Re: Database crash + re-scan -- I am alone in this ??

Have you tried a completely fresh install of Live and all your packs? When you transferred to your newest computer, did you restore from a Time Machine back up or similar? Just wondering if you somehow had a corrupted library ages ago and keep propogating it to new set ups. Well, Live and all my pa...

Database crash + re-scan -- I am alone in this ??

I just sent off an e-mail to support to try to get my old ticket on this re-opened (it was never solved to begin with). NOTE: Basically I'm posting again here simply because I want to know if somehow, bizarrely, I'm the only one experiencing this issue with such incredible persistence. Support has a...

Re: WHOLLY MISSING LIBRARY BATMAN!! just like that!

The database crashed, quit and re-open and Live will (slowly) re-scan all of your stuff. If you go look in the relevant folders, you'll see that none of your stuff is actually "gone", it's all on your HD as before -- it's just that Live's database crashed, so none of it shows up in Live until the re...

Re: The "Sample is Offline" DAW

How do you save sampler instruments? Are they always associated with the project fie? Is there something similar with Maschines "save group with samples" option? Answer: You drag the instrument devices into the User Library, into a folder of your making/choosing. This will save the instrument + its...

Re: Native Instruments just ripped off Push big-time, ha!

Sigh. Seems like a tremendous amount of overlap if you are a Live user and development time being taken away from better Maschine integration in DAWs. But better integration doesn’t make money, new hardware does. Maschine's longtime core users want serious updates and expansions to the functionalit...

Re: The "Sample is Offline" DAW

I've had my share of problems with Ableton, but in my 8 years of heavy usage, I've NEVER had it just go and lose a file mysteriously. Ableton is actually very, very smart about its approach to file maintenance. It does NOT just randomly move your files around or delete them. Since all sessions refer...

Re: Native Instruments just ripped off Push big-time, ha!

I'm guessing people who say NI should make their own DAW haven't spent any time with the Maschine software 8O I mean, in some ways Maschine is fast and fun; I do like the software version 2 (I -hated- the software version 1). but it's also so weirdly dated in so many ways, very non-intuitive / diffi...

Re: Can Ableton do this? - Chop sample, fade out

Hey, I saw this against the clock with Rival Console yesterday, and saw a very creative way to get texture into songs. Basically he imports a field-recording or something similar, chops it up, selects all the different chops, and selects "Fade out" in Cubase. All the different parts of the chopped ...

Re: Vocoder: is it possible to use a plugin as a carrier?

Yes, of course it is possible.

And setting it up is no different than using an ableton synth. Just select the channel it's on in the Vocoder's "ext" input drop down.

If you need specific help as to why your third party instrument isn't "working" with vocoder, you'll have to be more specific.

Re: Live 9.7-another update for Simpler,but what about Sampler?

I definitely feel Angstrom's pain on this. All the changes / new functionality are done solely with Push in mind. Looking at the Release notes just prove the point painfully. All the work on the software is just about Push compatibility and development. I don't own push, I don't want push, I couldn'...

Re: Label wants me to pay for mastering, etc.

Seems like a crap deal to me.... if they aren't paying for mastering nor promotion, what the hell are they actually doing for you?

I'd steer clear, personally.

Re: Stoping a clip from launching ??

I agree with the notion that your attempt to 'simplify' is actually making things more complex and problematic than they need to be (especially considering that in order to achieve it you need new functionality entirely). Here's my question: You have a scene, call it your 'primary main basic scene' ...
