TIP: Vel. switching and c/f in impulse and simpler

Post by Operator A » Tue Oct 04, 2005 1:57 pm

Hello good people! Time to play around with the built-in instruments some more!

HERE are two demos of using velocity switching and crossfades in Live, on Impulse and Simpler respectively.

The first example uses a bassdrum, three snare sounds and four hihats, triggered from notes C,D and G. As the velocity increases, the snare goes from snare1, to snare2 to snare 2+3, and the hihat G cycle through the four samples with increasing velocity.

The second example crossfades automatically between two simpler patches. depending on velocity, for quite complex sounds.

Have fun!

-And don't worry, we *are* working on new stuff...

Hey operator, nice work.

I understand the concept, and it works just like you say, but could you explain better the velocity midi effect's workings? There's many parameters in there... :roll:

The Covert Operators are working on new stuff now, and since racks within Live 6 pretty much do all the stuff this patch does, but easier, I won't go into too much detail.

All I can do at this point is to refer to the manual. Explaining velocity scaling is nothing, if not tricky. Live 6 makes it all quite a bit easier, for sure.
