This is not true. Once you've authorised it you don't need to do anything ever again, and you don't even need to connect to their server to authorise (but it's quicker if you do.)
Oops. I misinterpreted the live 8 manual section on this. My bad.

Cakewalk Sonar. Plug-in delay compensation that works flawlessly, pattern sequencer, full effects envelope control, and lots of nice mastering plugins.

If the producer version's too much, you can always opt for the much cheaper studio version, although you might want to buy the Sonitus:FX effects suite with that (Sonitus multiband compressor = easy-to-use mastering compressor).

Seems everyone I've seen that uses live does so only for, well, live performance. I've tried it for writing and didn't find it matched my style, maybe if I tried using it just in the DAW mode and not in the performance (or whatever it's called, the 'grid') mode.
Live is cool in the studio. It's all I use. With the Drumracks instrument, you can assign any sound to a midi note and apply effects individually to each sound, in addition to transposing, using the built-in filters on it, basically everything you would expect from a sampler... It has sort of a "naked" look, with everything looking minimal and all of the included effects and instruments having the same look, which I think works well because what you see doesn't distract you away from what you hear too much.

Funny.. since writing that originally I switched to live and now it's all I use too :D
