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 v 9.1 20 nov. 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.
- "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.

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.

Fixed a bug where recording wouldn't work properly if the default clip launch mode was set to 'Toggle' mode.
Tracks created by dragging an instrument would sometimes not be automatically armed if Push is connected.
The "Arm Exclusive" preference would not be respected when Push was connected.
The velocity curve setting would reset to the default value when opening a new Live set.
The Push LCD could remain blank and no mode would be selected after holding the 'Browse' mode button.
Fixed a bug where 'Browse' mode would be exited after swapping a Max for Live instrument.
Live v 9.0.2b3 23 mars 2013 MacOS X Intel
Improvements and feature changes:

Added user satisfaction survey. After several hours of usage, Live will ask you to rate the software.
Updated several lessons, info texts and translations.

Bugfixes:

When recording automation into a clip, the automation would not latch during the first iteration, but jump back to the last value.
Clip automation for VST and AU plug-in parameters could get lost after importing a track from the browser into a new Live set.
The file manager would sometimes not replace missing samples even though matching candidates were found.
Enabling hot-swap would trigger preset preview on the source preset (regression from 9.0.2b2).
Feature-limited versions (e.g. Live Intro or Lite) could crash when opening certain context menus.
(64-bit Windows) Exporting video at 48 kHz would not work.
(64-bit Mac) The video window could go black after toggling full-screen mode on and off.
(64-bit Mac) The content in the video window would sometimes not resize correctly when jumping in the playback position.

Changes for Push:

The Push startup dialogue has been removed.
In Session Mode, there is now a higher pad sensitivity threshold, to prevent accidental clip launching.
When a Drum Rack is selected, loop selection and step sequencer pads have a higher threshold to avoid accidental triggering.
When holding the User mode button, you can now set the global pad sensitivity and velocity curve independently.
You can now see the correct values and units of VST plug-in parameters on Push (e.g. "440 Hz" or "75 %"), provided that the VST plug-in transmits these information to Live. Previously you would only see generic values ranging from 0 to 1 in Push's display, even if Live's plug-in parameter list would show the correct value and unit.
Live v 9.0.2b1 11 mars 2013 MacOS X Intel
Improvements and feature changes:

The "Group to Drum Rack" option is available again in the context menu of all instrument devices, provided that the device is not yet grouped into a rack and is not a drum rack device itself.
Removed the gray shade which would cover the Arrangement View's scrub area when the global Back-to-Arrangement button was on, because the controls underneath (e.g. the loop brace, locators, etc.) would look inactive although being active.
Several minor improvements for the Push control surface script.

Bugfixes:

The velocity setting in Simpler and Sampler wasn't correctly restored from 'Slice-To-New-MIDI-Track' presets.
MIDI Mapping for Song Tempo Fine Tune would not work correctly.
When duplicating MIDI notes in a clip, the duplicated notes would sometimes scroll out of view.
Under certain conditions, the white background that indicates the active clip region would not be shown for unwarped audio clips in the Arrangement View.
Under certain conditions, Time Signature Changes would not be recorded correctly into the Arrangement.
When recording clips from Session into Arrangement View, the recorded clip could have an incorrect loop length if the Arrangement's loop was enabled.
MIDI would not be recorded into Session clips when launching a scene after shift-clicking the Session Record Button.
The numbers in the Arrangement View's beat time ruler could disappear when zooming in.
Live could crash when trying to preview a multi-selection of files in the browser via Shift+Enter.
Live could crash during authorization when successively clicking the "Authorize with Ableton.com" button.
Live v 9 5 mars 2013 MacOS X Intel

Live v 8.4 1 mars 2013 MacOS X UB
Improvements and feature changes

Live 8.4 introduces native 64-bit support. The 64-bit version of Live allows the use of more than 4 gigabytes of RAM. This means that Live users can now work with Live Sets (including Sets using third-party plug-ins and ReWire configurations) that are much larger and more memory intensive than in the 32-bit version. The 64-bit version of Live works with PCs running Windows Vista/7/8 (64-bit) and with Intel-Macs running OS X 10.5 and up. For more information, please refer to our knowledge base: (https://www.ableton.com/articles/what-are-limitations-64-bit-version-live/).
Improved the authorization dialog when launching Live as a Trial version.
Improved automatic updates.
The word size of the Live application is now shown in the splash screen.
Live is now showing the email address of the currently authorized user account in the "About" window.

