Ableton team up with Soundcloud

Post by matthews » Mon Apr 02, 2012 2:42 pm

Ableton has long been the number one choice for musicians, whether for songwriting, making beats, remixing or live performances. At SoundCloud, we know that many of you depend upon it, indeed many of our team members use it on a regular basis privately (and it’s even been used in a masterclass or two!). It’s therefore with great pleasure to announce that SoundCloud and Ableton, two great Berlin audio companies, have teamed up to give our communities something unprecedented and very, very awesome.

The news? Ableton now comes with SoundCloud sharing baked in – yes, upload straight to SoundCloud. To celebrate, SoundCloud is offering Ableton users 5 months of SoundCloud Pro, for free. You can find the details here. So what does the SoundCloud community get? Ableton has been generous enough to offer the entire SoundCloud community a free copy of Live Lite 8 so that everyone can get started making their own sounds.

If you’re registered for our newsletter, you’ll get an email in the next 2 weeks with your own personal download code for Ableton Live Lite 8. If you haven’t yet registered for our newsletter, you can do so on your email settings page.

Wow. This is just awesome for everyone concerned.

This is going to mean a lot of new Ableton users (there are literally millions of Soundcloud users who could presumably all claim Live Lite free!).

And a bunch of new Soundcloud Pro users :)

Holy Bezus:

Not that there isn't an abundant supply of hardware you can buy and get Live Lite 8 with -- but wow -- lots of people who don't already have Live 8, just received big discount coupons!

To those not in the know, Live's upgrade pricing is the bees.

This is in addition to my original Holy Bezus, where I had heard random ridiculous rumors about integration with Soundcloud, but instantly discarded it as Live 9 speculation.

This is the tits for sure! Of course, there are already people bitching about it on the post that Ableton made on their facebook earlier. Seriously?!?! What a bunch of pooheads...

so does that mean live can finally export mp3, or will it upload 24 bit wav and totally bust my cap?

To answer without clicking having to click that link, Soundcloud doesn't limit your account by file size, but instead play time. So you can upload .wavs all day long and it won't hurt your account more than 92 kbps MP3s. Which is one of my favorite features of Soundcloud actually.
