Live will match your tempo and timing, and start your melody or groove in a perfect loop. You can also use Capture to progress your songs: add new parts or overdub MIDI into existing clips without breaking your flowjust press Capture after youve played it right.
Edit Multipler MIDI Clips
Create drums and bass, or chords and melody in tandem. Work with multiple MIDI clips across multiple tracks within a single viewin both Session and Arrangement. Now you can edit smarter and take better control of the musical relationships in your song.

The Arrangement View has been optimized for quick creative editing and more efficient song creation. Easily stretch a clip, slide its content or create audio fades with new clip interactions that work directly in the Arrangement. Automate with greater control using grid snapping and other improved breakpoint interactions.
Focus instantly on what you need to with quick keyboard shortcuts: toggle automation visibility for all tracks, zoom in and out of selections of your song, nudge clips, and even make audio edits like reversing samples.
Keep your go-to devices, plug-ins and samples close at hand: create color-coded collections and access them instantly in the browser.
Notes now trigger even if playback starts in the middle, so you don't need to start the clip from the beginning to hear a long pad, for example.
Instantly select the right routing by labeling Lives inputs and outputs to match the instruments and hardware in your studio.
With its improved gain range you can more effectively use Utility for volume automation, keeping the mixer free. The Bass Mono feature in Utility and EQ Eight's extended 10Hz low frequency range give you more precise bass control.

Been using another DAW for a number of years and was really happy with it. However, from reading reviews and watching tutorials online I decided to switch to Live 10. Like any change it takes a bit of getting used to. However, once you open up to its capabilities, it's easy to see why it's the go to choice of production software, for so many producers and artists alike. Making music is easier with a fantastic range of music instruments along with easily adding on sound effects as well as ones for midi. Wise investment that will see you learning new ways to create music on a daily basis.
