Re: choosing studio monitors

All right, I ended up buying Yam HS50m. Heard it was good for mixing (but harsh !), and relativly cheap

Re: Live on Letterman

she was using looper on the voice, she record herself at the begining and so on... Honestly I was really impressed, that's an example of the kind of performance we might see in the next couple of year. A mix between "real instrument" and electronic stuff. And she was playing with this idea, having a...

Re: it's official, next year I don't upgrade till it's stable

Just out of curiosity. People having issues with GFX and CPU usage, you aren't using "integrated graphics" by any chance? Like Intel GMA950 for example. I'm running such a system and I find its faster in most cases. But my old G5 outperforms it on the graphic side. Live looking slower on these syst...

Re: max/msp

I've done some max/msp units @ the uni, and it's an amazing tool. You can do anything. But such power require lots of skills and time to know how to use it. While learning how to use it, you could simply make music. It's up to you how to use your time. I still think that Max/MSP is not for everyone ...

Re: Chopping up audio samples

Or in session view, set the loop makers then right click and choose 'crop sample'
Or again in session view, set the volume envelope and reduce it to '0' for the part you dont wana hear.

Live 8, large window = everything slow

Hi, I'm on a white macbook, core2duo 2.4hz with the intel graphic ship. When I use live 8 on the macbook, fullscreen, everything's fine. But when I use it on my external screen, 22' and I try to enlarge the window, everything slow down. The more I make it bigger, the slower it is. If I make it full ...

Re: Who uses the hot swap button?

I use the hot-swap button eveytime, just click on it and the browser opens at the right place and you just have to use the keybord. Faster than draging with the mouse.

Re: What's the difference between Future Music & Computer Music?

CM is more entry level magazine.
FM is more for rich producer.
I Like them both but after one year checking what they talk about they start to keep repeating the same stuff

Re: you all still can't name one professional....

Im well aware this post is for the lols, but... There are industry giants and top 40 producers using Live everyday and letting other software and hardware take the credit. It's spawned from the stigma of Live not being a "serious" program and endorsement deals. From where did Live get this reputati...

Re: Sampler or Battery?

I like the combination of drum rack/simpler/sampler, auto slice audio to midi. I've used battery, it was great if I was using a more classical DAW.

Re: Trouble Finishing Songs? - Live's Song-Building Process

My piece of advice : Don't be too ambitious. Don't be a control freak, let the fun have his part in the process of creation. Try to use the keyboard/mouse as less as possible. Be quick, don't focus too much on details that you will be the only one to notice. Don't be too picky in the values of fader...
