PLAY AS YOU PAY
If you want to dive in to Ableton's Live digital audio workstation (DAW) but you don't want to drop hundreds of bucks to get it, check out Ableton Live 9 Intro. This streamlined version of the music-production software includes just what you need to record, arrange, edit, sequence, and finalize tracks. And at $99, it provides an incredibly affordable way to create professional-sounding recordings. Regardless of your experience with music software, you'll find that Live 9 Intro is easy to use and quite powerful.

Ableton Live 9 Intro supports 2 mono outputs, or a single stereo output. If you're a digital DJ, check out the full version of Ableton Live -- you'll want at least 4 mono outputs so you can have a stereo main mix, plus a stereo "cue out" for previewing loops and tracks in your headphones.

Intuitive in Every Way

Live 9 Intro offers a unique Session View for making tracks, performing live, and improvising on the fly. Within the Session View environment, you can work any which way you like, and capture song ideas, record loops, drag and drop complete song sections and loops, overdub, and so forth. How you work within the software is up to you. One of the nice things about Ableton Live (any version) is that you can figure it out on your own by poking around and trying things, rather than referencing a 600-page+ manual.

Is This Version Skinny or Phat? Both!

Enjoy up to 16 tracks of audio and MIDI recording at up to 192 kHz/32-bit resolution, plus support for 8 Scenes. Also edit, manipulate, and refine your audio with a host of editing tools and the awesome feature known as unlimited undo. In addition, Live 9 Intro gives you powerful MIDI sequencing of both software and hardware instruments, real-time time-stretching and warping options, and multiple automation lanes. With Session View automation, all your parameter changes and knob/fader movements are memorized, so you never have to remember what you just did. You can record two audio inputs and monitor 2 audio outputs, and you have two Send and Return tracks.

Built-In Instruments, Sounds, and Effects

Three of Ableton's killer instruments -- Drum Rack, Impulse, and Simpler -- allow you to create and layer sounds, make beats, and sample to your heart's content. The Drum Rack instrument features a familiar 16-pad grid for layering samples, synths, and effects, while the Impulse drum sampler offers advanced modulation tools. Simpler is a simple yet powerful sampler with classic, highly tweakable synthesis parameters.

On a separate disc, you get over 700 sounds covering a range of drums and percussion, synth sounds, construction kits, loops, and more. Specifically, Live 9 Intro includes four sound packs: Designer Drums (synthesized drums), Digicussion 1 (drums and percussion for electronic, experimental, and other rhythmic music), Loopmasters Mixtape (samples and loops), and Unnatural Selection (samples, Live Clips, and Demo Songs from Puremagnetik). If that's not enough for you, you can add more plug-ins or samples as you go.

A comprehensive collection of audio and MIDI effects are included as well: Arpeggiator, Auto Filter, Auto Pan, Beat Repeat, Chord, Chorus, Compressor, EQ Three, Erosion, Flanger, Gate, Grain Delay, Limiter, Looper, Note Length, Phaser, Ping Pong Delay, Pitch, Random, Redux, Reverb, Saturator, Scale, Simple, Delay, Utility, and Velocity.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
