Take a First Look at Ableton Live 9
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Although there has been no official announcement from Ableton about the eventual release of the next generation of its Live software (update: Ableton's official word on the product has now arrived), a video showing off some features of Live 9—and a slightly updated look—has found its way to the web, indicating a new version of the program is well on its way. The "leaked" video shows off a new compressor modelled after a "classic British console," as well as a host of enhancements to the existing compressor, gate, and EQ functions in Live. There is currently no word on when Live 9 will see an official release, and the company has not made a statement in regards to the video's content, but considering the same footage initially appeared briefly on Ableton's own YouTube channel, you can rest assured this a legitimate first look at Live 9.
