Free OSX Update for Sequencing Program LIVE

Real-time compression and time stretching By DMN Staff Writer
A free Mac OSX update of LIVE, a new audio sequencer designed specifically for live performance, was announced by music software company Ableton.

OSX is ideal for real-time performance-oriented applications such as LIVE, "due to its stability and low-latency audio streaming solutions for the production and processing environment, " said Ableton founder and CEO Gerhard Behles.

Sound files in LIVE are time-stretched and compressed in real time, while being read from the hard disk. This enables long recordings with unstable tempos to 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 of every function with hotkeys and MIDI

LIVE is available in the United States from MIDIMAN dealers ( for a MSRP US$ 299.95.
