Hi peeps, I'm finally getting my first serrious PC, this thing...http://www.hoojum.com/html/product_cubitp4.htm - and I really want to set up my own home studio. I did an interview with the cool as **** <b>Matt Garrison</b> yesterday - I may well see if I can run it here (like my Wooten piece) but he was raving about Ableton Live and the new 4.0 version due out soon. I really like the look of this, as compared to say Cubase or any of the other studio packages, I think the fact that Live is designed for working with mainly 'live' performances (i.e. not a lot of computer generated loops etc) this would be the package for me - plus it's a bit cheaper than Cubase, and there are a **** load of plug-ins and drum machine add ons available - I have read the FAQ on this but I just wondered if anyone here could second Matt's recomendation or suggest something better? There's also a deal to get Live 3.0 now for $350, with the upgrade to 4.0 only costing an extra $50 - which is cool for me - as that's about the top of my budget for this stuff... your advice is appreciated Cheers Mike Mod Edit:- Please fully mask all swear words.
