Ableton Live 8 SuitePublished on 03/23/13 at 06:01
Sonic Academy's Ableton 8 Suite is compatible with different working platforms like Windows Xp , Vista , 7 and MAC.

The manual that is incorporated with the software is well detailed covering a lot of subjects regarding the working process.

The general setup of the program is quite straight forward , it's easy and fast to manage it.

The typical functions are well placed , you get a decent browser in the left upper corner that can give you some direction.

Sonic Academy's Ableton 8 Suite is compatible with different working platforms like Windows Xp , Vista , 7 and MAC.

The general setup of the program is quite straight forward , it's easy and fast to manage it.

The typical functions are well placed , you get a decent browser in the left upper corner that can give you some direction.



SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The software works very good , the program is stable , everything is well designed.

I'm getting very good results while using Ableton , my composition level improved , my sound design improved , everything is great.

I've been using Ableton Live 8 for about 2 years.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about Ableton is the great interface , the session and arrangement view , the vst compatibility and complex automation lines.
Another thing to mention is the advanced warping and live stretching , the full vst support , the build-in effects and sounds are also top notch.

I also like the Operator that comes with Suite , that powerful synth machine can emulate every known sound to man.

Something that's quite unique in Ableton , is the freeze feature , that way you can create audio from midi data very fast which would help with your cpu resources.

My opinion about the value for the price is good , this DAW is one of the leader in the music industry , you can buy it for 500 $.

Precision and quality of the sound is 10/10 , some producers say that the Ableton's EQ erase some quality from the frequency range , in my experience , that's not the case.

I've tried several DAW , Ableton got a special place in my heart as being the most useful and pleasant one.

Knowing what I know, I would buy Ableton again.

Ableton Live 8 SuitePublished on 02/24/13 at 11:49
There weren't any kind of compatibility issues , the program works on any platform like Windows XP, Windows Seven or a MAC OS.
The book provided by the program was quite clear and you get a quite detailed and powerful understanding of the program.
General configuration and setup is easy and it doesn't require any additional tasks.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The software works correctly , fast and pro.
Regarding the functions and the performances , I must mention that all the functions and features are working on a high level , and Ableton's functions are well thought and made by Sonic Academy.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about it beside the pro design and that powerful white design , the instruments provided with the program are great , the sampler , the simpler and of course the Operator , which is a very powerful machine where you can emulate a whole specter of sounds starting from bass to drums.

I also do enjoy the way the program works , in two separate ways , either session view or arrangement view , both of them has their own purpose and use.
Another great thing about Ableton are the multi effects racks , which are very handy and high quality.

My opinion about the value of the price is great , this product included a lot of features and plugins , it has vst support , it's worth the money without a doubt.

Precision and quality of the sound is pretty perfect , the only times where Ableton lacks perfection is when it cracks , which isn't very often but still , beside that , quality and precision is 10/10.

I've tried several Daw's , Ableton has its own ways and features which makes one of the most used Daw's out there.

Knowing what I know , I would get Ableton Suite that comes to the music world with a wide variety of plugins , features and effects.

"upgrade"

Ableton Live 8 SuitePublished on 11/13/12 at 23:26
Ableton Live 8.2 is the most recent version of Ableton Live. I have been using Ableton for years and I always upgrade when they come out with a new one. You can purchase this brand new if you are not coming from a previous version for 400 bucks which is a steal for everything you are getting with it. You will have a full production studio and workstation at your finger tips. Ableton live 8.2. is great for live performances too.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Setting it up was very quick on my Windows Vista PC. It only took a few minutes but there are not many changes from the previous version. The drivers are very stable and they always have been with Ableton Live. They update the drivers......

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Setting it up was very quick on my Windows Vista PC. It only took a few minutes but there are not many changes from the previous version. The drivers are very stable and they always have been with Ableton Live. They update the drivers often and make sure they do what they can to keep this software running perfectly for all users on any computer Mac or PC.

OVERALL OPINION

The sound you get out of Ableton 8.2 is fully up to you. If you are using it for studio purposes then you will love the sequencer and how easy it is to work with other plug ins and software from other providers via rewire. Abelton 8.2 runs great as a host or in another DAW. There are so many uses for it, and if you are new to using it you will have everything you need to get your ideas out fast.
Most of the plug ins and sounds that come with it are not very good though. You will still need to invest some money into some good quality VST plug ins and some good drum packs. All of the sounds that come with Ableton 8.2 are very basic most like they are in any other programs stock sounds. I am happy that I have upgraded Ableton to 8.2 and will continue to upgrade when they come out with newer versions. This version is not the beta version, it is on the test version either.

"It has some great improvements"

Ableton Live 8 SuitePublished on 10/30/12 at 22:33
Ableton Suite 8 is a powerful DAW suite that will take your workflow to the next level. They have made some major upgrades from previous versions of Ableton and they have also upgraded the price! I don’t know why they took the price up so high but it is now 800 dollars for this program. I remember purchasing other version of Ableton in the years past for way less than that.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I do not own Ableton 8 but I do still get to use it a lot. The interface is great, everything is laid out good and easy to find. There are not a lot of sub menu’s to have to navigate through to find what you are looking for. One thing that I like about Ableton that a lot of other programs......

There are not a lot of sub menu’s to have to navigate through to find what you are looking for. One thing that I like about Ableton that a lot of other programs don’t offer is how easy it is to use your drums or samples. They can be easily loaded up in Ableton 8 and in previous versions of Ableton.

OVERALL OPINION

Ableton 8 does come with some newer effects than I expected. The Vocoder that comes with it is very good, it is almost as good as going out and purchasing an expensive Vocoder from Evo or Antares.
Ableton 8 can be used on your PC or your Mac computer, it is very versatile. Even if you start a project on a PC you can save the project file and open that same file up on a Mac quickly. You will need to have a newer system though to run Ableton 8. If you are using an XP operating system you could have some issues and it could be really slow when loading plug ins and effects. I would not want to use Ableton 8 on anything under Windows Vista. Also make sure you have at least 2 GB of RAM or it will run really slow no matter what operating system your PC has.
