Selling my Ableton 8 Suite & Max

For the Ableton 8, I've found that 99% of the time, I'm using features of the lite edition on my laptop only. I guess it's because I play backup support for live musicians, not really DJ! Most of the time it's triggering a background loop or sample or too. I also bought the Max 4 Live thinking I as ...

Re: VST not showing up

The issue seems to be the permissions in Vista/Win7/etc. If you right click the Live shortcut and "Run as administrator", then rescan your plugins folder, Dimension Pro will show up. I'm pretty sure that miroslav will too (I have Sampletank, which is pretty similar and it worked). You can modify the...

Interesting Podcast Series on Music Education

I'm not sure if all of the Ableton users are familiar with "Pandora.com", but I just got turned on to a series of podcasts they are doing on music education. I'm not talking about the boring piano-teacher stuff you might remember; this was actually interesting (for me at least) They have little audi...

New version of sampletank also available

It's worth mentioning that Sampletank has version 2.4 out there for download. This may help too (it's the version I'm running now).

Sampletank Finally Works in 6.0.7 (for me at least)!

Yes, matter of fact I do have good news still; and one tiny problem.... First Sampletank 2.2 is still working great with Live 6.0.7! But, I also tried to reinstall FXPansion BFD (which I had previously uninstalled) and BFD bombs Live all of the time. This would crash all projects, those with Samplet...

Will do...

I will try to remember to post back after much abuse. It's been about a week now and, thankfully, i'm spending more time jamming than posting about this bug!

Sampletank Finally Works in 6.0.7 (for me at least)!

Sampletank 2.2 seems to be stable with the new Live version 6.0.7. I haven't tortured it to death yet...but had 8 parts going in ST, including a fairly large grand piano loaded up and multi-outs. When I saw the press release about the tour/clinic of "IK Multimedia and Ableton Live" (http://www.tekse...

Sadly 6.0.5 and SampleTank still don't play together well...

Within an hour of downloading the new 6.0.5 (PC) version of Live, I tried (with fingers crossed!) to get a SampleTank 2.1 project going. All seemed fairly well UNTIL i tried to delete a midi track that was pointing to another midi track with ST in it. Bam! Same "Serious Crash....program will shut do...

Worth a shot....

From a technical point of view, the solution does not make sense. When using ST as a VSTi the sound card drive is out of the picture; the host proxies all of that. I.E. The VSTi technically should *not* care what the driver is. That being said, I too am running an 1820M in asio mode and the solution...

What exactly is "Deep Freeze"

I see mention of the "deep freeze" option in Live 6 all the time. I've done 8 songs now with Live 6 and, of course, I've frozen tracks and flattened them. Never seen anything called "Deep Freeze" in any menus, etc. is "Deep Freeze" just a term for the more flexible "Freeze" menu item capabilities? O...

I wouldn't recommend it;

SampleTank crashes Live all the time. not much help from the folks at IK (in fact, NOTHING)

I've been told, don't upgrade to Vista

Since I own a 64-bit processor I thought maybe I'd pick up Vista. I guess I was under the impression that it was 64-bit, but nope...32-bit (unless you wait for the 64-bit version). A firmware systems engineer that works here at Dell Corporation told me flat out; "It's ok to buy a new PC with Vista i...

Thanks for the feedback

I started this quest because SampleTank XL 2.x and Live don't play together well (ST crashes Live like clockwork). Neither Ableton or IK have an answer and it's been months from what I've heard. So, I bought ST for the large library and it would be nice to add my own samples (wavs, .nki, sf2, etc.) ...

Add on "Sampler" or just upgrade my Kontakt?

I read Computer Musics guide to Live 6 and was interested in Sampler. I've always had Sampler hidden to get Live out of demo mode. My basic question is this: Why should I spend USD $199 to get Sampler vs. spending about $150 for the NI Kontakt 2 upgrade (i already own 1.5). I've watched the videos h...

What is that?

What is Independence? I've never heard of that rompler/sampler before.
