Ableton Live Lite 5 Software
Ableton Live Lite 5 delivers much of the functionality of Ableton Live 5—the revolutionary, multi-award winning music production solution that allows you to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise and edit your musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. Live brings your acoustic, electronic and virtual instruments—as well as your digital audio recordings and MIDI sequences—together in a single interface with unparalleled ease of use.
Live’s multi-award winning elastic audio sequencing lets you record, import, arrange and process multiple audio clips and loops into complete songs regardless of their pitch or tempo—all in real time while the music continues. You can even change tempo and pitch of audio independently after the fact—and clip envelopes create endless loop variations. Of course, you can also integrate linear tape-style recording along with your loops.
New additions to M-Audio's version of Live Lite include full ReWire Support, MIDI Remote Control, Mackie Control Support, Complex Warp Mode, Clip Freeze, Plug-in Delay Compensation, Arrangement Locators, Live Clip Format, Searchable Browser, New Preset Management and Effect/Device groups, Hi-definition recording (up to 32-bit/192 kHz), and new effects such as Beat Repeat and Saturator.
Ableton’s unique approach to music production extends to a new paradigm in MIDI sequencing and manipulation as well, complete with exclusive virtual instruments. There’s also VST and Audio Unit support and a host of effects you can’t find anywhere else. As simple to use as it is powerful, Live is a completely unique musical tool that blurs the distinction between stage and studio.
Where the full version of Ableton Live gives you all of these capabilities across an unlimited number of audio and MIDI tracks, Ableton Live Lite 5 gives you four audio tracks and four MIDI tracks. Live Lite 5 will not include compressed audio support. Given Live’s unique power and efficiency—including resampling—that’s a lot of production capability right out of the box. It’s so intuitive and inspiring that you’ll be making new music immediately. And if you decide to unleash the full power of Ableton Live, your experience and files are completely transportable. Either way, Live lets you focus on what really matters: your music.
