Live Set Opens, Cant Do Anything

Post by ACSLATER92 » Mon Nov 14, 2011 9:02 pm


So ive been having this problem for a bit

After I save a set, close ableton and everything..

when i come back and open the set, i can see everything and scroll around but no functions work at all. play button does nothing, and when i try a command for consolidate or anything i get the colour wheel for about 10 minutes and then it crashes.

Is there anything i can do to recover this set?

Ever since I upgraded to 8.2.6 from 8.2.2 I occasionally get the same thing (PC based).

Are you able to open/play other alp files and just not this particular one, or is this with *all* files? Also, what sort of setup are you using?

I had the same thing with some sets. I discovered that sometimes touchable control surface causes this. Are you using midi controllers or ipad?
Run live, go to midi tab in preferences and disable all control surfaces. Then try to load a set. To this couple of times and enable control surface each time in midi preferences to check what causes the problem.
