Re: 10.6 Snow Leopard Ableton Performance

Wow, you guys are seeing MUCH bigger performance gains than I was after upgrading. I noticed maybe a 2-4% increase in CPU useage, certainly not the 50% you guys are claiming. Did you run the Live 8 performance test and see the same results? http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=111880&hilit=...

Re: 10.6 Snow Leopard Ableton Performance

Couldn't resist installing Snow Leopard this weekend. I erased my hard drive, installed Snow Leopard, Ableton, Reaktor, Guitar Rig, Traktor Pro, and Battery. All I've really tested is Ableton with my Reaktor Plugs. I run an intensive Live Set and was hoping Snow Leopard would seem more stable. So fa...

Re: Midi controllers dont work until I turn off then on???

Preferences> MIDI Sync > Takeover mode: Pickup.. Change that to Value scaling or None.. Value scaling is pretty cool you'll see what it does once you mess around with it and none will make them jump right to where it should be instead of picking up or value scaling. DUDE! Your my hero. Thanks that ...

Re: Midi controllers dont work until I turn off then on???

After I turn everything on then start up Ableton I have to slide faders, turn knobs and push buttons to get Ableton too see them. In my status bar I get a message saying "awaiting pickup" This doesent happen on every knob or button, just most of them. If it's a Reaktor Plug and I am mapped to the Pl...

Re: Midi controllers dont work until I turn off then on???

I have all my gear on a custom console I made (Mac included). Everything stays plugged in. When I turn on the power everything is powered up. All devices are on before I start Ableton. Using OSX Leopard, Latest version of Ableton, Korg and Novation Drivers, etc. However everything USB is plugged int...

Midi controllers dont work until I turn off then on???

This may be a dumb question but ever since I've been using Ableton, after I start it up I have to turn off my Novation REMOTE then turn it back on to get it to activate all my mappings. Most of the time I generally have to turn all the knobs and push all the buttons a few times for them to activate ...

Re: "Configure" mode not working. Add Plugin here!

Your IDs are completely out of range- that never should have worked to begin with. Your max ID is 100, and your max ID in use is 401. After I sorted and compressed IDs, everything's in range. Your max ID always has to be greater than or equal to the max ID in use. Sort and compress IDs is your frie...

Re: Drum Rack SENDS FX

Thats so strange. Especially since the Ableton videos boast such an Un-interrupted Creative Flow. I love this software but some of it's quirks are BASSACKWARDS. I thank you for the response. However I do not wish to duplicate my channels. I have 2 DrumRacks FULL of samples, and 3 Returns to access. ...

Re: Sample Names in Drum Rack disappeared?

I'm not sure what the hell is going on here. Sometimes when "folded" I get all the names without it really folding, it lets me see all of my samples wether a midi note is ticked or not. Sometimes it folds it where only ticked notes appear. Frustrating, cuz I'm not sure why it changes or how to get i...

Sample Names in Drum Rack disappeared?

In my piano roll on drum rack I had all of my drum sample names showing, I added the last 2 samples and for some reason all the names disappeared. Now I only get names when it is folded?

What did I do wrong and how do I get them back. I feel like I've tried everything, what am I missing???

So tonight at band practice we got "some" sync results. I am running Ableton on a MacBookPro connected firewire to an Alesis I/O 26. From the I/O 26 there is a Midi cable going from the "midi out" to the "midi in" on an Edirol UA-101 that is USB connected to a Toshiba Laptop running Fruity Loops. PR...

Re: Ableton GUI freezes!

I just started using program changes to select synth sounds in my Reaktor VSTs. I am using the Ableton 7.0.16. Resizing the screen, toggleing full screen mode etc, FAILS to refresh the screen. It tries to, but this is no solution. It just does not work. I guess I wont be changing synth sounds via Mi...
