Re: Using Max 4 Live "effects without owning M4L?

You act as if I was some kid on Ableton's lawn trying to steal their overly complicated lawn mower. I guess we should agree to disagree ;-) Because when put into this context I'm more inclined to say that I'm the kid who's complaining that you want the lawn mower man to do your lawn for free while ...

Re: Using Max 4 Live "effects without owning M4L?

But I do think M4L should be free for Suite owners. $700 is enough money to go around. Being a Suite owner, but also being a programmer myself, I strongly disagree. And no; I don't have easy cash to burn, grabbing Suite & M4L was quite the investment for me. But seriously; I disagree with a passion...

Re: Not possible? Selecting several clips, not just timespan?

Ah yes... I see what you mean now and also doubt if session view could provide you with a solution right now. At least not without messing a whole lot up.. Tried this with an Ableton demo liveset and it is indeed as you say; the moment where you want to insert something between two clips then things...

Re: Using Max 4 Live "effects without owning M4L?

You can't argue about share though, they are still touting that as a live 8 feature. Well, when you look on the products page you'll also see that the picture says "coming soon". It says so on both Suite and Live. Don't know how long its been like this, but it already was like this last December wh...

Re: saving exporting disabled.. why?

I get the message when I open a set I was working on. I just bought 8 and don't have operator or anything. The only thing I can think of is some of the instrument racks I might have used could be causing this because they are the limited presets added v8 which give you some knobs but no expadabilit...

Re: max for live licencing

That is explained on their website, the authorization section. In short; you're allowed to use it on multiple computers (doesn't say how much, I guess 2 is a safe bet) but copies may not be running at the same time.

Re: Not possible? Selecting several clips, not just timespan?

I think you should try another approach. From what I know so far I'd say what you're trying to do is possible, but it looks to me as if you're stuck in doing it "the Logic way" and thus try to turn Live into Logic. First of all: you cannot overlap clips in a track. A track can only play one clip at ...

Re: New Youtube show, each week features an ableton tutorial

Hmmm... Sorry, but I stopped after 1.5 minute; this stuff is not for me :) the first minutes I can basically summarize with "use some common sense" and after that I didn't quite envy seeing some skating part :P Maybe next time.. Though I didn't enjoy the vid. doesn't mean I don't appreciate the effo...

Re: HOW TO GET RID OF TIME SIGNATURE AUTOMATION?

The little red dot (more of a square IMO) denotes automation. It tells you that the control is being changed in the current arrangement. Press tab, you should see some red lines and such there, that is what's controlling your stuff. Anyway; removing is dead easy. Right click on the control; you'll s...

Re: Half the peeps I know with Live have cracked versions

Well, with cracks you only get so much... Its always a delicate subject; on one hand you want to protect your software as best as possible but on the other you also don't want to make it any more difficult than required for paying customers. Reminds me of the good ole C64 days where some software ve...

Re: Software Instruments license

my problem is the following; I recently installed Ableton (Live 8 ) on my computer (running Mac OS X) but I'm not able to use the software instruments. With software instruments you refer to Sampler, Operator, etc. ? Because that's quite logical; those instruments aren't included with Live 8, only ...

Re: Should I buy Max AND MaxFor Live for $350?

If your only goal is extending Live then I personally wouldn't bother with Max and use the money on something else. You don't need Max in order to use M4L.

The link in the Max Help Menu, which hoffman2k kindly mentioned above, is sort of a changelog for both Max and MaxForLive.
I know, its exactly the same list which is listed in the URL I posted ;)

Re: Live 8 + 9 instruments?

That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the link. I suppose I probably could have done a quick search before I spammed up the forum. I'll download the Suite installation and see what happens. Nah, they make these forum things to be used you know :) Anyway, please keep us posted on how things work out...
