While we notice when sound files are low quality, most people (particularly the top 40 crowd) won't notice or care. I try to use 320 when I can, but if it's simply not possible, I don't sweat it too much. I just EQ it a bit to keep the bass from muddying things up too much, and I usually bring up th...

Anyone want to sell me Ableton Live 7?

Hey folks,

I know I want to get into Ableton, but I'm trying to find the software at a low price, as I have to go to a lot of weddings in the next two months. If anyone's looking to sell their Ableton let me know. They'd have to beat the "Lite to Full" upgrade price of $389.

Let me know!

Justin

I'm using my Audio 8 DJ and I'm getting some funky noise issues - I'm not sure why. May be a ground loop - I'm sorting it out. I'm also using an MPK49 and it's working out pretty well for me so far, but the pads kind of suck. Turns out the pads don't suck, I was just hitting the note repeat button ...

I just got the MPK49 - it's my first keyboard. I like it well enough. I'm still learning my way around it.

I feel your pain. While I got away without any student loans, a lot of my friends are getting crushed under them.

I like it for the sixteen memory presets. I don't know any other device that beats it in that respect. Some people hate the pads, but I only use them to fire clips, so it's not a big deal. Enigma, on the other hand, makes me want to shoot myself in the face. I threw the MIDI Learn preset into all si...

The US has something like a single digit percentage of the world's oil supply and uses 25% of the total oil output of the world. We've been fucking ourselves (and everyone else) for years. India and China's increasing demand is very relevant, but we ignore our own consumption at our peril, and the w...

I've got an old Numark DXM06 DJ mixer that was my first mixer ever. I've got no use for it but I can't bear to part with it.

Ableton not seeing the sliders / knobs on my MPK49

Hey guys, Has anyone else encountered this problem? When I use the MIDI map in Ableton, it won't see the sliders or knobs on my MPK49. It sees the keys just fine (I can play the Instrument Racks without any problem) but the sliders and knobs aren't working. They're not muted - the MIDI signal is bei...

Their packs are $12 each and have great sounds.

Also, learn the ins and outs of simpler, it's a beast.
$12? That's unreal.

Wow, thanks for all these recommendations guys! That puremagnetik thing looks AWESOME. And way more affordable than the Ableton suite.
