Ableton releases Live 7 LE

Ableton has released Live 7 LE, its affordable professional-grade music-making solution. Built on the Live platform, the single-screen music production and performance solution offers most of its Ableton Live 7's new features for recording, songwriting, remixing and DJing. It includes studio-quality recording up to 32-bit/192 kHz; 64 audio tracks and unlimited MIDI tracks per project, MIDI sequencing for software instruments; and more than 20 built-in audio effects, including a host of creative delays, filters, distortions, studio compressors and EQs. The software also offers two software instruments-Simpler for creative sample-based synthesis, and Impulse for dynamic, sampled drums as well as support for VST and AU effects/instruments (along with automatic plug-in delay compensation).

The company also said Live 7 LE features real-time time-stretching and warping of AIFF, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC and MP3 files for DJing and instant remixing as and real-time tweaking of Live's controls with any MIDI controller (using MIDI-map it or a list of popular supported controllers).

The latest version of Live LE also offers multicore and multiprocessor support, but is limited to two simultaneous stereo audio inputs and outputs, 12 built-in audio effects, eight built-in instruments, two AU/VST effects and two AU/VST instruments per project.

Live 7 LE includes sampled instruments and loops and constructions kits (boxed version only), and built-in step-by-step tutorials. Localized software menus, tutorials and PDF reference manuals are available in English, Spanish, French, German and Japanese.

The software costs 130/$150, while the boxed version is available in stores and at the Ableton webshop for 170/$200. Upgrades from Live 6 LE to Live 7 LE are available for 50/$60 (download) and 80/$100 (boxed), while upgrades from Ableton Live LE to Live 7 and Ableton Suite are available for 300/$350 (download version) and 330/$390 (boxed). Upgrades to Ableton Suite start at 540/$610.
