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.

Re: record midi

I am sure this is simple but I am getting sporadic results ie sometimes the midi records and sometimes it doesnt and I dont know why. I have a midi track and in that track I have inserted a midi clip. I have a roland handsonic connected via midi and when I hit a pad on the handsonic I see a yellow ...

Re: APC 40 cannot setup for life of me!

Have you set it up as a control surface in the fields at the top of the MIDI sync page? Above the normal MIDI settings. "Control Surface", "Input" and "Output" should all read APC40 (although for some reason on our old work PCs it reads as "AKAI USB audio device" in the input and output fields altho...

Re: Triggering video while performing live

You can do this with locators. Put a locator at the start of the video, Midi map it to the same key as you're using for the scene, then the scene will trigger the video as well. You can do this with more than one video as long as all the videos are on the same track, and use the arrange page loop br...

Re: listening simultaneously through headphones & monitors

OK, I'm hoping I'm pitching this right and not telling you something you already know. Your soundcard has two inputs (one mic and one guitar), so you can only hook up two things at once. The number of outputs (which people have been talking about regarding the Fast Track Pro) doesn't matter for that...

Re: listening simultaneously through headphones & monitors

Having said that, is all you want to do listen simultaneously to the music in phones and monitors? Or do you want to do something more complicated like send click to phones but not the monitors? First, I faced the problem of being disable to connect a mixer to ableton because of the absence of the ...

Re: listening simultaneously through headphones & monitors

I use M audio gear because I've found it to be pretty robust. We use 20 Fast Track Pros at the college where I work and the students haven't managed to break any of them in four years. Sound quality is fine for the money IMHO. Having said that, is all you want to do listen simultaneously to the musi...

Re: Issues with live 8 and the mBox pro 3

There's a known issue with a Pro Tools driver (if you have an MBox 3 I'm guessing you have PT....) in Lion. We had what sounds like this issue on our work Macbook and removing the driver cured it (even though it's a MIDI driver....go figure). Look for DigiDioMidiDriver and remove it. It doesn't seem...

Re: Variable set of midicontrol?

If you're using software FX within Ableton you could do something with chains I think. Put your FX patches in chains in a rack and MIDI map ALL the control maps you want. Don't worry if the controls do different things on different chains right now. Then, separate out the chains in the chain selecto...
