Ableton Live vs. Apple Logic Studio

I discussed this in the Geek Safehouse.

Discuss! I'm looking at doing a little bit of recording but with a lot of live use stuff... Mainstage being a part of Logic looks like it's going to be winning with the modeling and soft synths among other instruments. Correct me if I'm wrong, I've been known to be wrong.

I've used both and find Live to be more stable. I haven't moved up to Live 8 but that is in the works...

I've only used the older Abelton...back in the 5 or 6 days. A Lite copy came with my M-Audio keyboard. It was....cute. I can see how people who do looping and live work would like it. I thought it was totally unsuitable for traditional music production. But apparently it's changed quite a bit since.

I'm a Logic 8 Studio user now. And I'm seeing the Logic light. Only be in it for about 8 months now and it was a steep curve from my Cubase SX 3 system. But now that I've spent some serious time with it: I like it.

Especially by version 7, Live is really totally suitable for recording into. Basically I use live because i understand it and can work it and so i'm the most productive with it...

If you're gonna be using it on stage At All, get Ableton. you won't regret it.
