Help ! Kinda lost with plugins - mac user

Post by Zangiefstyle » Thu Oct 22, 2009 11:27 am

Hi,
I have Ableton Live 7 Le, and I'm using it on my mac.
I did a research on the forum but I really want to have tips from someone, since I'm quite new with Ableton.

I want to know where I can find plugins for my version, and more specifically if they are some keyboards/pianos plugins available. I would really like to have a huge librairy of different sounds of this kind, since I can't rewire Reason to Live with my version, and thus can't use the NN-XT, Subtractor, and NN19 Reason sounds.

With the LE version, I don't have that much sounds available (6 strings sounds, 6 synth sounds... with this simpler module) and it's pretty friustrating. I'm thinking about upgrading to Live 8 to be able to rewire, because I tried ths demo and that it was perfect, but in the meantime, aquiring new sounds would be great.
Thanks for your help guys,
Zangi.

Man any VST should work on LE...I think.

anyway I like to just read the forum and grab things people talk about

NI Komplete is a winner but its so dollars!

Start a sample library to expand your Simpler

You can do a lot with that

hope this helps

Most of the good plugins (the ones you'd actually want to use) cost money. Probably even less money than it would cost you to upgrade from LE to the full version (or the suite for that matter).

My tip, though, would be to read through some of the threads on the board. Particularly the easy-to-find sticky threads up at the top of the page, where plugins and add-ons are covered really well.
