currently I'm using Moog Animoog on the iPad with my Linnstrument, but I'm eagerly awaiting any sign from Ableton about MPE being on the horizon...don't want to switch to another DAW, but the wait has been long already... Come on Ableton, you can do it
reverb.com mistakenly had a page posted with a 50% off upgrade to Bitwig Studio from 8-Track.
Bummed it was a mistake, but also hopeful that Ableton get the message at some point that a live performance DAW
like Live should be able to natively use live performance tools like MPE.
I think I've struggled with Live because I always figured it was going to be the #1 solution to live performance, and it is, but it's not 100%, my other DAW Digital Performer is still widely used in the industry for backing tracks and syncing lighting etc. in shows like Beyonce, Madonna, Roger Waters etc. etc. I think it's a much better solution for smaller bands, but the tools for larger events would have to be integrated with some serious Max knowledge, it's not an out of the box a solution for these things. The audience for Live from what I can tell is geared towards 30 somethings who work in tech, with a decent knowledge of computers who appreciate the UX, and want to jam out a little after work. That's the target audience in their ads for sure.
I think at the very least it would be fantastic to have MPE native without a script and 16 tracks grouped etc.
