I did this screenshot for participating to the discussion at CDM: createdigitalmusic.com/2008/07/16/how-do-you-perform-show…

This is the setup I did for my show at fri-son (Fribourg) in march.
There were 2 obvious parts. For the first part, pretty much improvised, I used the 2 channels on the left and made drones with the guitar, distortion and loop pedals. The second channel has a granulator delay.

I’ll rather talk about the 2nd part (kinda noisy zombie-influenced abstract hip-hop) which you can download by the way:
www.furibond.com/sounds/tokoloten_-_live_@_frison_part2.mp3

4 channels:
- beats (midi) : main inst/effects : Battery 3 + Livecut + Ohmicide (or Frohmage)
- bass (midi) : Automat (VST synth) + Saturator
- sounds, instrumental stuff, percussions, field recordings (audio)
- sounds (audio)

Send : Reverb
Master : Beat repeat + Crazy ivan

I write midi sequences in advance but I use two midi effects (random and velocity) which affect the sequences in real-time.
Yellow clips are empty, their labels remind me I have to change the tempo or switch on an effect.
I organize clips by color (green, blue, red, a color for each track). The label sometimes correspond to a preset. I’m using midi controllers but if there are two many parameters to change I prefer using presets I’ve saved.
I do not necessarily play clips in the planned order, I could decide to go back to a previous clip that would anyway sound different because I changed some effects’ parameters.

Some remarks :
I switched from Live 5 to Live 7 but I haven’t yet used the Rack feature which could be very useful.
I’m using a 3-year old Powerbook that can’t run all instruments and effects at the same time. Battery + Ohmicide take more than 50% of my CPU and I’m only using half of Ohmicide’s distortion channels, otherwise it’d just kill my laptop. So during a set I have to switch on/off instruments and effects, and I remove channels as soon as I don’t need them anymore… That’s not very convenient.

f*ck, this new mb is dumb as sh*t!!!! i was totally ready to drop 3gs on the slim, but after watching the release, what a p.o.s.! funny how they said they didn’t compromise on features, but let’s see…
no expresscard slot- and i just bought all those damn cards! and expandability would have been much better over usb.
no internal drive (well maybe i can live without it)
no 128gb- i gotta admit 64 is pretty amazing for 1/8" drive, but still, that’s a downgrade from my current lappy. and running off an ipod drive sounds like an f’n joke.
no firewire- f*ck!!!!! this thing should be placed under the macbook in the line up
no removable battery- well i guess i never did buy an extra one for my 17, 15, 3400, lombart, but still.
no internal ethernet- so after you get all those extra adapters, are you really saving space/weight???

i don’t know why they compared it to the sony t series, which completely blows it away. not forgetting to mention that that laptop has been around for years. can we please have a real 13.3" mbp?

How To Make Your Laptop Battery Live Longer

How To Make Your Laptop Battery Live Longer

Laptop battery  like most people–eventually and inevitably, they die. And like people, they don’t obey Moore’s Law–You can’t expect next year’s batteries to last twice as long as this year’s. Battery technology may improve a bit over time (after all, there’s plenty of financial incentive for better batteries), but, while interesting possibilities may pop up, don’t expect major battery breakthroughs in the near future.

Here’s how to keep your laptop battery working for as long as possible.

Don’t Run It Down to Empty
Squeezing every drop of juice out of a lithium ion battery (the type used in today’s laptops) strains and weakens it. Doing this once or twice won’t kill the battery, but the cumulative effect of frequently emptying your battery will shorten its lifespan.

Keep It Cool
Heat breaks down the battery, and reduces its overall life.

When you use your laptop, make sure the vents are unblocked. Never work with the laptop on pillows or cushions. If possible, put it on a raised stand that allows for plenty of airflow.

Give It a Rest
If you’re going to be working exclusively on AC power for a week or more, remove the battery first.

Otherwise, you’ll be wearing out the battery–constantly charging and discharging it–at a time when you don’t need to use it at all. You’re also heating it up (see “Keep It Cool,” above).

With luck and proper care, your battery will still be useful when you’re looking for a new laptop.

Longer Life Between Charges
Myth: Adding RAM saves battery life.
True, more RAM means less hard drive access, and the hard drive uses a lot of electricity. But RAM uses electricity as well, and unless you’re doing a lot of multitasking (not a good idea when you’re on battery power), more RAM won’t reduce hard drive use.

The tips above should lengthen the time before you need to replace your laptop’s battery. But on a daily basis, we’re far more concerned with another type of battery life: how long we can keep our laptop running without AC power. You may know most of the following tips already, but it never hurts to refresh (or recharge) your memory.

