    Alright, So I have read that a lot of people using Renoise, are using Ableton Live for thier live experiences, But what i dont undersand is, How the hell do you export your Renoise file as a life set into ableton?

    Also, since I dont understand ableton, Why is ableton so much better for live experience?

    And another question, what is it you are doing when you go live? Since you already made the tracks in the daw right? Whats there left to do live?
    (Yeah, I suppose this quation is pretty nuubish, But I never had any live experiences, So i was just wondering)

    fast tracker 2, its the grand daddy of renoise kind of thing. dos based tracker, very popular back in the day. mixing different channels in and out is pretty much all a live gig is about, underworld works like that for example. but then theres richie hawtin who plays really live, guy i used to work with had the same setup and explained it to me. but i dont remember.

    plus you can "tweak" effects and parameters like filter cutoffs in real time. That's all there is to it.

    Maybe you can do some live beatmunging or trigger one-shots as well if you have a good sampler but that's pretty much it i figure. Combining it with DJ'ing is what it's all about imo.

    Alright, thanks guys! This clarifies alot :3

    yeah, i was thinking about Dj-ing as well, but yeah, I dont have any DJ equipment, And I think I'd most likely be horrible at it =p
    (It looks very hard to me.)

    I know its a skill you have to learn, But I never have touched them decks before, and they also are pretty pricey to afford.. (I am poor lol) But I still want to go live :3 Pretty much got my answer, and most likely will just do my live performences in renoise now ive got a proper idea of it in my head :3
