the lighter version of Traktor leaves out something I found totally necessary (ability to record a mix onto the same computer that you're mixing on) so that's why I wanted to check to see if Intro is missing some essential function ...

i got live 8 a few days ago but haven't done much with it yet besides fiddle around with drum sounds and arpeggiators. any general tips and tricks for getting started?

fiddle round with arpeggiators some more

sounds good, it is pretty satisfying.

slice loop to MIDI.
then arpegiate the slices.

i did that with a stretch from a rainbow and curved air and it turned it into happy hardcore.

February the 6th! I was expecting it to be later than that.
Doesn't look like a massive change from 9 but i'm not sure one was needed.

It's got CPU issues making it unusable compared to 9 on my aging system (stolen, but I doubt they inserted cpu-related problems as an anti-piracy measure)

I get crackling with basically nothing playing (e.g. 4/4 kick samples), and they don't go away until buffer size is bumped up high enough that you can't even really use the thing.
― Dan I., Monday, 12 February 2018 01:22 (five years ago) link
no really, what's the best controller if what I basically want is the interface from the Yamaha RS-7000

I'm planning to upgrade from my cheap laptop to a proper desktop PC to make Ableton a bit easier to use but there seems to be a load of people online saying that their 8/16GB, 3.8ghz, hexacore, I7, etc, machines still struggle massively with polyphony in Operator. How much of an issue is CPU load with a relatively decent PC spec now?
― ShariVari, Wednesday, 13 February 2019 12:38 (four years ago) link
nothing helpful to add but that is discouraging

so for the track I hope to make for the ILX quarantine comp I'm running Live 10 Suite on my dinky MacBook Air I bought for school just about two years ago and with only 4 MIDI channels + barely any FX it's already pushing 25% CPU load. This is going to get sporty I think
― El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 March 2020 01:30 (three years ago) link
Freeze tracks whenever possible
― Dan I., Monday, 23 March 2020 01:38 (three years ago) link
What are you using the midi channels for? what vst do you have loaded, or...
― Tib, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 10:04 (three years ago) link
are you working completely in the box? or do you have gear attached?

Completely in the box
― El Tomboto, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 11:45 (three years ago) link
I’m using the same Mac mini that I’ve been using since 2009 running logic pro seven. I did get a new midi controller though.

for as long as I’ve been doing this I’ve become pretty decent at mixing inside the box except when it comes to vocals. I think because I just barely ever do it but I’ve never really mastered it or even come close.

How many goddam tracks does anyone need anyway?(caveat I have no idea what Tombot's music is like, maybe you need 10 tracks just for the drums)
― Tib, Monday, 30 March 2020 07:08 (three years ago) link
choose vst's or patches carefully (some of those wavetable patches are heavy on my cpu) , draw automation instead of twiddling the knob (or at least redraw the curves to mirror the twiddling to get rid of a lot of whatever those little points on the curve are called), freeze as Dan said.
or just "Free-form plague poetry over a VCS3 freakout" as per suggestion in ilm thread.

Live 11 is coming in Q1 2021.
The additions look useful but not enormously transformative. Better CPU performance would be good though.

Comping is very welcome, have been waiting for that for years. Spectral fx looks fun but nothing I haven't got elsewhere. Probability means I will probably never use Renoise again as thats pretty much the main reason I occasionally use it. The macro stuff looks awesome, especially no longer having to piss around with ClyphX scripts and commands.All in all, looking forward to complaining for a few months then not being able to resist dropping £150 on an upgrade of Suite (again)
