Digital Subscriptions > MusicTech > Ableton Live 10 > WORKFLOW AND THE ARRANGEMENT VIEW IN ABLETON LIVE 10


Last time, we looked at Live 10’s new and updated devices; now Martin Delaney explores the many tweaks to the workflow and Arrangement View in the latest update to Ableton’s top-drawer DAW…

A bleton Live 10 has some great new standout features – the Wavetable synthesiser being an obvious example – but it’s also packed with tiny tweaks designed to improve the day-to-day user experience. The Arrangement View benefits from this in particular. You could argue (and I have, a few times) that the Arrangement View has lagged behind the timeline tools of other major DAWs such as Logic and Cubase. Of course, that’s understandable, because Live has the all-important Session View as well, and they don’t… but we want it all, don’t we? As much as the Session View is fun and sexy to use and great for live performance, there comes a time when we need to get locked into the Arrangement View, and for anybody who has used Logic et al, it can feel severely lacking. So, back to the point: Live 10 includes many changes and additions that’ll make your Arrangement View time faster and more productive.


Now it’s time to introduce a word that can drive some people crazy – workflow. In itself, that simply describes the process we use to get the job done. But it’s controversial, because it’s become something of a cliché, especially in tutorials and ads. In the creative world, the focus on workflow and efficiency can be seen as counterintuitive; I personally don’t want to think about ‘workflow’ when I’m being creative, I want to work how I want to work, and if I’m going slow, that’s okay.
