Chances are that you have some plugins that are broken or got damaged...
Had that in Live 4, until I cleared out all unused crap from my VST folders.

Well, please answer me one simple question: Why there is no working Mac emulator on the Wintel plattform, while there is at least one woreking Wintel emulator for Macs? This according performance. Nope. To some degree it is a licensing issue, Microsoft licensed code to Softwindows, Apple with its c...

Don't mix up MIDI Clock and MTC - these are entirely different protocols and concepts. Clock essentially is the MIDI equivalent of the 24 pulses per quarter note sync signal between pre-MIDI hardware sequencers. MTC is essentially SMPTE over MIDI, that is, a absolute time format, and relating absolu...

Latitude C840. Generally fine, fast, big screen. But it has a PSU ground loop issue with the Midiman Quattro, and needs taping or cutting the PSU ground contacts.

It will entirely depend on the drivers and hardware. In general, the difference will be quite marginal - compared to the amount of CPU load the software generates, the drivers themselves should be negligible, unless they are positively broken. In Linux (not quite representative for Live, but the onl...

Either would require a PCI slot - which the TIbook doesn't have... You may be thinking of the Digi Mbox and M-Audio Duo USB interfaces - which are very similar in their features (stereo, bal/unbal, builtin preamp, sp/dif) and as far as my opinion goes, sound quality. The Duo features 24/96, while th...

Apologies for my ignorance, but what specifically do you mean by an 'extra uncluttered account?' A secondary login?
Right! My defaulrt login has desktop icons and autostart items for other (video, graphics and utility) software - for live performance that sutff ain't needed.

I haven't found any performance tuning settings that would be particular to audio - the other applications I run off the laptop are either trivial (Office 97, Mozilla, putty) and won't interfere with audio operations, or (video, VJ and graphics) benefit from the same tunings as the audio apps. I.e. ...

CEPro is a Direct X plugin host, and uses the WDM/MME interface to talk with sound cards. I.e. no VST, no ASIO, no Rewire! It is a multitrack sound editor like Protools, Cutmaster and Samplitude, with a very advanced track (destructive) editor besides the multitrack view. I'd strongly recommend it i...

The Quattro will only do 4 outs in ASIO mode. Get the 1.28 drivers from the Midiman site (1.25 has ASIO lockups with Live), and go ahead. The only mild snag is that the ports are both listed as "AudioSport Output" so you'll have to pick the ports by the order in which they appear in the popup lists ...

As far as I can make out, it is a bit less CPU heavy, where playing of tracks is concerned - CPU usage on my track-heaviest set went down from close to 30% on the betas to about 20% with all effects disabled, and all warping in beat mode. That would make it only insignificantly more CPU hungry than ...

Well, I am using a MPC 2000XL for that purpose, so the pad board would presumably do just as well. I've been investigating into special purpose PC USB keyboards - there are plenty for commercial applications about, and bar cash register onesin particular would make fine controllers. I've seen a neat...

Motherboards only support one or the other - the decision is pretty much one by chipset. As both have fairly similar prices and overall performance (DDR has faster access while RDRAM has higher throughput), I would not base my choice on the memory architecture. RDRAM tends to go with Intel boards an...
