Can't get Ableton to see Smexoscope VST

Tried to install Bram's Smexoscope VST, and for whatever reason, Ableton cannot see the VST.

Here is where I DL'd it from. Yes, I have tried rescanning my Plug-ins. also restarted Ableton.

Any ideas whats going on here?

Re: Time tracker for Ableton sessions?

Yeah, thanks – I had found that VST, but being a little fussy, I really find the interface ugly as sin.

Also, it would be preferable to find a Live device that works natively, rather than a VST, but its no dealbreaker.

Time tracker for Ableton sessions?

Ok, so i know about the Tom Cosm 'Work Timer 2.0' – but sadly this M4L device kept on resetting itself each time I started a new session. :?

Is there another time tracking device for Ableton Live that tracks session time, and total accumulative time spent working on a project?

Re: Can I individually send to a return track from a drum rack.

Hey, thanks – I finally worked it out – I had some weird routing that was actually doing something totally different than what I had intended to do.

I worked it out in the end. :lol: Minor bummer that you can only have 6 Return chains within a drum rack, where as you can have upto 12 main returns.

Re: Can I individually send to a return track from a drum rack.

Maybe I'm doing it wrong – but when I have placed the Return Chains in the bottom of the Drum Rack, as per Login's example, the audio from each drum cell in the rack is sending OK to the appropriate Return channel... ....BUT... ...because of the way it is now routed, the audio is bypassing any proce...

Re: Learning Push 2 Resources

Is there a comprehensive online list of ALL Push 2 shortcuts?

I’ve read through the manual, and there is no list.

That would be super handy.

Re: Double/half time, reverse and invert midi clip options

Totally!

Was looking for this functionality today. I don’t have Push in front of me atm, but from memory, there are extra spaces in the screen interface that could facilitate these commands.

Alternatively, SHIFT + (something) could do these functions.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Re: Mediocre Ableton performance on new iMac 2020?

Thanks for the reply. I'm also using internal SSD – not external. (Everything on my HD is from internal SSD) That is puzzling that my performance of loading that particular kit takes SO much longer – especially since our specs are basically identical, and I have even more ram! What is going on here?...

Re: Mediocre Ableton performance on new iMac 2020?

Bottom line is you shouldn't be having trouble... Your iMac is a beast just as mine is... Maybe think of taking it into an apple store and showing them what happens and why it's frustrating. I can't see any reason why you're having issues as I don't have any with pretty much the same spec. Hope you...

Re: Mediocre Ableton performance on new iMac 2020?

The audio driver and audio buffer settings can have quite an impact on Live’s meter, but if you do everything at a 512 sample latency I’d expect it to mostly be OK, unless really heavy duty plugins are in use. For memory, the only 3rd party VSTs this project has is one instance of Pro-L on the mast...

Re: Mediocre Ableton performance on new iMac 2020?

Thanks for your feedback on this thread – I'll look into RAM allocation a bit more.

Re: Mediocre Ableton performance on new iMac 2020?

Perhaps look into performance tweaks but also adapting your workflow to be less frustrating. It sounds like the 128 kit is a major source of frustration for you. Do things run differently when you do not use it? A good point. I will try without it – but the main reason I use 128s in drum rack is to...

Re: Mediocre Ableton performance on new iMac 2020?

So, from all of this, can I deduce that nothing is 'wrong' with my iMac, and that it is actually performing well?

Re: Mediocre Ableton performance on new iMac 2020?

OK, I DL'd Geekbench and got the following: 1270 : Single-Core Score 8774 : Multi-Core Score (The same model on the Geekbench site got a Multi-core score of 8045) Soooooooo.... this means my computer is performing slightly above the average score, right? (presumably this is attributed to the additio...
