Re: Anyway to bypass function key mute in windows 10

But while you may personally find it "useless" there may be 20 others in your place that do find it useful, maybe in a Live setting.

I am not sure you can disable it as it's a default behaviour. Just have to deal with not pressing them.

Maybe the characters used in the filename.

Re: Is it possible to control Ableton with Push2 and Komplete Control S49 mk2 at the same time?

Both KK and Push will be "linked" to your position in your project. This means that both will automatically focus on whatever track you have selected and will act as they do independently on that track. Push cannot control the 8 encoders on KK directly but can access the parameters if they have been...

Re: RAM problem?

Im on PC but use 16GB ram and never an issue but guess it depends on what libraries and instruments you are loading. First thing i'd do is take the guess work out and note down all the instruments you use and the size they need. Keep in mind if you use something like Kontakt then an instrument may d...

Re: Too little RAM

I cannot help for Mac as it it's just harder to do stuff like but on Windows I developed a simple script which I use to launch live that does all my housekeeping such as checking that all my MIDI devices are on and warning if something is not detected, shuts down any process I do not want, opens and...

Re: Midi keyboard keeps playing piano regardless of what I do

Do you have a web browser open at the same time? Could be receiving midi and triggering GM midi instruments (chrome can do this)

If you do not see the master meter in live activate when you play, the sounds aren’t from live.

Re: Ableton needs to be more transparent about it's updates

Most companies don't offer roadmaps of their development because things can change in the industry of computer software very fast and people being the typical beings that they are sometimes take things a little too much as gospel and will have a bit of a meltdown if you decide a feature in the roadm...

Re: how to save a compressor preset and have it remember the sidechain source?

Don't believe you can save the source as the source would probably change from project to project. Just something you need to spend a few seconds to setup I guess.

Re: Ableton Live in permanent installation | Autostart

You could leave your current power on/off solution in place for the case where you have a freeze and want it to completely reboot by the next day. But have a script close Live and then shut down correctly is the best way then just add that to the scheduled task in windows so it shuts down before pow...

Re: Third party plugin preset

No it is not possible to preview presets before you load them within Live You can save each VST preset as an instrument rack to recall from the browser but cannot associate a preview sound with it. Komplete Kontrol is able to do this tho and it is possible to get KK for free if you create a Native I...

Re: How to optimize sound selection?

Depends on what sounds and where... If you have an MKII keyboard then you have access to VST presets and favoriting them within KK. That is the main good feature of the KK software and for VSTs you may have that are not NKS check my signature for where you may find NKS libraries for them. With ablet...

Re: Importing mp3s

yes. But may help to detail how you are trying to import these MP3 files.

Are you locating them in the Live browser and dragging them in?

Are you trying to drag them from your computers explorer?

What OS are you using?

Have you looked through the start of the manual yet for some guidance?
