Ableton meets its match?

Post by Liam » Fri Jan 09, 2009 4:30 pm

I tried to watch the entire video but the cringe factor is too much. This probably cost more than Ableton's yearly income.

I tried Songsmith and didn't really care for it. Then one morning my wife switched my gourmet coffee with Mojavi Songsmith and it was WON DER FUL!

Gee Microsoft, you sure make the world real swell!
