Re: MPK pad sensitivity issue: TOTALLY SOLVED.

I have a MPD26 and have tried three different pad improvements: 1. Tape: Works but difficult to get it consistently sensitive for all pads 2. Paid for purpose made layers of plastic from ebay: Better that the tape but left variables in the pads again. 3. Thicks red pads with corks from MPC stuff: ba...

Re: help needed in deciding M-audio 61 vs Novation SL MKII

I have the sl mkii 49 and I like a lot of things about it. The much advertised "automap pro" marketed by Novation doesn't work so well in Ableton inself but it works with most 3rd party plugins used within Ableton. The build quality isn't amazing (knobs and sliders are adequate but very "plasticky")...

Re: Akai MPD and MPK pad mods - tips for better pad sensitivity

I just did the mod with my MPD26.. It's somewhat different in that there seems to be heaps of screws to take out and you also have to remove the 6 bolts from the encoders before the insides will move and the pads can be gotten to. It's not an easy job at all but I'm really pleased with the results h...

Re: New SLMKII Automap Template for Live

Hi,

Thanks for putting this together, I've been waiting for something like this for ages!

Thing is, I've followed your instructions but nothings happening..

I'm wondering if this might be because my automap version is 3.5, could this be why?

Cheers

Jimmy

Re: Lightning: 60s oil lamp projectors

Hi,

I have one of the Mathmos ones.. they're great for a bedroom or somthin but not really suitable for stage use.. unless it's a really small stage?

The best projection from one is around a 6 foot circle.

Hope this helps,

Jimmy

Re: The Automap 3 Mixer Control petition for Live 8

I'm afraid that automap support for live is dead with the launchpad, which to my surprise doesn't use automap to communicate with Live. Could we have a word from ableton about this ? Have you seen the Novation beta site? http://beta.novationmusic.com/ The recent Automap 3.4b2 apparently.. "Fixed is...
