Upgrading to the full version of Ableton Live 8 gives you everything you need to take your music to the next level. Get all the pro features with no limitations.
Some of the advantages of upgrading to Ableton Live 8 include:
Unlimited Tracks, Scenes and I/O
With the full version of Ableton Live you will be able to take your projects to the next level with unlimited audio and MIDI tracks, unlimited Session View scenes and as many audio inputs and outputs as your hardware can handle.
Unlimited Effects and Instruments
The full version of Ableton Live allows you to use as many of Live's built-in instruments and effects as well as 3rd party VST and Audio Unit instruments and effects per project as your computer can handle.
Full Rewire Support
ReWire Reason to Live, expand your Reason projects with your own audio recordings, and then add Live's effects and instruments, as well as third-party VSTs and AUs, to the mix. Sync Live's spontaneous workflow to ProTools, Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, Sonar or any other application that supports the ReWire protocol.
The new Drum Rack streamlines beat production via a familiar drum pad interface allows dragging and dropping of samples, instruments and effects. Each pad has its own device chain and can be shown as a mixer channel in the Session View for easy mixing.
Racks allow you to create and preserve complex instrument layers, splits or your favorite arrangement of effects settings. Create complex Racks of instruments and effects, and play them via a simplified control interface. Save your effects chains and instrument setups in your library for instant recall.
More File Support
Ableton Live 8 offers real-time time-stretching and warping of compressed audio formats such as MP3, Ogg Vorbis and FLAC files. REX files can also be dragged, dropped and played just like WAV or AIFF files.
Complex Warp Mode
Complex Mode is a warping method specifically designed to accommodate composite signals that combine the characteristics covered by other Warp Modes; it works well for warping entire songs, which usually contain beats, tones and textures.
Live is perfect for matching music to picture—or vice versa. Elastic audio makes it easy to warp music to match the hit points or key frames of imported video—but you can also warp the video to match the music and export the results. In Live, video is just as elastic as audio.
Even if things get a little heavy, with numerous tracks full of massive effects chains and virtual instruments, Live's freeze function keeps things flowing. Just deep freeze your track and retain the ability to experiment with editing, automation and more without unfreezing it.
