Ableton Live 8 beta:

Ableton Live 8 beta: demo track

Finally got around to joining the beta testing for Live 8 at version 8.0b11. Will spend every spare moment putting Live through it's paces over the next 3 days. 

So far, have just discovered the new Zoom feature. Hidden in the preferences, it can zoom Live's screen from 50%-200%. I really like the amount of screen real-estate a setting of 80% gives. Some users want the zoom feature on the GUI, personally I'm glad it's in the pref's. One of Live's main attractions for me is the uncluttered layout. 

Group tracks is also going to help out in this respect... you can now collapse a group into a single track (see above, indicated by the shaded Group Clip colouring).

more to follow....
