Ableton announced "Live 10"
Music producers and performers have waited for a new update to Ableton Live, and today Ableton Live 10 has been officially announced. The new update includes a host of new devices, a serious upgrade on composition, mixing, and browsing workflows, new default sound libraries, Max for Live built-in, and more. On the hardware side, Push is getting an update as well.
Software: Ableton Live 10
Release Date: Q1 2018
Price: $99 (Intro) / $449 (Standard) / $749 (Suite)
Promotion: Ableton is running an upgrade discount – all Live 9 editions are 20% off, and any new purchase of Live 9 will get a free upgrade to Live 10 when it comes out
One of the main focuses of this new update seems to be Ableton wanting to improve the way that most people spend their time in the software. This means that the user interface, MIDI editing, browsing, and mixing all have seen substantial upgrades:
Live’s interface has been updated to be cleaner and clearer with sharper graphics and refined colors. And a range of optimized themes improves visibility in all environments.
Capture (video above) recalls an idea after it has been played and turns it into a MIDI clip with feel and groove intact—a fast, intuitive way to turn spontaneous inspiration into music.
Multiple MIDI clip editing shows the content of two or more clips in one view for better control of the musical relationships in a song: Not: Click on any picture above to head over to DJTECHTOOLS.com for more detailed
