When Ableton Live came out in 1999 it was radically different from other musical software. For the people behind Ableton, the computer was not a replacement for a tape machine in a studio but a tool to improvise with on stage and as part of the creative process. The principe is “It is all about playing and constructing in real time”, not about capturing a performance from a ‘real musician’…
The main and revolutionary idea was: The computer is the instrument itself and the musician too. The person behind is the conductor and performer of this new type of instrument.
Live is the most easy and powerful piece of software to date and so are our dedicated Expansion Packs!
Endless source of inspiration!
