Live 9 Suite from Ableton is a solid update to the company's "think different" DAW software that is particularly popular with electronic and beat making creators. Two GUI views include a traditional, vertical-track display with time moving from left to right (Arrangement View), while the Session View is a place for experimentation that provides room for improvising, playing and performing with musical ideas without the constraints of the timeline. The top of the line version includes 9 instruments, 41 effects, over 3,000 sounds, along with Max for Live with its instruments and effects and further access to more devices.

Aside from the particular way of presenting the creative process, the software also includes standard features such as unlimited multi-track recording with up to 32-bit/192 kHz resolution with nondestructive editing and unlimited undo. Essential automatic plug-in delay compensation is available, along with multiple automation lanes and track freezing for conserving DSP. Warping and real-time, time-stretch processing can be applied to any clips, and unlimited instruments, audio effects and MIDI effects can be utilized per project.

MIDI sequencing, remote control instant mapping, and MIDI output to hardware MIDI devices allows the software to play a central role in any studio situation. New in Live 9 is an audio-to-MIDI functionality that can extract musical ideas from samples, or convert drum-breaks with the Drums-to-MIDI feature and reuse them with custom sounds. MIDI clock synchronization and ReWire ensures that the software functions with external hardware and software.

Max for Live, based on Max 7 by Cycling '74, comes with a collection of instruments, effects, and tools. Users can create custom versions along with the ability to access more devices from a community of artists who share their creations. Every Max for Live device is ready to use and can also be edited and customized to suit specific needs. Each device includes an edit button, which when engaged, displays how it was constructed and allows for further modification. Additionally, Max for Live comes with a collection of Live's native interface elements that allows for building devices that look and feel like Live.

The software supports multi-core and multiprocessor computer configurations, includes support for WAV, AIFF, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC file formats, and functions under both Mac and Windows operating systems.

Note: This product is an educational discounted version available to qualified, accredited academic institutions only (not for individual teachers or students). Proof of current educational status is required.

What's New in 9.7

  • New Slicing Options: Chop samples by beat divisions or regions, as well as manually or by transients (a new Simpler feature that works with or without Push)
  • New Drum Layout: 16 set velocity levels for playing and programming more dynamic beats
  • Hands-On Audio Routing: Select and record ins and outs directly from Push for sampling internal or external audio without disrupting your flow
  • Visual Feedback for Tighter Recordings: New display info shows clip phase and count-in so you can start and finish clip recordings more accurately
  • Hands-On Color Customization: Color pads, tracks and clips using Push to make your live performance easier
  • Better Playability: Pad sensitivity adapts to what you play, whether it’s drums or sustained chords
  • Better Sampling with Simpler: Simpler has been completely overhauled with a new interface, warping, slicing, and new analog-modeled filters built in conjunction with Cytomic. Slice samples across the keyboard, play single hits, or warp long samples so that they always stay in time with your song
  • Improved waveforms and coloring: New waveforms show more detail and zoom and scroll smoothly. To help keep your Sets organized, new clips take their track’s color, and tracks are now automatically colored by default
  • Peak and RMS Meters: Updated meters show both peak and RMS, to indicate both sudden changes in level as well as perceived loudness. This makes it easier to control the dynamics of both individual tracks and your overall mix
  • Analog-Modeled Filters: Based on classic vintage hardware models that will self-resonate, feedback, and distort beautifully. These filters were built in collaboration with Cytomic and are included in Simpler, Sampler, Operator, and Auto Filter
  • More Sounds, Samples, and Drums: The library of included sounds has been updated to get you making music even faster. This includes new drum kits, presets using the new analog-modeled filters, hundreds more one shots, and new audio clips
  • New Max Essentials: The new Max Essentials Pack includes three stunning new synthesizers with wide-ranging sound design possibilities and a streamlined set of controls
  • Play in Time with Link: Jam with Live and a growing collection of other music applications. Link is a new technology that keeps you in time over a wireless network
