It is so much easier to get ideas down fast, without having to push record or set a tempo. Capture does just that. It allows you to play without recording and automatically remember all the notes you play. In this video, I am going to show you the ins and outs of capturing MIDI. This way you can use it like a pro and get more musical ideas down faster.

I found one way to get to samples faster is to add them to an Ableton collection.
