Hey dear Elektronauts,
I´m planning to finally play my first live Set this summer at a festival.
I have a few questions regarding the Setup.
So far, this is the Idea
- I want to create a backing Track file for every Song I want to play in my set. Within this backing track there are all the elements included, i cant to reproduce live because of several reasons (shit ive done in ableton, instruments i cant carry with me etc)
- The remaining elements (drums, some basslines) are gonna be jammed live over the backing tracks (Rytm,707,303)
Ideally I want to have a 1 hour Backing-Track File in the end, which is basically my whole Set pre-arranged without all the Instruments I´m playing live. So I can simply press play at the start and start Jamming over my Tracks, while mangling around with the OT Effects for the Playback.
To start and test all of this, i ve exported the playback file for one of my songs and loaded it up in the OT. My Rytm is the master clock and provides the Drums, while OT is the slave and just plays back the rest of the song one shot without the drums.
Here´s my first Problem
The Song has exactly 146Bpm and is 171Bars long in Ableton. Ive turned timestretch and loop mode off in the OT still the backing track is slightly out of sync to the Rytm.
- Ive tried to set the Original tempo of the Sample to 146Bpm (Trim/Loop Length is shown as 185,03) doesnt work
- Ive set the loop Length to 171 Bars (trim length is shown as 170.99, Bpm is 134,91) doesnt work
So how do I manage this to work? I´m fairly new to the OT for live use as you can probably tell but i cant understand why it has to be so complicated if Im simply exporting a file with the exact bpm yet the OT cant manage to sync it properly with the rest
That´s it basically, happy if you could help me. Furthermore if I´ll be able to solve this sync problem another question to me would be the following:
Let´s say I have a 1 hr backing track file with all my songs included. They´re all warped to the same BPM in Ableton before i load it to the OT so I can later manipulate the BPM manually on my machines (does this makes sense at all?)
If this 1Hr file is just a one shot, am i able to loop a section in there (maybe with the recorder buffer) ? Would be nice to expand certain parts of my Songs with a loop or to simply give myself a bit time to change the patterns and banks on my other Instruments.
Sorry for the long post, and be patient with me… I finally want to be able to perform my own works on stage and it would mean a lot to me if some of you could guide me where and how to start with it
All the best,
