All about Ableton Live 7. Ableton Live 7 renews the core of Live, with enhancements to the audio engine including 64-bit mix summing, new and improved devices with side-chaining capability, better MIDI timing, and hardware integration. We have also included the most-requested features, such as time signature changes, video export, multiple automation lanes and much more. Version 7 marks the arrival of the new "Drum Rack" which streamlines beat production via an easy drag-and-drop interface and offers native sliced audio and REX file support, bringing endless creative possibilities to beat lovers.Enhanced Audio EngineLive 7's enhanced audio engine improves fidelity with precision 64-bit summing at all mix points throughout the program, POW-r dithering, optimized sample-rate conversion and other advances. image New Compressor The new compressor device integrates the compression models of Compressor I and II, and offers a new model based on a feedback design commonly found in the most praised vintage compressors. image Sidechaining Fully integrated side-chaining capability is available for the new Compressor as well as Gate and Auto Filter. image Device High-Quality Modes Operator, Dynamic Tube and Saturator now feature optional High-Quality modes for anti-aliased processing, reducing typical "digital" artifacts. image EQ Eight—New and Improved EQ Eight sports an improved user interface and a new 64-bit mode for increased accuracy and fidelity. image Introducing Spectrum The new Spectrum device is an analyzer that provides real-time visual feedback for any audio signals within Live (and it looks really cool!). image Improved MIDI Timing The MIDI engine has been reworked, and we were able to significantly reduce timing error (jitter) of recorded MIDI. image Easy Hardware Integration Hardware integration has been streamlined with the addition of two new devices—External Instrument and External Audio Effect—allowing hardware synthesizers and effects to be inserted into device chains just like software plug-ins. image Enhanced Memory Management New memory management technology allows users of large sample libraries, such as Ableton's new sampled instruments or third-party libraries imported via Sampler, to run an impressive number of instruments at the same time. This happens automatically, with no setup changes required. Sound cool? Download Ableton Live 7.
