Re: Screw you Komplete 9 upgrade install discs!

Logic was probably first of all the daw packages to include a library of usable instruments and effects. It covers just about everything you'd need. Aside from the built in time-stretch and limiters, which are just so behind the times it's untrue. In terms of UI for the instruments, I doubt that wil...

Re: Live 9 Suite Upgrade Price Drop FINALLY

It's gone back up. Considering what my cousin paid to go from a non suite 8 to suite 9..... and what I paid for suite 8. Their pricing for previous suite owners was POOR. in saying that I'm also an owner of Komplete Ultimate.....and NI's price to upgrade made me howl laughing. It was that ridiculous.

Re: Live 9 Pricing

Ableton have almost NEVER got upgrade price structures right for me. I remember having Ableton LE, which I bought to get started with. WHen I went to look at the upgrade for being an existing customer, it was significantly more then just buying Suite to start with. Don't forget.....generally Ableton...

Re: Massive vs. Maschine Mikro

I have a Maschine & Komplete Ultimate. The library for Maschine is more then enough. But having Massive with it is pretty good as well. Massive is quite a complicated synth and the layout bugs me. But it does live up to it's name. Most of the noises it makes are pretty big. If you feel you'd benefit...

NI Traktor S2 and APC 40 for remix decks

Just wondered if anyone here could shed some light onto something I am pondering. I know everyone is excited for Push...but I've been offered a good deal on a near new APC....but I'm not really so fussed about using it in live. Instead, it would seem almost near perfect to fit for a controller for 2...

Re: Who'd like updated versions of the APC40 and Launchpad?

I have to say though. I recently got hold of a Maschine.....the potential of that thing as a controller for Ableton is just incredible. The default script and map doesn't do it justice. I'm just no good at scripting...I could use NI's map editor & Live's MIDI learn function to create something 1/2 u...

Re: Who'd like updated versions of the APC40 and Launchpad?

I think putting the Nocturn & LP together in one uni would actually be a worse proposition then it is now. I find the setup of the Nocturn under Automap and the LP under Native and User modes to be just very flexible. The APC is better integrated, but that also holds it back. Since I have a Maschine...

Re: Upgraded Ram = Worse Performance????

It is odd. Even if one of the RAM sticks was bad, in theory you should still get better performance by putting the same overall amount memory into one controller.

I'd take the new RAM out and test them in turn...

PureMagentik Retro won't reinstall.

Hi. I've recently wiped and reinstalled my mac.

everything has gone fine with Live, aside from the PureMagnetik pack. I have now downloaded it several times without interruption but each time it fails. Sayign the pack is corrupt and 'unknown compound stream'.

Really is annoying me. Any ideas ?

Re: Sick of warping files constantly? I got your answer!

This was sortof tried before. A website setup selling music digitally, with prewarped asd files as part of the package. I seem to remember it getting panned quite badly and was gone quite quickly. The problem you'd have is that people would have different versions of the media files that you are cre...

In all fairness, this is not strictly Ableton's fault. They are using Rewire...one of the catches of Rewire is that any slave app cannot host 3rd party plugins. It's not just Ableton that suffers this way..

Re: Sync Traktor with ableton metronome fuck up

At a hunch. This sounds like it could be a problem with Traktor's sync mode when playing a file. But it's been that long since I did any 2 laptop sync'd setups...I'm not possibly sure. If Live is acting as the master clock. Then Traktor will try to keep time to it. If sync mode is on...it will try t...

Re: Ableton Live or Ableton Suite?

Is there a difference in the warp modes available between Live 8 and LIve 8 suite? Does Live 8 include pro and complex pro? I'm sure that Live 8 & suite 8 are the two versions that feature the complex and pro warp modes. It's the Intro and freebie versions you get with things like Launchpads and 3 ...

Re: Is it possible for a clip to launch another clip?

I can't think of a way of doing what you ask. Maybe someone could creat it using Max. But it sounds difficult.

Only other option I could think of would be using 2 launchpads to get the extra 8 channels that you want. But that seems like a bit of an overkill...

Re: Trouble Opening Plug Ins

Yeah I can appreciate that against things we need, buying music software, or music, or films etc doesn't feature that highly. My advice. Look round for 2nd hand copies or special deals. KVR is a good place to look for software. And sites such as Audiomidi do some ridiculous deals. AA Ultra Analogue ...
