Re: MacBook Pro 13” with i5 3.3 or i7 3.5?

Does it have to be MBP, though? 13" will have 7th gen dual-core processor, whereas for same money (or less) you could get Razer Blade Stealth or Dell XP 13 with 8th gen quad-core i7 which should be 40-60% faster at least. https://www.razerzone.com/gaming-laptops/razer-blade-stealth/shop http://www.d...

Re: MacBook Pro 13” with i5 3.3 or i7 3.5?

I searched the forum and couldn’t find exactly the answer I was looking for so I thought I’d post. I’m going to buy a new mbp with touch bar (to get fastest processing), 16gb ram and 512 ssd. I’m wondering if it’s necessary to get the i7 over the i5? I’m planning on getting into making ambient stuf...

Re: Push 3 & Live 10

Live is already summing in 64 bits. It's more than that https://youtu.be/_3jtkuWAOP4 More? There's literally NO information in this video. And what is there is wrong - it's not "twice the precision": 64bit vs. 32bit is actually 4.3 billion times more. Not that it matters, though as with 32bits you ...

Re: Ableton 10 Upgrade question!!

Yeah so I bought Ableton 9 like 2 weeks before they announced 10, along with the announcement that everyone who gets Ableton 9 from now gets a 20% and free upgrade. Did I just lose £300 ? 8O No, I know at least 2 people that bought 9 even 1 month+ before 10 was announced and Ableton gave them free ...

Re: Will Wavetable come with Live Standard, or only with Suite?

The Ableton synths are nothing, nor is the core library coming with them. If you're a complete newbie these might be nice for learning, but if you know of real instruments and other software instruments then there's no way you'd prefer these. Without such preferences, dive right in. You're dead wro...

Re: Will Wavetable come with Live Standard, or only with Suite?

Suite only. https://www.ableton.com/en/live/compare-editions/ One way to look at it, the price difference between Standard and Suite is more or less in the price ballpark of Serum. List for Serum is S189, during the 20% sale the difference between Standard and Suite is $216. Wavetable looks much be...

Re: Live 10: Vote for show/hide automation lanes per track now!

Are you sure you're using 10.b1? Here's a screen grab of mine from a few minutes ago, you can now hide automation on individual tracks like before: https://s25.postimg.org/5lkg4ua8v/Screen_Shot_2017-11-20_at_7.39.22_AM.png Going by that pic, you can hide the dynamic lane by selecting "None", but yo...

Really? I've read the release notes and so nothing... Will re-read now :)

EDIT: Re-read them, still not happy. Just some cosmetic changes & bug fixes :(

Re: Live 10: Vote for show/hide automation lanes per track now!

Voted :P BTW, reading some other comments helped me realise that the solution was *literally* looking in my face every day when I work in Bitwig - just don't overlap the automation lane on the MIDI / audio clips! This allows us to edit the clips - cross-fades, reverses, mutes, stretches, etc. - with...

Re: Live 10: So can you label the sends yet?

So I see from various posts (I am not ready to beta yet) that we will now be able to label ins and out. Excellent! Have we been given the ability to label sends so we dont have to remember where sends A B C D E F G go? Answers or insights much appreciated. No, but why is it even an issue? When you ...

Re: Live 10

Yes, it will look different (track colours have changed and also new global automation visibility mode might affect what you see), but it should play exactly the same.

That's never a given, though. If someone works mostly with MIDI and non sample-based VSTs, 256Gb is plenty for "main system".
