In the previous article I walked you through one approach for getting information from Live out to a controller using M4L and some remote MIDI routing. In this section we’ll look at how we can use the Live API to fully integrate our devices into the Live environment.
The world of controllers has evolved quite rapidly since I started using computers for music back in 2009. The choices are almost endless, and you can get your hands on almost any configuration of knobs, buttons, sliders, and even touch screens. Along with these controllers, integration options have evolved right along side. There are complex… Read more »
In the previous articles we discussed how to setup effects racks using parallel chains to process incoming audio in different ways. Hopefully those discussions proved useful and were able to help you generate some new ideas, but we can take it a step further. What if wanted to process different parts of the audio differently?… Read more »
In the previous article we discussed using effect racks and native Live devices to build a complex and flexible parallel audio signal processor. Effect Racks are a fantastic way to build devices like this, but they also excel at creating a variety of effects that can be used in real time. When creating effects for… Read more »
Let’s talk about Effect Racks in Ableton Live. If you’re a seasoned user, I’m sure that you know about racks, and if you are a relative rookie, you should get to know them, and know them WELL. Arguably one of Live’s most powerful tools for both setting up creative effects and crafting useful utilities that… Read more »
