Ableton Live 9.1 now in public beta
Ableton made it official yesterday, with the release of a “public beta” update to Ableton Live 9, which brings dual monitor support, and a new melodic step sequencer, among other improvements:
- Live 9.1 introduces support for two windows, including the option to place the windows on different monitors.
- For Push owners, Live 9.1 introduces a brand new melodic step sequencer.
- Improved rendering: If you’re working at a high sample rate (such as 96 kHz), you can now downsample to lower sample rates (such as 44.1 kHz) with no loss in quality. Also, rendering now uses multiple cores, which can result in much faster exports.
The Live 9.1 update is available in public beta and is free for owners of Ableton Live 9.
With Push it’s simple to move between keys with the touch of a button. Explore new harmonies and phrases across 64 velocity and pressure-sensitive pads. Push’s hands-on step sequencer allows you to enter notes manually or play them in, and now you can edit automation with step-by-step accuracy.
