Re: New Apple machine with 8th Gen i7 (Mac mini) running badly (UPDATE: Possible Fix)

I guess one question has to be whether the 4K screen issue is unique to Live or happens in other applications/DAWs? I could barely run Live on my MBP (i7 quad core, Intel graphics) due to glitching and dropouts until I applied the options.txt frame rate reduction. But Logic Pro X runs without any p...

Re: New Apple machine with 8th Gen i7 (Mac mini) running badly

Update from my side: I'm using an eGPU now with monitor attached to the external unit. Problems gone completely. Which eGPU and graphics card did you go with? I've been experiencing similar issues as others in this thread and it's been driving me crazy. I'm using a maxed out 2018 Macbook Pro 15" wi...

Re: Rendering stems and clipping

Yes it matters. You need your master WAY down if you want to have it mastered. -6db headroom I believe is what you should allow yourself. Clipping on the master is prob the number 1 thing to avoid Ask the mastering house/engineer what peak levels they would like to see on the master and set it acco...

Rendering stems and clipping

Does it matter if the master is clipping if I'm exporting stems? Will it affect the stems? I'm preparing to send my stems off for mixing & mastering does it matter if the master is in the red inside the project? The individual stems are not clipping but because of the amount of them playing at the s...

Buffer, latency and rendering

So I'm preparing some songs to send them off for a final mixing and mastering. Nothing is being recorded anymore just audio files at this point. My current projects are about 10 stems, the vocals have quite a bit of plugins on them but nothing too CPU heavy. This is causing my CPU to go thru the roo...

Parallel Effects Rack vs Return Channels

I seen a couple youtube tutorials where they use reverbs & delays on an Effects Rack in a Parallel chain which I never thought about doing before. This makes me wonder what is the difference of using parallel reverb FX Chains directly on the channel vs sending that channel to a return channel with r...

Re: About Export With Return & Master Effects

I think that’s the idea yes. Interesting concept but be aware that the sum of the individual tracks with the fxs will not sound the same as the master track. Do you mean it won't sound the same as the return channel because it's printed on to the individual stems instead of the return channel as a ...

About Export With Return & Master Effects

I have a question about this new setting in the beta. If I export a stem that is sending to a reverb return channel is the reverb effect printed onto the stem itself?

Re: Headphones Not Automatically Switching

it is because the 2018 MBPs treat the built-in speakers and the headphone port as separate outputs (which they are). previously—as you know—they were mutually exclusive and plugging in headphones disabled the speakers. i prefer the new way but it does take some getting used to... I had a feeling th...

Headphones Not Automatically Switching

So now sure if this is a Live 10, a 2018 Macbook Pro issue, or a Mac OS Mojave issue. I know this never happened before though. If I'm working on my laptop I could be listening to music on my computer with my headphones plugged in and everything works fine but then I open up Ableton and start workin...

Undo Timecode frame rate?

So lately as I'm working on a project when I go to undo/redo a change I made, nothing happens. Then I go up to Edit on the top and it says "undo time code frame rate" and then I have to keep hitting undo several times before it actually undoes the change I made. Same for redo. It's been happening a ...

Ability to search for symbols in the browser

Basically sometimes I label some samples with a symbol like * or ! to make it easy to find them in finder and so they show up at the top of a long list of samples. I'd like to be able to search for these samples in the browser but currently it does nothing when trying to search by symbol, regardless...

Sierra issues

So I made the foolish mistake of updating to Sierra because I heard everything was working ok for the most part. And yes for the most part everything works good, my projects open and all my plugins seam to still work (haven't tested everything yet) But when I open a project I was working on I soon r...

Re: Who's making music standing up?

Nice, how do you like standing vs sitting now? Do you alternate between the 2 or use it standing mostly?
I'm still considering whether to go sit/stand or to stay standing only. Any trouble focusing and really
diving into a track while standing?

Love the studio btw and how clean it is
