Live 10 CPU grumble

Got tired of trying to solve the CPU meter spitting and glitching so put the same set into 9.7 32 bit. Totally stable. A live set that starts at 30% in L10 and then glitch spits up and down to 50% pretty soon in use, sits at 18% in L9 and goes up to 28% max. I know there are lots of variables, my sy...

Re: Anyone used a KMI softstep 2 successfully with Live?

So what happens when you switch to Standalone mode within the editor?

Re: CPU usage mysteriously spiking high-end PC

I get spikes when running external monitors from the laptop that has Live on it. If I disconnect the monitors, spiking goes away. So have you looked at video card issues, something that may have changed after your reinstall?

Re: Anyone used a KMI softstep 2 successfully with Live?

Yes, I use SS2 with Live, works fine. It's a bit clunky sometimes, software wise. If you have the LOAD message permanently showing, you need to reinstall the firmware. I have had that problem a few times - seemingly randomly. And the FW reinstall always fixed that. Standalone mode works OK for me. T...

Re: Buffer/CPU load gone bonkers in the middle of a live show

Yeh, sorry to say, Looper does do some wierd stuff sometimes - something in the buffer zone. That's my suspicion. Good luck, I hope you get it fixed.

Re: CPU Performance nightmare

Also have had erratic CPU behaviour with Live 10 (but not Live 9 32bit). Lenovo thinkpad, Win 7, nvidia GPU, i7 2.4ghz, SSD, 16 GB ram I disabled CPU throttling in the BIOS (which ups the CPU temps dramatically, take note) and set Max performance in the Nvidia 3d settings. This gave me a clean slate...

Re: Let's talk about the CPU !

Not to hijack the thread, but here's my experience as a Windoze user with CPU in Live 10. I'm on Win7, i7 Quad core @2.4ghz, 16gb RAM with a NVIDIA GPU. It's a 2012 Lenovo thinkpad - yeah, getting old. All versions of Live 10 have randomly given me CPU spikes when using my regular Live set (no clips...

Re: Ableton Live 10 for TV Film Scoring?

Echoing other comments. I have used Live for film (music, editing audio and sound design). But I know from my experiences that it definitely is not perfect and, sad to say because I do like the toolset in Live, I won't risk using it for my next movie project - especially if i have to import EDLs or ...

Re: Syncing Video File With Audio Recorded In Ableton

If you want to sync inside Ableton, you'll have to do it manually. I do it this way, others might have a different or better way of doing it: Look for significant waveform events in both audio files. Line them up roughly. Zoom right in. Create a locator point to have a vertical line and move that li...

Re: "Places" keeps "Refreshing/Searching" for samples. Ableton 10.1

I also get the places wheel spin when the application launches. This is the Ableton Index(ing) app, which does stop after a while, but maybe starts up from time to time for a refresh. Only a potential problem if your CPU is getting taxed with a live set and you need to conserve it. At least that how...

Re: Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

Bump.

Had to use video for the first time in a while. Windows 7 (for my sins). Arrgh! NO DICE :x

So my workaround: downloaded a trial version of Reaper and tried Rewire to Live 10.1.
Ran the video (MP4) into reaper. Hey presto!
WTF Reaper is only 20mb.
IS this a mad idea?

Re: M4L LFO and others not mapping

I reinstalled 10.1 and it's working now............I uninstalled recently after getting some blue screens. Maybe there was some glitch in the install/uninstall to do with Max.

Thanks for your comments.

Re: M4L LFO and others not mapping

Yes, it's been a while since I last used it, which could even have been Live 9. The mapping function is completely unresponsive. Odd.
