i'd say that part is really up to you. experiment with different effects, i personally prefer using effects on each individual channel but i don't know if your controller has enough configurable settings to make that viable. but that's what i'd recommend. throwing a limiter on the master channel is a good idea so keep with that.

and again just make sure that if you're going to be playing out tracks at a club or wherever you're djing that they're at least 192kbps or else it's going to sound like mud playing at the volume you'll generally be playing.

in the end it's really up to your own personal preference what sort of effects you put on the channels. mess around with some automated panning effects, they're easy to do in ableton.

Your problem is probably your audio input.. if you are trying to use an audio input and a different output you will have to make a aggregate device... which can be done in your computers midi set up.. google it homeboy

just use ableton's built in synths for now.

but if ur set on buying something... roland sh101 is good or a juno of some sort if you want analog.

Do you hate Ableton's synths because you don't know how to use them? Because buying a hardware synth isn't going to fix that. Start on something simple and learn the basics of synthesis and then decide on what you need specifically in a synth. Buying something fancy is just going to keep you from learning how to program properly and is going to hurt you in the long run.

Agreed. Plus Operator and Analog are brilliant, even Daft Punk uses/loves them and they're the analog Gods.

what kyran said is definitely smarter way to go, but, barnbaby, i don't care at all what you know or don't know about synthesizers, or even if you want to know anything at all about them. and i say, if you have the money to just piss away on nice equipment cause you and your friend woke up this morning and decided to make electro, then you should def. go buy one. why not?
