Live 8.03 running 4 days in a row without crashing

Post by pepezabala » Mon Jun 22, 2009 7:20 pm

Well, we had made this installation for the Sonar festival, and have been using Live 8 as sequencer. It has been running 4 days in a row without crashing. Lots of midi input (visitors shaking the wiimote which controlled 4 effectracks and tweaking a nanokontrol which controlled 9 channels of midi instruments and drumracks).
They left the computer running over night, and while the first amplifier blew out after 24 hours, the computer (a macbook pro 1,83 ghz), Live 8.03, OSCulator and reacTIVision did not crash one time.

While I initially had complained a lot about live 8 crashing on me, I have to give lots of respect to it now after this weekend.

Here a video from the installation:

Also big respect to Camille who made this wonderful piece of software called OSCulator!!!

guess it depends what you're doing - luck of the draw!

I'm still sending a bug report in pretty frequently.... a lot of crashing
