Ableton Crashes when i drag audio from the browser

Post by monkeysee » Wed Jan 19, 2011 1:41 pm

When i drag and drop an audio track(song, sample, whatever) from the browser , 50% or more of the time ableton crashes, i have no idea why, before i get really angry and contact them, i was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if theres a special way the library should be set up, any help would be appreciated muchos.
ps, using 821
thanks, shane

Just so other people might be able to help (as I can't really), supply the spec of your machine.

And also, try "repair the library" in Preferences.

It might be related to what plugins you allready have loaded. I remember I used to get this alot back in the early v8 days whenever I has Sylenth1 loaded.
If you select a track and double click to load an instrument however it didnt crash.

Havnt had this happen for a long time now though.
Nothing to see here - move along!

It's sad... ableton just crashes, for all kinds of things... every time I find a solution to my crashes, I find something new to crash Live with...

Even when I saw Mimosa do a live set recently... he got a crash in the middle of his set... I sat there laughing thinking in my head "fuck ableton! I'd hate it if I didn't love it so much!"

by all means, contact them, they want to and need to hear from you. send them your .als file.
