Ableton has announced the availability of a playable iOS app designed specifically for the early stages of the music-making process.

Note offers multiple musical starting points with a curated selection of Ableton Live’s drum kits, melodic instruments and synth sounds. Music-makers can also create their own sound palette by recording the world around them into Note’s sampler instruments.

Those who want to take their ideas further can use Ableton Cloud to send their Note Sets straight to Live’s browser to pick up where they left off.

Note is a place to start ideas, experiment with sounds and find direction. 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.

Note for iPhone and iPad is now available at the App Store, priced 6.99 EUR / $5.99 USD / £4.99 GBP.
