Re: Are there any statistics on how many people use Live 9 vs 10?

the thing with Native Instruments is that their hardware and software breeds like rabbits, and it's just too much work for them to support it all. i have mostly steered clear of their stuff for this reason.

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

for best performance a music production machine needs to be configured like a live performance machine, which means minimising background processes. Norton in particular have been hobbling Macs for many many years!

Re: Live foot controller other than Behringer?

nah, for me it's that the size and bulk is out-of-proportion to the functionality provided. also, when you travel a lot size and weight does matter.

as for Depeche Mode, i reckon the copious amounts of drugs made lugging all that gear easier, haha.

Re: Live foot controller other than Behringer?

i have mixed feelings about the FCB1010.

they are good value for sure. but for me way too chunky and heavy, and the stock firmware is a bit clunky.

i have a SoftStep 2 now, but do like the look of the Nektar Pacer too.

Re: Focusrite + 1/4 cable gives constant hum/buzz noise while recording in Ableton

probably a ground loop. are you using your MacBook on battery or mains power? if you are using mains power, are you using a 2 or 3 prong plug?

also, the synth should be going into a line input, and the guitar into one of the instrument inputs.

Re: My CMD+OPT+L and CMD+OPT+I are broken

they work fine here in Live 10. most likely cause is that they have been re-mapped to something else in the keyboard system preferences, or by some other app you have installed...

Re: melodyne won't show in plugins

the Celemony website says:

Plug-in format under OS X
Under OS X, you can in principle use Melodyne in Ableton Live either as a VST 2 (32-bit) or as an AU (32-/64-bit) plug-in. We recommend use of the AU version.


which suggests that you can only run the VST if you are using Live 32-bit.

Re: melodyne won't show in plugins

i think only the AU version works in Live. did you install the right version (32- or 64-bit) for the version of Live you installed?
