Ableton Note for iPhone iPad iPod Touch

Ableton Note for iPhone iPad iPod Touch

Note is a place to form ideas, experiment with sounds and find direction. Get your ideas out or play until inspiration hits using a selection of Ableton Live's drum kits, synths and melodic instruments. Or create your own sound palette by recording the sounds around you into Note's sampler instruments using your phone's microphone.

Take your ideas further by sending your projects to Live without leaving the app using Ableton Cloud. Open projects from Live's browser and keep working – you can edit all your MIDI notes, and all your samples and sounds from Note are exactly the same. Ableton Note users will receive a free license for Ableton Live Lite – simple, intuitive software used by musicians, producers and DJs around the world to write, record, and perform.
