Re: Forget Live controllers: Touchscreen

I program and operate Lighting consoles for a living, and have been using touchscreens for over 10 years..... they are good in a programming settings, like in the studio, BUT in a live performance setting, you can't focus your eyes at one screen all the time, you need to be able to grab it and look ...

Re: MOUSE for ableton? or do u use TRACKBALL or GRAPHICS TABLET?

I program lighting desks, and have been using trackballs every since, Im a big fan of them, generally, the heavier the ball (think centipede), the better.... I have recommended them for years, but most people never give them a chance. They are especially handy if you don't have much desk space to us...

Re: Apple iPad. Meh.

I'm an Apple freak, and I think it will flop..... All I can see is a bigger piece of glass to break, already broke the iphone glass, and my hand fits AROUND that, this is just an accident waiting to happen..... nice try though. Have your loved ones recently required you to wear a helmet and safety ...

Re: Pure Live vs. Reason and Live

Thanks for all the replies... I will concentrate on Ableton first since I don't currently have a copy of Reason, my goal is to make a live set (to play live, that is), so manipulate-ability is more important than ultimate sound quality. 8O

Pure Live vs. Reason and Live

I am looking at stepping up and getting some education on Ableton, I have never used the built-in instruments in the program and figures I would just make loops with Reason and import.... Is there advantages in using these vs. Reason? All thoughts, comments, and bashings are welcome.

Re: Job Posting - Cirque du Soleil LOVE, Las Vegas, NV

I'm a stagehand in vegas were I have lived for 28 years now, I can say, that this job is a great one and if I was qualified, I would take it myself..... I'm the lighting type though.... Living here is not bad at all, just stay away from the gambling and you will be fine!!

Re: 5400 or 7200 rpm Macbook Pro HD upgrade?

I installed a 7200/320 myself, it gets hot like usual but it doesn't seem to run any hotter... or any faster with Live.... I am an avid photographer and run Aperture pretty hard, runs noticeably faster with that program... step by step instructions can be found at ifixit.com, judge for yourself if y...
