Blurs the distinction between stage and studio.
Ableton Live 4 is the revolutionary music production solution that allows you to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit your musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. Live brings your acoustic, electronic, and virtual instruments as well as your digital audio recordings and MIDI sequences together in a single interface with unparalleled ease of use. In short, Live lets you focus on what really matters: your music.
Live's award-winning elastic audio sequencing lets you record, import, arrange, and process multiple audio clips and loops into complete songs regardless of their pitch or tempo, all in real time while the music continues. You can even change tempo and pitch of audio independently after the fact and clip envelopes create endless loop variations. Of course, you can also integrate linear tape-style recording along with your loops. With Live 4, Ableton's unique approach to music production extends to a new paradigm in MIDI sequencing and manipulation as well, complete with virtual instruments. As simple to use as it is powerful, Live 4 is a completely unique musical tool.

I absolutly love how easy to use this product is without sacraficing quality. The "session" view makes an almost perfect sketch pad for creating parts of the song in real time AND is perfect for jamming a finished song out in a live performance. The built in effects are much better than I expected and supports all my vst soft synth/fx as well... The only thing ableton is missing is a more comprehensive mixing solution to tweak the final mix... however, having a second sequencer like logic or whatever would be the ideal set up for studio.
I have worked with several different sequencers for both mac and pc. The first night I loaded this on my pc, I spent four hours making the most music i've ever made at once. If you already have Live 3, upgrading is a no brainer
Ableton Live is a great program for a guitarist, drummer, vocalist, any musician or hobbyist. I used this on a 15" Powewrbook G4 on mac OSX and it ran beatifully. The sound was crisp, fresh and very warm sounding. If you are a beginner at recording this program will be very hard to learn.
