pianos for Ableton Live

FWIW, using Live 8 standard, not Studio, and I'm not using any packs (yet).


The included acoustic is bright and not at all subtle, but it works in a pop arrangement. I'm attempting an all-Ableton version of Thomas Dolby's "I Love You Goodbye," and it's perfect for that.


The delivered EPs--"Electric" engine = Lounge Lizard engine. I used to like it a lot, but I've become more of a fan of Pianoteq Stage's Rhody/Wurly instruments.


There are at least a couple of grand piano packs available, and for EPs, the Sonicouture Wurli/Rhodes are available.


Any reason you are avoiding VSTs/AUs? If Live were for sure the absolute center of my world, I suppose the packs would suffice, but I can't imagine locking yourself in when there are lots of interesting choices out there.

Ah, well, from what I've seen so far, much of the Ableton stuff is often repackaged sample libs optimized for the Ableton environment (pre-mapped controls, preset lists).


I suppose the benefit there is that you're guaranteed more stability by not hooking a third-party sample playback engine into the Ableton environment.
