The moment you've all been waiting for... Ableton Live 10 is here! Below you will find a highlight video and Ableton's official press release.

Stay tuned for our in-depth review, coming soon.

Press Release: Ableton Live 10 is now available at Ableton.com and at local retailers worldwide. The new Live delivers four bold new devices, workflow refinements and a re-designed sound library. Live 10 also brings new functionality and high-res visualizations to Push. Plus, Max technology is now fully integrated into Live 10 Suite for faster, more stable performance.

Some of the new features in Live 10 include:

New instruments and effects

  • Wavetable is Ableton’s latest synth—immediately playable with a vast sonic palette.
  • Echo produces delay sounds from classic textures to soundscapes, wailing feedback and experimental atmospheres.
  • Drum Buss is a one-stop workstation for drums, capable of adding subtle character or completely bending and breaking drums.
  • Pedal brings the character of analog stomp boxes to Live with separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals.

Workflow improvements

  • Capture recalls an idea after it has been played and turns it into a MIDI clip with groove and feel intact.
  • Multiple MIDI clip editing allows users to see the content of two or more clips in one detail view.
  • Groups within groups allow for greater flexibility when mixing and improves Set organization even with lots of tracks and a detailed arrangement.
  • A multitude of refinements including improvements to Arrangement View workflows, Browser Collections, I/O renaming, note chasing, and much more.

New library of sound

  • Curated Collections capture the musical threads that tie together evolving styles and scenes.
  • Four all-new Essential Instruments include synths, and multi-sampled electric keys and drums.
  • Live 10’s Core Library gets a sonic upgrade with richer, more detailed sounds.

Improvements to Push

  • A new step sequencing layout allows simultaneous note sequencing and real time playing.
  • MIDI note view allows navigation and refinement of the notes in a pattern in context directly on the Push display.
  • Richer visualization with more feedback of key Live devices including Wavetable, Echo, EQ Eight and Compressor.
  • Workflow improvements to layouts, building and extending patterns, track arming and more.

Max for Live

  • Deeper integration with Live 10 Suite means devices now load faster, use less CPU and feel more like Live’s native devices.
  • Sonically upgraded Drum Synths, improved modulation and mapping Devices and more.
  • Multi-channel audio routing means mixing using multi-channel speaker setups is now possible.
  • Max for Live devices can send and receive SysEx, allowing deeper access to external gear.

Lookout for the official DJBooth review, coming soon.

Traktor 2.5 is HERE! (Video)

Our good friends over at Native Instruments dropped a jem on the DJ-world earlier this week while I was sick and away in Denver for other business. Sorry I didn't get to this as fast as I should have, but better late than never! Traktor 2.5 with the new remix decks is now available for free upgrade download for current Traktor 2.0 users. Traktor 2.5 can also be bought for only $90 for users who do not currently have Traktor. We'll have the full HD-Video in-depth Review of the new Traktor 2.5 and the Traktor F1 hardware as soon as its released but check out my initial thoughts on the new update along with the video and instructions on how to go get your copy of Traktor 2.5 early!
