Word. I'll order them through work after the Holidays. Probably close to tax time.

I can get a microKORG for like 150 too, the discount is ridiculous.

I hate going to the store and listening to monitors because they I always end up fucking loving the 2000 dollar pair of ADAMs. everything else just sounds way too colored.

when i finally dropped some bills on my mackies, i HATED them for the first week because i thought they sounded awful. then i realized no, that's how fucked up all other monitoring systems are i just wasn't used to em! now i live and die by them.

put the reverb on a return track and turn up the send on your kick! just remember this will make it alot louder then dropping the reverb straight on and twisting the dry/wet knob.

There's a cool little routing trick that fixes that.
Set two return tracks A & B.

In return track A load the "Utility" plugin with preset "Invert."
Open up your Returns Level options( right under the i/o on the mid righthand side of the screen) and right click on A's "B Send" and click enable send. Turn all the way up.


On your B Return track load your Reverb. Now when you send to your Reverb send to A... utility reduces the volume of the original signal and sends it to B... works really well.

yeah i've heard that trick plenty of times before but i think its retarded. its too complicated and defeats 50% of the reason to make a send in the first place.

Dear Todd,

1. It's not complicated at all.

2. You can set up a send for whatever reason you want. So instead of defeating the purpose of the Send by 50%, It actually let's it achieve it's purpose by 100%.

how dare you challenge todd's infallible reasoning? just who do you think you are?

That video's been kiling it on twitter. 90% of Ableton posts are about it. It's pretty rad. I especially like when the cut outs of Prodigy dance on the screen.

I know! it really opened my eyes as to what you can do with some creative sampling. Really breath life into my Queens of the Stone Age collection...

i like to have the return from the kick set one 0 db to a return track, have some good delay and reverb, and then sidechain it to the actual kick itself
i do this with both the kick and vocals sometimes (with the sidechain to its respective source, not both in one return) and i love how it sounds

Wanted to show you guys this: It's not my original concept I have to give credit to wildtek for the concept and nitzua for the wallpaper... i saw this and I though it would be awesome if it didn't look like shit. so i made it into this:


still working out the kinks, and gonna make a mac version later today. Also gonna release the .ai file so people can put their own backgrounds in it.

it was this
