Ableton Live 8 featured at NAMM

Live is a great piece of software. The latest version has a lot of new features, new instruments, better workflow and easy sharing of sets between users. Maybe this time the devs will make it sound good too.

I don’t want to spoil the hype but it seems that the next version of Live has no sonic improvements. That’s bad because the lack of proper sound quality keeps Live out of the circle of pro audio DAW’s. Of course it’s easy to use, handles loops and it’s great for live performances. Maybe it’s just me but when I’m mixing with Ableton I keep making dull and ugly mixes even using a few tracks. But hey, hope dies last.
