Ableton Live 6 LE is among the friendliest and fastest music production software around. It provides a simple interface to give you realtime control of pro-level features for recording, songwriting, producing, remixing, and DJing. The Live music engine is super-charged with studio-quality 32-bit/192kHz audio resolution and the power to deliver 64 audio tracks and unlimited MIDI tracks. All you have to do is get in and hit the gas.

Ableton Live 6 offers two main views”the Session View and the Arrangement View”that interact in a powerful and unique way, allowing you to create, produce and perform your music all in a single application.

Session View

Live's Session View acts as a musical sketch and launch pad, encouraging you to try out new ideas and improvise freely. Each cell in the Session View grid can hold a loop, recording, MIDI file, complete song or any other musical element. These ideas can be recorded on the fly or dragged in from the Browser, combined and played in any order you wish.

Arrangement View

The Arrangement View offers a timeline-based approach for traditional recording, MIDI sequencing, arranging, editing and other musical production tasks. And when you improvise in the Session View, all of your actions can be recorded into the Arrangement View, where they can be edited and perfected whenever you like.

Can't wait to get this...after using the lite.

By Sweathouse Productions

from West of Seattle

I've been using Reason 3.0 and a midi keyrig to make beats for the past 2 yrs. I got the Ableton Live Lite version free with my keyrig and I have not used reasons since I downloaded this. the lite version only allows you to use 4 midi tracks and 2 effects so I can not wait to get the next version up.
