Ableton Live 8

So the big news this week is that Ableton Live 8 is coming. Not only that but they have developed Max for Live together with Cycling 74, the people behind Max/MSP. Live 8 includes great new features like new instruments, new groove pattern capabilities, new effects, workflow enhancements and a new sharing feature, that allows you to more easily share your work with collaborators.

As if that weren't enough, Ableton has teamed up with Akai, the makers of the classic MPC-60 sampler (an icon in the hip hop industry), to develop the first dedicated Ableton controller, called the APC40. It's not only pretty, it's highly functional and completely emliminates the need for a mouse. I can't wait to get my hands on one of these!

Head on over to for more details!
