When a) I figure out how to put a picture in the post and I get my *studio* area set up and gear on the desk I'll take a photo or two to show the layout. Maybe even sneak the guitar stand in there ;-)

I just downloaded 'Dreamscapes' - thanks for making your music available for free download. I admit, I'm not generally a fan of dark ambient, but your music avoids whatever it is that I don't like about it. Maybe 'Dreamscapes' will help me define what I don't like about the subgenre by showing me what's good about it. I'm only a few tracks in right now, but I like it.
Don't fear drums Mike...let your Soul come over to the Darkside...
I just bought Ableton Live, it's the first DAW I've spent money on and the first one that I've felt I understand. I've been playing for a long time but only recently decided to get into digital recording. Ableton Live has made the move to digital very easy. I'm only just starting to get familiar with the feature set, so I can't comment there, but the built in help and the ease of use are far beyond Live's competitors in my opinion. Cubase and Pro Tools made me feel that DAWs were a club that I didn't belong to; Live has welcomed me in and is giving me a tour...
I got a great deal on the software as well. I installed Live Lite 6 from a friend's trial disc, upgraded to the full version of Live 6 for $269 directly from the Ableton web site, and, at least as of a week ago, the full version of Live 7 is included as well.
I've heard that "Available Light" is also an awesome loop library... = J.
I don't know why you'd want to render out directly to mp3. Even if you want to post a compressed version of your track somewhere, wouldn't you want to keep an archive of an uncompressed version? If so, then render to wav or aif and then convert that (just takes a few seconds) to mp3, in a separate application.
Oh, and I didn't upgrade to version 7. I don't usually take each upgrade that's offered by software vendors. I understand they want to do regular upgrades every year or so, to keep the cash rolling in, but I rarely feel that every single version upgrade is worth the price. I think I upgraded Live from version 1 to version 4 to version 6, and I'll wait to see what future versions have in store, before I buy another upgrade.
I love Ableton Live so much that I wish I could have its love child.
You're quite welcome...in fact, I am thinking about putting at least maybe a couple of more of my albums up for free download:)..
