Ableton Live has announced the release of a public beta of version 9.2 of its Live music production software for Windows and Mac.
Live 9.2 is coming soon. This free update brings a number of significant improvements and additions to both Live and Push and is available for download as a public beta version.
Changes in Live 9.2
Improved warping — 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. Auto-Warp and downbeat detection has been improved to better recognize when audio has a fixed tempo (as is often the case with electronic music) and warp it accurately.
Latency compensation — 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.
Tuner included — 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.
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.
The Live 9.2 public beta for Windows and Mac is now available for download. More details are available in the release notes.

Ricardo F. Gomes has released a free beta of Cybermath, a wavetable synthesizer instrument for Windows.
My target with this synthesizer is to make some tool that allow you to make pretty much every desirable sound (in terms of synths obviously) , its not much advanced in terms of detail, there are things where you cant do it in precise measures… this might not be a good synth to make kicks per example, but i think to create inspiring patches or to create very unique sounds, this might be fun to experiment, i have tried most modern synths, they sound amazing, there are great plugins today, but really… some are not fun to use at all, either because they seem overcomplex, or the flow its not exactly straight forward…
So my goal with this plugin was to make something that you can very quickly immerse into what your doing,
each unit or module has its own window in order to not overcrowd with options in a single view… as i think it helps to navigate better…
Cybermath is available to download for Windows (VST).
