Ableton releases Live 9.2 as public beta

Ableton

Ableton has announced that the upcoming Live 9.2 update is now available as a public beta. This update improves and expands on several key functions of Live software, as well as adding new capabilities to the Push hardware instrument.

Live 9.2 introduces several refinements and improvements to Live's audio warping engine. The Complex and Complex Pro modes now are designed to feature punchier transients, even at extreme settings. Auto-Warp and downbeat detection have both been upgraded to better recognize fixed-tempo audio and warp it accurately – highly useful when working with electronic music.

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. Along with further under-the-hood improvements, Live 9.2 also comes with a new Tuner device – sure to come in handy (not only) for guitarists or anyone else who uses hardware instruments.

For Ableton's Push hardware instrument, the update to Live 9.2 brings the ability to use all 64 pads to play drums and quickly flip back to 16 pads for step sequencing. In addition, the touchstrip can now be used for modulation wheel control, as well as for pitch bend. The update also brings improved aftertouch response to Push's pads and the addition of aftertouch to many of Live's core library sounds.

Watch finger-drummer extraordinaire Mad Zach demonstrate the creative possibilities of using 64 pads in this Push performance video

Live 9.2 will be free for all owners of Live 9 and is available immediately for download as a public beta. All the details of what's new in Live 9.2 are available in the release notes.
