Re: 96Khz. Why?

That's mostly what I was referring to when I said "modern DSP is so damn good". Usually when there might be an issue that affects audio quality, oversampling is employed anyway. andy//cytomic said once that most of the cheaper oversampling filters aren't linear phase... meaning they introduce a fre...

Re: SSD: Will it help give my laptop some life support?

the C2D is pretty old - you might get a lot of value out of upgrading, even if it's only to a newer used machine; i'd go for at least a 2nd gen Core machine if you can. this page is pretty helpful for showing the differences: http://www.anandtech.com/show/7003/the-haswell-review-intel-core-i74770k-i...

Re: Verb, Delay, etc – what else can Return channels be used 4?

this won't apply to most people, but they can also be used for submixes e.g. monitor sends for live musicians.

Re: VST latencies

if it's a VST, if you have the recent beta, you can hover over the VST and see if it reports any latency....

you should be able to have more than one controller hooked up without issue, so them tripping over each other shouldn't be a problem.

Re: LIVE 9.2b1 Discuss....

yes, I understand how everything works. Again, never been affected by the way Live's Compensation worked pre Live 9.2. The post by Grill made it seem like timing is way off for more things than automation. Just making sure he understood what has actually changed as lots of people don't really under...

Re: LIVE 9.2b1 Discuss....

I'm one of the people who never had any issues w pre 9.2 automation compensation. So all of my projects sound pretty much exactly the same in 9.2. Your talking about automation timing relative to audio right? Nothing else was changed as far as plugin compensation. So, I don't understand why anythin...

Re: LIVE 9.2b1 Discuss....

I'm suprised no one mentioned that the timing of old projects (particularelly heavy ones) is now complettely off in 9.2 some tracks sound audibly and clearly overcompensated when played back in 9.2 versus 9.1, giving a very non musical rush feel that spans un-evenely over individual tracks this is ...

Re: LIVE 9.2b1 Discuss....

remember that when saving/loading, live gathers the current settings for every vst (as a binary blob, iirc) and adds it to the project save XML. i don't know how long this takes per plug, but clearly if you have more plugs, this will take longer. it may be possible for ableton to optimize here, but ...

yes, it looks like this is eliminated - no more delays for M4L effects!

Re: Live 9 Drum rack cuts frequencies really? Possible Bug

i would also try turning off the filter... in mine, it defaults to on, but at 22KHz, which is not necessarily off, since the filter cutoff is often the 3db point. 10 KHz is only an octave below there or so, so you might see dropoff from 11-22khz. But you can just turn it off completely, which should...
