Clearly there will be people on both sides of this issue. But even more clearly, this is NOT a forum for political debate.

The way I know to do this is: - Set your quantization to bar - Hit 'record' during the measure before you're going to record - Hit 'stop' during the measure before you want the loop to stop - The loop should now be cleanly at bar boundaries, and playing It would be nice if global quantization could ...

When comparing my results to the performance thread, my 850Mhz duron is ~700 Mhz iBook. Anyone worried about more performance than that is not worried about making music. In general I'd agree, and I'm certainly not losing sleep about Live's performance. I do bounce tracks, especially those with CPU...

Cool -- thanks. I'm an OmniWeb user, too, and I'd love to be able to read the forums again without messing with my settings! (It used to work just fine, BTW, until about a month or two ago.)

As SongCarver points out, Altivec is much more important the SSE2. I puzzle over Ableton's refusal to support it, especially with Apple providing several math libraries which are Altivec-enhanced. Specifically: http://developer.apple.com/hardware/ve/vector_libraries.html And of course GCC 3 (provide...

I would recommend listening to music instead of looking at the gear. when are the electronic music lovers going to stop being gearheads and think about the music only? Never. Electronic music lovers (and especially makers) are into gear, plain and simple. So are acoustic music lovers. I saw Dave Be...

I'd suggest looking into mics used for location sound recording. Best place to start (at least for finding out what's out there), is probably:

I bought some stuff from them for documentary work, and it was great.

you can do this with quantization of the ending of the loop recording. My experience even with quantization set to "bar" is that I get a lot of 3-bar 3-beat loops (instead of 4-0) when trying to record on the fly. (This is after the 1.5.1 update, too.) I like the original suggestion, so I wouldn't ...

Vocoding

Hi all, I noticed that Prosoniq Orange Vocoder now supports OS X, plus there's the MDA vocoder plug-in. Anyone have experience/opinions on either? I also did some digging and found the Electrix WarpFactory hardware vocoder which looks very cool, but I SWORE I was done with hardware. Boy do I love re...

Scott, About the sound card: it depends on what you need to do. I only have a stereo out, so I don't use pre-listen. I'm sure it's a cool feature, but I get along fine without it. FWIW, I've had great success with a Griffin iMic -- $35 very well spent, especially on a portable laptop rig. (Laptops t...

Software companies can license their software either per-copy or per-user. I don't have my Ableton license here at work, but my guess is that it's per user. So when the software is registered, it's registered to that user and that user only. As for what happens if Ableton goes under (and everyone be...

I still have all my stickers, and some Vic Firth (drum stick) stickers I'm looking to put somewhere. Unfortunately, the Live stickers are just a little too big for the edge of my TrapKAT drum controller. My 4U rack doesn't go anywhere now that I'm software-based, so sticking them there wouldn't do a...

A note to Ableton: Apple has pretty nice vector processing libraries in Jaguar 10.2:

MidiMan just released new beta drivers for the MIDISport boxes on Friday. Go to their site and do the driver search, and check the "show beta and previous versions." The new one (3.0b1 I think) addresses timing issues. FWIW, I was using my e-drums with Reason and Live and having a buttload of MIDI t...
