General / Miscellaneous / random buggyness caused by bad PSU
« Last post by chrisNova777 on Today at 11:48:49 AM »
just writing a quick note to remind some people that theres many different problems that
can be caused by using a bad PSU for your computer

i recently had the problem of bad SPDIF audio coming from my built in REALTEK SPDIF output,
i tried many things to fix it - replaced the cable 3-4 times only to find the problem resolved itself when
i finally replaced the psu with a 500watt power supply replacement
focusrite Saffire (2004?)
The Saffire's eight analogue outputs can be set up for surround monitoring, or they can be used to provide separate monitor mixes

Ableton Live! / v9 is the last 32-bit version of Ableton Live
« Last post by chrisNova777 on Today at 06:30:36 AM »

Live 32-bit discontinued

    Operating System: All
    Live Versions: 1 - 9

Due to persistent out-of-memory crashes during use, Live 9 is the last version of Live which will be available in 32-bit. Live versions 10 and onwards are available in 64-bit only. It is possible to install two instances of Live on your computer in case you still need to continue using a 32-bit version of Live.

Note: The 32-bit version of Live 9 will remain permanently available to download in your User Account.

The 32-bit version of Live (like all 32-bit applications) can use a maximum of 4GB of RAM only, which can quickly be exceeded when using large multisamples or memory-hungry plug-ins, resulting in crashes. In contrast, the 64-bit version of Live can use a theoretical maximum of 16 exabytes of RAM - much more RAM than computers actually have. This means you can work with Live Sets that are much larger and more memory-intensive than in the 32-bit version.

Legacy Plug-ins: If you are using legacy 32-bit plug-ins, please read our articles on using JBridge or 32 Lives to bridge plug-ins on Windows and Mac.

Further reading: For more information check our 64-bit vs. 32-bit FAQ.
