Re: Ableton Live 10 Suite keeps crashing after left inactive for several hours

I had this with a Windows PC. I spent weeks trying to track it down and the Abes couldn't help me even though they did try. In the end it turned out to be related to speed stepping. When Live and the PC weren't being used, after a while, the CPU clocks down to save energy. But the moment the PC dete...

Re: What is sped up/improved by an Audio Interface?

Using lower latency settings seems to improve midi timing when sending midi data through Live. That is, playing a midi controller (or external sequencer) and letting Live then send that data out to an external instrument can corrupt the outgoing data. You can get sloppy timing and even hanging notes...

Re: just a rant...

That's really helpful, thanks... As a site admin surely it would be wise to help the user with a problem. I was going to suggest that Emanresu0891 does send a report in. I have found for the most part Ableton staff are very willing to solve problems so long as you give as much detail as you can in ...

Re: just a rant...

I had major problems with Live crashing a a few years back. Ableton were really good and tried to help but couldn't. In the end Pete Kaine at Scan pointed me in the direction of a motherboard setting that involved speed stepping the CPU so that in idle the CPU clock would drop. It turned out that on...

Re: NI Komplete vs Moog Sub37

Do buy a hardware synth of some sort. Buying second hand will give you a bit more cash to spend on other toys. Bear in mind though, adding a hardware synth (or effects) does change your workflow - you'll need to deal with external midi or USB and you'll encounter timing problems as well as adding wi...

Re: Excellent choir/vocals sound

If you like the synthetic choir sounds of the Roland VP-330 you may like these presets I have done: http://www.oakleysound.com/Live9_FX.zip Included in the above bundle are some interesting experiments with vocal filters based on the ones in the Roland VP-330 and using Live's own EQ8. These are desi...

Re: Live 9.7-another update for Simpler,but what about Sampler?

I'd like to see Impulse improved a little. Nothing fancy. Just a few more channels, better quality pitch shifting and more filters. But I have a feeling that Impulse will end up in the next update being 'automagically' turned into drum racks complete with the new look Simpler. +1 for Angstrom's disl...

Re: Live 9.6 - Anyone else got the little purple hand?

Thanks Erik. Just done that. I've never seen that controller section before. I guess it must have been there in 9.1 but I've not noticed it before. I've still kept the remote section ticked for my controller in the midi I/O list so I can control things - but only as I've set them up and not automati...

Re: Live 9.6 - Anyone else got the little purple hand?

Right I understand now. I've just never seen it before and have always set up my controllers manually. I'm still not sure that I like to have controllers connecting themselves behind the scenes so it would be nice to be able to turn it off. Thanks for the help though. It's very much appreciated. Tony

Re: Live 9.6 - Anyone else got the little purple hand?

do you have anything selected as 'control surfaces' in midi preferences? Yes, Ive got my Roland A300 Pro. But the thing is that it's not set up to control anything - well, at least, I've not set up anything. And in 9.1.7 no little purple hand came up but now in 9.6 it does. Do you have an Arturia p...

Yes. But it's not set to control anything in most of my sets other than notes.

And none of the devices have anything I've set to be controlled.

Live 9.6 - Anyone else got the little purple hand?

Just updated to Live 9.6. All seems to be working except that all my plugins used in a set now have a little purple hand on them. This seems to imply that they have parameters that are being controlled externally which they are not. I didn't have it in 9.1.7. Anyone else found this?

Re: the ultimate "I love Ableton BUT..." thread

Improve (actually fix) the midi throughput integrity. midi when sent into Live and then straight out again will be messed about with. Note lengths are subtly changed and midi CC data is lost. I've reported it several times so I'm hoping it's going to get fixed at some point. It's a nightmare when us...
