drum latency

when i apply some midi drums ( either via ableton drum racks, or plug-in drum synths ) on a tune with a number of tracks, i'm getting latency. But if I create a new set with no tracks, the same drums have no latency. Why does this latency occur only when there are a number of other tracks are laid d...

export audio settings?

when saving to a disc, I'm wondering which export audio settings ( sample rate, bit, dither ) people recommend. I've been using sample rate 48, bit 64, no dither, but I don't know if I should be doing so. Curious as to what's best or recommended. Ta

Re: sound enhancing plug-in

i'm getting good sound results with the aphex, when just chained between audio interface and monitors, but when routed back into ableton ( line 3/4 outs of interface into aphex, back into inputs of interface ), getting bad latency. Any suggestions?

sound enhancing plug-in

just wondering whats the best sound enhancing plug-in ( mac ). I've got a pretty strong master channel set-up, but having messed around with an aphex aural exciter module ( bit too sharp on the highs ), i know i can improve the sonic quality. plug preferred too external.

need firewire interface?

i've hooked up a korg mini kp effects unit to my mac and usb saffire6 audio interface, but am getting latency problems ( even after adjusting in ableton prefs). Question is, is this cos the saffire is usb, or would an upgrade to a firewire eliminate the latency?

external effects latency

I run ableton with a macbook pro, and saffire 6 usb interface. I've hooked up a mini kp effects unit, but am getting bad latency. I tried adjusting the latency in prefs, but it's still noticeable. Is this due to the interface ( do I need firewire), ableton ( 8 ), or the mini kp. Any suggestions woul...

Re: Prime Loops are amazings

Everytime 3phrase posts I get a picture in my head of that scene in American Psycho where dude is flexing in the mirror while nailing some chick. Im not sure why or how that is relevant but figured it was an important addition to the thread. As far as loops go, I dont see why anyone gives a fuck. T...

Re: Prime Loops are amazings

what a lot of snobbery. Use as many loops as you like. They're like ingredients to a meal. Some people put them together, and it tastes like shit, others can make them into a 5* feast. You don't have to farm the land from scratch, when you have a supermarket ( deep ). Do what you like, it's the end ...
