Re: Live, MacBookPro, external monitor and CPU

Display uses GPU which gets hot and causes the fan to run loud. If you’re room’s ambient temperature and air flow is inadequate, it adds to the temps. This causes CPU throttling to maintain safe temperatures. So if your computer is too hot, you won’t reach the true potential of your CPU clock.

Re: ableton push 3

or something else like an ableton piano (good idea) No offense but I don't think that's a good idea. Ableton isn't about that and I can't think of something an "Ableton piano" could bring to the table that a good third party MIDI controller/keyboard like the Novation Launchkey or something from NI ...

Re: iMac Pro

I just built a similar PC to the iMac Pro and it cost me $1200 less. Apple is overpriced. Exactly. Apple is overpriced. Typical Apple fanboys will question your build and ask you to "prove it" "show me receipts" "show me links". They get butt hurt. Ha. I agree Apple marks a significant price premiu...

Re: iMac Pro

CPU throttling - With so many cores packed into a machine that still uses small fans to move heat, you may not get the full potential of the expensive CPUs. When internal temperature reaches a preset threshold (like a compressor/limiter), the CPU speed will be automatically decreased. If so — I bel...

Re: Do you still use 128s with Push 2?

I try not to exceed 64 pads per drum rack. It does slow down Ableton’s responsiveness and load time significantly. It may have something to do with Live’s file indexing and sample analysis processes. I hope for better implementation in version 10.

Re: iMac Pro

Fortunately, the eGPU situation is evolving quickly. Hooking up a high end CUDA card via Thunderbolt 3 is a better solution for the creative who moves around a lot. One can travel around with the laptop, making necessary video/3D edits, then render at a later time. It beats having to use two machine...

Re: iMac Pro

I meant having an iMac Pro is for those who want to avoid an external monitor for 5k display.

As for temps, we’ll see.

Re: iMac Pro

I love and use only Apple computers, but I say its a good idea to miss this one. If money does not come easy, avoid buying first generation machines, especially those that have impressive specs. Here’s sometimes to think about. CPU throttling - With so many cores packed into a machine that still use...

Re: ableton push 3

The Push 2 is pretty much future proof. It’s like a Tesla car, there were so many features not activated at release that will now be discovered in Live 10. I knew this from buying the Retouch Pusher2 script for reason and saw all the instruments icons in color on the Push screen. It seems that devel...

Re: -_RelaxFileManagerSearch doesn't work properly?

Currently, there is no solution. You will have to manually drag each candidate, or just abandon sessions that are not priority until Ableton issues a fix.

Re: Live 9 can't open Live 8 project

Whoa, I was going nuts trying to figure out why my Live 8 projects were not loading in Live 9. Thanks to reviewing this thread, I removed Max to solve me problem. i rarely use it anyway, except for occasional LFO.

Re: I want to quit.

Just have fun with the music. I'm a lifetime music professional, but even if the money stopped, I would still play everyday in Ableton or Bitwig. I can always fall back to computer programming or construction management. Always have another important skill, as my father strictly enforced.
