Re: USB/Firewire Audio Interface VS Motherboard Audio Question.

I tested this recently as I was pondering the purchase of a DAC to use on the built-in digital audio out of my 2.8Ghz C2D iMac rather than a USB or Firewire interface. I use all virtual instruments and samples like you, with a ReMote SL and this is what I found with a typical set - 57% CPU - Onboard...

Re: Compressors

Yep, I find Live's compressor decent on kick and snare, then I compress the bus with The Rocket or Sonalksis 315. Apparently 'The Glue' by Cytomic is very good too. I'm thinking of getting a Duende mini though.. but I wanna see how V3 pans out first. I figure that if i'm gonna have to get a dongle, ...

Re: My workstation is now complete :)

Nice ! As soon as I get my APC we will be pretty similar, same mouse and everything 8O

I use one of these to raise / angle my controller, its pretty cool as it allows you to swivel the controller -

Can I do better than Audio Kontrol 1 in that price bracket ?

I currently have an M-Audio Firewire Solo and contrary to most folks experiences with M-Audio gear, never had an issue with it. I do need to upgrade though, to an interface that offers.. Independent control of Monitor and Headphone volume Ability to cue properly for DJ work Improved D/A audio qualit...

CPU Usage - Internal Audio vs Firewire Interface on Mac

I have no idea where I got this idea from, but I always assumed that the CPU utilisation on the internal audio in a Mac would be better, or at least the same as when using a Firewire interface.. not so, on mine at least. Results of Live 8 Performance Test on iMac Core2Duo 2.8 Ghz at 512 latency: 45%...

Re: basic Q about VST vs. AU

Almost - Logic can only (natively) use AU, but Live can use VST *and* AU, so you would only need to install the AU versions to have the plugins accessible in both hosts.. another consideration though - if you want seamless compatibility when sharing sets from your Mac with Live running on your Windo...

Well he didn't really, because that's not how Apple's business model works, and why the OS X license agreement is how it is.. but I hear ya.

BIOS (PC) vs EFI (Mac) is the main issue as far as I'm aware, plus some other less significant bits and bobs.

Re: Ladies & Gentlemen, my Hackintosh is complete!

Not judging, but.. isn't it funny that the reaction is different to this than someone saying 'i use a cracked version of Live'.. when surely breaking a license agreement is breaking a license agreement ?

Re: Where is my upgrade option?

I upgraded from Live 7 to Live 7 Suite in February, had the same problem as you guys, i.e. no upgrade option against my account today after the relase of Live 8. Email them - I got my free upgrade/new serials through in around an hour after doing so. Sweet :D
