Ableton Live 9 Standard
Ableton Live 9 is the latest iteration of one of the best performance based DAWs available on the market today. The developers at Ableton have added a host of upgrades to their flagship software. With Live 9 you can easily browse for new sounds, instantly capture your performance, record automation directly into clips, enhance your sound with improved studio effects, and then take your performance straight to the stage. There are 3 versions of Live 9, this is the Standard version and includes all software features, 3 instruments, 37 effects, and over 1100 sounds (11GB).
One way that Ableton Live software has an advantage over other DAWs is its extremely fluid GUI that allows you to do all your work within a single window. The Session View is essentially a musical scratch pad. You can work out new ideas and improvise in a free and easy production environment. Each cell in the Session View grid can hold a recording, MIDI file, or any other musical idea, whether they’re recorded on the spot or dragged in from the browser. Then you can play your musical ideas in any order or any time you wish.
The Arrangement View takes a more traditional, timeline-based approach to multitrack recording, MIDI sequencing, and other music production tasks. It will record all your actions as you improvise in the Session View, allowing you to edit them whenever you like. Either view you use is simple and basic enough to make your tasks simple and efficient, which is especially useful during a live performance. This makes it a perfect creative tool for studios, beat creators, DJs, sound designers, and anyone who wants to have fun producing music.
