What are you using, eg laptop? controller? where

Post by SongCarver » Wed Dec 19, 2001 1:51 am

Hello all
especially Ataru,you seem to be the pioneer here.

I am wanting to know what everybody is using to run Live, what other software you use, and what controllers used.

I want to get a G4 laptop and a USB-428 interface/controller?

has anyone got something to say about this combination...is it a good time to buy a powerbook?

will the USB -428 have low enuff latency??

LIVE IS GREAT

thankyyou

I'm using a G3/500 dual-usb iBook [white] connected to a MOTU828. For control, I use a Peavey PC1600X and have 8 channels of optical ADAT audio coming from the MOTU828 into a Fostex VM88 digital mixer...

Pioneer? Moi?

Anyhow, I'd say don't buy a powerbook till Jan 7th at least, or the Tokyo Expo in Feb.

Apple's going to unleash some sweet new higher speed g3s and gighertz G4s. I'd be surprised if a 700 mhz+ powerbook G4 wasn't around the corner.

oh, and i do everything with my iBook 500 dvd with 256 of ram...

I'm waiting for a gighertz g4 powerbook, and then i'll move up.

I'm also going to get a midiman quatro and a pocket dial/control.

Live is currently running on a 333 mHz Bronzekey Powerbook. Unfortunately no firewire...
My old Kurzweil K2000 serves as trigger keyboard, PhatBoy as my continuous controller.
Hope in the near future to run everything from a Titanium with a Motu Firewire interface...

heye everybody,

i'm thinkin' of buyin' a G4 powerbook, too. d'you really think that it's like the most performance for the money. a toshiba notebook for like half-price with alost the same power (if one can compare) is pretty much below the price for a g4, and the rest-money would go into a nice motu828.

well, dunno, really don't wanna hop on that "I-need-a-mac-or-I-can't-work" train.

but hey, convince me, please.....

Hi ppl,

My system specs are:
Mac G4 dual 450MHz processor, 384MB,

LAP (Logic Audio Platinum) 4.8.1 for preproduction
and AL (Ableton Live) for the real nice work,

I use the Phatboy controler, but i prefer the Doepfer Pocket Dail,
supporting this controler (inc. and decr. comando's), would be realy cool!
masterkeyboard for triggering,
Emagic AMT8 to hookup the midi equipment,

MOTU 2408, the :evil: ASIO driver doesn't work in AL... i'm waiting for update v1.0.4 of AL

Well, that's about all,
oh yea, i almost forgot:
Ableton Live is realy cool 8) ,
can't go without it,
it's an innovation in electronic music,
my salvation and hope, haleluya ;) ,

May the music be with you,

FrankH

Warwick 4-string Electric Bass
Korg PadKONTROL
Novation Remote25 Keyboard
FCB 1010 MIDI Foot Pedal
MOTU Ultralite (soon to be!)
Macbook Pro C2D 15"
Ableton + various VST Instruments and effects (most designed to FSU)

Should be pretty immense once I get the firewire soundcard, as it really is the last missing piece of the puzzle!
