Woot Woot ableton 8 is coming!!!!

It's about damn time! This shyte is gonna kick ass.... it's gonna have max built into it which will be like virtual devices so you can not only make your own completely integrated devices which you can interface with midi, but also you can use those devices to access parts of ableton such as clip names and all sorts of useful info....

If you can't see the potential, picture a home made complete groove box completely integrated inside live using it's gorgeous instruments and and sound engine. I personally can't wait, in fact I think I might just piss my pants when it comes out....

here's a vid.

not to mention that it will have hundreds of improvements and new effects....

Did you see the Akai controller for it? APc 40? Kind of expensive though...

I don't really care about the controller due to the fact that I can do that with any other controller. :)

Yeah, but I think this one was designed esp. for Live, so I'm pretty sure this makes it better suited than all other controllers. It also has a monome feel to it with the button matrix. Anyway, moot point for me, as I don't spend any $$ on something that doesn't make its own sounds.

I think this is the way to go for anyone entering the world of software ATM.. I'll get this and the controller and a dedicated music computer some day :)
