Can Analog Four or Analog Rytm be powered from battery?
Elektron support answers:
“If the voltage goes below 10V the analog electronics will stop working but the OS still runs down to 6V. Max voltage is 15V but only for a short time so don’t push it.”
So 3 cell Lipo works just great. Don’t forget low battery alarm!
Apple’s Logic comes with plenty of nice loops. These files are stored in “/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/Apple Loops for GarageBand”. However the files are in .CAF file format (Core Audio File). OS X comes with tool to convert these files, called “afconvert”.
To convert the files to for example AIFF (which is supported by Ableton Live) you can use command:
afconvert -f AIFF -d BEI16 infile outfile
You can find a script to batch convert all files from here: https://gist.github.com/1073217
MainStage 2 comes with plenty of nice samples (with the Jam Pack extensions which can be freely downloaded within the application). These files are stored in “/Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Instrument Library/Sampler/Sampler Files”.
To get the milliseconds between bars when you know beats per minute, calculate the pause:
pauseTime = 60000/bpm;
