Re: Why audio never goes viral

I believe another aspect to keep in mind is that everywhere you go, there is music playing. Nearly every store you might visit, or work at, has music playing all throughout. If you are on the phone with a company and you are put on hold, you are going to hear music. Sitting in a waiting room? You wi...

first live song... dub-something

this is my first song using ableton live. http://soundcloud.com/amillionwinters/this_started_in_winter still needs some sparkle and pizazz to shine it up. <3 live. <3 DIVA. also, aside from obviously whoring my song around, any constructive criticism or advice about the mixing would be great. take c...

Re: Reason 7

i had been using reason pretty much exclusively since version 1.0. i am new to ableton live, but i have fallen in love with it over the last couple of weeks. i sometimes feel like i am cheating on reason, but the session view in live really just works better for the way i tend to write music. i have...

Re: LIne and Mic Input Confusion - HELP PLEASE!

If you open the Audio/Midi Setup application (by default, it is located in the Applacations->Utilities folder) you can create an aggregate device in which you use both your line input and your usb device. Then, in Live you would set your audio input to use the aggregate device you created. I have no...

Re: Live Suite + NI Komplete 8

Operator is as competent as FM8 as FM synth, FM8 has better presets. Prism is unique, I like a lot the pluck sounds out of it, but you can get the free version and get a lot of use out of it. Studio drummer, with suite 9 you will have like 12 gb of drum kits (Studio drums)so I would suggest you try...

Re: Live Suite + NI Komplete 8

One last question: As I said in my first post, I am new to Live. Also, most of my music background is playing guitar/drums/bass with live bands. I've been making music solo with software for more than ten years, but almost exclusively with samplers, not synths. Programming and dialing in on a desire...

Re: Live Suite + NI Komplete 8

Thank you very much for the replies so far! With suite 9 and komplete 8 it will be so much stuff it would be kind of pointless. I agree that it would be overwhelming; there are a number of included items that I will almost certainly never use: Traktor, The Finger, the guitar and bass collection (I h...

Live Suite + NI Komplete 8

Hi, I am new to Ableton Live, and so far I really enjoy it! I am really looking forward to Live 9 Suite + Push. Anyway, I'm looking to expand my library of samples, sounds, and instruments. In that effort, I am considering NI Komplete 8. It is at a discounted price until 26 March, and it is a whole ...
