Mac book pro crashes

Yesterday, twice, i was working with Ableton while the computer was hooked into my M-Audio firewire audiophile soundcard, and after I left it idle for a while (making lunch), i came back to find a gray window in the middle of the display that asked me (in 5 different languages) to force shut down th...

Messing with OSX folders

I like organizing my vsti in different groups. A folder for synths, a folder for samplers and romplers, a folder for effects…etc. The question is: Is it ok to go into OSX's library/audio/plugins, and mess around with the Audio Unit folders to do the same. I tried moving some stuff before and It didn...

Organization: where to keep homemade racks

Trying to stay organized here; I'm a bit neurotic about this shit…. Where do you keep your homemade instrument racks and effect racks? do you just drag them to the browser and let ableton throw them in the library? or do you have a separate folder in your documents? How does this affect upgrading Li...

past version presets

Hey all, So I installed the latest copy of ableton in a new computer and I'm not seeing some of the old instrument presets that I regularly used in my old computer. Maybe they where discontinued banks that I had been carrying from previous versions where I just merged libraries…? Is there a place wh...

Re: mac wave editor

Well, evetually I'm gonna buy Logic; and I'm not sure but I would guess that Logic has a quality editor…
In the mean time, i would like something pretty close to free. That's why I'm looking into Audacity.
Wavelab sounds sweet though...

mac wave editor

Hey all. Recently moved from pc to mac. So, along with many vst goodbyes, I'm parting ways with my trusty old copy of cool edit. Still haven't tried audacity, but want to hear some feedback about it. You know, the usual duties: Fades, format conversions, zoom in to check for problems…and I also use ...

au lost presets

I'm new to Mac world, and there's a couple of things that are puzzling me. AU. When I install a au version of a plugin (eg. impOscar), i can't find the plugin banks and presets, and even if I do, I'm not sure how to load them...the little open folder icon is missing... VSTs I have a lovely collectio...

Re: Playing out using live in windows on a macbook pro?

Classic. I've seen this question asked many times, and always people have to rag about why run windows on mac, or they tell you to get mac equivalent effects, or to get a pcetc. Well, some of us have been working on music for a long time, and for some reason decided to switch (or to try) the alterna...
