Set glitched out but no CPU spikes?

I played a live set this weekend in the desert (high heat and wind) and my ableton set started to glitch out after an hour of playing. I am on a Macbook Pro with 8 gb RAM, plenty of disk space, Ableton 8.2 32 bit, and a focusrite saffire soundcard on a buffer of 512. What was weird is that in Ableto...

Re: Help! Nearly all Ableton's native effects causing clipping!?

While all of your posts are relevant, the problem at hand has not been addressed. I have stated before that this is happening when levels are at -6 db. Please read carefully: The problem lies within the ableton effects. For example: When I load an ableton instrument, the levels will be at -6 db. Whe...

This is getting ridiculous! I can't eq anything and my mix sounds awful because of it!

Re: Help! Nearly all Ableton's native effects causing clipping!?

As for ark, can you explain why an auto-filter that is CUTTING away frequencies has a higher output than its input? Resonance (aka "Q"). In both your screenshot of EQ Eight and of Auto Filter, you are cutting away frequencies, but you also are putting in some resonance which is actually increasing ...

Re: Help! Nearly all Ableton's native effects causing clipping!?

Ugh, you guys aren't reading carefully. The vintage warmer has nothing to do with this. Notice how the output of everything is fine until the effect is in place. Is there anyone with actual experience that could chime in? As for ark, can you explain why an auto-filter that is CUTTING away frequencie...

Re: Help! Nearly all Ableton's native effects causing clipping!?

Here are pictures of the problem. First is no effects added. Second, third and fourth are the problems with the flanger,EQ 8 (note the increase in volume when it is being cut), and autofilter. http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/ae92/dubzILLa_photos/BeforeEQ8.jpg http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/ae...

Re: Help! Nearly all Ableton's native effects causing clipping!?

Can you create a very simple example and post a screen shot? Meanwhile, I'll just observe that Live uses floating-point computation internally, which means that every channel can go well into the red (60 dB, IIRC) without causing clipping. It's only the master output level that you have to watch. O...

Re: Help! Nearly all Ableton's native effects causing clipping!?

Doghouse, this is abnormal behavior. If I am high passing a track with EQ 8, typically it will decrease the volume, yes? Well in this case it is increasing the volume and sending the channel output into the red.

Help! Nearly all Ableton's native effects causing clipping!?

So I have never heard or seen this before. I bought a copy of Ableton 8.2 (not suite) about a month ago. Just recently nearly every effect that I throw on an audio or midi track is causing clipping!! The prime examples are EQ 8, EQ 3, auto filter, flanger, phaser, etc. Now this even happens on a mid...
