Re: Exchanging Live Sets between two computer - presets lost

just verifying... you are definitely both using VST, right? not AU on the mac and VST on windows? that definitely won't work (in my limited experience - i just moved from windows to mac, and most of my racks wouldn't load because i had only installed AUs on the mac... i haven't bothered resolving it...

Re: Amplitude 4 not showing up under plug-ins

you probably already checked this, but did you install the vst2 version of amplitube, or only the vst3 version? reaper can read vst3, live can't.
probably not the issue, but maybe worth checking just to make sure.

Re: YAMAHA DTX Multi 12 with Ableton

do you have suite? if so, give it a try with some of the session drums... i don't know if you'll like them more than the multi, but given that the multi12 only has 100 MB onboard, and the hi-hat alone is more than that in Session Drums (the average per kit is ~1GB), you may find them usable. if not....

Re: Wacom Tablet for Mouse Replacement

agree on the zoom... I used an old HP 2760p for a while... great pen (and it's an i7! 2nd gen but still...), but you have to either zoom it in a lot or be _very_ precise. my motivations were different - the laptop form factor is sometimes inconvenient (small spaces like an airplane seat, or laying i...

Re: Multi FX VST/AU ?

patchwork is probably a better option. the other one I've seen is nyrv agent: http://my.nyrvsystems.com/store/product/1 this one also lets you create custom interfaces for your custom rack, so it's really the closest version to a cross-platform rack I can think of. both are about $99, but there is a...

Re: Touchable forum - gone girl

hmm, i hope they manage to stay around... i haven't gotten to use it as much as I'd like, but i like touchable so far. i do have yeco (got it for the windows machine, before i switched), and may have a way to use it on the mac now... check out astropad.com, it's basically a way to send your screen t...

Re: UNABLE TO OPEN 9.6 projects in 9.7 - crashes immed

are these recent projects from a recent upgrade? if so, ignore me, but if they aren't, and you deleted a plugin that the loaded set is using, that can cause the problem. even if it's something like e.g. you upgraded Reaktor 5 to Reaktor 6, and then removed Reaktor 5. if an old set uses Reaktor 5 whi...

Re: Superior Drummer 2 vs built in drum racks (session drums)

session drums is pretty good, imho. though a few weird things in the rack programming, it's generally pretty useful out of the box. things like superior drummer, bfd, etc. are generally better at the finer points of realism though - cymbal back-to-back hits (and cymbals in general, they are really h...

Re: Touchable question- Can you use touchable without wires?

you could just bring your own wifi router. there are some relatively small ones (quick google search found this: http://nerdtechy.com/best-portable-mini-travel-wifi-router-2016, some of those are about the size of a phone). which brings me to: your phone can probably create a personal hotspot. i hav...

Re: Dear god tell me this is possible

if you actually want to force pitches, you need to detect pitch, and then shift it... so autotune. zynaptiq pitchmap is actually the closest i've seen to what you want, but afaik it doesn't process transients, so maybe not that effective for drums (but worth a try if you have it... it was recently o...

Re: Wow! 16 GB not enough RAM?

Yes, The odd thing was that even though the Performance was somewhere around 147% , I did not notice any degradation in Audio quality! Which I thought was odd. First of all, I didn't know that it was even possible to go over 100%! and second of all, I would have thought when it gets that high you w...

Re: Python framework updated to 2.7 - any new features ?

2.7 isn't a dramatic difference from 2.6.
few new standard features (dict/set comprehensions are the one I appreciated when going to python 2.7) but not really that much.
most people won't really notice the difference.

Re: 96Khz. Why?

it's like taking a picture with a higher resolution... pixels are smaller and thus you can zoom in deeper while keeping lots of detail. This is actually plain false and a lot of the confusion about this topic stems from exactly this misleading analogy. 96kHz does NOT lead to a finer resolution of a...
