Never has there been music production software that so closely emulates the human mind and the demand for delivering music through a computer than Live. With an imaginative design and a forward-thinking mission, Ableton continues their legacy with Live 9, a software package that drives music production to the cutting edge while squarely meeting the needs of the composer, producer, perform, songwriter, DJ, and beyond. With such a progressive approach to its development, some of you may feel a bit disoriented or even intimidated at first sight of Live’s unconventional design, especially those of you coming from a traditional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) background. If you are new to DAWs, DJ style programs, or software music production in general, then you’ll soon be right at home with the "parallel concept" of Live’s Session and Arrangement Views. For the rest of you, you’ll have to rethink your approach to composing, arranging and producing music just a bit; but it will be a worthwhile adjustment. That is why this book has been written: to help reinvent the experienced software-based music producer and to unleash the new user. The goal here is to build and cultivate a strong understanding of Live 9’s concepts and to provide material that will engage all DAW users alike. With this goal in mind, at the end of each reading you should feel that your current skills and knowledge base have been elevated to the next level. For the current Ableton Love user – yes, you - there is plenty here to unlock! After all, there is still a little "new user" inside us all. Now it is time to learn how to Create, Produce and Perform with Live 9 – all you have to do is decide what your needs are, because it’s all here. First published in 2013.
