    ableton live and garageband
    hello! i just bought a tutorial video for ableton live, and im excited. coz, lately i've been reading articles about it., how efective the software-- im sure it's gonna be a good ride for me. i work mostly on garageband., i'm new in this field, and i'm still not familiar with terms or topic or even how to use a software. it's kinda rough for me. but with the tutorial video im expecting to learn more about ableton live and use it with garageband. looking forward and i can't wait! hehehe!! i should've downloaded it instead of getting the dvd, now i have to wait for at least a week. ahh!!! tim

    There's a good section on rewiring Live into garageband at the end of the ableton Live tutorial ... and BTW, you are in luck ... we are releasing the Ableton Live 6 101 tutorials in a few hours, and we are letting all pst purchasers download it, including DVD purchasers. You'll be able to download it soon! Check the Announcements forum in a few hours for details ... :)

    Tim, a MacBook would be great with Ableton or Garageband, and, as far as I know, ProTools. I'm running Live 6 and GarageBand on a 2-year old 12" PowerBook without any problems (as well as an iMac), and the new MacBooks have higher specifications that my PBook. In fact, I'm getting ready for an upgrade any time now! RAM definitely makes a difference to performance - squeeze in as much as you can :-) The main difference with MacBookPros is the graphics performance, and of course screen size...but I take my laptop everywhere, and for me, smaller is better!

    sir martin, thanks for the advice. uhmm,regarding on my problem using ableton -- since i downloaded the uprgaded version of your lesson i am now slowly learning some parts of it. the thing is when i use my built in microphone on ableton for recording it works,i mean i can put effects,mix it..etc.. but when i plug my axiom or blackbox-- it doesn't work. before i can see waveforms, but now there's none. i guess your right it's hard for you and me to solve this problem through text. i'm thinking now my last resort would be-- going to guitar center,ask someone who can help me in person (where they can install again the software and do the connections) i think it's the connection between my axioms,ableton and my mac. hmm,,well i have to work on it. but still im excited to learn ableton.. i can't wait anymore. tim
