My "Pro-tools" kiler app reference refered to the time before Logic or Centrino, at the dawn of decent PC computing. When Atari 1040st ruled every studio ... a real computer, It had a built in midi socket on the side ! Imagine me on stage in front of a couple of thousand ravers while I sweatilly exc...

why do apple dominate in theA/V and graphics industries? firstly - stability. Most studio clients through the 90's, and by that I mean the 'producer' who books all the gear and the engineers in, their only experience of win machines was '95 or '98 ... which redefined poor stability. That kind of set...

D for Disk

as in 'slow'

Solution : set a few loops to be from the RAM and keep only the large and long tracks from the disk, that will lower the disk seeking.

Perhaps it is a ruse to get enough traffic (of angry producers) flowing to their site so that they can provide impressive page hit figures to advertisers! "Hey look, we hadn't even opened for trading and we received over a million hits per week!" Sadly, It's the same old same old - *my first Record ...

Sadly that's not the case when dealing with open ended software emulations. I could understand your point if we were only ever going to play a fixed number of tracks with a fixed number of effects on a fixed resource consuming application. Unfortunately (for my machines cooling) I am a total resourc...

The whole app weighs in at about 2.5 meg Oh and did I mention that it is shareware :) ... is $20 too much to make your o...

Ok, I too would like MP3 support and am glad of the (ableton) insight into the problem. here's my half witted idea... perhaps allowing a 'mode' of audio track which limits the warping functions on any mp3 based audio to be less immediate. Call this mode 'DJ - audio' ;) if you want to do anything rea...

Hi, Jamie Lidell is a friend of friends of mine (although I have sadly never met him), they share studio space with him when he is in Brighton. Anyway, I was talking to them about Live and they said - "Hey, that's the thing that Jamie is always on about !" Although, they could be wrong about him act...
