unable to edit Max midi device

When I try to edit a Max midi device by pressing the edit button in Live 8.1.1, Max loads and then hangs without opening the presentation. If I try the same with an audio device everything works fine. When I inadvertently killed the Live process, instead of Max, I noticed a midi related error in the...

Re: Ext. Instruments in Drum Racks

As far as i know the external instrument is designed to use with midi hardware stuff, i cannot imagine why you would need it for a vst.

Re: broken max for live preset and big latency

you should use the beta 8.1.1.b5.
then uninstall max for live from the live preferences menu.
search for .alp file in the max for live program folder, should be something like maxforlive.alp.
double click it, it will install max into live.
everything should work now.

Re: Looking For Recommendations for Easy flawless Midi interface

If you really need that much separate in - and outputs go for the midi express, they perform well with Live.
Otherwise daisy-chain or buy a cheap midi thru box.

Re: The Schwarzonator is stupid

for some reason i find it really appalling, why write/perform music if you cant take the time to learn basic chords.
I find it appalling. Why write if you can not use proper capitalization?

Re: Multi Channel Plug in Output Support in the future?

However, all audio I/O in Max for Live is currently stereo, as is true for all Live devices." Doesn't that mean that live's output is never mono? Multiple outputs from vst is already possible in live. If you want to use that as surround you have to send them to specific outputs of your audiocard. S...

Re: Hardware sampler for creative sampling

use them only as fx; 12 bit sounds different then resampling in live. s950 sounds metallic, not crunchy like an sp1200 one thing that stands out are the types with analog filters. not the emax two, that's good but not analog. emax I or EII/EIII are, plus the prophet 2000/2002/3000. the korg dss1 is ...

Re: How do you feel about Live's plugins?

Yesterday i compared eq8 to some urs plugins and the sonnox eq. With low q settings, the differences were very small to my surprise. With wide q the eq8 had less impact than other plugins. The biggest difference is that some plugz have more wow factor out of the box. That's the thing with most ablet...

Re: Is anyone else experiencing lag in live with 8.1?

Upgrading to 8.1 also changed my libraries so now there is no going back first, always make sure you have a backup of your library before you upgrade. But i think you can go back: - rename your current library when live is not running - start live 8.09 - it wil nag about the library. - give it a ne...

Re: Improvement of the Audio Engine in Ableton!!!

How do you want me to define more musical?

That's what I meant.
It means different things to different people, so it's not a good way to judge things.
