Live 5 date?

Post by Patbos » Thu May 19, 2005 12:15 pm

When will live 5 be released?
I mean, live 4 took a huge step with midi support, and is greate.
But you guys missed a couple of things, like freeze function ect.
You know it, and know that live is a year or two behinde in some functions.

Curios, when will live 5 show up?
like late 2005? early 2006?, 2007?

I dunno,
I had a date with LIVE5, but I think I got stood up.

That's what you get for internet dating! Or dating musicians....HAH!

It's looking like sooner rather than later.....

They have done deals in the past where if u bought the last version not
long ago then u get a cheap upgrade.... but it is still another $50....

Probably worth borrowing a version till then if on a tight budget.

Live 4 was released on the 24th of July but announced on the 4th of June.

The date of the announcement can be found just above the Live 4 Logo.

Of course there is no guarantee Ableton will announce Live 5 within the next two to three weeks but based on last years timing it's not a bad guess just not a guarantee. 8)

I hope Live 5 would have detachable modules , so one could place instruments and panels in other screens or customable.

I prefer the one screen aproach - but it would be good if we could make our own 'performance' screen layout.

you can already have instruments in their own windows by altering the settings for plugins in preferences.

Haha! That sounds like fun. I think that each Live update has been a year or less, so personally I'm sure we'll be hearing about Live 5 before the autumn...

...on the other hand, Live 4 was a gigantic step, and I think that the ongoing (until recently) updates on 4 have needed to adress the fact that L4 was version 1 so far as MIDI is concerned.

Also, on the publicity/shelf-life issue, Live 4 is still a hot topic, and I expect there are lots of sales still coming in...

...and then there's the fact that Ableton also produced Operator this year, which will have taken up some of their programming time. And Operator has generated another batch of positive reviews and publicity.

So like I said, my money is on the autumn for Live 5.

I hope it includes a freeze function, PDC, per-track arpeggiator, and possibly channel EQ on the fader strips :wink:

This is all true, but Ableton has also reduced the price on their bundles.

For what it is worth.

That may mean that they are trying to attract even more customers before making the announcement for LIVE5.

Personally, there are some things that I almost need at this point that I would hope would end up in LIVE5, and they can't come soon enough.

PDC, may be among the tops....

Interesting - I didn't spot that. Yep, that probably means we're in phase 2 so far as Live 4 is concerned...

That is, the "sell off all the remaining boxes in the store room" phase :wink:

The reduced price might also be a reaction to Project 5's lower pricing..

maybe, but i wouldn't count on it. for one thing, Project 5 isn't available for macintosh, therefore if Ableton was actually competing with them, it would only be a battle over windows users. and for the 10 things P5 does that are similar to Live 4, there are 100 that it doesn't. Apples and Oranges.

Agreed.
They do compete in the starter market however and the price difference might sway a lot of newbs.
