Re: Live has made a very serious error

Well it did it again, BTA light was not lit, it seems to be only this single automation envelope that is not printing. The set sounds correct and the render is wrong.

Confounding!

Odd thing is the timestamp of the modified .als is now 3:04 where last night it was 3:07. Apple!

Re: Live has made a very serious error

One thing to realize is that you need to use "Back to Arrangement" in order for the export to be based on the Arrangement only. It's possible to mix Session with Arrangement. This could be a source for creating this discrepancy you're having. Another more likely source, is that you mixed up the exp...

Re: Live has made a very serious error

This is surely the worst thing I've ever seen Live do Really? Overreacting much? It's obviously your duty to listen to the renders to make sure they're fine. Considering how complex today's projects can get with 3rd party VSTs, hardware and automation such things can and will happen, in any DAW not...

Solved: Live has made a very serious error

All things relative. I took a week off from final mixing my album, ready to master the tracks. I took one last listen playing renders in Quicktime and noticed a mistake that I thought I had fixed. Playing back my Live set showed the mistake WAS fixed (an automated envelope on Utility gain). Just to ...

Re: Live 9 with Mac OS X FileVault2 disk encryption?

Yes, makes sense to not use on a live performance machine. Do you know what caused the kernel panics? In 12 years of using Macs I've never had one. The thought of it makes my kernel panic.

Re: matching levels across an album

So in mastering you set the maximum volume of your loudest/most intense track by - as Tarekith said - adjusting how much final limiting you apply to that track. This defines the overall peak perceived volume of your album. In other words this is where you put a stake in the ground and say "this is ...

Re: matching levels across an album

So you are using the threshold level as your volume adjustment? And that is not problematic in regards to overly-squashing some of the peaks?

matching levels across an album

When readying tracks for distribution and printing what is the best way to raise or lower the final render so that perceived volume of all tracks are balanced? At the moment I am using Ozone 7 standalone, but also have Studio One 3 available. I want to set a ceiling of -.7dB and dither and be done. ...

Re: Audio glitches on Macbook pro 2015 i7, 16 gb ram..

I bought the same computer you have (mine had the highest ghz i7 they had available) and at 64 sample buffer it would not run Omni and Komplete without pops and crackles. My 2011 MBP was able to run the set without a glitch. I sold the 2015 and bought a 2014, top of the line. It runs my set perfectl...

Re: Studio One

Yes, good to remember to start new recordings in the new DAW! Old habits die hard sometimes. The only reason I would need Live at this point is for the Looper. Not sure if there is anything better as a VST for mac, recent searches did not look too promising. I don't know how you interface with your ...

Re: Experimental Music Questions from a Newbie

Some of that music sounds like they are using samplers to trigger odd-time-signature and random and glitchy grooves and sounds. As opposed to being locked into a grid like Live. Maybe the Octatrack? Are you wanting to be a one-man(or woman)-band? The problem is you have 2 hands and play a 2-handed i...

Re: The future of Live - should we worry? (video)

Soon we will see if LiveX will be the app of choice for beat making or pro arranging or for BOTH. I say both. Live has extreme competition from NI for beat making. But my guess is that Live 9 is already fully developed with very little new territory to be achieved in that department. If they develop...
