Ableton Live 6


You can do so much with Live 6, it's hard to know exactly where to begin describing this masterful software sequencer. So we'll start at the top. With just a few clicks of an in-application help system, we were up and running with the program's...

Fun to tinker around with, even if you have no audio-creation experience whatsoever

Could stand an interface overhaul ; a few more tutorials would be nice

Editing a track in Ableton Live 6 can be as simple as mixing and matching blocks of loops

Ableton Live 6


Find a DJ mate who's a vinyl junkie - the sort who can beat-match and scratch as if born with a headphone earpiece clamped to his or her head. Advocate DJing on a computer, then hear the DJ rant about the superior feel of vinyl and decks.

Makes Experimentation a Breeze, Movie Support, Racks and Folders Improve Workflow, Flexible MIDI Mapping, Multi-Core/Processor Support

No Surround Sound Support

Seasoned users will find that Live retains its instant-groove appeal, while stage performers will appreciate enhancements to project organisation and MIDI control

Ableton Live 6


Ableton's Live has wowed many a music maker since its launch in 2001. How does the 2006 variation perform?

Multi-core/processor support, video capability, enhanced project-management tools, wide selection of signal processors, AAC import, good ReWire support

New Sampler and Operator not bundled, Essential Instrument Collection only available with boxed version, no scoring facilities, moderately steep learning curve

Even if you're settled with another sequencer, it's still worth acquiring Live 6. Not only does it function as a powerful scratchpad for sample-based works, it ReWires into any compatible host, adding incredible capability to a Mac-based music setup....
