**THIS IS AVAILABLE FOR EDUCATION ONLY - for adding additional seats to an existing multi-seat licence**

Ableton Live is fast, fluid and flexible software for music creation and performance. It comes with effects, instruments, sounds and all kinds of creative features—everything you need to make any kind of music.

Create in a traditional linear arrangement, or improvise without the constraints of a timeline in Live’s Session View. Move freely between musical elements and play with ideas, without stopping the music and without breaking your flow.

Create your perfect take

Take recording and comping

Live organizes multiple passes of an audio or MIDI performance into individual takes. Pick the best moments of each performance and combine them to create your perfect take. Or approach sound design in a new way by splicing together random samples from your library.

Linked-track editing

Link two or more tracks to edit their content simultaneously. This makes editing multi-tracked instruments or performances with multiple musicians easy and fast whilst keeping everything in time across tracks. This feature also works for MIDI tracks.

Sketch, tweak and experiment

In Live’s Session View you can freely mix and match musical ideas without the constraints of a timeline. Getting ideas down is lightning fast, and it’s the ideal place for improvisation. You can play MIDI and audio loops of different lengths in any combination, without ever stopping the music.

Get into the details

The Arrangement View is where you can organize music along a timeline. Record multiple passes of an audio or MIDI performance into individual takes. Find the best parts of each and stitch them together for the desired final result.

Develop an initial idea or organize your parts to create the right musical flow for your track. You can also simply record everything you do in the Session View into the Arrangement to improvise your way to a finished song.

Get your ideas into Live

Whatever shape inspiration takes, Live gives you the means to seize it. Record hardware synths, software plugins, drum machines, guitars or any audio from the real world. You can now use Capture MIDI to record notes after you’ve played them, turning your most spontaneous ideas (and accidents) into music. And there’s Live’s audio-to-MIDI features, which let you turn drum breaks, and melody or harmony parts into MIDI patterns that you can edit and reuse with your own sounds.

Use any sounds, at any tempo

One of the things that makes creating with Live so fluid is the ability to change the tempo and timing of any audio, in real-time, without stopping the music. We call this warping. Use warping to mix and match loops from a variety of tempos, fix timing errors in recorded performances, or radically reshape any audio into new sound design directions.

Build your sound with Live’s instruments

Live’s native devices are the foundation of sound design in Live, including wavetable, FM and physical modelling synthesis. Flexible synthesis architectures with intuitive interfaces make deep programming more accessible. And you get more out of your samples with Live’s pair of sampling instruments, thanks to built-in slicing and warping capabilities, multi-sampled playback and much more.

Effects for shaping ideas, designing sounds and finishing music

Live comes with the devices you need for sparking ideas and shaping your sound. Use Live’s MIDI effects for creative manipulation of your compositions. Or use Live’s audio effects to get the sound you’re looking for: clean up your mix with precision tools, or make a creative mess with analogue-modelled noise, distortion and saturation.

Sound selections

The sounds for making any kind of music are part of Live. The Core Library—included with all editions of Live - comes with rich collections of vintage synths, analogue drum machines, multi-sampled drums, electric pianos and other acoustic instruments. Plus there are Curated Collections, toolkits of curated sounds from selected scenes—Instrument Racks, clips and samples, designed to be moulded and shaped into something new.

Get hands-on using Push

Push is the best way to get hands-on with Live. Compose beats and melodies, slice samples and sculpt sounds. Mix your music and compose entire tracks, all without thinking about your computer. And each update to Live brings new features that mean ever closer integration with Push.


Connect, extend and customize

Take control

Live is even better when it’s hands-on. Map knobs, faders and buttons to control nearly any parameter. Live works with any MIDI controller and includes instant mappings for a growing number, for instant playability.

Export your Live Set from iOS apps

Capture ideas wherever you are and take them further in Live—use the new Export Live Set feature, now in a number of iOS apps.

Play in time with other devices

Expand your setup and collaborate with others using Link. The technology syncs timing over a network connection, so it’s easy to play Live with software like Reason, Serato and an ever-growing number of iOS apps.

Get more sounds, loops and samples

Packs are add-on instruments, effects, loops and sample collections for use in Live. Each Pack is custom-made by premier sound designers, and the contents of the Packs are ready to use, license-free, in your own musical projects.

Customize Live. Connect with the world around it

Max for Live is a software platform that powers a range of Live’s instruments and effects. You can use it to customize devices, create your own from scratch and even change the way Live works. Or open up a world of possibilities and connect to lights, cameras, sensors, surround sound setups and more.


Perform with Live

The hub for your performance

Use Live to pull your show together. Control external hardware, integrate outboard effects or mixing desks. Improvise on your own, resample sounds in real-time, or process audio played by others. If you’re playing with multiple music applications, our technology Link can keep multiple devices in perfect time over the same network.

Make every show unique

One of the things that makes Live so ideal for performance is its flexibility. You can design your own unique combinations of instruments and effects, and use up to 16 Macro knobs to control any number of parameters. Find settings you like and save them as Macro snapshots for instant recall.

On stage, you can trigger, resequence and remix your music in real-time. And use flexible MIDI mapping to set up almost any part of Live for hands-on tweaking with your controller.

Tempo Following

Live listens to and adjusts its tempo based on incoming audio in real-time, making it a dynamic part of the band instead of the tempo source that everyone has to follow. When you DJ, you can even turn Live into a tempo-synced FX box.

For any stage

Whether they’re on-stage solo or as part of a band, artists depend on Live for orchestrating their performances. Some even go beyond sound: using Max for Live to control visual projections or light installations in sync with their music, connecting to sensors and much more.


