Ableton On The Road

Ableton Live 8 and Novation UK Tour 2009 announced      27/04/09

Ableton On The Road


After the success of last year's Ableton Live tour, Ableton and Novation have teamed up again to showcase Live 8 at select venues. With a brand new schedule of demonstrations and workshops, they tell us that there will be something for everyone -- from beginners taking their first steps to seasoned power-users wanting to check out the new features. This time the focus will be on Scotland and the North of England. Here's the details that they have sent us...
Ableton's much-anticipated Live 8 software is now available, and these workshops represent an opportunity to be amongst the first to see its new features and functions. An Ableton specialist will be on hand to introduce Live 8 to those who haven't yet seen Live in action, with its unique approach to creating and performing music. The workshops will also give existing Live users a chance to explore some of its more advanced features and participate in question and answer sessions.
There will also be various Ableton goodies to give away, as well as exclusive Loopmasters sample disks with over 500MB of copyright-free samples, Ableton free trial disks and much more. Ableton and Novation will also be giving away one of Novation's award-winning Nocturn MIDI controllers -- worth £90 -- at every single event. The prize draw will be open to all those who attend.
