Ableton Live’s Arrangement View is a familiar working space: time moves from left to right, while tracks are stacked vertically. Live also features the Session View: a unique sketchpad for quick, intuitive composition, flexible performance and improvisation, without the constraints of the timeline. Freely start or stop any number of audio or MIDI loops - everything stays in sync. Almost everything in Live works in real-time - add, reorder or remove devices, play with Live’s flexible track routing and more - all without interrupting your creative flow. You can also use Live on two monitors and view the Session and Arrangement at the same time. Record parameter changes directly into Session View, and edit automation curves with the mouse to create smooth mix transitions or radical parameter changes in your clips. In one click, create new Session View scenes from your Arrangement tracks, or drag and copy individual clips from Arrangement to Session. The automation comes with them, making it easier than ever to move from improvising to arranging and back.

Live’s browser puts all of your instruments and effects, samples, Packs and VST/Audio Units plug-ins in one easy-to-navigate view. Drag and drop folders into the browser from anywhere on your computer. Search as you type, navigate from the keyboard and sort items by various categories. Ableton’s Pack store allows you to browse and download instruments and patches. Live’s Glue Compressor is modelled on a classic bus compressor for great sound and to provide musical results with a simple set of controls. Effects including Compressor, Gate and EQ Eight have been improved with new displays, enhanced controls and better sound, making it easier to see and hear your changes. A Tuner shows the incoming pitch on an easy-to-read display, for quickly tuning guitars or synthesisers on stage or in the studio. Audio engine improvements mean lower latency and better automation behaviour. And audio quality - both when warping samples and when exporting your finished work - is now better than ever.

Live 9 comes in three editions: Intro, Standard and Suite. The editions share common features, but Standard and Suite have additional features, Instruments, Packs and Effects. Live comes with a collection of instruments, sounds, kits and loops for creating any kind of music, as well as a full range of effects for processing and tweaking. Common features include unlimited Instruments, Audio effects and MIDI effects per project, as well as multitrack recording up to 32-bit/192 kHz and powerful MIDI sequencing of software and hardware instruments. All three editions provide VST and Audio Unit support, and additional features such as advanced warping and real-time time-stretching, group tracks, time signature changes, multiple automation lanes, and Track Freeze. Live works with any MIDI controller and includes instant mapping for the most popular ones. You can map MIDI knobs, sliders, and buttons or even your computer keyboard to almost every control in Live, and Control Live with your iOS or Android device using powerful third-party software.

With Standard and Suite you can extract harmony, melody and beats from an existing recording or one of your own, and convert them directly to MIDI - Live takes the notes from audio files and transforms them directly into notes in a MIDI track. You can even create new melodies and rhythms using solo instruments or your own voice. Live also provides easy and flexible ways of combining and integrating all kinds of devices. You can use your external hardware synthesisers or effects units as if they were plug-ins via Live’s unique External Instrument and External Audio Effect devices. Max for Live is also included in Suite, so you can expand your musical possibilities and get access to all of the 900+ devices built by the Max for Live community. Max for Live includes inspiring synths, effects and customisations to Live itself, as well as a toolkit for building your own.
