Ableton Live – Lutris
Improved warping, new Tuner, Max 7 and more Live 9. Transients are punchier in Complex and Complex Pro modes, downbeat detection has been improved and warping is now even more accurate. The new Warp Selection command lets you warp a selected portion of a sample to a precise bar length.
Along with further under-the-hood improvements, Live 9. In a new video, Mad Zach shares his strategies for playing with the 64 pad layout, tweaking individual sounds, and some useful production tips for getting punchy drums — all on the basis of the free 64 Pad Lab Pack. Further Push refinements Live 9. Live 9. See the complete release notes for Live 9.

The monitoring state would not be displayed when the routing target was set to “No Input”, even if a signal was routed to this track’s input from a different track. As a consequence of the new Simpler features, Live Sets created with this version cannot be opened with previous versions anymore.
Updated manual, lessons and info text translations. Bugfixes: Live would crash when canceling a freeze action, if this was performed on a previously frozen and flattened Clip. Live would crash at startup if the preferences were corrupted. Fixed a crash that could occur when using the ‘x2’, ‘:2’, or “Warp As” controls in Simpler, if there was no sample present. Fixed a crash which might occur when creating a time selection on Group tracks in Arrangement View.
When converting Simpler to Sampler, the Sample Start marker would be visually misplaced. When dragging unwarped Clips over the section of a song where the tempo was automated from a low value to a higher one, Clips stored in the clipboard would appear after the dragged Clip. When resizing a Clip past its limit, the dragged edge would behave erratically when it was not on a grid position or when the grid was disabled with a modifier.
When resizing Live horizontally, the positioning of Max Device windows would not adjust correctly. When exporting audio from Looper, the resulting Clips would inherit the wrong color. Live might run into issues when writing files to disk on Windows, if the file path contained non standard unicode characters.
Some audio clips from the Core Library would open in the wrong tempo. It is now possible to adjust the Input and Output routing and the Monitoring state from Push 2. This works for both Push 1 and 2.
When transport is active, a progress bar on the Push 2 display indicates the playback phase for each of the currently playing Clips. Added a visual feedback for the count-in on the Push 2 display.
The logic is reversed when focused on Session View. Session Record and Arrangement Record are now independent from each other.
By default, Fixed Length now respects the Launch Quantization setting. This works with Push 1 and 2. Different sensitivities are in place for the Push 2 pad matrix, depending on the function of the pads in the current layout.
This is specifically aimed at avoiding inadvertently changing the loop selector while playing Drum Rack pads. It is now possible to delete the currently selected Clip in Arrangement via Push.
It is now possible to duplicate Clips in Arrangement from Push. When the focus is set to Arrangement View, ‘New’ is not available on Push anymore. Improved the matching between pad and display colors on Push 2.
Improved the matching between Live and Push 2 colors. On Push 2, the color white in Live is translated as yellow, since white is used to indicate selection. The intensity of the LEDs on in the lower display buttons has been dimmed for Push 2, to create more contrast against the currently selected track.
Improved the performance when moving the Session Ring horizontally with Push. Push 2 only. Flag markers for Simpler and Audio Clips are now properly outlined on the Push 2 display. The fade-in and fade-out visuals on Simpler are now represented differently from Loops on Push 2. The Push 2 firmware has been updated to 1. This version allows to automatically adjusts the LED white balance for units produced in the factory from November Also, this delivers a new pad algorithm that improves the sensitivity of Push pads when playing with wrist pressure.
It also contains a fix for cases where Push 2 buttons might double-trigger, and improves the stability of the MIDI data sent from the Push encoders. Push Bugfixes: When recording multiple clips at the same time, triggering one clip would cause also the other ones to stop recording. Live would crash when enabling the Push 2 Control Surface script on some systems.
As a result of the fix, some display functions of Push 2 still won’t work. Improved the error logging to find out more about this issue. The Push 2 display process would not start on Windows, if non-standard unicode characters were contained in the user profile name.
