Ableton has unveiled updated versions of its Push and Live technologies following its first Loop music summit in Berlin. As FACT reports, the new Live controller Push (which was designed in-house rather than with Akai) features improved pads and more accurate reads on waveforms, effects, and mixer levels. Users can also manipulate and play samples recorded with Live, and load VST instruments and Audio Unit with a new controller.
Key improvements to Live 9.5 reportedly include "an overhauled version of the software’s Simpler sampler device… an array of analog-modeled filters embedded throughout the software’s built-in instruments, as well as improved waveforms and volume meters." Ableton has also announced a new technology, Link, which syncs Live with compatible i0S apps through a wireless network. Watch Link and Push 2 demos below, and head here for more complete information on all the new products.
