One of things that separates Ableton Live from other DAWs is the flexibility of working in two different views within the same project. Oftentimes, artists will begin composing a song in the session view organized by scenes, and then later record it into arrangement to further develop it. Both the session and arrangement views are valuable for taking the same music project from the studio to the stage, and having the flexibility of creating music using multiple workflows.
Arrangement view is similar to what you would experience with other recording software when tracking audio and MIDI, such as Garageband, Logic, Pro Tools, etc. The session view is ideal for performing your project live, or structuring and developing a new song using audio and MIDI clips within scenes.
The video tutorial below will walk you through the steps of recording from the session view into arrangement view in a project.
