Ableton Live 9.2 has been released
Ableton Live 9.2 has just been officially released after being in BETA testing phase for a while.
The update is FREE to all registered users and includes enhancements that should please both Live users and owners of Ableton PUSH.
Here is a list of the new enhancements in Ableton Live 9.2.
With a number of improvements to latency issues, Ableton Live 9.2 now has fully latency compensated automation and assures users that Max for Live and third party plugins will now enjoy lower latency.
Better warping, a new tuner and Max 7
The audio warping engine in Ableton Live has always been one of its strengths and now in 9.2 this has refined somewhat. They claim punchier transients in Complex and Complex Pro modes, better downbeat detection and more accurate overall warping. There’s also a handy new feature called Warp Selection which allows you to warp a selected part of an audio sample to an exact bar length. They’ve also thrown in a new Tuner and Max for Live now includes Max 7.
Push Users – 64-pad mode and free Pack
With Ableton Live 9.2 Push users can now use all 64 Push pads to play drums, but can also flip back to 16 pads step sequencing effortlessly. Ableton have kindly thrown in a new free Pack which uses all 64 pads to get you started. It includes 5 Racks of samples including high-quality drums, percussion, loops, and one shot samples. The bonus is that even non Push owners also get the free Pack.
Most of the other enhancements in Ableton Live 9.2 seem to be aimed at Push users with improved aftertouch implementation to Push’s pads as well as aftertouch being added to many of Live’s core library sounds. The touchstrip on Push can also now be used for pitch bending and control of the modulation wheel.
