A FEW DAYS AGO, I wrote that there was no program for the Mac that compares with Sonic Foundry’s Acid. Todd Fletcher wrote me to say that Ableton Live fills that bill. Cool. I’ll have to check it out.

I’ve lost the email, but I did save the link, and I was reminded when I read this interesting piece in Wired about what the spread of computer-based music tools is doing to the industry. It’s very much like weblogging. Guess that’s why I do both, though I’ve been slacking on the music front.

UPDATE: Eric Olsen has more about computer-based music.
