Ableton Live 9 64bit is a professional audio sequencer for live and studio sessions.

There’s a reason Ableton Live 9 is the name professionals and pro-sumers look for in audio software: it’s the best.

With Ableton Live you’ll have everything you need to produce live and studio music at your fingertips including a sequencer with unlimited banks, a sampler that you can draw from at any time, multiple views and real-time stretching so you can see results as you work, not just in post.

One of the greatest things about the program however is the fact that there are so many tutorials and videos available to teach you how to use Ableton to do everything from step sequencing to processing stems to share with your fans; this only scratches the surface of what Ableton Live is able to do, though.

When you buy Live you get access to Live’s Instrument Racks that provide a vast library of thousands of real and imaginary instruments to speed up production. The new MIDI note manipulation tool even lets you change things on the fly – you can even beatbox, sing, or even hum into Live and it’ll produce a MIDI track of notes to accompany it, too!

It’s important to note though that no matter how great this program is, without some technical knowledge or willingness to sit through hours of tutorials, Ableton Live might not be right for you. It requires a lot of brain power just to do some of the most basic functions; that being said, once you master all of the functionality of Live you’ll be able to produce professional music that’s ready for market.

If you’ve been searching for a production solution that can sequence, sample, stretch in real time and offers enhanced MIDI manipulation and creation tools, Ableton Live 9 is definitely worth checking out. The trial is free and if you don’t like it you can always uninstall it – just make sure you take full advantage of all the tutorials and videos out there so you can make the most of the software!

Cons

  • Hard to Use You’re going to need some technical know-how to get the most out of this program, but if you're willing to work through some tutorials this shouldn't be a problem.
