Re: Finally a nice footswitch

StewD, Between the holiday rush and upgrading my system, I haven't had a chance to play with SoftStep in depth. As soon as we get by New Year, I'll have some time and will post my thoughts. They've added some videos to their YouTube page, but this thing has many more possibilities than have been see...

Re: Finally a nice footswitch

SoftStep! I got mine too, on 11/2. It's beautiful! Well built, many ways to configure it, light, cool looking. As soon as I figure it all out, I'll let you know. One thing for sure, the software is based on (or uses) Max/MSP, so you know it's going to be developed for many apps as people start using...

Re: Problem with NanoKontrol

I've only used the nanoKontrol, and it is one of the best things I've bought in years. I use it every day as a controller for my software mixer, Brainspawn Forte. It takes up very little space, has ample MIDI controls, and saves me from either mousing a laptop or carrying a hardware mixer to gigs. T...

Re: one constant midi note without interruption

I saw Robert Rich in concert this summer. He had folded cardboard jammed between keys on his keyboard to achieve these long notes. You can see them also in one of his YouTube videos. I remarked that I had been looking for a way to do it, and he said it was a pretty low-tech solution, but it worked. ...

Re: one constant midi note without interruption

Angstrom! Thank you!! I have pulled my hair out over this for a couple years. I've posted on a bunch of forums, including here, and never got a solution. But, as you point out, it's pretty simple. I had tried changing the loop start point, but when it reached the end of one iteration it would stop (...

Re: one constant midi note without interruption

You raise an issue for which I have long searched for an answer. What you describe is called "latching." It means turning a note on and leaving it on until you "unlatch" it. Modular synths do it easily, most softsynths don't do it at all. You can get an idea how it works if you set the Ableton Arp t...

Re: Gigging with Live

Paul R. (Midiot), Great music on your site! It's nice to see people using Live for other than dance/electronica. The more I use it and learn about it, the more impressed I am. I'm using Live to create a pallette of many choices for improvised ambient music. I've been working on it for two years...I ...

Re: Gigging with Live

If you are on a PC, you should have a look at Brainspawn Forte. It is designed for the kind of use you describe, and does a fantastic job. You can set up scenes (containing instruments, patches, FX, MIDI routing) for each configuration you need, one per song if you like, and cycle through them with ...

Re: Some questions about my equipment set-up plan

For my "fun" non-gigging laptop (WinXP)rig at home, I attach all of these: APC40, APC20, Launchpad, two Edirol PCR keyboards, Rig Control, UMG 3 MIDI interface, MOTU MicroBook, EWI USB, nanoKontrol, Bheringer FCB 1010 (MIDI), Kore 2, and several footpedals (into the hardware). I use two 7-input powe...
