What’s new in Ableton LIVE 9.7
Ableton LIVE 9.7 was launched a couple of days ago and as usual they’ve come up trumps with a host of awesome new features.
Notably the new features also translate to many new improvements for the PUSH hardware too.
Ableton LIVE 9.7 have focused once again on improved workflows and made the PUSH even more standalone than before with less time spent on the actual computer. New sampling features are also going to improve creativity and workflow with more sample slicing options, a new drum layout and better onscreen display on the PUSH.
PUSH users will also be pleased that with Ableton LIVE 9.7 audio or MIDI can now be routed directly from the unit. This makes for an uninterrupted workflow when switching ins and outs for sampling and resampling.
The new slicing capabilities are available in all editions of Live 9 – from Lite to Suite.
The new upgrade is free to all existing Live 9 users and can be downloaded here