When muting or unmuting a track while in Mix Mode with Push 2, the state color of the track’s meters would only update if its peak level changed. When changing Layout, the Step Sequencer page would reset. The step sequencers might malfunction when odd time signatures were in use. When step-sequencing a Clip in Arrangement View, the playhead would not be shown on Push 2. When a Drum Rack or Instrument Rack was frozen, it was still possible to edit the Chain’s mix parameters.
This button only appears if Link is enabled in the Preferences. Loading a new Set disables Link. Improved the responsiveness of the Tuner device. Updated the Live manual and a number of lessons and info texts. Bugfixes: Fixed a bug which caused Live to hang when loading certain Live Sets.
When duplicating a track, Clip modulation would not play back for the newly created track. When triggering a recording with count-in enabled, Simpler could start playing back Warped samples from the wrong position. Live could crash when loading a Live Set where the ‘EXT’ button is saved as active, if Link was enabled in the preferences. Fixed a rare crash which could occur when using Complex or Pro Warp modes.
Vinyl Distortion would not report its latency to Live, thus would not be correctly compensated. Changes for Push: Push 2 Firmware update v 0. In Session mode, holding duplicate allows copying and pasting a Clip to a Clip Slot of choice.
In the melodic step sequencer, stepped automation is now linked to note length. It is now possible to convert an audio clip to a new drum rack pad on Push 2. When converting an audio Clip to Simpler, the device chain content is now copied from the original track to the destination track.
In the Drum Rack Step Sequencer, it is now possible to copy and paste a step into a different part of the Clip for Push 1 and 2. It is now possible to copy and paste notes across pitches in the Melodic Step Sequencer for Push 1 and 2.
In both the melodic and Drum Rack step sequencer, note length can now be adjusted via the pads, by holding the pad where the step exists, and one pad at its right. Scales Layout settings are now also stored within a Live Set. When using Simpler in Slicing mode, holding ‘Delete’ and pressing a Slice will remove all its steps in the currently selected Clip, if any exist. In addition to that, holding ‘Quantize’ and pressing a Slice will quantize all the events for that Slice.
When cycling through Layouts with Push 2, a notification is now declaring the current mode of operation of the pads. Count-in would be ignored when a recording was triggered via Push, in cases where a Clip was already active. Under certain circumstances, the Push 2 display could go blank when selecting a track containing Simpler, if a really long sample was loaded into that device. Disabling ‘Warp’ would cause the zoom in Simpler to jump to an unusual zoom level on the Push 2 display.
The master meter on Push 2 would not turn entirely red, as it does in Live, when the signal was clipping. Display brightness settings would not be restored correctly on Push 2 after power cycling the device. When a Group Track is selected, using ‘Add Track’ to add an instrument would lead to unexpected results. If ‘Accent’ was enabled, changing any of the Note Settings in the step sequencer would cause the velocity for this step to jump to When dragging a sample from an audio track into Simpler from Live, Push 2 would erroneously still display the audio Clip view, even if the track containing Simpler was selected.
After a Drum Rack pad containing Simpler is selected, Device Mode would still display its controls upon selecting a different track. Improved the reliability and priority of the audio thread when using ASIO drivers. This contributes a noticeable performance improvement and fixes a few cases where Live would drop out when using certain audio interfaces.
Improved the performance of Ableton Devices on Windows. Bugfixes: Live could crash when exporting audio or freezing, if Simpler contained a very long audio file. Live would crash when performing ‘Undo’ after dragging a sample onto Simpler’s breakout view. Occasionally, the grid lines for certain devices e. Certain Audio Unit parameters would show the wrong value in the Device View after instantiation. Under certain circumstances, the Launchpad Pro might not initialize correctly. Fixed a bug which prevented Max for Live devices from grabbing the Launchpad Pro matrix in the available User modes.
