Re: Live 9 Performance Test

Yes, you are right. All the cores were used. But we are not sure if there was highest cpu performance during the test. Maybe there is Unix check from the Terminal or application for current frequency rate? I can guess that turbo was not used. It seems it was at 2.8 Ghz and not at 4 Ghz. For example...

Switching scenes without cutting

Hi, Why Ableton cutting audio effects (drops) when switching scenes? Is it possible to keep some audio effects playing until the end (if loop mode is off)? Can anyone suggest me good option here? I have many drops prepared for my production. Do you think is it better to cut clip in to two parts - wh...

Re: importing and then exporting mp3 - does it affects sound?

Thanks guys. Maybe I was not very clear. I want to prepare mp3 tracks for mixing by adding some extra loops at the beginning and at the end. For example: <extra loop><--------------original mp3 track-------------><extra loop> Is it affects original mp3 track? Approximately, how much when doing it wi...

importing and then exporting mp3 - does it affects sound?

Hi,

If I move mp3 file to arrangement, set track volume to 0.0db and then export will this affect the sound?
What about normalize function, khz, peaks?

For example if I want just extend the track what options do I need to choose to keep original part not affected?

Re: Ableton lagging - Is this one core for one track issue?

Generally speaking, with Live it gets problematic when you're reaching 450-500% in osx activity monitor. But it can vary a lot depending on what plugins are used. That's what I observed by doing tests,though, but I've never reached such high performances in real scenarios even on very large session...

Re: Ableton lagging - Is this one core for one track issue?

About racks, do you mean layered sounding? Yes, layering different instruments. Or effects, or making weird crazy signal routing (tip : have a look at compressor, or gate, sidechain. Turn on the little headphone button and choose a signal source... yes, this way you can pick any signal from anywher...

Re: Ableton lagging - Is this one core for one track issue?

How to detect cpu usage for each track? I see in activity monitor usage ~240%, but project a bit lagging. It seems that one track wants more than one core.

Re: Ableton lagging - Is this one core for one track issue?

I agree about for e.g. operator, but feel lack of effect plugins. I like to modeling sound with Trash, Ozone, Kontakt fx, some impulse reverbs.

Re: Ableton lagging - Is this one core for one track issue?

8G. I have splitted my drum rack into 3 tracks - much better.

But I can confirm when you use high quality plugins you can reach 400% and you just need to refuse some of stuff.
