Live users, is this also happening to you?

Post by Paranoid » Mon Sep 26, 2005 6:28 pm

I have been spreading around some of my demo mixes to my local community and lately I have been getting the calls from local vinyl DJ's I know saying "oh man your mixes are killer, I need you to show me how to use that Ableton thing". As if its something I can show them in a couple hours- they think its a toy or something. That is like going up to a producer and saying "hey man, show me how to do that!" Absurd.

I don't fault them for trying but do people not get that Live is a pro audio tool and like any other pro audio tool takes time and work to know how to use??!! I went to audio engineering school to know what I know about production, that and years of tinkering..its not much differant with Live. What would be a nice way to say "buy the program and read the manual"? ha.

Point them at the FREE demo, the FREE manual, and the FREE forum.

To be fair it wouldn't take long to show someone how to string together a dj set in Ableton.

i agree.... there is a huge difference in creating a dj-mix with live and creating a track, imho..
