Transient Subtraction Gate (Live 8)

Just fell upon a cool way to take away the initial transient of a beat/etc. 1) Create 2 tracks playing the same drum clip (audio) set to Beats warp mode with Transient selected and transient Loop mode set to 'off' so the transients play forward once and stop (I love this mode). 2) put a utility on a...

Re: Re:

Eh. Hate to revisit this. But after a couple of new takeover threads appeared, I think it needs revisiting. When it comes to the FADERS, will the APC support proper takeover mode? 1. I adjust the first fader on Track 1 in Bank 1. 2. Then change to Bank 2 and tweak the same fader for Track 9. 3. I s...

Re: does this feature exist within LIVE?

Hey Guys,
Check out "takeover mode" in the midi/sync tab of the preferences. It's been in there since version 6 i believe.

I'd prefer all questions come via paper airplane, but hand raising and yelling in an orderly fashion is also acceptable.

Dom is right here:

((110 buttons - 1 crossfader + 9 faders) /2 footswitch ports) - 17 encoders = 42.

Does the arrival of the APC mean that Ableton won't improve the unofficial feature that allows us to create our own custom MIDI Maps? Let's put it this way: the arrival of Max for Live means you'll be able to do much, much more. If you're remapping things with Live's midi learn, you actually have a...

:oops: Good catch, I read that incorrectly as pan/send knobs. But somehow I ended up being right even though I was confused 8) I had some things wrong in my previous post: Every button on this can be used as for custom MIDI mapping. All the arrows, shift button, track selection etc. every last butto...

If you copy and paste a clip into a new slot, will the APC sense this and light the appropriate pad accordingly? Yes. I cant even find where to download the Owners Manual on the internet! Not finished yet ;) First my question is this controller has more than 128 controls. I take it Akai’s not using...

ok but im more interested for the OTHER side: will Live send clip matrix as standard midi message, not contolling live from a device. I just want to display the session wiew on a touch screen (but with large cells, actually live is useless with a touchscreen, it's soon multitouch windows7 era and l...

But what about using another instant mapping device alongside the APC40, not instead of it. Can different tracks/devices be selected with each simultaneously?

No, one track can be selected at a time for device control.

Can you simultaneously press multiple clip launch buttons across different scenes ?

Just to clarify, you can if the clips are on different tracks. As in Live, you can't launch multiple clips on a single track.

Re: Release date

I believe the March dates are incorrect.

Hi All, I'll answer what I can here: How will group tracks be handled? If a group track is closed, the fader controls that group track. If a group track is expanded, the faders next to the group fader control the sub faders. Are the encoders "smooth"? They are smooth, endless encoders, with no notch...
