Indexing Files and Libraries after Updating to 9.6

Lots of things are missing in the Browser after updating to 9.6. My Live 8 library, my User folder, several directories. One large volume of loops and samples is partially there. My activity monitor show that Live is indexing (90% of one of my cores on my hexacore Mac) when I start Live, but after a...

Re: Best way to integrate iPad into Ableton setup?

iConnectivity hardware works well but may be overkill for you. If you have extra midi hardware and would like to control everything centrally, or two computers and a ipad, or a computer and 2 ipads, then get iConnectMidi 4+. If you don't have a lot of midi hardware, but are also in the market for an...

Re: Konkrete 3: buy the packs or the stand alone product?

You should contact Sonicouture. I think if you buy the Ableton packs they'll give you a license for the Kontakt version (or maybe charge a small fee). I did this, but I can't find the email and can't remember whether they charged me or not. I just remember they were very reasonable and cool about it...

Re: What annoys you about Push 2?

Device parameter labels are gray/dark gray against black on the screen. This is in the GUI Design 101 "Top 5 Things to Avoid" list. Sure, it's aesthetically slick, just bad human factors. Let's hope they don't take two years to fix it.

Re: Push 2 Aftertouch Threshold

Aftertouch threshold is a setting on Push 1. You accessed it from holding down the User Button. I'm just saying that it's missing from Push 2. Push 1 seemed like Aftertouch was too sensitive, kind of like some older Yamaha keyboards. If you weren't careful, you'd engage it when playing normally. The...

Push 2 Parameter Labels in Display are too dim.

I like Push 2 display a lot. Very nice. One thing that would make it much more usable is that the Parameter Labels in the display are shown in a medium/dark gray when in Device mode. There may be other labels in other modes, but this is the one that I've noticed the most so far. This is when display...

Re: Push 2 is stuck on logo screen

I had some problems with USB cables. The one that came with Push is ridiculously short. Yet the one I had used with Push 1 didn't seem to seat correctly in the back of Push 2. I had to try a few cables before I found one that worked. If you have a marginal connection, this might explain the problem.

Push 2 Aftertouch Threshold

Push 1 finally let you configure the threshold for aftertouch by holding down the User button. This doesn't seem to work the same in Push 2. Holding down the User mode button just displays the User mode label. In addition the Online Push 2 manual chapter doesn't seem to say anything about it. Any id...

Push 2 - What about Push 1

Re: Properloop v1.0

The update is running well, and fixes the clipping noise when rapidly switching between segments of loops.

Thanks!

Re: Alchemy now part of Logic Pro X

Now if there were just a reasonable way to slave Mainstage to Live. I know that Rewire won't work for this.

We need to find the software geeks who can do Jbridge and Soundflower type programming to develop something.

I'd pay for that in a heartbeat.
