Re: Playing a Track While Recording a New One

Ah. OK. Sounds like you’ve solved the problem. As it happens, I’m useless at trying to record drums using a keyboard as well. Pads can make things easier. I usually have a pair of pads next to each other set to generate snares and another couple doing the same for hi-hats. I find that makes doing fa...

Re: Playing a Track While Recording a New One

If you mean "can Live do multi-track recording and let you hear what you have recorded in a project while recording another track in the same project" then yes. That's Live's default behaviour.

Re: Connect hardware synths

MIDI bank and program change messages can be sent from Live, assuming there's nothing unusual about either synth, but the actual programs themselves will almost certainly need storing on the synth. It might be worthwhile searching to see if anyone has made software editors for the synths, that can m...

Re: Behringer UMC404HD channel bleed on Mac

Sorry for not getting back to this earlier, we had a family emergency that's taken up a huge amount of time over the last week. It's sorted out now, I hope (fingers crossed). Hopefully you've sorted out the cause of your DAW problem by now, but if you haven't the only thing I can think at this stage...

Re: A question about Filter Delay

Here's one way. Create your audio track and put utility and filter delay on it, in that order. Group them to form a rack. Set the filter delay's wet/dry setting to fully wet. In the same rack create a new chain with no processing - that's your unaffected dry signal. Now select the relevant audio cli...

Re: Behringer UMC404HD channel bleed on Mac

Do you get cross-talk from the click if you use the Mac’s built in sound? Is there cross-talk involving any sound other than the click? If the Mac’s soundcard makes the problem go away, then there’s your answer for where the cross-talk is coming from. If the problem persists then either the routing ...

Re: CPU overload after SSD upgrade

I was getting over 20% with an empty project and not even playing (i7 2.2GHz MBP, 16GB RAM, all SSD setup). Almost any plugins loaded took Live 10 to over 35% and glitching at a 128 sample buffer (RME UFX). This dropped the idle resource use to 5% and I now don’t get glitching until it hits 70%+. Fo...

Re: Question about polarity/phase flip

I’m kind of confused what you mean, and the point is to have them in the same direction Matching phase is about more than simply taking two wave forms and inverting one of them. Often that amount of phase change can still have enough issues to be a noticeable problem. Sometimes zooming in on a wave...

Re: Question about polarity/phase flip

If you really want to destructively change the phase (or anything else) on a track you can do it by putting utility on it, switching the phase change then resampling the track to another track or record the output of the flipped track to another track - just set the input on a new audio track to the...

Re: CPU overload after SSD upgrade

I remember seeing references to the 2012 MBP sometimes needing a new SATA cable if the drive is replaced. So I did a bit of searching - these links might be relevant. https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/356610/Hard+Drive+SATA+cable+failing+related+to+the+battery+brackets https://www.ifixit.com/Answe...

Re: Is my latency good enough or should I try to get it lower?

I generally record with my RME UFX (using firewire and Apple TB2 adaptor) at 128 samples. I can get lower latency - 32 samples even - but I’m happy with that and any lower really pushes my MBPro hard. 128 gives me latency I can work with and I can run some more demanding plugins when monitoring thro...

Re: Is my latency good enough or should I try to get it lower?

Yes, somewhere between 10 and 20ms latency seems to be where most people start to find problems.

Re: CPU overload after SSD upgrade

A couple of thoughts. You might need to enable TRIM on the SSD to get the best out of it. With Mojave it should happen automatically but it does no harm to check. A quick way to check is to open "about this Mac" and pick the system report tab. In system report open the hardware entry and go to SATA/...
