    On the case right now.. I think it's a great opportunity to see the inner workings of Ableton without DL'ing a demo copy - which has limitations..

    If, like me, you mostly use vst's for your sounds, rather than the "on-board" one's, then you should be set to go..

    I'll report back once I've had a chance to look around the new DAW :)

    This Lite version of Ableton live 8,came bundled with my Akai mpd26.It's a solid program..Myself,being used to working with Magix and Studio One,it took me a few times round to figure it all out,but its simple enough to figure out the routing for plugins and controllers.My biggest complaint,and the reason I dont really use it it because,the Lite version has its limitations,the biggest one being that it limits you to only 8 tracks.idk,maybe its just the version I have,but other than that,its a good freebie for Ableton fans.

    free ableton live (even tho its lite)?!?!? what is this world commin to?
    long time ableton user. some words of encouragement for everyone tryin to come to grips with the beast that is live: take it in stride. at first, its about as complicated as trying to get your money back from mf global, but once you get the hang of it its a breeze. take plenty of time to get to know where everything is and, literally, read the manual. it comes in like 7 languages so no excuses.

    @ poisonheart

    no talk of torrent anything here at looperman or you can find yourself booted off. No copy written material can be used here without permission either. Shan runs a tight ship.

    @looperman aww...too bad...i was hoping i could just get some more minutes to upload music...i mean, i can't afford to make upgrades and stuff, that's why i got excited for these free stuff now... anyway, i'm glad that i even saw that Ableton got free even for a few weeks... i'll start making music now (legimatelly :D)

    This is actually really good... people lookin for DAWs best check this out, especially if you are working with instruments and just need a recording/arranging DAW.

    Downloading as I type, once I install it I will post again after I have had a play, and with someone like me who can struggle with new music software you will get a good idea of what it's like for novice users.

    I have purchased several pieces of equipment and many came with Ableton Live Lite. After installing the program, and spending a few days watching tutorials, I never was able to record anything on Ableton.

    For me, this one has way too steep of a learning curve. I like my DAW's to be pretty much plug and play - by that I mean start the computer, start the DAW, plug in my USB interface (Digitech, Zoom, M-Audio, etc.), and hit record. Ableton might work that way for some, but it didn't work that way for me. I literally was never able to record a thing, even after following the directions (and I hate to follow directions).

    I'm not trying to denigrate the program, I just think it is way too complicated for my needs. I did make a nice wind chime out of all of those Ableton CD's though and they look cool spinning in the desert winds :)

    Quick report from me. I have had Ableton download for just shy of 24 hours and have already managed to record & edit a short piece using the packaged sounds & templates. I'm now looking to add vsti's and other stuff but I will say that after struggling at first things kinda started falling in place with the use of the interface. So far my humble judgement is that I may use this to create riffs & loops but end up sorting them properly in my usual DAW of choice .

    I downloaded the trial version a few years ago and challenged myself to read the manual and better comprehend this awesome DAW. I downloaded the free copy and played around and find it very fascinating. Looking forward to creating a track using this and will post it on here soon.
