Beatmaking is idiot speak for making music
I slipped into a daze, whilst I was there I heard the most startling music, it was at once familiar and alien, reassuring and unsettling.

Is there anyone just making beats? Like, no other instruments? Or when you're done "beatmaking" do you then start "bassmaking" and "leadmaking", maybe some "padmaking" and then some "vocalmaking" to finish it off? ;)

For some reason I'm getting a message that I don't have proper authorization to use the samples in this pack even though I definitely have a Live 9 Suite Educational License connected to this instance of Live. Any ideas why that might be?

I have installed the pack, and it shows in live under 'packs' - however when i navigate to the pack and its sub-folders in the live browser, all the folders are empty...

Where can i actually find all these 120 drum racks and all the other stuff?... Its installed but i cant find it anywhere and there are no instructions on where any of this should be or what any of it is called to search for it..

thanks

**EDIT** i reinstalled the pack and this time the folders are not empty and an ableton lesson appeared.

Yeah. I don't understand the snobbery behind laughing at there term beat making or laughing at people calling a backing track a beat.

It's short and to the point. If anything it is an efficient word :)

WKREISER- I ran into the same thing What finally worked for me was switching my default browser from Chrome to Safari and then authorizing. Something in Chrome was interrupting the process?

Same.. emailed support last week when it was released with a few pics of the errors but didn't get a reply unfortunately.

Not a clue what the issue is, and no idea how to fix it.

Contacted support last week and they got back to me.. Had to change my license and I needed to re-authorize for everything to work.

I think inspiration is one of the more important roles for the "free" packs. There are hidden gems of "the way of Ableton Live" in at least certain packs to pick up and make your own or ignore.
