Re: CPU overload after SSD upgrade

YYYYYYYYIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEE!!!! I've finally worked out the issue. I suspected this earlier but didn't follow it through properly. Bloody spotlight and the fricking indexing. I noticed today that even though I installed the drive a week ago or more the index bar was at like 10-20%. Its not mo...

Analog stereo compressor on master for Live performance

I've been seeing a few guys plug an analog stereo compressor / limiter / leveler on the master out of their Ableton (post audio interface, pre analog pro mixer or dj mixer). I'm usually playing unmastered parts live, using the utility gain on each channel to keep it somewhat safe but I still struggl...

Re: Roland TR8S

Using my TR-8S as an audio output for Ableton for my live set. Loving it much better that the old TR-8 (I blew through 3 of them as they kept breaking).

MacBook Pro 2018 Microphone Inputs just showing 1, not 2

MacBook Pro 2018 Microphone Inputs only showing as 1 input, not 2 like usual? Is this normal?

I've been having issues with SMC (had to reset it 3 times now) with my internal outputs / inputs totally disappearing randomly.

Works fine with an audio interface but...

Re: Multiple instances of Live on OS X

Is this working okay? I just watched a video that basically did a copy paste of the Ableton application in the Applications folder (instead of opening terminal?)

Thanks!

Re: Live 9 and Supatrigga not working?

Yes all my other VSTs and AU are working fine. No problem.

I just checked Live again. Nothing.

Checked the VST and Components folders and Supatrigga is there.

I've installed two plug-ins since then that show up fine.

hmm. Maybe do a disk utility?

Live 9 and Supatrigga not working?

Running Mac OSX 10.8.3 and Live 9.0.2 on rMBP 2.4 and can't seem to call up Supatrigga as a VST or AU. I have them in respective folders HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components for the AU HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST for the VST (I noticed there was no .vst at end of file so I changed it to see if tha...

Re: Best ways of reducing CPU load

Oddly, I found the CPU usage very efficient when beta testing. Suddenly, I've noticed it tends to become extremely high even in relatively minimal projects. This, regardless of buffer settings or, indeed how many instances of M4L devices I'm using. This is on a 2012 MBP Retina (8GB RAM, OS X 10.8.3...

Re: headphones to choose?

I love my Shure SRH840's. I've had Sennheiser and Sony in the past and I love these the most. I do want to try the AIAIAI's Studio cans.
