Re: Weird Ableton vs Media Player problem

my guess is that the media player is set to use a different sample rate than ableton. 48khz is standard for movies so most media players default to that. if you open ableton after the media player it's most likely changing the sample rate back to what you used originally so it sounds normal check th...

Re: New Computer for Live 9 - Win 7 or 8 ??

for studio use, nothing beats a well thought out custom PC. I used to supervise a computer music lab at an over-priced art school that threw lots of cash at keeping facilities "cutting edge." my lab had around 40 brand new mac pro workstations running avid hardware along with live8/logic/protools. i...

I produce but always just DJ when i play out most of the time. like most people when i make tracks i spend a lot of time balancing the levels to make it as perfect as po...

Re: Are "breakdowns" 100% necessary in Electronic Music?

a few short breaks can be good, for deep house you certainly don't need a full on breakdown.

have you checked other remixes on the label to see what the breakdowns are like? If it's a more formulaic label they may look for something like that

Re: Live + 3rd party plugins = FAIL

why not just turn off delay compensation and use a plugin at the end of the effects chain to manually compensate the delay. i understand we want to be lazy and not deal with this, but if it comes to getting work done don't let it hold you back. voxengo offers a free plugin to do exactly this job. pe...

Re: Will a new processor really make that much difference?

i've never used 80 channels but used to run my processor up. i built a new system a year ago and cpu doesn't cross my mind anymore. i don't think i've even heard a drop out once on my main machine
