Start new musical ideas with a curated selection of sounds and effects. Play beats and melodic parts, sample your world, and continue your tracks in Ableton Live.

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.

Begin with a beat:
• Choose from 56 Drum Sampler kits
• Tap out a beat using the 16-pad grid
• Quantize your beat to fix loose timing
• Nudge notes to correct mistakes
• Add more layers of rhythm
• Create beat repetitions with Note Repeat
• Change parameters to shape your sound
• Experiment with effects or apply swing for variations

Start with a melody:
• Choose from 261 synth sounds and 36 Melodic Sampler instruments
• Play your melody or chord progression with either the 25-pad grid or piano roll
• Set a key and scale to get instantly harmonic results
• Overdub more layers of harmony
• Change parameters to shape your sound
• Add effects to experiment with sound design

Sample your environment:
• Create your own kits by recording percussive sounds into Note’s Drum Sampler
• Record tonal sounds to create your own Melodic Sampler instruments
• Manipulate your samples by cutting, filtering or repitching them
• Shape or transform your sounds with effects
• Import your own samples or audio directly from videos

Capture improvisations:
• Play something, then tap the Capture button to keep it
• Play at a tempo that feels comfortable and Note will detect it
• Note will recognize the length of the phrase and create a loop

• Quantize it, add to it, or change the sound
• Connect MIDI hardware to play keys and change the sound of your instruments

Create variations:
• Note features a grid-based Session View layout
• Double your loops to create variation within clips
• Duplicate your clips and create different versions of your ideas
• Create eight tracks with up to eight clips on eight scenes

Great app, please add this in future updates 👍

Great app but many things could be inproved. For instance, you should be able to browse patches with arrows or swipes without getting a drop down menu - it destroys the workflow. Also please add more effects from the Live library, and consider people playing Note on a phone keed some proper zoom tools to make precision edits to automation and midi. Being able to zoom out / in on the mixer view would be nice to see everything playing. Good job for now, Ableton 👍

So much potential in this APP, but there is so much latency on the pads, that it is barely usable.

Denne app, kan simpelthen for lidt. Er ihvertfald ikke god til sangskrivning - mangler en audiooptager - man kan lave beat, lidt bass og lidt synth, men det hele er meget begrænset og ligger ikke noget til min kreativitet og sangskrivning
