ableton

Post by paparazzi » Tue Dec 03, 2019 6:15 am

Hi folks,
Suddenly, I realized that i can't live without playing a musical instrument :bananaguitar: I was playing guitar for 5 years, but i don't like it very much. My parents made me attend guitar classes, so guitar is good, but still not an instrument of whole my life. I've been wanting to play ableton for a while. The problem is that i don't savvy at them at all. For me all abletons are similar, because the only experience i have with them is watching youtube, and dreaming i'll play like him one day. What ableton do you use? Realy need your help!

Pap, your line of interrogation doesn’t make any sense. What is your question?

Why are you writing from a newly created account? Did you lock yourself out of your old one?

If you don’t mind my asking; What is your native language if not English? We might be able to point you to assistance in another language that would make dialog more fluid and ease the transport of ideas.

I use a Maschine controller and old Akai APC40.

I'm one of the moderators here and I'm trying to figure out your intent and what is going on.

You have answered in the first person to both accounts. Your IP addresses match up and I think that you must be using VPN or something. Please define what it is that you want here. We are welcoming of pretty much all tolerant persons but you seem to be evasive with what you want and why you are using two accounts.

I forgot the password of the previous one and created new, sorry for that. I didn't try to hide smth from your eyes. I answered from the second acc to ya, with no hidden meaning.

Okay, fine. We'll go with that. Thank you for answering directly.

Are you looking for a musical controller for Ableton? If so, look at the Push2.

Push 2 is a good option, but it's expensive. Is there a $500 difference between push 2 and akai, for instance? As i said i'm total newbie here :D
I found a guide for ableton and i like the first and the second models from here:
https://primesound.org/best-ableton-controllers/
They both cost 399$ for each and both well appreciated by amazon customers, if choosing one of them, which one would you buy for yourself?
For me, the only difference is that the second one ableton has stupid name :D

I have had both. Yes, there is a very large difference. 500 worth of difference? Sure.

What is the main difference between them for you? And If you were just starting to play Ableton, which one would you buy?

안녕하세요 GeakPeak

Actually, if you are just starting with Ableton it might be better not to be in a rush to a controller just yet. You can do everything using a mouse and keyboard. Once you start to understand how Ableton works and how you would like to use it, you can look at the features of various controllers and decide what works for you.

I've been using Ableton Live for about 15 years I think and I have used a controller on a few occasions but I've almost always used it without a controller.
