Freezing issue: MacBookPro + USB gear.. thoughts?

Any folks here using Mac Book Pro and USB gear for live shows? Or just with a USB hub at home? If so, maybe you can help me with this problem (it's not really Ableton specific, but I'm hoping some folks here will run with a similar setup) -- Having issues with MBP freezes in very specific USB-relate...

Re: Soft Modular Synths

Softube. Yikes. Looks frighteningly hard to learn. Makes Bazille look like Operator. Let's review: you start a thread -specifically- asking about modular soft synths... but are now too scared to try a software emulation of the most popular modular system that currently exists on the planet? (Eurora...

Re: envelope point editing wtf has happened?

I still CONSTANTLY drag a single node thinking that node alone will move and go GAAAH, THEY GOT ME AGAIN!! and have to hit Undo, then deselect the region, then move that node.

My brain has just never adapted. It still pisses me off.

Oh well.

Re: Turning on "Warp" without actually warping audio file...how?

It seems like there should be a way to convince Live, so to speak, that a given audio clip's normal, unaltered playback state is wanted even with "Warp" still on. The BPM box is of no use in the case of non-loop / non-musical passages, and I'm specifically working with recorded samples of dialog......

Re: Turning on "Warp" without actually warping audio file...how?

Yes, but when a person first installs Live, and if they've never used the program before, their first experiences with warp will be using Beats, Transient mode as the default. They won't know any better until the day that they learn about that part of the software. And in a lot of cases, beats tran...

Re: Turning on "Warp" without actually warping audio file...how?

Actually what you already do doesn't change the audio clip's tempo if warp is turned on and only the start point warp marker of the file is displayed. If you change the global tempo, of course your clip's tempo will also change relatively. But as long as your global tempo doesn't change, dropping a...

Turning on "Warp" without actually warping audio file...how?

This is really bugging me, and has been for a while. Very specific scenario with audio files, wherein I want "WARP" to = ON so I get the Loop functionality, but I DON'T want the clip to actually get warped to session tempo. Probably best to explain in specific actions performed: Let's say I want to ...

Re: Ableton Live pitch-shifting

the last big update of Cycling 74 patches for M4L focused entirely on pitch shifting devices (actual pitch shifting, not frequency shifting). There's like 6+ of them in there covering a range of tasks. This stuff is in the standard ableton packs page, and it's free.

Re: Drum Racks Kick Drum Laying issue.

I like to take two kicks and layer a nice salami or prosciutto -- or hell, both, why not -- and then use some low fat mayo and honey mustard. If you're feeling real dangerous you could try a THIRD kick in the middle but let's not get too crazy OK why not, layer that third kick and how about a wide s...

Re: Drum Racks Kick Drum Laying issue.

The idea with Layering Kicks isn't that you just take a bunch of kicks and play them simultaneously and hope it all goes well. It won't, as you're discovering. This isn't Drum Racks fault. You have to appropriately EQ each kick so they complement each other. Do some research online, there's plenty o...

Re: What can we expect with X?

just a personal wish-list, but: -new and vastly expanded rendering options, e.g. Bounce in Place, export with sends printed to channels, etc. -the ability to place plugin FX on individual clips, with option to quick render them (check Studio One if you want to see this in action, it's great). - pian...
