Re: Ableton External Instrument: Hardware Sound Problem

(If I try to mute this channel I get a dry version of the sound minus any effects I have added on the channel) I'm using an Apogee Duet for my sound card. I'd suspect, you're hearing direct monitoring from the Duet. So how do I switch this off/down? Sorry if this is a straight forward process/quest...

Re: Ableton CPU Time To Upgrade?

Hi I think this might be the problem. Just checked and it is a SATA 3 drive. What do you advise that I do? Thanks I am surprised that you don't notice a diference between your external 1TB western digital passport, and your internal SSD. 1 big question: is your 2nd SSD a SATA II drive? because if yo...

Re: Ableton CPU Time To Upgrade?

I could be wrong but I also feel it could be a heat issue. I've read a few posts online about thermal paste issues and macbook pro fans kicking in early on some models of MBP. It seems to me that when the computer has got hot the spikes tend to start occurring. I have installed SMC fan app and Istat...

Re: Ableton CPU Time To Upgrade?

Sometimes the red light flashes also...
