BTD STUDIO REVIEW: We love this product. We actually have Ableton 9 Suite which has more VSTi’s and effects. This software can do everything; mixing, recording, compose music with tons of VSTi instruments and even import videos to sync with your music for music videos. We would totally recommend this software. We have been using it for over five years now and still happy with it.
Now as for mastering you can use this software for mastering but it’s not my favorite software for that. Ableton is very powerful and it it does take a very powerful computer as well. We use Intel Core i5 Asus laptop for portable uses and in the studio we use a Gateway Intel Core i5 Desktop with PreSonus hardware, both work very well with Ableton but when loading multiple tracks, VSTi’s and other things does tend to bogged down.
This software does work great for “Rewiring.” Rewire allows you share two recording software products at the same time, lets say you use Propellerheads Reason for instruments and you want to record those instruments into Abelton. You can do that through a function called, “rewire.”
