Re: Disk overload with new Mac Mini 2011???

Core audio driver as a default - lower latency than NI sound

Hi all, When I select my MBP's own internal audio, the total latency drops to 12.5MS When I select my Audio 2 DJ sound card as output, the latency jumps to 18MS. I checked the driver type and it is defaulted to Core Audio - there is no way to specify NI's Audio 2 DJ driver. Apologies for my question...

Re: Break Beat loop recreation - HELP WANTED!

the link is expired so I can't listen to the actual sample - but someone mentioning too much reverb made me think - what you might think is reverb might actually just be the room sound brought forward with compression Forge: what you describe is what I was clunkily referring to as "airy" in my orig...

Firstly, Garboozy (and others) - my sincere thanks for taking the time out to do this - I am at work, but will definitely give this a twirl tonight (I'm excited) For Oddstep and other who question why I don't sample it - I have and use(d) it a lot in my productions. But I really just wanted to recre...

Re: Break Beat loop recreation - HELP WANTED!

So, firstly, I just wanted to say many thanks for all of the helpful responses - for me, this break and its variants (even Krome & TIme's Virtual Reality on Subplates...for those who care to remember) just make my face tingle - maybe because I was buzzing at the time on all sorts of serotonin overlo...

Re: Break Beat loop recreation - HELP WANTED!

your version is way too reverby, the reverb is both too large and too high in the mix. The reason is you aren't listening objectively - you have focused on what you think is the key facet of that sound and tried to bring it to the fore. Obviously the original beat used a more boxy kick than the pok...

Re: CPU Usage on Live 8 using MacBook Pro

I contacted Ableton Support, and they gave me some steps to fix my problem. It seems to have worked as my CPU usage is back down to between 8% and 15% in activity monitor while idle depending on the set. I would post the steps they gave me to fix my issue here, although they said that what worked f...
