Live 6 LE from Ableton is an entry-level version of Ableton Live 6, and is especially suitable for beginners and budget-conscious users. However, the program still utilizes the same approach to recording, producing and performing music as the full version of Live 6.

Live offers two main views work areas, the Session View and the Arrangement View. The Session View acts as a musical sketch and launch pad. Each cell in the Session View grid can hold a loop, recording, MIDI file, complete song or any other musical element. These ideas can be recorded on the fly or dragged in from the Browser, combined and played in any order.

The Arrangement View offers a timeline-based approach for traditional recording, MIDI sequencing, arranging, editing and other musical production tasks. Also, when improvising in the Session View, all actions can be recorded into the Arrangement View, where they can then be edited and perfected.

Live 6 LE is the perfect first step into computer music making for songwriters and performers new to digital audio recording, and creative DJs and remixers. The software excels at real-time time-stretching and re-pitching, with effortless looping and remixing. Also included are step-by-step tutorials and the software is compatible with most MIDI keyboards and controllers.
