Sequencer Directed Live

Live is an audio sequencer which you can play like an instrument. It allows you to bring together audio material from various sources. All the samples used are adjusted to the tempo of the song in real time without changing the pitch...

When converting Simpler to Sampler, the Sample Start marker would be visually misplaced.
The signal of send for grouped tracks would be doubled (+6dB), if the track's output was routed to Master and the respective Return track ‘Pre/Post’ toggle was set to Pre.
When dragging unwarped Clips over the section of a song where the tempo was automated from a low value to a higher one, Clips stored in the clipboard would appear after the dragged Clip.

Link, The Bridge and External Sync are not available when Live runs as a ReWire slave.
The Python framework has been updated to support Python 2.7.
Added control surface support for the Arturia KeyLab series, Arturia BeatStep and Arturia MiniLab.
Added Control Surface support for the Alesis VX series.

A crash could take place when playing back sliced samples in Simpler, if 'Snap' had previously been activated in Classic or One-Shot mode.
A crash could occur when dragging the Start Marker to the very end of a file in Simpler and playing back a warped, looped sample with 'Snap' active.
Live could crash when playing back warped samples in Simpler. The crash would occur when a new note began playing at the exact same time that another playing note was ending, if that also choked or retriggered the previous note.
When slicing an audio Clip to a Sampler based slicing preset, all slices would be assigned to the same root note.
Simpler's playhead could jump unexpectedly when starting the transport while playing back warped samples.
Dragging a selection of an arrangement clip into Simpler now sets the start and end flags according to the selection.
Snap is automatically disabled when slicing a Simpler to a Drum Rack. This ensures that the sound of playback does not change after slicing a Simpler to a Drum Rack.
Changing Simpler's playback mode via the keyboard would not be undoable.

Reduced audible artifacts and improved timing for samples warped with Complex and Complex Pro.
When using Link, the Driver Error Compensation value was previously used to adjust the latency compensation for the sync, whenever an audio driver did not report its latency correctly. This is not the case anymore and the Master track delay can be used instead.

It is now possible to reverse a sample in Simpler via a context menu option.
Creating a multi selection for a number of chains in a Drum Rack enables setting the choke group for all chains at once.
When instantiating a plug-in, up to 64 parameters get configured automatically now.
A parameter configuration can now be saved as a default per AU or VST plug-in. This is done via a new context menu entry available in Live's plug-in device. The default configurations are stored in a "Plug-In Configurations" folder under "User Library/Defaults".

Almost perfect..
absolutely, it's the best!

I LOVE Ableton's Live, it's super software for musician! Inspiring, creative, powerful. Amazingly fast tech-support. Simply the best!
dubdelta
Guenter :'Bad: you only get two registration-numbers from ableton (in case of changing your computer that's pretty not much).'
-- If you contact Ableton by email or phone (Very helpful) and mention that you would like to register on other computers you will find them to be very accomodating.

Brilliant software!! Very easy to learn and with 3rd party plug-ins the possiblities and quality are up to the creator.
pixelpunk
If you are a musician that this is simply the most amazing piece of software running on OS X. Fast, incredibly Powerful. Frequent updates, good support.

Very Good: Live 3.0 is truly the best looping sequencer for live-acts and for rapid results. Impressive it's effect section: therewith one can get brilliant results in real time. A most useful feature: You can run Live 3.0 in slave mode with nearly all other sequencers. Bad: you only get two registration-numbers from ableton (in case of changing your computer that's pretty not much). MIDI editing is not the a strong point of Live 3.0.
scseay
Truly the best Looping Sequencer for Mac or Windows. Live 1.0 was great, but 3.0 is amazing. Well worth the money!!!!

Je me sert de Live pour tout, il est vrai que les effets qu'il propose ne sont pas d'exelente qualité, je pense surtout au reverb, mais c'est un puissant outils que j'utilise pour la compo et pour le live, combiné à Reason, il devient monstrueux...Un log polyvalent et stable...

à utilisé pour la composition et , a mon avis en complement de cubase ou logic et autre proo tools.....

Live est un bon logiciel, très intéressant pour les prestations live justement, pour un musicien ne souhaitant pas sortir ses machines de sa chambre... néanmoins, la structure du logiciel reste un peu fermée, le traitement audio n'est pas parfait et son prix (depuis la version 4) me semble surévalué. Il reste tout de même un bon soft, très agréable à utiliser.

Enfin un soft stable et complet (depuis la version 4) qui trouve sa place comme un reel instrument de musique sur scene .
Je m en sert sur un Ibook G4 avec la carte son interne ou avec le M-audio OZONE !
