Re: how to set up Live to load VST instead of AudioUnit?

One reason I use VST if at all possible, not to mention I can't put AUs into folders to organize them to my liking. Except Reaktor, because NI is a soulless, bloodless corporation (being cheeky) that will not let me move the Reaktor VST plugin to any folder, or suddenly DAWs can't find it. It's the ...

Re: Run Mac Ableton projects on Windows running Ableton

Another confirmation. I actually used to run Live via Parallels and pointed the Windows Live to the Library on the Mac side.

Re: Does anyone ever use Live's built-in synths?

I think it's very telling that Ableton's in-house synths, Operator and Sampler, are lauded as awesome while the ones outsourced to AAS are not getting much love.

I find use with all of them, but Operator and Sampler are definitely my favorites :)

Re: Route audio from chrome or firefox?

I use Audio Hijack Pro ($30) to record files that I later drop onto audio tracks. I didn't buy it for that, but it's quick and easy to set up.

Every year after the first, these threads show up on every music message board. It's like a tradition, now.

Re: Live 9.1.1 64-bit crashing with Kontakt 4

Live does not wrap 32-bit plugins to 64-bit. Kontakt has been 64-bit since 3.5 iirc >.> JBridge is available for Windows and Mac if you want to run 32-bit plugins in a 64-bit host, and Live32 will create pre-wraped 64-bit AUs on Mac. But again, Kontakt 4 is definitely 64-bit, so just update it. On w...

Re: Push owners: has Push replaced the keyboard?

I don't even own/use a keyboard. Push works out a lot better for me and takes up so much less space :)

Re: Hardware Specs - what is necessary?

I often run Live 9 Suite on a 1.3GHz dual core i5 (2013 MacBook Air w/ 8GB of RAM). It runs better than you'd think. I can run a couple instances of Reaktor Razor on HQ and Audio Damage's Eos reverb and be okay at 512 on the buffer (built-in sound, 24-bit 44.1kHz). 50% on the CPU meter iirc. Those a...

Re: ableton 9 suddenly has become unusable slow!

as of today, ableton is hitting cpu peaks really easily. i mostly use ableton plugins, i sample hardware using the external instrument plugin, so most of my stuff is samples. i have one track using a korg m1 plugin. why would ableton slow down sooo much all of a sudden? other tracks ive made that u...

Re: got a MBPro now I need a monitor

OS X 10.9.1 may have fixed the external display issues of 10.9, but I haven't verified this myself. I know on 10.9 as soon as you changed the external display from mirrored desktop (default) to extended desktop, it no longer recognizes displays that you connect. I'd look into it a bit to make sure y...

Re: Color calibration again (RGB tool missing)

Ash1 just email Ableton support, they just asked for a pic of my Push and seemed to be willing to hook me up with a copy of the calibration tool once it's verified.

Re: Push quality issues, how to adress them, and UI requests.

I already did. Johannes answered this morning, asked for a pic of my Push (it's not yet registered with Ableton), and seems to be willing to give me a copy of the RGB Tool :)

Re: Push and Live Packs

Konkrete Breaks and Drums show up when I browse Drum Racks. I didn't look and see what is mapped to the knobs, though. I can check tonight if no one chimes in.

Re: Color calibration again (RGB tool missing)

I'm in the same boat, too. Not even google finds that file :lol: Probably should have trolled the Ableton forums a bit more before buying >.> I have searched every page of the Push beta forum and downloaded the 9.1.1b3 release, and have not found this RGB calibration tool itself. Lost of mention of ...
