Re: Turn off indexing

here's a workaround for the Indexer not indexing stuff right away:

how to save a compressor preset and have it remember the sidechain source?

i've got a default template with a standard sidechain channel set up, and i've got a preset for the compressor with the correct settings for everything to use it, saved as a .adv. annoyingly though, when i drag it into a project, i have to choose the sidechain source again every time, it doesn't rem...

Re: Turn off indexing

as i find myself having to use the task manager to kill the Indexer process, so that I can save a project, a few times a day, i reflect on how miserable i am that Ableton does not consider this a showstopping bug to fix, but a "feature" to "wish for" (and conveniently ignore because they don't get e...

Re: Turn off indexing

It looks like I have a lead on what made Live crap out in the first place! I removed the directory where I keep my project files from Places, and Indexer "Configuring Places" times are down to an acceptable-a-f 5 seconds (from, remember, 27 MINUTES).

Re: Turn off indexing

This thing has so thoroughly soured me on using Live that I did not even TRY to make music since last October. Please, please allow us to turn off the Indexer and access the disk directly. I miss music making so much :(
