Audio interace 212 focusrite with mic and all this connected to windows 7 laptop. Which has no DAW (mac is so much better!!) I had to download the abelton live lite 8 novation edition that supposedly the complete version comes with purchase of scarlett 2i2 interface. What a pain in the ass it is just to use Ableton!!! I been studying videos and messing around for three days and I still cant get the damn thing to record let alone simple things such as playing an instrumental that I dragged in from my iTunes. I have the drivers needed. Other than that this is such a pain!!! What do I need to do to record some vocals over an instrumental? I must of watched and followed the tutorial videos 15 times and I am not new to this recording and what not. My most familiar recording software is garageband cause I don't do anything too heavy. And garage band is splendid and very user friendly!! Ableton live 8 is crap! Any ideas on how to make work? what about audacity will that work?
