I've purchased the hardware for my home studio after taking a leap that I would find a cost effective DAW/sequencer. The MIDI keyboard came with Ableton Live 6 Lite and it is much more intuitive than what I thought would be the winner, Reaper. Line 6 UX2 m-audio Axiom 49 m-audio BX5a I don't have aspirations of being invited as a session musician to drop my guitar playing into someone else's recording but I would like to be able to ultimately achieve one of my dreams of recording a CD of my work. I don't need to be compatible with anything except being able to ultimately pop out MP3s. I'm about to drop $500 bucks on a DAW that will do a fine job of recording my guitar, bass and vocals + support sequencing for keys and drums. Please share you experience on whether Ableton Live 7 is the right place to do it or do I have better, more intuitive options for my PC (XP). Thanks!
