Fried Rice Survey (for final presentation)

Concert Order

Please see below for a concert order. We will try to keep the concert moving by have all three stations (studio laptops 1 and 2 or your own computer) filled with performers at all times, one performing and the others preparing.

If you are not, for any reason, not listed here or must adjust your time on the concert (think roughly an hour per section), let me know ASAP. I have tried to accommodate all desired times, alternate studio and personal computers, and provide variety in the performance. I’m excited for the performance.

Project 2

Hello everyone,

I’m going to use my project 2 as starting material for the final project, but I didn’t share it in class, so I thought I’d share it here. It has a lot of room for improvement, so all feedback (negative and positive) is welcome!


Interconnectivity and network controllers

Below are several examples of the methods discussed in today’s lecture.

1. Ableton Live and Rewire:

2. MIDI loopback devices and the OSX IAC bus with Live:

– On Windows there is MIDI Yoke, part of MIDI OX

3.  Soundflower audio loopback:

4. Open Sound Control

Please download the following items:

Studio B audio fixed AND saving Live projects for upload

Two issues to bring to your attentions:

  1. The audio in studio B was crackling in Ableton Live and I was able to fix it today. Someone had apparently set the audio buffer (how much audio the system stores before having to spit it out) to a very small value. I have increased the buffer and now all audio sounds perfect.
  2. When saving your Live projects (the project folder), it is important that all of the audio files used in the project go along with it. Please use “File–>Collect All and Save” to make sure all sounds, wherever they may be stored on the lab computers, have been “collected.

#2 has an FAQ if you need more details: Collect All and Save in Ableton Live

Free Ableton Live Course

As Cornell students, we have free access to all courses on, one of which is an Ableton Live 9 Essentials course with over 9 hours of videos, and also 1.8 GB of exercise files so you can follow along and practice what you’ve learned. I’ve gone through a couple hours so far and they are really good.  The exercise files are in the downloads folder in Studio B, and I can’t remember where I put them in Studio C, but they’re there (I’ll update this when I figure out where they are in Studio C).
