Ableton Internal Activity Monitor / Task Manager

So I have a pretty powerful computer, so the vast majority of the time am well within my CPU limits. However in some scenarios when I have a lot going on, or if I want to significantly reduce my latency, I start to approach the limit. In a larger scale project, it would be really great to have a too...

Save audio settings as part of project data

Been thinking about this a bit recently and realised that it would be VERY useful, for me at least, to be able to save audio settings on a project level. By audio settings I mean the stuff accessible via the Preferences / Audio, for example Sample Rate. 2 reasons this would be useful: - first that a...

Re: Almost come to end of my tether with Windows 10...

Using a 2nd gen 18i20 here on windows 10 with no issues, bear in mind ensure the focusrite is not on a usb hub, as they can be picky with USB ports, and more importantly you are not using the correct drivers. Interesting to hear the 2nd gen is working good. Maybe I just need to get a get a newer so...

Re: Almost come to end of my tether with Windows 10...

Driver-wise I am trying to use the Focusrite USB2.0 ASIO (which I assume is the best one for my soundcard). If you are using a first gen 6i6 you need these drivers : https://d2zjg0qo565n2.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/focusrite/downloads/20453/scarlett-mixcontrol-1.8.exe If you are using a sec...

Almost come to end of my tether with Windows 10...

Switched to a windows PC several months ago since I gradually outgrew my Macbook's processing power... I expected it to be more effort to get things to work, however I really did not anticipate quite how much of a nightmare it was going to be. Seems to go in up and downs, but today I have turned on ...

Re: Ableton 10 Upgrade question!!

Yeah so I bought Ableton 9 like 2 weeks before they announced 10, along with the announcement that everyone who gets Ableton 9 from now gets a 20% and free upgrade. Did I just lose £300 ? 8O No, I know at least 2 people that bought 9 even 1 month+ before 10 was announced and Ableton gave them free ...

Re: Just switched to Windows 10 from OSX - astonishingly bad...

I've attached my PC spec to my signature. Only thing that could conceivably be causing a problem would be my motherboard, but I only say that as I don't know enough to say either way. I am pretty sure it is an issue with drivers and my soundcard on further investigation. I've think the freezes are ...

Re: Just switched to Windows 10 from OSX - astonishingly bad...

a PC that has significantly better spec Says who? Anyway, in order to use Windows 10 (Pro?) for audio you need to make sure you set your processor for real time audio work and turn off all that fluff you don't need. Also, make sure you control automatic updates as much as you can. I will never use ...

Re: Just switched to Windows 10 from OSX - astonishingly bad...

Windows 10 user Windows user since 3.1 It runs fine (great) if you know what you are doing. Since you decided to have a little moan without posting anything at all that could help then I can only assume your machine is powerful enough to actually run Live and possibly as has been suggested you just...

Just switched to Windows 10 from OSX - astonishingly bad...

I've been going strong with my 2010 Macbook pro for quite some time, but recently decided I was due an upgrade. Got myself a PC that has significantly better spec than the Macbook, and I have to say there seem to be some serious issues with Windows 10 compatibility. The program frequently goes unres...
