Performing my own productions live.

I would like to start playing live sets using my own tracks/production elements and I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about doing it.

Suite 8.0.4 half the size of original release?

I just realized I had never updated my copy of Suite 8, so I just did. I noticed that my original DMG file (OSX) is 1.5gb and the new one is about 700mb. Is this normal? I just want to make sure I'm not losing anything from within the program. I know everything installs to other locations. Thanks!

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

www.samedaymusic.com is good too. Seems like most of these sites still have it on order though.

Re: Is Live 8 trustworthy ?

Mine was running for about 5 hours at a gig last night with no problem. Also been using it for produciton (of course) without any issues. I'd say it's safe to use so far.

Re: What zoom level have you settled with?

I can't use anything other than 100% because I need that crisp look.

Re: Fast Track Pro Setup and Midi Controller Questions

Which operating system do you use, and have you installed the drivers? Drivers exist for both Windows and Mac OS and can be found on the M-Audio site. After the drivers are installed, in your Ableton Preferences, make sure Driver type is set to ASIO (Windows) or CoreAudio (Mac) then select the Fast ...

Re: Live 8 re-analyzes all previously warped tracks?
