ableton live dj mix question shit

Recommended Posts

there used to be a time in life where i could just figure shit out.

that time has passed.

im reading tutorials and looking at shit and nothing makes a fucking lick of sense to me.

 

can anyone give me a brief explanation of how to do this shit? i cant even find something that tells me how to import mp3's. is that even possible, or do they need to be wav's?

 

i dont give a shit about making music with this, all i want to do is mix a bunch of songs together. please help.

seeks from what i understand ableton live works with midi files... and for the brief time i was messing with it I could find an easy way to convert mp3s to midi files. And pretty much since the first time i heard the term MIDI until now MIDI makes no sense and is a STUPID music nerd term the means DONT TELL HEAVY.

 

use serato.

i do use serato when djing live, but i want to make some mix shit while laying in bed. people have always talked about how awesome live is, but so far its just annoying the shit out of me.

MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. Midi is just instructions, sorta like digital sheet music. The soft synths do the actual work. Ableton plays mp3s etc. I've never used it to mix though

was i somehow initially vague?

ha.

 

i want to know which formats the songs must be in and how to import them, so that i can mix them and create a mix cd. i want to be able to match beats, i want to be able to fade, etc. i want to do everything that one might want to do when making a basic mix cd. i do not want live instruments. i do not want extra instruments. i do not want t make my own song. i want to take a bunch of lil wayne, and mix it with a bunch of other shit.

 

does anyone know how to do such a thing?

i just downloaded this.

so i need some help too.

edit: but i figured you can put a song into your session by dragging the file from your desktop/wherever onto one of the audio channels.

how I do shit on a mac:

take the mp3s you want to use, put them all in a folder in your hd

convert them into .aiff files using itunes

in live on the left hand side open the hd and scroll till you find the folder you want, then drag 'em into the main interface bit.
