Ableton Live has grown to become one of the top 3 professional music production platforms. Ableton Live is great for quickly jamming ideas into loops, easily sampling audio and slicing it into Live´s drumack, pads or keyboard notes - all while automatically time scratching the audio to match the songs tempo. Once you are done with your song production you can perform your arrangement in a live performance instantly rearranging the song parts and tweaking effects with midi controllers to present your music in a fresh and exciting way!
