If you’re doing it right, you already know that Ableton, the Berlin-based music software giant, has announced Live 10, the first major upgrade in the DAW in five years.
Here is what the web is saying:
Fact Magazine: “gigantic list of improvements” “the most significant change is that Max for Live is now fully integrated into Live” “new multi-channel audio routing capability for surround sound performances” “improved modulation”
The Verge: “a lot of new, notable changes to Live.” “One of the more exciting new features in Live 10 might be initially glossed over by many: Collections.” “at last, the option to export audio as .MP3.”
Engadget: “if you start playback mid-note, you won’t hear it — annoying for long strings sounds, for example. A new “Note chasing” feature solves that” “For those (like me) who seem to give their best performance while not recording, there’s ‘Capture.'”
DJ Mag: “At the top of the list is a new instrument called Wavetable” “a much needed new delay plugin Echo has been added” “the ability to edit multiple MIDI clips at once”
A lot of my drums are just people picking up new ammo and weapons in games. — Burial
Mixmag goes underground with our friends Ikonika, Tokimonsta, and–well, maybe someday–Burial in a grand expose on video game music’s influence on the latest sounds.
Rustie is another artist who flipped perceptions of dance music on their head and ushered in a new generation of producers with his 2011 record ‘Glass Swords’ arriving stylistically similar to, and packed full of hyperactive noises from games such as Zelda.
Of course, Mmmmaven’s five-year mission is to support the unification of music and technology, and articles like this make every sense in the world.
Just take this quote from Make It New alum Ikonika: “My life feels more like a game than a movie. Music is the biggest game I’m playing.”