Bugfixes

Live would not respond to time signature changes from a ReWire master.
Fixed a bug which could prevent VST plugins stored in the OS X system library folder to show up in Live's browser.
Fixed a bug in the 32-bit version, which could cause problems when resizing 32-Bit-Cocoa plugins.
Under certain conditions, the playback position in audio clips was incorrect after changing clip start markers in unwarped clips and then re-enabling 'warp' (regression from 8.2.7).
Deactivating a playing clip and then reactivating it would leave the clip in an incorrect state. The clip would look as if it is playing, although it was actually stopped.
Fixed a problem with the Max for Live engine, which would cause Live to freeze when setting an audio buffer size smaller than 21 samples.
Live parameters would no longer update correctly after deleting a Max for Live device which was mapped to that parameter via live.remote~.
Mappings from Max devices to VST plugin parameters could get lost after saving an instrument rack preset and then reloading it.
Fixed a graphical glitch in the Session- / Arrangement View amoeba after toggling views (mixer, crossfader, etc.).
The Session View selection frame of the APC40 or Launchpad could get stuck after deleting scenes or undoing the creation of scenes.
Under certain conditions, Live could hang when decoding MP3 files (Win only).
Fixed a bug which could cause a "memory corruption error".
Fixed a memory leak which could occur when previewing audio files in the Browser, using the "Complex" warp mode.
Live could freeze when successively sending Program Change messages to a VST or AU plug-in (Mac OS X only).
Live could freeze when using the "Insert Time" or "Insert Silence" commands.

Live could crash under certain conditions when deleting a VST plug-in from a drum rack's return chain.
Live could crash under certain conditions when recording time signature changes.
Live could crash under certain conditions when triggering scenes containing time signature changes.
Live could crash under certain conditions when switching through rack chains (e.g. with the "Auto" select function) whilst renaming a device inside the chain.
3 other rare crashes have been fixed.
Live v 8.3.4 4 sept. 2012 MacOS X UB
Improvements and feature changes:

The word size of the Live application is now shown in the splash screen.
Live is now showing the email address of the currently authorized user account in the "About" window.
Improved the authorization dialogue when launching Live as a Trial version.

Bugfixes:

Fixed a bug which could cause a "memory corruption error" when launching Live.
Fixed a memory leak which could occur when using the "Complex" warp mode.
The Session View selection frame of the APC40 or Launchpad could get stuck after deleting scenes or undoing the creation of scenes.
Live device parameters would no longer update correctly after deleting a Max for Live device which was mapped to that parameter via live.remote~.

A new "Upload to SoundCloud" option is available in the Export Audio/Video dialog. When enabled, Live will open an upload client after the file has been rendered to disk, so you can upload the rendered file directly to your SoundCloud account.
Added automatic software updating. When enabled, Live will automatically download and install software updates in the background. Users who update to Live 8.3 from an older Live version will see a dialog box when launching Live 8.3 for the first time, where Automatic Updates can be enabled or disabled. You can always change the settings in Live’s "Licenses/Maintenance" Preferences. More detailed information about Automatic Updates is available in our Knowledge Base.
Changed the naming of the Live application. The application is now called "Ableton Live 8" and does not include a specific revision number. The revision number can still be found in the About screen in the Help menu.
The Windows installer has been updated to a newer version.
The default installation path of the Live application has changed on Windows. More information can be found in our Knowledge Base.

Improvements:

Added support for the Ableton Improvement Program, an automatic usage and data reporting tool. To enable, add this line to your Options.txt file:
-ImprovementProgramParticipation=On

More information about the Ableton Improvement Program can be found in our forum announcement.

