Just wanted to firstly say thank you for this device, bought it last night and I can already tell it?s going to be really important for me.

One minor thing i?m noticing is it I can?t import samples from my current project? I.e. if I freeze and flatten any track I can?t add the flattened audio into the device but it seems to work perfectly with any sample in my sample packs dragged from Ableton?s library. I?ve done a bit of a googling and have found out that Ableton freezes tracks at 32 bit and this can?t be changed which might be the issue.

Is there any work around to this? Please let me know as this would be a game changer for me if so!

hey, thanks for using Factoid! I just tried it with frozen and flattened tracks, and it does work for me. Can you send me more details at ? Are you on Mac or Windows? How long are your clips? Which Live and Max version?


Hey, I just bought the program. Everything worked fine until I tried to save then I got an error from Ableton and I cannot open the project anymore. The only Vst used was this one any other things were Ableton stock.
Maybe in the next update add something for pitching elements? It's not a must but it will be a nice thing to have.
