I really have no problems with people liking/loving/advocating their platform, but just saying how happy you are on a different platform isn't helpful.
I manage to work around it for now, but the biggest problem is Live often crashes without noticing it crashed itself (yes, that's an odd sentence).
It goes 'poof'. Windows notices, but I hear they closed down their Ableton Live Bug Hunt department so they could work on Vista, so I'm not sending Redmond any crashlogs.
The Live beta I tested did notice and create stuff for me to send through. 6.0.3 doesn't anymore (I guess it lacks the bug reporting algorithms) so I can only go on what I see.
When dualcore support is OFF everything loads fine. When it's ON when Live loads a set, I see the data/samples/midi... the mouse pointer changes to a hour glass for about a second and it crashes.
I would surmise that after loading the set Live sends out some last code "get ready for this" which trips up Live when it's in dualcore setup. What that is I don't know. I've not had Live crash on me EVER when dualcore support is OFF.
Is there anyone here who had a similar setup (so a Windows machine, XP Pro, dualcore cpu, an ESI ESP1010)?
I'm full out of ideas, see...
