Well put, Willyum -- as your posts tend to be. As in most forums, I intend to whine, cheerlead, discuss, and debate in whatever measure seems best. :-) My infrequent whining will be tempered with understanding that my situation isn't everyone's; my cheerleading will be enthusiastic, but done knowing...

I don't know about problems with USB but I ended up picking the M-Audio Firewire 410 because its features fit my wants, the price was right, and Firewire is a bit faster than USB. 1 MIDI in, 1 MIDI out, 2 headphone jacks w/ separate colume controls, two analog inputs (switchable between front, phone...

Cameleon 5000 group buy - price down to $119 so far

Sorry if this is too off topic -- if it's contrary to forum rules, please delete the post; I understand -- but at least one other participant in the thread mentioned wanting Cameleon, a superb VST for use with Live, so: The Logic User Group's quantity deal on the Cameleon 5000 morphing additive synt...

Hmm... I can't find where you asked any questions. No threads in the beta forum were started by "abraxxas." Link, please? I'd like to know more specifics about the troubles you're experiencing.

It's understandable that you're frustrated. But remember, beta testing is all about finding and reporting bugs, so they can be eliminated. It's tempting to consider it a preview of things to come, but that's just a fringe benefit (and you can never be sure which features will make the final cut). Th...

Certainly persevere with the built-ins, but try alternatives too. No sense tossing out an effect that might provide a capability or sonic texture you can't get otherwise. That said, I do tend to favor fake-physical interfaces. Ableton's extremely simplified look is great, and I admire its functional...

Yay, wish lists -- what fun! To heck with budgets, exercising the imagination doesn't cost. Let's see... First off, I own Tassman 3 and Reaktor 4 -- both astounding; must update the former soon. The Tassman isn't nearly as comprehensive as Reaktor, but its physical modelling modules are rich and ext...

I have Reaktor 4, not Session, but I'll try to help. This is going to be wild guesswork; sorry about that. :-) What effects are you using? I'll try the same and we can compare what happens. In the meantime, try this -- bring up Live and Session. Position them so you can see Live's tempo box and Sess...

Re: history...!

OP brings up valid points (though in an entirely inappropriate forum), then commits this: Read between the lines of your own media, or go get an education. It could be that some of us have done. :-) Might be worth considering. And get out of music. Oh, dear -- please, you don't want to make me laugh...

As it happens, I'm a new user and so looked this up just last night. Click "License Questions" at the bottom of the left-side nav bar on this page:

Ableton's policy strikes me as fair to both sides, and their FAQ explains it well. :-)

V4 looks good so far - the only abends being ... Hey OvalGuy, you wouldn't happen to work with Novell Networks, would you? :) No, just an old mainframe programmer. :-D Ever set an AM radio near the CPU box to pick up stray RF?
