That’s a different look, isn’t it?
I’ve been sitting on Ableton Live for years without giving it much use. I think its organic workflow is brilliant, but often times, I get lost between its modes, and end up going back to FLStudio for efficiency.
A couple of hours were spent running through the foundations on Lynda, and a subsequent four putting the track together. Slowly. There’s still a lot I want to add, but I’ve got to figure out how to do it first.
To get the best feel for what Live had to offer, I limited myself to its stock instruments and plugins. Early brainstorming and automation went wonderfully, but with arrangement, things came to a crawl. I’m not sure if Live has a unified, pattern-based arrangement system, but if it does, I really need to find it.
