    Hi guys and gals, havnt posted anything new for a while as I've been spending alot of time trying to learn a new style.

    In amongst learning this new style, I have taken the leap and got a new DAW! I have jumped ship from FL Studio, over to Ableton Live 8, and I can safely say I'm glad I made the change!

    Anyway, the new style I'm trying to master is Minimal Drum and Bass, I really love the style at the moment, so wanted to try my hand at it.

    Because of my time away from here, the change of style, and the change of software, I am pleased to bring you now, my 1st track ever made in Ableton, and you can have it for free, as a way of saying I'm sorry for being away from the forum for a while!

    You swapped to Ableton too then? heheh. Did same from Cubase last year sometime. Havn't regreted it for a second!
    Tune has come out pretty good too dude. Did the bass line, drums are nice and clear too.
    Seems like your getting the hang of it for sure.
    Keep up the good work!

    QFT!

    Cheers guys, only been using it a couple of days, but lovin every second of it. Dunno how I lasted so long without it! Fruity still has a special place in my heart, but I reckon it's gonna be taking a back seat for quite some time!

    I think the intro has too much kicks.. and u could safely turn up the backround atmos abit, i nearly cant hear them, just the loud kick. other than that its pretty sweet man;P

    cant understand why anyone wants to change from fl, but ok :D track is dope anyways..

    i particularly liked the atmosphere you were going for, but thought the kick was a bit too long and the clap/snare thingy could use some more definition.

    id also loose those doublekicks in the intro, try leaving out some kicks and snares instead of filling in more for a change, as you said you wanted to make it minimal ;)

    sounds like nfs most wanted soundtrack anyways, big ups!

    Cheers peeps.

    Gonna leave this one as it is for now as it's my 1st trial run in Ableton, and it's up for a free DL, so didnt plan on being to picky with it. Thanks for the suggestions tho!

    Intro is boring, needs spicing up a little. Not to my taste, seems like you've got the hang of Ableton, I swear by it. Although I can't get my Moog little Phatty to work on it yet!!!!!!!!!

    how was the transition from fl studio to ableton?? I'm also thinking to try ableton... Sometimes fl works like shit... Btw, intro's a bit repetative, till 1:19 than it's nice and clean.

    It's a completely different setout to FL, but I found the transition fairly easy thanks to DJ Bluey (The owner of UKDNB) who basically sat there with me for a day via AIM giving me some lessons. I think if I had tried to work it all out myself I wouldnt have had a clue!

    Best thing I ever done was make the switch though, I absolutely love Ableton! I'm not taking anything away from FL, it done me proud for a couple of years, but I'm not gonna be going back anytime soon