Dim your screen: Your laptop’s backlight requires a lot of juice. Keep it as dim as you can comfortably read it.
Shut off unneeded hardware: Turn off your Bluetooth, and if you’re not using the internet, turn off your Wi-Fi receiver, as well. Don’t use an external mouse or other device. And muting the PC’s sound system not only saves power, it avoids annoying everyone else in the café.
Avoid multitasking: Run as few programs as you can get away with. If possible, stick to the one application (word processor, browser, or whatever) you’re currently using, plus your antivirus and firewall in the background.

And if you’re not on the internet, you don’t need those two.
Avoid multimedia: Save chores like photo editing and watching old Daily Show videos for when you have AC power. And if you must listen to music, use your iPod (or similar device).
Know when to sleep and when to hibernate: You need to think about when you want to save power by sending your laptop into Standby or Sleep mode, and when you want to hibernate it.

Tips -(1)Long Live Your Laptop Battery!

 

Laptop batteries are like people–eventually and necessarily, they die. And alike people, they do not obey Moore’s Law–You can not expect the following year’s batteries to last twice as long as this year’s. Batteries engineering science might improve a bit over time (after all, there’s plenty of financial incentive for better battery), just, when interesting possibilities might pop up, do not expect major battery breakthroughs in the near future.

Though your battery will finally be die, right care your battery can put off the necessary. Here’s how to keep your laptop batteries working for as long as possible. With lucky, it could last until you need to replace that aging notebook computer (maybe with a laptop computer having a longer battery life).

I have also enclosed more tips on keeping the battery going longer between charges, so you can keep longer without AC power.

Don’t Run It Down to Empty

Squeezing every drop of juice out of a lithium ion battery (the type applied in nowadays laptop computer*) strains and breaks them. Doing these once or twice will not kill the battery, but the cumulative result of often discharging your battery will shorten its lifetime.

(On that point actually an exception to this rule–a circumstance where you had better run down the battery all the way. I will get to that later.)

The good news: You probably can not run down the battery, anyway–at least not without going to a lot of trouble to do so. Almost modern laptop computer* are designed to close down before the battery is empty.

In fact, Vista and Windows 7 go with a setting for just this purpose. To check it, click Start, type power, and choose Power selections. Click any one of the Change plan settings links, then the modify advanced power settings link. In the resulting dialog box, scroll down to and expand the Battery selection. Then expand Critical battery level. The setting will probably be about 5 percent, which is a good place to leave it.

XP has no such native setting, although your laptop computer might have a vendor-supplied tool that does the same job. Myth:  You should never recharge your batteries all the time.

There’s considerable controversy on this point, and in researching these article I interviewed experts . Just I have go down on the side of recharging all the way. The advantages of leaving home with a fully-charged battery–you can use your personal computer longer without AC power–are worth the slight risk of doing damage.
Keep It Cool

Heat can break the battery, and cut its overall life.

While you use your laptop computer,please be sure the vents are unblocked. Never work with the laptop computer on pillows or cushions. If possible, place it on a raised stand that allows for plenty of airflow.

As well, clean the vents every so often with a can of compressed air. You can buy this for a few dollars at any computer store. Be sure to follow the directions on the can, and do it only when the laptop is off.

Give It a Rest

If you will be working exclusively on AC power for a week or more, please move out the batteries first.

Otherwise, you are going to be wearing out the battery–constantly charging and discharging it–at a time when you do not want to use it at all. You’re also heating it up (see “Keep It Cool,” above).

You do not want it too empty while you take it out. An unused battery loses power over time, and you do not need all the power to drain away, so remove it when it’s at least half-charged. Never remove the battery while the computer is on, or even in standby or sleep mode; doing so will crash your system and possibly damage your hardware. Even inserting a battery into a running laptop can damage the system. So only remove or reinsert the battery when the laptop is completely off or hibernating. If you’ve never removed your laptop’s battery and don’t know how, check your documentation. (If you don’t have it, you can probably find it online.) The instructions generally involve turning the laptop upside-down and holding down a button while you slide out the battery. Myth: Refrigerate your battery. Some people recommend you store it in the refrigerator, inside a plastic bag. While you should keep a battery cool, the last thing you want is a wet battery, and condensation is a real danger in the fridge. Instead, store it in a dry place at room temperature. A filing cabinet works fine. You don’t want the battery to go too long without exercise or let it empty out entirely. If you go without the battery for more than two months, put it in the PC and use it for a few hours, then remove it again. Also, before you take the laptop on the road, reinsert the battery and let it charge for a few hours before unplugging the machine. Allow the battery time to get a full charge before you remove the AC power.
