Best For Beginner: Pro Tools Express Or Ableton Live Lite Vs Pro Tools First



You are watching: Ableton live lite vs pro tools first

If you”re really just using the software as, essentially, a two track tape recorder, then either one of those DAWs will be fine – but ProTools might possibly be slightly more straight ahead.Ableton is mostly known for its innovative workflow, in relation to programming and arranging. ProTools started life as really a multi-track recorder, and to me (having grown up with Cubase) its main window and layout is more obviously familiar.You mentioned a “line in” from the piano – which I”m assuming means it”s a digital keyboard, rather than a mic”d up piano? In that case, you”ll probably want to learn how to record MIDI, as that opens up a whole world of sonic and performance-related possibilities – and, in the home studio, is really the gateway to full-blow “production”.

NOT Ableton in my opinion. The reason being is, I find it very different from Cubase, Logic, Studio One and ProTools (the main DAWs.) All of these operate very similarly and so learning one, is a bit like learning them all.
Neither, go with this…io-One-3-PrimeThis would be a good start for her and its FREEMy reasons:1. Protools First is Cloud based meaning her sessions HAVE to be stored online and NOT on her computer, she is limited to 3 Sessions unless she buys more cloud space. Also, she cant work on her stuff if she is offline. This is a complete no go to me. Once she gets going she will be stuck on the Protools money train as well. 2. Live is very convoluted for a beginner IMO and the overall editing and flow is way different than normal DAWS such as StudioOne, Cubase, Logic, Protools, Reaper
Yes! she is using a digital piano. Does the piano need to be connected via a midi cable to work as a midi controller or will the plug-ins work with it coming in as a line in source?And thanks for the info!

Thanks for the tip! I”ll look into that software. Pro-tools has been a pain to get working ( I think it”s because of her connectivity being at the far side of our house away from our router ). She is moving forward with Ableton but it is VERY different that any DAWs I”ve messed with before.Thanks!

Yes, connect via midi to trigger Virtual Plugin Instruments and also if she wants to record the midi from the digital piano and play that back from the DAW
