Max 4 Live 64bit - Object help not working

So I upgraded to ableton 9 and max 4 live 64 bit. I have everything installed and the devices work. If I right click an object and click the help button, a demo of that object is loaded like usual. However, the audio does not work for these help files. I've tried a bunch of them and no audio is outp...

Re: Is that +62dBFS headroom a really really bad idea?

Bearing in mind a lot of the technical stuff can become seem occult to the newcomer, my advice is : The magical headroom is a safety net, not a foundation. Try to keep all your meters out of the red, try to keep everything in the safe zone, and all will be well. Live does have a lot of headroom in ...

Re: Is that +62dBFS headroom a really really bad idea?

I know you don't get what I'm talking about, go read. http://www.cirrus.com/en/applications/app/detail/APP25.html the twos complement values are normalized to whatever output standard you're measuring to, which can be integer values or numbers between -1 and 1. Two's compliment numbers are integers...

Re: Is that +62dBFS headroom a really really bad idea?

not quite. outside of Live, in hardware, with DACs and ADCs and AES receivers/transmitters, your soundcard etc audio is transmitted as PCM which is in a 24 bit 2s-compliment format. the OP should read Tarekith's guides a little closer, maybe Tarekith can take some time to write a few words. I belie...

Re: Is that +62dBFS headroom a really really bad idea?

I recently logged on to this forum intending to ask some newbie questions to do with gain levels, metering and clipping in Live. I held off as I figured it would be sensible to check out past threads and see what I could find that was relevant. So this past week I did a crash course thanks to this ...

Re: I give up, Ableton, I really do. PDC/timing/hardware issues,

ok, so where i'm coming from i guess, is that for every one of those categories, i know of decent, zero-latency solutions. so i don't see why this couldn't be possible in live. not only that, i don't have a lot of expensive plugins, and among the list i've measured, i have very few that would even ...

Re: SKRILLEX EQUIPMENT REVEALED!

Guys I got a great idea. I'm gonna go download synthmaker and create a saw/square oscillator that's volume is controlled by an LFO! We're gonna make millions! That sounds awesome! But people won't buy it without an awesome logo. What do we do? Fuck it, just jack the waves logo. But you gotta edit it...

it's all releative ain't it? depending upon whose posting any one of those features is the most important, game changing, deal breaking, needed last week, needed it last rev, but other DAWs have it, "screw you guys. i'm going home", feature ever...

Re: Live 9 - Export as mp3?

Pretty sure this is because of licensing issues. Although the workaround is pretty straightforward.

Export from Ableton > Import into Audacity > Export MP3

Re: PDC poll

Maybe that's just a difference in personal style then If it sounds good to me, I'm happy with it :D That's nice. However, for some of us these issues prevent things from sounding good. Personally I tend to use a lot of effects and it's not uncommon for me to use an FX Rack with multiple FX chains p...

Re: LIVE 9 : PDC IMPROVED OR NOT ?

What surprises me is that at one point in this ongoing discussion, there was an impression that adding PDC for automation and tempo based effects could possibly require a code rewrite. No dev said this outright, yet is was part of the larger speculation. Maybe they just haven't gotten to this part ...

Re: LIVE 9 : PDC IMPROVED OR NOT ?

Thank you for that! So if instead of PRO-Q/PRO-C you have EQ8 and Auto-Filter for example and then throw on the VolumeShaper - no delay? I tried it with EQ8 and Auto-filter and I didn't see any delay. I guess it's just with third party plugins. I also tried it with some other third-party plugins to...

Re: LIVE 9 : PDC IMPROVED OR NOT ?

Please...I too would appreciate an explanation of this PDC problem and how I can recreate it. As I understand it, if I don't use too many external plug-ins I'm fine? As in, stacking Live effects has no effect on delay? I'd recommend checking out the post I made on page 3 with the picture. That shou...
