To those who upgraded from Live 8-9.

Post by kitekrazy » Sat Apr 06, 2013 2:49 am

Were you so daring to delete Live 8?

I have the Live 9 Suite. Is there anything that came in the Live 8 Standard Library worth holding on to?

It seems I could reclaim a lost of disk space on two drives. Live 8 32/64 take up over 3gb on the C drive. Live 8 library takes up 14 gigs on another drive. Some of those instruments are probably in the 9 Suite.

I have to keep Live 8 for work as some of my mastering plugins cause glitches at the very start of the track... but only when rendering. Live 8 they still work perfectly.

Hi kitecrazy :D


Why have Live 8 suite on an external hard drive? Around 1Tb should be more than enough.

Free's up main C drive and they are reasonably inexpensive to buy these days

be aware that when you delete your live8 library you might find later that some of your old sets miss samples from that very library.

Also be aware that there are lots of presets in live8library that are not there in the live9 library. But also lots of duplicates.

I took the opportunity to have a good spring clean & deleted everything L8 related when I installed 9.

Time will tell whether this was the right decision :)

I have 4 internal drives. I keep all libraries, samples, Kontakt, rompler libraries on separate drives. Having 14gb of material not being used is a waste.

So maybe I could drag stuff out of the 8 library into 9 but exclude duplicates?

Where there any unique presets in 8? I had the 8 suite download and now the 9 Suite. The 8 Suite is much smaller. I wouldn't' know if there were some valuable 8 presets worth keeping. I'm still very new to Live.

as far as i have seen there were many more presets for guitar amps etc. in live8 suite for example.

I deleted 8 after migrating my library of presets, Live 9 will not automatically copy the custom presets made in any of lives native instruments.. for example I had a bunch of 128 in the instrument rack folder as well as sampler , drum rack, etc.. I had to drag those from Live 8 to User Library so that I could get live 8 off the main hard drive.. it worked but took alot of time. I had to reinstall my packs.
But now the browser brings up anything relevant to my search regardless of instrument /file type.. I like this. :o

just right click and remove from sidebar and voila Live 8 is gone.

BTW Live 9 only shows its instruments and no presets under "Instruments" menu. You have to have your presets in your user library for Live to see the presets from Live 8 and custom presets.

I think Live 8 Library had many more presets.

you have 4 internals, and you're worried about free space?

I upgraded from L8 suite to 9 suite - having moved my L8 library to large rotating media, my L8 installation (in Program Files) only took up 1G on the SSD. Not big enough to worry about imo.
Live 9.6 Suite / Max 7.2 / REAPER / Reaktor 6 / Win10 64bit / 4.2GHz i7 / 32GB DRAM / SSD / 828mk3 / 4 x HR824 / QX25 / HPD-15 / Sonor club kit / Mother-32 and a growing Eurorack.

I keep my old version. A 1TB drive cost about $100 last time I checked (probably cheaper now). That means hard drive storage costs $1 for 10GB. So keeping 15 gigs around costs me $1.50 in hard drive storage. I'll happily spend less than a cup of coffee costs to be sure that if something fucks up I can easily roll back :D
