    Default Ableton Live 8 buy or not to buy? Hmmm tuff one here.

    I'm thinking about purchasing Ableton Live 8.

    Pros and cons are running through my head.

    Pros are I could be teaching myself something that I find fun and more useful then the 5 hours of video games I put in a night.

    Cons are if I end up sucking ass at producing then basically i'd lose the 400.00 I put to own the software. I like producing but basically I just watch youtube videos and copy exactly what they are doing and it's beginner stuff. Like using the "impulse feature". Wondering if I should even try this out, considering I can't even make a solid mix that people enjoy.

    Sweet thanks for the helpful information guys.

    I don't think i'll try to get the cracked Ableton Live version, I would rather support the company then to do that.

    Best thing that ever happened to me technology wise was my Xbox 360 dying and me getting a copy of Ableton Live upgrade from lite. I have never looked back and been happier. Production is a passion and an education. If you are passionate about producing then you will stick with it until you get the results you want. Do it, get Live.

    They have an intro version for cheap, but like mentioned before, get Live 8 now and upgrade to 9 for free.

    Either way, do it, I love Ableton Live.

    You'll also get 25% on ableton 8 live if you check their website (and a free upgrade to ableton live 9, which looks awesome!)
