Just found this out today ... CPU-hungry plugins can cause clicks and pops on completely unrelated tracks.

I had Replika XT on a bus, so to save CPU, I set up automation to turn on the plugin only when needed. When I was working on the mixdown of the finished song, I noticed this weird pop in the drum track. Even when solo'd, it would still pop. I finally figured out that it was the exact spot where Replika was being turned on via automation. Even though the drum track was not being routed to the track with Replika on it, the CPU hit was enough to cause a problem.

Increasing my buffer size fixed it.

When you hold CMD (Mac) and drag a transient, it locks the surrounding transients in place. Very handy, and won't mess up the nearby transient placement.


Warm thank you, never noticed this feature... big time saver 8) :idea:

i slide transients around like that when matching doubled vocal phrases to the previous takes. I can stretch individual parts in vocal phrases. So I get the "doubled" vocal vibe and the phrases match perfectly (ish).
I assume people use Melodyne to do similar things but it is really fast in Live.

We can select multiple points in the graphical window of EQ8.

Click, hold and draw a frame over the desired points.
Then move them horizontal or vertical with your cursor keys.
Very convenient to do changes without loosing relations.

Funny i didn´t knew that... :roll:

i mentioned this in tips and tricks before, but two things
1 you can drag and re order the macro columns to whatever order you want in the macro menu

2 if you have a nested rack that is macroed inside of a outer macro, it wont let you change the name of the inner macro, UNLESS, you first highlite that inner rack, THEN you can right click rename it.
