Re: Should I store my samples on SSD or HDD?

Yep, a regular collection of samples is perfectly fine running from a HDD. If you're doing Kontakt based composing however (with high voice counts of direct from disk streaming instruments), then the absolutely best use for the SSD is hosting those Kontakt instruments/samples, as this allows for muc...

Re: Is there a way to lower the volume of certain synth notes?

Ah, about making velocity ramps (in relation to note value) in Live: see the aforementioned MIDI effect rack, not just the singular Velocity device. Create a chain and set the keyboard zone and velocity selectors accordingly. If you want to go really detailed, you can create several keyzones and the...

Re: Is there a way to lower the volume of certain synth notes?

This can be approached in many ways, and the most convenient one depends on what is causing the louder notes. If it's the filter structure in the synth and the patch, for example, making the higher notes resonate more (or some other process in the patch accenting higher frequencies, or conversely so...

Re: Session View vs. Arrangement?

Also (sorry if this is too obvious :) ) google for stuff like "basics of music production", glossary of music production terms, and so on. And progress from there by focusing more and more into the kind of material you want to make, and the specific techniques used in that. This is jumping too far a...

Re: Session View vs. Arrangement?

You have a long road ahead of you. And I mean LONG. :) If you're literally starting from zero, not knowing what the terms mean and how to do things, keep in mind that you aren't only learning Live; you are learning the methodology of producing songs. It's okay that it will take time, and you shouldn...

Re: Maintain automation

If you adjust a control that you have automated, it overrides the automation until you enable it again.

If you wish to automate a variable gain control but keep the channel faders free for mixing duties, use the Utility device and automate the gain.

Re: How to automate this Kontakt parameter in midi track?

My device "Configure" button don't respone on any Kontakt button :-/ I think that's instrument dependent... I mean, depends on the instrument you load inside Kontakt. Just tested it with some Spitfire stuff, and the controls (on the instruments themselves) were mappable and declared their names cor...

Re: How to automate this Kontakt parameter in midi track?

As the actual MIDI CC data (like CC 1, modwheel) isn't parameter automation, and instead "just" MIDI data, Live currently places it sctrictly inside the actual MIDI item. However, you can use something that gives you a parameter automatable dial/control and outputs MIDI CC data upstream, to the inst...

Re: assign multiple midi controls for a single parameter

Max for Live to the rescue. Alas, I don't know of a MIDI routing M4L device that is made for this, right off the bat :), but I would be very surprised if there wasn't one. Search maxforlive.com for a device that receives multiple MIDI sources and can pass them as parameter control to one single dest...

Channel's last used session clip, launch from arrangement

Now that we can individually stop playing a session view clip, from the arrangement view, and have that channel go back to following the arrangement instead... you know, with these guys: https://i.imgur.com/2FBo3TM.png It would be cool if we could also show/hide buttons that can be used for going ba...

Re: Will Wavetable come with Live Standard, or only with Suite?

You can buy Wavetable separately. And when you do that, it's basically like buying any separate synth in that manner (although it only works in Live, of course). The added benefit being, it's available to you in all the subsequent versions using this separate license even if you decide to go with St...

Re: Is there a simple audio send point M4L device somewhere?

Very cool indeed; you can for example add dedicated send channels inside a group with this one. Saveable as a template alongside the rest of the group. Stuff like that. And I don't mean sending to the main return/fx channels in the project, I mean creating dedicated returns inside a group, then plac...

Re: How's the CPU efficiency in Live 10?

Luckily CPU use has generally been normal over here. Already upgraded my license and have done some projects in Live 10. But yep, many people are reporting clearly abnormal CPU loads, here and elsewhere, when compared to the earlier Live version on the exact same system -- and also other audio softw...

Re: match tempo to sample bpm

No, that doesn't make it different. Think about it: otherwise you wouldn't be able to import a sample into Live and base your project around that tempo, using that sample, without rerecording the sample. Doesn't quite make sense :wink:

Re: match tempo to sample bpm

It is kind of hard to explain. If I have a solid clip at a set bpm I think it is a little less hassle to re-record the sample with Abletons master BPM set to the correct value than place all the warp markers in place and shift them around very precisel. I do get what you are saying, it's just that ...
