Is Ableton Good Software For Making Music?

Question from a subscriber:

How do feel about Ableton? Do you think it's a good software?

Ableton Is Great, But Not My Go-To DAW

Because of my DJ background, I like Ableton for making music in a live setting (like parties or on stage). But my music making workflow is too different.

Ableton has some great features that I really like. I think it is a great DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) for making music in live settings and I have it as a tool in my music making toolbox. However, I never really use it for making beats or moody instrumental music. I like some of the features Ableton has, but overall, it is too different from THE WAY (workflow) I'm making music now.

Find The Best Music Production Workflow For You

I've been using Reason since 2000. The way I make music (my workflow) is heavily tied to the Reason look and feel (how everything is laid out in the DAW). This doesn't say anything about Ableton at all.

What I am pointing out is that workflow (the way) you make music using any DAW is highly important.Your DAW should help you make great music FAST. That is why I suggest you pick one DAW / music making software and learn it well - master it if you can. No matter what that software is, your goal as a MUSIC PRODUCER / MUSIC MAKER is to make good/great music as fast as you can.

Thanks for asking! Hope that helps.

Grace and Peace!