Fixed a bug which prevented Max for Live devices from grabbing the Launchpad matrix in the available User modes. On Push 2, playing clips now pulse in their assigned clip color, instead of green.
Recording clips pulse between clip color and red. Device selection is now remembered on a per-pad basis on Push 2. Improved the waveform zooming behavior on Push 2 for both Simpler and audio Clip mode.
If fades are enabled in Simpler, these will be displayed also on Push 2. The zoom level is now represented graphically, whereas before a numeric value was used. Waveform updates are faster when switching between different Simpler instances. When duplicating an Audio Clip or a Drum Rack pad based on Simpler, the waveform visualization of the copied item would not be preserved.
Improved performance when scrolling vertically in Session View with Push 2. In a context of hotswapping presets, the “Load” feature in the Push 2 browser is set by default on “Load Next”. In the former case, all drum pads will start pulsing white as long as the browser is open, whereas for hot-swapping a single pad, that pad is pulsing. Added a “Load previous” in the Push 2 browser.
It is now possible to load a device faster from Push 2, without needing to enter its folder. Previously, ‘Press Browse to load a sample’ would be erroneously displayed also when focused on Return or Master tracks. It is now possible to use “Warp as x bars” also while the sample is not warped yet. In Simpler, Waveform Slice points and Start, End flags displayed the wrong color when switching between tracks of different color. Scale Layouts are now available for Push 2 as well.
The Push 2 Firmware is upgraded to version 1. This is a maintenance update. Under certain circumstances the channel meters would not be displayed when switching between Track Mix Mode and Global Mix Mode on Push Previously, it was not possible to delete Return tracks from Push 1 and 2. Push 1 would become unresponsive after performing ‘Slice to Drum Rack’.
Device selection would not be remembered by Push 2 for Effect Racks. When switching to Clip mode with Push, Live would keep displaying device mode. When selecting devices with Push in a long chain, Device View in Live would not auto-scroll anymore. When adding plug-in parameters to the parameter list in Device View via ‘Configure’, the device bank in Push Device mode would only update after switching back from a different mode or track.
The Push Display could go blank when loading certain plugin presets or when switching through device banks with Push 2. The Push 2 display would crash when browsing plug-ins, if the plug-in folder contained a number of devices which exposed the exact same name to Live.
Adjusted the timing a notification is displayed on Push 2, which now is in relation to the length of the text. Link and The Bridge prevent each other from starting once switched on. Moreover, Link and The Bridge both switch off External sync when activated. The Python framework has been updated to support Python 2. When tweaking Warp mode specific parameters in Simpler i. Previously, these would be only updated on a per-note basis.
Improved the time required to slice an audio sample to a Drum Rack. Slicing visualization improvements and other minor cosmetic tweaks for Simpler and Sampler. Add a preference to re-enable random clip colors. Updated fonts and added a number of special characters. The Live 8 Legacy Mode in Operator has been renamed to something more meaningful.
Performance improvements in waveform rendering. Bugfixes: Recovering Live sets after a crash would not succeed under certain circumstances. Live could hang at launch while displaying the splash screen on Windows Live would crash on OSX Tracks created by dragging and dropping a Rack or Rack preset will now correctly be assigned with a new track color.
Live might become unresponsive on OSX if no Max application could be found. Furthermore, Live would not find Max 7 on its own on Windows. Live could hang when loading sets referencing Max devices, if these were saved with Max 6. Audio files would not retain the color saved in the respective. Replaced one redundant color in the Live color sequence. Simpler would cause an unusual high memory usage if the user had set ‘Complex’ as the default mode for Warping.
Live would crash when cropping samples in Sampler. A crash could take place when playing back sliced samples in Simpler, if ‘Snap’ had previously been activated in Classic or One-Shot mode.
A crash could occur when dragging the Start Marker to the very end of a file in Simpler and playing back a warped, looped sample with ‘Snap’ active. Live could crash when playing back warped samples in Simpler.
