Re: hum/noise when charger is plugged into laptop

I also have this problem; it has to do with the ground on the laptop's PSU. For now I'll be using my lappy w/o the PSU when mixing in Live; perhaps I will eventually get a device like the one mentioned above to fix it. BTW, I'm using a NI Audio 4 DJ as my interface and, so, I can say that the hum pr...

Is this how most of you use EQ when DJing w/ Live?

As a newbie to DJing with Live, I am trying to figure out the easiest method for mixing two tracks together. Specifically, I am curious about the use of EQs. Would you say that the most common method for DJing with Live is the following? -Two channels (one for track A, one for track B) -put an insta...

Re: Can one use sends or route audio in the drum rack sub tracks

I know drum racks as a whole can use sends/returns, but what about the individual instruments/sounds within the drum rack? When I expand the drum rack to see the meters, routing options, etc. for each sound, I can see no send/return knobs...

Audio Kontrol 1 Users: What do you Map to the Buttons/Knob?

Hey guys. I plan to pick up the AK1 soon for DJing with Live 7. I'll be using a Remote SL Zero as well. I'm just wondering how you guys typically use your AK1 during your live sets. In particular, if you use a MIDI controller then do you even bother mapping anything (either inside or outside of Live...

Re: switch from mac to pc> sony vaio or toshiba satellite pro

I've been looking for a laptop to use for playing with Live; I believe I've decided on the Toshiba Satellite L350-OLG: http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?sku_id=0665000FS10120280&catid=25316&logon=&langid=EN 17in screen, 320gb hard drive, 4gbs ram, etc. I found out that XP c...

Re: VISTA laptop for DJing with Live?

Damn, after browsing the NI forums it looks like some folks have had problems with Vista and the AK1.

I'm going to contact Toshiba and see if there is any way to get XP drivers from them for the laptop I'm after.
