I like Live 8

Post by ollyb303 » Sun Feb 12, 2012 10:50 am

Live 8 is a perfectly good piece of software and I enjoy making music with it. I've had 2 releases this year already and 5 more scheduled on vinyl, cd and digital, all made with Live 8. In no way has my software of choice held me back, rather inspired me. I'm not waiting for a new version.

Just saying.

this parallel is too much to ignore>

if you fail to support, or in any way complain about Live 8, you're killing African children and will be reported to Bob Geldof.

Mostly agree. But a 64 bit version would be useful. Not being able to use all the memory is Live's biggest limitation at the moment, IMO.

I love Live 8. I experience very few crashes and it runs quite smooth on my system.

I also don't think Live inherently has "a sound" to it. Sound design seems to be one of it's specialties, and at the end of the day I think what you get out of it is up to you.

You can do just about anything with this software (50 different ways).

There will be a new version eventually. (I just hope they don't call it Live 9, simply because I'm tired of all the whining about it.)

Vinyl releases! Congrats OllyB, I can't get anything on vinyl at the mo'

I too am very happy with 8. 3 house EPs and 1 DnB EP signed and ready to drop in the next 3 months. Ive got loads of work done and really haven't felt hindered in the process in anyway. Still I know some people have had troubles...I must just be lucky :)

Thank you and congratulations! Thanks for putting the whole, "where's Live 9" thing into perspective. True, new features are inspiring but it's not like Live 8 is useless. And if you can't make music with Live 8, than you probably can't make music, period.

Perhaps, the $250+ for the Live 9 update would be better spent on piano, guitar, or drum lessons. Or at least a down payment on a week at Dubspot. Seriously!

I may not make better music, but I would make it faster, if I could record automation to session, as well as 64bit cutting the need to freeze tracks on heavy sample bank drum kits.

just sayin.
