lob43 posted a topic in POD HDHi, We would like to know if it's possible to synchronise the loop tempo of the pod with the session tempo of Ableton Live ? We used the midi input of pod but the tempo wasn't right (120BPM in live / 119.8BPM recognized by the POD) and the loop didn't keep synchronised... Any ideas please ?
AndreGM posted a topic in POD HDHello, I'm trying to fully integrate the PODHD500x with Ableton Live so that I can use the "Looper" device in Ableton, because I want the master clock to be Ableton so that my loops are always in sync and in the right Time Signature depending of what track I'm running. So to clear some info about my setup. I'm already sending and receiving MIDI from Ableton through the POD. At this moment I can send program changes from Ableton to switch presets and banks in the hardware. Also I can even control specific devices in the Hardware, like for example sending Midi to the POD to activate FX and Modulate the Expression pedals. So this chapter is working like a charm. What is missing though is a way to use the Looper in the POD to control Ableton Live's Looper. So at this point I'm already sending MIDI to Looper. The way I've managed to don't have the POD's Looper over Ableton's Looper was to turn the playback volume of Looper on the POD to 0. This way I can only listen the Looper from Ableton. Now the biggest problem arises from the button behaviour in the POD itself when the looper switch is Activated. Because the REC and Overdub (as also the the PLAY and STOP) use the same Switch (alternately) mapping it to Ableton creates a problem that involves having to press twice for the Switch to do it's defined midi function. So the way I have it set up is by using 6 Switches. a) Switch #1 (FS5) - REC a) Switch #2 (FS6) - PLAY a) Switch #3 (FS7) - OVERDUB a) Switch #4 (FS8) - STOP a) Switch #5 (FS1) - UNDO a) Switch #6 (FS2) - CLEAR But for this to work as a normal Midi Looper too this buttons need to have an option to work as momentary and only send one CC event. So my suggestion is to have an option in the Hardware itself to "Bypass the Looper's Switches functions" (making all the FS switches "MOMENTARY" OR "NOTE") so that If anyone wants to use the Looper function as a MIDI CC's it won't be limited because of the way the Switches Work in the POD. Let me know what you guys think of this :) Thank you Andregmendes.com
thomaswhudson posted a topic in POD HDI picked up a HD500x yesterday and before i was using a focusrite sound card. I got rid of it so i could just use the pod to do the interface part. i have a question though. I can hear everything and all that, so thats not a issue. What is an issue is i can barely hear the drums i have programmed in Ableton live when i am trying to track guitars. My guitar is PLENTY loud. Any ideas on adjust levels like that? I have the volume on the track all the way up on the drums.
Hi, I heavily depend on my pods ( XT Live, Farm, etc.) for production and live performance, having used both software and hardware at shows. Recently I decided to just use Pod Farm 2.5( as plugin) to perform as it makes more sense for me creatively and logistically and while working on the setup I encountered the fact that Pod Farm 2.5x does not respond to the midi learn function when used as a pluginâ€¦ Stand alone works fine but this is a little inconvenient since it is much more effective for me to be able to work on my tones on a recorded dry signal in context ( I use stems in Ableton Live ) while moving on the roadâ€¦ Of course I can record on Ableton, work on the tone, save and open in stand aloneâ€¦ but this limits my possibilities as well as adds extra time which in a hectic soundcheck even a second counts. Pod Farm 2.02( plugin) on the other hand works as it should in regards to midi learn but the GUI shows up "broken" which is not good for performing. It looks like the midi learn function on Pod Farm plugin has not been working properly since 2.51 and we're in .56 now I suppose I'll have to use it stand alone but I'd appreciate any help or info as to how and if this issue can be resolved. Many thanks! ps. is the same in OS X Mavericks and MOuntain Lion.
