Ableton Live 9.2 Now in Public BETA

Good news from Berlin! Ableton have recently released version 9.2 of Ableton Live for public BETA. There’s plenty to get excited about for Push and Live users alike. Check out the overview below.  

Live 9.2 is coming soon. This free update brings a number of significant improvements and additions to both Live and Push and is available for download as a public beta version.

Improved warping

Live 9.2 introduces several refinements to Live’s audio warping engine. The Complex and Complex Pro modes now feature punchier transients, even at extreme settings. We’ve also improved Auto-Warp and downbeat detection to better recognize when audio has a fixed tempo (as is often the case with electronic music) and warp it accurately.

Latency compensation

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.

Tuner included

Along with further under-the-hood improvements, Live 9.2 also comes with a new Tuner device – sure to come in handy for guitarists or anyone else who uses hardware instruments.

64 pads for Push users

For users of Push, the Live 9.2 update introduces the ability to use all 64 pads to play drums and quickly flip back to 16 pads for step sequencing. Watch as finger-drummer extraordinaire Mad Zach performs a shape-shifting rhythm workout using all of Push’s pads: 

Further Push refinements

The Live 9.2 update also brings improved aftertouch implementation to Push’s pads and the addition of aftertouch to many of Live’s core library sounds. In addition, Push’s touchstrip can now be used for modulation wheel control as well for pitch bend.

Live 9.2 is available for download now as a public beta.
