Re: CPU usage in Live 10

OK so please take this as healthy criticism, to failure is the coin of phrase, but what you want to do is take the CPU to failure and reduce plug ins until you get no crackles or other audio artifacts in your signal at all! Heh, no worries, but yes, that is of course what I did, otherwise I wouldn'...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

Continued a bit from above: as predicted, but still interestingly, the percentage-wise difference between versions becomes less when using a longer buffer. Bumping the buffer from 128 to 512 samples, Live 8 runs 143-144 instances of Collision in that same project before getting the crackles, and Liv...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

Thanks for taking the time, it's reassuring to know that it's that much on par on some systems :). And yep, to failure is the only valid way to determine how the totality of any given system performs, that's very important, and agreed. I recreated your test using 44.1 kHz sample rate and a 128 sampl...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

Yep, I love Live also, and have used it for fifteen years :D ... And again, just now, the latest project I did was Live all the way. Now that I have kept those massive "traditional" composing projects elsewhere, I've been happier and feel like I'm using these tools according to their strengths, with...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

provides a suggestion for people that only want to use Live (rise audio buffer to a size similar to Reaper's "anticipative processing" and turn on "Reduced Latency When Monitoring" option). I know how it can feel like it, but this isn't at all the same thing ;). The whole point is being able to wor...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

Yep, we are definitely on the same page here. Machiensworking, I gather that you are similarly a "best of both worlds" user like me, choosing the environment you wish to work in based on the task at hand :) It's just like you and jur said, the design goals and the priorities of an efficient "traditi...

Re: Poor Audio Performance in Live with no CPU overload

I think you mis=understood what I was saying with regard to Komplete.. I’m just saying my experierince is with Kontakt with additional libraries I’ve purchased separately, I don’t own Komplete. Okay, no worries :). I just thought it was in order to clarify, when you said this: I have found that run...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

As the comparison with other DAWs, you've already sum it up, so... :wink: Personally, I use both of the ones I mentioned, and wouldn't give up either of them for anything ;). Using Live for the non-linear creative side and sound design madness, and Reaper for the linear composing and recording musc...

Re: Poor Audio Performance in Live with no CPU overload

I am using Kontakt which I believe is part of Komplete so I would guess it operates in principally the same manner. No, actually when your project contains many Kontakt instruments (that is, many Kontakt hosted .nki instruments, not "many Kontakt instruments" as in many Kontakt VSTi instances), it ...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

Go to the Board Index; scroll down and you'll see the total registered users count: 113339 I actually wrote my post after I checked that figure ;), as I've seen the number grow during the years, and I assume that contains all registered users since the dawn of time. Instead of being representative ...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

17 pages for about a few hundred thousands users... How many customers using Live 10 are active users on this forum? The forum isn't mentioned anywhere on the ableton.com main site, even in the "Community" links section. Under the Community headline, there's only "Find Ableton User Groups", "Find C...

Re: Remove distinction between FREEZE and FLATTEN

It's actually possible to do deep freeze manually: #1: Drag the track you want to deep freeze into your "current project" folder #2: freeze and flatten track Now, if you want to "go back", delete this track, then drag the original track back into the project. Yep, this is what I often do, also to s...

Re: Remove distinction between FREEZE and FLATTEN

But you're right, sometimes you don't want to unload the instrument, as it takes longer to unfreeze (or unflatten) when the instrument is unloaded. So we need both options available, each with just one click. You mean three options: freeze, deep freeze and flatten. Each of these could be entered in...

Exactly. It's a specific thing that has its own use. No sense removing it altogether.

Re: Access standard menus (File, Edit..) when in fullscreen

Bump, almost a year later. Just feels silly having to disable full screen mode just to use a menu item.
