Looks like Cubase has been updated to version 5. That is not a true representation of Cubase's life, but I don't feel like doing the research to plot out it's chronology. Next, I discover that Ableton Live 8 has been announced. Also, information has been released about the fruits of their relationship with Cycling 74, the creators of MAX/MSP. Turns out that Cycling 74 has created an add-on for Live in the form of Max for Live. I feel that Max for Live warrants a separate post, so I will begin working on that soon.
While not announced at Namm, Renoise has been upgraded to version 2.
