    That's like saying a phonograph is for DJing. Sure, you can use it for that, but if you think that's "what its for," then you just don't understand the software.

    Well, you can, actually. Just turn off the warp button, and it will leave the audio unmanipulated. Then, if you wanted to, you could set up everything on individual tracks and then crossfade between then on an APC and what have you. Sure, it isn't an ideal use of Ableton, and you'd probably be much better off with Serato.... but you could do it.

    Yes it is, but most people use Live for live "pre-arranged" sets, and sometimes people like to use it for DJing, Live it its own monster you can do it ALL. Traktor on the other hand is primarily for DJing, I don't believe I have ever seen anybody use Traktor for a "live" set.

    Lets not let the poor boy be confused.

    w/r/t Shadow & Cut: I was making a quality statement. Sets where they DJ their own work vs. spinning others' records are equally entertaining. However, I'm less entertained when I see the Chems "DJ" vs. when I see them "play live." Just my thing.

    As far as the superstar DJs thing -- there are exceptions. But generally, when you see Oakenfold on a bill, they don't qualify it with "DJ Set" or "Live Set" like they do for the Chems or TCM or Moby, etc. The line gets a little blurry. You generally expect them to mix, not play. Nobody cares, as far as I can tell, nor should they.
