Ableton Live 6 LE

Ableton has launched a new version of its popular Live production software, Live 6 LE. In order to reduce the cost of the package, Live LE provides an interface for recording, songwriting, producing, remixing and DJing, but strips away some of the capabilities of Live 6: it can only handle eight simultaneous built-in instruments, 12 built-in audio effects, two AU/VST effects, and two AU/VST instruments. It can still however handle 64 audio tracks and unlimited MIDI tracks, and record in qualities up to 32-bit/192kHz. Users can also warp and time-stretch formats such as AIFF, FLAC, MP3, OGG and WAV. To make the software more appealing to beginners, step-by-step tutorials are included. LE is $150 as a download, or $200 in boxed form; the latter comes with the Unnatural Selection loops and construction kit, as well as samples in the form of Essential Instruments Collection LE Edition.
