Re: Live 10 Performance Test

I looped it through the whole track and you're right, the back end of the track definitely asks more of the computer than the first bit. I got around the distortion problem by dropping the level on the first group before I started creating copies. First time I didn't do that and I couldn't tell if i...

Re: Live 10 Performance Test

Can you make screenshot from the later part around Bar 39-40 how big CPU usage is there? Here you go. I couldn't quite catch it but it does momentarily hit 85% on the indicator - no pops, crackles or drop outs at that point though. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-bDMqsVR/0/9e8a9ad7/X3/i-bDMqsVR...

Re: Direct Experiences: Ryzen 3900X or i9 9900K?

I'm happy with my 3900X. I did have a lot of issues trying to get my MOTU Ultralite Mk3 to play nice with it though and eventually gave up and reverted to an old Focusrite 2i4 that I have. Works flawlessly with that. The MOTU was temperamental even with my i7-4790K though. In terms of performance th...

Re: Live 10 Performance Test

]1. Ableton Live CPU Meter % with the Live Set for the Lesson – 19% 2. Maximum number of playback tracks? – somewhere between 494 and 511 - I used the same technique as garyboozy - couldn't be arsed finessing it in between those two numbers. 3. Laptop/Desktop? Make/Model? – Desktop Home Brew 4. Oper...

Re: Choice of CPU for new computer

There are a few test results out there. Not against the 10 series Intel Extreme and it was done when the 3900X was the best Ryzen out there. AMD released higher performing CPUs that are a lot better than the 3900X as well - but they cost a lot more. http://www.scanproaudio.info/2019/07/12/amd-ryzen-...

As of 10.1, a fix to repeating CC's being filtered also means Sysex now properly works on a single track sending and receiving.
That's great news. Will have to go back and re-jig my Emu sampler device.

Re: Bitwig 3. Wow.

Does Bitwig support sysex any better than Live does? Live's ability to communicate with hardware via Sysex is really poor. You can really only do it via Max which is such a clunky way of having to do it. And unless things have changed over the last year since 10 came out you have to chew up two chan...

Re: I updated to Preditor 2 and apparently shared my story

8 knobs isn't enough. Can't you do 8 banks of 8, ie 64? I have a Behringer BCR2000 that I haven't even set up yet, so maybe only 8 is enough for me... :lol: You can - however I've found that I prefer having a hardware interface where you have closer to knob per function rather than paging through b...

Re: I updated to Preditor 2 and apparently shared my story

I've given up asking Ableton for what should be standard functionality. I had a request in Centrecode, but I was told by support it wasn't something they'd ever likely do - the guy I was dealing with seemed surprised I was upset.... PrEditor is ok - I have it the original version but you shouldn't n...

Re: Can't play chords Diva or Repro5

Perhaps this might be the problem?

If you're using the audio unit version of the plugin. Try the VST version.

Re: Implementation of SYSEX in M4L

One tip to watch out for - if you need two way sysex you cannot currently send and receive sysex on a single track. You'll see in my example I have two M4L patches. The second one just sits on a second track with Monitor In set waiting for return sysex from the sampler and then uses a send object to...

Fill yer boots.

Patch isn't pretty as it's a work in progress and I've spent zero time cleaning it up (and I'm a beginner), but it does some of what you're trying to do for the K2000 for Emu EIV samplers.

Re: Importing ".k25" Kurzweil 2500 sample libraries

OK I created a k25 file from a wav and then converted it back into a NI .nki file and I can play it via Komplete Kontrol in Live. I ran into what looks to be a bug when attempting to convert from any format directly into a Simpler/Sampler file format. I've logged the bug as it looks to be a trivial ...
