How long have u used Ableton Live?

Post by roach808 » Tue Dec 19, 2006 1:14 am

Just curious on what version of live most ppl around here got started/hooked on.

I started using live back on version 1.5. After that, ive been a live junkie ever since.

in 2002 or so a bunch of us at a post production house gathered around the monitor of a colleague to download what i must assume was the first beta / demo version of Live ever..

it blew my mind, but i didn't have an immediate practical use for the software and abstained using it in full force until late 2003/early 2004 when a shift towards live performance became an imperative issue for my music.

I had the Lite version as of version 2. At that time, it was mostly just looping, so I got away from it completely. I recently started messing with versions 5 and 6, also Lite. It now has enough DAW recording functionality to make it a contender for my needs.

Of course, the downside is that I like Live for it's user friendliness for audio/midi recording in the arranger view. And as a "standard" DAW, it lacks quite a few features that I could get with Logic Express, and spend less money to boot!

So I think I'll be sticking with the Lite 6 for awhile, and then look for a used version of Live 5.

Ver 3.

About a month after I bought Sonar 5 Studio and was getting into it, I bought an extra copy from a coworker who mis-ordered a copy. I never launched Sonar or Acid or used my SP808 sampler again.

I had a demo version of 2 about 3 yrs. ago but I never used it 'cause I was told it was just for DJs, and well... nevermind. Then I bought an X-session and gave 2 Lite a try. I've been hooked ever since.

Still a n00b, started at the end of Live 5 and did the upgrade deal to 6. So a few months now I suppose, which is more than it feels like! :-0

Got live lite 4, and realised that i was so easy to get my initial thoughts down, so switched from using reason, still havent upgraded to six yet as i feel i havent unlocked the full potential in 5, so wont until i am happy with that.
