what happened to the yellow max devices? at first they were blue, but then there was that update 2 or so years ago, and they turned yellow and had better interfaces (imo). now with live 11, it seems they are back to the blue ones. any one else encountered some confusing stuff like this?

Yeah I have noticed that. I stopped using those built-in Max devices at some point though - they were somehow unreliable and buggy I felt.

Waiting for Ned Rush to get ahold of this and make a Windowlicker tutorial using the new spectral time effect

 

I wish Native Instruments would re-release Spektral Delay as a plugin.

I haven’t experienced performance issues, but I have seen some weird interface issues, where it will be difficult to dial in a parameter because the value keeps increasing, but manually entering works.

the thing is the blue lfo doesn’t have the expandable MAPPING window where you can map to more parameters with a customizable 0%-100% range.

Yeah, to be honest I think my performance issues were related to hooking the LFO to ControlChange8 to modulate filter cutoff in hardware. The problem with that is the LFO is more fine grained than MIDI 0-127 so the result was CC8 spamming gear with MIDI even though the underlying value in 0-127 scale did not change at all.

I ended up fixing this in the M4L device itself, just setting it to only send a MIDI CC if the value really changes.

I have a pirated version of ableton, I think 9. If I want to legit buy a copy of 11 would the old serial number conflict with the new one?

no idea. chances are your pirated copy is not dialing up the ableton server every time you launch it to do the handshake copy protection thing.. but if you're worried just uninstall the pirated version before you install the legit copy.

Hmm I wonder if uninstall will be good enough or a Windows wipe would be in order...

Not sure what you mean by "conflict".

Anyway I had a similar situation before getting a legit version of 9 so I don't think you will have any kind of problem with it.

Like if ableton detects that I'm a fucking theif somehow. I'm sure they don't take kindly to do that sort of stuff.

Well if they cared at all they could just google your posts right here in a public forum. 😄

I mean if it came to light that Ableton was secretly spying on all the other software that you have installed on your computer - which they would have to do in order to detect "pirated" copies of Live - then you bet that people would have found out and raised hell about it. Also, do you think Ableton would fuck over their new clients that just gave them $$$ with this bullshit? Do you think anyone who pirates Live would ever buy the legit version if they got sued or something?

Piracy is even kind of good for them because people can try out the software and sometimes end up paying for the full version, why would they break that flow.

And as I said, I used to have a non legit version of Live on my computer, probably I still have in some backups or old hard drives and I also have legit copies of Live 9 and 10 Suite so I don't think you will have a problem.

I remember Gerhard Belles saying in an interview that was published around the time Ableton incorporated Cycling '74 that piracy wasn't really a priority for them and he said something along the lines that he himself wasn't too bothered by it.
