Ableton’s Scale is a powerful MIDI effect that allows you to constrain every note on your keyboard to a specified scale. For example, if you wanted all of your keys to play only notes within an A minor scale, Ableton’s Scale can do this.
In this tutorial we’ll take a look at how Scale works and map out some of our own scales.

This video is a brief explanation and demonstration of exactly what Global Quantization is and what it can do to in Ableton.

Global Quantization is a powerful Ableton feature that can be used in session view. It's one of the elements that really sets Ableton apart from other DAWs and can change your workflow and overall engagement in your music making experience. It can be used on stage for live shows and can also bring that performance feel in to your beat making process in the studio.
