manually opening a project's saved undo history?

hey everyone, I've got two queries: how can I manually open a recently-crashed project based upon the saved undo history? and how can I avoid hitting the 4GB ram limit imposed by 32-bit apps? more details: i'm working on an edit of a track at the moment. as I'm working with a wav-file of a stereo bo...

help syncing external synths on new system (used to work)

hi all, my problem is this: If I sync my external synths to Ableton's midi clock, I lose all ability to send them midi notes. so I've recently moved across from a desktop Mac Pro to a Macbook Pro. And I'm now having a problem getting external synthesizers (Novation A-Station & Elektron Monomachine) ...

simple q: how to turn off looped preview for short files?

hi all, so i've recently moved systems to a new laptop. How can I turn-off looped previewing for short files? I've got loads of short (less than a second) AIFFs that I'm using as percussion sources. At the moment, Live is previewing them in a looped manner, which results in a kind of machine gun-esq...

bouncing track with ext ints, but turning ext inst off?

hi all : ) so my full question is: is it possible to do an offline-bounce of a project that contains external instruments, without manually turning off the external instrument devices? i'm using the elektron monomachine (6 voices) and a Novation A-station. I often record their parts back into ableto...

Re: Live gigs: worth having a second drive (SSD) for audio?

went with OWC's 120gb one. The higher-spec one. Zooming. curious to see how it goes with recording... see if it's possible to record to the SSD at the same time as playing live (from a Live lib that is also on the SSD). or perhaps it'll perform better reading/recording the project on the HDD??? will...

Re: is it possible to warp a song from major key to minor?

Haha yeah cheers dudes & dude-ettes. That got totally out of hand. Let's all get back to writing music and designing sounds. A little less conversation?


It was all theory anyway. I dont have an actual piece I want to modulate keys with.



Cheers : )

is it possible to warp a song from major key to minor?

hi all, is it possible to warp a song from major key to minor or vice versa? I'm sure Melodyne DNA could do this (to some degree) with individual audio stems. but is there a program around (Ableton or other) that could apply a global change to a master-bus bounce (aiff or wav) of a track? (so global...

Re: ableton live and monomachine: can anyone get in PERFECT sync

anyone got any updates?

Abe's just put out an update of Live 8 (boasting improved sync with hardware - can't remember which way, slave or master - think it was slave).


So any had any more luck?



Think I'm pretty close. will do some proper tests some day soon : )

Re: Live gigs: worth having a second drive (SSD) for audio?

I have two HD's in my MBP too (one SSD, one regular 7200RPM drive), but I use them differently. I have my OS and all apps installed on my SSD and read/write all audio to the regular drive. I guess if you can get a big enough SSD, it would be great, but I record my audio at 96kHz (sometimes 192kHz) ...

Re: Live gigs: worth having a second drive (SSD) for audio?

hey guys, so it's been a while between posts. In between time, the quad-core Mac Mini has come out (as the server model). This can accommodate a second HD out-of-the-box (there's no CD drive). And it doesn't look too hard to get into, to install it yourself. So I've been tossing up between a Mac Min...
