I switched to Ableton Live because of this controller. I use my mouse less and less because this controller can do most of the functions I need. From picking the sound I want to use, putting it in the track,turning on the metronome, adding effects. This workflow is fantastic, and also the pads feel really good. I can change to what ever key I want to play in, or make some custom keys. You just have to get it in order to really appreciate it. I never like grabbing my mouse when I had my creative juices flowing, now I can lay, play, and call it a day!!
