Big big news from Berlin.
At the first-ever all-Ableton conference called Loop, the music technology company announced three big deals.
Introducing the Push 2
“Making music is hard. To stay in the flow, you need to be able to capture your ideas quickly, and you need technology to stay out of the way. Computers make it possible for one person to create whole worlds of sound. But instruments are where inspiration comes from. Push gives you the best of everything.” Read more here.
The company also announced a trade in program for your old Push machine. The trade-in program will allow your old device to go to music education programs like Beats By Girlz.
2: “Link” Allows You to Play in Time Live
“Link is a technology that keeps devices in time over a wireless network, so you can forget the hassle of setting up and focus on playing music.”
As our founding Ableton Live instructor Encanti puts it:
This is different from MIDI timecode because anyone on the Link network can change tempo, and pressing stop will not stop other computers playback, eliminating the idea of Master/Slave in MIDI sync. While they could make a profit selling the license for this technology, they are giving this technology away to developers for free, thus opening the doors for a new generation of electronic music performance and collaboration.
3: Live 9.5 Free Update Out Now
Now the program has better sampling with Simpler, and updated meter and improved waveforms. Read more about 9.5 here.
Make the decision to get involved in this state-of-the-art music technology today. Start by emailing me for a tour of our facilities.
Regardless, it all makes for an astounding trio of announcements, which most assuredly made an emotional impact on Ableton’s supporters and Loop attendees.
