I love Ableton live with all my heart. Anyone else here use it ? At the moment im rolling with version 7. I love the creative non stop working flow. Me and a friend were just jamming non stop into live for an hour or so, recording new bits and dropping effects all in real time without stopping the music once, I urge anyone to try Ableton, Ive tried a few of the best music production tools and ableton is just a different level to everything else. Theres loads of videos on the Ableton site to get started adn a trial and stuff ...go go go

I have had 7 for a bit, haven't gotten to play with it enough. I keep feeling like I am going to have to sit down and really learn some stuff to do it quality, or is it really as user friendly as it seems, and you can just jump right in?

The tutorial is really easy and doesn't take that long to go through. Plus i think there are separate parts of the tutorial if you only want to learn specific things.

I mean after the tutorial, how easy is it to get around and get shit done? Thats what I have been avoiding, is sitting down and doing the tutorial, afraid its going to take all day, and I just haven't had a day to devote to it yet. I have gotten on it and like fucked with stuff myself for like 20 minutes here and there for the last few weeks, but thats it.

It's great for what it is. It won't replace Nuendo for me, though.

If easy interface is what you're after, then ableton is the program for you. Once you've made a couple of finished tracks with it you'll be quite adept at using it, and it has enough dept to keep you interested and produce excellent results

Id say so yeah, you can get good results with it, its compatible with other audio units/plug-ins, you can rewire it with reason etc, and when you take your music on the road you can use it live too (if you so wish).

Its not the industry standard like pro tools or whatever but I personally cant tell the difference between recordings made in either program when listening back to them on CD.

And a bonus that ive experienced is that its much more stable than Cubase in terms of crashing and losing half of your work etc.

If I were you Id download several demos of different programs and see which interface you like best, then have a look at the specs for all the programs and see what you get for your money, and if the program justifys spending the extra dollar. depending on what you are wishing to record & get out of the software you may get just as good results from sound forge, audacity, garageband, cubase, logic, fruity loops etc

or an old 4 track.
