I'm learning a new DAW. Ableton.

Just thought I'd vent my frustration.
I'm not really sure I like it's interface and it's file browser thingy compared to FL9 so far.

dude you just gotta keep practicing and getting used to the UI
ableton have some mega powerful plugins and effects!
learn how to use both views not just the one , helps loads!

Haha, I remember the feeling when I tried to get into Reaper. I haven't given up, just postponed it for a while and a half. I don't really feel the need, but if you think it's gonna benefit, keep plugging. Damn frustrating tho.

whoahwhoahwhoah.
I just read I can't use VSTs in Ableton?

How am I meant to get my basslines?! :|
Unless I have to make some silly process of making a blank tone in massive as a standalone, export it, and loading it into Simpler...

if you go to options and preferences there is a spot in there to specify the vst folder (where you put all the .dll files)

i tried to do the move from cubase to ableton a few times but it just frustrates me! tbh tho atm i dont see the need to move yet as im confident enuff with cubase and it does what i want. the only problem i find is not being able to put vst effects onto a midi track.

I tried it once, moving from FL Studio to Reason, but it was a total pain in the ass.
Nowadays I'm working on FL Studio 9 combined with some aspects from Cubase.

Gives me the best workflow in combination with my VST plugins.
