    Never mind! I just figured out the record button I was clicking was not the record button I was supposed to click. Thanks for the help!

    If by "bass line track record enabled" you mean "armed" w/ the red indicator or clicked and highlighted on the specific track, yes to both. I may not have had the record button going as you asked, so before I did, I played with the MIDI and it makes sound, I hit the "record" red button above the tracks and it starts the drum track, but when I hit the keys this time, it shows up as red in the left column on the grid (where it shows keys being pushed) but produces no sound nor placement on the grid. It still work with the mouse, though.

    When I push the play button on the specific line and it starts the drum track - this is what my video told me to do to start the recording input, so I tried it again - I can hit the MIDI and it makes noise but does not record, same as last night's post. Only when I hit the record button above does the MIDI stop making sound as the drum track plays, as state above.

    Is bass line track record enabled? Further more, do you have the record button selected on the top of the screen? This is most likely your problem- report back.

    My name is Kevin.

    I am currently building a a physics-inspired motion controller iOS app and I need your feedback on this.

    I love controllers and have seen much of what's out there - but so far, have not seen anything like what I'm creating.

    My product is called Sonicwarper.

    It allows you map physics-inspired motions to MIDI controls in an interface that looks very much like a DAW.

    Sonicwarper supports a library of motions (do check it out at the beta user sign-up site link below). For the purpose of this post, I'd highlight 1 of its motion - "Elastic" - which lets you stretch an invisible rubber band in mid-air and map it's distance, velocity and/or acceleration to your MIDI controls.

    As mentioned, Sonicwarper's mapping interface looks like a DAW. In a DAW, the horizontal axis would be "time", and the tracks would be audio clips. In Sonicwarper's case, the horizontal axis could be "straight-line distance", and the tracks would be MIDI mappings.

    1 possible use case:
    You could add a sequencer track that triggers 6 guitar notes in an open chord to the straight-line distance track, and a graph track (which looks a lot like an automation track in a DAW) to the velocity of the notes. Effectively, you could "strum" your iPhone in an air-guitar like motion to play an air guitar. Like a real guitar, the velocity (rather, the loudness of the notes) can be adjusted by the angle of your strum.

    You can also use Sonicwarper as an aftertouch device, while playing your pad or key controller in the other hand.

    I am looking for interested beta users at the moment. I hope to chat more with interested DJs/electronic musicians on how you may use the product, so as to steer Sonicwarper's vision. I also hope to learn more about your music and how you make them so we may develop better products for you guys.

    Do check out the beta user sign up site at -

    Do sign up to the mailing list if you are interested. I'd contact you shortly.

    Also, feel free to post your questions, love, hate, and other comments here. I'd gladly reply them.

    Further, feel free to send me a personal email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

    Thanks for listening :)

  • theruggedcollectivist created a new topic ' MIDI Controller and sound input' in the forum.


    I'm new to Ableton (and music production in general) and have begun using my MPK Mini to make basic tracks and to learn to use the software. I've been following a helpful video series I found online that currently has me using the MPK to input - I believe this is the right word - some notes for a bass line. The controller is connected and working, but when I try and input notes over my drum beat, the indicator lights up and it makes the appropriate sounds, but doesn't actually write the note into the grid. I can do that manually with the mouse, but the keyboard only makes the noise without recording the notes. Does this make sense?

    Anyone know why this would be?

How To Approach Promoters, Artist Managers and Event Organizers

Trying to get booked for events when you are first getting yourself into the scene can be one of the most frustrating parts of being an artist or DJ.

When I first started, one of the things I wish I had hard wired into my brain is the fallacy of expecting of an equal amount of response, attention and effort to that of which you put in when you made a submission. A lot of the time you won’t get anything - but it’s not your fault!
