ok so i finally figured out how to rewire reason into live. i'm having a ton of exploring all the different combinations and options. i was wondering if someone could point me towards a set up that sounds like jesse's bass in dfa. i've just been digging that sound lately, but i can't seem to recreate it..

I am trying to chop up and make samples out of a disco song but I don't know which software to use...I tried doing it in acid, didn;t work out. I basically just want to sample and then assign them to the pads on my padkontrol.

cut beats out in a simple sound editor such as Audacity.
cut them in parts like 4 beats or 8 beats.

then, import the loops into a program or use ur midi thing.

Also if your starting out and your not willing to put the time into doing things on the computer and your just lazy then time will tell you that this isnt your thing. You have to slave if you wanna be good.

what im saying is, you dont need a controller right now - give it time, you can do everything a controller can do with your mouse. Its like learning to play the guitar on an acoustic rather than electric because it has a harder feel on the fingers. In lots of things you need to persevere and understand things in a different light to fully appreciate that something. Then again what do i know, i cant even grow facial hair.


my recommendation for someone who wants a cheap, but decent midi controller... is get an m-audio 49 key midi controller/keyboard for your computer. its midi and usb. sure its not the best, but its damn good for 100 bucks. its what i started with. i had the keystation 49e, but i think now they have a keyrig 49 or something.

i think the opposite you get a better groover when you use a midi piano controller than doing it by mouse. its like the process of learning to ollie when learn how to ollie stationary then you try to ollie while moving and it seems like another trick all together

If you get a controller you should get one with knobs/sliders. I use an m-audio O2 25 key and it's perfect for DJing with Live. I totally recommend learning to mix and everything on Ableton (or traktor dj studio I guess) before going over to Serato if you want to do that.

If your looking to compose the 25 key definitely isn't for you though.

he layers lots of sounds to get his "sound" I hear. various samples and then maybe uses distortion here and there.
also, i think you might be talking about bit crushing as for the distortion.

i've been going through lots of songs pulling short percussion and drum samples: mstrkrft, marshall jefferson, morgan geist, and a lot more. is there some sort of general opinion on vinyl crackle in short drum samples? for example, i took hihats and a kick from a marshall jefferson song. they both have noticeable vinyl pops. i like the sound, but im wondering if theyll seem out of place and not sit right in a song with other clean drums and instrumentation.

I am having a terrible time with ableton...I really am considering using protools because its really buggin me, but I keep hearing shit about how ableton is so good so I have tried stickin with it.
Anyways, I am having a problem rewiring Reason into Ableton like this guy does: http://youtube.com/watch?v=6PsMjnn9hzc&feature=related
So after opening up ableton, I set up a midi track and audio track like he says and then in the Midi To section theres no option for "Reason".
Also, under my preferences in Ableton, I have the driver type as MME/Direct X...shoulD ASIO be selected instead?
I don't get what rewiring exactly means to be honest.

Rewiring allows you to use both programs simultaneously... you can use loops and samples in reason and also in Ableton and when you hit play they will both play from the same part in the track no matter if you press play in ableton or reason.

All you need to do is open ableton (which will make it the master) then open reason (slave) and you should be in business.

Too bad I can't use it because every time I try either Ableton or Reason crashes. Oh well.
Good luck.

alright please help a newb...


im trying to mix two loop samples on ableton. the thing is im trying to get one sample thats 150bpm down to 121 bpm, but ableton wont let me do it unless i cut parts of the sample out. is that because i'm cutting out so many beats its cutting out the song or what? is there anyway to solve this problem?

thats why i hate of ableton, try and get Fl Studio is way easier to do that then export it as a wav then open it up in ableton. I like fast paced work something that ableton does'nt allow me to do.
