i:cube interview

Stumbled across this nice interview with one of my favourite producers I:Cube (Nicholas Chaix). Good to hear him bigging up Live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODv1xbSNd5M&feature=related Most of the music is edited out of the interview, so if you haven't heard his stuff try and track down his rele...

yes if you turn on "auto-hide plugin windows" in live's preferences. and turn on "automap focus follows plugin ui" in the automap server menu and only use AU versions of the instruments, then the remote sl should automatically show the parameters of the instrument for whichever track you arm. by the...

That's what Automap is good for. As far as I remember you can tell Automap to automatically display the parameters of the currently active/selected automapped VST/AU on the LCD screens. yes, there is an option in the automap server for "automap follows plug-in ui", except that with live, that doesn...

it's not bad. i've been subscribed for two years but i don't think i'll be renewing my subscription as after 24 issues you start to see the same old stuff being recycled.... there's only so many times i need to read what a compressor does before i get the point. however i will be spending some time ...

i have a pair of sony dr-bt22's and the quality is not that great to be honest. it's partly because the bluetooth A2DP on my phone compresses the audio at quite a low bitrate - so maybe check what bitrate your device can support first. there's an aliasing type whistle that's quite clearly audible, b...

So in other words, Automap version 2 fixes none of the major issues of before in regards to the above? well time will tell, but the control map browser looks like it should help work around the follow-focus problem, and there's also a new shortcut on sl itself to switch between automap devices. whe...

does the X-Y touchpad still crash Live? I haven't tried 7.03 or the new automap, I like the way my system is now, don't want to tempt fate. i don't really use the touchpad but i did have live crash on me with the old automap when my finger accidentally brushed across it. but i think disabling the u...

Re: Why does automap suck?

with the release of automap 2.0 i thought it would be apt to revisit some of my grijpes about automap 1, so here goes... Does the keyboard Automap to control whatever the front active window is? For example, I click on a Sampler instrument, and then the keyboard automatically loads the map template ...

cheers for the link geezus, i am checking out the docs and hopefully all will become clear soon! by custom automap, do you mean regular midi cc control maps? as i'm sure multiple pages were already possible with automap universal where i used a similar approach to spanning certain controls across pa...

Re: Remote SL 2.0 finally Released.

[quote="rhythminmind"]Not sure if this is old news but it was a surprise to me. It seems to be the same version number as the last beta. Make sure you update your SL OS (firmware). But anyways it's out & is working well for me..[/quote] did you also have to overwrite all your templates when you inst...

Anyone know where the manual is for automap 2. I can't find it and can't seem to work out how to use it properly. I was curious by that as well---perhaps they're still working on a final release of that as well? Oh well, anyway, you can find the beta guide here on the, er, uh, beta page :D : http:/...

first impressions are not good unfortunately. installed the thing and can't find any documentation anywhere. the interface has some hyperlinks to the novation website, and those links which aren't broken don't seem to contain any v2.0 info yet. i really don't see the point in hui - there were alread...
