Live 10 where are the presets for Electric?

Why does Electric now only ship with a few patches for Piano and Keys, where are the rest (used to have lots more keys as well as lots of experimental and mallet sounds)? I tried copying them over from Live 9 to the core content folder inside the Live application (on Mac you can open it up) but it s...

Latest update is impossible

It just sits in the dock for ages doing nothing when I start it up - I can go and make a coffee and it might be open by the time I get back, plus it takes ages to close too. What has happened?

Re: Post your most obscure Ableton Live knowledge

I first posted this one over 10 years ago (worked it out my first day with Live as I'd been used to using a similar method with graphics plugins in Painter) so probably this is more well known now: https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=44049&start=0&hilit=shortcuts+aliases these days I use s...

How to return track colours to the original colours?

Since the last update everytime I open Live the tracks are automatically coloured in some garish colour, is there a way to stop it doing that and to tell it which colour to use for tracks? (Ideally I want it how it used to be)

Re: Using Logic X Alchemy inside Ableton

Isn't this just a new version of Soundflower (but no longer free)?

Re: Chromaphone2 - demo sounds amazing . . .

What Chromaphone 1 had over Collision was the ability to couple the 2 resonators which greatly increases the amount of sounds it can produce. Chromaphone 2 adds microtuning, better noise filter bank and a LPF filter, a new drumhead model and much better performance features, it's well worth the upda...

Re: Thunderbolt on new iMac Retina : not enough power ?

Doesn't it have its own power supply?

Re: More than one plugin custom folder?

My Ableton Live vst folder is made entirely of shortcuts. I don't keep the actual dlls in there. It is made explicitly for Live. I have one 'pool' folder, which is every single vst shortcut, and I have 'Ableton' folders which only have the vsts I know I'd use in Live. If I ever have a vst messing w...

Re: 9.6 what's with the upgrade button?

Thanks but not only did that not work, I'm still seeing the upgrade button, but now Sampler is loading with a patch not in its init state. How do I reset it?

Re: 9.6 what's with the upgrade button?

There should be a global option to just use the new mode, I really don't care about the sound being changed, it's hardly noticeable anyway.

Re: 9.6 what's with the upgrade button?

It's stupid calling it an upgrade button then, it made me think I had not properly authorised Live and it was running some plugins in demo mode. They should call it something more understandable like legacy mode.

Re: 9.6 what's with the upgrade button?

Yeah but this is for single patches, not projects, and it reappears every time I load the patch even if I do click it, so it's not even doing anything.
