review of Ableton Live 6 (2006)
« on: August 04, 2019, 12:28:38 AM »

Ableton's Live revolutionised user interface design in music software, and with every update, the company have striven to retain its ergonomic appeal whilst adding some very sophisticated new features.

Ever since Live 's 2001 release rocked the world of computer music, Ableton's prolific development efforts have brought us an average of one major update per year. Version 6 has a long list of new features, many aimed at broadening Live 's appeal in the composition and production spheres. Performers and DJs also get looked after with the new instrument and effects 'racks', MIDI control features, and massive performance improvements. So is Live in danger of moving away from the fast, streamlined working methods it's known for and sinking under a bloat of features, or has the newest kid on the block come of age?
