Ableton has long been the number one choice for musicians, whether for songwriting, making beats, remixing or live performances. At SoundCloud, we know that many of you depend upon it, indeed many of our team members use it on a regular basis privately (and it’s even been used in a masterclass or two!). It’s therefore with great pleasure to announce that SoundCloud and Ableton, two great Berlin audio companies, have teamed up to give our communities something unprecedented and very, very awesome.
The news? Ableton now comes with SoundCloud sharing baked in – yes, upload straight to SoundCloud. To celebrate, SoundCloud is offering Ableton users 5 months of SoundCloud Pro, for free. You can find the details here. So what does the SoundCloud community get? Ableton has been generous enough to offer the entire SoundCloud community a free copy of Live Lite 8 so that everyone can get started making their own sounds.
(Our free Live Lite offer was only available until the 31st of May, 2012. You can however check out Ableton’s 30 day trial at http://www.ableton.com/free-trial )
And that’s not all – come May there will be a competition to compose a sound with parts from M83, Junior Boys and Nosaj Thing. Of course, you’ll need Ableton with SoundCloud to enter, so make sure to update your copy of Ableton to get SoundCloud sharing and if you don’t have it yet, claim your copy today!
At the moment the brave Clouders are busy celebrating at PICKNICK, dancing to the music of some fantastic artists (1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8). It’s been one mad week of looong days and nights of coding, hacking and communicating with lovely SoundCloud members from all over the planet.
And now we’re live. Open. Ready to move your music.
We dedicate this opening release to the one and only Kate. We’ve listened to your music almost every day for a year straight. We’re all running up that hill.
This live-performer is truly one of the best in techno-europe.
He already played in some of the best clubs including PanoramaBar, Flex in Vienna, Click in Hamburg, Nitsa, Tresor and of course the HarryKlein in Munich. Let’s say hi to:
After lonely and quiet years of experiments and self-discovery he released his first 12″ called “Hypnoconsole” and got remixed by Munich-Techno-Hero Richard Bartz. The first livegigs followed directly and led him into smoky rave-basements, uproarious clubs, sunny open-airs, as well as shaky party-boats…
Due to excessive and unresting music-making Denis released lots of 12″s on fine labels like Traum/Trapez/MBF, Areal , Dial, Weave or Liebe*Detail. He has also made remixes for artists like Dominik Eulberg, Move D or Kid Alex and in 2006 he released his first highly acclaimed self-titled album on Ladomat and since then he is touring excessively througout whole europe.
His livesets are like a roller coaster ride of emotions.
Not just a great rave experience, but especially one of those Do you remember when? -feelings which stick although the moment itself is long gone. His regular appearance in magazine polls for best live act of the year proves that this is not just theory!
