Dude you got a good feel and some good ideas, but the productions and execution could be tightened up quite a bit - shorten some ideas and make sure that everything keeps hitting - - A lot of this music is about the "sound" and your tonal quality just isn't there - It's not just your problem - I fee...

First Disco 77 and now Cardboard!

Yo, It seems that the fine people at Ableton just can't help killing off my favourite skins... I lost Disco 77 a couple of versions ago and now Cardboard is gone! What the hell??? I don't like the other skins and now Live doesn't even feel like itself to me. Why would they possibly take out a skin? ...

I would get it only if you want use it just as a lo-fi drum machine - it is good for this but not for synth sounds - also don't pay more than $100

One thing that kills the "feel" if not the groove is running a track of vintage (ex funk) music at one tempo throughout - I noticed in my sets that some of these songs just seemed to lose their edge when beatmatched at one continuous tempo - most of this music actually speeds up towards the climax o...

I highly reccomend OWC (macsales.com) which is a specialist mac retailer that guarantees the ram you buy from them will be hassle free - I also bought a 250 gig / 5400 rpm drive for my macbook, which works great. I wouldn't worry too much about replacing the harddrive as apple has made it very easy ...

Well, from using my ears (outrageous I know...) I clearly agree that Live 7 sounds much better - it is obvious even on my Event 20/20 Bas's with a motu Ultralite sound card. I sure it will be even more obvious on higher-end pro setups. There is really a BIG difference (like when I upgraded the 828 m...

Groove Quantize


Myself, I alwasys thought this was was Live was all about - making a groove out of disparate parts - for me this would be an essential tool - know I have to do things with REX files in reason (using the copy & paste timing functions), but it really should be in Live.

It's perfectly easy to get pirated software for Mac if that's your goal - I think that the perception that PC's have all the cracks if just plain untrue - mac users are thieves too!

I didn't ask a stupid question, YOU were just to stupid to realize what I was asking - would a regular Live user really not understand the main tempo box - and don't use "it's the internet so people naturally insult each other" defense - it's just dicks like you who make this lame ass shit a reality...
