Re: Take 5 jazz vs. Ableton Looper vs. Akai EWI wind synth!

Absolutely loved that. And it made me want to get my EWI out. Is that a remote MIDI transmitter or audio?

Re: help with upgrades-asus xonar version le 6 to 7 to 8

I stuck a Xonar into my system as a gaming card, but much prefer my Firebox when it comes to anything audio (ASIO drivers, for a start). The Xonar is, IMO, the best general consumer sound card out there.

Re: Decent article about honesty in the software biz...

That announcement was what spurred me to finally buy Live Suite. I'm a dev, I understand about bugs. It's rare that a company is upfront like this, and I think it should be encouraged and rewarded. And I bet, to avoid having to do something similar with 9, it goes through a more rigorous QA cycle...

Re: Calling all Texas user groups

I just signed up for the Austin group. I'm going to try and make it out to a meeting at least once a month, it looks like a great vibe.

Re: Silly Question About Presonus Firebox

Mine has been turned on for a couple of years now. It gets warm, but not hot. It does seem odd that there's no power switch, however, agreed. Still and all, the blue LED is segzy.

Re: What Acoustic Guitar do you play?

My baby is a Koa-bodied Taylor 420 that I got for Christmas in the early 90s to play bluegrass on. I'd gone into the shop with the intention of spending about $3K US on a Martin, but the moment my left hand hit this one, I knew it was mine. I kept putting it back on the rack and playing more Martins...

Re: it is time for ableton live 64-bit app...

Hmmm. The first couple of threads I found on here when I searched for 64-bit were of the "When oh when will we get 64-bit?" variety. I'll look deeper. Waiting in my email this morning was a nice note and an agreement to a refund. Now I am torn.:x On the one side, awesome customer service. On the oth...

That would be awesome. But why does the FAQ say that it doesn't?

Re: it is time for ableton live 64-bit app...

Since it's 10:45 PM in Germany, I doubt too much is happening with it. I dunno, maybe they keep musician hours. Since I bought the download version less than 90 minutes ago, and never completed a d/l, and never actually activated anything, I don't think it's unreasonable to request a refund. I don't...

Re: it is time for ableton live 64-bit app...

Logic, Digital Performer, Pro Tools LE/MP/HD, Samplitude, Vegas/Sound Forge and others are still 32 bit only apps too. AFAIK, Sonar, Cubase and Reaper are the only apps that offer a 64 bit version. Yeah, I'd gone from Sonar to Cubase because of score issues, and wanted to add Ableton for doing some...

Re: it is time for ableton live 64-bit app...

I just bought Live about 10 minutes ago. It never occurred to me that, in 20-freaking-10, a DAW wouldn't support 64-bit. Unbelievable.

edit: I've emailed support about a refund, we'll see what they say.
