Ableton 10 Around the Corner?

Big announcement at LOOP 2017?

Traditionally, Ableton announces big news at its annual event LOOP. This year, LOOP will be happening in Berlin, November 10th-12th, and there are increasing rumors that Ableton 10 will be announced then. While there is nothing substantial on the official Ableton website yet, there have been rumors, certain visuals and overall a huge expectation that 10 is right around the corner.

REVIVE: One of our superstar interns was able to go to Loop last year. Read about her fascinating experience here, here, here, and here.

Two photos leaked on Reddit show that Ableton is selling 9 at a 20% discount rate until 10 comes out. They will offer a free upgrade to people who have Ableton 9, which is wonderful news for anyone that recently bought Ableton 9.

Expectations of a new UI

Some users of Ableton are hoping for improvements in the general user interface of Ableton with the new release. While it is unclear whether or not there will be any drastic changes; there have been expectations toppled with supposedly leaked screenshots taken from blurry photos of artist desktops. Whichever the case might be, there’s definitely an expectation that we will face a new UI with Ableton 10.

“I just wanted to send you a brief note about the lastest developments of our group of Mmmmaven alumni from the DJ 101+102 classes. After our graduation in June 2015, Juliana Chalsen (Jayana), Mike David (MFD) and myself (Brian Drey) have kept tightly in touch and worked our ways to the Boston musical scene.

Juliana has kept working on her classical music teaching, while at the same time DJing and maintaining a monthly podcast of mixes called Miles per Hour. Mike on his end has made strong ties with several DJ collectives from the Boston and Providence areas, and has played in several underground events all over the interstate area.

And for myself, as a still in school student, have managed to make a solid reputation in on-campus college and grad parties, as well as individual gigs at the Liberty Hotel, Berlin clubs and most recently Burning Man.

But above all, I wanted to let you know that we have been working together a lot as well as a DJ group, as a result of the friendship we started at Mmmmaven. This has resulted in the establishment of Flight617, a monthly night at Good Life, with the help and reference of Damien, which next January will celebrate its first anniversary. The three of us have consistently played as residents at these nights, covering for a guest DJ every week. The latest iteration of this night is here

And on top of that, we are very happy to have achieved as well one of our DJ dreams: playing together at the House of Blues Boston! It was in the framework of a Harvard Halloween Party, and let me tell you… it was a blast, we had the time of our lives!

All of this to say that Mmmmaven has meant a lot for us, that we wouldn’t have reached these goals without the mentorship of the school, and that we hope you help many more students achieve higher musical goals, the way we are starting to do

 

Cheers!
