If you are part of our beta testing process, there is a new beta which has some changes that we would like help testing regarding fan noise:

I noticed this line in the beta release notes: "On macOS, Live now uses Apple's Metal framework to present its UI on supported hardware."

I wouldn't be surprised if that helps a bit too...

Sorry, but I'm sure it is definitely Ableton Live, that makes my MacBook Pro 16" running hot !

I work as well a lot with protools, and the MacBook Pro is so quiet all the time... just switch to Ableton, with a blank session, without any plugins and the ventilation starts running, and the book getting hot ...

Ableton have to look at this ... !! Or, sooner or late I will move ...


identical problem here too ... identica!! ... with an external monitor and with the latest beta version 10.1.25b3

He knocks the temperature to the top, but after 10-15 minutes the temperature drops by 25-30%, all with an empty project-session.
Then the macbook pro 16-inch i9 becomes quite noisy and I constantly get the impression that everything is on edge.

And it really forces me to work in Logic but the problem is that I work a lot on Push 2 and then it’s all pretty frustrating all together.
