Version 8 enhances the Ableton vision of creative, real-time digital music with a wealth of new techniques, effects and most-wanted workflow improvements.

Ableton Live 8 is the most creative and expressive Digital Audio Workstation yet produced. Advanced features include:

Groove engine:

Groove patterns dynamically influence the timing and velocity/volume of audio and MIDI material. This can add life and swing to straight patterns, give a track more drive, or lend a piece an easy, laid-back feeling.

Warping Engine:

Live 8 is the next logical step in warping evolution with a new, more intuitive warping paradigm and some important Warp Mode enhancements.

Looper:

Looper brings the creative power of classic sound-on-sound looping to Live, without the limitations of a hardware device. Inspired by some of our favorite sample/delay devices plus a good deal of Ableton wizardry, Looper provides plenty of scope in a super-simple interface.

Effects:

Live 8 includes five powerful new effects, each with a strong personality and serious "classic" potential. These effects add a special Ableton shine to the well-known aspects of these devices, giving you effects that are not only practical and easy to use but also inspiring.

Workflow Enhancements:

Version 8 makes Live easier with a number of most-wanted enhancements and some deceptively simple detail work.

Gear4music are retailing Ableton Live 8 at £399.99, with an Upgrade from Version 7 costing £159.99
