Start with the lessons that come with Live built in, that'll get you set up and making some beats.

What is cubase and pro logic and what would they be used for?


Let me give u some background

I love music and I'm no dj I actually suck compard to most everyone but willing to learn. I started out with 2 1200's and was looking recently on the web for something to control my ram songs when I came across the vestax vci 300 which ran serato itch and while looking at that I found out about the bridge which led me to ableton. After doing some research I discovered the awsomeness of ableton so I have been browsing the web about midi controllers and recently purchase suite 8 and mkp25 along with the apc 40. I am very much a newb but have been watching the tutorials. Where do yall get all ur loops from besides what comes in live? Is it worth it to buy 14 CDs worth of loops on CDs from eBay for 15$? I love all the music I have listened to on the link your music you all are very talented and hopefull I can get to ur level some day. How do u pull out just the vocals from a song so that u can mix them? What artist/songs do you all recommend to start mixing into/on in live? Thank u very much
