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.


i have sound forge, but every time i set the tempo to a certain bpm, and then import onto ableton, ableton changes the tempo

well, if you just double click on your sound file once you load it into ableton, youll notice a little think saying warp, just click it so its not yellow and viola, youre file is unwarped, also, on dropping the tempo, could you be more specific on if you want to maintain the same pitch or are you going to make it lower pitched to match the tempo

nevermind i think i solved the problem by right clicking and choosing one of the warp options. i was wondering though, do acapellas have to be the same pitch/bpm as the beat your putting them with?


time to go play around with the whole electronisounds house definition bundle i just downloaded

it depends, some most acapellas you can warp but if theyre too slow/too fast, you can just unwarp and chop

FUCK iMacs...

I bought a new Aluminum iMac for $3,200. 24", 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM and 1TB of Disk Space. The entire premise of getting this is to produce music with it.
Not for pictures, not for DVD watching, and not for porn (well from time to time maybe) but solely for music production.
I tried installing Pro Tools 7.4.2 and there's an error that unexpectedly shuts down the program. Hmm..
I bought another copy of Windows XP Home Edition so I can run Adobe Audition, Fruity Loops 8, and Sonar 7 via Apple's Boot Camp.
Freezes every time when I attempt to install it.
I just took it to the so called "Geniuses" at the Apple store and they said it must be my installation disks that are the problem.
Oh yeah, well I came back with the disks and we tried installing them into other iMacs in the store. They worked fine. So my $3,200 iMac is all fucked up compared to these shitty 20" 2.4GHz, 1GB RAM iMacs demos that have Windows running on them..

Power is nothing if it's incapable of doing what they claim it can do.
Goddamn, man. Buyer beware. I'm serious. If you buy an Mac, BUY the extended Warranty. Otherwise they will butt fuck you with no lubricant after that 1st year and you're pretty much dead in the water.

Yeah, but they have to guess what the fuck is wrong with it.
"Maybe it's the optical drive" - Apple Store Genius
"Maybe it's the a Hardware failure in the system environment" - Apple Expert from the Apple Care Center
"Maybe it's the graphics card overloading and preventing the installation" - Apple Specialist from the Apple Care Center.
"Perhaps it's the Windows XP Home Edition disk being corrupt" - The same
genius from the Apple store.
Which BTW we already proved that this wasn't the case since another iMac
loaded the Windows CD.

What a hassle. I wish they'd just replace the whole machine but everyone is
just quite adamant about trying to fix it even though it's still within the 14 days.
They're gonna try to replace the optical drive first.

One ASSHOLE specialist told me this: "Apple doesn't guarantee you that
Windows will work with your Mac. We provide you a tool (Boot Camp) that will
allow you to function Windows but it is out of our hands if it appears that
everything in the machine is running okay. That's like you buying a Ford
Mustang and you going out to switch out the stereo and it not work with your
Mustang. The car still runs fine and everything else is functioning properly but
a third party's product isn't guaranteed to work with your Mustang."


I responded "Yeah, I can understand that but... you know, if you came to my
Lemonade stand and I told you that my lemonade is made out of fresh lemons
but I actually pissed in a cup and had you buy it, you'd feel a little betrayed
that I claimed they were fresh lemons. You wouldn't wanna buy a cup of piss if
you knew you weren't gonna get what you paid for, you know? Unless you
like drinking piss, I don't."

But I really think Apple gave me a gallon of piss.

He said that was entirely irrelevant and just referred me to someone else after that.

haha thats a crazy response, i dont think i have the skills to come up with that when your in the moment

can your mac read cd/dvds at all? can you play music and movies and burn? if not then its probably simply just swapping out the cd/dvd drive.

in my opinion, the only thing macs have going for them is their exclusive programs and fashion image.

If you've ever had a PC used by a bunch of family members that might not be in top form on the computer stuff and have had to try to clean up spyware and trojans you'd probably understand.

yeah i know what you mean i know people like that too. but people think its so hard to have a clean computer even though its as simple as getting firefox, running an updated virus scanner, and not going on random porn sites. and that saves you about 400 dollars in price hardware wise when it comes to macs. its worth having the knowledge....

Well, I can be an asshole to strangers sometimes and I do have sass mouth
which is why I just say stuff like that. And spending alot of money on garbage just
makes you pissy already.
The Mac does play DVD's and it has ripped/burned CD's. So I don't know.
Maybe that's why they're guessing so much. But I figured Apple isn't very big
about the idea of putting Windows into the Mac. I'm sure they're like "Fuck it!
But check it out, you can still learn how to use OS X instead! Huh? Huh?"
An eye for eye, Apple.
I'm downloading Logic Pro 8 Studio.
Suck on that, Apple.

What I fucken hate is there smugness. They act like they are Apple. "You're
wrong. Obviously. You're not wearing a bright Baby Blue color shirt like I am. Oh,
there's something wrong with your Mac? No, it's probably just you. Sir, we're 10
notches higher than Best Buy's Geek Squad. We're super trained in Apple’s
Cupertino headquarters. It's impossible for us to be wrong. We invented Apples.... sir."

Okay, that's the last time I talk shit about Apple. I gotta... vent.
I'll give it another chance since I am only 1 month into using it.
