Cloud-based storage is pretty much the opposite of optimal for a DAW.
I mean the assets are on my machine, but the problem is the checking/monitoring for upload...its not having to DL from the cloud

Re: Weird Macbook Pro CPU overloads

Ok - quick update - the main improvements now are to not use Diva multicore option - that is a repeatable test which crashes within 3 instruments playing...but if I turn off multicore I can get 6 playing absolutely fine... The Windowserver may/may not have made a difference given the above to this i...

Re: Weird Macbook Pro CPU overloads

Just keep in mind, a 7yo i7 is far less capable than a more modern one and it certainly won't be a huge leap in performance from what you were running really, still an old system. Also, there can be issues purchasing old second hand machines especially laptops in regards to dirt buildup and thermal...

Re: Weird Macbook Pro CPU overloads

This might help - https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=230967&start=15 You can’t “downgrade” to an earlier OS than the Mac was supplied with by the way - Apple’s app store won’t make it available on that Mac. Which avoids the problem of earlier OS versions not having necessary or compatibl...

Midi clip - 'headphones' preview button auto on?

Hi - is it possible to make it so that when you create a new clip and go in - that the headphones/preview is audio on? I cannot imagine why they make us have to switch it on every time...

Re: Argh...Live Library wont install

i haven't setup anything in bootcamp... i'm a PC user/builder/administrator... which is what made me ask about install paths. there's probably some funny business there. it could be good to take the library that you have now... the incomplete one... and rename it to something like library-old (if y...

Re: Argh...Live Library wont install

Re: LIVE 8 PERFORMANCE TEST - Results Here

Ive posted this machine before, however for those interested in a direct OSX vs Windows 7/64 comparison on same hardware, test done on both operating systems. OSX appears marginally faster, but probably easily within the margin for error for such a test. Windows 7/64 was a suprise being able to han...

Re: DMG Audio Compassion (new compressor) is out!!!!

it's probably more versatile ... (meaning it's got more envelope shapes / more detector types) but people forget that a compressor is simply a dude with his hand on the fader.. there are tons of free/cheap ones ..which make even a very versatile (and expensive)software comp not so much appealing to...
