Perfect if you produce EDM, but if you're a songwriter, it's unusable. Logic is ten times better at half the price. I'd rather turn down work on film scores if I had to use this DAW.

Ableton 10 public beta is released. Although Ableton 9 is one of the best DAW ever made to unleash your creativity. Ableton 10 doesn't really add that much new. It has some improvements and nice new delay plugins but that's it. No new innovative features or better mastering abilities and no better arrangement editor. IMO it is a mist change to put it in next gear. Now it just cruises at same speed. But I will upgrade for sure. It's is still the best DAW for my needs.

Ableton is so impressive. Switched from a PC recently and could no longer use FL Studio, which turned out to be such a beautiful change in my life. Outstanding!

Brilliant DAW that surpasses any other by offering huge creativity features. It is so versatile and easy to grab, only you are the limitation of doing great things with it. By far the best DAW with by far the best music making community !

Absolutely the best and most creative DAW every made. The work flow enables and invites every musician to be creative with high standard quality. All offered plugins are insanely useful and give great control of what you want to achieve. One thing I think is 'troublesome ' is mastering with Live. I still think Logic ProX has the upper hand for doing this. Still, Ableton Live is a must have tool for modern musicians. Essential for sure ! Note worthy: it works great with UAD-2 plugins. With the thunderbolt version it has about zero latency which is truly amazing. Something you cannot say about Reaper or Cubase. Both have problems with latency with UAD hardware.

Although i have a MacUpdate paid account the MacUpdate install it NOW is not working for me. And i do have Ableton Live version 9.1.6 installed but just wanted to test the services of MacUpdate with no luck. OH, by the way still give Ableton Live a 5 star rating although it is not my favorite DAW in my tool box o f DAW's i own/use.
