Ableton Releases MacTel Version of Live
Ableton announced the release of LiveÂ 5.2, bringing immediate native Intel-Mac support. This development makes LiveÂ 5.2 one of the first professional audio applications on the market to run as a Universal Binary to take advantage of Appleâ€™s fastest machines: the new Intel-Mac.
Intel-Mac Live 5.0 users can purchase a Live 5.2 serial number for 49 USD/39 EURO via the Ableton website. Customers who purchase the upgrade to Live 6 from the Ableton website will receive a full refund of this 49 USD/39 EURO. Live 6 is scheduled for release late this summer. Complete information on Live 6’s specs, availability, and pricing will be made available this summer.
Intel-Mac users who purchased Live 5 after Steve Jobs’ announcement of the new Intel-Macs (January 10, 2006) will receive the Live 5.2 download at no additional charge.
For all other Live 5 users on PCs and non Intel-Mac machines, LiveÂ 5.2 will be released as a free bug-fix update.
