A Simple, Beautiful Notepad for Ableton Live

NTPD is a beautiful way to store notes directly in your Ableton Live sessions. Itโ€™s simple and easy to use but has some really useful features, like the ability to open a resizable floating note, change the colour of different notes to easily tell them apart and even the ability to automate the timing of the floating note to appear at particular points in the timeline.

Use NTPD to store ideas, session info, notes about synth patches, reminders or whatever else you can imagine, and it’s all right there in your Live Set.

NTPD is a simple, beautiful notepad for Ableton Live. It’s the perfect place to store notes about your music; reminders, session info, notes for collaborators or whatever else you like. But NPTD isn’t just any other notepad – it has some really useful features to make working with your notes even more effective.

  • Pop up notes into a resizable floating window so that your notes remain visible, even when switching to a different track.
  • Change the colour of individual notes to easily tell your notes apart at a glance.
  • Adjust the text size to make your notes more visible, perhaps during the heat of a live set.
  • Automate the timing of the pop-up note so you can have notes appear at certain points in the timeline or when a specific Clip is triggered.
