Re: Mac system opinions, please

agreed... but that is no consolation when you're sitting with your brick that used to be a controller or worse... an interface. no one cares who's fault it is then... they just know they didn't have the problem before the "upgrade". It's just a good lesson learned really. I have now learned my less...

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

I wouldn't buy Firewire anymore. It's obsolete technology and as such many haven't updated their drivers in years. And the Firewire to Thunderbolt adapter from Apple is hit or miss really. With my old M-Audio FW Interface it was a miss. Didn't work. Luckily I could bring the adapter back for refund ...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

I believe **THE ISSUE IS NOT WITH THE MECHANICS OF PUSH2**, it is with the sound pack!! Here's my experience ... For me the is very noticable when I'm using the Guitar sound pack (the default as well as the extra ones that comes with Suite & happens with Bass as well). I noticed that the pack itsel...

Re: Mac system opinions, please

What's wrong with El Cap for you? the reviews are horrible... horrible. getting better admittedly, but hardware issues with audio equipment is enough. it's a crap shoot. the OP came for recommendations, it would be a shame to lose a controller over El Cap. that's no way to start on an Apple platfor...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

I sometimes wonder what the reviewers are on when they write what they write: Music radar review from January: http://www.musicradar.com/reviews/tech/ableton-push-2-632478 For many users, though, it'll actually be the new pads that most justify the upgrade. Push 1's pads were great, but these reall...

Re: One year lost

Also, i thought that apple made some sort of way to locate computers and iphone. A friend of mine got once his iphone stolen during a football match and managed to catch the robber, waiting for the bus, with dozens of other phones in a bag.... You have to manually enable this! Sadly, a lot of Peopl...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

Well the release of 9.6 made it worse really with their so called temporary fix! Seriously peeved off, as I have to litteraly smash on the pads right now and still not able to reach 100% velocity! So I feel like they made it worse now. They better come up with a final solution soon, as my patience i...

Re: I have Push 1 - should I upgrade to 2 -?- worth it,?

I would wait and see how and if Ableton is able to fix the current velocity issues with the Pads of Push 2, before taking the plunge. But that's me. As I now really wish I waited a little longer before buying mine. Don't get me wrong, I love the Push 2, but the issues with the pads is a serious enou...

Re: Push 3 & Live 10

Lol. troll bait or what? It's been nearly three years between release of Push 1 and Push 2 and I hardly doubt Ableton is going to wait till a possible Push 3 to release Live 10, which would be somewhere 2018 or something. I think Ableton has their hands full currently fixing all the issues with Push...

Re: Mac system opinions, please

What's wrong with El Cap for you? Yeah Wonder that too. OSX 10.11 is working great for me. I only had issues with my Focusrite 6i6 both on OSX 10.11 and Windows 10, because Focusrite hasn't updated their drivers since March 2014. Enough said. I have returned it and traded it in for the Steinberg UR...

I have Windows 10 on my laptop at home and PC at work and love it. the privacy stuff is no different than Apple That statement is devoid of facts and is not based on reality. These 2 OSes are not the same on the level of privacy at all. Apple has so far not based their economic model on user info, ...

Re: Is anyone else having controller trouble after 9.6 upgrade?

Yup the 9.6 installer deleted all contents in the folders of half my packs!

So I had to re-import / install them into Live. :evil:

Absolutely ridiculous that such a bug in the installer made it to live. This should have been easily caught during testing.

Re: Is anyone else having controller trouble after 9.6 upgrade?

Make sure all your Controller scripts are still there. Ableton Live 9.6 patcher is crap as usual. Getting fed up With Ableton's half arsed testing practices. In my case, Kompete Kontrol Remote scripts were removed, but that was a 20 second fix! What was far worse, in my case, is that half my packs c...

Re: 11.6 inch Macbook Air

I would definitely go With 8 GB of RAM and an absolute minimum of 256 GB SSD! Or you end up dragging around an external harddrive all the time.
128 GB is nothing and fills up really quickly.
