As I’m sure all of you Ableton fanatics have heard, Ableton and Soundcloud are totally into one another. Owners of Ableton are eligible for a Free Soundcloud Pro account (for 5 months) and Soundcloud users are eligible for Live Lite, which previously only came with the Justin Bieber Paper Jamz Keytar. So, we’re stoked, right?
But, to be honest, I’m not that stoked. Frankly, if I wanted a Soundcloud Pro account, I would have one already. And I don’t really have the need to upload 36 hours of music (I’m not Sigur Ros). My greatest hope is that the Soundcloud deal will bring in some more Ableton newbs who will be below us on the great Ableton chain of being, thus giving the people on the Ableton Forum more people to abuse. j/k. I really do hope that it will bring in more people who want to learn about music production. The more, the merrier!
I’m really interested, though, in the “Publish to Soundcloud” capability that the new Ableton update apparently has (I’m superstitious and NEVER update my Ableton immediately). Do you guys think that that was a key feature to add? Will it change your workflow? YOUR LIFE?
Let me know in ye olde comments.
