Music Production Software with Unlimited Tracks & Scenes, Max for Live

Overview

Ableton Live 10 Suite is a solid update to the company's think different DAW software that is particularly popular with electronic and beat making creators. Two GUI views include a traditional, vertical-track display with time moving from left to right (Arrangement View), and the Session View-a place for experimentation that provides room for improvising, playing, and performing with musical ideas, without the constraints of the timeline. Live 10 Suite comes with 13 instruments, 39 audio effects, 16 MIDI effects, and over 5000 production-ready sounds.

Aside from the particular way of presenting the creative process, the software also includes standard features such as unlimited multitrack recording with up to 32-bit / 192 kHz resolution with nondestructive editing and unlimited undo. Essential automatic plug-in delay compensation is available, along with multiple automation lanes and track freezing for conserving DSP. Warping and real-time time-stretch processing can be applied to clips, unlimited instruments, and audio effects, and MIDI effects can be utilized per project. MIDI sequencing, remote control instant mapping, and MIDI output to hardware MIDI devices allows the software to play a central role in any studio situation.

Added in Live 10 is the Capture function, which records any MIDI data into a buffer that can be recalled at any time. This allows you to freely experiment with ideas without the pressure of getting it right. Once you've played a part, simply engage Capture and Live will match your tempo and timing. Live 10 now allows for the editing of multiple MIDI clips across multiple tracks within a single view from both the Session and Arrangement views. Additionally, the Arrangement view has been optimized for quick creative editing and more efficient song creation. Live 10 Suite introduces a new synthesizer, Wavetable, which allows you to stretch, morph, and shape a wide range of waveforms into a rich and vast sound palette.

The software supports multi-core and multiprocessor computer configurations, and includes support for WAV, AIFF, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC file formats. The software functions under both Mac and Windows operating systems.
