Ableton Live 7

Ableton Live 7

A new version of my favorite sequencer Ableton Live has been announced today! It will be available “sometime in 2007″. Looking at all the new features on the Ableton website it’s clear this is a major upgrade. Once again they have listened to it’s users and addressed many of the feature requests I have been hearing. I’m actually very surprised at all these additions. Here are some of the standout new features:

  • Enhanced Audio Engine
  • New Compressor
  • Sidechaining (Built into the new Compressor, Gate and Auto Filter)
  • All new Drum Rack
  • High Quality Modes for Saturator, Dynamic Tube and Operator
  • Improved EQ Eight
  • Spectrum – a new spectrum analyzer
  • Time Signature Changes
  • Multiple Automation Lanes
  • Rex Support
  • Tempo nudge
  • Better hardware integration

Ableton also announced new Ableton Instruments called Analog, Tension and Electric. These were created with various partners and is available separately or in a new product called Ableton Suite.

I highly encourage everyone to go over to and check out the new features up close. There is already a video for the new Drum Rack which really explains everything it can do.
