Opinions on an Asus laptop...

I'm thinking of picking up an Asus A8Js laptop... Anyone have experience using Live with Asus laptops ? They usually make quality and this one is packed with power and I like that it's 14 inches and pretty light.. I debated getting a Macbook Pro but 15 inch screen is a bit big and there are just too...

Same here, when I load grand piano the Live process's RAM usage goes up until about 300MB and CPU usage gets up to over 80% even though the Live GUI CPU meter doesn't reflect this. Over the next several minutes the CPU meter goes up and down between about 50% - 80% and mem usage jumps around between...

Yeah the sounds are really nice and it's basically only $70-$90 since the boxed version was usually $30 anyway when they didn't have EIC..... Compare that to any other orchestral library and they don't even come close for this quality at this price point Performance is an issue but luckily I haven't...

bump

anyone get EIC yet? Can we toggle loading samples into RAM if using in Simpler? I'm worried that loading them off hard disk could be bad for performance

EIC in Simpler: will there be an option for RAM mode

Hi I'm curious with the Essential Instrument Collection when running it with Simpler will we be able to toggle between reading the multi sampled patches from disk or loading them into RAM? With Sampler there is a RAM switch but I don't believe there is one with Simpler (?).

cheers

Will the Essential Instrument Collection sound like this?

http://www.sonivoxmi.com/ProductList.as ... Instrument

Link to many samples of the Sonivox instruments. Some of them are really nice! I wonder if some of these will be what is in Live 6 or is Sonivox creating brand new ones for Ableton?

I just found out it doesn't do this - I expected it as standard in 5.2 - what host doesn't record automation these days? It certainly should be in 6 - why on earth is it left out at all? Implementing recording automation in session view is a LOT harder than some people think. People claim other hos...

I think I"m getting close... :) But when you think about it, it's definitely a LOT harder than some people might realize to implement session view CC Recording...

Session clips with 2 envelopes: 1 relative, 1 absolute

I know this has been discussed enough, but here's my 2 cents to continue beating a (hopefully) undead horse. :wink: The easiest way to allow CC recording in session clips is by simply adding a new "absolute" envelope type to clips. This would NOT mean getting rid of the relative clip envelopes, they...

cool, maybe I should grab a Trigger finger... looks like automap will be supported for it as well in L6

Hopefully the Abletons will implement a way to map velocity to midi mappable controls (I guess maybe in v7?).... It'd make any instrument rack so much more expressive!
