Re: Push not working in Live 10

Glad you got it working. :) Enjoy I got the same problem with my Push 2, "push" logo stuck at Live 10 launch. No red frame in Live session to signal Push2, but in Preferences, Push2 was enabled as control surface. Fear. Hate computers. Etc. I don't know what exactly made it work fine, but here's wh...

Re: Since most people call Live "Ableton" ...

Well "Live" is not aan easy product name as peoples think you're talking about playing on stage. So i always say "Ableton Live".

Likewise, peoples generaly don't get it when I say "I use push on live".

You use ... what?

Re: Live doesn't like my Scarlett 2i4

the way to stop that is before you open live, you have to go into windows volume settings and change the sampler rate from 44 to 48 then back again. or whatever rate you use live on....windows will always reset it to 44 when you turn on you pc....this happens with 2i4 specifically. This is not a bu...

Re: Live doesn't like my Scarlett 2i4

... doesn't Win10 do sneaky things like always accept upgrades and things like that? Yeah well, if you're happy with a reliable W7 install my advice is don't upgrade to W10 if you don't have a need for. W10 is faster, really, but W7 is very reliable. I did the upgrade because of a change of motherb...

Re: Simpler inconsistency in browsing samples

my guess is that Live doesnt allow the viewing of the Categories>Samples directory on Push as that would mean ALL pack's samples listed there, and showing a huge list in Push could get real slow. that's just a guess though. to load a specific sample at the moment, you must either know which pack it...

Re: Simpler inconsistency in browsing samples

Does this help? https://www.ableton.com/en/help/article/import-live-8-packs-with-library-live-9/ Well not realy :-/ Importing previous version packs and or sounds/samples/whatever has always been fine in Ableton Live.

Simpler inconsistency in browsing samples

When adding an empty Simpler into a track, Push2 display says "Press browse to load a Sample". Problem is, when you hit Browse the browser doesn't show the "Samples" directory you can see in Live navigator. But ... my old Live 8 library directory appears in the browser ... and I can actually browse ...

Re: What is a torrent File and how do i open it?

AHAHAH that would be a smart move. In the 90's there was a PC video game called StarFlight, it asked for an anti piracy question at start, related to the games manual. If you replied wrong, it didn't stop you from playing. But after some time, like two or three weeks, you were playing and all of a s...

Re: Live doesn't like my Scarlett 2i4

I made my reply before I saw your message telling you fixed it. Can you elaborate how you fixed it? Also, if I can make an advice, switch your Win 7 to Win 10. I was very upset by the terrible W8 (I switched back to W7), but W10 is much better and it IS faster than W7. Really. And I had no program m...

Re: Live doesn't like my Scarlett 2i4

I have a 18i8 which is not so very different from your 2i4. I found that Live and Focusrite USB devices are very sensible to the USB port you use. Depending on hubs, USB controllers, the time Live takes to find your Scarlett can vary a lot. My advice is that you make a list of all of your USB ports ...

Re: No velocity in step sequencer?

I'm a little late on this topic, but I just realized yesterday the step sequencer use a fixed veolicty of 100 for pads, which I believe is nowhere explained in documentation. For a moment I thought I had a hardware problem, quite weird as real-time recording had the pads giving me dynamic velocity. ...

Re: Help me pick an audio interface

... - 2 with preamps in front, +48V featured (for cond mics) - 2 without preamps in front, +48V featured That doesn't make sense. Why would they add phantom power to inputs that aren't microphone preamps. Indeed all four ins at the front are combo: XLR are for microphones, you can switch phantom po...

Re: Help me pick an audio interface

I think the Focusrite 18i8 is excellent. You'll get the inputs you need: - 2 with preamps in front, +48V featured (for cond mics) - 2 without preamps in front, +48V featured - 4 at the back All 8 are taking balanced/unbalanced jacks with line level. The other 10 inputs are 8 on optical cable entry a...

How about something like this? Akai EIE Pro? I've always thought this unit has great features, lots of connections, a built-in USB hub, 4 effects inserts, MIDI in/out, and an awesome retro look. http://www.akaipro.com/product/eiepro 4 in/4 out, and priced at just over $200.
