Re: How Long Did it Take?

i came to live from nothing (other than archaic tape recorders). if you come in fresh like that you don't have to unlearn things or get caught up in the "what's missing" black hole. made it much easier i suspect.
good luck.

Re: Upgrading whole HD to SSD? Expected performance improve?

by far one of the best upgrades i have ever done. the speed in loading is amazing compared to regular hard drive. don't even think about it (other than logistics of course) do it.

32 bit vs. 64 bit

so have been using live 9.7.1 suite for years and when i first got it i went with 32 bit and have had no issues but i am interested in upgrading my superior drummer 2 to the new 3 and 3 only comes in 64 so looks like i will have to go with 64 on ableton since it requires hosts to be 64 also. the onl...

Re: live10, native lfo, ios vs android, ableton vs bitwig

revolver was done on a four track recorder i believe. archaic compared to what even reaper gives you. sometimes creativity comes from things you can't do. i have grown to love live for not only what it affords me the luxury of doing but what it forces me to do out of compromise. necessity is the mot...

Re: ABLETON LIVE 9 recognizing Korg Kronos

sadly turning on the kronos and interface and then booting up computer and loading ableton did nothing to alleviate the problem.


would love any other suggestions anyone has. this is getting very old and time consuming to say the least. thanks.

Re: Drum midi editing

i do it the archaic way of just duplicating the track how many times of how many individual sounds on set and then silencing the ones on each track that are not necessary. very time consuming

Re: Create your own choir voices

there is nothing more humbling and painful than recording and overdubbing "ooh's and ah's" all the years of thinking you are an acceptable singer for your own tunes go out the window when you start listening back to wordless, held out single note vocals. make sure you have some alcohol nearby afterw...

Re: Best way of transferring from one computer to another?

i just did the same but due to a hard drive failure so i had a nightmare but had backup of my ableton files. if i would have had total back up of everything it would have went so smoothly. so you should not have the issues i had. all i can say is i am so happy and please with just how easy it was to...
