Re: How to "Open" live sets without load time?

Holding the samples in RAM is a feature of VEP. I'm not aware of that feature being available in in any other DAW. Certainly not in Ableton Live. The Window gaming folks sometimes us a RAMDisk like this http://www.radeonramdisk.com/software_downloads.php You might be able to copy your samples to the...

Re: New User Please Help!

In answer to the OP Regardless of whether you are using Ableton or Garageband, there a few basic steps to recording. I'm going to assume you have installed the various drivers need to get the Focusrite Solo to work on your Mac. 1. The mic needs to be plugged into the Focusrite Solo, this is the 3 pi...

Re: M4L for musicans, NOT programmers?

Interactive Composition by Manzo & Kuhn, Oxford University Press. Is a pretty good introduction. It is more focused on Live than M4L but the examples are directly musical. I spent about 5 days with the book in July and really found it useful. http://www.amazon.ca/Interactive-Composition-Strategies-U...

Re: How to use two MacBook laptops splitting Monitors

Not sure why you are using two Macs but I can see some serious problems. If both Mac's are opening the same project file and you make different changes to the project file on each Mac, when you save the file. the last file saved will overwrite that changes in the first file saved. My understanding i...

Re: Is a 4-band EQ enough for most tasks?

One key factor in the 1000s of classic albums is that often a great deal of effort was but into getting the sound recorded right from the instrument. If the recorded sound was great then it didn't need much extra work during mixing. With electronic music the sound tends to be polished all the way th...

Re: M4L Stability

I tried this work arround. Crashed the first time. 2nd time I set a timer and waited 60 secs. Then loaded Polyrthumus (?) without incident. Of course save the M4L device is a bit dubious since it will crash on start up. So I just created some midi clips to work with and removed the M4L plug in from ...

Re: LIVE 9.2b1 Discuss....

Just read the thread to this point.
As one of these folks with Windows 7 and experiencing frequent M$L crashes, I was very disappointed to find this problem is NOT fixed in the beta.

Re: M4L Stability

That is interesting about Window 10. I was on Windows 8 but my firewire attached Focusrite Luquid 56 was a complete disaster so I reverted back to Windows 7. Is it accurate to say that Windows 8.1 users are not experiencing the same M4L crash epidemic that Windows 7 user are. If it is true I think i...

Re: M4L Stability

Bump Same behavoir as most of the other folks posting, ranging from; instantly crashes when a Max device is dragged to a track, when the Max device is the only device in the entire set, to a working set is saved but Live crashes when it tries to open it. This is really getting me thinking about jump...

Re: Best microphone for around $200ish? *please read*

To make a good recommendation, more information is needed, so here are some things to consider. What type of computer is going to be use, Mac or Windows? If Mac then Garageband is an excellent DAW for the intended application. How are you going to get the microphone into the computer? A typical reco...

Re: Made the jump to 64-bit.. Aaand nothing changed.

DAW performance is rather complex to measure. Latency is important when recording. Load time from disk is another factor when adding new instruments or clips The number of instruments/effects that can be used in a track with out dropout Freedom from quasi random interruptions due to other processes ...

Re: 16GB RAM for 32bit Live8...?

Re the OP. You have 8 GB. load up a monitor (Task Manger in Windows, Activity Monitor in Mac i think). Do your thing in Live. Check how much memory you have used up. If you have used up all 8 GB then maybe you could use more memory. However, if you have unallocated memory, and adding more memory tha...

Re: Audio devices stop after Windows goes to sleep

Not sure if this helps. It is a script that will setup the system so that when it goes to sleep the power stays on for the USB ports.
