Live 9 Suite 32-Bit Compatibility?

Hello,

 

I'm getting ready to install the Live 9 Suite (32-Bit) on my main music rig and wanted to get some feedback:

System Specs: MacBook Pro 17-inch (Early 2011), 2.2 GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, 8GB SDRAM, Mountain Lion (10.8.3), Logic Pro 9 (9.1.8), Pro Tools 10 (10.3.4).

Is the Live 9 Suite (32-Bit) working well (Slaved) to Logic (32-Bit) & Pro Tools?

Also, does the Max for Live installation go alright on my type of set up?

And are there any other issues or pitfalls I should be aware of?

 

Thanks!

    Max for Live should be fine. It is good that you have more than 4 gigs of ram, so good on you because you can use all 4 gigs that Ableton can handle as a 32 bit app.

    The only real pitfall is if you are using a whole bunch of samples or recordings. Those things add up, and are stored on your ram whenever you have a live set open. Personally, I have both 32 and 64 bit installed on my computer in case I need some more memory for sample heavy projects. The trade off comes with when you want to load 32 bit applications into the 64 bit Live App.

    I'm not sure about the slave to the other applications, but I'm sure it can be done either by having live slave or the opposite.

    The process should be pretty similar to this though:

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Anyone else care to comment regarding their experiences with using Live 9 as a Slave with the latest versions of Logic & Pro Tools?

    Thanks!

    In order to have Ableton Slave to Logic - you need to open both apps in 32 bit mode.

    Cheers.
