More so than any other DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) on the market today, Ableton Live is the preferred choice of today's musicians and DJs. On top of being a killer sequencer and recording software, Ableton Live allows you to mix audio and MIDI loops into your music without any interruptions. Easy to install and even easier to operate, Ableton Live is loaded with a seemingly-endless range of virtual instruments and effects to push the boundaries of what you can do on stage or in the recording studio.
Before choosing an Ableton Live software bundle, it helps to have a better understanding of some of your options. After all, not every package is the same, and some are even made specifically for beginners who are still not completely familiar with digital audio workstations. If this sounds like you, your best bet is to go with the Live 9 Intro. The essentials of Live 9 at a very affordable price, this performance-based DAW lets you instantly capture musical performances, browse for new sounds, enhance your music with effects and even take your performance straight to the live stage. Featuring 3 instruments, 26 effects and over 700 sounds, the Live 9 Intro is the perfect way to get better acquainted with DAW.
Now, for those who are already well-versed with digital audio workstations, look no further than the Live 9 Suite. Boasting 9 instruments, 40 effects and over 3000 sounds, the Live 9 Suite will have you expanding your musical horizons to areas that you never even knew existed. Additionally, this version's new browser makes finding sounds a quick and effortless endeavor, while the unique Arrangement View takes a more traditional, timeline-based approach to multi-track recording and MIDI sequencing, and records all your actions as you improvise in the Session View.
Of course, these two examples have been mentioned to simply give you an idea of what to expect from our Ableton Live section. Whether you're a budding producer or an adventurous musician, you really do owe it to yourself to explore every Ableton Live choice available. Since its release in 2001, Ableton Live has remained the most popular DAW in the world - and as soon as you begin using it, you'll realize why.
