Ableton Live 7 LE : Neme6Tem's user review

4

Trouble free installation.
I'm running Mac OSX 10.5.
Simple configuration.
The bundle is quite comprehensive enough and the manual (the lessons are always anyway).

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Macbook Intel Dual Core 2.1 Ghz, 2GB of Ram.
Runs smoothly.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 year.

Ableton is so simple that it works and live there for nothing better.

The only problem on this version is the clamping of MIDI messages to external instruments.
You can use midi controllers to control Live and virtual instruments in Live. But you can not use synthesizers or drum machines (to use the hardware to be the full version). It's really the most frustrating part of this release.

Before I tried Acid Music 5.

For 150 euros, and some is not so bad (the full version costs about 500 euros).
It's a little crippled (2 virtual instruments, 8 scenes, Midi Out), but the price is a bit normal.

I would do if the choice had to start again, but I advise everyone to do the upgrade later.
