Thread: Ableton 8 beta

  1. #1

    Default Ableton 8 beta

    Abletons site says only live 7 users can download and test the beta version of ableton live 8... just wondering if anyone here has tryed it yet and what they think about it. I only have live 6 at the moment lol

    I don't think there are enough added bells and whistles to warrant an update . What got me with seven was the sidechaining and drumracks . But I think I'll wait till nine to bother with an update

    Nice one Moniker!


    Can't wait to try the new beatgridding/warping engine and the new groove engine.

    Sorry I still don't see enough new stuff for me to upgrade . I mean the warp engine upgrade is nice and all but I don't have trouble with the existing one . It's not like this update is really ableton 8 it's more like 7.1 or 7.2 . All I'm saying is I really want to feel like I get my moneys worth when I upgrade a software like this .

    That's where you and I differ.

    For me the 8 is earned. Calling it 7.x would mean too little changes to me thus not doing it justice.
    Than again, that is just based on the vids.
    I still need to use it myself before passing proper judgement.

    By the way, versioning based on personal preference on older engines still working fine, that would be a no no.

    We're sorry, this round of Live 8 beta testing is closed.

    Please try again during the next round of beta testing.
    bummer


    Looper looks interesting as does the vocoder, and I like the new workflow features - crossfades in arrange view

    take a break ProTools!
