Re: Live 10.03 lagging like hell - SOLVED!!

10.0.3 was terrible for me - CPU spikes and glitches. The 10.0.4 beta is fine.
Nothing is more scary than "old hardware causing problems". My 2012 Thinkpad still rocks with Win7 and a FF400. I don't want to be forced into a hardware upgrade, puhleez.

Re: Video in Ableton Live

Video has always been very limited in Live but at least in Live9 32 bit the playback was OK (Windows I mean), Live 10 (ie 64 bit) is sluggish as, er, a slug.

Re: How to downgrade to 10.0.2 -> 10.0.1?

Re: Any tips for some GOOD studio headphones?

Been using Beyer Dynamic DT250s (80 ohms) for almost 20 years and I still love them. Although I did try the sonarworks trial of their headphone plugin recently and saw the freq response they are supposed to be giving me. Am so used to them now though I can use them for detailing instruments and chec...

Re: Is 2,3 GHz underpowered these days?

Just to pipe in - am on a 2012 2.4 quad core i7 lenovo laptop with an SSD and running Win7 and this thing is still smoking. I stopped doing Windows updates ages ago, so much so that it's too much work to decide what to install and I would put it on auto cos it would probably kill the machine. No sup...

Re: Novation Launch Control

Thanks - tried the FB page, which seems pretty useless. Solved it somehow today, suddenly was working for CCs. Maybe was a glitch in the USB hub I was using? Powered hub but the power was off at the time.
Anyway. All cool now.

Novation Launch Control

Asking here because Novation no longer has a forum for support, and can't find anything elsewhere. Any idea why the pads on a Novation Launch Control won't send momentary messages to Live? I have tried notes and CCs and selecting Momentary in the Launch Control editor. Whatever I do, the pads only t...

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

After reading this thread, I decided to open up my default set for a quick CPU check, (no clips, lots of VST instruments and effects, 30 tracks, 9 aux returns). All normal for me, if anything could be better than Live 9.

WIN7 i7 Thinkpad 520, 8gb RAM, 256gb SSD, geforce video card, RME Fireface

Re: How to raise volume on a portion of the track

Automation lanes can be tiresome. Depending on the track, here's a quick workaround I use often: use CNTRL E to split the part of a track/clip (arrange view) you want to change the volume - click on that section and then raise or lower the clip volume slider, which will only alter the volume for tha...

Re: Ambisonic/Multi-channel/Surround Sound Support

I mean SURROUND PANNING which is different to using aux channels as a workaround.
Been requesting this for years but the word is that for tech reasons it is hard to implement in Live.

Auto update.

I like the freeze button in Live's reverb.
