Computer Music also had a Live 5 magazine special issue last yer, with a black cover and Trackteam Live Fill on it. The one I want is the new one about Live 6.
I tried that pdf site but the files are corrupted.

Hi Fraq & the other aussies.....
FYI: I finished the international version as featured on this post on Live 6. I checked back at the newsagent for the Oz version. They definitely have different content. The Oz version from what I could tell (i just browsed through it & didn't buy it) was geared around Live 5 with tutorials: getting started, making a track, making a mash up, simpler, impulse & operator + a few other things.

Which I would recommend? Well if you were starting out & wanting to get your head around Live then the local release would be the one to go with. However if you have been using Live for awhile & are into Live 6 then get the international version as it's all geared around 6 with some great tips.

Cheers

i bought this issue and i got pretty disappointed.
most things they are covering are really simple basics, the tips and tricks that are more towards "advanced" users are imo still pretty basic.

infact, i was very disappointed.
the cd is a bonus though, other then that its a waste of cash imo.

yepper for seppers............

It's a waste (er, except for the cd.......which I don't know about, but I'll gladly take others word for it......)

It's like this.....

"Hi, this is joe duck-mount, I'd like to introduce you to how to buy, activate and look at the graphics of live 6".........

It's all over central cali..........it actually needs to go.

btw, since "we" are so behind........how is the addictive drums review?

I picked one up last week at a B&N store. The arranging tutorial was a joke.

<sarcasm>
"Welcome to the arranging tutorial! Here we go!

1-Open up a song
2-Arrange your song
3-You're done!"

</sarcasm>

They literally wrote a paragraph saying that to arrange your song, you have to "arrange your song", and didn't say a single word about methods, techniques, construction, pattern alternating etc.

Maybe next time they'll write a tutorial on how to complete the tutorial.

It really should be called 'The Beginners Guide To Live' - most of the useful or 'advanced' tutorials have been lifted off this forum!

They did lift the tips from the forum, but that was the point - they even credited the posters. You guys collectively come up with better tips than the non-forum public, so the point of that feature was to share some of these tips with someone who would be more inclined to read through a magazine instead of a forum.

Keep in mind the medium these people are working within - a 'special' issue has to cover all the bases, from beginner to advanced. In other words, it is simply impossible to please every single Live-using reader in a magazine format. Just look at the various opinions in this thread...

I'm not saying it was a good or bad special, but it is possible to please users of differing knowledge - instead of trying to create one special that covers all users, create two or three that individually cover beginners, moderate and advanced users - at the very least target certain levels of users then at least you can decide whether it is for you or not. Having a moderate user buy a 'special' for a few pages of advanced tips that can be found on here for free is a little unfair.
