I got a refurbished late 2012 rmbp 2.6ghz i7 with a 512 SSD and 8gigs of RAM. This is an upgrade from a 5 year old second hand mbp that i had for the last 3 years and I tell ya I'm like a pig in shit! I'm loving the new trackpad scrolling gestures and the display is gorgeous (only a matter of time before live gets optimised for it)

Also I have to go back on something I said earlier about the Live content being something I tend not to use. The new drum content is really very good, couple that with fast preview in the browser and any qualms I had about using content the world has access to goes out the window; theres simply too many quality options to worry about somebody spotting it as native content in a track. I think Nerve and RMV are going to start feeling neglected. Also the new midi editing tools are really good.

Crashes constantly - email back and forwards with the suite 9.0.4! Elastic Player (last version) crashes with It! T Rack Deluxe crashes with It! I work with both 32bit and 64bit! They both crashed! Understandable for 32bit when you use more Ram over 4 gig (and you will if you have the full library for Ableton Suite 9.0.4 unless you are freezing tracks like you are in Siberia), but why 64bit version as well???

Anybody else experienced problems?

Thanks Ret

Hi There,

Generally I'm pretty happy with 9.

But ....

It still crashes - randomly as far as I can tell! Which just sucks :evil:

I just use live for recording now. I used to use live for DJ'ing but got too risky.

I now use Traktor for DJ'ing which is actually much more fun with the S2.

Good release with some good improvments and new stuff, but ...

sort the F***ing stability out!!

Yep, I'm happy with Live 9 glad I upgraded. The new browser doesn't bother me either. the only time I have had Live crash is when using some 3rd party plug-ins and that's rare. In fact I'm not going to buy any more plug ins until I know Live 9 inside out.I get the feeling I am only scratching the surface with what Live can do (or what I can do with Live).

Coincidently, I'm looking for a book on live that goes beyond the basics if anyone can recommend one.
