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.

Re: Be able to define anacrusis/upbeat sequence inside clips

I created a small tune demonstrating the need for a extra clip (and row also) to create a anacrusis "effect". http://www.mediafire.com/?nr1mmslgqita721 Basically, what I do in that demo is: 1. play section A 2. trigger anacrusis row 3. immediately after triggering anacrusis row I also trigger secti...

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...

Live 8.2 crashes sometimes in collect all and save

That's basically it. I try to collect all and save, it freezes halfway through the save, has to be closed eventually, won't open again without a restart of the whole computer. Intel Core Quad, windows XP, problem comes with the samples in the puremagnetik clapbox (althogh why that should make a diff...

Re: Bug: 8.1.3 does not remember MIDI controller ranges on VSTs

OK I found a workaruond - put the VST in an instrument rack and map the control to a macro, then Ableton will save the macro range. But still.......

Bug: 8.1.3 does not remember MIDI controller ranges on VSTs

Example: I have tied a MIDI controller to "Semitone tune" in Schwa "Olga". I want the range to be 0 to +12. The range of the control on the synth is -12 to +12, so I have set the MIDI controller range in Ableton so that min= 0.5 and max=1. This gives the control range I want. Fine, but, when I save ...

MIDI control of Ableton instruments/FX from a second track.

I can do this at the moment with VSTs but, weirdly, not Ableton instruments! Example: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4043/4360067535_275821bdae_o.jpg Here the track on the right is controlling a TAL Vocoder that I'm using to process a live vocal in the track on the left. But if I'm using Ableton's o...
