Here at Mmmmaven, our Co-Founder and Executive Director Alex Maniatis, in league with our Managing Director Polina Starobinets, put on the Make It New weekly party in addition to running the school. Of course, our ridiculous supporting staff is always worth a thanks, high-five, or fist-bump!
But for over thirteen years, the award-winning weekly at the Middlesex Lounge in Central Square, brings in guests from around the world to show off the latest in music technology, beat-making, and general fun-having.
For our students, they get the chance to watch a legend do their thing, and for the wider audience, it’s a chance to see some huge global names in an intimate space with amazing sound.
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.
