Laptop spec requirements

I’m in the market to buy a new MacBook that I will use for live whilst I’m traveling. I’ve been looking at the MacBook Air as a lightweight solution. Has anybody got any experience running live on a MacBook Air? I currently have a 2011 MacBook Pro with plenty RAM and an SSD that works great but it’s...

Komplete kontrol midi keyboard integration

I've been looking at getting a komplete kontrol keyboard. I own komplete and so it looks appealing. How well does it integrate with live? It's been out a few years now so hopefully people can offer their advice.

which midi controller

I'm looking for a midi controller with a matrix of rotaries/knobs that will allow me to control a large number of sends per channel (5-10) and also the 8 knobs of a device in a rack (so maybe 16 rotaries in total). This is so that for a selected channel I can control the sends and the 8 device macro...

Mouse and keyboard recommendations

Can people suggest a mouse and keyboard for using with Live and a MacBook Pro? Currently I use an apple wireless keyboard and Mighty Mouse but I don't like either and they constantly lose connection. The mouse is also a bit uncomfortable in long sessions. I've been researching gaming mice and keyboa...

Recommend a mini keyboard controller for live

I'm heading off on vacation and need a small controller that will fit in my backpack. My push 2 is a bit too big. What's out in the market that you would recommend?

Re: Syncing push with a machinedrum and analog 4

Could you advise me what is the best way to set all this up so that everything is in sync? Currently I just make songs on the MD and a4 standalone, but I'd like to integrate everything a bit more. So far everything I've tried isn't really working out so any advice is appreciated. Did you have speci...

Help me pick an audio interface

I have a machinedrum and an analogue four that I want to hook up to live and push. My current interface (apogee 1) doesn't have enough inputs. I don't imagine I'll be buying more hardware in the future, so 4 inputs should be enough. My budget is $200-400. Would love to hear your experiences and sugg...

Re: hardware with live

Budget $300-400 On a Mac. I don't imagine getting more devices, but you never know. I occasionally play my electric guitar through my apogee one, so preamps would be handy. I've thought about getting a mixer but am unsure whether that would be a better choice ( would have to buy a mixer and a new au...

I'm looking for advice. I few months ago I bought myself a machinedrum and an analog 4 (see my thread 'abandoning the computer'). These pieces of hardware are great fun and I've enjoyed getting away from the computer - but now I want to start recording them back into live. What is the best way to do...
