So, Live 7 has to be one of the most eagerly anticipated new releases from Ableton, well - since Live 6 anyhow. After the excitement around the Beta program, itâ€™s now available in all itâ€™s full glory.
This release adds some pretty major new features, while retaining the essential Live-ness of the program.
In this up-close and personal demo we get to look at Beat Slicing, Drum Racks, a new 64-bit audio engine, video export and editing, time signature changes and more.
