Ableton Live 8.4 Beta with 64-bit SupportJuly 5th, 2012 ⋅ Tech ⋅ by jordan
For all you producers out there that have been waiting for the Ableton 9 to come out, you might want to hold on just a little longer. Ableton releases the new 8.4 beta version that will have 64-bit support, but I know its not the announcement that we were waiting for. Below is the official statement, but head over to Ableton to find out more.
We are pleased to announce the beta version of Live 8.4, featuring native 64-bit support. With 64-bit support, Sets in Live 8 can now accommodate much larger memory usage, and third-party plugins that support 64-bit. Registered Live 8, Suite 8, Live Intro or Live Lite 8 users can download the beta now.
The 64-bit version of Live works with PCs running Windows Vista/7/8 (64-bit) and with Intel-Macs running OS X 10.5 and up. The 64-bit version of Live 8 does not support Max for Live, video, or The Bridge. We are currently working with our partners to add support for these features.
The release version of Live 8.4 will be available later, as a free update for registered Live 8, Suite 8, Live Intro or Live Lite 8 users.
