Re: bitwig on linux

why? I'm a right tool for the job kind of guy. When I get home, I just want to have a pint and let the "OS" do its job, without it getting in my way. OSX just works better for me in this respect. And I still have all my cli tools I use every day. Live(obviously) and other stuff I use is not availab...

Re: Best laptop for Ableton Live - on stage performance

Macbook Pro and a decent USB/Firewire interface. Sorted.

I wouldn't even look at PC laptops personally, unless you want to really splash out on a custom built machine specifically for audio.
Off-the-shelf PCs are a mess these days.

Re: The beast that is Trent Reznor

Reznor seems to use a lot of analog gear, obscure bits of kit and outboard equipment. He especially likes running synths out through mic'd guitar amps for buckets of filthy distortion. Try taking a synth VST and running it through a few distortion effects and maybe an Amp Sim, like Amplitube or Guit...

Re: 8.2.7 is go......

I think we just need to be patient and reserve judgement for when Live 9 actually arrives. There is no doubt that Live 8 has gotten better and better over the past year, at least in terms of stability. My guess, as a software development student, is that the Live codebase was/is in a sorry state aft...

Re: Any programmers here?

Yes,

I'm pretty handy with Java and Ruby, and a bit of C++ and Objective-C.

Re: Bjork "Biophilia"

I downloaded the app and purchased the first available track. I wasn’t too impressed with the graphics, track, or interactivity, just shooting down a wire frame tube and whatever I was doing didn’t seem to have any discernable or repeatable effect on the music. It screamed loosely thought out gimmi...

Re: Ableton Live 8 with Tablets

The only way to know for sure is to try it, but... 1. The Atom processor would be (at an educated guess) very underpowered for Ableton Live. Even a decent Core2Duo can struggle to keep Live running. Maybe with only 2 tracks of audio and no instruments or effects it might be ok, maybe. 2. The Soundca...
