Ableton has released a beta version of LIVE5. If you want to test this version and give some feedback to Ableton, you can download a beta demo version. Live 5, is Abletons biggest development effort since the initial release of Live in 2001. The version 5 feature set extends each aspect of Live – from creation to production to performance – while making the program easier and even more fun to use.
In creating Live 5, they faced the challenge of adding the most requested features while keeping Live simple, solid and inspiring to use. The new functionality simultaneously widens Live’s scope and strengthens the qualities that make the program stand out. Ableton likes to express their gratitude to the Live users who urged them to make this happen, and to make it happen in the right way. It is very important that they get feedback during the beta test period, so that they can make Live 5 even better.
The beta version has a few limitations:
* The system language cannot be set to Japanese.
* No manual is included.
* The skin can only be set to the default.
* Only a limited set of presets, samples, Live Sets and lessons is included.
It is important to get feedback from you concerning the beta version. Please post comments and other beta-related feedback on the beta forum online. The beta forum will be monitored by all Ableton developers for the duration of the beta period.
