is Live's vocal recording sound as good as the other sequencers such as Soanr, Logic. Like if I was to get someone to sing, is it possible with Live and if it is... is it as good as any other software? The reason I ask because everyone keeps saying how Live is such a loop based software... but neve...

Hi Abletoff,
So if this is a persistent prob with M Audio cards, I wonder why they haven't addressed it. :?

I use a PCMCIA FW interface on my laptop.......dunno what the chipset is though. Cost next to nothing on ebay.

cheers

Hi George, Have you set your processor scheduling in XP to "background services"? in the performance settings? Do you get the same problem when using another audio application?

Live5 midi control question

Hi Everyone, I am using a fcb1010 to control LIve5, and for some reason I can't get assigned midi notes to activate things like channel on/off or vst fx on/off. There's no problem triggering clips....strange, like what's the diff? If I open up LIve4 and try it, it works, no problem.. Is there a majo...

Hi Peanut, Welcome to the forum. Live doesn´t do surround panning AFAIK. I have used it to do surround in theatre - on it´s own without true surround panning by sending 4 outs to a mixer (plus another output to the sub bass) - or by rewiring to Cubase SX, which does have a real surround panner. Mayb...

So, in conclusion, Live Lite 4 seems like the one to start with. It's only got 4 tracks, but I get to evaluate the overall outcome. Is there a way around the Demo version not saving? [/b] Jim, why don't you just download the Live 5 demo, if you only want to evaluate the application? It isn't such a...

Dunno about hi-tech stuff, but there is one street there that is full of music stores selling some excellent instruments, like oud, saz etc. I saw an electric saz in one place - damn, I should have got it!
Also Istambul is, of course, a prime place for cymbals.

Looks good to me (um, sorry, am NOT an expert :? ) but the HD speed is 4200 rpm in the specs on the link...I would think you need 7200 -definitely for recording, anyway.

Hi Everyone, I have used the same FW410 with an AMD athlon desktop, a generic PC laptop (4 pin fw cable), a Toshiba laptop (pcmcia FW card) and a G4 powerbook with no major problems at all. Am I just lucky, or what? Yes, the mixer app IS a bit wierd at times, tho. Sorry for the guys having problems,...

My 2 cents worth: keep the monitors away from the wall as much as is possible - not an easy thing if you are in a small space - I also have this problem these days. I noticed that in most of the pictures of peoples setups elsewhere on the forum that most of us have monitors way too close to the wall...
