    • Added control surface support for Akai APC40 MKII, APC Key 25, APC mini.

    • Looped clip envelopes could have an incorrect length after unlinking the envelope, linking it again and then moving the clip from Session View to the Arrangement View.

    • Loading a set containing many disabled UAD AU plug-ins may have resulted in a “UAD bandwidth allocation exceeded” error while loading the set.
    • Fixed a crash which could occur when quitting Live via the Mac OS X App Switcher (CMD+TAB).
    • Fixed a crash that could occur on Mac OS X when quitting the application while Live is buffering samples.
    • Fixed a crash which could occur in the 64-bit version when triggering multiple voices in Sampler and having the Shrink/Expand Envelopes feature enabled.

    • Fixed a crash that could occur under certain conditions when moving scenes and then using Undo.

    • Live would record MIDI notes at the wrong position when using Push’s Note Repeat function and having the track’s monitoring switch set to “No Input”.
    • Audio clip recording could be interrupted when choosing another track with Push, even if Exclusive Arm is deactivated in Live’s preferences.
