Recently Ableton announced that Live 9 will be launching in Q1 of 2013. In anticipation of the launch, they’ve begun a beta testing program. This beta program was rolled out in two phases. The first phase put the beta in the hands of professional testers and Certified Trainers. The second phase has now just launched, and is open to the public.
They have a maximum amount of people who can participate in the beta and, as you can expect, these slots filled up quickly. However, there is an opportunity to sign up going forwards. Ableton states, “The Ableton Live 9 beta is currently at maximum capacity. We will gradually be expanding the number of available testing slots as the beta continues, so please check back regularly.”
In order to participate in the beta program you need to already own a license to Live 8 or Suite 8.
