    It depends on what you want to do.

    Ableton is pretty good (and easy to use) as a MIDI sequencer but, in my opinion, is far less convenient if you want to record live instruments, vocals etc. using a microphone (or microphones).
    That's what I do. I drink and I know things.

    Well, I use Ableton as a full DAW. I do sometimes use the session view, not as much as I did in the beginning, but arrangement view is a full on recording DAW, like any other.

    I can't say it is simple, but I think most DAWs are difficult because you really have to learn how to record and mix. If you are not going to use the session view, I think there are other DAWs (Reaper or the one some of the other fine software out there), that take a more standard approach t recording.

    With that said, Ableton is great at using it as a live tool (Session View), standard recording (Arranger View), and really flexible if you want to do both. Lots of tutorials, well supported. But I don't think easy is a term I would use for most DAWs.
