Re: Using M4L in a live performance?

Always found it OK including my (simple) homebrews and ones from maxforlive.com. Caveat: I did find a glitch with the Max API device where if you map it to a macro it causes Live to crash on exit. The actual set and playing gigs were not affected, the main annoyance was that whenever you opened Live...

Re: pitch bend on external synth not returning to zero

If you're running suite there's a Max MIDI monitor plugin.

Re: How to send MIDI pr. change to Novation Circuit Mono Station

Looking at the manual it looks like the program changes are on channel 16. The ctrl chooser is for continuous controllers not channels. If you have a track set the channel 16 and put the program change clip in there it might work. *However* this seems to change session (not sure what that is since I...

Would be nice to be able to do them all at once as a kit though.

Re: On what do you guys perform? eg tables, stands?

I velcro everything to a plywood top to a keyboard stand that I made myself, and carry it all to gigs on one flight case. The flight case has bits of foam glued in the lid to stop it all moving about in transit. All I have to do is lift it onto the stand and plug it in. Saves about 20 minutes pluggi...

I tend to use Max devices for this - controlchange8 works pretty well. http://roberthenke.com/technology/m4l.html

Re: [SEEKING] Ableton Live remote control for OSX

If what you want to do is let FOH mix you on the fly as if you were a band maybe an out the box alternative - run through an XR/MR-18 or similar and let FOH remote control the mix and EQ via that? Or is it vital that FOH canactually mess with the Live set? Downside - will cost a bit. So if you want ...

Re: Natural pitch correction - other than Melodyne

Waves says only Arrangement View is supported. At least with the simpler version I got it sounded wrong in Session and correct in Arrangement, so I'd say these are not the same. But I assume you have more experience with this than I do. Officially it's unsupported though. I ran it in session before...

Re: Natural pitch correction - other than Melodyne

I'm not saying it compares in all the features especially with Meolodyne DNA but the OP said he just wanted pitch correction on a monophonic track. It can be got very cheaply. The actual pitch correction seems fine (bought it as part of a super cheap bundle to replace AT after the AT upgrade price w...

Re: Natural pitch correction - other than Melodyne

Waves Tune is OK and has the advantage of being very cheap *if* you get it as part of a deal. Basically you have to sign up for their email and every so often it comes up super cheap. I think AT is possibly better in terms of naturalness (is that a word) but as you say not a lot of use on PC without...

Re: USING MIDI ON VST'S

Once it's on a Macro you don't need to map the knob. Set up the launchkey as a control surface (and unmap any MIDI assignments you have made) and once the rack is selected you will find that the launchkey pots turn the macros. The thing to look for is a blue hand at the top of the rack showing that ...

Re: Complicated macros.

If you want to keep them proportionately the same so C is always double B is always double A, can't you use range so A is mapped from 100-1000HZ, B from 200-2000HZ and so on? Or have I totaly misunderstood what you want?

Re: Are the changes to Arrangment View in L10 helping you?

I don't like the all one colour thing As has been noted elsewhere it's hard to see the grid lines behind the new blocks except when automation is on. I also found the old tracks with a colour bar at the top and an audio/MIDI representation at the bottom easier to work with. Different clearly marked ...
