Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

some kind of conspirational theory then that's not an useful attitude. that's not a useful word. you could at least have the decency of using real words when you're going the long winded route of being condescending. @ Guillermo, do you have indexing turned on in Windows? if so, maybe you could do ...

Re: iMac getting slow. What are the options?

An important note! Do not use SSD for backup or as any disk for lots of Write activities. SSD's have a very short life span if you use it for continuous backups and lots of write activities. You can burn them out within 1-2 years. Can become very expensive. Just a waste of money to use expensive SSD...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

I have done the "replace" option during upgrade to Live 9.6. The User Library and some other stuff was then indeed moved to a so called _Updated folder. So I had to move it back, which I did. That _Updated folder is now empty, so it hasn't move stuff back there and in preferences the User Library i...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

No backups/clones? The last two weeks no. I had been struggling so much with all the crashing and hanging issues with Ableton Live 9.5, Push 2 and the Focusrite, that I was happy when I actually got things running for a bit to actually do something. So I forgot. :( When upgrading to Live 9.6 last w...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

When you installed your new Live did you "Upgrade or replace" when asked? You may find it simply did not carry over your library from the previous installed version. Not sure on MAC but on Windows in \ProgramData\USER\AppData\Roaming\Ableton\[Ableton version] You have a folder for each Live version...

Re: Too risky to buy a firewire interface these days?

Firewire def is better than USB2 in terms of in/out. No experience of USB3 for audio. If you are on a Mac, then a Firewire to Thunderbolt adapter sounds great and will keep your firewire unit going for years. At least Macs have some forward compatability, nothing exists like that for PCs, it seems....

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

Guillermo, I've just seen on the web that the latest Adobe CC update had a bug which... deletes files on the system! Are you a CC subscriber by any "chance"? BTW, I think you should get in touch with support@ableton.com now. That is also on Mac and on OSX main disk, first folder in alphabetical ord...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

I'm confused by "deleted all folders in your custom user library" Do you mean - the folders aren't in "places" or the folders have been deleted? It shouldn't delete files ... Unless you were saving or moving things in the Live library. That stuff will always get overwritten. the browser isn't built...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

Sometimes when I quit Live, it does not actually terminate Live's process in Win 10. When I restart Live, two Live processes are running. When that happens, my library is blank. Terminating all the Live processes and restarting Live resolves the issue. Hope this helps. Well that is scary, as I inde...

Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

Today I fired up Live 9.6 again after a week break and to my horror it has deleted all custom folders in my User Library! It's completely empty and back to default like a new installation. You got to be kidding me?? :evil: I am seriously starting to lose my patience with Ableton. Luckily most (but n...

Re: "This Laptop" and Ableton live

Thanks for your input. Yeah, I suppose 5400 RPM really is terrible. I`ve operated with a 7200 RPM harddrive up until now and even with this loading times were a disaster. Well I guess I`m stuck with my desktop then until the new MBPs are released :( I surely won`t buy an outdated MBP and every acce...

Re: "This Laptop" and Ableton live

The CPU is fine and the RAM is fine. What is not fine, is the 5400 RPM harddrive. Can't believe they still put them in these days. /sigh Unless you only use hardware synths, you going to get some trouble with VST's with large patches and huge Libraries. All decent Laptops these days have an SSD driv...

Re: Too risky to buy a firewire interface these days?

Of course, you can now buy Thunderbolt interfaces including ones from Focusrite. If I was buying a new interface for a Mac today, that's what I would get. I don't think we'll see USB 3 interfaces for a while. If they are smart we will not see USB 3 Interfaces at all, but an immediate jump to USB-C....
