I spend most of my music making time in front of Ableton Live. It’s stable and Session View lets me flesh out ideas before I head to arrange. Most importantly, once you spend time to learn the program it’s fun to use. Ableton has kicked off it’s 10 year birthday celebration. We are lucky because the Berliner’s seem to not know that on Birthday’s they get gifts not give them! But hey I’m not going to tell them. They are giving away 10 free Artist Live packs to any Live 8 owner. Go get them here: ableton.com/able10-artist-packs
“To celebrate our Able10 anniversary, we’re giving away 10 free, exclusive Live Packs from Ableton artists. Take a look inside these songs and sounds and see how these exceptional artists work their Live mojo.” – Ableton
But what if your late to the party and your still not sure if your the Ableton type of guy? Lucky for you there is now an inexpensive way into the club. The all new “Live Intro” is a not so shabby version of Live for $99. This is now my recommendation for anyone who asks me, “I’m starting to make music what should I use?”.
So what else is on tap for the party? Discounts on upgrades for current Live users and the geeks will be happy to know Max For Live will be out November 23. Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!
