Ableton is enabling me to do a bunch of amazing stuff I wish I'd been able to do for a long time now. Like All the modulation, customizing effects racks and macro controls, etc. There are a few frustrating things here and there, like why is there no "No Triplet" button available in the arpeggiator? Many oversights like these will probably delay me from paying for the more advanced versions since I'm on such a tight budget. But I'm really super glad I'm using Ableton finally.
Yes. Ableton is as good as the multitude of well-respected electronic musicians would suggest. I could tell this even with the most limited version, Lite notwithstanding. I do wish I could have more scenes for performing, but other than that, great live tool.
Bought this since I'm on a budget and am saving up for a newer computer anyway. Despite its limitations, you can still do quite a bit. Honestly it did take some getting used coming from the demo version of the suite version but that's about it, oh yeah, and I hate the fact that the eq 8 is not included but oh well I will just have to deal with it for the time being.
