Re: Ableton Live/FCB1010 Midi Mapping Problem

hi rithers,

the clips have the same warp settings once recorded as I've already set the warp preferences. What is the "Pitch" warp function? And I can't use MidiStroke, I'm on PC :(

somehow I have feeling it's to do with my preferences on the Live. What should I look out for in settings when I wish to sync up recorded tracks?

oh the FCB1010 DEBACLE!!!!!!!!  you folks know it ook me 6 months to effectively program that thing to have 10 banks of CC messages on the same channel!!!!

if your loops arent synching up in Ableton but are in 'the real world',    perhaps the clips have different warp settings  once in Live?   i dont think  they'll loop unless warp is ON, 
and if youre using the same BPM as the original, probably use the "Pitch" warp function so as not to add artifacts or CPU bog. 
ive found MY FCB to be a bit unreliable when directly mapped to Live, but works perfectly when MidiStroke is running.   Its nonsense, but if i have FCB tell Midistroke to send Keyboard messages, 
its unstoppable.   

did that make any sense?

Hi Travis,

Thanks for responding. Actually I just discovered that it was a midi cable going out from my PC into the FCB that was screwing things up. Removing it solved the problem immediately.

However I now have another problem (it never ends) where my various audio recordings do not sync up. However when I play back different audio clips stored on my PC, they all sync up when played back in loop mode. Would you have any idea why this is so? I've been searching everywhere on the net but found no answer and the manual doesn't talk abt my problem

As shipped, the FCB includes a bunch of MIDI messages assigned to each
button (to control the Behringer guitar/bass amps).  You'll want to
zero out all of those before you try to use it with something else.
You can do this manually, but you'll have to do it for each patch, or
you can download the FCB editor and pay them $15 and do things in a
less labor intensive manner.

The FCB "reset to factory presets" function doesn't zero everything
out, in case you were wondering.
