Ableton has announced the public beta of the Ableton Live 9.1 update, giving registered users of Live 9 Suite, Standard, and Intro new Live and Push features. For Live 9.1, users gain the ability to open two windows simultaneously on both one or two monitors. This allows both the session and arrangement views to be open at the same time, or for Live’s sample display or MIDI note editor to be viewed separately. Additionally, the update includes a new rendering algorithm aimed at guaranteeing better audio quality when exporting from higher to lower sample rates.
For Push, the Live 9.1 update gives users the melodic step sequencer. This feature allows users to enter notes manually or play notes by hand in real time using Push’s pads. Additionally, all of Live’s automatable parameters can edited and push-sequenced directly from Push’s encoders.
The beta for Ableton Live’s 9.1 update is available now to all registered users of Live 9 Suite, Standard, and Intro. For more information and download links, go to Ableton.com/En/Beta.
