Ableton has announces the release of version 9.1.7 of Live, the music production software for Windows and Mac.
If you’ve used music software before, you’re already familiar with one half of Ableton Live. Live’s Arrangement View is a familiar working space: time moves from left to right, while tracks are stacked vertically.
But Live also features the revolutionary Session View: a unique sketchpad for improvising, playing and performing with musical ideas, without the constraints of the timeline. Freely and independently start and stop any number of audio or MIDI loops – everything stays in sync. Almost everything in Live works in real-time – add, reorder or remove devices, play with Live’s flexible track routing and more – all without interrupting your creative flow.
Changes in Live v9.1.7
- Improvements and feature changes:
- Added control surface support for M-Audio Oxygen 4th generation controllers.
- When choosing “All Individual Tracks” in the Export Audio/Video dialog, tracks using the External Instrument device would not be exported correctly.
- Fixed a bug which caused modulations for arrangement clips to disappear when undoing and redoing after duplicating a track.
- Improved fonts for Retina displays (Mac OS X only).
- Improved graphics for the Track Status Display and the Plug-in browser icon on Retina displays (Mac OS X only).
- Fixed a graphics problem which could occur on OS X 10.10 Yosemite when a Max for Live device was instantiated directly at application launch, e.g. by double-clicking an .als file or by having a template set containing a Max for Live device.
- Fixed a graphics problem which could occur on OS X 10.10 Yosemite when opening the “Export Audio/Video” dialogue and having the “Zoom Display” preference set to a value higher than 100%.
- The Simpler instrument could lose certain macro mappings after converting a Sampler to Simpler and then enabling Simpler’s Pitch Envelope.
- Fixed the spacing of the “Hz” icon on Simpler’s LFO Rate switch on Retina displays.
- Under certain conditions, the Tension instrument could produce unwanted noise bursts after loading a preset and then playing the first note.
- Live could crash when undoing and redoing after importing a clip or a track containing automation from the browser. Live would also keep crashing when recovering the Live Set from the undo file.
- Fixed a crash which could occur with the iZotope “Trash 2” VST plug-in on Windows.
- Fixed a crash which might occur on Windows while Live scans or loads certain UAD plugins.
Ableton Live is available for purchase at a 20% discount through January 15th, 2015.
