Overall Satisfaction with Ableton Live

Ableton Live is used for making background music for all the corporate events in our organization. Ableton's amazing features which include session view and arrangement view quickly helps us produce background music for corporate events and then we can embed the music in the music video before publishing it.

This software is being used by very limited departments in our organization which deal with the music and video productions.
  • Session View: This is the biggest advantage of Ableton. It provides you this view in which you can create different tracks for the same part of the song. For example:- If you are making the chorus of the song, you can save one thread. Now if you want to try and listen to a different drum set in a new thread, you can simply do that and listen to the new track while preserving the older one. Once you are satisfied with what you're listening, simple record the same in arrangement view and you are done. You can switch to the arrangement view and listen to the final song.
  • Pre-installed instruments and loops:- Ableton's library which is included with the software itself while you purchase it is amazing. I bet you will ever need third-party plugins for it. It comes loaded with hundreds of loops and number of instruments which are completely professional and free to use.
  • Amazing Graphical User Interface:- Even if you're a beginner in this field, Ableton can be learned within a few hours. The basic functionality of this software is very easy to understand and use. Of course, advanced stuff comes with practice but the basic functioning can be learned and within a few hours you are producing your own music.
  • Price Tag:- Ableton is one of the expensive Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) in the market. You can find many DAW's at a lesser price tag and pretty much same functionality. However, the quality that this software produces is unmatched which is the sole reason why professional music produces prefer Ableton.
  • High computer specs:- You will need good computer specification for running this software smoothly else it brings lags and ultimately the experience becomes not so very good. So this is one of the important points before considering this software for production.
  • I am not sure about the ROI from this software, but the music it makes helps us make the videos highly user-friendly and intuitive. The content delivery is maximized to its limits. Overall the people are able to understand the content in a much better form which ultimately helps the company. I cannot specify this in figures but yes, it is helping us and our people in a number of ways.
These software are not direct competitors of Ableton, but yes we use them in conjunction with Ableton. Filmora is used for video production and Audacity is used for Audio Editing. So we use all the three software for getting our work done. This combination is highly successful as it contains all the software which is used by an organization for making corporate videos end to end.
Ableton can be used in all the scenarios where music production is required. Whether it be professional studios or if it is home productions. It can be used almost anywhere as the features of this software can fit almost in any place. It is also used by professional teams in big companies for marketing and presentation music.

I cannot think of any scenario where this is not well suited. If you're making music the professional way, Ableton is the ladder to success.
