Re: LIVE 9 : PDC IMPROVED OR NOT ?

2. Live has odd behavior that adds up buffer delay every time you insert vst. No other host does this. umm... it *better* add up buffer delay every time you insert a VST... otherwise, the *audio* will be out of sync, not just the automation. however, from what i have heard, some other hosts don't a...

Re: LIVE 9 : PDC IMPROVED OR NOT ?

Also all time based fx in generel, 3rd party or native are not very well compensated if I remember corectly. this is the other issue... time based fx that have reference to the bar will be out of sync... i.e. if it's just using the BPM to set the delay time - fine. if you're trying to do trancegate...

Re: What 3rd Party Reverb do you use in Live?

i recently did another shootout of the reverbs i have here. csr isn't bad but it is showing its age, and wasn't quite as smooth as some of the others. if you really want that subtle sound, i'd take a look at eareverb, perhaps the cheaper SE version which is around $48/39E... i already have a lot of ...

Re: Live 9 will not allow me to drag mp3 to audio track

Unfortunately, anyone running jbridge has to run Live as administrator :( One workaround I have found is to use explorer++ in administrator mode. ( https://explorerplusplus.com/ ) Of course, since explorer++ is not native to windows, many times I end up in regular explorer instead. Or maybe want to...

Re: Live 4 Lite is it worth anything?

on kvr have seen a few live 8/9 lite (which your live 4 lite is upgradable to for free) go for $5-10, and they usually sit for a while. i wouldn't bother.

Re: Pentium M beats i5

if it gets hot, the i5 will throttle its clock to attempt to cool down (pentium-M does this too). there are some third party tools you can use to see what CPU it's actually running at, something like CPU-Z. my old dell when it started dying would throttle down to 600MHz. that would certainly explain...

Re: Multi-channel spectrum analyzer.

the melda one is pretty good. sometimes you can get it on sale at half-price (that's when i got it). you just missed the last sale though; ended yesterday, so it might be a while before it goes back on sale.

Re:

Which expensive reverbs are mono input only? I had a quick look around there and couldn't spot any obvious ones from Lexicon and the likes. I know some let you choose mono patches, but that's not the same as one physical input. the PCM70 apparently has this topology. note: like robert henke said, m...

Re: sampler experts - vector synthesis/ possible in ableton?

so, there's vector synthesis, and wavescanning. vector synthesis is, as they said, just crossfading and not _that_ hard. wavescanning, it's not really possible. but if you look at e.g. the puremagnetik 'waveframe' instrument, they tried to get around this by using an arp set to a really high rate to...

Re: Made the jump to 64-bit.. Aaand nothing changed.

I see much better stability with larger projects. The tradeoff is that I can't drag and drop files into live due to running 'as Administrator' in order to accommodate jBridge. I think it's a worthwhile tradeoff. sure you can... you just have to _also_ run the explorer window as administrator. i use...
