updated 02:35 pm EDT, Thu April 2, 2009

Live 8, Suite 8 ship soon

Ableton has launched Live 8 and Suite 8, upgrading the real-time music creation software with new techniques, effects and workflow upgrades. Both packages have been given a new groove engine, as well as improved warping techniques and live looping. Five new effects are present, as well as a reworked MIDI editor; Suite 8 adds a new Operator plus two new instrument sets, Collision and Latin Percussion.

The groove engine incorporates a library, and extracts patterns from samples in addition to applying them. The looper allows sound-on-sound looping, while the new effects are divided into Vocoder, Multiband Dynamics, Overdrive, Limiter and Frequency Shifter components. Suite differentiates from Live mainly by adding a sound library with a wide variety of instruments. Live 8 is $450, while Suite 8 is $700.
