Re: Push 2 certain buttons not working

Or use a USB-C to USB-A adaptor, available from pretty much any good online retailer. I use one with my Push as well as a variety of other old USB-A thingies, and I have not had any problems.

Re: Curent Lve version ?

As Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote, let me count the ways… Here are a couple which immediately come to mind:
  • At the top of your user account page, just above OS chooser which sits next to the big ol’ download button
  • In the help knowledge base on the page entitled Latest Live Version

Re: Multicore optimised workflow?

From a CPU performance perspective it should not matter if you use one track with an instrument rack or multiple tracks, one for MIDI and several for instruments. The real difference is going to be what works best for you in your live performance. In the one case you have fewer tracks but need to dr...

Re: Multicore optimised workflow?

From the Ableton knowledge base FAQ for multi-core CPU handling : How many threads are used per Live track? Live uses one thread to process a signal path. A signal path is a single chain of audio flow. In tracks where instrument or effect racks are used, with multiple chains in parallel, Live may us...

Re: ableton adds silence to beggining of songs?

I agree that Live could perhaps play nicer with the rest of the world on this, but I do not believe Live is the bad guy here. The MP3 decoding process by its very nature provides a bit of silence at the beginning of tracks. See, for example, the second question on the LAME Technical FAQ . If you are...

Re: where is echo?

As far as I know (which is not much really), Echo is only available as part of Suite and not available separately. That is, I believe that only instruments can be purchased as add-on packs, not effects. Because I have Suite and hence Echo, I am afraid I have never really looked for direct alternativ...

Re: Effects Bus BEFORE Individual Track Effects

.....Is this not possible because once you bus multiple tracks to an effect, it mixes the audio together? Correct. What makes an effect on a return or group track less CPU-intensive is that it needs to do what it does only once for the summed signal, not once for each contributing track. There is n...

Re: EQ Eight's Frequencies Wrong??

Yamaha and Roland, for whatever reason, decided to use different octave numbers. I forget which is which, but one went for note 60 = C3 and the other for note 60 = C4. Don’t quote me on this, but I believe it was Yamaha who went with C3. The DX7, which was one of the early MIDI synths (I bought one...

Re: EQ Eight's Frequencies Wrong??

Sorry, by Core MIDI I meant the core MIDI specifications from the MMA, less the many supplements to the basic spec needed for specific (and often esoteric) purposes. Nothing whatsoever to do with Apple.

Also, I mistyped earlier… The traditional value for middle C is about 261.6 Hz, not 262.6 :oops:

Re: EQ Eight's Frequencies Wrong??

Correct, the MIDI 2.0 spec simply points to the MIDI 1.0 spec for the meaning of, for example, pitch in Note On/Off messages. So no (new) help there. As for the Wikipedia entry, it is correct in what it says, but what it says only applies to General MIDI pitched instruments. I somehow doubt that ver...

Re: EQ Eight's Frequencies Wrong??

In case anyone is interested. I guess MIDI labels middle C as C3. For the record, MIDI does not label anything at all as C3. The MIDI specs (plural) say only that note 60 is ‘middle C’. The specs say nothing whatsoever about pitch/octave notation, nor even really what ‘middle C’ is—although there i...

Push-ArrangeMode v1.2 M4L device is "currently not for sale"...
I believe that is because PAM (Push-ArrangeMode) v2.0 is now the current version.

I am guessing that you want the Live 8 Legacy Pack, which you can find here:
