Looking for a versatile music creation and performance software? Ableton Live 12 might be just what you need! This powerful tool offers a range of effects, instruments, sounds, and creative features that allow you to create any type of music you can imagine. With Live's extensive library of instruments and effects, you can easily craft your own unique sound. Alternatively, you can experiment with the many curated Packs available and transform them into something entirely new and exciting.

With its real-time capabilities and complete customisability, Ableton Live 12 is the perfect tool for live performances and hands-on play, no matter your setup. You can sequence your music in either the linear Arrangement View or the Session View for improvisation and experimentation outside of a timeline. Live's warping feature allows you to change the tempo and timing of any audio in real-time without interrupting the music. Record MIDI or real-world instruments, vocals, or other sounds and use Live's creative capabilities to improve your performance or generate new ideas. With MIDI Transformations and MIDI Generators, you can add changes to your patterns and generate fresh ideas that you can transform into your own. Additionally, Sound Similarity helps you identify presets and sounds that are similar to those you are working on.

Ableton Live 12 comes with an array of new features, including MIDI Transformations and Generators, Sound Similarity, Tuning Systems, Keys and Scales, new devices like Roar, Meld, and Granulator III, MIDI Editor enhancements, Workflow enhancements, Accessibility and Navigation enhancements, and new Packs like the Performance Pack, Lost and Found, and two drum Packs from Sound Oracle.

About Ableton Live

With Live's two modes of operation and a plethora of creative tools and sounds that can be combined in countless ways, the only limit to your music is your imagination. Live gives you the tools you need to capture your ideas as well as uncover new ones. Its synthesizers use wavetable, FM, subtractive, granular, analogue, and physical modelling architectures to produce a wide range of sounds. Every Live edition includes the Core Library, which contains vintage synths, analogue drum machines, keys, multi-sampled drums, and much more.

On stage, you can play, resequence, and remix your music in real-time with Live. Use versatile MIDI mapping to configure practically any aspect of Live for hands-on management with your controller. You can create your own unique combinations of instruments and effects, as well as control any number of parameters with up to 16 Macro knobs. Find your favourite settings and save them as macro snapshots to create builds, drops, and instant variations during your performance.

With Ableton Link, you can connect Live to any MIDI controller, including MPE-compatible devices, to apply bends, slides, and pressure to individual notes in a chord, make subtle expression modifications, and use your hands to create dynamic audio tapestries. You can extend your setup with Max for Live, which allows you to customize many of Live's gadgets, create your own from scratch, and even hack Live's functionality. You may link Live to a variety of devices, including lights, cameras, sensors, and surround sound systems.
