Re: Thoughts quality of Ableton FX? Workflow question.

Same as Chapelier for me. Aside from the quality, you also get tight GUI integration (no plugin floating window to open/close all the time), tight Push integration of course and super tight automation and midi control over parameters, almost zero latency added to your live set, there's also M4L dev...

Re: Thoughts quality of Ableton FX? Workflow question.

Thanks everybody - some really great responses, and a lot of food for thought. 👍 Your comments about integration, and not having to worry about updating VSTs/compatibility/things breaking has got me thinking seriously that this will be the direction I move in. 😎 I already know I’m probably gonna los...

Re: How to use the sample browser as intended?

Wait a sec? They STILL haven’t addressed this (IMO critical) aspect of the Live workflow? Sample selection - and therefore taggging and organisation - is such a big part of any workflow. 🙄 This was the main reason I never quite gelled with Push, coming from Maschine’s excellent tagging and searching...

Thoughts quality of Ableton FX? Workflow question.

So, I’m looking to move my set up to a new computer - and probably upgrade from Live 9 (Suite) to Live 10 (Suite). I’m looking to streamline my new set up, FAR less samples, as few VSTs as possible. Just a handful of tools and sound I know well, and use frequently. Limiting choice, more music making...

Ah cool, this is kinda what I thought.

Just to clarify, do you mean that you can have two copies installed – but not running simultaneously?

Can you run two seperate copies of Live on two machines?

Is this allowed? Or do you have to purchase multiple licenses?

Also, if I wanted to create a mirror system on my desktop machine and laptop, will 3rd Party plug-in vendors permit that, or do you have to buy second licenses?

Re: Best way to reinstall Live 9? (while keeping custom racks)

Thanks Jester McGee – that seems like the most sensible approach, I just wanted to see if there were any preferred methods from those who have treat this path before.

I've got multiple HDDs backing up using Time Machine on Mac, so if it goes AWOL, I'll reinstall from that.

Thank you!

Best way to reinstall Live 9? (while keeping custom racks)

Long story short, I made a bunch of short sighted Library decisions when Live 9 and Push came, and my library is a largely unusable mess. I kind of what to start afresh - but without losing all of my custom racks. Is there a correct (and easy) way to do a fresh install of Live, but keep certain cust...

HELP! No content showing in 'PLACES' in Browser!!!

So, out of the blue, my Ableton Live browser is not showing ANY of my PLACES content: http://i66.tinypic.com/29cv045.png 8O All my samples, and any of my custom folders below PLACES are not showing anything. :( (This content is stored locally, not on an external HD) There is a rotating wheel to the ...

Browsing Q: Back to previous location?

Some thing that really annoys me about browsing with Push, is that if I wish to load multiple samples, each time that I press 'Browse, Push takes me back to the 1st level of the browsing hierarchy, instead of where I was *last* browsing. :oops: Is this something that is adjustable in preferences, or...
