Ableton offering Retro Synth gift

OWC has released a new Mac-based firmware updater for its Mercury line of SSDs, while Ableton has announced that Puremagnetik's Retro Synths package is now being offered as a free gift to all registered users

Other World Computing has released a Mac compatible firmware updater for SandForce Driven solid state drives. The new updater is available as a free download from the OWC website and is designed for exclusive use with select OWC Mercury SSD models manufactured after January 2010. To run the updater, users have to download software from OWC to make a bootable DVD. The DVD can then be used to launch a graphical interface that will guide the user through the process of installing the latest firmware revision to their SSD.

Retro Synths offered as free gift to registered Ableton 8 users

Puremagnetik's Retro Synths is now being offered to all registered users of Ableton Live 8 or Suite 8 as a free gift. Retro Synths contains over 4,000 samples of well-known synthesizers from the last three decades. The selection includes Minimoog basses, acid lines from the Roland TB-303, phase distortion tones from the Casio CZ-series, and more. In addition, anyone who purchases Ableton before October 31st will also be able to receive Retro Synths for free.
