Stylus is so cool. I purchased it about 1.5-2 years back but only really started digging deep over the last 6 months. The only expansion I have purchased so far is the backbeat disc. I am bassist so I love the slap friendly grooves that BB library offers but what REALLY blew my mind was the bonus material included. Man, that distorted reality material is just over the top killer...
Then about 3 weeks ago I was messn' round, staying up on a work night way past my bed time, locking up my laptop every half hour of so and getting generally nutz in LIVE 6.0 with stylus and LIVE's instruments. I got 4 or 5 midi tracks all bouncing off one another's clips, dragging in just about every patch they got. Just sort of improving, improvising and checking out all the cool combos, when all of a sudden the bizarrest thing happened. I believe that I know now what happened but at the time I thought that somehow Stylus was binding and playing simpler instruments! I am still not certain this was not what happened but have never been able to repeat the trick again. It was wild! I am not just saying that the midi "broadcast" on channel 1 was sounding the simpler instruments either, it was ALL and ANY patches I went to in Stylus! What I believe may have happened in retrospect was that I may have been fooled by an audio chorus effect merely glitching' the heck out of all the stylus patches. I am really not sure if it's all as simple as that though because the computer crashed in a very unique way shortly after the phenomena occurred before I could "save the set"
any thoughts other than "somebody lock this guy up!"?
Is it possible for RMX to play other instrument's sounds like an arpeggiator on steroids? If not, has there or is there such a device?
Since our last communications I have been recording midi clips as a bounced (from another midi clip in LIVE) via the output of channel 1. I have also been dragging and dropping files from RMX into midi clips. Why do all these clips that are recorded from Stylus have "straight" syncopation? If I DnD into a clip and then loop the material from that DnD I just get chromatic scale like play back. How can I get the Stylus audio patch interpretation if said midi file in LIVE? In other words, I am obsessing over how to get LIVE to use it's instruments to be driven by RMX. Can DnDing files from Stylus into LIVE ever accomplish this? How about that same scenario in reverse?
