Chapter 11. ReWire > ReWire Power

ReWire Power

Using ReWire Slave applications with Live gives you an expanded list of sound sources to create with. Frequently, you may just want to create some audio loops in a ReWire Slave application, record them in Live, and then close the Slave program. The real-time nature of Live lets it load ReWire Slaves, use them, and then close them, all while Live continues playing—without glitches. This makes ReWire a viable live-performance tool since Live’s ReWire hosting is rock solid. Of course, as with all other procedures in Live, be sure to try this out a few times before a show to confirm that your computer can handle running multiple audio applications at once without causing audio problems. You’ll also want to make sure that any ReWire Slaves you’re using are stable enough for live use as well.

Many users flock to Live because of its ability to operate as a ReWire Slave. The unique loop-based and time-compression tools of Live can be used in concert with standard production programs like Digidesign Pro Tools. While Live is feeding into Pro Tools, you can use Live to audition loops at the Pro Tools tempo. You can quickly add drum loops or MIDI parts that remain under user control. You can add Warp Markers to takes done with Pro Tools to fix timing problems. Once all the correct parts are made, the results can be rendered as audio into Pro Tools.
