Ableton Live is an audio sequencer and digital audio workstation for Windows and Mac OS X. Ableton Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing and mastering. It is also used by DJs, as it offers a suite of controls for beatmatching, crossfading, and other effects used by turntablists, and was one of the first music applications to automatically beatmatch songs.

Live keeps everything in sync and works in real-time, so you can play and modify your musical ideas without interrupting the creative flow.
