Ableton announced that Live 9.7 is currently in beta and will be released later this year.
Live 9.7 will be the latest free update with which Ableton continues to fine-tune Push as an instrument for music-making and performance. More sample manipulation options, a new drum layout and a collection of other on-screen workflow improvements means slicing, recording and programming beats is getting better than ever with Push.
New features in Live 9.7:
- New slicing functions – chop samples by beat divisions or regions, as well as manually or by transients.
- New drum layout – with 16 set velocity levels for playing and programming more dynamic beats.
- Hands-on audio routing – select and record ins and outs directly from Push for sampling external or internal audio without disrupting your flow.
- Visual feedback for tighter recordings – new display info shows clip phase and count-in so you can start and finish clip recordings more accurately.
- Hands-on color customization – color pads, tracks and clips using Push to make your performance easier.
- Better playability – pad sensitivity adapts to what you play, whether it’s drums or sustained chords.