The crash would occur when a new note began playing at the exact same time that another playing note was ending, if that also choked or retriggered the previous note. When slicing an audio Clip to a Sampler based slicing preset, all slices would be assigned to the same root note.
Simpler’s playhead could jump unexpectedly when starting the transport while playing back warped samples. Dragging a selection of an arrangement clip into Simpler now sets the start and end flags according to the selection. Snap is automatically disabled when slicing a Simpler to a Drum Rack. This ensures that the sound of playback does not change after slicing a Simpler to a Drum Rack. Changing Simpler’s playback mode via the keyboard would not be undoable. When dragging the Simpler start flag towards the end of the sample, this would overlap with the End flag, which then could not be clicked nor dragged anymore.
The same behavior occurred the other way around the End flag might have covered the Start flag. The text in the Simpler ‘Warp As’ button would not be displayed properly when running Live in a language other than English. Reduced audible artifacts and improved timing for samples warped with Complex and Complex Pro. The OSR filter might produce unwanted artefacts when used with high frequency and resonance settings.
The modulation destinations for the new legacy filters in Simpler and Operator are now hidden and updated correctly when upgrading a device. The spread pitch control is now disabled if Simpler is using Re-Pitch as warping mode. This enables muting tracks, bypassing devices, soloing tracks and stopping Clips with one single button press. Improved encoder responsiveness when selecting a parameter through a list on Push 2.
Improved the Push initialization process when the unit is power cycled while Live is open. Push 2 Firmware updated to v1. This fixes a problem where the hardware would sometimes fail to initialize on Windows. This Firmware update is also intended to mitigate unexpected high velocity values which might be triggered when Push pads are played softly.
This is an intermediate step towards a proper fix. Please note that, depending on your pad sensitivity settings, it might now be more difficult to reach maximum velocity. It is now possible to load and hotswap samples in audio tracks on Push 2. This is achieved by first entering Clip mode. Sample names are now displayed in the browser while hotswapping. Scales mode can now act as a momentary toggle if held.
When an empty drum pad is selected, ‘Add Device’ will work like the ‘Browse’ button, thus it will not prompt the user to swap the entire Drum Rack anymore but rather will enable to load a device or sample inside the pad. After converting an audio Clip to a Simpler from Push 2, device mode will be selected automatically.
When adding a new device to a previously selected pad, the added device will now always be selected. Live would crash when converting a Clip to Simpler, if the device default for Dropping Samples on Device View consisted of a Simpler instance inside an Instrument Rack. When loading a sample from the browser, Simpler’s “Mode” would be displayed as “Classic” on Push 2, regardless of the default for “Dropping Samples on Device View”.
When converting between Simpler and Sampler, Push 2 would lose device selection. Under certain conditions, the waveform in Simpler flickered on display when zooming in on longer samples. When zoomed out on a long sample, it is now possible to see an indication of the existing slices on the Push 2 display. Under certain circumstances the Push pads would not reflect the selected slice when using a sliced Simpler. Mute and Solo would not work on Push 2 if the currently selected track was outside the Session Ring.
When moving a channel towards the left while in ‘Mix’ mode, its channel meter would stop working on Push2. When renaming a macro inside a Rack, the changes would not be immediately reflected on Push 1 and Push 2’s display. Push would keep showing the loop selector in sequencer mode after deleting a Clip. The display could get stuck in User mode on Push 2. Additionally, it is now possible to momentarily enter User mode by holding the respective button. The color mapping for Push 2’s step sequencers has been improved, to better reflect different velocity ranges.
The Arrow Keys would stop working after switching between note and session mode while using the Push 2 browser. Selecting a scene in Live would cause Clip selection from Push not to work anymore.
No auto preview was available for the currently selected item when navigating to a list using an encoder. Under certain circumstances pressing ‘Add Track’ and loading a new device would swap the instrument residing in the currently selected track instead.
