Re: Semitone-based Frequency Shifter for live-use? Building one?

Frequency shifters don't preserve relationships between harmonics but rather change every frequency component by the same amount. As an example, if you have a waveform with a fundamental freq of 440 Hz and a single overtone at 880Hz and shift by 440 Hz you get 880Hz and 1320Hz which is no longer an...

Semitone-based Frequency Shifter for live-use? Building one?

hi all, I'm working on a live set that consists of six sub-group channels of audio (these are the result of bounced audio parts, live synthesis and a few midi/drum rack combos). I'm looking for an audio effect similar to the Frequency Shifter device, but one that works in semitone-steps rather than ...

Re: Advice on building first Max patch - for my Monomachine

Thanks for emailing it to me : ) Sorry for the silence on my end! I've been really busy, working on a live set and finishing off a demo mix (plus school, work... and all of life's other hurdles). So I havent had a chance to test out the Mnm Max Device yet. But once I've finished my demo mix, i'll ge...

newer version of Loop Shifter that you can drag clips into?

hi all, I really like some of the unusual sounds that can be created using Ableton's M4L 'Loop Shifter' device. I'm not at home right now, but have worked out a way to incorporate it into a live set, using the ReSample function and some side-chaining. Anyway, my question is, is there a newer version...

Re: Live gigs: worth having a second drive (SSD) for audio?

Re: Live gigs: worth having a second drive (SSD) for audio?

Ok guys, sorry to bring this up again, but I've had another thought and figured someone here could help me shed some light on it :) If you were reading up to six channels of bounced stereo audio (48K, 24bit) from a hard drive, as well as streaming up to 8 mono channels of audio (from external synths...

Re: Advice on building first Max patch - for my Monomachine

Is there one?? You mean it's already done?? Some others mentioned it. But I looked and couldn't find it anywhere. What's it called? 'monomachine max patch' didn't give me any love If someone has beaten me to my first Max project, that's ok with me. I've got another I'd like to undertake anyway : ) b...

Advice on building first Max patch - for my Monomachine

hi all, so Im new to Max. But I've got two weeks off uni and I've thought of a device I'd like to build (my first). What's more, I don't think it'd be that complicated! I want to build a Max MIDI device that will allow me to select parameters (from a pull-down menu) for my Elektron Monomachine, then...

Re: Syncing to video - a way to stretch tempo but lock markers?

Cheers :)

Good idea with putting frame numbers in the markers.

And yeah, just working on sound design at the moment. No syncing for months still.

Syncing to video - a way to stretch tempo but lock markers?

full title: Syncing to video - a way to stretch song tempo but lock specific transitions? Hi all, I've only recently started doing the sound design for some video work in Ableton (used Ableton for years, but not much with video). If I've got a video that's 6 minutes long, and at 3min:05sec (for exam...

crush effect to turn off with midi CC pot at 12 o'clock?

hi all, I'm trying to get a few different channel effects to turn off when their mapped MIDI CC pot is at 12 o'clock (so midi value 64 (of 128 steps) is equal to off). I've attached an image to give an idea of *why* I want to do this: http://i51.tinypic.com/2yn4ig6.png Using my VCM-600 controller, I...

Re: Live gigs: worth having a second drive (SSD) for audio?

haha nice reply. i like your casual writing style. this is all very interesting. I think im in need of a faster Macbook anyway, as my latest attempted-live-set had my computer's (not Abelton's) CPU meters both up a around 98% (!!). But then I reckon removing the CD drive and replacing it with a seco...

Re: Live gigs: worth having a second drive (SSD) for audio?

continuing with the topic: would it be enough to store the project/live set (as in 'collect all and save...') on the SSD, or would I be better off storing the entire Live Library on there too? I'm not using any simplers/samplers in my live set, but am using a fair few Drum Racks (which are reading f...

Behringer BCF2000: faders to control multiple parts?

hey guys, Im not sure if this is possible, but I'd like to use the faders on the Behringer BCF2000 to control eight general sub-groups (which is what I'm currently doing), but then also, at the push of a button, control eight smaller sub-groups of percussion and drums. That way I can flip between co...
