Re: wich should i get pro tools 10 or ableton live 8?

These are two different beast. There are many differences but in a nutshell Pro Tools is INCREDIBLE for editing audio, recording and mixing. Nothing comes close. Ableton is INCREDIBLE for composition, production workflow, loops manipulation and creativity, nothing comes close. Truth is you can accom...

Re: Another reason why Ableton is NOT a pro DAW

It's just a matter of what's important to you and your workflow, that's it. If this Ableton doesn't support it and you don't use it then you don't have a problem. I'm pointing out a feature, like many other pro grade missing features (no eucon support, non sample accurate waveforms in the arrange vi...

Re: Another reason why Ableton is NOT a pro DAW

anyone making the bucks wouldn't be stopped by this. :roll: edit the audio externally, import it back in. Agreed, there is no excuse to be stopped and always a workaround for anything but let's not sit here and make excuses for Ableton. We support the crap out of this company and features like Samp...

Another reason why Ableton is NOT a pro DAW

"Detected Host: Live Spectral Repair is not supported in this host. Please not that Spectral Repair is very different from most other audio plug-ins. It first needs to Capture audio from the host, then you can Repair the audio, and finally you must Commit your edits back to the host. Unfortunately y...

An open API for plugin manufactures to make "Live versions" of their plugins. 5. Performance improvements during large mixing and production sessions. i....

Re: Avid Artist Mix

Hate to break it to you but this WILL NOT work with Live. Do yourself a favor and return it immediately without opening the box. Artist Mix are based on the Eucon Protocol which Ableton does not support. It's been a huge issue for the longest time and shows no signs of being solved. I purchased one ...

Re: ableton sound engine and new monolake album

Name 5 top engineers and their software of choice. What would an engineer do for music made using softsynths and sampled audio that couldn't be done by the composer-producer? I don't understand the question, are you being sarcastic? Look at what Bruce Swedian did for Michael Jackson, what Serban ha...

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

What's interesting about all of this is that I've never heard Ableton actually deny all the criticism about having inferior sound quality. The best they've done is say that the difference is inaudible, the best anyone has done is say the you can't tell. It's hard to not question that. Most consumers...

Re: finally... BITWIG STUDIO! beta soon...

These guys looks like great programers. Not so great GUI designers, this looks absolutely horrible. Talk about an uninspiring visual! You'd think after 20 plus years of DAW design they would at least consider all the advances that have been made in that respect.

Re: Katy Perry Mixer - "Ableton sounded terrible" (SoundonSound)

Timing, latency, sample rate conversion, summing and overall accuracy. How the programs handles all of those things in a real mix session is what adds up to be the "sound quality." Initially yes, ALL DAWS SOUND THE SAME but all programs DO NOT perform at the same level or value the same things. So a...
