Ableton announced the release of Live 5.2, a Universal Binary application that delivers immediate native Intel-based Mac computer support. Intel-based Mac Live 5.0 users can purchase a Live 5.2 serial number for $49 from Ableton’s Website. Customers who purchase the upgrade to Live 6 from Ableton’s Website will receive a full refund of this $49. Live 6 is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2006. Complete information on Live 6's specs, availability and pricing will be made available this summer.
Intel-based Mac users who purchased Live 5 after Steve Jobs' announcement of the new Intel-based Macs (January 10, 2006) will receive the Live 5.2 download at no additional charge.
For all other Live 5 users on PCs and non-Intel-based Mac machines, Live 5.2 will be released as a free bug-fix update.
