Sample Changing Sound When Dragged Into Audio Track

No idea why this is happening. Never experienced this before. I open up a new Ableton project, browse my sample library and drag the sample into an audio track. However, once I play that sample in the actual track window, it's lost all types of high frequency. There is no type of filer on the track,...

Re: Is this a driver issue?

Really not sure, but I doubt the dude hooked it up with anything but the bare minimum as far as drivers. I did just download the update for my Saffire Pro to make sure I had the drivers for that and everything. The status of the midi thing in the top right corner doesn't seem to be giving any sign o...

Everything appears to be in working order, but I'm getting no response from Ableton when I press my midi keyboard buttons...

Is this a driver issue?

I've always used my midi keyboard with no issues. However, I haven't been using it for the last 2 months or so and today I went to plug it in. Since then I have gotten my computer reformatted. Went to plug it in through my Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 and Ableton is not picking up any midi input. I'm ge...

Re: Cleaning Up A Muddy Bass?

I already posted a link, then responded to your original request by stating that I've posted a link... 8O

If you mean a version with it cleaned up I haven't done that, but I'd rather wait until I add the additional parts instead of just re-posting the short loop with the edited bass synth.

Re: Cleaning Up A Muddy Bass?

Thanks man. I am going to try everything you've mentioned. I've been super busy so I'm really looking forward to this weekend when I get a chance to experiment with all of these different suggestions and see which one(s) get me where I need to be.

Thanks for listening and giving your feedback.

Re: Cleaning Up A Muddy Bass?

Here's another trick - move your bass midi up two octaves and then see how it sits in the mix - once you're happy the way everything sits together you can drop it back to where it was and make a few tweaks to sit it back into the mix nicley. This method just brings the notes out and work out the st...

Re: Cleaning Up A Muddy Bass?

I haven't done any side chain compression or anything like that on this track. Honestly, it was made very quickly as more of an experiment after talking to a friend who does a lot of sampling to make HipHop-esque stuff, something I've never really tried yet. It's pretty bare-bones. I just sat down t...

Re: Cleaning Up A Muddy Bass?

Thanks for these suggestions. I have yet to ever use an exciter and really am not entirely sure what it is yet but I've got a youtube tutorial set up to get the low down on how to begin. That sounds like a great approach, as is all the other suggestions. Hoping I get this squared away shortly! Thanks.

Cleaning Up A Muddy Bass?

I've created this beat, something outside my usual realm. Nothing special, just messed around with sampling an old tune and creating more of a old school-ish hip hop beat. It's got potential considering how little time I've spent so far but one thing I can't seem to fix up is the bass. It's just an ...

Re: Massive Synth Preset Problem... Seems Like A Common Issue?

I haven't updated anything in forever so shouldn't the .ksd files still being working if it were that simple? Any of the presets I created myself are .ksd files and load up fine, but I've downloaded some packs of presets that other users of the same version of Massive have confirmed worked, but some...

Re: Massive Synth Preset Problem... Seems Like A Common Issue?

I guess I was just doing that because when I did that it took me directly to the specific folder where I had all the new presets saved to. But I see that going through your way is a little better. However, even now that I'm in the folder which has the presets saved in it from within the browser view...

Massive Synth Preset Problem... Seems Like A Common Issue?

I open up my Massive preset in Live, go to File > Open Sound and then I'm taken to the file containing all of the presets. I then select a preset to load, double click and BING - "Couldn't load file." They are all .ksd files, seems like it should be fairly straight forward but it never wor...

Re: Annoying, Consistent, Out of Nowhere Ableton 2 Second Freeze

Thanks man, I likely never would've figured that out. I'm going to give that a shot tomorrow as I've got the day off.

Got my fingers crossed, thanks again bro.

Re: Annoying, Consistent, Out of Nowhere Ableton 2 Second Freeze

Not trying to beat a dead horse in this thread here but I'd like to make sure before I buy something else again... Just want to clarify that this ONLY happens in Ableton. All of my audio (windows media player, iTunes, Youtube videos, etc) is all running through the interface with no issues. Are you ...
