    is that the snare from ‘protection’ by massive attack? sounds exactly like
    it to me, and you mentioned “trip hop”..

    if you want to change the length of the beat you can 1. change the lengths
    by simply draging the mouse on the and of a note and move the mouse to the
    left or right (hold the mouse at the same time). 2. you can also manipulate
    the lenghts by changing “start” and “stretch” in the impulse-view.

    yeah same with me but ableton is different m8 hopefully in a good way . i
    like reason tho so i might still sequence beats in that . i cant seem to
    get a beat to quantize right in ableton it actually makes it less in time
    …… also cant zoom in on my midi recording it stays small as so i cant
    fix anything.. like i said its different…

    also, if you want to make the beat less than a 16th, use the alt key and

    incorrect ableton has a VERY good 40 odd gb orchestral instrument plugin,
    also ableton can be used very effectively to use samples of your own and
    other peoples, and you can use external VSTi instruments.

    Well, it is BERKLEE. Unfortunately, they are not going to give you much for
    free. They want you to pay 1,000 bucks for the info. What you will get from
    that 1,000 bucks is what counts though. Berklee is one of the top music
    schools in the World. Bar none.

    I am adept with cakewalk, cubase and Logic but given that i can’t get
    anything out of this so-called ‘easy and intuitive’ software do you think
    my copy may be corrupted? If i have no luck over the next week i may have
    to ask for my money back, which would be a huge shame as i hear nothing but
    good things about Live.

    seen the comments n my vote is ableton with rewire and reason, combination
    of good synths and samples with abletons features is a must 🙂 ask Prodigy

    @pixieking1987 Prodigy doesn’t use Reason’s synths on their albums. They’re
    all replaced by hardware and VST instruments run through ProTools. Liam
    uses Reason as a “sketchpad” to get basic ideas down quickly. Reason isn’t
    used for the final product.

    @iluvtrance69 “If you are using a Virus Refill with nice sounds, who is the
    artist?” Unless you’re using precomposed loops, you’re still the artist. If
    it’s just a sound setting like in a typical VST, there’s nothing wrong with
    using it. That’s like pointing at every rock band out there and saying “Hey
    man, you didn’t make your amp nor did you make the guitar, you’re not the
    real artist here.” It’s just how you use it.
