How to synchronize both Ableton Live libraries?

Post by redglass » Tue May 11, 2010 9:43 pm

Hi folks,

I use 2 PCs with Live 8.1.3 and I find myself adding samples, puremgnetc stuff and other things adding to the Live Library.

Is there a way to synchronize automatically the library on both machines?

I have the same "problem". Put your library on for example Dropbox and change the Library Location on both machines

Have you heard of a program called subversion? It's used by software developers to manage multiple people working on the same project. It's a bit of work to set it up, but once done it's just a click on a context menu to synchronise any PC with the your master repository. Check this thread that I posted some time ago. --> http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=131300

I use Syncback (freeware version): http://www.2brightsparks.com/downloads.html. Easy as they come.

On macs you can easily use rsync to do this. There are windows ports of rsync for free if you google it.
