Re: using a drum rack and playing keys simultaneously

Can your keyboard separate the note signals from your drum pads from the note signals from your keyboard? As far as Ableton (or any DAW) is concerned a MIDI C1 from a drum pad is the same as a MIDI C1 from a keyboard unless you can find some way of differentiating them. e.g. Can you assign the drum ...

Re: Loop in Midi editor not working.

The loop button at the bottom left is clip looping. If you drag the clip on the right or left side with the button on, it will create a linked series of loops similar to the loop tooltips in Pro tools or Logic. It also turns a clip from a one shot to a loop in session view. If you want to loop in th...

Re: Updating to Live 9.7

When you open them they will open in 9.7 and when you close them again you will be prompted to save them so they are compatible with 9.7. You can overwrite the old projects or save them under a different name. I generally overwrite the old projects, it isn't as if I'm going to downgrade to an older ...

Re: Need to open sets faster at gigs. Use a 2nd computer?

Yeah that makes sense. It's still cheaper than buying another MacBook though.......

I've always had an issue with changeover time. The giant set is the best option I can come up wiht but I can see it might not work for you. 20 seconds doesn't sound long but it's a lot of dead time onstage.

Re: Need to open sets faster at gigs. Use a 2nd computer?

This has always been an issue for me. I have tried two solutions 1) Buy a cheapo sampler such as the AKAI MPX-80 to start the loops while Ableton is changing over. With a bit of practice it's possible to turn off the sampler and turn on Ableton reasonably seamlessly (although I never got it perfect)...

Re: Volume greyed out

Tracks now default to monitoring off when you record them (I think the sssumption is you will be montoring directly via your interface for zero latency). Turn the monitoring to in (if you want to hear the input) or auto (if you want the track to behave according to the older default where recordng o...

Re: Apply autofliter in a whole song with 6 external outputs

If it's 6 outputs you'd need to add the filter to each output group or bus as the audio presumably does not share a channel at any point. If you want to control them all together I think you'd have to map using MIDI learn, or find or build a Max device that would control several channels from one de...

Re: Analog stereo oscillators

Oscillators sync on startup, but if you pitch shift one oscillator and then pitch shift it back again, the phase does not stay constant. Try it if you don't believe me. So if you truly want to have a different phase L-R rather than any of the other solutions that suggests you could set up a clip at ...

Re: Auto Tune VST for Ableton

A VST3 shouldn't open at all

I think the OP meant Ableton couldn't detect the VST, not that the VST couldn't detect sound. I might be wrong about that I suppose.....

Re: Auto Tune VST for Ableton

Auto tune works fine in Ableton. Something else is wrong here. Are you trying 32 bit VSTs in a 64 bit instance of Live or something like that?

Re: NI Komplete vs Moog Sub37

+1 go hardware. Hardware is if nothing else massively entertaining to use. Twisting a physical filter knob will always feel better than clicking a mouse or even tweaking a MIDI controller. Music tech is a very expensive pastime if you aren't having fun, and you'll probably make better music if you'r...

Re: Exporting a complete song

Good catch. The Pink Buttons in that skin don't jump out at me like the orange ones do. :) I really feel this button should be in the transport bar. It's like in no man's land where it is now. One of the things that tripped me up early on. +1. It used to be in the transport bar and made a lot more ...

Re: Backing up songs-Will 3rd Party Software Programs Be Saved?

When you do a "save as" into a new location it will create a project folder with teh .als file and not a lot else in it. To consolidate all the samples, audio files etc into the folder use "collect all and save". If your track is mainly MIDI (instruments etc) then yes the save process is very quick ...
