Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Ableton Live 9 and Max for Live
« on: November 21, 2013, 01:10:54 PM »
Mike, i have updated to 9 from Version 6 and i´m happy i did!

I haven´t spend time with Max but it looks promising….but for all the other changes they made it´s a HUGE improvement! I love the new browser, as it is much more clearer and easy to navigate through. Also the cpu usage hasn´t changed on all on my computer - and that´s a big plus when having 3 versions between!

I played a bit with the audio to midi option and it works really well! Tried as a test some schumann piano pieces to see how good the algorithm works - the results were more than acceptable! Just some duration mistakes but otherwise almost 1:1 and that is really amazing! Couldn´t done better by Melodyne!!!

Ordered also the Push controller…and that is really a killer!!! The integration is almost perfect and VERY easy to navigate through racks and patches…the only criticism i have is that right now the integration works only for Ableton plugs smoothly…for 3rd party vst/vsti you have to build a rack first….but i´m pretty sure this will be fixed with a next update! Forget about any other 3rd party controller - Push blow all away (and the best, it´s manufactured by AKAI).

Will update here, after going more into all the adds!

Greetings,
Tomas

Thanks for your thoughts about the Live 9 upgrade. I already have the Akai APC20, so I'll just continue to work with that, rather than get rid of it and purchase a Push.

I'm leaning toward getting the Studio version of 9 rather than the Standard version. Max for Live is interesting to me as something to explore creating my own devices, and I also think some of the pre-built Max for Live devices might be useful.

Yeah, APC20 isn´t bad at all too…but with any of those controllers it´s always the same issue - you have to adjust a lot of parameters…that´s why i mentioned the great integration of Push. If you have a bit spare money i think it´s worth to think about the suite version…really, it comes with a lot of great additional instruments and a huge library. Still haven´t used Max so far…but is it included in the studio/standard version? I don´t think so but maybe you meant the Suite anyway...

Cheers,
Tomas

well, I understand people take it personal when expressing a disklike for a DAW, but it is like that, every one use different DAW and all think they are the best..

You will be surprised, but Live is not my main DAW  ;D Sorry to disappoint, but actually it´s Cubase!

My references regarding audio quality in ableton, I am sorry but I will not dig up many year old threads on forums.

A shame, as this would make your clearly expressed conclusion more valuable!

Quote from: Immersion
in the version nine they say on their website that the rendering audio quality has been " dramatically improved" so I guess it was not good before.

I guess the earth is a pane  ;D

Quote from: Immersion
people in different forums did complan about the sound quality...

Do you have any references/links?

My complain is, that you speak much too general and just judging by what people in forums (!) saying. Don´t want to sound negative, but imo this isn´t really a good source!

Quote from: Immersion
Ok but  a lot of people use it only for session view I can promise you that..

I can promise, that a lot of people use A or B for C and D….this kind of statement works for anything when you are not concrete about something...you get the point?

Quote from: Immersion
Why are you using ableton ?

:: extremely stable (especially for live conditions)
:: really cpu friendly
:: easy to use for quick ideas
:: perfect looping options
:: warp markers
:: configurable for several screens
:: audio to midi (new)
:: rack options
:: tweaking in session while recorded in view with edit options afterwards
:: library (suite)
:: etc

.. which is use the cpu better and gives better sound quality.

I would really like to know what are the reasons you claim that Reaper has better sound quality? Any proofs for that?

Quote from: Immersion
"the latest Sonar X3 seem to be very inspired form Ableton it have the session view...which is the only thing why people use ableton.

It seems you have a strong and especially personal (!) idea about why people are using Live! I´m sorry to say, but your judgement does´t work for me at last  ;D

I expect there will be many excited users saying "Wow, this is insanely fast and quiet, and I have 3 separate 4k displays connected via HDMI and they all look amazing…" that sort of thing.

LOL  ;D Very likely!

Quote from: mgriffin
The people who will be disappointed -- those we discussed earlier, who need lots of internal expansion capabilities -- already know they will be disappointed based on the specs announced. They probably won't be surprised, positively or negatively.

I´m not sure about that…as we see in the video (and also other places) there are quite a lot of complains about it even before available….usually this happened very seldom with new stuff by Apple! I assume (pro) customers in this time are more aware and having good comparison options (especially to the previous model).

Was curious and checked the German refurbished shop some minutes ago…same here - nothing at all and i do remember very well at last 5-10 Mac Pro´s on stock when i looked for the Macbook i mentioned earlier…that´s really surprising and probably for the reason you mentioned.

Had also a look on Ebay and (at last here) there are some few sellers still having the previous model. Really curious if Apple is making business with the new model! Maybe they do the same U-turn like Microsoft did with XP  ;D

Thanks Guys for all the comments!

I´ve finally decided to wait too…anyway i´m fine with Mountain Lion so far.

Cheers,

Agreed!

Another option: You may find one of the latest previous Mac Pro which can add a lot of RAM too - but probably (like for all 2nd Hand Macs) you will have to pay still a steep price.

Mike, don´t forget that people usually eat what they get served in the Apple universe and mainly applaud in chorus….at the end i can see in anything something positive even it´s a step backwards.

Example: I was replacing my Macbook Pro (2011) which have 2 HD´s inside (DVD replaced by a caddy for a second HD) as i need more storage. Now with all the new 15´series this isn´t anymore possible as they decide to make the book smaller for "fashion" reasons…moreover now you have to decide right now (when purchasing a new model) for a SSD size…there is NO chance to replace it later by something else yourself….that´s just a stupid and devil behavior.

Same for the Retina display…it´s a joke to force people to go for this nonsense resolution where you can´t recognize anymore things without a magnifier (especially for music programs).

Luckily i bought on the last minutes a previous model (i7, 2.6 Ghz) before the stupid announcement-conference started.

Any chances of an el culto Bandcamp happening?

Sorry to say, but no plans for that as we are specialized and focused on physical products only.

I just recently purchased a used Klaus Wiese's Soma cd for $43.97....the most money Ive ever spent on a single cd.  A perfect copy it is but thats crazy or I am. 

Tomas are you listening.  Digital editions of Klaus Wiese out of print music as Castleview suggested.  :)


Someone is calling me  ;D

Soma isn´t official available at the moment - just spoke about that with the label today

Nevertheless, today we´ve managed to got some other old and long time sold out KW CDs (Turandot/Monsoon/Tariqa)  :)

From what i´ve read so far (specifications, expansion options, price????) for me it´s what it looks like…a trash bin  ;D

Hi there,

someone around here already running it?

It seems they changed quite a lot there!

It´s tempting because it´s free...BUT….never change a running system  ;D

Sorry, but i couldn´t resist  ;D

Julio,

maybe worth to try it first with Reaper (free, but full Version) before buying the wrapper  :)

That are great news  :) Works even without the NUKE controller!

But it seems the plugin is a bit fussy with some hosts:

What I thought was cool about Acoustic Mirror was the use of impulses from the acoustics of actual spaces like Chicago's Navy Pier.  I saw a series of concerts in that pier, and it was fun comparing my memory of that space with the plugin.

Forrest

Hi Forrest,

i agree, Acoustic Mirror is a great plugin but the GUI is terrible  >:( But it seems Sony don´t have any interest to update their Plugins.
