live cross-platform

Post by carbon » Wed Sep 17, 2003 8:19 pm

How well does Live for Windows handle a set containing aiffs created on a Mac? What I've got in mind is taking a set on CD from my mac (along with all supporting aiffs) and running it from a PC running Live. Anybody got any experience with this?

depending how you burn the aif, wav etc to cd for transferring, you might have to rename them, but if you do it right, it's great.
If your thing is ethernet, then it's probably even simpler...

be sure that all the aiffs have ".aif" at the end of the name and no illegal characters int he name. PC can't read files unless file extensions are part of the name (though you can set windows to hide files extensions for known types, they must be there for it to hide). also be sure that some of your aiffs aren't wav's as the wrong file extension will render the file unreadable.

there might be other issues too.
