Ableton Live 9 Standard

General Sequencer from Ableton belonging to the Live 9 series.

Ableton has announced two new music-making products: Live 9, the music creation software, and Push - Ableton's first hardware instrument for Live.

Live 9

 
 

The most important new features at a glance:

  • Session automation: In Session View, automation can now be recorded in real time directly within clips. Automation can move together with clips between Arrangement and Session View.
  • Find sounds: Live's new browser puts all instruments, effects, samples, and plug-ins in oneview. Drag and drop folders from anywhere on your computer, search as you type and navigate from the keyboard.
  • Discover new sounds: Live comes with a selection (3,500 in the Suite edition) of sounds, which were crafted with the help of 40 artists, sound designers and engineers. All sounds feature Macro controls for access to their most meaningful musical parameters.
  • Effects: The Glue Compressor is a new effect - a model of a 1980s console bus compressor. EQ Eight has an audition mode for isolating frequencies and an expandable spectrum display. The Gate and Compressor effects feature a Gain Reduction view which shows changes in signal level over time.
  • Extract music from samples: Live's new Harmony, Melody and Drums to MIDI tools extract MIDI directly from the favorite parts of your music collection. You can also sing, tap a rhythm, play any solo instrument, then use Melody or Drums to MIDI to turn your recordings into MIDI clips that you can edit and reuse with a sound.
  • Edit the details: Transpose, reverse and stretch MIDI notes or warp clip automation and add curves to automation envelopes.
  • Max for Live - now in Suite: The Suite edition of Live 9 comes with Max for Live and its instruments, effects and tools. Max for Live itself includes 24 new devices such as a convolution reverb, new drum synthesizer instruments, MIDI echo as well as reworked versions of classics such as Step Sequencer and Buffer Shuffler 2.


Pricing & Availability:

Prices start at $99 / €79 (Live 9 Intro download version), $449 / €349 (Live 9 Standard download version) and $749 / €599 (Live 9 Suite download version). Upgrades to Live 9 Standard / Live 9 Suite vary in price depending on the Ableton products you already own. More details at: www.ableton.com/shop

Ableton Live 9 will be available in the first quarter of 2013. Beta testing will begin shortly.

Push

 

Ableton presents a new hardware instrument "designed to solve an old problem: how to make a song from scratch." Push provides control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds and structure, powered by Ableton Live running on your computer.

 

The most important features at a glance:

  • Play and sequence beats: Push's 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive multi-color pads can be used to play, step sequence, and navigate within rhythm patterns. The 11 touch-sensitive endless encoders can control device parameters, adjust velocity, nudge timing and more.
  • Play melodies and chords: Push "folds" a keyboard's worth of notes into its 64 pads, with different pad colors showing the key center and other notes in the key. This allows you to play in every key using the same finger patterns, move between keys at the touch of a button...
  • Improvise with song structure: Using a few buttons to trigger clips, overdub notes, move between song materials and variations is designed to let Ableton Live itself become a playable instrument.
  • Move from creation to arrangement: Push offers both the instrument to start creating music, and the software to finish off a track. Everything created with Push is laid out in Ableton Live on your computer.
  • Includes Ableton Live 9: Push includes Ableton Live 9 Intro and works with any edition of Ableton Live 9 (Intro, Standard, Suite). All the included instruments, effects and sounds, as well as your own libraries, can be played, tweaked, and personalized.
  • Designed by Ableton, built by Akai Professional: Push features 64 pressure and velocity-sensitive RGB (multi-colored) pads with an adaptive layout and a touch strip with 24 LEDs for pitch bending or navigating through a Drum Rack. The 11 touch-sensitive encoders and LCD display are designed to adapt dynamically to control and show active parameters.
  • Fits inside a backpack alongside a laptop: Push is 370 mm / 14.57 inches wide, 293 mm / 11.54 inches deep and is 46 mm / 1.81 inches in height (including encoders) and weighs 2990g / 6.59 pounds. Backside connections are a USB port, power adaptor input and two assignable footswitch inputs. (Push is USB-powered, the brightness of the display and LEDs can be increased by using the included power supply).
  • Push cover: An optional steel cover doubles as an angled stand for performance.


Pricing & Availability:

Push will be available in the first quarter of 2013 for $599 / €499.

Push includes Ableton Live 9 Intro and works with any edition of Ableton Live 9 (Intro, Standard, Suite). Bundle upgrade discounts will be available for owners of previous versions of Live.
