Re: CPU OVERLOAD AFTER SSD UPGRADE

which SSD is it? are there any reported problems with it? and is it running the latest firmware?

another possibility is that the clone is corrupted. did you run the clone with verification turned on in CCC?

Re: Is my latency good enough or should I try to get it lower?

I am currently testing out a bunch of combinations for my buffer size and sample rate. To make sure that I am getting a good gauge of whether I will hear breaks and crackles during a set, I am stacking midi clips in as many as four tracks and playing them simultaneously. The lowest I have been able...

Re: Ableton Live 10 Suite: Midi Keyboard and Latency

it's always curious when someone who clearly doesn't understand what they are doing berates others who clearly do.

I know this because I am shit at developing and maintaining a coherent interaction metaphor when new features creep into a product. I know myself how I say "fuck it, this is wrong, but then need it by Tuesday". That's exactly what I am looking at here.
ok, so you are at war with evolution!

Usually it's just a matter of throwing darts at a dart board full of ideas when it comes time to add new features. The only stipulatation is that whatever we pick has to be ready to release on a Tuesday.
does the dart board have Angstrom's face on it?

Re: Using External Hard Drives

if you are being prudent you would have two local copies and one offsite copy.

be mindful that RAID systems are not backup systems. RAID provides redundancy, which increases the chance that you can keep working even if a drive fails. a backup is an independent copy, ideally with some history.

Re: Is my latency good enough or should I try to get it lower?

that's a very respectable round-trip latency. the main impact of latency is felt/heard when monitoring through Live when recording or overdubbing. the maximum amount of workable latency depends on who is playing. some people can readily adjust their timing to account for significant amounts of laten...

Re: How to clean the rubbery coating on the sides of Push 2?

i recently noticed that my Push 2 is having the same issue where the TPE coating is degrading and getting sticky.

Ableton support said that they think it is to do with heat or sunlight, but my unit has definitely never been in the sun, nor close to a heater...

Re: Guitar too loud through monitors

it depends how you are monitoring your playing while tracking (recording).

it sounds like maybe you are using direct monitoring from your audio interface, so you aren't actually hearing what is being recorded...

Re: Basic volume/meter question

all metering values are calculated over a specific time window. you can see by the way that the RMS meter lags slightly behind the peak meter that its time window is slightly longer than that used for the peak meter. in theory you can calculate a single RMS value that includes the current state of a...
