Spend some time with her singing songs with a tambourine.

Re: Does anyone else have a problem with the FCB1010 and Looper?

It doesn't matter what the fcb is sending as long as you make sure the looper button is only mapped to the message that you want.

Re: Does anyone else have a problem with the FCB1010 and Looper?

It sounds like you are mapping the button to a cc message instead of a note message. Check in the midi mapping window after you map the button. It will show if you have accidentally mapped to a cc. The button will get mapped to the last midi message received and from memory i think the fcb sends a c...

Re: Electronic Music is "Cheating"???

I get this a lot from some of my friends: "..." Anyway, has anybody had similar encounters with such morons? Wtf do you even say to that (in terms they can understand) to make them see how stupid what they're saying is? So, your friends are morons and you want to convince them that they are stupid?...

Re: PONO

the few experimental studies that have been done on ultrasonic frequencies suggest that we can perceive them in some circumstances, however it is through bone conductance, not our ear drums... another important question would be what ultrasonic frequencies are actually preserved after conventional ...

Re: PONO

But it still doesn't get at the key problem in all of this: how ultrasonic frequencies are (or aren't) impacting the audible range in a way that can be perceived as an improvement over not having the ultrasonic frequencies present. Is that they"key problem"? I said how ultrasonic waves might modula...

Re: PONO

There is life above 20 KHz. http://www.cco.caltech.edu/~boyk/spectra/spectra.htm I don't think anyone would argue that instruments emit frequencies above 20kHz. At least no one in this thread seemed to. I'm just following the signal path, starting with pressure waves in the air. Some tweeters can r...

Re: PONO

Electret microphone shows no degradation of signal up to 48 KHz. Preamps work in that range too.

Re: PONO

Filters are used to cut out anything above the "audible range" in order to set the frequency bandwidth, but those higher frequencies (like the harmonics shown in the oscilloscope) appear to be integral to the original sound. As air vibrations those higher frequencies are still air movements so they ...

Re: PONO

Thanks for this Stringtapper. It is indeed true in theory that in order to be able to reconstruct a signal the sampling frequency must be at least twice the frequency of the signal being sampled. As you point out though,this is a theoretical minimum and a number of engineering difficulties mean that...

Re: PONO

Somebody correct me if I'm barking up the wrong tree here - apart from recording, isn't playback of more than 48khz 16 bit a total waste? Human hearing goes up to 20khz, most people can't hear anything after 17khz. 17khz x 2 = 34khz playback. So 48 just to be safe, though I don't think more than on...

Re: The Great BitWig Migration

Certain features in Bitwig are objectively better, still holds true. Another to add to that list is appearance. The UI is MUCH more pleasant to work with. How something appears to an individual is a subjective impression, not objective. Being more or less pleasant to work with is also a subjective ...

He's doing it from scratch, so it takes a while (4 min or so) to get going.

As a bonus - I don't think it's techno. Some earlier popular musical form, I think.
Thats a demo of Talent, not Push.
