I've been playing with it for a while and I think it's really solid. Anybody tried gigging with it, or doing ad-lib jam stuff? The more I play with it, the more I realise that a whole set could easily be run off a laptop.

Cool.

1) Ableton does midi, as far as being controllable by it, so you can use a keyboard/knobs to do all your tweaking (my style)

2) Actually, I saw a guy rip shit up hardcore style on a laptop and ableton... Eight Frozen Modules, from Austin, relocated to LA... hard, dirty Squarepusher shit...amazing.... you just gotta have some energy.

it does rewire too - actualy they are doing a deal on it (m-audio.co.uk) they are flogging deals on ableton + reason + a choice of either of their controller keyboards in two different rpiced packages (determined by choice of keyboard)

yes, you can sculpt with a paint brush.

sure, it's better to make your setup work rather than complain what it can't do...BUT it's also good to have an idea of what you want to do and then find a way to do it.

for example, i want to run my hardware live instead of just using softsynths and such. i want to use my midi gear 'cause i think it sounds better.

there is always a point where you have to accept the limitations of your setup. i'm using an mmt8 for god sakes...it's arciac and extreemly limited...but it does run my midi gear and that's what i want.

i also do find twiddling a laptop to be a bit boring to watch. if i could use my midi gear and do it effectivly though, i think i would seriosly consider using a laptop. that would add a demention to the performance that i think is lacking from just laptop with fader performers.

don't get me wrong, i'm not opposed to new technology. i've got a g4 and all that in the studio...but for the live performance...i just have a different idea in mind.

Thats fine.
I use it with external gear controlling it, along with live guitar, a vocalist, outboard fx, and a couple of hardware synths.

*shrug*

Not for everyone. You aren't going to find a midi sequencer, in a mac or a pc at least, thats as stable though... at least at this point in time.

Ableton Live is f-ing nice; Someone kept talking about doing a live set with just a dissorted palette or loops - definitely doable. The native plugins actually sound decent and are light on the CPU. When I throw Reason or Nuendo loops at it, they always lock. I can't wait to take it live.

The sound through its algorithims is something like MP3 quality, though. Big drawback. On an average (loud and lo-fi) club system you probably wouldn't know; hi-fi purists would be sick.

I wanna Live battle someone!

I wanted a proper demo at the recent trade show, but they demonstrator didnt seem to know the product and I gave up waiting for him to get it together. Shame.
