I too would like to know exactly how to DJ with Live, especially being new to recording & DJing software.

I just installed Live 3.0.2 demo on OS X Jag and listened to the demo...nice, but how the heck to get something like that created is like rocket science to me right now.

I read the DJ tutorial twice and honestly, it didn't help me one bit to know how to start with the basics in using Live as DJ software. Screenshots and exact steps on completely setting up to do basic beatmixing would've been excellent.

I've tried Traktor and it's "ok" yet very straightforward to use for DJing unlike Live. However, Live has many other capabilities I've read that Traktor doesn't which is why I'm considering it.

Anyone else willing to write a better, step-by-step DJing tut? At this point, I'll even pay for a class on DJing with this software!

Are you running the demo? It has a 30 minute lifespan...
