Re: What gives? H/W MIDI Latency in Large Ableton project

Much thanks UO. I'm on A9 Suite. But before I look into your suggestions, I don't understand why A9 is different from another DAW in regard to external midi. I don't know the internals of Live, but I can confirm that it is indeed different from other DAWs. I have used both Live 8/9 Suite, and Cubas...

Re: What gives? H/W MIDI Latency in Large Ableton project

How are you hitting 80% CPU in a project that's only triggering external synths? Do you have a lot of heavy effects on your audio tracks? In my own experience, 80% on the Live ASIO meter is past the point of no return; I cannot expect reliable behavior once it gets that high. Freezing VSTi tracks is...

Re: Live 8.4 64 bit vs Live 9 64 bit

I've compared 32-bit Live 8 to 32-bit Live 9, and 32-bit Live 9 to 64-bit Live 9 (but not 64-bit 8 to 64-bit 9). I keep meaning to type this up in a formal report (got a couple of worksheets with a lot of raw data), but I'll just post the summaries. Also note that this is on 64-bit Windows 7: 32-bit...

Re: best possible latency with live 9 and duet 2

I am only speaking about playing my keyboard controller .....not even recording. That I am sure would be even worse....I am using a Oxygen 49 controller....usb....to my brand new macbook pro. The Oxygen doesn't even need drivers....mac os just has them I guess....which kind of makes me think they m...

Re: best possible latency with live 9 and duet 2

overall latency of 9.06 ms. Its hard to play anything like this....is anyone getting anything better? Round trip latency of 9ms is almost imperceptible, and even the fastest interfaces on the market will give you 6-8ms RTL at a 128-sample buffer. If you're actually having trouble playing due to not...

Re: Glitches on Powerful Machine

I bought an IBM server (System x3755) with 4x Dual Opteron 2.6 , 16 GB RAM DDR2 ECC because I want to use it as a DAW unit. You intentionally bought this thing for use as a DAW? (Was it just a rock-bottom price that you couldn't turn down?) wjbuchanan's advice is right on... but you'd still have be...

Re: Live 9 upgrade path a RIP OFF - from a loyal user

Did anyone who replied to this thread actually read the OP? This 9 upgrade upset me so much. First of all, to get the 40GB content I had to spend $700 on new packs. I had live 8 suite, a huge library, eic-2, to replace that with 9 cost me over $1,000, before PUSH. He's not just talking about the bas...

Re: Help me understand hardware synth latency in L9

In Live 9 , make sure Help > Help View is enabled, then click Show all built-in lessons and step through both of these tutorials: Setting Up Audio I/O and Driver Error Compensation . Also carefully read section 14.1 Monitoring in the Live manual, because the way that monitoring affects how Live reco...

Well I have a quick link set up in Firefox that points to http ://forum.ableton.com/ I just now noticed that this redirects to https ://forum.ableton.com/ But regardless of which form of the URL I use, the site never remembers me now, once I close the browser.

Re: Multi-timbral VSTis in A9 - What is best practice?

Much thank Uoutsider. This is helpful but indeed very confusing. I had no trouble with Battery 4. All its outs are listed sensibly and reflected in the external instrument choosers also. Also why would one person's config differ from JB's video? If I remember right, he just didn't go far enough int...

Re: Multi-timbral VSTis in A9 - What is best practice?

Your vid seems spot on but I don't see the same outputs listed for my Kontakt 5 instrument. I have also setup 16 blank instrument slots in K5 and have used the automatic batch out to "create 1 out per instrument" as your follow up video suggested. Any thoughts where I could have gone wrong? This is...

Re: WTF Ableton?

This whole 32 bit vs. 64 bit situation reminds me of the old Mac days when you had to run both OS9 and OSX because software developers hadn’t switched over to OSX yet and it didn’t seem like a priority for many. That sucked major ass and I’m sure inspired many Mac users to migrate to PC. And then W...
