So, in conclusion, Live Lite 4 seems like the one to start with. It's only got 4 tracks, but I get to evaluate the overall outcome. Is there a way around the Demo version not saving? [/b] Jim, why don't you just download the Live 5 demo, if you only want to evaluate the application? It isn't such a...

Dunno about hi-tech stuff, but there is one street there that is full of music stores selling some excellent instruments, like oud, saz etc. I saw an electric saz in one place - damn, I should have got it!
Also Istambul is, of course, a prime place for cymbals.

Looks good to me (um, sorry, am NOT an expert :? ) but the HD speed is 4200 rpm in the specs on the link...I would think you need 7200 -definitely for recording, anyway.

Hi Everyone, I have used the same FW410 with an AMD athlon desktop, a generic PC laptop (4 pin fw cable), a Toshiba laptop (pcmcia FW card) and a G4 powerbook with no major problems at all. Am I just lucky, or what? Yes, the mixer app IS a bit wierd at times, tho. Sorry for the guys having problems,...

My 2 cents worth: keep the monitors away from the wall as much as is possible - not an easy thing if you are in a small space - I also have this problem these days. I noticed that in most of the pictures of peoples setups elsewhere on the forum that most of us have monitors way too close to the wall...

Hi Tom, I bet even a stripped down XP will use a fair amount of RAM. I use a Toshiba notebook live with 768mb and Live 4 and a FW410 - and the only time I had a problem with this setup was when the performance settings in XP were set to Programs and not Background Services - then I got the mad CPU o...

Hi All, I finally installed 5.0.2 on my studio PC - which is getting old now - and I have had no problems at all. Very little increase on the CPU usage compared to 4.0.3, and only the occaisional spike. And this is also when I sometimes forget to disable my internet connection/firewall etc! So, I am...

250 is the model number......in this case 80 is for 80 ohm. They make other versions, like 200 ohm, I believe. I have had a pair of these for several years. Yes, they are very comfortable and the sound quality is smooth and has great bass response. I have done some pre-mixing with them and then late...

OK, have a workaround by creating a midi track and arming it - so it accepts the midi footpedal info and transmits it out of Live.

seems like it should have done that anyway with the preferences set up to transmit....but WTF, is working now.

M Audio Firewire 410 midi out

Hi All, Am using a Behringer midi footpedal to control Live 4 (using the midi ports of a M Audio 410) and I would like to be able to send program change messages to a POD as well. So I have connected the Midi Out of the 410 to the POD - and it only seems to work when the 410's THRU button is pushed ...
