Someone who is serverly colour blind may find it really difficul...

UI looks nice. i'm hearing a ton of aliasing in the sound, need to play with it more to see if i like it's tone or not. biggest bummer for me; i was really hoping this thing could run in full screen mode. i'd think it would be great to run stand...

Live 3 runs insanely good on my MBP, regardless of Rosetta. Live 7 runs like a stir fried shit, regardless of everything.

I never came anywhere near the CPU limit on my MBP ever. You should be able to have 50+ sampler instances (without any effects).... wow, i'm not seeing any where near that performance. i have a 2.33 MBP with 2GB RAM and a single, one layer Sampler with no effects puts me at around 26-30%. i've move...

How Many Simultaneous Samplers?

y'all,

approx how many usable instances of Sampler can you expect to get on something like a current MacBook with plenty of RAM? just a round guess will do.

thanks.

you're not going to achieve anything with just one or the other running. short story is Live's instruments and fx only work in Live, and Logic's instruments and fx only work in Logic. unless you are willing to route audio all over the place then you are S.O.L. forget it with the PowerBook. i can't e...

agree with OP on the Saffire. i have it and hate it with a passion. i'm looking at the Korg Zero. tweakage is amazing but i can't get a solid answer on the quality of the pres etc. i know a lot of people with Presonus and are real happy with them.
