Midiman Inc. (Arcadia, Calif.) announced that it has assumed the exclusive distribution rights of Ableton's software products for the U.S., Canada and the UK.

"We are very pleased to be working with Midiman," said Ableton CEO Gerhard Behles. "Live [Ableton's software program] is finally going to fill a void that has always existed in audio software, and Midiman is strategically placed to help us fuel this next stage in the evolution of music production."

Live is an audio sequencer that is played like an instrument. It allows the user to improvise in real time with a palette of audio clips; clips can be turned on/off, manipulated, looped, re-ordered, combined, effected and re-recorded on-the-fly. All the samples used are adjusted to the tempo of the song in real time without changing pitch. Live records 24-bit audio, in addition to all actions made during a session, so that everything can be saved and post-edited in detail. All clips and parameters within Live can be triggered via MIDI, computer keyboard or mouse. The program supports Mac and PC, uses the Rewire and VST protocols, and syncs to MIDI clock and MIDI timecode.
