Re: Anybody with a 2012 iMac 21.5 with 5400 RPM Drive?

I have one, just bought it. Live 9 Suite, so far so good... however, I must say "damn you Avid" for not having compatible drivers. I don't run large sample libraries usually, mostly plugins and internal instruments.

Re: Fucking Warping!!!

Try warping some pop/rock from the 60s. I did "Let's Stay Together" the other day and it is a good example a song that was not recorded with a click. Also some Zeppelin or Funkadelic (for a bit more swing)...

Re: Hey Ableton, how's that RISC version of Live coming along?

Remember, Microsoft is also porting Windows 8 to ARM processors... this does SEEM to be a nascent trend for the entire industry. I think it will take awhile for Apple/MS to make the shift but it seems logical that if a company can produce low cost and effective chips like Apple can, that are tailore...

Re: music theory advice needed please, dissonant notes

Yeah, well certainly this note would be dissonant, this can not be argued. However, dissonance is good, yes? Or at least it can be pleasing in certain context. Anyway, just a bit of nit picking... are you sure you want to say A# minor? Certainly if this is the mood you desire, I shall not talk you o...

Re: OSX 10.6.3 ...... new user. Performance tweaks ?

There are a few things you can do... I like to use Onyx to turn off things like Dashboard (the widgets) Have a separate user accounts that starts up very minimal (go to your account settings in system prefs then login items) It truly does help to defrag a Mac but, unlike windows, it requires the vol...

Re: magazine recommendation

I've been working at the Carousel Mall in Syracuse lately and I have been going to the borders for my lunch break and reading all the different audio production magazines (for a possible subscription and because I care not for the sample discs and those mags cost upwards of $20 here in the states). ...

Re: MacBook Air: is the 4200rpm HDD good for Live?

Is the MBP really that heavy? I would never use a 4200 RPM HDD for anything besides general web browsing, email and such... using Live with a 5200 RPM gets sketchy real quick...

Re: Max4Live released soon? New video uploaded by AbletonInc

exactly... this is why I am hoping, for us users for own licenses to both programs that M4L is either free or a VERY nominal fee (no more than $50)... I can't really see paying more than that for something I basically already own. Otherwise, I hope the release does come soon as I am very excited abo...

Re: Advanced midi options in piano roll

In general, I find that the feature I want the most is more powerful MIDI editing. My desires are not just confined to the piano roll (although those features look nice) but also I would love to have some form of score editor or at least a score view so I could more easily import my creations from F...
