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 Suite comes with the full collection of instruments, sounds, kits and loops for creating any kind of music.

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.

Tools that understand audio, instead of just playing it
Live Suite can convert harmony, melody and beats from recordings to MIDI. Live Suite 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 Suite is even more powerful when it's hands-on. And it works with instruments and controllers of all kinds:
Live Suite works with any MIDI controller and includes instant mapping for the most popular ones.
Flexible MIDI and keyboard mapping
