I have been working with live 9 trial for close to a month off and on and the trial will end soon.....after much thought and viewing Logic X video demos I feel that there is no future for me with Logic and the way it is heading. It is worth another topic for what Apple is doing to its software so I will not go into it here, anyway my current daw is Logic Pro 9.
Much that Ive discovered using Live 9 is exciting and is a very different way of working, primarily because it seems directed towards clips and samples etc.....certainly the arrange view is similar to the more tradition daws such Logic, Pro tools & Cubase to name a few but the session view seems very stiff where clips, samples and audio need to conform its work flow which is not how I create. I havent given session view a huge amount of time to to be able to uncover its possibilities so that stiffness my just be me.
Max for Live is amazing...Ive downloaded devices and well thats a sonic playground to jump into and get dirty.
I have been an hardware sort of fellow all my musical life, samples really never figured into my creative process other than some sample based technologies such as wavetable synthesis and the occasional rompler.
I guess my question is for those who made the transition from the tradition linear time line daw to Live....how was the journey?
