Welcome to the next in our series of blog posts about using Garritan libraries in other software programs. This post will guid you when using Garritan in Abelton Live. Garritan libraries are designed for use in DAWs or Notation programs, and many MakeMusic employees do just that. If you’ve never used a VST, Audio Units or RTAS plugin in your favorite DAW or Notation program before, this series will help you get set up and introduce you to some of the features that Garritan has to offer to bring your music to life.
Here’s Chester Yourczek with a guide to using Garritan in Ableton Live:
Ableton Live is a digital audio workstation that primarily focuses on creation, production, and performance. I love this software because there is nothing else out there like it. When I create music in the studio with Ableton Live, I’d be hard pressed to find some sort of limitation or “ceiling” for my creativity.
Garritan libraries are a great partner for Ableton Live because both are performance friendly and demand very little in computer resources. When I’m away from the studio or on the road writing music, my laptop can handle bigger sessions when pairing Live and Garritan.
