Re: Producers, Name your Problems with making beats

Yeah, I do transpose automation sometimes. Other times I'll just copy the sample a few times and transpose each new copy. Individual tracks could work, but then I wouldn't see the other samples' MIDI, and I'd have to arm tracks constantly to play the samples from my keyboard. With that said, this sc...

Re: Producers, Name your Problems with making beats

I'm super happy with Live for making beats, and I never really have any problems to be honest. I think I would enjoy using it even more with this implemented: 1. Some kind of flam/roll/velocity/effect functionality for individual piano roll steps. Basically, Effectrix for drum rack MIDI notes. (http...

Re: Insert Time and "Enter" Key.

It does work if you hit "enter" twice. I agree though, that's not expected behaviour. Normally you would at least be able to use the tab key to go from the input fields to the "ok" button.

I've never used that pop-up dialogue - I prefer just making a selection and hit ctrl+i.

Re: Post your most obscure Ableton Live knowledge

There are some things in Ableton Live that I think only three people know about. Here's one: The rack Hierarchy view, right click the little Rack Overview and receive a menu which will allow you to quickly jump to any instrument, or effect within the rack. It's very useful when dealing with complex...

Re: Push 1 Pitch Bend issues

This is a well-known and super-frustrating bug in Live, and I have no idea why it's not fixed yet. The solution is to move the pitchbend up or down very slightly, which will "activate" it, even though of course I don't understand why it can't be activated like that from its default center position. ...

Re: Strip silence would be handy

I've needed this on several occasions. It would also be neat to have "strip silence and cut time", to place new clips right next to each other.

Re: How to get a Timpani roll sound

I'd probably try to automate things like the attack envelope, lowpass filter cutoff, and maybe some distortion. As others have said, some slight randomness would probably make it sound more natural. I know you said no sampling, but may I ask why not? It would definitely be the best-sounding option. ...

Re: How long do you take to work on a song?

It varies a lot. Sometimes things just fall into place within a day or a week, and other times it feels like a very challenging puzzle that lasts for months. I'm not one to spend tons of time refining tracks though. I'd rather explore new ideas and be exposed to my weaknesses in my 90% finished song...

Re: Why you still with Livw when we have Bitwig?

I find Bitwig to look messy and hard on the eyes. Despite its numerous great features that Live is missing, little things get in the way for me - like you can't use your up/down keys when changing parameters on native device controls, there's no "chord" MIDI device, can't expand mixer track height o...

Guide: How to render individual video tracks from Live

So, I was trying to do an Andrew Huang style video in Live, which is basically using video clips as samples (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XK46ZSlcyc) I wanted to export each individual track's video, but the render dialog told me it only works for audio tracks. Solution: Select the vide...

Re: A 'Commit' function for the 'Detune' Parameter in Simpler

Cool idea! A commit function would add a nice intuitive touch to sampling.
