Does anyone know? No, you won't lose content when you uninstall previous versions. Your Library and M...

Re: Question for ableton staff

Which operating system is the most stable for ableton live I.e. Which os has the least OS specific bugs in your experience? :) I'm not sure there's a "right" answer here. Personally, I'm a Windows user, and have had great luck with Live on XP and Windows 7 systems (never tried Vista). On some syste...

Re: Bull - There are waaay less Simpler and Impulse in 8

Ok, got it.

So what, specifically, would you like to see?

It seems the wish is for user-initiated update checking that covers both the application and any applicable/usable content, right?

Thanks,

Re: Bullshit - There are waaay less Simpler and Impulse in 8

I think most users quite like to manually ask the software if there are any updates. I hate to hold NI up as a standard-bearer but their combo of Alert Email ("hey there are updates to your products!"), then the user can manually start the Service Center at their convenience ... that actually beats...

Re: X instances of ableton 'open with default problem'

Hi SubFunk,

I'm not sure about OS X, but on Windows there's a context menu option for documents called "Open with" that allows you to specify a particular executable to use with a given file type.

I would guess there's something similar on the Mac side.

Re: Bullshit - There are waaay less Simpler and Impulse in 8

I think a stand alone "update" app like the NI one might be a big improvement for Ableton. It would sort out all these "do I download the big or small updater?" queries it would allow users to download only packs that they hold licenses for It would allow users to see and access legacy packs etc Th...

Re: Apply Groove to Arrangement View Grid

Hi Simon,

Yes, we've seen this and similar wishes before, but the current state is that grooves are applied to individual clips, rather than to tracks. Thus there's no way currently to apply a groove to the underlying grid.

Re: Rewire and odd meters?

Hi- I often rewire Live's session view into Logic in the process of beat making. It works perfectly fine when only in 4/4 but whenever something is in odd meters, Live behaves really weird: loops are not played from the beginning depending on where in the arrangement Logic is started. I noticed how...

Re: Villalobos hating on Ableton

DeSantis sent me a pm some time ago to warn me that it is not tolerated to use phrases that describe oral interaction with your mother. One could say hilaric but in fact really pathetic. There's a billion dollar music industry out there running on the words "yo motherfucker". I say words like "slur...

Hi folks,

This could have been, and perhaps once was, a relevant discussion.

But I'm moving it to the Lounge now.
