Re: Gear Recommendations for Live Performances

I like as many knobs as possible on a MIDI controller. It wasn't inexpensive, but my favorite MIDI controller is my Faderfox PC12. One day, I'll pair it with an MX12. I used to use an old Behringer BCR2000, but it went haywire - and it gave me wrist pain while performing live with it because the kn...

Re: Gear Recommendations for Live Performances

Why not use Live for this, that's what it was created for :) Otherwise if you have to have hardware, I think the MC707 or Octatrack are probably my favorite depending on if you prefer synthesis or sample based playing. I will use Live 11. But I don't just want to hit play :wink: I want to take the ...

Re: 2nd Single Made on Ableton (& big challenges)

I think it's really good. It's creative and exciting. I've only been in production game for less than a year so every time I hear something I like I don't have much criticism. I have not found those sounds in Ableton nor do I know how to bring them out like you did. Where do you get your sounds? Ke...

Re: 2nd Single Made on Ableton (& big challenges)

Is that Los Angeles? I had a friend who helped me make the videos for Naughty Boys and Musical Chairs. He uses some software where you take templates but can customize them. The video for KRASH was one of the royalty free site for cool videos. I think it is in France. All videos plus the recent rad...

Re: Major Problems With Live 11

I'm running Live 11 on a 2018 Mac Intel 6 Core i9 PowerBook. Thankfully,I have not had all the problems some are reporting. However, the CPU/overload indicator is constantly venturing into the red, and overheating my computer. The fan is going like crazy, but my Activity Monitor says I am only usin...

Re: Major Problems With Live 11

Hello there These issues are indeed very strange : I'm using a mid-2012 15" model macbook pro running Mojave, and I don't have any issue with Live 11. It runs as smooth as Live 10 (and I'm able to say this because I tested both versions extensively with a test I describe below). But there is a BIG ...

Was having some cpu issues and other nonsense as well.

Re: Major Problems With Live 11

I have not reported yet, because I am trying on a newer audio interface first: Unfortunately the order seems to be stuck in the Suez-Channel or something... Ha! In the line behind the Evergreen. That canal blocker has been moved on so hope your audio interface arrives soon. What did you opt for?

Re: Major Problems With Live 11

Hi All, Joining the discussion as I am having issues too with my setup and L11. Recently reinstalled this laptop while having a M1 chip Mac in the Studio. I ran L11 for the first time this weekend on the M1 with a heavy L10 session and it didn't crash but I'll run further tests. Now on this laptop ...

Re: Major Problems With Live 11

...Of course, it is best to try one fix at a time while watching both Live's and Task Manager's average CPU meters (or Activity Monitor on a Mac) to see what makes a difference in your case. Hope this helps! Thanks for the recommendations, it can help... but at this point, we all can see that the i...

Re: Major Problems With Live 11

actually bought a brand new dell precsion 5540 with L11 in mind, and the glitching and CPU overload with even one brass instrument and no effects is devastating. only form responses from Abelton, red-lettered admonishments about "the situation we're all in these days"... I've returned L11 and am go...
