Are you sure you mean OS X 10.0.4?

I also have serious problems with Live 9.05. Sorry to say because I have had very little problems before. Even with early 8 versions. Never like this. Spinning wheel is just the beginning. And now I have a live performance in one week.

Today: starting new project with a couple of recorded loops and a mic input run through a number of delays, reverbs and other Live devices. Worked fine. When I closed the computer (OS X 10.6.8) and opened again it could not even start the seq or get any inputs from the sound card (MOTU Ultralite). There was also a Ultranova hooked up. I have sometimes problems to start the Live app. It seems to have problems with Automap. All this started with v. 9.05. Earlier versions of 9 worked fine.
