Ableton Live had plenty to announce at this year’s Winter NAMM conference. First, of course, they’re announcing Ableton Live 8 and Ableton Suite 8. With a great new intuative warping engine. They’ve also announced a dedicated controller for Live from Akai, the APC40 (Ableton Performance Controller), as well as Max For Live, a collaboration with Cycling ’74 that allows you to do Max programming within Ableton’s sequencer. Basically, allowing you to build and create your own effects and instruments from scratch, leaving Ableton Live even more limitless.
