Live will now automatically repair its database in case it gets corrupt, e.g. due to a fatal write error or a sudden power outage during a database transaction, etc.
Live would always record the last received CC value into a MIDI clip, even if it was received before the actual recording was started. Live now ignores the last value and only records MIDI CC data that are received during the actual clip recording.

Bugfixes:

Live would allow to trigger changes from notifications via the Python API. This could lead to problems with Live’s Undo history or even to crashes and is no longer allowed. Note that this change might affect compatibility with 3rd party control surface scripts, i.e. scripts that are not natively supported by Ableton. Please contact the manufacturer of the script in case you encounter any problems.

Live v 9.1 Nov 20, 2013 MacOS X Intel
Improvements and feature changes

Added dual monitor support.
When exporting audio, sample-rate conversion is now done using the high-quality SoX Resampler Library, resulting in higher quality exports when rendering to a lower sample rate.
Live now uses multiple CPU cores when exporting audio and the normalisation process is faster than before.
When exporting audio files from Live with the option "Create Analysis File" enabled, Live will now save warp markers with the .asd file, so that information about the original tempo and tempo changes are correctly reused when re-importing the audio file into Live later on.
The 'Export Audio / Video' export dialog has been improved.
- It shows the same options whether launched from Session or Arrangement View.
- Some of the export settings have been regrouped to provide a better overview.

The menu item "Close Live Set" has been renamed to "Close Window". It will now close any secondary window that is open. If no secondary window is open, it does nothing.
The audio buffer size is now restricted to power-of-two values. Windows users should note that not all ASIO drivers support this and may still allow to use non power-of-two values. This can lead to a higher CPU load and higher latencies. Ableton recommends to always use power-of-two buffer sizes, i.e. 64, 128, 256, 512,... samples.
Optimised default presets for Auto Filter, EQ Eight, Saturator, Tension, Simpler, Sampler, Analog, Operator, Electric.
Added 10 new Simpler presets to the Core Library.
Updated manuals, lessons, info texts and translations.
Minor improvements for usage data reporting.
When creating a new track by dragging an instrument to the clip/device drop area, Live would keep the last selected clip stand-by-selected. Now it moves the selection to the clip slot that matches the Session View's crosshair.

Bugfixes

Improvements and feature changes

Live will now automatically repair its database in case it gets corrupt, e.g. due to a fatal write error or a sudden power outage during a database transaction, etc.
Live would always record the last received CC value into a MIDI clip, even if it was received before the actual recording was started. Live now ignores the last value and only records MIDI CC data that are received during the actual clip recording.

Bugfixes:

Live would allow to trigger changes from notifications via the Python API. This could lead to problems with Live’s Undo history or even to crashes and is no longer allowed. Note that this change might affect compatibility with 3rd party control surface scripts, i.e. scripts that are not natively supported by Ableton. Please contact the manufacturer of the script in case you encounter any problems.
Live would cut off all currently playing notes on a MIDI clip when engaging overdub recording in the Arrangement View.

Live could crash under certain conditions when using Japanese text input methods on Mac OS X.
Max for Live devices could be out of sync when exporting audio with multiprocessor support enabled.
When loading a Live set with a MIDI clip that contains modulation for Max for Live parameters of the "live.dial" type, the modulation values would sometimes not be restored correctly.
Live v 9.1 Nov 20, 2013 Windows
Improvements and feature changes

Added dual monitor support.
When exporting audio, sample-rate conversion is now done using the high-quality SoX Resampler Library, resulting in higher quality exports when rendering to a lower sample rate.
Live now uses multiple CPU cores when exporting audio and the normalisation process is faster than before.
When exporting audio files from Live with the option "Create Analysis File" enabled, Live will now save warp markers with the .asd file, so that information about the original tempo and tempo changes are correctly reused when re-importing the audio file into Live later on.
The 'Export Audio / Video' export dialog has been improved.
- It shows the same options whether launched from Session or Arrangement View.
- Some of the export settings have been regrouped to provide a better overview.
- "All Tracks" has been renamed to "Individual Tracks" in the "Rendered Track" chooser.
- The export dialog now shows information about the source and target sample rate.
The "Open Recent Sets" menu now has a "Clear List" and "Remove Unavailable Sets" option.
The menu item "Close Live Set" has been renamed to "Close Window". It will now close any secondary window that is open. If no secondary window is open, it does nothing.
The audio buffer size is now restricted to power-of-two values. Windows users should note that not all ASIO drivers support this and may still allow to use non power-of-two values. This can lead to a higher CPU load and higher latencies. Ableton recommends to always use power-of-two buffer sizes, i.e. 64, 128, 256, 512,... samples.
Optimised default presets for Auto Filter, EQ Eight, Saturator, Tension, Simpler, Sampler, Analog, Operator, Electric.
Added 10 new Simpler presets to the Core Library.
Updated manuals, lessons, info texts and translations.
Minor improvements for usage data reporting.
When creating a new track by dragging an instrument to the clip/device drop area, Live would keep the last selected clip stand-by-selected. Now it moves the selection to the clip slot that matches the Session View's crosshair.

