I made a great Downloadable PDF for the Ableton Live keyboard shortcuts I use the most. I don’t really go into the super basic shortcuts like copy and paste and etc but listed more unique ones. They are listed in order of how much I use them. If you don’t want to download the PDF and sign up for my Ableton tips newsletter, you can view the shortcuts in the table below. BTW, I send out the ABLETON tips newsletter about 2 times per month and you can unsubscribe anytime.

I made this PDF so easy to print and set next to you computer. It was real fun to make and I actually learned some new ones like CTL-ALT-L to raise and lower the piano or audio effects tab (super helpful right?). I am constantly opening that thing up and down. I hope it can help speed up your Ableton workflow and help you make more awesome music.
