Ableton Live 9.2 was recently released and along with the usual fixes Ableton has given users some new features to play with.
Here are the biggest new features:
Live 9.2 introduces several refinements to Live’s audio warping engine. The Complex and Complex Pro modes now feature punchier transients, even at extreme settings. We’ve also improved Auto-Warp and downbeat detection to better recognize when audio has a fixed tempo (as is often the case with electronic music) and warp it accurately.
Live 9.2 also introduces a number of latency-related improvements. Sets that contain Max for Live devices or third-party plug-ins now have lower latency. And automation is now fully latency compensated.
Along with further under-the-hood improvements, Live 9.2 also comes with a new Tuner device – sure to come in handy for guitarists or anyone else who uses hardware instruments.
64 pads for Push users
For users of Push, the Live 9.2 update introduces the ability to use all 64 pads to play drums and quickly flip back to 16 pads for step sequencing. Watch as finger-drummer extraordinaire Mad Zach performs a shape-shifting rhythm workout using all of Push’s pads:
Further Push refinements
The Live 9.2 update also brings improved aftertouch implementation to Push’s pads and the addition of aftertouch to many of Live’s core library sounds. In addition, Push’s touchstrip can now be used for modulation wheel control as well for pitch bend.
