Re: Fan noise on macbook pro

Something weird and wonderful has happened! I booted up the problem mbp today to look into lowering frame rates, switching graphics etc. I thought I'd boot up Ableton one last time to see what the cpu load was and how long it took the fan to kick in.... No fan....I loaded up some intensive projects,...

Re: Fan noise on macbook pro

Thanks for this info.

No I'm only using Live 9 suite. What you're saying is a major reason for wanting to stick with Live 9 and Sierra - I don't want to buy a new mac!

Video frame rate - I'll search this out.

Where do I get Intel's Power Gadget? Is it an app store thing?

Many thanks for this

Re: Fan noise on macbook pro

I've just Googled this...

Is the point that the integrated graphics uses a lower spec of graphics - not good for gamers but okay for people who want to run Ableton?

Thanks

Re: Fan noise on macbook pro

Thanks for the reply

Do macbooks use an integrated card and a plug in card?

The gfx utility - is it a download thing? Is it made by Apple?

thanks for your help

Re: Where is the NI Community drive content stored in Ableton?

Thank you for your reply. I opened NI Access during the install but there will have been a message during the install then that says where all the samples and one shots are stored?

I'll go and have a look.

Many thanks

Where is the NI Community drive content stored in Ableton?

Hi there I have downloaded the NI community drive thing to use in Live 9. All I seem to be able to open are a few patches (by Peaches) for Massive. The community drive offers "loops, samples, one shots for use within Ableton, Logic..." Where is all this content stored within Live? Is it stored withi...

Re: How do I downgrade from High Sierra to Sierra?

Hi there

Thanks for the reply. Yes it does indeed seem unlikely that an SSD should cause fan noise. I'll have a look at threads and report back when sorted.

Many thanks for your help

Re: How do I downgrade from High Sierra to Sierra?

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes I was able to use my TM drive which has put it back to Sierra. It took 7 hours to load on! now I've still got the fan noise kicking in . I thought this was as a result of upgrading to High Sierra but it seems it's down to something else. Would having an SSD install...

How do I downgrade from High Sierra to Sierra?

Hi there I'm running the Live 9 suite on a 2012 MBP under Sierra and it works well. I recently bought a 2011 MBP that I want to use as a backup machine and hopefully link to my 2012 MBP. The 2011 machine originally had Sierra on it. A computer shop put an SSD in it for me but they have also changed ...

Arturia v collection reinstall in Live 9

Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere... On my mac I have the Arturia V collection (version 7) running in LIve 9. Yesterday I got messages about the synths now only being able to load in demo mode and needing to be registered. This is all very strange as I registered it 6 months ago. I am won...

Re: using 2 macbooks with Live

Many thanks for your replies everyone. Lapieuvre, the only midi gear I currently use is a Novation Launchkey 4 octave midi keyboard (synth plug ins) and a Novation launchpad for triggering clips. These currently connect to my existing MacBook via usb. Are you saying that if I have the 2 macs connect...

Re: using 2 macbooks with Live

Hi Mangrove

Yes this also crossed my mind - having 2 identical machines in case 1 packs up at a gig.

Would all this be done by using time machine to copy all Ableton data and plugins to the second machine? I don't have to do all this manually, I can do it using time machine?

Many thanks

Re: performing a song live

Many thanks for your reply. I haven't tried it yet but I can see that this will definitely work. The speech starts at the beginning before any loops etc come in. I saw a video about this and like you say, remove the stop buttons. After posting yesterday, it then occurred to me that I hadn't actually...
