Re: Novation LAUNCHPAD: OLD dedicated controller for Live!!!

Does this subject header work better for you sporkles? Imo the biggest challenge to daisychain the LP would be the limitations of notes and channels available. This is about 128x16 channel. Daisy chain would require a lot more. I would love to have More user open than 2 !!! Good idea though I'm not ...

Re: Novation LAUNCHPAD: new dedicated controller for Live!!!

iPad = $500 + whatever those apps cost

I picked up a used launchpad for $50, and I'm programming my own patches in M4L... but that's beside the point.

Does anyone know anything about daisy chaining two launchpads?

Re: Novation LAUNCHPAD: new dedicated controller for Live!!!

What ever happened to daisy chaining multiple launchpads? I've scoured the internet, and have come up empty. Even Novation has nothing on this. The only video I found shows how to connect two launchpads to separate USB ports. Why there is a video for something as easy as that makes my mind boggle, a...

Re: Plugin windows DISAPPEAR when I select a different track!

Well... Live is an extraterrestrial DAW... of course it needs to phone home. This is also the reason you'll find a slew of threads here which advertise circuit bent speak and spells.

Re: when will i be able to use 3rd party VST under rewire ??

This has to do with the limitations of Rewire, which is developed by Propellerheads (creators of Reason). It is unlikely Ableton will be able to do something in this regard.

There are other work-arounds however:

Directly access the Live API.

If you have the extra cash just lying around, I say get it. No one will stop you from learning both applications... except maybe yourself. ;)

Re: Personal dilemma Traktor Pro to Ableton Live

...there was no way I could generate a MIDI device that Traktor Pro could see to send the external sync to Live 8 with; this meant there was always a discernible and troubling lag from Traktor to Ableton.(sigh). Just a quick note: As of the last Traktor Pro update, you can no longer select/activate...

Re: Personal dilemma Traktor Pro to Ableton Live

Routing externally will introduce the most latency. I'm using Soundflower, which I do believe is mac specific, but there is a more universal option in Jack: http://jackaudio.org/download I've even heard Jack is better than Soundflower, but if it ain't broke... What I do is set Traktor's output and L...

Re: Personal dilemma Traktor Pro to Ableton Live

Agreed... just use them both. You can even use them in conjunction with each other. I have this very set up, minus the omni. For live gigs, I route audio from Tpro into Live to take advantage of Live's effects. It's great for recording demos/mixes too. If you make a mistake in Traktor, simply go bac...

Re: LIVE and Traktor w/ Launchpad on one Mac laptop, possible???

I forgot to mention you also need to turn Track ON in Live's MIDI preference for the Launchpad's input, otherwise it will continue to appear as user 1 mode isn't accessible. The thing to keep in mind about the Launchpad is that when it's connected to Live in the intended manner, the buttons no longe...

Re: LIVE and Traktor w/ Launchpad on one Mac laptop, possible???

User 1 mode will still send MIDI information with Live running, but you'll have to route the Launchpad through Live to get it into Traktor. First, make sure your MIDI preferences are set up to send/receive MIDI on the Traktor Virtual MIDI inputs and outputs, both in Traktor and Live (it doesn't matt...
