Ableton Announces Free OSX Update for LIVENew audio sequencer designed for live performance
The way LIVE handles loops and samples, sound files are time-stretched and compressed in real time while being read from the hard disk. As a result, even long recordings with unstable tempos can play in sync with the current session tempo or an external clock source.
Users can record, loop, effect, resample, and launch sounds without stopping the music. Other features include:
- The ability to jam live, log the action and edit afterwards
- Play arbitrary samples in sync with song tempo
- Stretch and pitch audio while playing from disk
- Assemble chains of fully automatable Live effects and VST plug-ins
- Control every function with hotkeys and MIDI
LIVE is currently available in the United States from MIDIMAN dealers (www.midiman.com) for a MSRP US$ 299.95. For more information go to www.ableton.com.
