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.
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.
