    Default Making a chill out set. Ableton live intro 8 or Full traktor 2.6.2

    Hi I wish to make a chill out set, but I am trying to decided which would be the best tool.
    I have ableton live intro 8 and traktor full version. I was thinking ableton arrangement view, but do you need to warp tracks if your not beatmatching per se?
    Or just record mix from traktor into audacity.
    I have a hardware mixer, numark m6 usb-
    ty in advance.

    I mean you can really do either one. I find mixing in Traktor easier, but some people prefer Ableton.

    Do you have a controller for Traktor?

    Mixing in Ableton would be tougher unless you had a dedicated controller like an APC40 or push or something. Also it only really makes sense if your mixing into your own original tracks as a sort of live performance set.

    Personally I find Traktor the easiest interface to digitally mix with if none of the tracks are yours anyway. Simple, straightforward and reliable. Ableton clip launching can be problematic.

    I see, it is what I suspected originally. Thanks fellow techtoolians.
