Enjoy all the enhancements and new features of this loop-based software sequencer with this upgrade.
Whether you own Live LE or Live Intro, they've given you a pretty good taste of what Ableton Live software can do. With this upgrade, you can now incorporate all it has to offer into your every music production. Version 8 enhances the Ableton vision of creative, realtime digital music with a wealth of improved techniques, effects, and workflow improvements including:
New groove engine
Groove patterns can add life and swing to straight sequences. Live 8's new groove engine lets you apply groove patterns in real time, extract grooves from audio or MIDI sources, and quantize audio and MIDI in real time. The upgrade also comes with a new groove library.
New warping engine
Live 8 introduces a new, more direct way of working with warping and some important Warp Mode enhancements. You can now warp audio events by adjusting the events themselves on the timeline. Beats Mode has been updated, and there's a completely new Complex Warp Mode. Plus, you can slice audio files to MIDI tracks based on transients.
A much-requested feature, the Ableton Looper effect gives you classic sound-on-sound looping without the limitations of a hardware device. Looper is set up for remote operation, so you can record, overdub, undo, and more without touching the computer.
Ableton Live 8 software includes five powerful effects not found in the LE or Intro versions: Vocoder, Multiband Dynamics, Overdrive, Limiter, and Frequency Shifter. These effects cover all the well-known aspects of these devices, but really shine due to some innovative features and enhancements from the Ableton labs.
