Ableton Live changed the way we thought about music software, taking you away from linear cut and paste thinking and letting you try out ideas, improvise and create freely. Moving away from the traditional 'DAW' sequencer layout, Ableton encourages DJs, Producers and Live Performers to manipulate and layer their musical ideas like no other software.
Live is software for creating musical ideas, turning them into finished songs, and even taking them onto the stage. With two views – the classic Arrangement View, where musical ideas are laid out along a timeline, and the unique Session View, where you can improvise and quickly experiment with musical ideas – Live is a fast, fun, intuitive way to make music.

Ableton Push 2 represents a natural extension of Ableton's philosophy - providing a hands-on music making experience that transcends the traditional approach of creating electronic music. By utilising velocity-sensitive pads, comprehensive transport controls and a responsive colour screen, Push 2 is by far the most intuitive and fun controller to maximize the potential of Ableton software.
Arpeggiate, arrange, make beats and play with a controller that has become an intrinsic part of many bands and live performers setups. Using Push, you can launch clips and scenes, tweak device parameters and control mixer levels and sends – Live can capture every movement. When you’re ready, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Live – the software that was powering your work the whole time.
