Topic: Should I normalize all my music for Ableton?
Replies: 4
Views: 626

Even if stuff is normalized there will be tracks that are louder or softer in average volume (RMS, if I'm not butchering the verbiage). So it's bound to get more complicated than getting both tracks normalized, especially if doing anything other than just crossfading. I don't know Traktor at all but...

Out of order but why can't you: 1) Create 16 MIDI channels 3) Route each MIDI channel independently (1-16 on whatever) 4) Keybind either clip slots or scene launch (muting/unmuting a track might be worth binding too) (Extra step: Adjust global launch or clip launch parameters like quantization or wh...

Giving the kick some spots in the mix where it's alone can help, as in below 80hz maybe and another bump or two up in higher frequencies. Sometimes I have to force myself to do that, even though it's always better in the end . . .

Re: MIDI Remote Scripts

Anyway, under [device controls] Encoder1, Encoder2, Encoder3 etc. Are these the ones that are default mapped to the macros in the active rack ? Yes. Also are there any other controls available that are not in this config file ? Tricky question . . . some of the included control scripts for devices ...

http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd280/swollen-nose/coverpic-1.jpg Just on a philosophical or cultural level this really validated the concept of synthesis for me, that synthesis really could be just as valid as traditional instruments and that it really had it's own intangible beauty.

Topic: Can APC control 3rd party plugins?
Replies: 2
Views: 298

There are probably a few different ways this will be done. The way 3rd party plugs display their parameters in Live's device view is getting revamped, users can control which show up and in what order. I'd imagine the APC will grab the first 8 by default? You can create a template instrument or effe...

For some reason I want multiple arrange pages now, wouldn't that be a clusterf*ck . . .

If I can use a lifeline to get a dev answer, will it be possible do step sequenced (or some other scheme) clip envelopes in Max for Live?

No clue if there's much of a 'portal' type site planned for some of the things that will be floating around. Something with a good system for cataloging Max objects, rating them, tracking downloads and updates, some news-digest entries on a front page. Wikis are cool but not really as spontaneous as...

Re: akai APC40

looks like bye bye monome... Perhaps the Monome / MIDIBox and other DIY avenues get empowered by new Abe products. They generate demand for a very unique style of controller by putting it in the hands of more people. Especially with Max for Live, I'm sure people are brainstorming already about a lo...

About as impressed with Ableton right now as after demo'ing Live for the first time. Feels like it's going to be a great year. I wonder if some of the Monome/Live software stuff will work with this, in any case the potential for similar stuff is all there. "GB: It’s quite fortuitous for Live users t...

The multiple colors on the LCD screen seem like a dead giveaway that it's not real hardware, the image is certainly a ray-traced type rendering.
