Ableton Live 9 out – Live Stream by Tom Cosm

1433 days after Live 8 saw the light of day, Ableton finally releases version 9 today. That's a lot of days for software. Now that the wait is over, the question is: Will you upgrade right away, wait a while or not upgrade at all? That is, if you haven't made use of the recent upgrade offer and already got your Live or Suite 9 license sitting in your account. Then hurry over to Ableton's site and download it now. :)

While Live 8 was not very stable at first, I must say, Live 9 has hardly crashed for me in the last four months or so (full disclosure: I had a developers beta since sometime in 2011 because I worked as a tech support at Ableton). I personally can't say, that all the features I wanted realised made it into Live 9, but I love the new audio to MIDI conversion functions, the reworked EQ8, compressor, the Glue, the improved workflow... If you're unsure, what to do, you can download the fully functional trial and have a go for 30 days to make up your mind.

Push can be preordered from today and should ship in 2 to 4 weeks.

Tom Cosm will do a live stream from 11 am to 1 pm UTC as he attempts to perform with Push and give tutorials at the same time. You can watch right here:

    Yepp! Der Download des Upgrades auf die 9er Suite läuft und Push ist pre ordered. Leider schon 12-16 Wochen Lieferzeit (sic!). Da ich seit ca. Nov. 2012 die Beta verwendet habe und sagen muss, dass sie sehr stabil läuft, freue ich mich nun auf die neuen features und neue Sounds. Und währenddessen steigt die Spannung wegen Push ;-)
    Das schöne ist: die vielen guten Sounds aus Live 8 gehen nicht verloren. Die 8er library ist integrierbar und das klappt auch gut. Grade im Gitarrenbereich hat die 8er Suite weitaus viel mehr Presets zu bieten, die auch echt klasse sind. Gut sind natürlich jetzt die vielen neuen Packs. Leider nicht so gut ist, dass man immer noch nicht erkennen kann, wann es ein Update eines der Packs gibt. Da muss man immer umständlich im URL des Downloads nach der Release-Nummer spähen. Das ginge sicherlich einfacher. Kommt vielleicht noch mal hinzu. Viel Spaß allen Usern!!!
