Well amped studio headphones?

I've got loads of studio cans, usually use dt770s, but for mixdowns I'm operating now at much reduced db levels, and theres not enough volume coming through them. Can anyone recommend an adequate enough pair of studio cans with enough oomph cos I don't really want a separate headphone amp

I mean how can you get it to sit properly in the mix as opposed to say minimonsta. is it a touch clinical and sterile. comments appreciated by those who have more t...

Sl mkii and drum racks

Quick question. In drum racks I usually have 16 drum sounds. The sl has 8 pads. Can you you shift so that the 8 pad would correspond to drum sounds 9 - 16 ? Thanx

Live 8 and push

Is push compatible with live 8, or is it just for live 9 ( which would be crappy )

Re: Do you use Soundcloud to promote your music?

Soundcloud is also annoying in that some uploaded tracks sound like garbled rubbish,but when played on all other systems sounds aok. The ruined mix is fine when downloaded, but people are originally gonna hear the streamed mess. Def room for improvement all round, or someone will knock 'em off their...

Ableton live presets and packs ( sample packs )

When purchasing sample packs I always download the wav file. Often there is the option of ableton live packs or ableton live presets or drum racks. Being a bit of a compudunce, I am a bit wary of what they are, where they go, how I open them etc. Please enlighten me. Thanks

nanokontrol2 takeover mode?

simple post, but the pickup function in takeover mode doesn't seem to work with the nanokontrol2. Thus using it to control more than 8 channels is a waste of time as the volume levels jump. Shame cos the mackie control element is good. Am I missing something?
