Ableton Live Lite 5.0 – Free Update for registered users

registered uses of Live Lite 4 and Live Delta can update to Live Lite 5
for free. Many of you have Live Lite 4 and don’t know it as it came
bundled with many software and hardware packages. There are so many
great new features in the 5 update, it is definitely worth the effort
to dig through you discs to see if you have it.

Just to remind you of what’s new in Live 5 – here is a marketing blurb:

"New additions to M-Audio’s version of Live Lite include full ReWire
Support, MIDI Remote Control, Mackie Control Support, Complex Warp
Mode, Clip Freeze, Plug-in Delay Compensation, Arrangement Locators,
Live Clip Format, Searchable Browser, New Preset Management and
Effect/Device groups, and new effects such as Beat Repeat and Saturator."

So what’s the difference between the full and lite version?

  • Live 5 has an unlimited number of audio and MIDI tracks – Ableton Live Lite 5 gives you four audio tracks and four MIDI tracks.
  • Live Lite 5 will not include compressed audio support and records in 16
    bit quality.

If after using the lite version you decide to someday upgrade to the
full version, "your experience and files are completely transportable".

Registered owners of Live Lite 4 and Live Delta can download a free update to Live Lite 5 from Ableton’s website at

the other huge difference between live lite and live is that live has numerous drum machines and synths available. live lite is just a shell for recording. it also does not include the walkthrough tutorial that live has.
