Berlin, Germany, May 15, 2008 — Ableton is proud to announce the release of Live 7 LE, an easy- to-use, professional-grade music-making solution that everyone can afford.

  • Real-time time-stretching and warping of AIFF, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC and MP3 files for DJing and instant remixing
  • Real-time tweaking of Live’s controls with any MIDI controller—just MIDI-map it or choose from a list of popular supported controllers for instant mapping
  • Single-screen user interface for simple, creativity-focused operation
