      Ableton Suite 8 Education Edition - Full Version (5 Seat Lab Pack) (105929673)
Availability:  


Get the benefits of Live 8, 10 virtual synths, tons of multi-sample instruments, drums, and more.

What better way to get your student ready for the creating music professionally then with a real-world application like Ableton Suite 8. Specially priced for teachers, the Education Edition 5 Seat Lab Pack gives educators 5 user licenses—enough for a classroom setting—has everything you'd find in the regular software edition, just at a more affordable price.

The Ableton Suite 8 software package gives you a rich world of sound, perfectly complementing the tools and features in Live 8, including 10 virtual synthesizers and a huge collection of multi-sample instruments and drums. These include Sampler (sampler), Operator (frequency modulation synth), Electric (classic electronic piano emulator), Collision (physical modeling instrument for authentic mallet sounds and creative percussion Tension (physical modeling string synth), Analog (vintage analog synth emulator), Drum Machines (classic drum machines sounds), Session Drums (acoustic drums), and Essential Instrument Collection 2 (wide range of acoustic and electric pianos, guitars, bass, drums, orchestral instruments, and more), and Latin Percussion (Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and African acoustic percussion instruments).

New for Ableton Suite 8 Education Software
World-class Sample Library
Ableton Suite 8's library is something big and something new, completely surpassing everything that Ableton has ever offered before. With the creative professional in mind, Ableton has put together a well-balanced and comprehensive tool set, including synthesis, real-world "Sound Objects," presets, grooves, templates and, above all, a wide-ranging set of beautiful sounds. Ableton has worked with some of the world's top sound designers to create a comprehensive set of truly useful, high-end sounds, each one an instrument in its own right, for a total of 1,600 expressive sounds that are new to the line. The sounds are provided as instrument Racks with a finely calibrated combination of instruments and effects.
No need to be quiet in this library.

Collision
Collision is a unique instrument for authentic mallet sounds and creative percussion. Co-developed with AAS, it uses physical modeling technology to reproduce real-world instruments such as xylophones, marimbas, and glockenspiels, but also provides enough depth to create truly dramatic new instruments and sounds.

Latin Percussion
Latin Percussion is a collection of acoustic percussion instruments such as congas, bongos, timbales, claves, shakers, tambourines, and bells from the worlds of Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and African music. It also comes with clips and grooves, so you don't just get the drums, you also get the drummer.

More Operator, more power
Operator, Ableton's renowned do-it-all synthesizer, has been given a major overhaul. Ableton opened up the hood, took a long hard look inside and did some serious hot-rod stuff. New filter types, more modulation routing options, and additive wavetable synthesis with drawable partials make Operator more powerful and flexible than ever.

Live 8

One of the ways Ableton Live software is an advantage to you, especially in the live setting, is its two main views which allow you to do all your work within a single application. The Session View is essentially a musical scratch pad. You can work out new ideas and improvise in a free and easy environment. Each cell in the Session View grid can hold a recording, MIDI file, or any other musical idea, whether they're recorded on the spot or dragged in from the browser. Then you can play your ideas in any order or any time you wish. The Arrangement View takes a more traditional, timeline-based approach to multitrack recording, MIDI sequencing, and other music production tasks. It will record all your actions as you improvise in the Session View, allowing you to edit them whenever you like. Either view you use is simple and basic enough to make your tasks simple and efficient, which is especially useful during a live performance. This makes it a perfect tool for studios, beat creators, DJs, sound designers, and anyone who wants to make music in a fun and easy way.

Version 8 enhances the Ableton vision of creative, real-time digital music with a wealth of techniques, effects, and most-wanted workflow improvements

New groove engine
Groove patterns can add life and swing to straight sequences. Ableton Live 8's new groove engine lets you apply groove patterns in real time, extract grooves from audio or MIDI sources, and quantize audio and MIDI in real time. It also comes with a new groove library.

New warping engine
Live 8 introduces a more direct way of working with warping and some important Warp Mode enhancements. You can now warp audio events by adjusting the events themselves on the timeline. Beats Mode has been updated, and there's a completely new Complex Warp Mode. Plus, you can slice audio files to MIDI tracks based on transients.

Looper
A much-requested feature, the Ableton Looper effect gives you classic sound-on-sound looping without the limitations of a hardware device. Looper is set up for remote operation, so you can record, overdub, undo, and more without touching the computer.

Effects
Ableton Live 8 includes five powerful new effects: Vocoder, Multiband Dynamics, Overdrive, Limiter, and Frequency Shifter. These effects cover all the well-known aspects of these devices, but really shine due to some innovative features and enhancements from the Ableton labs.

    Slice by transient: slice audio to MIDI-based on Live 8's new transient analysis
    Enhanced Beats Warp Mode for improved warping of percussive material and new control options
    Improved Complex Warp Mode using élastique Pro for warping complex, polyphonic material with fewer artifacts

    Looper
    Set up for remote operation so you can record, overdub, undo, and more using a single footswitch (not included) and without touching the computer
    Endless overdubs, tape-loop style for infinite improv jams
    First loop sync: Live reads the tempo from the length of the first loop you record and automatically syncs up to eliminate timing issues and let you record without the click
    Simple loop management: drag-and-drop a loop from Looper into a clip slot to make a clip; drag a clip back again to reload it into Looper
    Multiple Looper sync lets you run as many Loopers as you want without any synchronization headaches

    5 New Effects
    Vocoder is classic vocoding plus advanced, intricate control for flexibility and rich sound design
    Multiband Dynamics: effective processing plus a refreshing approach to visualizing the dynamics involved lets you really see and hear what's going on
    Overdrive: models the circuits found in legendary stompboxes and forms a perfect complement to Saturator and Dynamic Tube
    Limiter: an effective brick-wall limiter that will keep your peaks in check
    Frequency Shifter: frequency shifting and ring modulation for flange effects, atonal harmonics, and the sound of 50s science fiction

    Workflow enhancements
    Crossfades in Arrangement View for real-time, non-destructive crossfades, neatly integrated into Live's familiar workflow.
    The enhanced MIDI editor now features step recording, an insert marker, and editing improvements.
    Group tracks let you group selected tracks (e.g. a group for drum tracks or a group for all backing vocals), and each group works like a separate mix buss with its own effects and routing settings
    Collapse grouped tracks to preserve screen real estate.
    Multi-parameter manipulation
    Magnify the user interface for optimal visibility on dark stages or hi-res screens and zoom out for the big picture
    Browser waveform display: Audio and MIDI browser preview now with waveform display and scrubbing for more informed browsing and file selection
    Improved configuration and control for plug-ins with numerous parameters.

    Other features

    Powerful and creative MIDI sequencing of software and hardware instruments
