Ableton Live 7
No installation problems.
The manual is in French of course.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I work on a Sony Vaio 2.4 ghz with a hard drive of 7200 t and 1 GB of RAM.
My sound card is a RME Multiface.

OVERALL OPINION

I Live user since version 4 on the same computer now.
I use it in Live and in studio.
In fact I wanted to compare the 5 Live Live 7 I just bought recently.
I have done this in order SHIFT to edit multiple tracks simultaneously.
The catches were made on 5 Live.
First disappointment when imported Live 7 projects (thirty tracks per track) it's hard to read. Stall and saturated drive which was not the case on 5 Live.
It took a juggling catch to carry voice.
However editing tracks simultaneously is simple even if it tends to distort the sound (choose the time-stretching algorithm).

Live off sometimes for no reason which could not before.
I feel that Live is more complex loses stability.
Ableton now offers packages of instruments that lights are strong freindly and make creating even faster which is still the big thing about Live.

In summary Live is a tool for creating extremely powerful and the stage for the production, however pure he currently shows some weaknesses compared to other programs that are not competitors, since Live is essentially a different tool.
I say this all the more easily the album I just realized that was completely recorded and mixed on Live Pro Tools HD and frankly the Pro Tools editing is something else ...

2 Giga of ram

Latency varies with the memory buffer, 148 ms 8 ms.
- This software + hardware configuration is stable?
Yes, some small bugs with few plug dplorer but otherwise it works pretty well.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
for 15 days, knowing qu'auparavent I worked for a long time on live 6.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Plus: is ergonomics, the interface is beautiful is very well screwed, everything is very easy accessible we really any port in a hand click the insersion of plugs can be simple (a bibliotque simple slip of the track)
And in addition to being a great squenceur to prod it's also a great tool for mixing and live performances.
The least: the management of the video.
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Yes, I have worked on long before you know Live Cubase, Cubase a fairly standard interface for a squenceur manipulations but requires heavier and more bugs as well as live.
- How do you report qualitprix?
Excellent, and CHRE least much better than most other squenceurs
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, without hesitation and I advise everyone to drop their Cubase, Nuendo, Logic and other for so squenceur.
Protools one could make me change my mind.

Ableton Live 7
Easy installation, very clear manual and lessons in French, there really was not complaining.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Pc intel 3.2 gig 1.5 gig of ram 2 hard drives.
ca train very quickly that there is some good plug-ins, a quad core would not be the luxury ...

Rectif of 28/03/08: Actually I had an overheating problem due to the CPU fan completely blocked. Now I peus run between 20 and 25 high quality plugins (Arturia style, waves ...).

OVERALL OPINION

Great ergonomics, superb sound (Of course, if you do not remove the algorithm of time stretch the sound will be a ch ** r).
I tried cubase and logic, for me the choice is quickly made, the sound is good but the interface is much better live with.

This app is a blessing to many people. It can serve as main sequencer without any problem.
