Ableton | Netherland
Say "Ableton" to DJs, electronic musicians, songwriters, producers, and performers all over the world and they're likely to nod their head in agreement. Virtually synonymous with their flagship digital audio workstation, Live, Ableton has made quite the name for themselves among a continually growing community of musicians. Renowned for Live's ability to perform just as well onstage as in the studio, the software features an innovative "scene" window for building, arranging, and triggering parts of songs, ultimately clearing the way for even more intuitive songwriting. Also boasting easy-to-use MIDI mapping, Ableton Live is the creative performer's DAW.
