wow. . .

Ableton Live 5 + Axiom 25 = my new best friend. Now I just need to figure out if there is a way to rig it up so that I can trigger the noise loops I want to use into the pads in their own zone, and can be fucking around with synths etc live with the knobs and the keys. . . hmmmm

I've heard smashing things about Ableton, though I have not yet had a chance to try it out.

What do you think of the Axiom 25? Did you pick it up new or used? I dearly need a new controller.

Ableton drops my jaw. The potential there is astounding. The copy I'm using it an **evaluation** copy. And I'm using it to learn.

I bought the Axiom new, it's fairly sturdy and I like the feel of it, even if it is made with plastic. It's got three zones you can program instruments in lots of knobs and buttons. It also came with a copy of live lite 5.0 which can be upgraded to the full version of live 5 for $250.00 I'm thinking I will probably wait until Live 6 comes out to do the upgrade of the live lite thoguh.

You know...I've heard a lot of really good things about Ableton 5 but I'm just not that big a fan. I find any of the newer Cuebase sets to be more intuative and versatile. That being said, Ableton is wonderful with the real-time capability but as a sequencer, nope.

well, I'm exploring it, I like what I see so far, but I'm barely scratching the surface. . . the previous sequencing I've done been mostly fruity loops so it's a bit of a change and I can't really compare it to anything but that. But it's a lot easier to re-wire fruity into Live and use fruity as your percussion sequencer than attempt to do all the sequencing in live.
