Re: Need help with sync settings...

"remote" enables you to map MIDI CCs and similar to your controllers - mapping a rotary from a controller to a filter in ableton for example. If you hit "MIDI" on the top right you can MIDI map any control that shows up in purple by clicking on the control in Ableton then tweaking the fader or rotar...

Re: A VST plugin to record individual tracks in ableton for mac?

Hey man, thanks for the reply. I'm afraid I cant record it in live's arrangement section because I am using an apc 40 and part of my set is to use the global stop and play buttons--- that stops the recording --- Is there any way to set it that the recording can still keep going even if you hit the ...

Re: Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 HELP!!!!

I've had problems with card slots vibrating loose with bass! So I'd just go with a USB interface.

The only laptop with FW around now seems to be Mac.

Re: A VST plugin to record individual tracks in ableton for mac?

Can you record it in the ableton arrange view? Then if you need to mix in another DAW select "all tracks" when you bounce them out in the render menu. If you need audio recordings of your MIDI track performance you could do it internally via sends to other audio tracks. Or just record the MIDI as pl...

Re: midi mapping not working but midi learn in vst does. HELP

If that's the screenshot of your preferences you need to turn the remote on (button on the right). The "track" input will pick up keys to play or record instruments but to trigger loops and work CC's you need "remote".

Re: Playing live gigs - how to get the levels right?

I always reckon it's worth hiring a practice room with a decent PA for at least one session when I'm going to play out new material. It's also worth considering, in the longer term, a soundcard with multi outputs (I use a M-Audio FW 410 which has 8 analogue outs), then you can route drums, bass and ...

Re: Getting past the 3 minute mark/writers block

Quite often I find that after a frustrating time writing "bits" of tunes I can put the bits together nto one good tune. So I'd suggest revisiting your archives and seeing if some of your half tunes will fit together into a whole tune. On the one hand, you'll get some tunes with fairly unexpected cha...

Re: Why Ableton's session view should be in 3D..

Kind of like playlists in Pro Tools except you could scroll through them maybe. But couldn't you get the same functionality by having a bunch of tracks, with the clips you want in corresponding slots, and grouping them? Or if they're audio clips, using instrument racks and chain zones again.

Re: How stable is Live in a live situation? Please read/respond!

I use the slightly older FW 410 with 5 outs and all manner of VSTs. I also stream live vocals through a VST vocoder. I have had some glitches in the studio mainly when I've been trying to edit things but I have to say that live has NEVER let me down onstage up to now. Try it out in a rehearsal room ...

Re: Why Ableton's session view should be in 3D..

The 3D was a little tongue in cheek.. I was thinking aloud! timday, that would be part of the way there - but I should have mentioned that I use the crossfader with those slices too.. So I need that! Soooo - 2 MIDI tracks, 2 drum racks, assign the tracks to the crossfader, have both tracks inputs s...

Re: Why Ableton's session view should be in 3D..

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you but could you slice the audio to a drum rack and control it from a Launchpad or APC20? If you turn the remote on for a Launchpad in Ableton's MIDI preferences, but don't have it as a control surface, then the buttons can act as MIDI triggers on an individual track.

MIDI envelope to audio FX

Hi, anyone know if htis is possible? I am trying to send a MIDI envelope to an audi track. Problem is, I can't just control in an audio clip because the track is for streamed audio (external vocal mic through some distort and reverb in ableton). It would help if I was just able to control volume fro...
