Closest thing I could think that looks like that is the Waldorf Largo.

I found it. It's the Virus TI Interface. So it's not even a VST. I just heard some of the amazing sounds come out of it and wanted it!

Thanks for looking though.

lol. Okay I have a problem and I'm kind of embarrassed I can't figure it out yet. I want to automate the rate of the OSC from the minimoog in Ableton. Though I don't see the automation parameter and I can't configure and add the parameter in Ableton.


Here is a pic if needed :

Any help would be great!

Goooooooooooooogle is kiiiiiiiiiiiiing! hahah

Why aren't my third-party plug-ins working correctly with Live 8's Configure Mode?

For most VST and AU plug-ins, Configure Mode works without problems. Some plug-ins, however, don't correctly notify Live about their parameters. Here are some potential problems and workarounds:

Certain plug-ins (such as Reaktor and Omnisphere) use their own system of parameter configuration. In these cases, automatable parameters must be set up in the plug-in first and then can be automated in Live.

Certain plug-ins do not send specific messages (called "BeginEdit" and "EndEdit") to Live. In these cases, try adding this line to your options.txt file:

-NoVstGesturesRequired

Please note that with this option enabled, plug-ins may need more time when switching presets.

(For more information about using the options.txt file, see this page.)

Options.txt files for Live

With the "Options.txt" file we offer a way to change some of Live's options for special circumstances. These options are mainly used for developing and internal testing. However, some of you may find them useful as well.

How to use Options.txt

First you have to create a text file called "Options.txt" in the same folder where Live's Preferences.cfg file is located.

OS 9: .../Preferences/Ableton/Live [version]/Options.txt
OS X: .../Preferences/Ableton/Live [version]/Options.txt
Win: ...\Program Files\Ableton\Live [version]\Preferences\Options.txt
Win Live 5: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Ableton\Live [version]\Preferences\Options.txt
Note that on some Windows systems the application data folder is hidden by default. Here is how to make it visible:

Windows XP/2000

Launch Explorer.
Select Tools/Folder Options/View.
Check "Select hidden files and folders."
You can activate several options in the Options.txt file but use only one per line. The syntax is very simple; each option begins with a hyphen (See examples below). If you use the wrong syntax you will get an error message when opening Live.

"Enable Direct I/O" (OS X only)

Enables Direct I/O for Live versions between 3.0.4 and 5 and simultaneously disables CoreAudio. Please note that this option is not available in Live 6 or higher.

Example: -EnableDirectIo

Note: The lowercase "o" at the end is not a typo!

"ReWireMasterOff"

Disables Live's ReWire master functionality.

Example: -ReWireMasterOff

"ReWireChannels"

Number of ReWire channels appearing in the ReWire master when Live runs as ReWire slave.

Default = 16
Min = 0
Max = 64
You must choose an even number of channels.

Example: -ReWireChannels=32

"ReWireMasterBufferSize"

This could be interesting to Project5 users. This option can be use to change the buffer size that is passed to a ReWire slave application. Currently Live use a fixed size of 256 samples. Some ReWire slaves have performance problems with such a small buffer, so you can use this option to increase the buffer.

Note: Be careful, a higher buffer size will also increment the latency of the ReWire slave.

Default= 256
Min= 64
Max= 4096
Example: -ReWireMasterBufferSize=1024

"AsioSupportProcessNow" (Win XP & Win2000 only)

This option is currently only useful if you use an Emagic EMI 2|6 or EMI 6|2 interface under Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

Example: -AsioSupportProcessNow=1

Wow I used to think Reaper didn't have good midi programming but holy craps was I ever wrong. Once I learn all the shortcuts it's going to be smooth as a baby's buttered ass! I'm programming jazz funk and the individual note velocity adjustments is awesome for drums. You just double click to draw a note and drag the top of it down to lower the velocity. So quick for throwing down lots of hihat patterns when there's another hit happening at the same time. In FL to have two midi notes triggering at the same time at different velocities, you have to drag one a bit forward, change the velocity on the bar graph below and then drag it back into place. Changing it on the note in the piano roll (as well as the bar graph below) is so much more convenient.
Another awesome thing is dragging the end of a clip to duplicate it into the next bar. Good for if you want the same thing with a variation on the last beat. You just drag it 3/4ths into the next bar then draw in a new clip for the fill on the last beat.

While I'm in Gush About Technology Mode, I must say that the Scarbee M Bass, Superior Drummer and NI's Elektrik Piano all sound awesome. I don't think I'll ever need a real band again. Detailed programming results in ultra realistic instrument which sound like they're being played by foolish musicians. Remember to program in microtiming and velocity aka "The Funk" so they actually sound like they're being played by a person and not your computer.

Argh. Thanks I'll give that a try. I was searching "Can't automate certain VST parameters in Ableton."

Thanks again for helping me Maurico! You rock!

Whats funny is that this same feature is in Ableton when you double click a note into the piano roll midi map and go up or down for velocity. I found out on accident because a lot of my midi notes were not the same velocity and was thinking "WTF is going on? Son of a bitch..." Now I am more careful double clicking in the midi map haha

Any Logic nerds on the boards ??

I was wondering if anyone knows what will happen if i attempt to update my cracked version of Logic Pro 9 ??

I found a torrent that came out a while ago that removed the serial number and converts your license type to a "volume license"... so you can update... haven't been able to get it though, any insight ??

thanks.

Why don't you just stop stealing and buy it? Do you realize that every time you steal something you sacrifice your independence as a man? That's because whenever you steal something, you become dependent on the productivity of your victim, whereas your victim does not need you at all. How do you think those programs get made? Do you think they grow on trees? People had to work to make that program, it is property that has come to exist as a result of human achievement and effort.

Man cannot live by means of force. Man can live only by reason. And whenever you initiate force against another man, you are declaring in that instance that you do not care to live by reason; you have chosen the method of animals.

If you still do not understand what I mean, consider this: Man is a conceptual being. In other words, to acquire knowledge, he must use abstract concepts to identify common elements between particulars he encounters in reality. Moral principles are just another example of a concept. These concepts pertain to your goal of existing as a human being. Since you cannot survive by means of force alone, it is evident that you should always use reason; because that is acting according to your nature as a man. Of course, since there are so many productive individuals in the world, you can probably live a long time by means of force, perhaps even your whole life; but if you do so, you are denying your own identity and rejecting the life of a man...and furthermore, you cannot flourish that way (and you can never achieve happiness, by which I mean complete happiness: that is, that state which results from the successful achievement of non-contradictory values).

^^^All that crap belongs in the "whats on your mind" thread haha

Anyways if want to update it then try it. If it fails, well then you can always revert back and install the version you have.

I made myself a new work station out of an ikea kitchen countertop... tis dooooooope! really wide... 73 inches.



all the wires run through the frame underneath and the back so it looks clean. plus my soundcard and external hard drives are also built into the frame. Had to do it this way so it didn't look bad out in my living room. I didn't like the look of a bunch of shit out all the time.

I'm gonna hang the external monitor on the wall when I have a little bit more time. I bought a black Zuo media chair to match and I'm still building compartments below to fit my stuff.

Here's what it looks like with my stuff on it right now. It will improve.




A friend of mine is also building bass traps right now. He's going to start a small business making them. I'm gonna get a couple... I'll post pics of those too.
