Much like Live 7, Ableton Live 8 software is especially advantageous in the live setting with its two main views which allow you to do all your work within a single application. The Session View is essentially a musical scratch pad. You can work out new ideas and improvise in a free and easy environment. Each cell in the Session View grid can hold a recording, MIDI file, or any other musical idea, whether they're recorded on the spot or dragged in from the browser. Then you can play your ideas in any order or any time you wish. The Arrangement View takes a more traditional, timeline-based approach to multitrack recording, MIDI sequencing, and other music production tasks. It will record all your actions as you improvise in the Session View, allowing you to edit them whenever you like. Either view you use is simple and basic enough to make your tasks simple and efficient, which is especially useful during a live performance. This makes Ableton Live 8 software the perfect tool for studios, beat creators, DJs, sound designers, and anyone who wants to make music in a fun and easy way.
The version 8 upgrade enhances Ableton Live's vision of creative, real-time digital music with a wealth of new or improved techniques, effects, and workflow improvements, including:
New groove engine
Groove patterns can add life and swing to straight sequences. Ableton Live 8's new groove engine lets you apply groove patterns in real time, extract grooves from audio or MIDI sources, and quantize audio and MIDI in real time. It also comes with a new groove library.
New warping engine
Live 8 introduces a more direct way of working with warping and some important Warp Mode enhancements. You can now warp audio events by adjusting the events themselves on the timeline. Beats Mode has been updated, and there's a completely new Complex Warp Mode. Plus, you can slice audio files to MIDI tracks based on transients.
A much-requested feature, the Ableton Looper effect gives you classic sound-on-sound looping without the limitations of a hardware device. Looper is set up for remote operation, so you can record, overdub, undo, and more without touching the computer.
Live 8 includes five powerful effects not found on Live 7: Vocoder, Multiband Dynamics, Overdrive, Limiter, and Frequency Shifter. These effects cover all the well-known aspects of these devices, but really shine due to some innovative features and enhancements from the Ableton labs.

im a dj i mainly use ableton to do my edits and remixes every easy to use i like using the warp to put songs on beat.this is a great and realiable product for djs and producers
I'm sure if this is what you've always used, you would find Ableton 8 a very easy to use system. For the Cakewalk/Sonar, Logic Pro user, this may not be the best choice. It is very hard to navigate through effects, audio clips/changes, the like, even after using it for a good while. Not a completely terrible program, yet not a great one.
