Re: More than one Master Out?

mighty necro!

if you just want duplicate outputs, i prefer to use extra audio tracks/channels, as that way you have metering all the time.

if you want to be able to create submixes, then use return tracks/channels instead, and use the sends to set up the submixes...

More cores is better. Less cores give higher single thread score. More cores use hyperthreading etc.

nope, more cores is not always better.

Re: (2019) Macbook Pro vs. Mac Mini - Cores vs. Speed!

Mac mini 3.2ghz 6 core geek bench multi core score is 5697. The new MacBook Pro 2.4ghz with 8 cores scores 7020. So the MacBook Pro is quite a bit faster almost 19% faster than the Mac mini. it's not that straightforward. all the processing of a single track in Live is bound to a single core, so it...

Re: Video export - suddenly - VERY limited!

As for Quicktime, it's not that deprecated - it's still supported on Macs at least. Including on Catalina according to Apple. i'm talking about the underlying multimedia frameworks, not QuickTime Player, if that's what you are referring to. AVFoundation is the newer stuff that has replaced the long...

i don't know if your equipment/software list in your signature is up-to-date, however Apple deprecated QuickTime years ago, which is one possible reason why you are seeing less options...

Re: Low Cut increases volume?

there's multiple reasons why a subtractive EQ filter might increase the peak level of a signal. - an EQ changes the shape of the waveform, and the resulting waveform might have a higher peak level. - the EQs most commonly used in mixing introduce frequency-dependent phase shifts to the signal, and c...

Re: Volume while recording is louder than recorded clip volume

how are you monitoring the analogue synth when recording? if you are using direct monitoring from your audio interface then the volume of the signal you are hearing isn't necessarily the same as what Live is recording. if you've screwed up your routing, it is also possible to be hearing a direct mon...

Re: Melodyne : how to send the processed audio to another track

yep, Live uses two-channel audio internally, so mono gets turned into dual-mono.

if it bothers you, you could export the recorded audio as an actual mono file and then reload it. a bit painful though.

Re: High end Mac with poor CPU usage

a single track is processed by a single core, so yes, one heavily loaded track can be bring any machine to its knees.

you might also find that lowering the GUI refresh rate might help you, since i guess you have a 5K display?

Re: What drum processing techniques are used to make drum swing work?

i don't think your "issue" is with drum processing and mixing. people who don't play drums have a marked tendency to underestimate the art and skill of percussion. if you sit most musicians down at a drum kit and ask them to play the most basic rock beat they will fail comically. i had a quick liste...

Re: Max out iMac pro upgrade worth it? Single core score ?’s

Just wanted to ask how far off you think we are from from computers or Daws being able to spread every element of a Daw(Ableton specifically) across all cores as in not dedicating a single track to a specific core leading to overload? making sure the other cores pick up the slack and are maxed out ...
