Re: PC USERS: What DAW are you using in addition to Live?

Reaper always felt like a giant cluttered mess. Yes by default its a mess, but actually it can be VERY minimal and organized if you want. You can rename, delete, add and reorganize every item in menu and context menu, remove elements from GUI etc etc...Yes its not for everyone, but it can be anythi...

Re: Does anyone ever use Live's built-in synths?

Just about presets: I was using Ableton synth presets. I liked the idea of keeping everything simple and in-house. But then I heard Sylenth and was amazed.

Don't use "Save" button, just drag'n'drop your rack directly to your location in browser.
