I think you really try to be certain you understand what your son's
production flow might be like.

There are a lot of people around at the moment (including my stepson, for
example) who are very, very focused on a musical style that in turn is
built around a production style that is really only well supported by
Ableton Live (although the most recent versions of some other major DAWs
including ProTools get close in many ways).

If that is how he imagines making music (samples, beats, looping, slicing,
dicing, triggering, pitch-shifting, tempo-fitting) then giving him more
traditional tools (particularly Ardour or Mixbus) will probably prove
rather frustrating. On the other hand, if he actually plans to record
himself or others playing instruments and then edit and mix the results,
then Mixbus could be a deeply satisfying option. And note: it isn't that
you can't do the Live-style of production with Mixbus (or Ardour), but it
definitely doesn't flow in the same way.

I know the music my stepson makes, and he has mostly used garageband on his
mac (despite living in the same house as me!) But he finds that pretty
frustrating and really wants to get into Live as his next tool.

Hello everyone,

=A0 This is off topic but you are basicvally the only source that I know
of that I know knows something about this. =A0I would like to buy this
for our son for Xmas. =A0I am a registered Ardour user and have suggested
him to use it but he can not really dual boot and use Ardour, since
all of his stuff, and all of his friends and all that are on the Windows
side. =A0If he could also make music there it would be a nice creative
thing that he could share with others.

=A0 Thing is, I know absolutely *nothing* about Windows software. I
almost bought a Sony recording thing but backed off when I realized
there's no support for a M-audio 1010LT card. =A0Our son's machine =
has a
1010LT card and Windows 7. =A0I'm certain many of you here knows a thin=
g
or two or three about Windows recording softwares out there that would
basically be like Ardour. =A0And under $300 if possible.

=A0 So I would ask kindly if it's possible to give some recommendations=

here. =A0It would be greatly appreciated ! =A0If such a request/thread is
verboten, simply tell me. =A0Or send me recommendations by email.

Cheers !
