Ableton Live 7
Ableton Live 7 is a solid software and worked great with my windows vista, which surprised me because vista has the tendency to make programs not work correctly and will bring crashes. I received my Ableton Live 7 for free with a purchase of a few products during a sale through Guitar Center. I wasn’t going to use this software at all because I already use so many softwares. So I decided to try it out and see how it works.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Running it on my laptop which was a dell mid grade laptop , nothing special. It worked great never went down on me or crashed. I had no issues with stability and this program didn’t use too much ram either. Not even when adding a lot of effects on the mixer channel. The program is pretty powerful itself, like I said I was pretty surprised. And with the way it performed on my laptop I started using it more and more for my mobile set up.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall the program that Ableton has come out with is a solid music production software. But unfortunately I really don’t have a need for it. I never took the time to fully get to understand this program because the other programs that I use outshine this by a long shot. I feel like eventually Ableton will catch up to its competitors like Cubase and fl studio. But for right now there is not difference with this program. Nothing Stands out to me, it almost seems like a watered down version of Acid Pro to me. But Ableton Live 7 would be great if it was your first software, but don’t think you are going to get some good sounds, the sounds that come with this are very basic. This program is also a little overpriced for my liking.

Ableton Live 7
Ableton 7 works flawlessly with my Macbook and Presonus firebox setup. 
As for the Manual, I looked through it a few times and found some answers here and there, but I only used it to find answers to questions I knew.  I got some video tutorials online that showed me things in Ableton I might have never known from just fingering thru the Manual.  So over all, I would say its clear, but not really sufficient. 
The general configuration and setup is a little daunting at first.  This is my first installment of Ableton and at first, I didn't have a clue what to do.  The session view was such a new concept for me, but, after plugging around for an hour (before I looked in the manual) I was able to grasp the basic concepts.  So I would say, alone, its not simple if you have never used any ableton's before, but if you poke around for a little bit you will get a good general idea of what to do.  Throw in a tutorial or two and you mind is going to blow!!!  Once I got used to the interface, yes, most all the functions are very accessible.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Yes, it works very good with my Macbook.  No problems.  
I have not had any stability issues with the program yet.  All updates have worked well too. 
Performance??  This thing is effing amazing.  I bought an Boss RC 50 unit 2-3 years ago to get the 1 man band thing going.  It functioned fairly well but had some serious limitations.  Ableton 7 has put my RC 50 to shame, and what I have read about 8 with the looper built in, well, I can't wait.  If you are looking to do the same, this is the software for you.  11 out of 10!!!
I have been using this program for about two months now.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most is the great time stretching ability.  I don't know any hardware/software that is better than Ableton at doing this.  There are a lot more things I love, but I could go on forever.  What I don't like, well, I wish there was an option to setup midi control buttons to operate whatever track is highlighted.  Instead, you have to assign each button to one track, ends up using a lot of buttons.
I got ableton with an artist discount and paid around $250, which was an amazing deal. 
The sound quality sounds great, even when I set the samples way low (for latency issues).  Very happy with the sound.
Ableton 7 was the first I have used and as far as I know, there is no other program that does what Ableton does.
I would make the same choice in a heart beat.  This is essential to any electronic musician or even regular musician who wants an amazing tool to be a one man band.

Ableton Live 7
Abelton Live 7 is amazing. Pretty much the only thing you can say. I love it so much; it makes creating music so much easier thanks to the session view. You can record as many pieces as you want and then play them all together or take parts out, creating things you wouldn’t have ever thought of. With Abelton Live you never lose a musical idea, that’s my favorite part about it. Unlike other major digital audio workstation’s which are super complex to use, so complex that you just end up wasting all your time figuring out how to work the program, Live is super easy, yet super effective. The simple drag and drop approach to put plugins in your tracks makes creating music such a breeze. If you have ever worked with a 4 or 8 track cassette recorder, and you try Live 7, you will feel right at home

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I am using a basic home computer form Dell that cost around $700 and it works perfectly.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using Live 7 for only 2 months, however i have used some form of Live for about a year. My favorite part about Live 7 is how easy it is to make music. It has opened up my creativity so much. I had tried demos of other softwares and found Live 7 to be the best fit for me. I think for the price, Live 7 is unbeatable and if you have the cash, buy it. You will never want to get rid of it, ever.
