How to launch Live with third-party plug-ins disabled
For troubleshooting purposes, it can be helpful to launch Live without scanning your installed third-party plug-ins.
To start Live without scanning plug-ins, press and hold [ALT]/[OPTION] on your computer keyboard while launching the application. Hold these keys until Live has fully opened, and the splash pane has closed.
Launching Live with plug-ins scanning disabled is especially useful when:
- Live is crashing on launch
- a specific Live Set is crashing
- testing whether plug-ins are causing performance issues
If disabling plug-ins scanning allows you to open a problematic Set, you can then delete, replace or adjust the plug-ins in the Set to prevent further issues, while plug-ins are disabled.
The next time you restart Live, plug-ins scanning will be re-enabled.
