Yup, still around, getting on with the job. And there are only so many ways you can manipulate wav or MIDI data. I'll bet Cubase can do anything the "alternative approach" DAWs can.

Feel free to prove me wrong though! What's a unique result you can get with e.g. Ableton that nothing else can manage?

Damn ... where do you start ? Being able to adjust the BPM and everything stays in time whatever happens ... being able to structure whole songs live, it asks you explicitly if you wish to stop the audio, the integration with touchable and so many control surfaces, max for live, and that's just version 8.

For making tracks its far more creative and produces superior results in a shorter space of time.

In other words, instead of using several samplers or DJ decks - Ableton Live is focused on the loop musician and or DJ - nothing wrong with that - in fact it Roxxx!. For a traditional musician using keyboards, drums, live guitars, the benefit is not too big (IMO) and from a traditional recording workflow approach... it hmm... Suxxxx.
