Re: I just can't decide whether to get Live/Omnisphere or Suite!

A couple things come to mind. I have suite and find the sounds pretty inspiring for what I do. Your mileage may vary. I never use any of the suite instruments anymore, but from what I remember the abe instruments have very few (if any) effects on them, so adding some effects can open them up some. A...

Using Session View to run multi-channel clips on stage

Hi, I spend all my time in Live's arrangement view producing multi-track backing tracks that I use on stage. They are usually comprised of about 10 tracks that get mixed down to three busses (one is click, one is instruments, and the other is guitars; guitars get processed differently for FOH). Thes...

Re: Orchestral Instrument Collection vs East West Symphonic Orch

EWQL recently offered a free version of SO. It was essentially a reduced version of their silver package. If you can still get it, it will give you a good sample of the EWQL flavor of doing things. It also doesn't require iLok, which is nice.

Re: What PRO isn't using a Mac on stage?

Feel free to argue semantics. Kraftwerk still sucks. Though, I will agree that they have had a lot of influence -- on the crap that sucks today. Well, if we're going to talk about Amazing 80s Krautrock, I don't even know why we're discussing Kraftwerk. The Scorpions stepped all over Kraftwerk back i...

Re: What PRO isn't using a Mac on stage?

Well, if we're going to talk about Amazing 80s Krautrock, I don't even know why we're discussing Kraftwerk. The Scorpions stepped all over Kraftwerk back in the day. Still do. I came here looking for a Mac vs. PC flame war. Why is everyone arguing about some German 80s band? What do you mean some Ge...

Re: Artificial Double Tracking free plugin

I just saw this thread yesterday and for fun used it on a couple vocal tracks last night. It sounds great! Really really nice stereo effect and very subtle change to the vocal. I will definitely be using this in the future.

Mirroring Mac Pro on MacBook

I have a Mac Pro on which I use Live. The Pro has three different hard drives: my boot drive, another drive called "Projects" and another called "Sample Libraries." I build Live projects on the "Projects" drive. These projects load VSTs and samples from the "Sample Libraries" drive. I then take thos...

Re: Need Advice on Libraries Storage for best performance

I use Ministry of Rock from an external 500gb USB drive and it works fine. Put the Play app on your internal drive and the libraries on your external.

Re: Meters in Ableton: Useless?

Can anybody tell me what Hd is talking about? I am not sure what plug to use under Utility. Maybe I have a different version of Live (7014) than he does.

Re: Meters in Ableton: Useless?

Hd,

Thanks for the words. The utility plug is such a good idea for automating volume. Which one do you use?

Re: Meters in Ableton: Useless?

Sorry, I meant to say arrangement view. I don't use session view too much. The only area I can drag to make wider is the track drop area with the title bar.

Edited to say that I certainly am useless at most things, heavensdaw!
