Live performance- midi controller to drop loops in/out

Anyone have any recommendations for a relateively inexpensive controller to be used primarily for dropping ableton live loops in and out in a live performance situation? It'll pretty much just be triggering loops, muting loops, changing scenes. Nothing crazy. Was looking at -M-Audio Trigger Finger (...

I just restored my friend's Korg M500 ('Micropreset'). Some tard had beaten it up pretty badly then used housepaint to try and cover it up. So I sanded it back, puttied it up and resprayed it. looks awesome. AAAANYHOO, I WISH I'd taken a photo of the circuit board. It was INSANE. I've never SEEN so ...

Kawai F1r sustain w/ Alesis Fusion- not working

My friends gave me a kawai f1r sustain pedal to use with my Alesis Fusion for my birthday- the dude @ the music store apparently assured them that it would work with the fusion. However, I can't get it to. Plugged it into the sustain pedal input and it didn't work. So I thought maybe I had to set up...

hematurge- I think that for a sweet little hip/trip hop live setup the AN would work well inspite of this shortcoming- like you said, its not the whole thing going silent, just the start of the synth pattern when changing patches. I don't listen to much hip hop, but to me it seems like this problem ...

Yeah, I've said it a thousand times, they really f**k up with the loopfactory synths. Don't get me wrong- they're AWESOME, compact little bastards. But if they'd eliminated that bug, and just had a slightly better sequencer- even just one with higher step resolution and maybe a few measures longer- ...

Yeah the first note drops out of the new pattern WHENEVER switching patterns- even when the patterns are chained together in song mode. Also, its not related to the processor being overloaded, as it will happen even if you've got just that track running with a single note playing. It doesn't drop th...

I heard cheaper... I'm sure I read from a reliable source that it was $1k or lower. Which I know sounds retarded. But thats what I remember.

I can't wait either. I dont own ANY analog gear, and I was really hoping that this would be my first. Cause it looks absolutely killer.

I've never understood regardless. It irks me when I hear people say it, and it seems to be so common on American TV. It just seems like the "ir" is superfluous... or even seems to render the word a contradiction to its intention. Like "not regardless" or something.

I remember seeing that the other day. so, from memory- two things- is it alessandro cortini (of NIN's latest live incarnation)? That might help with finding out what synth it is. And also, I remember thinking a Buchla maybe, but not sure- I'm trying to load it on youtube but for some reason my compu...

dude, i third the post samples suggestions. really wanna hear it. closest thing I've had is when my m-audio audiophile flipped out once, and everything i tried to record sounded weird and glitched out- so I plugged in my DX-200 and just recorded 20 minutes of dicking around and saved it to chop up a...

String sample libraries (acoustic)

Just got my Alesis Fusion today, but I'm extraordinarily underwhelmed about the string selection. Does anyone know of a company that makes really, really awesome string sample sets? Violins, Cellos, Double Basses, Ensembles, etc. I'm expecting that nothing good will be free, so yeah.

Dano- I think you're thinking of the Peavey Spectrum. Though if it was going to be used by a drummer with no clue about synths, I'd go with something with a friendlier interface, like the aforementioned Boss SP series samplers, to be honest. They aren't rackmountable, but they're straightforward wit...
