Ableton Live 8

Ableton has released version 8.0.2 of Live 8 and Suite 8, the music production software for Windows and Mac.

Changes in Live/Suite v8.0.2

  • Updated manuals.
  • Updated help pages.
  • Dragging a file from the OS into Live’s file browser copies the file by default instead of moving it. When pressing the copy modifier the file will be moved [4976].
  • Improvements for offline authorization.
  • Resizing tracks with ALT now only resizes tracks withing the same level of the group track hierarchy.
  • Unfold all (ALT-click the arrow) now works only in the same level of hierarchy – “resize all” and “unfold all” works now either on “player and group tracks”, or on “return and master tracks”.
  • In Session View, group tracks provide a “track launch” button in map mode.
  • The fold/unfold triangle of a group track is painted blue when a track inside is soloed.
  • In the file browser, the “create folder” command is available in the “parent folder” context menu.
  • Added an option for the Options.txt file to support Wacom Tablets. Adding the line ”-AbsoluteMouseMode” into Options.txt file switches Live into absolute mouse position mode.
  • Various bug fixes, details here.
