This is a tough one because there are some really well-executed moments of R&B&IDM on here. It's a rational split-the-check division between what you'd expect out of Jimmy Edgar and Machinedrum. But....these collabos. Something in my sclerotic brain begins to shut down. I really want to believe that's it not just being white and old--they're just not that great. I can't shake the feeling that this album is more about a showcase to attract production opportunities? Dunno. Can't reach the $9.99 purchase threshold just yet although "Team Effort" slaps.
Maybe somebody can shed some light on the following issue, it's a weird one and quite annoying.
This is what I'm doing:
Drumrack with 16 instances of a max for live device into live external instrument plugins sending notes and midi cc to my Machinedrum.
I'll make a nice boring 4/4 pattern using push, all fine and dandy, now add some per step automation, everything is ok but of course the automation needs to be shifted a bit because latency/pdc/etc issues, so the automation is shifted a bit to the left. Now weird things start happening, everytime I send a cc to the machinedrum live's timing starts slowing down. I twist a knob, there's a bunch of lag in the pattern, and it catches up again, doesn't matter what cc is being sent or on what channel.
To make sure I wasn't going crazy I added an LFO in live controlling one of the parameters of the m4l controller device, timing goes completely nuts, it seems to sort of pulsate in time with the LFO, it's like space and time are melting...
If I delete the clip all is well again, I can jam out a new pattern on push, add some automation and then after a while control of local space time continuum via midi cc is regained.
There's no midi loops going on anywhere, and besides this issue midi timing/jitter on my current setup has been pretty great.
Probably there's something super obvious or simple I'm missing but I haven't gotten that far troubleshooting this issue yet, sort of expected it would be a known bug or something but I've searched to no avail (possibly due to lack of searching skills).
I'm using live 10 on a not super old mac. The m4l device is a slightly modified version of the Machinedrum Haters device (added level control, removed a few things), used midi monitor to check if maybe I was accidentally sending extra cc's or whatever to the md but don't see any weird things. It's as if the cc's are eating up all the available bandwidth but this seems unlikely with just 2/3 parameters being automated.
Also; why I mentioned shifting the clip envelopes's timing; it doesn't seem to happen until they are adjusted and also unlinking and linking the clip envelopes seems to help?! Completely lost here.
