Anyone that’s familiar with me, or the DAW Feature Chart, probably thinks that I dislike Ableton Live.
You’d be right. I try to be as fair as possible in the DAW Feature Chart, but I personally have had a history of issues with Live.
I toured with Ableton Live (5-8) and was invested heavily in their products and third-party products, and over and over and over and over and over I was either let down by the stability, or met resistance when trying to work with large projects or ‘large tasks’.
I will be using Live 10.1(beta and release) for at least the next 45 days. I will be using it for personal music creation and indulging my own curiosities. I will try to be as fair as possible, and I strongly encourage anyone reading to speak up if you think I’ve made a mistake or have represented the product unfairly.
I hope to make this an interesting series. I’m going into this with fewer positive expectations than I’ve ever had.
