  • yay! i got ableton.

    now what the **************** do i do?
    Alternative music doesn't exist. Shoegazer music has been dead since 1991. The only shoegaze music we ever did is maybe "The Zenith" from "Silver" -- even that wasn't current when it came out. Now, I hear bands that are doing what I tried to do four years ago -- stuff that wasn't current even at that time. I just want to be a decent songwriter, not a follower. - Jason Martin, Starflyer 59, 1997

    Use the tutorial built into it. You might allready know how to do everything but it'll help you orient yourself to the software.

      Get a drum program like ezdrummer or superior drummer. Make a drum track which is just kick, snare, hi hat, whatever else you use for a basic drum beat. Hit "fold" so now those are the only bars shown, save it in the clip view as your "starter" beat from which you can build off. Now make that your default project. Saves a lot of time,

        Spend a lot of time learning it. Theres so many unique things it can do. When I got it I learned the basics and jumped in. Now I can hardly ever motivate myself to learn anymore of it. I'm sure I'm missing out on a lot.



        Hugbot Im going to try your advice. I would love to hear more tips from Ableton users on the forum.

            man, i'm quite good with computers, but when i picked up a Novation sl25 mk2 midi keyboard, it came with ableton. ableton itself wasn't too too complicated, but trying to get it to work right with the keyboard and the Automap software it came with (that is supposed to make everything easy and work right off the bat) was way too much for me to figure out fully. so i gave up. and just use it as a plain midi keyboard into garageband or B4 organ ****************
