Lost racks & instrument upgrading to 9

Hi
Upgraded from 8 to 9 over the holidays and within 9 I don't have my impulse & simpler instrument I made. I don't have any of my instrument & FX racks accessible.

How can I get them back?

Re: turn off the gui of vst plugins?!

You can click on the triangle symbol to unfold delay's parameters next to the preset save symbol. Here you can just have the controls you use selected. I do this a lot these days and wonder why dev's even bother with gui's. Other option which will deal with manual commands is to make an effect rack ...

Re: Do you use not updated/discontinued plugins?

I put semi redundant plugins in a VST archive folder elsewhere just in case I need any of them if i am uploading an old projects rather than deleting them. Keeps my normal VST folder to a selective working minimum without having to make too hard choices.

Re: Where are Ableton's preset+rack folders kept on OSX?

I would not put the library onto an external drive. When this drive is not connected and you open Live, then Live will create a new empty library at the default-location. This might have happened in your case, not sure tough. Thanks for help pepezabala. Seems crazy to not be able to have ableton li...

Re: Where are Ableton's preset+rack folders kept on OSX?

After fresh install I made a new location for library on external drive, put all the original preset folders in the ableton/library folder but when I fire live up and click on instrument rack, scale or any other ableton device there are no presets, no saved racks, nothing. This is why I am asking we...

Re: Where are Ableton's preset+rack folders kept on OSX?

THanks for reply.

I have successfully enabled the new location for the samples however I do not know where to put the preset folder i.e. the folder with presets for impulse, simpler, instruments racks, all effects like auto filter, scale effects racks etc.

Re: Sound quality: analog vs sample drums

Its a good idea to sample your analog drum machines anyway as analog oscillators are not phase locked. With music that more high paced you will notice the drum sounds inconsistent without a fixed start phase. Also most good sample companies record analog machines through better kit that you would ha...

Re: Is sampler worth getting?

Thanks for the feedback guys. Watched some youtube vids on "how to(sampler)" and was totally convinced to get it.

Unfortunatly my $50 off any ableton product voucher from the korg nano doesnt work with sampler so cant get it :(
Can only use voucher with live 8, 8 intro or suite now. Gutted
