OVERVIEW

The essentials of Live 9, at a great price.

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. 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.

Updates and Improvements
Regular version 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. 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.

    Comments about Ableton Live 9.7 Intro:

    I was really disappointed to see that the plug-ins were disabled in this scaled down version - that's the whole reason I bought it, so that I could use it in combination with Reaktor and Reason... well I am using GarageBand instead. What a waste. For me it doesn't even deliver what I had in Live 8.

      Comments about Ableton Live 9.7 Intro:

      I am 64 year old school musician and last week I went soft for the first time. I added Abelton Live 9 Intro to my studio full of hardware synthesizers and it fits quite well. I also added the Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2nd Generation and Akai LPK25 midi keyboard controller and I am very pleased with their performance.

          Comments about Ableton Live 9.7 Intro:

          Really Love Ableton. I got the intro version when I bought a launchpad and I used that to learn the ropes of Ableton. I sat down and had it learned in a couple hours. I since have upgraded to Suite and the amount of stuff you can do is amazing. Its also super easy to navigate, (unlike Pro Tools.) Kinda sucks that only 8 tracks in the intro but its a great learning version. PLAN TO UPGRADE!! If you don't plan to upgrade you will get frustrated with 8 track and no plugins.
