Re: Probably buying a DAW soon… please advise!
I have used ableton for many years, since it was in version 4. I love it and will never ever switch. Definitely take advantage of the 30 day trial, you get all functions and everything. Live’s built in instruments are somewhat powerful, but they take some time to get the right sound. the presets are not so inspiring. but thats why you download vsts and buy one or two big synths.
I know people say one progam is good for this, one is good for that, but I haven’t found a better program than live for many diverse applications. I have used Live for my own EDM productions as well as tracking and recording bands, and running sound for an open-mic night. I haven’t even tapped the potential for LIVE performance in a stage or sanctuary setting.
I hope this helps!
