Hope all are well. Looking to tap into the collective knowledge here.
Recently switched from an aged Mac to Win 10 and just bought new interface. Historically have done multitracking, song based recording. But now am less band / song focused.
Most of my enjoyment comes from noodling in alt tunings and building up progressions based on this so I was wondering about building a DAW/workflow around this. Usually i would pass my stuff onto someone else for melody / lyrics / structure, but I am wondering if technology could help me with this next level.
So the ability to record 15 minutes of noodling.
Being able to edit this down into segments.
Building drums and synth melodies over this. Drums played live from a Roland kit. Or all from a built in synth / sequencer.
The ability to flexibly arrange the result.
I was thinking along the lines of something of Ableton. I did download this for the mac, but a combination of it being a bit alien, and too much for the mid 2009 macbook (despite it being pimmped with SSD and RAM) didn't really inspire.
What say you? Ableton or another?
