I like this graph a whole lot more. I know I've recommended it before on this forum, but here it is again, in all its glory:

Numeric Pad + will increase tempo by 1 bpm
Numeric Pad - will decrease tempo by 1 bpm
Numeric Pad * will increase tempo by 0.1 bpm
Numeric Pad / will decrease tempo by 0.1 bpm

Notebook guys, you may need to turn your "num lock" on to make this work.

Cheers,

might i be so bold to suggest my supatrigga crossfade trick?

which, of course works with livecut, glitch, beat repeat, etc.

i see a lot of people using it (logickal, phat conductor, etc)

here's the link:

Single-knob DJM-800 style filters without MidiOx

Post by cjyetman » Mon Dec 11, 2006 7:05 pm

originally from this thread...
http://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=53660

effect.adg

it was a bit tedious to create, though copy/paste and multi-selection just about halved the time.

the concept of this rack could be applied to many problems. i'm curious what other people might come up with. it also provides a solution to two shortcomings in ableton live.... that you cannot define a curve, that is... midi controls can only effect a particular parameter in a linear way, not, for example, in an logistic or exponential curve... and that you can't listen to a particular range of midi messages for a particular control and ignore the rest. i think that we should petition for both of these features in a future update or version of ableton live.
1. the ability to define the range of midi signals that are listened to for a particular control
2. the ability to define the curve which it effects the control

i'd also like to see what anyone else can come up with as far as emulating effects built in to other common hardware, and if anyone knows of a way to find specific parameters of those effects so that we could accurately emulate them. in this particular rack, i simply stepped up the frequency setting 2 notches for each step(one notch being the smallest draggable increment live allows) so that it increased linearly across the entire potential range. it would be interesting if in the manual, or some other source of information, it defined the specific parameters of the effects so that we could more accurately reproduce it..... or come up with an even more pleasing result. for instance, with the rack i made, the hi-pass side has little audible effect until the knob is almost at 3 o'clock. on the lo-pass side, the effect is audible almost immediately, which means the overall feel of the button is somewhat unbalanced. any thoughts on how to set the rate of change to get the most pleasing result?

Hello! Been trawling this place whilst learning ableton this last week - excellent resource!

Just thought I'd add my two scottish pennies and say I just worked out dragging clips in the arrangement view to the session view selector moves them in there. 99.9% redundant to most of you, but hey!
