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.

M4L LFO and others not mapping

Can't seem to map anything to the M4L LFO or Envelope Follower/shaper etc.

Any ideas? Clicking or moving a parameter after clicking on Mapping button (which flashes) does nothing.

Re: 10.1. Feedback thread

Yeah well I got three BSOD screens from 10.1 yesterday so I went back to 10.0.6 because I had a gig (luckily didn't overwrite the installation) and no probs with 10.0.6. I did delete the midi remote scripts as usual because I don't like Live taking over my midi controllers and when I looked at the c...

Re: suitability of Behringer FCB 1010 foot controller

I used an FCB1010 for years with live and never had any firmware problems or problems with it running live. There are some editing apps that make programming it a breeze. It's one of the least expensive foot controllers - it used to be very popular. Search for midi foot controls on this forum, there...

Re: VST plugin "favorites" list?

If you don't want to delete any of the plugins: on yr PC, just make a new folder for the VSTs you prefer to use and copy the plugin DLL files over to that folder and then make that the default plug ins folder in Live's prefs.

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

Video in Live 10 has been a massive pain in the a** for me: (Win 7 64 bit with Nvidia card). So much so, that I have sometimes been forced back to Live 9 32 bit just to be able to view a video in Live. Make sure you have Quicktime installed on your PC, because without it, you'll have hassles with vi...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

Good tip on the Zoom settings. I do think that graphics do cause issues with Live (even before Live 10 I used to get issues). My Thinkpad has intel graphics for the laptop screen but external monitors are using an Nvidia card.....

will try the 100% display zoom. I usually have zoom at 120% 8)

Using Win7 but those features are also there. All at 100%. Am trying Process Lasso again to keep an eye on things.

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

Live 10 still spike-ing out the CPU meter and producing audio glitches. I stripped my live set down and no change. The spikes tend to start after 20 minutes or so. Got some 32 bit VSts being jbridged - each instance of which, according to process lasso, uses up CPU. I use a lot of long delays and fr...
