Re: Do I Meet The Educational Requirements?

They normally reply pretty fast. Of course it's now Friday so you might not hear before Monday. The eligibility page says anyone in full time education from primary school up to advanced student so I would say yes. bear in mind though I'm not an official Ableton guy. If so you'll need to provide so...

Re: Tutorials - written or video?

Written, please!

Video tutorials are so slow. It takes 10 minutes to say something that can be put in a paragraph of text and maybe a couple of images and read in 30 seconds. I would be happy never to sit through a video tutorial again.

Which plug in? Vinyl Distortion runs all the time regardless of whether a clip has been launched or not.

Re: Vote for your main wishes for Live 9

More than one MIDI track visible in the MIDI window, maybe using different colours for different tracks. Would make harmonising parts so much easier.

It's the one thing about other DAWs I really miss when I'm writing.

Re: Simpler note harmony

AFAIK it just maps the sample to C3 whatever the actual note is, although you can use the detune function to correct that. Same with Sampler, although you can change the root note it doesn't recognise it automatically. It would be a nice thing to introduce.

Re: Retrigger long sustained notes on playback

There isn't a way in MIDI, because of the way MIDI signals work. If you miss the note on, the note won't trigger.

Freezing should do it though and you can always reverse it.

Re: Digital Audio converter?

I use one of these http://www.lindy.co.uk/analogue-stereo-to-spdif-digital-audio-converter/70409.html as I need more analogue inputs live than my interface will give me. Be aware though that a lot of these little ADCs are designed for video and run at 48KHz sample rate so you'll need to set your ses...

Re: adding video to ableton live show

If you put your video in the arrange view you can put markers at the start of your video clips and MIDI map them. Then you can trigger the video clips with the same MIDI triggers you're using for audio clips or scenes in the session view. I think this should work when you're resampling as well. You ...

Re: Latency Issue with live Instrument's

You can also try the "reduced latency when monitoring" option, and if you have access to the control panel for your interface (like an ASIO panel) you can try reducing the buffer size. If you go down too small it will start to break up but you should have some leeway. If neither of these work, I've ...

Re: VCA Fader simulation?

You should be able to MIDI map as many faders as you like to one control.

Re: Anyone using a M-Audio Radium 49?

Yes, you can make that happen, select "Radium 49/61" in control surfaces (at the top). The control surface input on mine says "legacy keyboard MIDI in" and "legacy keyboard MIDI out" in the input/ouptput fields, I think this is what the current set of M-Audio drivers call the Radium. If you're using...

Re: "Ableton Live 8...confidential info...keychain". ..WHAT?

That would probably be the 8.3.1 update arriving and needing permission to install. I've had 8.3 for a bit, saw this message for the first time today, clicked OK, now I'm on 8.3.1.
