Ableton has announced the release of Live 6 LE, a new member of the Ableton product line that makes Live's unique workflow available to beginning and hobbyist musicians.
Live 6 LE is built on the same fundamental concepts as Live 6. Offering most of Live's pro features, the LE version gives musicians hassle-free access to tools that will help shape their musical ideas into creative works. Live 6 LE makes music-making fast, easy and enjoyable.
Live 6 LE is built for professional-level recording, songwriting, producing, remixing and DJing. It includes:
- Studio-quality recording up to 32-bit/192 kHz.
- Sixty-four audio tracks and unlimited MIDI tracks per project.
- More than twenty built-in audio effects, including a host of creative delays, filters, distortions, studio compressors and EQs*.
- Two software instruments—Simpler for creative sample-based synthesis, and Impulse for dynamic, sampled drums*.
- Support for VST and AU effects and instruments*.
- Real-time time-stretching and warping of AIFF, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC and MP3 files for DJing and instant remixing.
- Multicore and multiprocessor support.
Live 6 LE has everything you need to start making music, including:
- Sampled instruments: Essential Instruments Collection LE Edition by SONiVOX (boxed version only).
- Loops and construction kits: Unnatural Selection by Puremagnetik (boxed version only).
- A wide selection of presets for Live 6 LE's instruments and effects.
- Extensive built-in step-by-step tutorials.
* Live 6 LE is limited to twelve simultaneous built-in audio effects, eight built-in instruments, two AU/VST effects and two AU/VST instruments per project.
