Re: Live 8 / Live 7 CPU usage comparison

I was fully expecting the typical shower of Ableton Live Protectors to come rushing in to defend the honor of their beloved software here, but I guess I was mistaken. I only just realized that playing with loops for forty minutes, quitting Live, then pulling up your browser to jerk off interchangea...

Re: Live 8 / Live 7 CPU usage comparison

Yes, I imagine bugs have been worked out between 8.1.3 and the latest versions, but I'm willing (though I shouldn't have to) to make that sacrifice if it bumps my CPU overhead down 2.5x. And to answer your question, yes it's exactly the same session - 1 instance of Kontakt, same instrument patch, sa...

Re: Y-cable or mixer?

You might lose some of your output level by splitting with the Y cables... I did the reverse sometime ago, piping an xbox and ps3 through the same receiver input via y-cable and both were very low in volume. I imagine this might be the case in your situation too. Maybe an engineer can educate us on ...

Stiff pads?? Don't fret!

Some things are good stiff. Drum pads aren't one of those things. Useful link below for those of you who want to increase the sensitivity of your pad controllers, specifically the Akai MPD/MPK series but I imagine it may work with other products too. A bit of tape on the bottom of each pad "nipple" ...

Re: Live 8 / Live 7 CPU usage comparison

Yes, with Live 8.2.7 (and the 8.2.8 beta 3) i'm getting occassional pops when running a single instance and CPU goes over 50-60% (100+ voice polyphonies in Kontakt). If you're using Kontakt, especially some of the boutique Tonehammer / Soniccouture libraries, I recommend trying out 8.1.3; your CPU l...

Re: New Remote Script for Novation Nocturn and Live 8

Thanks, guys! Got it sorted. I had some mondo mappings across all 16 MIDI channels on a track in Live I'd forgotten about, which were interfering with the Automap mappings. Removing this channel solved it! Thanks for your replies and the heads up about the new Automap version.

Re: New Remote Script for Novation Nocturn and Live 8

Great looking script! Having some trouble getting it up and running, hoping one of you kind gents might be able to help. I've installed everything correctly - - the Nocturn folder copied to Live's MIDI-Remote-Scripts folder, - Nocturn selected as Control Surface in Live, with Automap in/out - Remote...

Re: Surround Sound Plug-in for Ableton Live

Not sure your idea is possible. Support for 5.1 has been requested hundreds of times and I remember reading something from an ableton rep about the entire program needing a rethink to be able to accomodate 5.1 in any way. Have you been in contact with any ableton developers about this? Yes, Live is...

Surround Sound Plug-in for Ableton Live

Hello everyone, Our team is considering developing a surround sound plug-in for Ableton Live (and other hosts). Hoping I can get some input from other Live users out there. 1. How do you work with surround sound in Ableton Live? Any particular plug-ins / approaches you find work well? 2. What featur...

How about the GUI freeze problem? http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?t=102662&sid=d97ceca17810d303a1b0afee76f0c81a For me, sending program change data (via a knob) to a VSTi or AU instrument will do it too, forcing application restart. Showstopper in a live performance! (MacBook, 10.5.4, Live 7....

Also an issue when sending program change to instruments. Live 7.0.10 on MacBook. Repro: map knob to program change, target an instrument, then give your PC knob a good twist. Display freezes, though audio continues. If you choose to exit the app, the "this will kill audio" dialog comes up and the G...
