Ableton Live Intro Digital Audio Workstation at a Glance:
A different approach to making music
Whether you're entirely new to making music in any computer-based DAW or just new to Live, you'll love the way that Ableton Live Intro approaches music writing. Most DAWs work along a linear timeline, and while Ableton Live can record and play back along an overall timeline, it can also use loops and scenes to depart sharply from this traditional approach. Each audio or MIDI loop plays indefinitely until you tell it to stop. When you layout a series of loops that go well together, you can create a scene from them. Ableton Live Intro allows you up to eight different scenes. Each scene triggers a series of loops, but you can always trigger loops manually outside of any scene, recombine them, and create new scenes. And although you can trigger scenes to play in order, you can also go back and trigger earlier scenes. By constantly being able to go back and make changes, triggering different loops, and finding new combinations, you get a more musically minded approach to creating music. When you're ready to record, just arm your tracks and record your performance.
Break out of the studio and take it live
Ableton Live's loop and scene based method of approaching music composition adds a completely different element to live DJing. Instead of spinning tracks, you can DJ loops right out of live, assembling completely original music on the fly. Already, the DJ world has jumped on Live and discovered thousands of ways to use it, either on its own or together with DJ programs. Because Ableton Live Intro offers complete ReWire support, it can beat synch and transfer audio into many of the most popular DJ programs. You don't have to be a DJ to appreciate Live. Many artists from a wide range of music have been using Live's incredibly powerful MIDI engine (which allows you to control almost all of its parameters to be controlled via MIDI) to trigger backing tracks, loops, and sound effects as they play. So, whether you use it on its own, together with other DJ software, or as an accent for your live performance, there is a lot you can do with Ableton Live Intro.
The hottest content from the full version of Ableton Live
Ableton Live Intro isn't some crippled version of Live that only gives you a taste of the full program, it's a feet-first entry into the deep end of the Live experience. For instance, you get 19 standard effects that come with the full version of Ableton Live. Plus, you get seven great real-time MIDI manipulation effects. While you are limited to eight scenes, you get a total of 16 audio tracks and 16 MIDI tracks, which is easily enough material to run a complete live performance with. And with 500 awesome instruments and over 7GB of loops, you have plenty of material to shake things up. Also, you get the complete ReWire capability of the full version of Live, allowing Ableton Live Intro to act as either master or slave over other programs, letting you integrate it fully with other DJ software. Finally, MIDI Out gives you control over other hardware units, making Ableton Live Intro a truly powerful tool, both live and in the studio.

A fresh Easy Fun way to create music easily and improvise!
by John Mannes from Washington, D.C.When I saw this deal just 7GB. Of Loopmaters loops for $66.00 seemed enough, but Ableton give's you so much more.

Within 1 hour, a2nd hour and 3rd hour just passed as if they were minutes. I was a kid in a candy store and just going from one loop to another or mixed with a third, or improvising melodies with my keyboard controller. Live is layed out so simply yet creatively enough to just dig in, stay in, laugh, tap your feet and say "I can jam on a DAW?" 40 yesrs past my first keyboard , the Minimoog and 30 from my T-1, 20 from my StylusRMX and ths will be another BIG mark from wherever music production goes from here? I'm extremely happy, impressed and improvising like i am in a dream world! Great deal, Sweetwater make's me happy and impressed yet again! This is a great place to start "Live"ing in a whole new musical world and environment Big shout-out to Ryan W. my sales assistant and Sweetwater Guru, who hasn't let me down! Five stars all catagories, as usual! close [-]

After install and easy setup of hardware settings for audio and midi, I got to work for about six hours solid, no glitches, no crashes, no clicks, no pops, no pffssss. Perfect! Already I had the beginnings of a new song and it sounds great. Live Intro is 'Awesome'
The file browser is very well organized, also very simple to setup external third-party VST/VSTi plugins. Cool! Now I have more than enough to get the job done!
I highly recommend either Ableton Live or Intro. close [-]
