NAMM Update: Ableton, creators of Live, has announced a technology licensing partnership with leading soundware provider SONiVOX (formerly Sonic Implants). Under the terms of their agreement, Ableton will incorporate a selection of premium SONiVOX instruments into Live 6, adding a comprehensive instrument collection to the award winning music creation, production and performance suite.
SONiVOX instruments will be seamlessly integrated into Live 6, substantially extending the ability of Live users to do what they do best—make the most of each phase of the music-making process. An initial set of multi-sampled instruments will ship free with Live 6 with additional Expansion Sound Sets to be released in the near future.
Gerhard Behles, Ableton CEO, comments: “With the SONiVOX instruments, Ableton Live will become an even more responsive and musical tool for the composers, musicians and producers that have come to rely on Live for innovative solutions to their creative needs.”
SONiVOX President and Founder Jennifer Hruska agrees: “We are extremely excited about this partnership and the contribution it allows us to make toward enriching the full musical experience of Ableton’s creative community.”
