Re: M4L Stability

Hi, thanks Rory. From what I understand, the Max7 Runtime emits better crashdump detail, in the event of crashes. But in my case with the glitching, I am not crashing. So in this instance, yes I'll generate a Status Report and get it to your Support address. For me, it doesn't appear to matter what ...

Re: M4L Stability

Hi, early indications are good here too. Loaded Sonic Faction Sickness (big sample-based m4l synth), Time and Timbre, and Convolution Reverb Pro. No crashes. Things definitely had improved with Max 7.0.3, but this feels better again... I still get Stuttering / Glitching behaviour when multiple m4l d...

Re: M4L Stability

Hi Reimund, you have a couple of options here... You can look at what patches were applied during the last round of Windows Updates. If you're on Win7, go to Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update > View update history. If you want to back out any update, go here: Control Panel > Progr...

Re: M4L Stability

Just a half hour tonight with Live 9.1.7 and Max 7.0.2 on win7 (32-bit), but all worked well. J74 Progressive, Sonic Faction Pulsator synth (memory hungry sample-based synth), and Convolution Reverb Pro, all loaded and played fine. LiquidRhythm needs work to get it to work with Max 7. WaveDNA have g...

Re: M4L Stability

Yep, I use 7.0.2 max Runtime with live 9.2.x beta.
Didn't realise I could use it with 9.1.8 until Fab mentioned it above.

Re: M4L Stability

Edit: Fabrizio, you just beat me to the punch re. workarounds... Cannot say that you are wrong in any way there Daniel. There is a significant issue with M4L, especially on Windows. The three 'workarounds' that improve stability for me (but do NOT fix the inherent stability problem): - Set your Audi...

Re: M4L Stability

Will Ableton take notice and act on this issue if they receive bad vibes on their user forum, hosted on their own ableton.com site?

If yes, then rant away....

Re: M4L Stability

Yeah, these kinds of issue, such things as this do appear to cause instability for me too. I've removed all M4L devices from my default set as a result... I've aggressively disabled a lot of Windows features - from a Windows perspective, I run a tight ship. And before I start Ableton, I kill yet mor...

Re: M4L Stability

Thanks for replying Angstrom. basically "we know about these issues but don't know why it does this" OK Ableton, time to roll up your sleeves and figure out why! While things like Tuner devices and a fix for Push's Aftertouch are important, I'd swap a bunch of features for a stable platform any day..

Re: M4L Stability

I guess the obvious question here is whether there is any installation of M4L with the latest Ableton release or with the public beta on Win7 32/63-bit that has stability...? If there are those with rock-solid Win7 M4L, then it must be something in the configuration of the machine. User tecolo above...

Re: M4L Stability

Well I'm not sure if it's 95% - judging by the poll here viewtopic.php?f=1&t=205944

But I'm not sure the nature of the issues that os x users experience.

The significant issues do appear to be manifested on windows tho, yeah.

Re: M4L Stability

My guess is that they updated Max and Ableton somehow and now it is crashing like hell on win7. Terrible experience.. Yes, I agree, it's been a right nightmare... I've not found any pattern to the crashes btw, and the "Load the basic M4L Midi Device" workaround helps for some large sample-based ins...
