Re: NI Studio Drummer track input conundrum

Thanks, people. @clydesdale I know...another problem I faced was that when I added lots of channels, I always got a stereo track which was called "st 2" but which was routed to output channel 1/2 - just like the first track in my mixer. That is probably the reason for the "shift" I mention above, ev...

Re: NI Studio Drummer track input conundrum

Replying to my self is fun. :) Trial and error shows that the real problem is that Live does not update the output listing correctly, so when I make changes in Kontakt they are not reflected in Ableton even after a refresh. But then suddenly the changes "take". So finally I got it all set up correct...

Re: NI Studio Drummer track input conundrum

Still learning the ropes here... After I set things up, and then save and reload things to make sure things update between Kontakt and Live, the channels somehow shift one step so that the Kick track in Live gets audio from the Snare track in Kontakt. So while live apparently shows the labels from t...

Re: NI Studio Drummer track input conundrum

OK this is down to my own incompetence, I think. I was using the Kontakt 16out version thinking that it would be enough. I wonder if that is max 8 stereo channels - and that the Master channel counts for 1 of these? Anyway, using the version only labeled "Kontakt" I see all the tracks in an empty pr...

NI Studio Drummer track input conundrum

Hey folks, I apologize if this has been discussed elsewhere but I am unable to find a solution. I am trying to use multiple outputs from NI Studio Drummer running in Kontakt 5 Player. I use Ableton Live 9.1 Studio. My audio interface is the NI Session I|O. I have created a mixer preset in Kontakt 5 ...

Re: Which Operating System [OS] will you run Ableton 9?

MacBook Pro running OS X 10.8
PC desktop running Win 8

(Mainly because my iMac died on me and I couldn't afford a new one).

So if I keep that .cfg file I should theoretically be good? Ableton obviously thinks I am a crook.

Will fresh install of Leopard require Live activation?

I am tired of having to request unlocks for Live.

Does anyone know if doing an "Archive and install" of Mac OS X Leopard will require me to use yet another unlock? :?:

I'm sure they'll get me sorted. I have installed Live on a total of 3 macs (including the current one) and 1 PC which has had a few hard drive crashes and therefore have needed several unlocks due to hardware upgrades. But it would still be cool to have a "remaining unlocks" figure on the License pa...

Live service levels...

I understand the need to get the "good news" out regarding Live 7. It looks like a decent update. But what worries me is that I am unable to unlock Live on my new iMac because I'm out of unlocks. I *specifically* asked Ableton to add unlocks to my account because I ran out earlier this summer, and k...

I have just bought some second-hand stuff to improve on my old Athlon XP. I got an Athlon-64 x2 3800 on an Asus A8N-SLI Premium. Also added in a new SATA2 320GB hard drive for the system. I have 2 Gigs of DDR ram as well. Hopefully that will keep me in the game for a little while yet. I haven't set ...
