[Prog Trance] Greg Nicot - Lag (160kbps mp3)

Hello Everyone. Just about finished this track which I think will be the last trance tune I do for some time. After this, I want to start producing more tech-house type tracks as that is mainly what I'm listening to these days. Anyway, this is a prog-trance tune, its took me a while to get it soundi...

Simpler has LFO's which I like to use, Impulse doesn't. Impulse does have that stretch effect though which can be cool.

Really they should combine the different features of the two instruments into one because at the moment, you must sacrifice one feature to use another whcih seems silly.

I'm just discovering instrument racks!

I've only just started to actually try out and learn about the racks in live 6. Before now, for my drums, I would use a simpler for each drum sound and obviously this would create a lot of tracks and clutter up the session view. After 5 mins looking at the racks, it seems I can build one big rack wi...

help me find that classic thread.

There was a thread on here sometime ago where someone was talking about wanting to do an uninstall of a reinstall to reboot the unnstall etc etc. Went on for a lot of pages. I think after a bit, it was clear it was a wind up but it was really funny nonetheless. Cay anyone remember it cause I cant fi...

I must admit that I do think the way it is now encourages warez downloads which will give you the lot for free. Not sure what the solution is but I think they need to review how they sell all this in future

I've wanted to be able to do this for ages, its one of my biggest gripes with Live. The pencil tool is a work around but still awkward. When I click with the pencil tool, it creates an entire step quantized to the size of whatever the grid is. When I deselect pencil tool I'm now left with numerous b...

I find this interesting but I'm probably being really dumb. Can someone explain to me what the difference is between having a step sequencer like this and just using the standard midi clip piano roll that is actually on the impulse channel.

I know it does but I think they've said that without thinking that people who use live technically don't beatmatch. I think they've said it just to make the point of not doing something pre recorded. If they allow someone to use tracktor to enter. Surely that means that they will allow that person t...

I think most of you are mis-unerstanding the post. I know it says about beatmatching in real time but I think all they are getting at is not to record a pre-sequenced mix on a computer but to do it all in real time. Obviously you dont beat match in ableton but I dont think they are saying you cant u...

I know when I first started, I didnt realise that i needed to lengthen the amp decay to full which it isnt by default. Often by shortening the kick, all the bass was removed and I didnt know why. Also i think the filter is on by default with the resonance turned up, which will add a certain brightne...

so say you are recording a mad filter sweep on a track, then you realise it is peaking and needs compressing, so you drag your trusted favourite copressor preset to the track, now you have an extra 8 parameters that need deleting from within that section (bars 2.3 - 3.4 in the example) Clearly a lo...

For Q3 pepezabala should have solved your solution. If you first create an empty clip by just double clicking a empty click slot in arrangement view, you can then set that clips length to whatever you wish (even 6 bars!). Then with the track armed, play the clip and it will record anything you play....

in regards to independant outputs, you need a souncard with two seperate outputs. That way you speakers will connect to the one pair, headphones for the other. There are many to choose from. I personally went for the m-audio delta 44. good soundcard and does what you need. not too expensive either. ...

I might have completely cracked up and dont understand a single post in this thread but this is what I do which to me is dead simple and "I think" would solve your problem. Dont use impulse or any other drum machine. Use simpler. One simpler for each drum sound. So you have one track for each drum s...
