Re: New skin for Live 8 - DarkLight

How do drum racks look in it? If the rack cells are nice and visible, it's a win. I like the darker skins. :) Drum racks look ok, apart from the instrument name in the piano roll column doesn't show due to being black text on a black background but the instrument name is on each note so it's not a ...

New skin for Live 8 - DarkLight

If you're looking for a cool dark skin for Live 8 then you may like this one I made. Just download it and put it into your skin folder and then select it from the preferences menu.

Multiband dynamics question...

When using multiband dynamics on a track (master channel) I get it to how I want the track to sound but I always seem to end up with the kick drum sounding overly 'boomy'. Does anyone know how to stop the kick drum from being compressed, while everything else is compressed?

Crash after exporting a region

I've updated to the latest version (8.1.5) on Win 7 64bit, 4gb RAM and I still get the system crashing after exporting a region (16 bars, 16bit WAV) this has only just started happening and I don't know why. The project is quite small and uses just over 1gb RAM according to task manager so I don't t...

Re: Live 8 still runs even when ending task on Win Vista/7

Thanks, I now realise that it's a problem with windows rather than Live. I'll see if I can find anything online that may work.

Re: Live 8 still runs even when ending task on Win Vista/7

i don't see why you should need a wdm driver running, if you are apparently using an asio capable sound card ? Yes I'm using asio, I think the windows media driver is a part of windows system files and is used for direct x and other things, I doubt that it can be uninstalled. But I don't know why L...

Re: Live 8 still runs even when ending task on Win Vista/7

No luck. I tried removing all devices including midi and usb. Looking at process explorer the culprit seems to be wdmaud.drv which is the only active Live thread using cpu cycles. Googling this file says that it's a windows audio driver... :(

Live 8 still runs even when ending task on Win Vista/7

I've had this problem on Vista and also on Win7 but never on XP. When Live 8 crashes (all versions including the latest) the program is still shown to be running (in Task Manager) and uses the same amount of memory than before the crash. If I open a new instance of Live then audio is disabled as onl...

Re: Do you mix to a compressor?

I stick a compressor on the master channel to tighten and gel things together (producing Trance), I'm using the excellent Bombardier ( http://www.stillwellaudio.com/?page_id=342 ) :)

Re: What does out of memory or not enough memory mean?

Since switching to 8.1.3 I have no longer had this problem, before I couldn't even work on the problem set. The way I fixed it was to first delete a synth channel to free up enough memory and then resave the set using 8.1.3. Load the set back in and then you should be able to re-import the deleted c...

Automation on group track doesn't work

I'm using 8.1.3 and I am trying to automate an auto filter on a group track, but for some reason it has no effect. I can't figure it out, all 3 grouped channels are set to route to the group and the group's audio is set to route to the master. I have another group in the set which has automation on ...

Re: What does out of memory or not enough memory mean?

It does appear that this problem is fixed in 8.1.3. I've managed to push my problem set further by adding more synths without the error messages appearing.
