Following the concept of generating ideas, playing with sound, and finding direction, Ableton just presented ‘Note‘, their new iOS app designed to help with the early stages of the music-making process. As part of your regular music-making routine, it can help you hone the skill of starting or ease into a creative headspace at the start of a session.
Available now for iPhone and iPad, Note includes a selection of Ableton Live’s drum kits, synth sounds and melodic instruments, as well as effects such as reverb, delay and chorus-ensemble. Users can tap away on the 25-pad melody grid or piano roll, and make beats using the 16-pad percussion grid. They can also record up to 60 seconds of their own audio straight into the app’s sampler.
Connect Note to Ableton Cloud to send your five favorite Note Sets directly to Live’s browser, and pick up where you left off. Ableton Cloud is freely available for every edition of Live 11.2.5, including the free trial.
Note is currently available from the App Store for €6.99 / $5.99 / £4.99.
