live crashes when moving plugins

I have a Live set where I am recording two tracks of audio and then processing them directly with live effects. Sometimes, when I attempt to adjust the parameters of an effect plugin with the mouse, I'll accidentally click on the white space between two parameters and this will result in dragging th...

geezers like me might remember back to the old live 2 days when they
introduced this clip start behavior the first time:

a similar flame war ensued and the change was subsequently yanked.

I got a pair of the NHT A10 Pro Studio Monitor System for 400 dollars on clearance. They don't have a lot of bass but sound tight and even from 60Hz on up. Unfortunately, I think NHT may have discontinued this model. I also got a chance to mix some tunes on a pair of KRK E8s. Wow. I never understood...

Regarding the Impulse click bug... When I drag a section of audio from the Arrange view, I drag it onto an empty track first, ctrl+j and then drag it onto the Impulse pad. If I dragged it straight onto Impulse I would get a click - now I don't. cheers, RH I noticed that consolidating eliminates the...

what's that?
when you drag a clip from the session view into the impulse, there is a click at the end of the sample.

hey spiderprod,

could you post two samples, one rendered to disk and one recording the master channel?

I've had the same experience as mcconaghy. I've never thought that my tracks sounded any different after rendering.

That's the utility trick? That's one of the oldest remix tricks in the book... usually used to remove vocals. Take the left track and add the right track with the phase inverted.

Who runs a virus scanner with "on access scan?"

I was talking with a friend last night and we think our virus scan software might be to blame for the Live crashes. Indeed, with his computer, which had the same problem, Live takes a half hour to load unless you disable the virus scan.

This is being discussed in the bugs and problems forum

http://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18220

I think it's a Live problem, rather than the fault of any VST. The quick fix is to rename your VST Plugins folder and then run Live. This seems to fix the problem.

Alex,

This doesn't quite explain funmaster's work around. Why is it that when you

1. copy your VST Plugins to a temp directory
2. run Live
3. quit Live
4. put the VSTs back where they started

Live works fine again?

hey raapie, not sure why you're trying to consolidate silence, but... I'm pretty sure that consolidate normalizes the volume of the track when rendering. it then changes the clip volume to approximate the volume of the original unconsolidated version. so when you consolidate silence, you're amplifyi...

How about this? a) use the live demo "Making Music With Live." b) Set the latency as low as possible so that playback works with no glitches. c) Make a new audio track (Track 7). Arm that for recording. d) Put the playback marker at bar 5. Then follow (3)-(5) above. I'm not too good with this "scien...

Shouldn't we set up the buffer size to a specific ammount first, THEN run this test? Perhaps for a different test, but what I'm trying to find is the lowest possible latency for running Live to process live audio. So I'm hoping everyone will make sure that they can actually use Live at their latenc...

Nope. It's for all versions of Live. They moved the preferences folder in Live 4 to

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Ableton\Live 4.0.4\Preferences

The Options.txt still helps.
