    I'm having trouble with Ableton Software. Contacted Ableton and I got no response. The program keeps crashing on startup. Other DAW programs don't crash like FL Studio 12, or Adobe Audition. They work perfectly. I tried all versions of ableton, 9 Intro, 10 trial, even 10 Suite DVD. They all crash on startup. I figured out how to read .dmp files to diagnose the crash. After diagnosis I ran the software with administrative privileges and holding down the Alt key. Still the same problem. I'm going to return Push2 that I just purchased. And purchase Machine Studio. I saw one on ebay even cheaper than Push2 and it controls all DAW's w/o problems unlike Push2. The Push2 dies after warranty is over, according to amazon reviews. I'm done with Ableton many complain that they have a lame support. It's well marketed but poorly coded software, even FL 12 surpasses in performance nowadays. Ableton also known to crash a lot when 3rd party plugins are used unlike other DAWs. There are myriad of sound design trainings done on Ableton because meanwhile musicians are biased that ableton is top, it's not. It won't dominate in the industry anymore because in the long run it sucks!

    I just returned my Push2. I won't use Ableton ever again, and don't recommend my fellow musicians in Los Angeles to be biased by marketing. Ableton software & support sucks. sorry.
