Re: Maschine MK2 + Ableton

Are you using a Mac? If so, I think this is a common bug which is a big reason why I sold mine a while back. I've since heard that the problem should be resolved if you are running the most up to date Ableton template on Maschine, together with the most recent drivers etc. Hope this is of some help,...

Re: Is there a way to delete Suite 8 Library?

Thanks everyone - that's really helpful. Deleting the Suite 8 library shouldn't make any difference as a) I've collected all and saved my finished tracks and b) I've been ruthless with my unfinished Suite 8 tracks and culled the lot of them as on reflection I realised they were all shite. In contras...

Re: Is there a way to delete Suite 8 Library?

back it up! also be aware that your old livesets might use samples from the live8 library, so they will have broken sample references when you open them after deleting the live8 library. that can be painful! Thanks for the tip - I will definitely do this. Where abouts on the Mac would the Suite 8 l...

Re: Is there a way to delete Suite 8 Library?

Well, I've tried the peanut butter and freezing techniques, but Suite 8 is still there. Any other ideas?

Is there a way to delete Suite 8 Library?

Hi everyone,

After the gargantuan task of installing the lovely new Suite 9 library, I'd like to reclaim some badly needed disk space by deleting the Suite 8 library content. Is there a way of doing this without affecting the Suite 9 library? I'm on a Mac, Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

Thanks.

Re: Live 9 - 25% March 4th discount vs 40% student discount

Fair do - I'd still double check direct with Ableton. If you ever need to prove your eligibility in the future you have it in writing that you are allowed to transfer.

Re: Live 9 - 25% March 4th discount vs 40% student discount

I'm not entirely sure how the student license works. If I were you I'd email Ableton customer support with your questions so that you have it in writing direct from them. Hearsay on the Ableton forum might not be the most realisable source for licensing questions. On a general note, however, if you ...

Re: Suite 8 -> Live 9? Who is going down this route?

I'm going the Suite upgrade while the offer is on. The way I see it, for £30 extra I get a ton of extra loops, sounds and clips, then have a spare M4L license that I can sell on afterwards to cover the extra cost (and probably a little more). Why not? You crafty thing, you! I never thought of that ...

Give Cthulhu a go from Xfer Records - it's cheap and an absolute blast. Really inspiring to help you get a track off the ground.

Re: March the 5th!!!!!!!!!!

To clear up the confusion - if you upgrade from Suite 8 to Live 9 Standard, you'll still get to keep everything that you had with Suite 8. You just won't get any of the new stuff in Live 9 Suite (Max for Live + 25 new devices, The Forge, Session Drums Club/Multimic/Studio, Digicussion 2, Orchestral...

Re: TouchAble app users, we need your opinion and thought

Well, although I love TouchAble, I've posted some questions about problems I'm having on the TouchAble forum, have emailed support and even posted here without any answers. As such, I thought I might highjack this thread with them... 1. The EQ8 template running in Ableton 9 Beta does not behave as I...
