HowAudio Ableton Live 7 Essentials: Recording and Editing

MIDI recording with your computer keyboard By Cliff Truesdell

Ableton Live 7 is the latest installment in this amazing music software.  From creation to production as well as performance, Live 7 is much more than a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), it is also a MIDI Controller, a trigger device and a playable instrument.  Live 7 offers many improvements and additions from the previous version (Live 6). 

In this tutorial, Cliff Truesdell demonstrates the creative potential of this software that has made it an essential tool for so many of today's musical artists.

In this clip, HowAudio host Cliff Truesdell takes a look at MIDI recording using your computer's keyboard to play and record performances with MIDI instruments, including Live's included instrumentation and any third party audio unit or VST instruments you may have. This is a great feature to have especially when you don't have a MIDI instrument handy when recording.
