Create music your way

Use Ableton Live 9 to piece together song ideas and song structures by dragging around sections and loops in Session View.

Ableton Live 9 Standard (boxed)

I previously had Ableton Lite 9 which only come with 8 audio and MIDI tracks. The reason why I bought through Sweetwater the Ableton Live 9 Standard (boxed) is that I have now an unlimited number of Audio and Midi track available, which permit me to create in more details my work. Ableton Live 9 standard is very easy to work with and it records with extraordinary precision and fidelity the sound I need.So for those who think to buy this software, do not hesitate and just get it.

Great Product

This will be really good once I learn the ins and outs.

4.5/5

Awesome software at an excellent price

The installer is flawless (at least on the mac). The program knows what it is doing by recognizing external USB devices accurately and connecting them automatically. The advanced features like analog to midi are mindblowing in their creative potential. The included 600 page manual stinks since it is printed in 'gray' and white with impossible to read screen shots as illustrations thru out. Don't expect to use the manual for learning as it is typical what you get from software nerds.
