Los Angeles, CA (April 10, 2006)–Ableton has launched Live 5.2, which delivers native Intel-based Mac computer support. Intel-based Mac Live 5.0 users can purchase a Live 5.2 serial number for $49 via the Ableton webshop.
Customers who purchase the upgrade to Live 6 from the Ableton webshop will receive a full refund of this $49. Live 6 is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2006. Complete information on Live 6’s specs, availability, and pricing will be made available this summer.
Intel-based Mac users who purchased Live 5 after Steve Jobs’ announcement of the new Intel-based Macs in January will receive the Live 5.2 download at no additional charge.
For all other Live 5 users on PCs and non-Intel-based Mac machines, Live 5.2 will be released as a free bug-fix update. Live is distributed in the U.S. by M-Audio.
