yeah, ableton should be expected to think up every possible usage case scenario and be 100% accommodating for it, no matter how rare or bizarre or seemingly useless that usage case is :roll:

Re: How to find correct combination of chords ?

the only answer to this question is: study music theory and experiment with what you learn.

Re: What's Your Workflow using Maschine and Ableton

+1 on just dragging and dropping audio from Maschine to Live. I don't even use Maschine as a plugin in live, just in standalone. I absolutely hate having the maschine trasnport turned off. TBH, there just isn't a good workflow for running the two in sync. I like to create sequences in Maschine, in s...

Re: Methods 4 pitching up/dwn vox radically keeping quality

Live's pitching results seem to be intensely content-dependent, which means there's no golden rule for what gets good results. It's amazing to me how one file can sound perfect when radically re-pitched in "complex pro" mode, while another will get utterly mangled... I've yet to recognize what facto...

Re: Since v9.2 Ableton is borderline useless for me

Load times for projects and startup are ok, but for me it hangs a lot -- I get a OSX beach ball making me wait between performing basic actions far more often than I think I should be. I have a new 2016 iMac with 16 gigs ram and fancy-ass i7 processor and all that, but yeah, it hangs a lot. In a cro...

Re: Audio vs drum racks

Some people like me are MIDI people, who like to perform hands-on with controllers and keys, and then see the performance mapped out in a piano roll for editing. Some people are audio people, who don't perform hands-on much per se, and prefer to see audio waveforms laid out on the screen, and move t...

Re: Essential plugins for mixing

Seriously, just use the native Live effects for mixing - they are awesome. EQ8 and Compressor are fantastic for mixing duties, and the delays are all indispensable to me.

Re: Reverb template

I have a template that I've used for 5+ years now, only occasionally with tweaks and adjustments. I actually have 12 sends on it, the maximum; obviously they don't all get used in each session, but the idea is that everything I need is ready to go. What's amazing is this template has worked for me r...

Re: How to use StudioOne SoundSet in Ableton Live 9?

I have SoundSets from Studio One 2 which I would like to use in Ableton Live 9. Per https://www.reddit.com/r/abletonlive/comments/2k27sk/can_i_use_other_daws_soundsets/ I should be able to do this. I added the SoundSets folder to the Ableton Live "Places", but the folder is empty (when viewed in Pl...

Re: Nexus or Kontakt

Why are you comparing a Synth ROMpler mostly used for dance music to a Sampler mostly used for, you guessed it, Sample based instruments... ?

Apples Vs Oranges and all that.

Other response: since you have to ask this question in the first place, just go buy Nexus.

Methods for sync'd video with Live, live - discuss!

Hello, Subject says it all. If you are doing any kind of live performance with Ableton and it includes sync'd live video, I want to hear about how you are doing this! In great detail! Points of interest: 1. Are you playing back the video from the same system that is running your live set? 2. If so, ...

An album of Doom Jazz made entirely with Ableton Live

I've released my first official solo album, titled GUILT NOIR by Michael Arthur Holloway. Some of you may know me for my work as DEAD WHEN I FOUND HER, my electro-industrial project, signed to ArtOfFact Records / Storming The Base. Well, my first solo album is something else entirely -- 10 tracks of...
