Ableton Live 7 på gång
« skrivet: 08.10.2007, 08:38:22 »
Fick ett mail från Ableton precis:

We are excited to announce a range of new products to be released
before the end of 2007: Ableton Live 7, several new add-on
instruments and Ableton Suite, a product that combines Live 7 with a
choice selection of instruments in one comprehensive, discounted


Version 7 renews the core of Live.

* The enhanced audio engine improves fidelity with 64-bit mix summing,
  POW-r dithering, optimized sample-rate conversion and other

* The new Compressor device integrates three compression models, one
  of which is based on a feedback design commonly found in the most
  praised vintage compressors.

* Fully integrated side-chaining capability is available for the new
  Compressor, as well as Gate and Auto Filter.

* High-Quality modes have been added to Operator, Dynamic Tube and
  Saturator for anti-aliased processing and reduction of typical
  "digital" artifacts.

* EQ Eight has an improved user interface and a 64 bit mode for
  increased accuracy.

* The new Spectrum analyzer provides visual feedback for any audio
  signals within Live (and it looks really cool!).

* The MIDI engine has been reworked to minimize timing error (jitter)
  of recorded MIDI.

* Hardware integration has been streamlined—hardware synthesizers and
  effects can now be inserted into device chains just like software

* New memory management technology allows users of large sample
  libraries, such as Ableton's new sampled instruments or third-party
  libraries imported via Sampler, to run an impressive number of
  instruments at the same time. This happens automatically, with no
  setup changes required.

* New audio and MIDI fact sheets explain exactly how signals are (or
  are not) being modified when using specific features in Live and
  provide tips for achieving the highest quality results.

Live 7 brings the features most frequently requested by our users.

* Time signature changes can be inserted in the Arrangement timeline
  and tied to Session scenes.

* Warped and unwarped video can be exported to files.

* Multiple automation lanes per track can be displayed and edited at
  the same time.

* A new "tempo nudge" function makes it easier to synchronize to live
  musicians or DJs.

* REX files can be dragged, dropped and played just like WAV or AIFF

* Live, Operator and Sampler have received many small improvements and
  additions based on users' requests.

The new "Drum Rack" streamlines beat production via an easy
drag-and-drop interface and brings endless creative possibilities.

* A familiar drum pad interface allows dragging and dropping of
  samples, instruments and effects.

* Every pad can have its own Sampler, Simpler, Operator, or any other
  virtual instrument or plug-in, and its own individual effects chain.

* The slicing feature fills a Drum Rack with the individual hits from
  REX or audio loops. The original sequence is represented as a MIDI
  clip, making it easy to replace, reshuffle or re-record the events
  and process them individually.

* A Drum Rack can have its own sends, returns and submixes.

* Every pad can be shown as a mixer channel in the Session View.

* Each drum can be dragged out of its Rack for isolated pattern
  control and editing.


The new add-on instruments are the result of Ableton's collaboration
with leading industry partners. The palette covers physical models of
electric pianos, analog synthesizers and string instruments as well as
multi-mic/multilayer sampled acoustic drums, drum machines,
orchestral strings, brass, woodwinds and percussion. The instruments
integrate tightly into Live, both in terms of workflow and resource

* TENSION is a physical modeling string synthesizer based on the
  advanced technology found in String Studio from Applied Acoustics
  Systems (AAS, http://www.applied-acoustics.com). Through the use of
  mathematical models, Tension simulates each component of a stringed
  instrument. Tweak everything from how the string is played—with a
  pick, bow or hammer—to the size and type of instrument body used.
  Create incredibly accurate reproductions of real instruments or
  design otherworldly hybrids, all within Live's familiar working

* ELECTRIC offers the much sought-after sounds of classic electric
  pianos. Based on AAS's acclaimed Lounge Lizard, Electric uses the
  same advanced physical modeling synthesis technology and integrates
  perfectly into Live's workflow. Because Electric uses synthesis,
  users can dive inside and play with the guts of the instrument—the
  hammers, tines, pickups and more—to achieve just that right amount
  of melancholy or bark and bite.

* ANALOG emulates the unique circuitry and irresistible tweakability
  of vintage analog synthesizers, employing the renowned physical
  modeling technology of AAS's Ultra Analog. Analog is a creative
  workhorse that features versatile alias-free oscillators, multimode
  filters, syncable LFOs, looping envelope generators and much more.
  Able to produce everything from silky pad sweeps to earth-shaking
  bass, Analog is also completely integrated in Live's familiar

* SESSION DRUMS is a meticulously multisampled library of acoustic
  drums that reproduces the nuances of a recording session and puts
  you in the engineer's seat. Session Drums gives you full control of
  the close mics for each drum as well as the overheads and room mics,
  so you can craft the perfect drum mix for your songs. Session Drums
  also includes stereo kits appropriate for various musical styles and
  a variety of MIDI grooves to speed up the production process.
  Session Drums was created in collaboration with ChocolateAudio
  (http://www.chocolateaudio.com), makers of the critically acclaimed
  "Imperial Drums."

* DRUM MACHINES offers a choice selection of classic drum machines,
  meticulously sampled and programmed by Ableton content developer
  PureMagnetik (http://www.puremagnetik.com), to faithfully reproduce
  the original sounds. Drum Machines is easily tweaked with cleverly
  mapped controls, allowing users to experiment with the inner
  workings of the instrument and adjust to taste.

  collections of sampled orchestral instruments featuring a number of
  variations and articulations, created in partnership with SONiVOX
  (http://www.sonivoxmi.com), a leading provider of premium sampled
  instruments. Recorded with the expertise of world-class musicians,
  engineers and producers, these collections put a world of authentic
  symphonic possibilities at the composer's fingertips. The Orchestral
  Strings, Brass, Woodwinds and Percussion collections take advantage
  of complete integration with Live and its new resource-efficient
  sample engine, allowing users to work with an impressive number of
  instruments in their compositions.

* ESSENTIAL INSTRUMENT COLLECTION 2 is a multi-gigabyte collection of
  meticulously sampled and selected instruments, offering a choice
  selection of acoustic and electric pianos, guitars, bass, drums,
  orchestral strings, brass, woodwinds and more. Version 2 adds
  acoustic and electronic drums as well as presets optimized for
  better sound quality and faster loading.

Ableton instruments. This attractively priced package provides a
comprehensive set of musical tools, all smoothly integrated into
Live's acclaimed workflow. The download version of Ableton Suite

Ja sådant är ju alltid djävligt surt. Missade själv på samma sätt när 6:an kom. Några veckor tidigare hade jag gjort om min lightversion till en 5:a och missade den fria uppgraderingen.
Å andra sidan är inte 99 Euro så mycket att bråka om men då man nu är sugen på även det som finns i sviten blir det ju genast dyrare men jag har aldrig haft vare sig operator eller sampler tidigare heller. Intstrumentcolection har jag ju och IC 2 får man ju i alla fall om man lägger till ett par hundra till den boxade versionen.
Kommer definitivt att uppgradera men det känns alltid surt att missa en friuppgradering med några veckor så där.

Hehe... Jag skrev till deras suport och grät.
Och tror ni inte de gick med på att uppgradera mig till 7:an gratis. Ja inte mig alltså men mitt Ableton Live 6.

Tack för det Ableton.  :D
