Live 9 suite lib very small?

Post by BobTheDog » Tue Sep 24, 2013 3:28 pm

Hi Guys.

Is the Live 9 suite lib small or do I have a problem here?

For instance if I go to places->Core Library->Sounds->Brass I have 4 sounds listed, Piano&keys I have 11, Winds I only have 2.

Does this sound right?

Thanks for any help

Andy

Yes, it's really small.

I really don't understand why...

A major selling point of Live 8 Suite was the hugely expanded library of sounds.

Now with 9, the got rid of seemingly 75% of it...

bizarre.

Hi M,

Thanks for the info.

I upgraded from the normal 8 to 9 suite and there seems far less content, very strange!

Cheers

yup, still waiting on that live8 legacy pack that was promised back at the launch of live 9.............

Participated in beta, had to completely erase my live 8 library and install, not about to go through installing all of live8 just to install its library to get at the presets

Glad it's not just me who feels the library is kind of light. Especially now that I'm using Push mainly with Live, I'd kill for more Instrument Racks to use as starting point. Tons of drums, very few instrument sounds.

I think a lot of that is orchestral stuff and the studio drums though,
