many thanks to Lokki for this  8) 8)



originally released in july of 2004, (v4.14 released around dec2004/jan2005) we now have this mac os 9 version of Ableton
that suports MIDI Clips + MIDI tracks.. and most important of all..** VST instruments **!
(previously in v3 and lower it only supported VST effects like reverb/compressor etc)
this is an amazing piece of software and im every excited that we now have it available to be used
in mac os 9!!

For those of you not so familiar with this program, i urge you to download.. experiment.. drag some loops into tracks and experience what it can do for yourself hands on!! dont think of ableton as a standalone program, this program is used best when used in conjunction with other programs via rewire, f.e. recording/sampling sounds over rewire from another app such as reason.. this is the perfect match for reason v2.5!

if there is any software worth buying for mac os 9 this is it.. but u would not buy it if u didnt understand what it is and what it can do for you, I personally plan on buying ableton 9 but it is a larger investment purchase.. but i would say that of all programs u can buy this one, when learned + used properly, is worth every penny!!!! i have been in contact with ableton and they offered to sell this to me for 200$ (a reduced price for a license because its an older version) so if you have already learned the program and are using this professionally you may feel this program is worth paying for.. keep it in mind to contact ableton and ask to purchase a license for mac os 9.22 and they will most likely extend the same $200 reduced price offer to you!

Here for Download...
