Please note: This version of Ableton Live 9 is the educational version for teachers and students. The software won't run properly until you've verified your educational status.
If you're looking for an incredibly powerful Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) that is designed for seamless transitions between the studio and onstage, then Ableton Live 9 Standard is perfect. Including many of the features as that of Ableton's flagship Live 9 Suite, Live 9 Standard has everything you need to take your ideas from the initial song writing stages to the stage.
Some of the more important improvements in Ableton Live 9 are neat and discreet. The way in which the internal programming operates has been modified to improve sound quality, reduce latency and perfect the (already extremely reliable) software to ensure it can hold its own during live performances. The iconic Session View has been given a delicate update - making it even more impressive than ever before. Automation can now be recorded to clips in real time, or drawn in for full control over all parameters. A new curved automation feature, present in both session and arrangement view, lets you add smooth curves to your parameters too for professional sounding effects.
Ableton has gone to great lengths to make Live 9 significantly more powerful than its predecessors. In this latest version you have the fantastic new Glue compressor, which is modeled on an analog 80s console bus compressor. At your fingertips you can control individual instruments as well as the entire mix, making it even easier to create smooth sounding, polished mixes.
The already popular EQ Eight plug-in has been overhauled too, giving it greater tonal possibilities. The filters have been rebuilt, improving the sound quality and smoothness of the output. Several new features are here too - amongst them is a new display mode where you can make the output spectrum appear much larger for quick and easy analysis. Other new EQ 8 features include adaptive Q, the ability to change multiple filters at once and an audition mode where you just hear the selected filters effect.
Audio to MIDI conversion
A new feature for Live 9 is an audio to MIDI converter, extremely handy for getting ideas down quickly. Three conversion options are available: harmony, melody and drums. All three do just what you'd expect and allow you to use samples in a new way, for example use your favourite drum break with completely new sounds. This also means you could record a guitar and turn it in to a synth, or turn your beatboxing in to a full drum kit.
All of the features you know and love
All of the changes in Live 9 are there to help make you work quicker and end up with a more professional result. If you've used Live before then you'll know how easy to create music in a variety of genres and Live 9 makes this an even easier task.
