Mac installation is very simple as usual
On Pc since version 8 is a bit more problematic because part of the installation program is located in the Data directory or a directory is hidden by default, so to find this directory it should first display hidden folders, which is a little restrictive.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

With a typical configuration: / Windows PC 8/I7 3 Ghz / 32 Giga RAM Live turns necessarily perfectly. Moreover it turns on smaller configuration without major problems.
A simple laptop with its integrated basic and asio4all driver card and you can use it, of course in this case we can not either rotate 300 plug-ins, 50 audio clips and 70 instruments simultaneously, however that little bit more and the less with a single drum rack can already compose a headline electro.

OVERALL OPINION

I use Live since its first release, I also use Reason, Pro-tools, Cubase, Logic.
Among all these software Live is the most intuitive and ergonomic software in many areas
- The MIDI composition
- The Sampling
- The Slicing
- The creation of modular instruments (notably with the addition of elements MAX For LIVE)
- Creating Virtual Rack
- The use of Plug-ins
- The outbreak of MIDI and audio
- MIDI control of all types of controllers
- Adaptation of audio loops at any tempo
Whatever happens Live is now the most suitable to play on stage software.

At the moment the main drawback is the size options displays Instruments, Live Effects Rack and which are sometimes too small compared to the monstrous possibilities they have, nevertheless Ableton has advanced its soft steadily and opportunities today are 100 X more important than it was ten years.
In terms of value for price Live 9.1 Ableton Push Partner controller is an ideal investment for all persons wishing to begin or continue in the field of computer music composition, whether to record Audio, Audio loops arrangement, MIDI composition, synthesis and many other tools.
