Point taken!

You'll need at least 1 french-made vst to be able to produce anything

+1...and it is a kind of dumb question although there's no shortage of those around here (including from myself). Seriously, our laptops pack more power and audio quality than most of the best musicians ot the 20th century had available, it still comes down to your ears and your way of hearing music.

Anybody who sniffs at you like they are superior for using another technological solution to an artistic project is missing the point.

word. It's like "well it's the only thing that will allow me to record a sound I make with a synth and play it back periodically in a track.." -erhm... no. In fact, that kind of 'tude should have a tax on it or something. Say the words "protools is the only way to work with any kind of audio" and immediately 10k$ will be deducted from your already over-inflated bank account.

if someones got talent in producing music they will be able to use any of the industry standard software, take cars for example, if you have a mercedes but you cant drive it you will probably lose to a brilliant driver in a ford, when you race...

Furthermore, half of them were written, mixed, mastered and sent as mp3 to the client directly from a coffee shop with internet connection, I'm not even kidding.

So yeah, if there's any skepticism about Live being as "pro" as any other DAW, well think again. It's just a tool to record/arrange music.
So, if music is what you make, then music is what you will hear, no matter what you use.
ditto...see my signature. i've had national spots run where the editor just used the rough mp3 i sent via email.

I never realized this was a urban (or rural) legend, explains why they all live each day like it's their last, nothing to be anxious about.

Also explains why grandpa Tom Jones is covered in knickers by the end of each show