Bugfixes

The mouse and keyboard could sometimes become unresponsive after zooming, scrolling or tweaking parameters on OS X 10.9 "Mavericks".
Automatic updates could break an installation if the update process was interrupted.
Automatic updates would not work when running Live in ReWire slave mode. Therefore, automatic updates are now turned off in this case.
Live would not check if there's enough free disk space available before applying an automatic update.
Fixed a problem which could lead to a memory leak in the Ableton Index and Web Connector processes.
Loading Live Sets and presets could take longer than necessary if the file contains references to missing samples.
The metronome timing would be incorrect after reloading a Live Set with a different time signature than 4/4.
Decreasing and then increasing the audio buffer size in the Audio preferences tab could cause permanent crackling on Mac OS X 10.7 or higher.
Two crossfaded clips running in 'Complex' or 'Complex Pro' warp mode could cause crackles and dropouts if the samples were time-stretched.
Negative sample offset modulation of the Beats warp mode would not work correctly and could lead to disk overloads.
The Sampler device occasionally produced a red 'D' (harddisk warning) if the sample is played very fast (high note, low base note). The fix reduces the likelihood of such disk dropout warnings.
Audio effects or racks with a high overall latency would not be rendered correctly. The beginning of the rendered file could contain a short period of the dry signal.
Fixed a bug that could cause parts of a waveform to disappear when dragging a warp marker.
Live would select clips slots when clicking and dragging in the empty area below the clips slots.
Key presses were not correctly forwarded to Live from VST plug-in windows or the video window (PC only).
Fixed a CPU performance problem which could occur with certain VST plug-ins.
Fixed a bug which could prevent certain AU plug-in windows from closing in the 64-bit version.
Live could crash when recording automation for VST or AU plug-ins on return tracks.
Looping automation in Session View clips was not correctly disabled when touching an automated parameter with the mouse.
MIDI sustain messages would be occasionally ignored when recording over an existing MIDI clip in the Arrangement View.
Irregular audio output values from Max for Live devices (i.e. "Not a Number" signals) would break downstream signal processing in Live. Such signals are now automatically replaced with silence.
Presets containing Max for Live devices from the User Library would sometimes not be shown in the browser's "Max for Live" label.
Max for Live API: The "length" property of a looped clip would reflect the distance from the clip start to clip end marker and not the length of the loop, as specified in the API documentation.
Max for Live API: Live could return a "bad number" error message when observing the "clip_trigger_quantization" property.
Live could crash when remapping a Max for Live device after using undo.
Live could crash when adding a drum rack from the "Autobeat" pack.
Mapping a MIDI message from a ReWire master application to one of Live's parameters could crash the ReWire host and freeze Live.
Live could crash when pressing CMD/CTRL + M or CMD/CTRL + K during startup.
Kit-Core 808 Kick, Toms and Congas could produce unwanted clicks when tweaking the “Low/High Cut” macros.
The "Shaperello Pad" preset could produce unwanted clicks when tweaking the "Erosion" macro.
Removed redundant choke group in Kit-SessionDry.
Fixed wrong notes in Scale preset "Minor Pentatonic Scale".
MIDI data routed from a track output to the Launchpad would be sent on the wrong MIDI channel.
Fixed LED-update for Track On/Off button on Reloop KeyFadr/KeyPad controllers.

Fixed a bug which could decrease Live's GUI performance in sets containing a very large amount of devices.
The Arpeggiator device could play too many notes under certain conditions.
MIDI velocity fades would not work in an Instrument- or MIDI Effect Rack's key zone editor.
Chains assigned to certain velocity ranges in an Instrument Rack's Velocity Zone Editor would not be triggered under certain conditions.
Using the TAB key while renaming a track would not jump to the next track name if certain control surface scripts were enabled in the MIDI / SYNC preferences.
The Launchpad could sometimes show artifacts of the Mixer mode in User Mode II after switching between the two modes.
Status updates that are sent back to a MIDI controller from a control surface script could interfere with status updates from manual MIDI mappings.
Live could crash when moving VST or AU plug-ins to a different track while the plug-in's GUI was open.
Live could crash when closing a Live set that contains AU plug-in devices with Program Change automation.
Live could crash when using 'undo' and 'redo' actions on non-configured plug-in parameters.

Almost perfect..
absolutely, it's the best!

I LOVE Ableton's Live, it's super software for musician! Inspiring, creative, powerful. Amazingly fast tech-support. Simply the best!
dubdelta
Guenter :'Bad: you only get two registration-numbers from ableton (in case of changing your computer that's pretty not much).'
-- If you contact Ableton by email or phone (Very helpful) and mention that you would like to register on other computers you will find them to be very accomodating.

Brilliant software!! Very easy to learn and with 3rd party plug-ins the possiblities and quality are up to the creator.
pixelpunk
If you are a musician that this is simply the most amazing piece of software running on OS X. Fast, incredibly Powerful. Frequent updates, good support.

Very Good: Live 3.0 is truly the best looping sequencer for live-acts and for rapid results. Impressive it's effect section: therewith one can get brilliant results in real time. A most useful feature: You can run Live 3.0 in slave mode with nearly all other sequencers. Bad: you only get two registration-numbers from ableton (in case of changing your computer that's pretty not much). MIDI editing is not the a strong point of Live 3.0.
scseay
Truly the best Looping Sequencer for Mac or Windows. Live 1.0 was great, but 3.0 is amazing. Well worth the money!!!!

Live est un bon logiciel, très intéressant pour les prestations live justement, pour un musicien ne souhaitant pas sortir ses machines de sa chambre... néanmoins, la structure du logiciel reste un peu fermée, le traitement audio n'est pas parfait et son prix (depuis la version 4) me semble surévalué. Il reste tout de même un bon soft, très agréable à utiliser.
