I'll admit to being sceptical about Ableton Live's weird (to me) workflow and crazy-bland looks, but you just can't deny the sound you can get out of it straight out of the box.

This video was the one that turned me around completely - if you're thinking about getting Ableton and you haven't seen this video yet, check it out to see just what it's capable of:



If you have seen the video, I apologise, couldn't find it in a search of the forum so thought I'd chuck it up :D

WAT?

this is supposed to make you want to buy it? a bunch of super-irritating sounds strung together as incoherently as possible?

People tend to overuse the "๐Ÿ˜‚" emoji, myself included. But I literally laughed until I had tears in my eyes, this was so good. It just keeps going! I thought it was real until the second spectral effect.

This. Funnier than 10 Netflix comedy specials combined and boiled down to 1 minute of hilarity.

It's basically an accurate whistle-stop tour of me messing around in DAWs at any given moment.

Yeah, whilst it is a slightly ridiculous spoof if does somewhat illustrate the difference between all those slick demos and reality. These demos always show young cool people who seem to be able to generate number one records in about 20 seconds with one finger on a keyboard and two mouse clicks.

And in the meantime, us klutzs can't figure out how to load up a loop.

It's the official Live 10 announcement video - it's just the soundtrack that's been replaced.
