Ableton Live 9 Sneak Preview With Robert Lippok
DAW software used to cost producers and arm and a leg. If you consider how much work and effort goes into creating a program like Ableton, then it’s not hard to understand why it isn’t a fifty dollar application. The good news is that prices of DAWs tend to drop as newer updated versions are being released. If you’re new to the game and don’t want to be stuck with an intro version of a software, Ableton 9 should be a small blessing for you, as the price of Ableton Live 8 will surely drop. So will Ableton 9 be worth the upgrade?
Like any respectable software company, Ableton has been releasing beta trials of their newest updated version – hoping to weed out any issue or bugs that users may experience, before the boxed package actually hits shelves. As far as the big changes in the software, commentators have noted some subtle changes in the GUI (which may or may not be helpful to you), also, there have been some noticeable changes in the workflow centered around midi and automation editing. Depending on what your primary usage of the software is, this might be the right ticket to spend some time on during your holiday break.
