    Default Link Ableton to vinyl turntables

    Hi

    This is my first post on here and I'm hoping somebody can help me.

    I'm wanting to link my Ableton up to my mates vinyl turntables. i've been looking at the Red Sound Soundbite Micro and wanted to know what people thought of this piece of equipment.

    Would this do the job?

    Or what other options are there?

    Thanks in advance.

    In Virtual DJ 7, you can set up ableton as a rewire slave to one of your decks. I'mlooking into this (very slowly) at the moment. It means that one of your decks can control the transport of Live (start/stop/tempo, etc...)

    I'll be trying it on a 4-deck VDJ skin, where I''ll use 2 decks for timecode vinyl, and a 3rd deck for the Live set.
    DJ'ing: 2x1200MK2, DJM 850, Dicers, F1, Zomo MC-1000, Sony MDR-v700, i7 Win 10 HP Envy
    Production: Ableton Live 8 and a mouse, Sennheiser HD400, Sony VAIO

    hi

    thanks for your replies.

    serato defeats the object as we are wanting to use his vinyl collection.

    we want him on the decks and me using loops and samples, plus the effects.

    anybody else have any ideas?

    You could route the send/return of the mixer to you're ableton soundcard.

    I don't quite know how to work it out on the software side of things, but its definitely possible.

    redsound micro would work - but I have heard you have to really babysit it and keep it on track.

    I'd man up and just match it manually. It's vinyl - you have pitch control, and Ableton has tempo control.

    Have you tried mapping pitch controls?

    @jprime - lol yeah maybe i do need to man up!

    to be honest, i've seen Spektre doing something similar but with cdj's (using normal CD's)



    i'm sure there must be some way of doing it without having to manually match loops up to vinyl.

    the hunt continues...

    The wav-tick software link I sent you works a treat, been messing with it all morning syncing and looping Traktor and Ableton to the audio signal from iPhone.

    Yes its expensive (now) .. but the "demo" is free to use so long as you aren't making money out of it.. no doubt it'll come down to a reasonable price if they can get it on the app store.

    Give it a shot.
