Re: Turn off indexing

i've been forced to use live 8 for a while on a different computer, and it's such a marked difference, fast and responsive, i dread going back to live 10, i wish i had never upgraded

Re: Collaboration with someone using a PC

ableton live cannot use the equivalent vst to automatically replace an au in a project (or the other way around). you will have to save the patches in the manufacturer's format, swap out the plugin, and hope they can read preset files generated on the other platform

Re: Turn off indexing

if it's too difficult for your team, you could ask these people: https://www.voidtools.com/

their tool wants to do the same things as the indexer, but it works.

Re: Turn off indexing

oh here's another great thing: it's not like it allows users to type in a search term and get all matching files. haha, no. instead it locks the UI, then does nothing for a few minutes, then starts populating the results with the wrong thing because you wanted to type "taiko" and after two letters i...

Re: Turn off indexing

i just timed Live from starting the app to being able to even select the "open file" option in the menu, and it took 7 minutes. that can't be right, can it? could you at least not lock the UI while the indexer is choking

i just noticed there doesn't appear to be a single link from www.ableton.com to this forum

do you think they even know it's still here? how long do you think before it's closed?

Re: How to use the sample browser as intended?

hey, thank you for the in-depth reply! i as well have organized my samples in a sensible folder structure (there are apparently too many for Live's liking, though - any tips on how to avoid the program becoming unresponsive for 5-20 minutes at a time while the sample indexer chokes on my collection?...

Re: How to use the sample browser as intended?

Bump :)

Does anybody use samples in Live? What are your workflows?

Re: Turn off indexing

it's not even used to locate missing media files, where it would actually be useful

Re: Turn off indexing

PLEASE REMOVE THE INDEXER


none of the things that used to work to curb its excesses help any more



i would seriously pay extra for a version of live with just direct disk access and no indexing at all


PLEASE

Re: extract chain with automations and volume

yeah, that's an old one. Please report to support@ableton.com Even though its indeed a known issue, more complains means more chances for this to be put on the top fixes list. maybe this reply should be made a banner image for the whole forum. nothing you care about will ever be fixed, but keep sho...

Re: Turn off indexing

Hahah you know what setting the Indexer to Idle also fixed? The thing where Collect All And Save would stop updating the dialog after the third or so file and freeze for a few minutes. God how I don't miss that. The Indexer really seems to be the weakest point of Live, code-wise? It's also the reaso...

Re: Things you miss from previous versions of Live

But the thing that really really messes with the way I do things live is that 9 does not recognise symlinks. The thing is, my setup is as part of a band, with a load of short songs which I load separately. I used to have a "setlist" folder with aliases of the tracks I was going to use which made th...

Re: Turn off indexing

Thank you for this! I've been having a lot of trouble with Live freezing for up to 5 minutes sometimes, becoming completely unresponsive. This will happen when Live regains focus after a while, or when I'm loading or saving. I've started smoking again because of the enforced 5 minute breaks, not a j...
