Possible AAS instrument crossgrade?

As a happy Live and AAS user (Live 6 and all the AAS instruments)... I was wondering if there's

1. any reason at all to buy the new instruments (perhaps for lower cpu usage and improved integration with Live?

2. any kind of crossgrade discount?

Thoughts?

Thanks for the response here Robert. I don't think you guys could have picked a better 'fit' for Live integrated instruments... They really are wonderful synths. I agree that that the String Studio/Tension is pretty special... and I find that using UA and LL mean I don't bother turning to other vsts...

Anyone confirm that new instruments are AAS synths...?

HI I noticed a post complaining that Ableton have used the (wonderful) AAS physical modeling synths for the new instruments in 7... if this is the case (and I already own the whole collection) are the new instruments a waste of money or is the level of integration so great that it makes sense... Are...

Tracking to Live - Very poor sound quality

Hi, I've been away from Live for some time... but just upgraded; lots of good stuff in there. One major problem, that I am sure is something I'm missing. I track from my mixer into Live (Mainly from MPC and various sound modules). This is no problem in Samplitude SE or Cubase LE, but in Live it prod...

Tracking in Live, and midi clock sync (MPC 60II question)

I need to track audio from an MPC60 and a Korg MicroX into my computer... I generally use FL Studio for bits and pieces, and the MPC for Drums etc... but I do own Live 5 (haven't upgraded...yet). I need a decent piece of tracking software...and here's the important bit,...that I can sync to my MPC, ...

The Presonus website says that the Firebox is not compatible withe NEC chipped PCMCIA cards... Can ANYONE recommend a PCMCIA card t...

Have you tried going into the firebox 'control panel' and setting the latency to a lower setting? The default latency is high...but is easily changed. I have it set to 3 or 4 on my pc laptop (which makes for a latency setting of 6-8ms in Live)...totally acceptable for evrything I'm doing. I've found...

exactly!

try it...it worked for me...apparently it's when you have two connected things plugged into the same electrical loop...problems may occur!

Hi,

I get a similar thing happening with my set up. Try disconecting the mac from the mains... in my case it happens because there's some kind of ground loop from the various bits of equipment I have plugged in. I find if I disconnect the laptop...problem solved.

Good luck.
