Overview

Live is software for creating musical ideas, turning them into finished songs, and even taking them onto the stage. With two views – the classic Arrangement View, where musical ideas are laid out along a timeline, and the unique Session View, where you can improvise and quickly experiment with musical ideas – Live is a fast, fun, intuitive way to make music.

Advanced warping features mean you can change the tempo and timing of any audio, in real time, without stopping the music. And since the software handles keeping everything in time, it’s the perfect program for taking your music out of the studio and onto the stage either as a solo or band performance. Live provides all the tools and effects you need to get your mix or master sounding great, and comes with an array of software instruments and sounds so you can start making music right out of the box.

Create
No matter what instruments you use to create, Live helps you get your ideas down quickly. Live’s Session View is a musical sketchpad you can use to mix and match musical ideas without the constraints of a timeline. Advanced warping features mean you can change the tempo and timing of any audio, in real time, without stopping the music. Use Live’s unique audio-to-MIDI conversion tools to turn drum breaks, guitar lines, or even harmony parts into MIDI patterns that you can edit and reuse with your own sounds. And with Live’s Racks you can make creative combinations of instruments and effects and control them with customized macros.

Finish
From arranging to mixing to mastering, Live has workflows that will help you go from song ideas to finished tracks. You can organize and edit your music in a traditional timeline in Arrangement View, or improvise your way to a finished song, recording everything you do in Session View. And Live has all the tools you need to get your mix or master sounding great – everything from precise EQs to warm, vintage compressors. 

Perform Live’s Session View is the perfect environment for improvising and playing live – everything stays in sync, so you can mix and match audio at any tempo and never have to think about lining things up. Whether you’re playing a solo performance with hardware or software instruments, or processing audio with a live band, Live has got everything you need. And it’s perfect for jamming hands-on: Live works with any MIDI controller, and you can map knobs, faders, and buttons to control almost anything.

Extend
Live is software without limits: it can be tweaked to do almost whatever you can imagine. The Max for Live platform provides a vast collection of custom instruments and effects, the tools to build your own, and a dedicated community of artists and builders who share their creations. You can even work with Max for Live to connect to the wider world: control lights or projectors in sync with your music, repurpose controllers, connect to sensors, and more. Then there’s Link: Ableton’s new technology that keeps software in time over a wireless network. Now a built-in feature of Live and a growing number of other applications, it makes playing together with multiple devices a lot simpler.

Updates and Improvements
Regular free updates means Live 9 users get new creative tools and features. Live 9.7 brought new slicing features to Simpler, adding to the wealth of new sampling possibilities offered since the 9.5 update. Also in 9.5 were new vintage-sounding analog-modeled filters and improved waveforms and monitoring, while 9.2 added refinements and improvements to Live’s audio warping engine and a new Tuner device.

      Comments about Ableton Live 9.7 Suite:

      Thoughout the last 30 years, Ive used a plethora of recording mediums beginning with 4 track cassette. The AKAI ASQ 10 was my first dedicated hardware sequencer. I learned on the Alesis MMT8 as well. First software sequencer was Studio Logic, then there was MOTU's Digital Performer, then ProTools, then Cubase, Cakewalk, Ensoniq's Paris system (nearly killed ProTools), MPC 60+, blah blah and blah. I settled on Logic for the last 10 years. I even purchased Abelton Live 3 or 4? I used Abelton maybe a handful of times. It was a waste of money. As much as Ive enjoyed Logic, Ive never felt like it allowed me to be free to create. It isn't fun to use. I decided to give Abelton Live another shot. Bored with Logic, I downloaded the free 30 day trial...it includes every tool in the full suite and works seamlessly with all the other plug-ins Ive aquired over the years (mostly Native Instruments and Waves). Love it. Music making and production is fun again. It's intuitive, more logical than Logic and has plenty of tools at the core to lay down anything that comes to mind. Some will say, it's best suited for edm or loop based music. Maybe so but I don't write edm and have had no problem adapting this daw to what I do...funky, The Killers, Phoenix, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead genres. You may not want to use Abelton Live to record an orchestra but outside of that, it's pretty versatile...again, very intuitive and fun. If I need Logic Again, Ill just use Reaper.
