Ableton Live is about making music; for composition, songwriting, recording, production, remixing, and live performance. Live's nonlinear, intuitive flow, alongside powerful real-time editing and flexible performance options, make it a unique studio tool and a favorite with live performers. If you'd rather be "making music" than just "using music software," Ableton Live is for you. Live 8, the latest version, includes a wealth of new techniques and improvements with a new groove engine, revamped warping, live looping, new effects, crossfades in the Arrangement View, and a reworked MIDI editor.

Ou.. Like at my Mac. Ableton is open, I started doing music on it, and then after 5-10 minutes it's closes. After this is opening Error Console, and i'll open Ableton again. But it's annoying, and i hope that Live, make faster a free update with support for Lion.

On DP 4 Ableton Live 8.2.1 quits announcing :The folder “Company Support Dir” was not found.
Some forums claim that this can be solved by deleting an outdated Melodine plugin.
There's no Melodine on my DP 4

I tried ableton with sapphire 6 usb interface in lion. No sound at all. Guess it's mostly the interface driver, though.

8.2.1 works on the official release (July 20th)
OS X Lion 10.7 (11a494) It installs as (11A511)
Midi works well with computer keyboard input but it's extrimely buggy with MIDI keyboard!!!!
*It also renders the MIDI keyboard unusable to other applications. The computer has to be restarted.

*The MIDI bug doesn't actually come from Ableton Live it self. It's a bug in Lion concerning third party apps.
It works fine on Logic/Mainstage/GarageBand
The work around is to open the Audio MiDI Set up from Lion's Utilities folder, test the keyboard & keep it open. It works fine then.

Works if you either turn off multicore processor support, or try the latest beta…

Ableton Live 8.2.6 is out. 8.2.5 was released earlier, and is already supposed to provide OS X 10.7.x compatibility.
