Digital Subscriptions > MusicTech > Jun-18 > GET THE BEST OUT OF LIVE LITE IN ABLETON LIVE LITE


When talking about Ableton, we tend to focus on Live Suite, with all its bells and whistles. This time around Martin Delaney gives some love to its underappreciated ‘limited’ versions – Live Intro and Lite…


When we’re discussing Ableton Live, it’s easy to fixate on Live 10 Suite, it’s the best option – if you can afford it. Below that is Live 10 Standard, still well-featured but without some of the extras. Then there’s the very affordable Live 10 Intro, which although limited is still totally worthwhile. Still, there’s another one, Live Lite, which is licensed to manufacturers so they can add value to product bundles.

Over the years, Lite’s been packaged with all kinds of controllers and interfaces; currently, you’ll find it bundled with products from names such as Arturia, Novation, Focusrite and Korg. Hopefully this will clear up some confusion about the different versions and encourage any non-users reading this to wonder if maybe they’ve got a version of Lite already, or remember that they registered it long ago but haven’t got round to using it!


Live Intro and Lite are both limited versions, but they’re not the same. Lite is slightly more restricted and only available with authorisation from a third party product purchase, while Intro is available as a full separate purchase, or included with Push.

About MusicTech

Though it was only a few issues ago that we contemplated the future of music, we came to the realisation that the future is now! With more effects at our disposal than ever before, we tour the modern arsenal of plug-in effects, tools and software that you might not even realise existed! Elsewhere, we speak to the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff about his production and DJing ethos, and join Detroit-based artist Klayton, whose love of 80s electronic and metal bands has borne many fruitful projects, not to mention an amazing studio. We put Hans Zimmer Strings to the test, as well as a slew of new pieces of gear and software in our expanded reviews section. Additionally, there’s 4 new tutorials for Live, Logic, Cubase and Pro Tools, brand-new tips, retrospectives and our Essential Guide series draws to a close with a 101 to recording. We hope you enjoy the issue!
