Ableton already loaded a project after starting up.

Post by sunshine4 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 8:24 pm

I've got some issues after starting up Ableton since today. After it crashed this afternoon - everytime i will start it "fresh and without clicking on a project" it already has a project loaded - ready to begin.
I just want a new empty one to start a new project. :(

Does anyone has a guess what it might be?

Thanks.

Using:
Mac OS X 10.7.3
MacBook Air Late 2011
Ableton 8.2.7

Your preferences were probably trashed in the crash.

Locate the preferences file, delete and set all your preferences over again.

At first: Remember if you wanna do something right do it on console!
After i dismissed the GUI and returned to commandline on my Mac i finally found it.

The file is located under /Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences/Ableton/yourLiveVersion.
But you have to delete the Template.als file - to start Ableton without any project loaded, wich you might have saved as default setup.

Hope this will help you, if you got the same problem.
