ReWire

With ReWire, Live 9 Lite effectively becomes a giant plugin instrument within Pro Tools | First, giving you the best of both worlds!


Using Propellerhead Software’s ReWire protocol (installed automatically with either DAW), Pro Tools | First and Live 9 Lite can be brought together in a ‘Master/Slave’ configuration, with synchronised playback and streaming of MIDI and audio signals between the two.

Simply load Pro Tools | First, er, first to have it operate as the ReWire Master, followed by Live 9 Lite, which serves as the ReWire Slave. Now Pro Tools | First’s MIDI tracks can be used to trigger Live 9 Lite’s Impulse, Simpler and Drum Rack devices, the audio outputs of which are routed into Pro Tools | First’s mixer for playback and recording. Any audio clips playing in Live 9 Lite appear in the Pro Tools | First mixer, too, so you can advantage of the former’s powerful Session View, sample manipulation capabilities and Audio Effects.
