Re: Possible to set Live's preferences remotely?

When you say "remotely", do you mean over a LAN or the Internet? If so, then something like TeamViewer will let you do that job. Or did you mean that Live is running on a headless PC? If so, then I've no idea, sorry. Yeah, I mean headless. The new Microsoft Remote Desktop is great for the usual des...

Possible to set Live's preferences remotely?

I am looking for a way to set Live's preferences remotely, meaning without a monitor/keyboard/mouse. I am working on Windows. More specifically I want to automate setting the audio input and output devices. I don't see anything like this in the Live object model or remote scripts. Live implements it...

Re: Always revert to preferred audio interface when connected?

Putting a piece of software between my DAW and my audio interface drivers? Not a priority. Yeah this isn't ideal if it adds latency. Lowest latency is critical for me as I'm playing with live instruments and trying to play in time with multi-tap delays, etc. For example jack would do that since it ...

Re: Always revert to preferred audio interface when connected?

I wonder if there is some way to create some kind of virtual or proxy audio device that always exists so that Live doesn't have to change it's setting, and then the virtual or proxy software will automatically revert to the hardware when it's plugged in. Anyone heard of something like this before?

Re: Always revert to preferred audio interface when connected?

Should be an easy fix, ey? – Alex No fix is "easy" when you support several major versions of fast moving operating systems. Agreed. As a former music software developer the biggest challenge by far is supporting so many platforms. The complexity of developing a VST/AU/RTAS in different hosts on di...

Re: Always revert to preferred audio interface when connected?

It's not a flaw of Ableton but rather the OS and audio/MIDI drivers. I disgree. Every DAW out there has the capacity to listen to an event for when an audio device is added or removed, and can choose whether or not to provide a feature to store the name of a preferred device and to re-enable it whe...

Way to avoid popup dialogs in Live (ie save changes)?

I am running Live on a headless (no monitor or keyboard) PC and need to figure out a way to tell it to load a set or shut down without popping a dialog asking for user input. Specifically these common cases come to mind: - loading a set file without askin to save changes in the current set. - Exitin...

Always revert to preferred audio interface when connected?

I have a situation where I run Live without a monitor or keyboard and need to get Live to always use my preferred audio interface (RME FireFace UCX via USB) whenever it is available. This is important because sometimes I need to unplug the audio interface while the computer is running, and if Live i...

Re: Understanding Push's button color codes

I am trying to get a button to pulse smoothly from bright green to the darkest green, sort of like fading opacity. For slow blinking (pulsating) you need to send the color(note) on midi channel 10. For fast blinking you need to send the note on midi channel 14. Before that you need to send the base...

Re: Smallest comp to run Live on a pedalboard?

We'll see, I've done a lot of system integration work like this professionally, as well as a few personal projects like car PC's (pre-iPod) that have a similar power use case. The PC config itself shouldn't be a problem, including reliability and troubleshooting. I'll be sure to document everything ...

Re: Smallest comp to run Live on a pedalboard?

No need for a screen, i will Remote Desktop just to troubleshoot. Also I already have an RME UC. I will automate it to load a set at boot, even change sets on midi foot pedal. Just copy the sets over via wifi. I just bought one with 120GB/4GB and i5 dual core 2.6Ghz. I think this is going to be aeso...
