Re: Post your most obscure Ableton Live knowledge

i slide transients around like that when matching doubled vocal phrases to the previous takes. I can stretch individual parts in vocal phrases. So I get the "doubled" vocal vibe and the phrases match perfectly (ish).
I assume people use Melodyne to do similar things but it is really fast in Live.

Re: Controllers Losing Communication with Laptop

Sometimes USB devices get sent to sleep (Windows) - my softstep2 was having problems and I discovered this (er, didn't actually solve my softstep problem but it was good to know). Softstep support always blame the cable first BTW. :mrgreen: Maybe this will help: http://helpdeskgeek.com/windows-xp-ti...

Re: Lose my interface when I plug in my HDMI

I have a PC system and I believe that when I plug in an HMDI connector, a set of related audio drivers gets installed, that at the very least overrides the system audio drivers. I have to go to device manager and disable (or delete) them. :roll:

Re: optimising my set for a live thing

Also helps to remove unused stop buttons in session view. Don't know why but people say that lightens CPU load.

Hard Disk oVerload light

Hi, Anybody got a suggestion as to why the Hard Disk OL lights up when I am playing a Live Instrument and does not with a Kontakt type sample instrument in the same set? Everything is on the same HD. I thought I'd try to lighten up my live set by using native Ableton synths instead of third party......

Re: Random clip launch?

yes, mouse is always OK. Tried different midi controllers but always getting this 2 or sometimes more presses needed to trigger. If mouse is OK then maybe that points to a midi in problem in my Live config.

Re: Random clip launch?

Hi, Yes forcing another random instead of a potential repeat is nice. "Stop" not being a possible action is OK too, if I understand correctly..

Re: Random clip launch?

Ok got it. Working! Fab! Thanks - as long as I set the first clip up and the correct number of clips. Excellent. Many thanks. it is a lot simpler than Gary's idea of the drum rack, which also works, but this way I can just drag into clips and don't have to have lots of simplers open. :mrgreen:

Re: Random clip launch?

Hi Chapelier, Clips not launching - or launch button not responding here- either to mouse or midi notes.

- select a range of clip numbers
- one button to launch random clips within the limits

If so i'll do this today
:idea:

That sounds like it would be a simple solution. IS that easy to make?