After using ‘Collect All and Save’, Simpler instances would fail to display a waveform due to the changed file path. Improved waveform rendering when switching through tracks and selecting Drum Pads. Previously, Push 2 would only show the left channel for stereo waveforms.
As of now, both channels are displayed in overlay. On Push 1, plugin parameter names would not update correctly anymore if these change dynamically e. In addition, Push 2 now also updates such plugin parameter names dynamically. Push 1 can now utilize custom device banks for Simpler. Dynamic parameter banks are in place for Push 1 as well. Parameters that don’t have an effect due to some other parameter being disabled will now be hidden. The encoder resolution for Push 1 was significantly different as of Live 9.
This has now been rectified. Fractions were not shown correctly for Simpler on the Push1 display. Quantized parameters were not displayed correctly on Push1’s bar graph. Improved meters: the track volume meters now show both peak and RMS levels. Simpler has been completely overhauled with a new interface, Warping, slicing, and new analog modelled filters build in conjunction with Cytomic.
Audio Effect Racks now load with devices hidden. Sets created with 9. When trying to Save a set created with a previous version in 9. A breakout view is added for Simpler. The breakout view can only be displayed when Simpler has a valid sample The Warped waveform is displayed accordingly in Simpler.
Added a button in the Simpler breakout which warps the region between the sample’s start and end markers as a certain number of bars. Added One Shot mode in Simpler. Slicing mode has been added to Simpler. When active, all transients between start and end flags will be used for generating the slices It is now possible to normalize a sample via a context menu option by right clicking on Simpler’s waveform.
Added the possibility to slicing to a Drum Rack from Simpler. A sample volume control Gain is now added to Simpler. When loading a Simpler, Auto Filter or Operator preset created with a previous Live version, the devices will work in legacy mode, in order to preserve the original sound. The filters will be automatically upgraded if these were not active in the preset. Creating a multi selection for a number of chains in a Drum Rack enables setting the choke group for all chains at once.
When instantiating a plug-in, up to 64 parameters get configured automatically now. This is done via a new context menu entry available in Live’s plug-in device. Improved performance when drawing waveforms for large sets with many clips.
Introduced a limitation to how many time a sample can be sped up or slowed down via “:2” or “x2” respectively, in order to save CPU power. Improved the automation smoothing for the new filters in Simpler, Operator and Auto Filter. Removed the limitation to the amount of transposition affecting samples when using Complex or Complex Pro.
Bugfixes: It is not possible to inadvertently save a Live Set to the Trash anymore. The ‘Warp as x bars’ feature is improved so to provide more musical and predictable values.
Light blue color tones have changed to avoid being confused with the selection color when using the default Live skin.
Specific plug-ins would have triggered Live to configure non-functional parameters after a preset change. Changes for Push: Introduced support for Push 2. It is now possible to preview sounds from the browser with Push 1 as well. It is now possible to load Samples from Push. These will be instantiated in Simpler.
It is now possible to duplicate Drum Rack pads from Push 1 as well. Scales settings are now stored in Live sets. When recording with Fixed Length: Off, pressing fixed length will now stop recording and loop the last bars of the recording according to the fixed length setting. Fixed a bug which would cause the Clip selector in the step sequencer to be displayed after deleting a Clip.
MIDI Note Off messages could be skipped as a consequence of an audio drop out, resulting in hanging notes. CPU spikes leading to drop outs could occur when firing Clips, stopping Clips, Clip editing during playback, Clip scrubbing and when pressing the Back to Arrangement button.
This bug fix also improves scaled drawing performance on Windows bit. Changes for Push: The step sequencer ‘Note Settings’ view could not be exited anymore if accessed while in Hotswap mode. Replaced the icon for Current Project in the browser sidebar. Live would crash when dragging a Clip in the Groove Pool. Audio Units would stop passing audio after changing the sample rate.
