"ABLETON LIVE AND ZZOUNDS!!!"
Overall: 10 out of 10 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First let me just say that I now own my complete dream rig thanks to zZounds. I am a worship pastor with a strict budget at home with kids and I would've never been able to afford to have what I have now if it wasn't for zZounds. I will forever be a loyal customer!!! As for Ableton...WOW! WOW and some more WOW's!!! I have been using digital daws since 1999. I was always a Sony Acid user until just a few months ago. I switched over to a Mac and realized I had to find a way to obtain another DAW software that was applicable. I kept hearing about Ableton and how it's THE SOFTWARE FOR LIVE USE!!! I have enjoyed every single aspect of this software. It allows me to flow freely during a live worship service and implement any possible last minute changes that normally aren't planned out during a service. It is now the heart and soul of my rig and I love its flexibility and the way it just makes a live set sound so rich and full. I am able to pre-record some of my electric guitar riffs on Ableton and if for whatever reason we need a key change, it changes the key of my recordings and keep it sounding authentic! AMAZING!!! Yes it's a little bit of a steap price, but i'm telling you that if you just want to be ready in case you are short in musicians or someone called in at the last second, this is the way to go. It's an INVESTMENT you will not regret!!! For home use, I love remixing some songs and being able to change the key of the original song using the Complex Pro and read more adding some other stuff to it to give it more beef. Just an awesome awesome software. Best purchase of my entire rig!!!
