saving 3rd party presets

Hello, buenos dias. Looking for different ways of collecting third party synth presets without having to create groups. I often dedicate some time during my week to just browse my favorite synths preset folders and in various notebooks and pieces of paper I write down interesting sounds that I might...

drum machines pack included?

Hello. just recently reinstalled Ableton in a new Mac. As I'm getting things up to date I noticed that my Live 9 download included in the browser the "drums" tab, and in it what appears to be the old "drum machines". Yet in the packs section on their website, there still is the drum machines pack do...

Essencial instruments location

I used to have all my samples and the EIC collection in my MBP when I was running live 8, but since upgrading to 9 i noticed the size of the packs to be way bigger. I'm thinking about installing those extras in an external drive. Is this recommended? Where should I instruct Ableton to find the new l...

Live 9. No elbow room!

I'm definitely not gonna have enough room for my old Live 8 library with the old EIC 1 samples AND Live 9 with all the packs to download, plus EIC 2! Can I delete the old library, and how do I get my old personal Racks and instruments presets that I've created over the years on to this new version. ...

Cleaning up old ableton files

I just installed version 8.3.4. I've been using Live since version 5 i think, and on this MacBook Pro for a couple of versions without digging to clean up much of the older version's stuff. Just curious if anyone knows where and how i should go to delete any unnecessary older Live files that are lef...

Re: Help with Firewire Audiophile no RCA out

Today I ran a Mac OSX maintenance program called ONYX and did some cache cleaning, restarted the computer and now everything works fine. I'll post any developments for anyone that is having the same issues.

Good.

Help with Firewire Audiophile no RCA out

Something is happening with my mac/m-audio firewire audiophile. The other day, out of nowhere, the rca outs stopped sending out a signal. I could still get sound out of the headphones, and into the rca inputs though. I tweaked the software mixer, reset it, re-installed the drivers… everything. No lu...

ableton cache decoding mp3 to wavs

I just ran a program called Grandperspective that shows you in a graphic way what files are on you computer and how much room they take, and found a huge section of .wav files taking up quite a bit of room, and they turned out to be mp3 files that I have on my DJ sets, and ableton converts into wav ...

Axiom puzzles

After my trusty 5 year old E-mu xboard49 midi controller died on me, a friend gave me his 1st gen. Axiom 49, and this thing puzzles me. I'm trying to stick to the 17-20 presets, like recommended, but still find some weirdness in how it controls my software. The rotary knobs link to a number when tur...

Re: Crashes exporting audio on Live 8.1.3

the first thing support will tell you is to install the latest version, 8.2.2. OK, I managed to fix this myself, no thanks to you guys! 'we' don't actually care, we're not here to help you, we're here to waste time while we're at work. what have YOU done for us? :P contact support. What has he done...

midi port question

Pardon the ignorance, but when i hook up a controler (axiom 49), in the remote controler options ins and outs, it gives me two port choices: port1 and port 2. What does that mean? All i have here is one keyboard hooked to the usb of my mac.
It's just out of curiosity, it works fine…

gracias. b.
