Ableton announces Live 10.1 - adds user wavetables, new devices, workflow upgrades, VST3 support and more

Ableton

Ableton has announced Live 10.1, which "expands the possibilities for making and shaping sound, as well as improving key features for editing and finalizing music". The update will be free for all Live 10 owners and is now in beta.

The new features in Live 10.1 include:

  • User Wavetables: Musicians can now extend the capabilities of Wavetable's oscillator.
  • section by importing their own wavetables or any sample into the device.
  • Channel EQ: A flexible and simple EQ with curves and gain ranges suitable for a variety of audio material. The shape of the filters adapts based on how controls are set to always provide musical results.
  • Delay: Combines Simple Delay and Ping Pong Delay and adds feature upgrades. Ping pong behavior, as well as Jump, Fade-In and Pitch controls from those devices are all accessed from the front panel.
  • New automation features: Musicians get a palette of automation shapes to choose from.
  • the ability to stretch and skew automation and enter values with their numerical keypad and easier access to clip modulation in Session View. Live now also detects curved movements inside automation and can merge multiple breakpoints into C- and S-shapes.
  • Improvements to zooming and scrolling: Live 10.1 makes switching between detailed views and big-picture editing faster with streamlined keyboard shortcuts, pinch zooming on compatible computers, a resizable Arrangement Overview window, and more.
  • Track freezing with sidechains: Freezing tracks that contain sidechain routing is now possible.
  • VST3 support: Live 10.1 now supports VST3 plug-ins.
  • Export return and master effects: Musicians now have the option to export single tracks and groups with return and master effects applied.

Fantastic! Looks like Ableton was hard at work with this update and release.

VST3 support.

New FX devices "Delay" and "Channel' EQ"

And a great and required fix rolled into this release/version that was originally in 10.0.6b1 is the fix to prevent the clearing of I/O names in Preferences if the Audio Device changes (or fails to load) in my case.

THANKS.
