I think you're thinking about it too hard. There's no automation, no fading in and out. Just listen: By "song" I do not mean a Live document, session or arrangement. Remember, we are talking about one solitary Live Session. If you have a gig in two days, you would call this session "Feb 27 Gig." And...

I use a measly PIII 500mhz with 256 ram and have never had a crash. I use the M-Audio Quattro. I use the mouse to trigger individual clips that haven't been assigned Midi notes, but for the most part I use the handy Edirol PCR-30 to control everything. All clips for the whole show in one session, wi...

Claudek: Muser is explaining it to you correctly. There is no reason to open and close the session! The horizontal lines in your session are called scenes. You will see this when you press Ctrl+I (I think) to add a new horizontal row for clips. Well, my session for a big show will over 300 horizonta...

Folks: Pitch Black: Don't worry about "loading it to the gills." I'm no tech, but that doesn't affect LIVE, at least not with a G4. I have tremenously large (12-14 songs) sessions, and I use a PIII 500 mhz with 256 ram. There is no (I believe) correlation to session size and performance. As far as e...

Thanks...I'll give that a try. For the record, I'm using a miniscule PIII 500 mhz with 256 ram. It only skips ocassionally, however. But I'll upgrade the laptop before I switch to Firewire, just to be sure.

Here's what you do:

Here's the new way to think about using Live for your shows; I've played about a dozen so far with this program and I've learned a bunch. In a nutshell: Put ALL your clips into ONE session. Here's how I do it, how you do it is up to you: Let's say song one (or more exactly, the CLIPS that make up yo...

The Bottom Line on Stuttering

Alright folks, we're gonna figure this out once and for all. Ableton has said that they've had complaints about stuttering and audio dropouts. They've pointed to a possible problem with USB breakout boxes, like the M-Audio Quattro (which I use). We've gone round and round talking about CPU power, RA...

PCR-30

For what's it worth, I used the PCR-30 yesterday for a show and it rocked. I've had no problems at all with it. It's deceptively deep, however, and I wonder if their may be some operator error here. :wink:

Oregon...

You say you are in Oregon; so am I. I live in Portland, and both Portland Music and Apple Music have the Edirols in stock right now. There will not be any problem with 10.1 or any other software.

Responses...

Okay, I will respond to each of these: Neuronaut: It's not a problem to assign the faders or knobs at all in 1.5.2 or 2.0.1. But no, LIVE will not let you "tell" it which channel a certain controller is on. It will simply detect it. So, I have the Edirol sending a variety of CC's on MIDI chan. 1. Fo...

Encoders

Gotcha. If I understand correctly, then yes, the Edirol uses endless encoders...wherever the knob moves, so does the knob in LIVE. As far as the Reason-able keyboard, when do they make one for LIVE? BTW, has anyone else problems using the mouse to drag knobs and values using the 2.0.1 beta version? ...

Novation comparison

Re: the Novation: Absolutely...I was a little bummed to have heard about it AFTER I bought the Edirol. One thing is for sure, they both leave Midiman in the dirt. However, there is no timeline for the Novation, and the Edirol is available now. They both very similar, the only difference being the No...

PCR-30

This box looks great, but it's missing the key element of a keyboard. There is no way to assign midi notes to scenes and trigger them from this box.

Check out my post about the Edirol PCR-30 I just wrote...knobs, faders, buttons...and a keyboard.

It rocks!

Yes...I just performed with the Edirol PCR-30 two days ago. It completely blows away anything from Midiman. You get 8 rotary knobs, 8 assignable buttons, and the real plum: 8 assignable faders. So.... I assigned the faders (obviously) to my 8 channels of audio tracks. Knobs 5-8 were attached to EFX ...
