Re: SSD with Live

my understanding is that there's not a lot of point using an SSD for recording/streaming audio. No appreciable speed increase.

Re: Deleted my ableton plist file

I can't find one. What are you expecting it to contain ? where did you delete it from user library/preferences or Mac OS/library /preferences ?
Did you 'save live set as template' ?

Re: Macbook Pro freezes every hour. Crucial M4 SSD Fail

hey GUY... I bought a Crucial M4 256 GB a few months ago to replace the optical drive in my mid 2012 Macbook, but it's still lying around. Would you recommend to get rid of this thing or do you think making a firmware upgrade on a desktop and replace it like I planned would be a good choice (while ...

Re: Macbook Pro freezes every hour. Crucial M4 SSD Fail

fwiw. Crucial have replaced the drive. It was just over a year old, but still fell within their 3 year guarantee period.

Re: Macbook Pro freezes every hour. Crucial M4 SSD Fail

it all sounds like abit of a nightmare! Yeah 'fraid so, although trying to establish what the issue was proved the most stressful bit. i was under the impression that cause an SSD is just ram and not physical like a harddrive its not only going to be alot faster, wear and tear on it wont happen and...

Macbook Pro freezes every hour. Crucial M4 SSD Fail
