Is still figuring out live as a composers tool. So i did run into a new question.
How often does the melodic part, of a score go beyond 4 bars.
What i mean is like the violin melodic parts and that kind.

Hey guys,

This is Daniel James (the guy rambling on in those videos) and Live can absolutely be used for no electronic music. The main reason I use it is because the way I write music I tend to load in quite alot of audio files, and then mess with them to create so unique sounds (see the second video for my bowed guitar percussion) and the warping engine it totally invaluable to me.

Also another underrated part of Live is the awesome build in effects! Ping Pong delay is almost worth the price of Live itself haha
