Ableton Live 8 release tour: Thank You!

In May and June, Ableton and AKAI Professional teamed up to tour Germany, Austria and Switzerland to show off their latest releases: Ableton Live 8 and the AKAI APC40 controller.

We would like to thank everyone who attended our tour stops and showed their passion for our products. The tour was a great success, drawing an overwhelming number of attendees (more than 1,000 in total). We would also like to say a big thank you to our dealers and to SAE Zürich and SAE Geneva, who hosted the events. Last but not least, thanks to our product specialist Dankmar Klein, who did an amazing job presenting Ableton Live and the APC40 at 23 stops in only 5 weeks.

With each workshop registration, attendees signed up to win some great prizes. Congratulations to the winners:

Ableton Nerdbag from Airbag Craftworks: David R. (Cologne)

Ableton T-shirts: Patric B. (Saarbruecken), Oliver R. (Berlin), Max P. (Munich), Daniel B. (Frankfurt), Benjamin D. (Cologne)

And thanks for the fabulous response to our workshop tour survey, we've gained some very valuable feedback. The winners of the survey prize draw (for Ableton goodie bags) are:

Matthias K. (Hamburg), Stefan Z. (Karlsruhe), Oliver S. (Hamburg), Matthias D. (Ibbenbuehren), Oliver H. (Zurich)

See you next time!
