Video in Ableton Live

I've been really struggling to get video to work in Ableton on Windows. I've been trying different formats (AVI,MP4,moving etc). but none of them work the video box is empty but the audio gets imported. I know the video plays in VLC. I've installed the suggested codec packs, this made little differe...

EDM kicks

Just wondering if any of the Ableton drum packs are worth a download - or what do you use for producing typical EDM club style tracks.

I'm thinking of the very typical tropical sounding tracks. Ive got some KSHMR ones ive used for ages but fancy more of a collection.

VST 3 support - I know I am asking again but what the hell?

Ok I could jump ship but I love using Ableton. And on Windows as VST is the only third party format why is there still no suggestion to support this? I ask because Antares Auto-Tune - the one most producers use for getting modern autotune effects is not going to work without some trickery. I get its...

Re: Windows 10 DPC Latency - wdf01000.sys and how to fix?

The way Windows handles audio is very poor. Mac as such a good inbuilt core audio driver system, but Windows requires to start with ASIO drivers - because it's own internal drivers are crap to start with. But I hear that some drivers, like Focusrite possibly, can have half the latency for recording...

Re: Windows 10 DPC Latency - wdf01000.sys and how to fix?

Windows is unfortunately not good at handling music. Yes it's possible to achieve it with buying the right hardware and making tweaks etc but you will spend more time tweaking sometimes. I own a Mac and a PC and there are some who swear Windows is as good as a Mac. Well I don't know what planet they...

Re: Portable, Road-Worthy Interface

Good point, @jlgrimes. Here's what I've figured out so far: Stuff I Have: Laptop: Dell XPC 15/Windows 10/64-bit (just purchased) Novation Circuit: Fun sequencer and access to two 6-voice synths. Not completely in love with the synth engines, but time away from the studio will push me to design my o...

Re: Middle Mouse Button to Pan

Mouse scroll wheels are not great many different clicks and variations, might not work so well.

Re: is high sierra recommended for ableton 10?

I upgraded to High Sierra and lost my Bluetooth. Worst ever OSX update. I have seen similar issues, but its forced me to have to consider buying a new Mac. Nothing official on the internet but others also have lost bluetooth. No matter what you do you cannot get it back. So watch out, I wish I had n...

Re: Help! Other tracks bleeding into audio recordings

Things check. What sound/audio interface are you using? Is it picking up your audio or radio - I have to be careful where I am as my guitar cable can pick up radio. I've also had guitars pickup odd electrical disturbances from electric fences etc. Test a different cable or unplug guitar see if its s...

Re: LIVE 10 INTRO MOD (UPGRADE) SUGGESTION!

Dear Ableton team. I think that you can sell a lot more intro editions of Live 10 if you make less restrictions. 16 tracks (OK) lets say 16 scenes or maybe 32. At least 3 return channels and ability to buy all packs and devices from your store for intro users (except m4l) And if people really need ...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

I think you need to look deeper into whats in Live 10. I was the same as you, and I still feel the price is a little high. But a lot play down the amount of changes in Live 10. On the surface its not a lot but there is a lot to dive into to see whats changed and if I am honest I think it was release...

Re: Typo in live 10 very eye-tireing

Just to say during beta testing this was mentioned a lot, I personally like it, but others don't and its personal. They may very well develop a few different font types to keep everyone happy.