Added control surface support for the Akai Professional Advance keyboard series. Bugfixes: Fixed a crash which might take place in Live 9. Auto-scrolling in session view could get stuck after releasing the mouse, when dragging a device across the splitter between browser and session view. Fix a rare crash which could occur when closing plugin windows on Mac. Improved tempo detection for warped audio files where the tempo appears to be constant.
Improved warp downbeat detection. The first warp marker 1. Improved the sound of Complex and Complex Pro Warp modes. Added the option “Warp Selection as x-Bar Loop” in the context menu when right clicking on a time selection inside an audio clip.
Live Sets that contain Max for Live devices or third-party plug-ins now have lower latency. The latency introduced by a device is now displayed in the status bar, when hovering over the title bar with the mouse. No latencies are shown when latency compensation is turned off. Automation and Modulation are now fully latency compensated. Modifying the Arrangement loop brace with mouse or keys will not affect the current track selection, while previously all tracks were selected as soon as the braces where adjusted with the mouse.
The Serato bridge is now compatible with Live 9. Updated and Kits with better sounding Kicks and Snares. The Session Ring would not be entirely displayed on screen anymore when navigating through tracks if the Live Set contained folded Group tracks. Fixed a bug in the Axiom Air 25, 49 and 61 Control Surface remote script, where the Send mix mode controlled the available Sends for the currently selected channel, instead of controlling Send A for the first 8 channels.
Fixed a bug which caused artefacts in the waveform visualisation when increasing the Gain on low amplitude audio clips. The Live browser “All Results” label would not remember the settings for the optional second column. Fixed a rare crash which might happen on OS X with certain input sources. Fixed a crash which might occur when deleting several Max for Live devices from a Live Set at once.
Live would crash when quitting the application while renaming a Groove in the Groove Pool. A Live Set might become corrupt when saved after a crash recovery, if the original Live Set had meanwhile been modified by a different Live instance. Notes at the beginning of Clips would not be triggered when rendering or freezing tracks containing Max for Live devices or third party plugins.
Remote mappings via a Max for Live device would not work for toggle parameters anymore. Minor adjustments to the translations of Clip context menus. Overdrive would report a wrong latency value, thus would not correctly be compensated. Redux would report a wrong latency value when in Soft mode, thus would not correctly be compensated.
Minor GUI bugfixes for high resolution displays. Fixed a bug which could cause graphics glitches and crashes on OSX when using high resolution displays. Fixed a bug where the mouse cursor would stay in stopwatch or beachball mode until the user physically moved the mouse. This would happen after loading devices, live sets, or anything else which would necessitate the use of the stopwatch cursor. Updated the pixel font used primarily in device LCDs like Operator for retina displays. Also improved the aspect of envelope curves drawn in the device’s LCD displays.
Fixed a glitch where the modulated value would become visible as an orange dot while dragging a slider, even if no modulation exists.
Holding “Delete” and tapping an encoder on Push resets the respective parameter to the default setting. Holding “Shift” while turning an encoder on Push changes the respective parameter with finer resolution.
Improved buttons readability on Push. The Repeat and Metronome buttons now blink if active.
Ableton Live – Lutris
This contributes a noticeable performance improvement and fixes a few cases latency ableton live suite 9 free download Live would drop out when using http://replace.me/18490.txt audio interfaces. Negative sample offset modulation of the Beats warp mode would not work correctly and could lead to disk overloads. When holding one of the 8 main encoders, touching abletonn ‘Swing’ or ‘Tempo’ encoders will not take over the display, to laetncy a ‘flickering’ LCD. Add to Cart. Kristal audio engine is a powerful multi-track recorder, audio sequencer and mixer – ideal читать anyone getting started with recording, mixing and mastering digital audio. Auxiliary audio outputs of certain VST plug-ins would not be delay-compensated anymore. Push Bugfixes: When recording multiple clips at the same time, triggering one clip katency cause also the other ones to stop recording.
