Ever since making the switch to Ableton, especially for when I perform, my life has been generally more positive (at least that’s what I think). The ease and convenience of the program just seems like a natural ebb and flow while I make and perform my music. It was one of our favorite DAWs mentioned in our best music production software article, specifically for live performances. When it comes to music equipment, we love our MIDI controllers (especially keyboards). If you’ve just purchased Ableton or have been using it for a while and have decided that it’s finally time for an investment in a MIDI controller (as it is merely the basis of Ableton and a lot of it’s features), we’ve compiled just that for you.
