Re: Question about Chords and Classical Music

FWIW I just learned about a free iOS app from Yamaha called Chord Tracker, which claims to be able to listen to audio and figure out the chord progression. No idea how well it works.

Re: Question about Chords and Classical Music

The harmonic structure of classical and pre-classical music can be breathtakingly complicated, and cannot always be broken down into a straightforward series of chords. This harmonic complexity is one of the major things I find missing in today's popular music--especially electronic dance music. Exa...

Re: Class compliant MIDI devices in Windows 10

A class compliant device is one that does not require a manufacturer's driver; so I'm not quite sure what problem you're trying to solve.

Re: Remove Audio drivers

One other possibility: Look in C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming\Ableton\<Live release>\Preferences\User Remote Scripts
and see if there is a folder there with a name that matches your device. If so, remove that folder after uninstalling the drivers.

Re: Remove Audio drivers

Thanks again for your good ideas. This didn't work for the first go. But you say that if it doesn't work, I should reinstall the device & drivers and then run that little tool ? Is that correct ? Yes. It is possible that for some reason the uninstall tool does not think that the driver is installed...

Modular controller intended for photography works with live.

I recently acquired a Palette modular controller kit for use with Adobe Lightroom. When it showed up, I found that it can also be used as a MIDI controller, so I thought I'd tell you about it. The kit consists of a USB-powered master module and some number of controllers. The controllers stick to th...

Re: arturia v collection activation

If you haven’t done so already, try running the standalone versions of the plugins before using them under Live. Don’t know if that’s necessary for Arturia, but it is definitely necessary for some other plugins so it’s worth a try to see if Arturia requires it.

Re: Ableton Live 10.0.3 takes 40 minutes to load!

I used Live successfully for years on a machine about twice as fast as yours. However, it had 8 GB of RAM. Therefore, I think that if you were to increase yourmRAM to,8 or, preferably, 16 GB, you might be able to get it running fast though to use. 4 GBIs just not enough for,Live in the Windows 10 wo...

Re: Constant Driver Issues

I would start by ensuring that you have the correct driver for your audio interface. What kind of interface are you using?

Re: Ableton Live 10.0.2 BIG Problem need 10.0.1

The betas generate usage reports as they run, which may slow them down noticeably. However, if the problem is gone on 10.0.3 beta, then it should also be gone from the released version of 10.0.3; and I suspect it won’t be too long until that is released.

Re: Let's talk about the CPU !

In addition to possible bugs in your particular graphics card, I have encountered two other reasons for CPU spikes: 1) Perhaps the machine is not set for its highest-performance power mode. 2) Perhaps there is a problem with a cooling fan. I spent a month trying to figure out why my laptop was misbe...

Managing live performance with clips+notes at the same time?

What's a good way to use Push 2 to perform music live that combines launching clips and playing instruments over them? The problem is that at any given instant, the Push buttons do one of two things: They represent clips to be launched or notes to be played, but never both at once. That means that i...
