Re: How Long Did it Take?

Wrapping my head around Session view and Arrange view and how they relate to each other was the confusing part for me at first. That was Live 6, almost 10 years ago. Man, time flies.

Re: What kind of Macbook for Ableton live 10

My 2012 rMBP is still a work horse. With a bit of planning it can handle anything I do on stage.

Re: Ableton 10 is obsolet!

I just shake my head when people post that Live 10 is not a major update. The Wavetable Synth is maybe one of the least important addition, yet everyone seems to concentrate on this one thing. For me, it is the deluge of small tweaks that make this an exciting update. Things likes the "Sub to Mono" ...

Re: iZotope Ozone – is it worth the money?

It is worth the money if you need it. However, it is actually a luxury plug. I could probably get similar results with Ableton's built in plugins and freeware plugins if I had too and I wasn't so lazy. Ozone sounds great and is a time saver. You can get a mix slamming for the car or Soundcloud fast....

Re: Freeze Groups

I don't use groups while mixing because of this. I route to a bus audio track. Group bounce would be awesome.

Re: No clipping while recording - Compressor?

The best limiter is working the mic. It takes practice.

Re: Compose a melody on chords

Just your fingers around on your instrument until you hear it. Just remember that less is more with melody. Simple is what gets stuck in peoples heads.

Re: Share your beginners mistakes.

Always boosting EQ to shape a sound rather than ever trying to subtract to make a sound better. When I tried "addition by subtraction" my sound improved.
