Music Creation software, playable like an instrument. Ableton Live 8’s nonlinear, intuitive workflow, alongside powerful real-time editing and flexible performance options, make it a unique studio tool and a favorite with both studio and live performers. Live 8, the latest version, adds and updates such features as a powerful groove engine, audio warping, live looping, built-in effects, crossfades for editing in the Arrangement View and improved MIDI editing. The music never has to stop in Live. Record audio and MIDI on the fly, drop in loops and samples, add effects and swap sounds without ever hitting the stop button: everything happens in real time. Once you have begun your project, use a wealth of tools to manipulate your audio and midi. The Groove engine allows you to apply groove patterns in real time, extract grooves from audio or MIDI sources or quantize audio and MIDI in real time. An extensive library of grooves is included with Live. Warp audio events by adjusting the position of beats on the timeline. Plus you can slice audio files to MIDI tracks based on transients. Live offers total compatibility. It works seamlessly with controller hardware and makes it simple to assign custom MIDI controls. Live supports AIFF, WAV, Ogg Vorbis and FLAC files, as well as VST and AU effects and instruments. Live 8 also offers full ReWire support and can run as either a ReWire master or slave.

For recording, I use Live like a sketchpad. The "clip" concept lets you easily loop certain phrases or samples (like a guitar part or drum loop) and figure out other parts without having to keep stopping and restarting playback. Also, being able to trigger individual clips dj style really lets you be creative with how you're going to arrange a song.
I was really impressed with the "looper" effect, which is basically like a looping pedal in live. It's been a lot of fun experimenting with layered guitar parts, etc. I've also found the warping function to be great. This lets you basically stretch something you recorded to be slower or faster, without any change in time. It also lets you clean up your recorded parts if you were a little out of time.
The other thing I really like about this software is that it's very stable, even using other companies plugins. I use a lot of VSTs, and I've never had a problem with live.
Overall, a really great product for studio or performance. It's easy enough to pick up that you can start having fun quickly, but deep enough to really let you go as far as you want to go with programming, mixing, etc. Two thumbs up.
