Re: Some VST UIs appear blank/white

I also have this problem with the old camel audio alchemy (so no chance for an update from author :). works fine in live 10, on live 11 I only get a black window. still plays fine when in an old project loaded. Interestingly if I click in the window where the preset browser should be, it can change ...

Re: Aligning groove between two tracks

Could be something like that. Unfortunately, not easy to get re-recordings. This particular case is casual anyways, but it seems like a generally useful thing to have, to be able to line up two tracks and warp one to another reference. I suppose I could actually do it just as audio editing since it'...

Re: Aligning groove between two tracks

Maybe groove would work... my problem is that the two sources are way far off... eg it’s not that the vocal & guitar strum are both at the 2.2 beat but one is slightly off, it’s that the vocal is over at 3 and I need to back it up to exactly 2.2 + the offset of the strum. I suppose it could work...

Aligning groove between two tracks

So, this might be an edge case (so maybe why I can't find it and/or it's not supported), or it may be something basic I just never got, but looking for a way to do this. Basically, I got some stems from our work band that... well, several people are recording parts against (supposed to be) the offic...

Re: What did change about audio IO between Live 9.6 (working) and Live 9.6.1 (glitches)?

Release notes are here:

https://www.ableton.com/en/release-notes/live-9/

If you scroll down to 9.6.1, it does appear that the audio engine was tweaked a bit between 9.6 and 9.6.1 .... maybe it’s time to revisit that tweaking?

Re: Relocating specific VST patch that's become unreferenced

depends... an ableton project is just a gzipped xml file (iirc). So you can probably gunzip it, look at the xml, and figure out where kontakt was. But... usually, the vst has its own internal format for its data, so it just gives it to Ableton as a binary blob. This is just uuencoded (or base64 enco...

Re: Am I The Only One Not Impressed?

Can you give examples of 64bit being an "upgrade". Maybe I'm wrong. I've only ever used 32 bit. And isn't there a compatibility problem with Ableton 10? We won't be able to open old projects that have 32 bit plugins? I opened a set a couple days ago with Live 10 in OSX, that I originally ...

Yes, most of the early testers have been using it as their sole daw for weeks or months now. I’ve been using it for client work for about two months now without a single issue. Really? Maybe I should try help out with the demo.. Feel like I ove them after all these years of non stop flowing music m...

Re: 10 is announced!

i was looking at automation delay compensation - it isn't fixed for live 10, apparently, or the visual indicators (not too surprising, but sad). It's baffling that they wouldn't have fixed this very fundamental problem with the program's architecture. I agree... but there's also a way to get around...

Re: 10 is announced!

M4Live is now integrated in the Suite, so less problems... but not in Live Standard. That means, if I upgrade from Live9 standard to Live10 standard, my M4live, which I purchased years ago separately, makes the same problems as always. In other words: Live Suite Users have no problems for the futur...

Re: When Ableton Live 9 is open, kills all other computer sound

IIRC there is a setting in the audio panel for sample rate. obviously this needs to match what you are using in Ableton if you want them both to be able to use the soundcard at the same time - the soundcard can only send out one stream of audio after all. keep in mind the intention of ASIO is to get...

Re: Live 10 Screenshot?

that's true, but they shouldn't completely get rid of folders. i may not be representative of true musicians :) but tagging, while really powerful, has a startup cost - you have to remember to tag things, or put the right thing in the name. probably already done in the factory content (hopefully!) b...

Re: Valhalla Room vs Vintage

both are good.

use VVV if you want to hear the verb, use room if you don't.

plate is pretty good if you want to hear the verb too - i prefer it to VVV even when it's tuned right, it's my favorite of the valhallas.

Re: Project crashes on teachers computer, but works on mine

It could be that... i've seen that on windows before, where a set that had a plugin I no longer had installed wouldn't load; it would crash on startup instead. I would think freezing would avoid this, but maybe not. btw, if that's true, you can just bounce those tracks, delete the plugins, and use a...
