableton sampler/EXS24 files

You don't have to map them by hand in 'drum rack' - I just shift-click a bunch of one shot samples and drop them onto the drum rack, it then automatically maps them across the keyboard.
That is for 1 shot samples of course.