Add more feeling to your music

Use your MPE-capable controller

Plug in your MPE-capable controller and immediately add bends, slides and pressure for each individual note in a chord. Add subtle expression variations, morph between chords and create evolving sonic textures.

What is MPE?

MPE stands for MIDI Polyphonic Expression. This way of using MIDI allows MPE-capable devices to control multiple parameters of every note in real-time for more expressive instrumental performances.


Experiment with new devices

Hybrid Reverb

Hybrid Reverb combines convolution and algorithmic reverbs. Place your sounds in any space, from accurate real-life environments to those that defy physical reality. Use the algorithmic side to add control and modulate the reverb tail, run it in parallel or in series with the convolution side, or play Hybrid Reverb like an instrument for real-time sound design.

Spectral Resonator

Breaks the spectrum of an incoming audio signal into partials, then stretches, shifts and blurs the result by a frequency or a note in subtle or radical ways. The MIDI sidechain input also allows musicians to process material in key and even play the device as if it were a polyphonic instrument.

Spectral Time

Transforms sound into partials and feeds them into a frequency-based delay, resulting in metallic echoes, frequency-shifted and reverb-like effects. The Freeze function captures and holds a slice of audio – either free-running or in time with the beat – for stuttered, glitched and washed-out effects.

PitchLoop89

Create jittery glitch effects, delayed digital shimmers and outlandish vibrato with this Max for Live pitch-shifting device created in collaboration with Robert Henke and inspired by the Publison DHM 89 – an early digital effects processor. It’s a flexible tool to add character to sounds in the studio, or for in-the-moment experimentation onstage.


Do more on stage

Tempo Following

Live listens to and adjusts its tempo based on incoming audio in real-time, making it a dynamic part of the band instead of the tempo source that everyone has to follow. When you DJ, you can even turn Live into a tempo-synced FX box.

Macro Variations

Store the state of your Macros for later recall – perfect for creating instant variations to your sounds or builds and drops during a performance.

Rack improvements

Configure your Racks to have between 1 and 16 Macros. Randomize the state of your Macros with the randomization button. Map this control to MIDI and perform drastic changes in real-time to surprise your audience and yourself.

Note chance

Set the probability that a note or drum hit will occur and let Live generate surprising variations to your patterns that change over time.

Velocity chance

Define ranges for velocity probability for subtle, humanized variations in the dynamics of your patterns.

Do more with Follow Actions

Follow Actions can now be linked to the clip length, making it faster to create interesting sequences of clips. Scene Follow Actions let you create evolving arrangements. You can also set Follow Actions to jump to specific clips and enable and disable Follow Actions globally.


New Sounds

Voice Box

A comprehensive collection of contemporary vocal samples from multiple voices, a set of playable vocal instruments, and Effect Racks designed for vocal processing.

Mood Reel

Evocative layered instruments that combine organic and synthetic sounds with textural elements to add mood, space and movement to productions.

Drone Lab

Sustained tonal and textural samples, generative noise, multi-sampled instruments, plus devices and Effect Racks designed for experimentation.

Upright Piano

Upright Piano is close-recorded for an intimate feel – a classic sound that is at home in many styles of music. Created in collaboration with Spitfire Audio.

Brass Quartet

This instrument highlights the natural breathiness, range of expression and broad tonality of the brass quartet. Created in collaboration with Spitfire Audio.

String Quartet

This combination of two violins, viola and cello has a sound that is immediately intimate and is also a great starting point for sonic exploration. Created in collaboration with Spitfire Audio.


Updated Sounds

Updated Core Library

Live’s Core Library is expanded with a focus on contemporary music production, including new drum kits, Instrument Racks, Audio Effect Racks, Grooves, loops and MIDI clips. Plus, improved browsing makes sounds easier to find.

More Additions

Refined clip editing

Edit loops of multiple clips simultaneously, focus on a single clip in context and easily transpose entire arrangements from one piano roll.

Improved Clip Detail View

New tabs for Note Parameters, Follow Actions, Envelopes and MPE provide a clearer overview of and access to parameters and properties of a Clip.

Improved CPU metering

An updated master display can now show current and average CPU usage, plus per-track CPU meters show which tracks in a set use the most processing power.

Keys and scales

Use scales directly in Live’s MIDI editor as a guide or reference – this is linked to Push, and can be changed per clip.


Changes to Push

Visualizations for new devices

See visualizations of key parameters in Hybrid Reverb, Spectral Resonator and Spectral Time on Push’s colour display and control them directly from the hardware.

Key and Scale sync

The Key and Scale feature in Live 11 is linked to Push and can be changed per clip.

Polyphonic aftertouch support

Apply different levels of aftertouch to individual notes when using Wavetable, Sampler, Arpeggiator and supported VSTs for more nuanced and dynamic performances on Push.

See up to 16 Macros

In Live 11, access Macros 9-16 from a second page after the Rack page with Macros 1-8. The second page appears automatically once you map more than eight Macros.


New in Max for Live

New API additions

A redesigned, MPE-compatible note API gives Max for Live access to Live 11's new note features: probability, velocity deviation, and release velocity. You can also now access slices of a sample loaded in Simpler, a clip or sample's warp markers, and much more.

MIDI Channel Routings

It is now possible to route MIDI to and from Max for Live audio effects and instruments. Inputs and outputs are routable and show up in a track's MIDI From and MIDI To choosers.

Improvements for Device creators

A new live.scope object adds an oscilloscope to the object library. Double-clicking an error in the Max Console jumps the cursor to the device causing the error. A new Max for Live category in the Inspector Window allows developers to more clearly indicate which systems their devices can be used on, and much more.

Performance improvements

A complete overhaul of Max for Live’s user interface integration means a smoother experience when working with Max for Live devices, including improvements to focus, positioning, scrolling behaviour, and performance.
