Re: Ableton Live not ready for prime time

Well there's your problem. Update to the latest version at least. That would be 8.1.3. But I recommend skipping that one and go straight to Live 8.1.4b3. What you're running is about a year old. http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=144842 Well, they say nothing about the bugs I found in any...

Re: Ableton Live not ready for prime time

Ha ha, can't blame this on windows or dell but that's certainly a fair guess without any other info! Sorry, that was the 3am version. Here's the rest: dual 2.6GHz Macbook Pro, 4GB ram, 48GB SSD HD (system+apps), 500GB SATA HD (data) (2) MOTU 828mk3 audio interfaces (16 digital inputs from Apogee AD1...

Ableton Live not ready for prime time

This has got some really serious bugs in it. The midi controlability is really ambitious but the basic audio engine needs to be redesigned from the ground up. This program has the ability to run for hours without issue and then turn around and completely crash and quit. It actually quit while record...

HELP! All plugins just stopped working!

No idea what I did. I simply open up a session I had saved that was working perfectly. Now audio just passes through the plugs like they aren't there. I see signal on the meters coming from a delay plugin but there is no output. A compressor on a channel acts like it is bypassed. edit: Found the bug...

basic automation question

OK, the manual talks about the recording channel automation. Only 'auto record' and 'auto off' are mentioned but nothing about how to change modes. Where is this automation control? I'm looking for the automation mode switch to change between: auto read, auto record, auto touch and auto off. Touch m...

How do I enable the use of a USB MIDI controller over ARD

OK, this is more of an Apple forum question but I'll try this here anyway. I'm running Ableton Live on my Macbook Pro and I'm controlling the MBP with my little Macbook running Apple Remote Desktop. OK - all well and good. Full keyboard/trackpad control. The problem is that when I plug my uc-33e con...

How do you select a quad or 5.1 output bus?

I'm not finding the option for a multichannel bus (4 or more channels). I specifically want quad (4 channel). And yes I rtfm but I can't find it!

issues with uc-33e controller with ableton live

This should be easy... Setup in preferences was very straightforward. I click on midi. I see the little light flashing when I move a controller. But... So far only the main fader on the uc-33e moves audio-1 track fader and nothing more. The midi window is supposed to list the controllers but it's em...

Re: Anyone using an iPad with ARD to run Ableton on a laptop?

Yes - see my last post. My MacbookPro is a dual 2.4, 4GB, 48GB SSD HD, 500GB HD and the little Macbook running ARD is a dual 2.16, 2GB. The wireless network is my home router. I guess the question would be if the iPad is capable - if not it would be a useless joke wouldn't it. Time for a demo at the...

Re: Anyone using an iPad with ARD to run Ableton on a laptop?

Well, I'm using ARD on my Macbook to control my MBP running Live. Sort of a proof of concept kind of thing - I'm not buying an iPad unless this has a good chance of working. I get a little latency but not unusable. 20 channels 24/48 with SSL channel on each plus 2 delays and a Lexicon verb on 3 auxe...

Re: Plugin windows DISAPPEAR when I select a different track!

Thanks. re: rtfm comments... for the record, EVERY single feature in this program that is required for the most basic mixer ever considered is either disabled by default or buried in preferences. Then, non standard stuff like "clip" indicators where the inserts go and so on... This is starting to lo...

Plugin windows DISAPPEAR when I select a different track!

When I have a plugin window open (the plugin window itself - not a mixer window), it will DISAPPEAR when I select a different track! This is obviously a show stopper. It's critical that I have multiple plugin windows open from multiple channels at all times. Where is the setting for this?

And I do mean wirelessly. How's that working out?
