might be a dumb question but how come when i put drums in the Drum Rack, it is noticeably quieter than when i put them on Impulse? i put the velocity levels the same on both, but with impulse, everything sounds noticeably stronger.

also, when putting a sample in simpler/sampler (especially 808 kicks), it plays back extremely quiet, unless i jack up the volume but then i'd be in the clipping zone.

The volume defaults to -12db and the velocity defaults to 0. If the set the velocity slider to 100 that will increase the sample by 12db... which cancels out the -12db gain setting. I guess the -12db gain drop is to make room for if you want to increase the velocity. I suppose you are more likely to want to modulate velocity with midi rather than gain.

It's just a convention.

Hi Maxy, yeah I got Suite 9 yesterday. I have done a review and 15 free Live 9 tutorials. Also done 2 special articles on using Live 9 mouselessly. See my website for all that. You can't miss them.

I got live9 and push yesterday. I've had the beta for a while, and it's a massive upgrade imo. Really looking forward to digging into push

Spent too much money on other...things, so Push'll have to wait for a while. Will probably get the upgrade to 9 in a few days, though...

I had to same problem. Lucky for me, in adition to having no money, I also have no impulse control ^^

My lack of impulse control has led me into buying a few more synths and yet another guitar, even though I did know this day was coming up fast :D

I upgraded to suite Yesterday and I've had the beta for sometime I'l definitely check your vids. I have been loving the audio to midi and the curve automation is incredible.Groups within groups is also new I believe? I just noticed that today I might be crazy but a magnificent add on if so.

Groups within groups is something I've been wanting for a while, didnt even know it was implemented :D Really looking forward to this.
I'm usually a pretty messy person, but when it comes to my sets I just love some structure, lol.

Did you guys new about the complex fading sistem in the new ableton live 9?
You could control the volume and fade of a sample to it's microest setion. I think it;s one of the most cool featurs in ableton live.
