Ableton has announced the release of Live 9.2, an update to the music production software for Windows and Mac.

Live 9.2 brings refinements to Live’s audio warping and introduces latency-compensated automation, a new Tuner device, and more.

For Push users this update brings the ability to use all 64 pads to play drums – and quickly flip back to 16 pads for step sequencing.

In addition, Max for Live now includes Max 7, the latest, most powerful version of Max.

Check the release notes for details on what is new. Live 9 is available for purchase starting at 79 EUR.

Ableton has also released a free 64 Pad Lab pack by Mad Zach, featuring five extensive Drum Racks tailored for use with Push’s 64 Pad mode.

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.
