Re: Utility for vocal clip gain question

The signal is running trough a stereo track of the mixer, so just leave it at stereo. It's perfectly possible to apply stereo effects to a mono signal, though one can use a the mono setting of Utility to make sure mono is maintained. A Dual Mono file is a stereo file with a mono signal with less vo...

Utility for vocal clip gain question

I know Ableton doesn't recognize mono or something like that but when recording into 1 input you get a mono wav form. This vocal take I'm working on gets a lil hot in some areas and I tried evening it out by splitting and leveling clip gain this way as it's nice to see the wav form actually get smal...

Re: I think I need a new Macbook Pro...and I need help!

i think the overheating was for the i9 Already fixed by an Apple patch. that's awesome news! still i'm glad i returned it for an iMac pro, i think you had mentioned that if portability wasn't an issue(and it isn't for my main production computer at least) than an iMac is a better more powerful choi...

Re: I think I need a new Macbook Pro...and I need help!

i had been going through the same issues as you with my 2015 dual core i5 with 8 gb of ram, literally upwards of 5 or more freezes an arrangement. So i bought the new maxed out MBP i9 6-core 32gb of ram and it was a disaster for me, under big arrangements and heavy sustain loads the i9 for whatever ...

Re: CPU load from native Ableton EQ vs Fabfilter Q2 - SURPRISING

That is strange as I’ve experienced the opposite, the Ableton plugs are much easier on my cpu but I still go with fab filter stuff I use a good amount of fab filter stuff and notice whenever I open the plug-in window during playback to change something my cpu jumps drastically! (But not for long, ne...

Re: Mac Pro vs Macbook Pro

Hi! I have so much problems with my macbook pro 2015 i7, 16gb. The CPU Load is horrible. So I want to buy a new machine. Would a mac pro with 6 core, 32gb Ram be a better choice? Or are 8 cores much better and necessary? p.s.: I have already set the sample rate to 512 and pimped everything that was...

Re: Going to be getting a new MacBook pro and need some advice

early reports coming out are that the MBP chassis can't cope with the heat pumped out by the i9 hexacore chip, and it thermal throttles badly under sustained load... i knew right away when loading a pre bounce maxed out midi arrangement and the fan came on almost instantly that it wasn't for me. Ho...

Re: Mac Pro vs Macbook Pro

i just bought the new i9 6 core 32 gb of ram MBP and tested it with one of my pre bounce maxed out midi arrangements and the fan came on almost immediately and ram was really getting eaten up, although it held up i just couldn't imagine that fan always being on and how the thing would respond if i d...

Re: Going to be getting a new MacBook pro and need some advice

@jamief and @Artcutech, what made you go with 32gb? You feel you need this now or are you preventing the lack of RAM in the future? So i really don't like bouncing anything, i understand clearing up the vst's to audio eventually but i want to treat mixing chains before the final gain staging so tha...

root note for user audio in Omnisphere Ableton tweak

so Omnisphere 2's user audio allows you to set the root note by putting it in the file name, but for some reason in order to get the desired note placement in Ableton you have to put the file name an octave higher. For example by default i'm at C3(middle C) if i put my root note in the file name let...

Sorry i meant 70% faster @ fishmonkey, and the MacBook pro's i'm talking about just came out this week(i think? i got an e-mail on the 12th) so i felt like jumping on one That depends on your arrangement and what you put in your tracks, doesn't it?
