Re: Windows 10.. Is it a lemon?

Windows 10 has been working fine for me. So has my Focusrite 8i6 which is nearly four years old at this point. It's interesting to know what Sample rate you are using in Ableton? Default 44,1kHz? As my problems with the Focusrite 6i6 (crashes, hangups, etc) started when using 48 kHz sample rate in ...

Re: Windows 10.. Is it a lemon?

Well in case With Focusrite, it's just bogus! They put up a site With Windows 10 compatibility and the 6i6 was supposed to be Windows 10 ready. Well.... it wasn't. Total bogus, as the Mix Control 1.8 is the last release and was last updated / released in March 2014. Almost 2 years ago! So I returned...

Yeah right. I had to laugh too.

I just ordered a cheap black keyboard stretch cover. Will cover all my gear at once. Cheap and effective!

Re: Windows 10.. Is it a lemon?

Just traded in my Focusrite 6i6 for the Steinberg UR44.

So far I am able to run Live 9.5 again without it hanging. /fingers crossed.

So thats an improvement at least.

Re: USB Audio Interface Recommendations, Please?

The Steinberg UR44 for example is more affordable and has a class compliant switch. So when the time comes that Steinberg stops supporting it, you can continue using it in Class compliant mode. I am looking at the RME Fireface UC, but I don´t know if I can justify double the price of the UR44 at the...

Re: Windows 10.. Is it a lemon?

I have a lot of issues as well. I think it´s the Focusrite drivers in my situation and conflicts with the Push 2. Focusrite hasn´t updated the Scarlett drivers for nearly 2 years! So I am going to return my 6i6 today and probably get the Steinberg UR44 instead. At least Steinberg keeps updating thei...

Re: USB Audio Interface Recommendations, Please?

I've heard good things about the Steinberg audio interfaces, supposedly they test as well as some much higher end soundcards. Haven't heard one myself though. For some reason it seems like the Focusrite cards seem to be having a lot of issues lately, not sure why. Could just be more peopel have the...

Re: Live 9.5 crashes/issues

Had to go back to Beta 9.6 b1, as 9.6 b2 is terrible and unstable like hell! Same as current Live 9.5! So I seriously hope this b2 isn't a release candidate! If they going to release that as 9.6.0 live release I'm done with Ableton, return the Push 2 and ask for refund of my recent Suite upgrade. I ...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

I am currently running Ableton Live 9.6 beta 1 and do notice that I have to hit the pads a lot harder now to Reach 100% velocity. Not happy! it was mentioned in the beta notes that the interim 'fix' for the pad response would have that side effect... Well right now it´s crazy! For a lot of synth pa...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

Just keep in mind that not everyone plays Push the same way, so you don't want a fix for one group of users to alter how other people have gotten used to it too. They just need to make a configurator tool of some sorts, so people can adjust things themselves. I am currently running Ableton Live 9.6...

Re: What controller

Hello all, I switched over to Ableton not long ago and I make mostly sampled and looped based music. I'm interested in getting a controller as I think being able to map loops to slices and get them spread over peads will help in getting more creative. Its also nice to be able to control reverb leev...

Re: USB Audio Interface Recommendations, Please?

Well that's encouraging regarding Live 9.6. But are you referring to improved smoothness playing audio, or just Live freezing up & crashing? Ableton Live 9.5 was unusable for me on my Windows 10 PC. It ran ok on my MacBook Pro on OSX, but on my main machine, Windows 10 PC it was terrible. It took m...

Re: USB Audio Interface Recommendations, Please?

I have the Scarlett 6i6 now and it works fine. I had a lot of stability issues with Ableton Live 9.5 on Windows 10 and thought at first that it was an issue with the Scarlett drivers, as it hang-up and crashes went away when I turned off the Scarlett Interface. But since I run Ableton Live 9.6 beta ...
