DopperFx's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" excellent!"

Ableton Live 8
easy installation and trouble-free
easy configuration for a software pro ...
not encounter a conflict, the opposite is true (plug, machines, controllers ...)
in addition to the manual there are lessons and also a detailed help is visible from the application ...

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have a macbook pro i7 2.6GHz + 8GB RAM, but I used it on a macbook core 2duo 2Ghz + 2GB of ram ... no problems!
it is the only soft music (pro) for the treatment really live then the coup it is much more stable and smooth than others ... especially for small config. In addition I use it along with my software from scratch.

there were some bugs at first but since version 8.2.2 it is much better, it is in the 8.2.6 ...
max live for, the bridge and all the add-on works well
no crashes at home.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 5 years, I have used protools, cubase and logic test, but I sold my machines to use only live. Able to compose, play live and mix with a single soft it is convenient ...

What I like most is:
use an infinite number of plug directly calculated
deal of intuitive
can use any controller
dedicated controllers (APC40, launchpad ...)
noon and mix audio like
bridge: since I use serato live scrtatch
to me one day to max msp simplified version ...
trigger video and sync to the post ...
easily edit automations
use any sound card ...

what I like least:
live is not running in 64 bit on mac
the video mode that is readable arrangement
details of the display, dedicated controllers ...

the dwarf's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ableton Live 8
Trouble free installation on Mac or PC.
The packs are a little long to load especially when not in use.
Configuration and handling very simple, it's Live.
It has never done anything easy.
No incompatibility!
The manual is super clear. You can see search the index without all that can each button instantly.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Mac mini core 2 duo 2010. Snow Leopard 10.6
Presonus FireStudio Mobile
Toshiba Core 2 Duo too. WXP sp3
ESI quatafire 610
Everything is stable

OVERALL OPINION

2 years.
All tried and all Sony Steinberg.
Live has completely changed my way of composing and editing.
It's really much more than a loop-based sequencer.
I love the effects of live, the quality of stretching, which allows direct mapping
really control everything (live and any VST instrument or effect).
And all this for an unbeatable price.
It changes everything for something direct and simple and about 300 euros,
what more.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

my equipment; 2011 macbook pro 2 core i7, 6
impec works: D

OVERALL OPINION

Using live from version 6
this is my main sequencer and audio editor
I use a lot of VST and making little concern and usually not related to live.
+ +
usable components at ease as well as in live (session mode / innovative audio clips)
the warp
the many tools
Max4live
VST support
any audio format

-
??
binding only for use with the native (video format that I like slightly)
suequenceur mode arrangement sometimes sucks to zoom in and out of force


I will remake that choice without pb, besides, I raque for updates every time (which will quickly his last time ....)

This software + hardware is stable? yes

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it? 4 years
Have you tried many other models before buying it? tracker, Fruityloops, Ableton Live.
What is so special that you like most and least?
Plus: Session Mode
The least: the internal mix bus.

Personally, I would say it was a good start, but not really listening to the needs of users put together, it starts to become a bit cumbersome and outdated, inflexible on certain points, especially the estuaries ergonomic (127 parameters Simultaneous per instance of plug ins. no multi screen, real-latency not available, some intuitive mapping twelve o'clock and not editable envelopes twelve o'clock management very basic, no sysex, no remapping DC, has long load when many of these effects are used . no changes to preset effects, can become a gas plant, etc ...)

How would you rate the quality / price? not great.
With experience, you do again this choice? yes

I've a dream's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Trs good DAW"

Ableton Live 8
Easy to install, easy config, the only problem I encountered silent as encryption entries do Ableton
not correspond with that of my motu.
manual explicitly.

The only BMOL is missing some intuitiva on the mono & Stereo for the caliber of Ableton Live.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Mac Pro 2x2, 4 quad, MOTU 828 MKII.
Marche nickel.
The warp is magical.

OVERALL OPINION

Trs good DAW.

roolioSP6's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ableton Live 8
Installation was done without any problems!
It should on the other hand, if you have nothing to do there, disconnect from the internet because it eats a lot of CPU power and it can paddle on small capacity Pross!

The manual is very comprehensive! But for my part I look closely at the tutorials on youtube and I bought the DVD of Elephorm which is a good resource for advice!

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I'm PC 2Ghz CPU HP dv7 dual core 2 duo.
Ableton Live 8 runs perfectly with this config!
The config is stable if I disconnect the internet that eats a lot of CPU capacity.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one month!

I had already used FL studio but am not invested more than that in the composition at the time!

It is a comprehensive software, the effects are very well made, the composition of the clips very easy (at the same time I do nothing complex, I started) but otherwise I am very satisfied with my purchase!
See you on the dancefloor !!!!!
