Re: How to transfer Simpler and Drum racks' presets ?

Does "Collect All & Save" not transfer all the samples to the project? I was under the impression that it did... but it might only do it for samples that you've actually used.

Re: What does ableton do when I playback higher sample rates at:

My understanding of this is that sample rates usually aren't "converted" and played back at the other sample rate on-the-fly, they're pitch-shifted up or down. A file with a sample rate of 44.1kHz has LESS samples than one of 96kHz. As such, squeezing 2.5x (or whatever it ends up being) the samples ...

Poor Man's Schwarzonator... (?)

A friend linked me to http://www.ableton.com/schwarzonator today and it made me realize that I never posted one of my most-used little tricks to the forum. http://michaelandrews.net/wp/?p=273 I made these one boring afternoon a couple years ago. Hopefully someone finds it helpful and it sparks some ...

Re: How to exit live full screen mode on mac??

F11 is to enter/exit full screen. If you don't have keyboard set to use the F-keys by default (and instead have it set to do things like open expose/dashboard/etc) then you'll have to hold down Fn+F11. on new macs this just shows the desktop you need to press fn+ctrl+F11 Regardless, abdelwahabm, it...

Re: Lowering the master level to avoid clipping...

Now what's this alt trick? It allows you to instantly reset the peak metering in the Session View mixer. On Mac I think it's "Option". If you havent seen the peak metering, make sure you pull the mixer section all the way up and out to display things that may be hidden. This peak meter resetting is...

Re: the 'producers' bible?

would anyone have a PDF by any chance... at least a sample or something... I would like to look into this Dance Music Manual myself. I have both version 1 and version 2 of the Dance Music Manual. It's OK... not much difference between the two apart from their arrangement. They're more on the techni...

User Groups

I'm thinking of starting a User Group in my area. Does anyone have advice? Are there any official channels to go through to get Ableton's official blessings? Interested in any information others can share. 8)

Re: [bro] sharing: 8b19 cant upload Flac files

I also encountered this. It wasn't a problem to just delete the unused FLAC file even though Ableton said it was being used somewhere, somehow) but I find this strange. What extensions aren't allowed? I'm assuming that by "compressed" it means FLAC, OGG, MP3... ?

Well I e-mailed support. Hopefully they'll let me know what's up. Thanks guys for the heads-up I completely forgot that I got some of these with one of the packages.

You may transfer your entire Ableton Suite license to another user, but not licenses for single instruments or libraries within Ableton Suite. If you already owned licenses for one or more add-on components and then upgraded to Suite, you may transfer those previously purchased licenses separately....
