If you make music, Ableton Live will change your world.
Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, Hot Chip, Digitalism, Deadmau5 and Pete Townsend all share in the love of Ableton Live. We can’t stress enough to our musical comrades and any stranger that wants to talk music, “Ableton. Ableton. ABLETON!” Sorry, we get excited.
Ableton eliminated the misery of bouncing a .wav out of here, into there, then back outta there into here. Recording this, chopping it up, bouncing out, importing it here. We’ll spare you the monotony. Creating electronic music has been a chore for some time, but then came that glorious treasure of audio production bliss…. Ableton Live.
Digitalism described it as “fluid” and that may well be the perfect word. You can sequence, sample, automate, record, perform, tweak, arrange, edit, create, remix, master and the list goes on. It’s the love child of Fruity Loops, Hammerhead (bet you don’t know that one), Cubase, ProTools, Logic, Nuendo, Akai’s MPCs, Yamaha’s RS2000 and so on.
