If you've used music software before, you're already familiar with one half of Ableton Live. Live's Arrangement View is a familiar working space: time moves from left to right, while tracks are stacked vertically. But Live also features the revolutionary Session View: a unique sketchpad for improvising, playing and performing with musical ideas, without the constraints of the timeline. Freely and independently start and 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.
The instruments and sounds you need to make music
Live comes with a collection of instruments, sounds, kits and loops for creating any kind of music.
Effects, processing and tweaking
For getting your sound right (or wrong in just the way you like it) Live has a full range of effects from corrective to creative, from the classic to the unique.
Devices to rearrange, constrain or randomise MIDI notes for creating endless variations
Work with instruments and effects the way you want to
Live provides easy and flexible ways for combining and integrating all kinds of devices.
Use your external hardware synthesizers or effects units as if they were plug-ins, via Live's unique External Instrument and External Audio Effect devices.
VST and Audio Units
Use VST or Audio Units instruments and effects alongside Live's native devices.
Make your own racks
Racks let you combine multiple instruments and effects into a single device. Each of the eight Macro knobs can be mapped to any number of parameters in a Rack, allowing for customised controls.
Ableton's Pack store allows you to browse and download instruments and patches.
Tools that understand audio, instead of just playing it
Live can convert harmony, melody and beats from recordings to MIDI. Live can take the notes from audio files and transform them directly into notes in a MIDI track. This lets you extract harmony, melody or drums from an existing recording or one of your own. Even create new melodies and rhythms using solo instruments or your own voice. Sampling just got much bigger.
Software you can play
Live is even more powerful when it's hands-on. And it works with instruments and controllers of all kinds:
Live works with any MIDI controller and includes instant mapping for the most popular ones.
Flexible MIDI and keyboard mapping
Map MIDI knobs, sliders, and buttons or even your computer keyboard to almost every control in Live.
Control Live with your iOS or Android device using powerful third-party software
Novation Launchkey 61 v2 USB MIDI Controller Keyboard
The Novation Launchkey 61 (MK2) is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live.
Just plug the Launchkey in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you immediate hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer.
Launch clips, control FX, play beats and much more using 16 pads laid out in two rows of eight, to match your Ableton Live session view: one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. Full colour RGB LEDs mean they'll match the colour of your clips too, while velocity-sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats.
Launchkey 61 is designed to let you shape your sound however you like. Use eight rock solid rotary knobs to tweak your instruments and effects, and nine dedicated faders for hands-on control of your mixer. The 61-note synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances.
All the controls integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything. Of course, if you do not use Ableton, it will map to other major music software using InControl. Novation call this InControl technology, because it puts you in control immediately without any manual mapping.
Launchkey 61 is tough enough to take and use anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won't need any drivers or power cables, because it's class compliant and bus-powered via USB.
Launchkey comes with absolutely everything you need to start making music: Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 1GB collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters.
