Like we specified, it allows you to record, produce, and perform music in real-time. It features two views for music creation: session view for spontaneous arranging and jamming, and arrangement view for traditional linear arrangement. Ableton Live includes a variety of virtual instruments, effects, and tools to shape sound, and the software can be controlled by MIDI devices and other hardware controllers. It also supports integration with other software and hardware instruments.
