I think Ableton will be fine as long as they improve the controllability of their program, with things such as, 1. Better softsynth input monitoring (Most other programs you don't have the arm tracks to hear what you are playing. A lot of other programs have an auto input monitoring function that au...

1/16384th notes not good enough for ya? ;) I believe you seek the adaptive grid and the zoom function I like in Sonar how you can use any time resolution by typing in tick values. They have presets for the commonly used ones like sixteenths, 32nds, and eigth notes, but by using tick values you can ...

I have an Se 1X and use it for basslines a good bit of time. It also has nice smooth leads.

The ability to set default new clip lengths. I tend to make eight or four bar loops, sometimes two bar loops, hardly never a one bar loop. Thi...

I'm new to live and would like to get up and running. Are there instructional DVD's/ CD's or online training, etc. I read about one at Berclee School of Music but that was $1200 for an online course (way over my budget ) I'm relatively new to Live too and have some questions on using it. I am basic...

New Live user questions

In the session view is there a way to predefine pattern lengths. I am having a hard time loop recording in Live because afterwards I always...
