[frs] EIC and Analysis Files - are they necessary?

When the EIC is fully unpacked the samples directory in the Library is about 14 GB on my system. Cool. There are a few .ASD files in there (probably from me auditioning some of the samples) but most are missing. I was wondering if I should run the 'analyze audio' on this folder? I probably won't eve...

Laurie Anderson had a midi-controlled keyboard necktie.

[quote="Gregor"]Hi arachnaut, only as a hint (I won't discuss this here): It is not the proper technique to check the registry directly and it is actually deprecated by Microsoft. The bug you are observing is caused by unclearities and undefined behaviour on the Windows API. It will be fixed (approp...

[quote="blakflag"]If you had 30 frequency bands, then it would be like 30 compressors running plus the overhead of the band splitting. [/quote]

It may be far easier. The mud usually only in an octave or two
around the mid-range - maybe from 200-500 Hz.

A few 1/3 octave bands may be enough.

Live 6.01 (PC) does not know how to find Desktop

I have moved my Desktop to G:\Desktop. When I use the Live file browser to access the Desktop via its built-in bookmark it goes to C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Desktop which is not correct. The proper technique is to check HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shel...

Perhaps an example might make this clearer. Generally, unless one is very careful, adding more stuff to a device chain makes the sound muddier. We try to tame this with filters and compressors or whatever, but in a dynamic setting where the incoming signal can change drastically, this can be hard. W...

Wish for new audo-to-midi devices

I would like to suggest some new devices for Live: audio-to-midi units. The first would generate note-on and velocity midi events from an audio channel. Pitch could be extracted from a simple filtered FFT and wouldn't have to be extremely exact; velocity from the average amplitude over a short sampl...

Wish for timbre controller device

I have a wish for a new device that I can try to describe. This device would do in the frequency domain what a compressor or expander does in the time domain. Where they resist or assist dynamics of intensity change my conceptual device resists or assists dynamics of timbral change. For example, if ...
