Re: Newbie Where do i start???

Furthermore . . . Check out some other forums too. If you are interested in particular genres, check out forums that relate to that genre regardless of the platform you are creating on. There's two parts to what you want to do . . . 1) Create Techno (or what ever genre) 2) Use Ableton Those two thin...

Push 2 controlling Elektron Octatrack - Too Complex?

Hi, I have an idea of what I want to do but I'm not sure if the complexity is beyond me. This is what I'm after: i) Press User Mode ii) Use the 8 knobs to control volume on the 8 audio tracks within the Octatrack iii) Allocate track mutes to buttons on the push iv) Get visual feedback on the push An...

Re: Sudden CPU Issues - Ableton Reset Needed? - SOLVED

Finally solved this issue last night. I run a Geekbench test on my Macbook; it came back with results that were a third of what the machine should have been capable of. Read around a bit; did an SMC reset; restarted the machine and then Live. Everything suddenly as right as rain. Thanks to those who...

Re: Sudden CPU Issues - Ableton Reset Needed?

Tried all these things. No change.

Not sure whether to try using Sierra OS to latest version. May bugger other things up though and not solve this.

Re: Sudden CPU Issues - Ableton Reset Needed?

Cheers Mark.
Any advice is welcome at the moment.
Yeah I'm just down the road; I worked in Deal for nearly 3 years at the secondary school there.

With your database idea; how do I do a rebuild.

Thanks for your help and Happy New Year.

Re: Sudden CPU Issues - Ableton Reset Needed?

Yeah,
I was going to post on the Beta forum but the fact that my 9.7 was also presenting the samee issues encouraged me to post here too.

I've left the machine and live for over 30 minutes: no change.

Sudden CPU Issues - Ableton Reset Needed?

Hi and Happy New Year. Up until yesterday morning, everything on my Macbook running Sierra was working fine. I have been using Live 10 Beta but also have Live 9.7 installed. Yesterday morning I experienced a programme crash while using the beta. Nothing worrying about that. However, I didn't reopen ...

Re: Worth Adding an Elektron Analog 4

I thought I'd update my post, now that I've had the device for a few days and give my opinion about my choice. First off - having an Elektron Machinedrum already really helps with the learning curve. The sequencer is very similar to the MD and there are enough other similarities to allow me to get g...

Re: Worth Adding an Elektron Analog 4

Cheers.
Yeah, I know, I gave in fairly quickly.
I'm always amazed by the likes of Jack Bower or whoever on these shows where they're being tortured . . . My resilience is pretty poor. I'd tell the bad guys everything in a flash, especially if they offered me something that makes noises!

Re: Worth Adding an Elektron Analog 4

Cheers for your response. I trigger the MD from Ableton and bypass the sequencer too. I found Overbridge adds too much latency to my system to use with the Analog Heat; maybe the interface works better with the A4? At least by accessing it through Overbridge you can P Lock steps in Overbridge by way...

Worth Adding an Elektron Analog 4

Hi guys, I'm gradually adding a bit more hardware to my setup. Currently have Live 9 Suite with Push 2, Elektron Machinedrum and Elektron Analog Heat. I spent the last 5 weeks marking exam papers and now think I'm worthy of a present to myself. Have before looking at the Roland SE02 but thought I'd ...

Really due enhance anything I put through it. However, Overbridge is a bit unreliable and caused me large latency issue. I ended up ch...
