Plenty of sucessful producers never touch ableton.

And most certainly never touch puredata.

cool..all good I agree, and thanks for the puredata info I went and read about it, reminds me of the fun days of using rubber duck and sound forge with Acid etc..as for Ableton, I'm sure if I was presented a computer running it I could find out how to use it within minutes, that however does not justify spending large amounts of money on it just to run something like Overbridge...

I'd prefer a free or shareware platform that was easy on the eye and very basic yet reliable..

Reaper comes to mind.

any AR os update?
an extra 'features' - other than the obvious control and record in- for AR and A4 via vsti/overbridge is the key question?

I second checking out reaper if you aren't into Ableton.

Also if you have bought an interface or midi controller, it probably came with a free version of some daw that you could host vst in.

That interface looks great. And it looks like it actually fits on the screen which for some reason seems to be a hard ask for vsts.

That gui is a pdf file, subject to change, but i love it and can't wait till it is done and out, can't wait to use my analog four with it though i get on alright without it, it just opens the door to many more possibilities plus a full four outputs to daw is nice

I'm a person doing electronic music. I had never heard of puredata. I'm also a software developer full time for a large corporation. I don't have a basic grasp of C. These statements are rhetorical.

To be honest with you, some of us are too busy making music with all this software and instruments.

I'm a computer programmer and I never use C or Ableton for that matter, in fact I haven't had a computer in my studio for over 2 years (Unless you count my MPC1000?). Does this somehow make the music I do not electronic?

As an owner of the Machinedrum UW mk2 & Octatrack, I must say I feel a little underwhelmed. Why can`t they atleast make a simple vst midi-editor for the Machinedrum? Just so automation from the computer would be easier. All the midi-specs are there, it`s just for them to map it out into a plugin.

For this to be good that means that the converters inside have to be top-quality what about people now that are using Apogee converters and stuff like that they're going to have to switch to some unknown conversion happening inside the electron boxes
