What I see is a lack of understanding. Mac users are generally much more informed about Windows by necessity. They invariably use pcs at work, friend's houses or at public places like libraries etc. They decide to use macs based on personal experience. On the other hand, many but not all, pc users h...

You might be getting off to a bad start. It actually isn't necessary to have a midi controller to begin having fun learning the program. Try backing up a bit. Open up the tutorials and follow along step by step. They cover most of the basics. Later, you might visit the Live tips and tricks forum. Li...

Thank you! Regarding your comments about waiting, I obviously agree. I also think the amd chips could show up in the servers or towers. Could this be what universal binary really means - enabling apple to seemlessly jump between intel and amd? At least for the near future, intel chips are the way to...

macbook but not first revision

A friend who has deep connections with intel and amd gave me a few insights on the macbook yesterday. I told him I was considering an inexpensive thinkpad to use as a dedicated guitar fx system running iive etc. Ultimately, I've decided against it and will probaly begin saving for a macbook. He like...

I'd be so much happier if Live ran on Ubuntu or Debian even if it meant I was limited to built in plugs.

Thanks nebulae. That's good advice if I can just swallow the idea of configuring a pc for live and audio. I suppose I should also make sure my plugs are available as windows vsts.

I really am a nice guy most of the time.

I don't think you're a dick either. :)

Actually, I have more than 20 new skins but they're kind of all over the place. I lost my master hex reference chart a few weeks ago and have slowly been rebuilding it. I was very upset initially but now it seems to be a blessing in disguise as I've had to relearn what everything does. Most of the n...

It might be better to actually go with Live 4. Before upgrading to version 5, I used Live 4 moderately with some success on a low end powerbook g3 266 with a 5400 rpm drive. I do everything on a g4 mac mini now but miss the portability. A laptop just makes the most sense for playing out - as long as...

What is the cheapest laptop that will run Live 5?

What is the cheapest laptop that will run Live 5? I'm thinking of getting another laptop primarily for running Live 5 as a guitar effect setup. Ideally, I'd be looking for a used ibook but I'm willing to consider a used thinkpad or something along those lines. The g3 ibook starts at around $250 righ...

Can you describe how to reproduce it for me.

I've not had this problem using 10.3.9.

I never migrated to Tiger, not terribly impressed and everything is running well. :)

All of which makes me wonder if it's actually an internal Live? If PC users aren't seeing it, maybe 10.4 is the problem?

I'm on a mac too but haven't loaded the update.

Are you guys ALL using the macbook and/or intel macs or is this happening across the mac platform (affecting G4's and G5's)?

It's criminal that 48% of the voters are letft with no voice in the white office. From what I understand, European countries have the parties share power proportionally according to their percentage. We should adopt this here. I think the difference with most of our systems is that we have more pow...

I think the Supreme Court has only just begun to get involved. This ruling strongly suggests that they will be speaking out on the constitutionality of the NSA programs and more. It's easy to give up. Have some hope. The American people aren't stupid, just groggy from a long sleep filled with dreams...

The best defense is a good offense...or so they say. Noone really engages in debate now. When was the last time you saw a serious debate stay on topic instead of being deflected? Case in point, we're having a discussion about Bush, how the U.S. is seen by the world, majority decision and proportiona...
