    It's a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) which is capable of producing music and DJing... http://www.ableton.com/ (official website) ... http://forum.ableton.com/ (official forum) ... http://www.abletonlivedj.com/forum/ (learn how to dj w/ ableton) ... I believe you have to register at abletonlivedj to view the forum.

    it's a daw with emphasis on live performance. the biggest thing that distinguishes it from others is the session view which gives you a different way of thinking about things. the learning curve is probably steeper than the more traditional cubase/logic/sonar sort of thing but generally speaking once people figure it out they never leave. other fun things involved with live are max4live, a incredibly useful but nerdy combination of max/msp and live, and the serato/ableton bridge, which allows you to use live within ssl in a somewhat disappointingly un-inspiring fashion.

    It also allows DJ's to be super lazy by warp marking their tracks and perform 4 minute long mixes with all the credit and none of the skill lol

    If that's all it takes to eclipse your skills, then clearly your skills were never as significant as you think.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I've met just way too many people who take too much joy in trying to proclaim themselves as some sort of vanguard and that any new style is inferior.
    I don't get dj snobs when its like "dude instrumentalists say you aren't a real musician because you play other peoples music, and now you're trying to say a digi dj ain't a real musician because he isn't using technics?" Ha fucking retarded.
