Ableton Live blurred the lines between DAW and instrument right out of the gate with its first release in 2001. Augmenting a fully functional multitrack recorder and mixer with a sampler, sequencer and virtual instruments, Live also did away with the notion that songwriting, digital productions and live electronic performance have to happen linearly. The revolutionary Session View mode and Clip Launcher let you tweak and drop elements in and out on the fly, creating a more open-world approach to music making that's equally powerful in the studio and on the stage. This sort of spontaneous environment begs for hands-on control, and that's how the market for specialized and even dedicated Ableton Live controllers was spawned. This handpicked collection of the best Ableton controllers and hardware by Akai, Novation, Livid Instruments, M-Audio and other leading manufacturers aims to give you tactile command over Live's sequencer, clip launcher, scenes, mixer, and everything else this comprehensive software has to offer.
