Ableton Live 9 Intro is the cheapest and easiest way to get into Ableton Live, offering a taster of the features available in the Standard and Suite versions, while maintaining the same great user interface and experience.
Ableton Live 9 provides up to 16 tracks and eight scenes for recording and performance, making it ideal for those looking to quickly get down their ideas with only a few tracks. Live 9 Intro includes three instruments - Drum Rack, Impulse and Simpler - for inspiration, as well as 26 effects for making each sound your own. The included sound library offers over 700 sounds on 4GB of data.
One of Ableton Live's most coveted features is its Session View, which Intro is equipped with. Session View allows users to view their tracks vertically, with each recorded part showing as a loop which can be played and stopped at any time. Here, scenes can be created where by one click can launch loops from multiple tracks.
Live 9's Arrangement View is structured like other Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs), ideal for more traditional studio recording, but Session View is more suited to performance and composing on the fly.
