The music never has to stop in Live. Record audio and MIDI on the fly, drop in loops and samples, add effects and swap sounds without ever hitting the stop button: everything happens in real time. Once you have begun your project, use a wealth of tools to manipulate your audio and midi. The Groove engine allows you to apply groove patterns in real time, extract grooves from audio or MIDI sources or quantize audio and MIDI in real time. An extensive library of grooves is included with Live. Warp audio events by adjusting the position of beats on the timeline. Plus you can slice audio files to MIDI tracks based on transients.
