I’m thankful

LIVE sampling is simple.... and FX are good.

Just felt like saying something nice, being very much impressed with my LIVE so far, and seeing other folks not so happy -

I spent much of Saturday recording samples and audio tracks from live instruments, including a $100 acoustic guitar with a $50 soundhole pickup. Despite the humble source, however, I was able to get a pleasing variety of sounds using the onboard FX. The compressors worked wonders.

My initial response to the FX was "adequate" - but after more experimentation I am increasingly fond of them. Certainly the "default" settings are not so hot, so some twiddling is in order, but great things can be done!
