Reply To: Hardware & Software Recommendations
I am not familiar with Ableton enough to advise. I did work for Apple for 6 years and prior to that established an internet radio station and audio visual lab for the students at a private college. Often what I would do is set up a template for the students. Essentially, configure the software for just what they needed. By stripping it down it was less distracting and they would just reuse it by doing a “save as.”
There may be some info online to do the same with Ableton. With all the options it is so easy to become overwhelmed. I always thought the best software or operating system is the one you are most comfortable with. I am sure you’ll do fine once it becomes familiar.
I recommended the Audio Technica for a friend as it is an excellent choice!