(For more information about using the Options.txt file, see http://www.ableton.com/pages/faq/options_text)

Bugfixes:

Receiving MIDI CCs on a MIDI track’s input was causing a high CPU load on OS X Lion.
Fixed a bug in the "Beats" warp mode which could lead to unwanted clicks in rare cases.
Live v 8.2.7 8 déc. 2011 MacOS X UB
Improvements and feature changes:
  • There is a new entry in the Options menu: "Reduced Latency When Monitoring", which toggles latency compensation on and off for tracks which have input monitoring on. When enabled, input-monitored tracks will have the lowest possible latency but may be out of sync with some other tracks in your Set. When disabled, all tracks will be in sync, but input-monitored tracks may have higher latency. Before, the option was only available via the 'StrictDelayCompensation' options.txt, and was ON per default. It now defaults to OFF.

  • When restarting after a crash, Live will now display a warning in the Help View if the crash was caused by an issue with a VST plug-in. Note: this is currently for Mac OS X only.


  • Bugfixes:
  • Authorizing a full version of Live would sometimes activate a feature-limited version (Live Lite or Live Intro).

  • Fixed a bug that prevented setting the start marker of an audio clip before the sample start.

  • On Mac OS X, saving a Live Set could lead to an unresponsive Save dialog box, if the destination folder contained an alias file which points to an unavailable volume.

  • 3 additional crashes were also fixed.
  • Live v 8.2.6 10 sept. 2011 MacOS X UB
    Improvements and feature changes
    Added support for Novation Impulse controllers.

    Bugfixes
    In Live 8.2.5, it was not possible to try Amp or Max for Live.
    Live v 8.2.5 22 août 2011 MacOS X UB
    Live 8.2.5 introduces compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

    Known issue: As of 10.7, Java is no longer installed by default on Mac OS X. In addition, there is a bug that can cause applications that require Java to crash. This affects Max for Live; when a user tries to open a M4L device that requires Java, first Max, and then Live, will crash. We have worked on a fix for this on our side, which is available in this latest build, but the fix is not yet available in Max. Cycling '74 will release a Max update shortly with the fix. For now, users with Max for Live should install Java separately if it is required by their devices, to avoid the crash.

    Improvements and feature changes

    MIDI sync has been improved when Live is a MIDI clock slave
    Imported tracks (from the Live Browser) now route to Master if their original output routing can't be resolved, instead of "Sends Only."
    The default for the Takeover mode in the MIDI Preferences is now Value Scaling instead of Pick-up.
    We now prevent choosing the root of the system hard drive (or the Windows system folders on Windows machines) as the third-party plugin location. Doing that would crash Live on startup, because these folders contain files that are interpreted as third-party plugins.

    Bugfixes

    Live would freeze and crash on OS X Lion when sending MIDI data to any MIDI port.
    Under certain conditions, quantizing transient markers could lead to overlapping warp markers, which would cause various problems when editing the warp marker or its segment BPM value.
    Under certain conditions, the "Transient"-based Beats warp mode would play double attacks. With this bug fixed, it is possible that some clips sound different.
    Excluding a plug-in from the scan process didn't work if Live crashed because of the first scanned plug-in, after enabling the VST plug-in source via Live's Preferences (Mac only).
    Rendering a Live Set containing an EQ3 at sample rates below 44.1 KHz would result in an audio file containing pure silence.
    Fixed a crash when loading a Live 7 Set with invalid clip color information in Live 8.
    Detail view appeared empty after Hot-Swapping an unfolded Rack, because devices were scrolled out of view.
    Infinitely long clips would be created if rewinding the global transport while making a new recording.
    Track names could be incorrectly displayed when unfolding a Live set in the Live Browser. This only happened for "automatic names" that tracks get from the Instrument they contain. For Live Sets saved in earlier versions, names of tracks containing Racks, Max for Live devices or third-party plugins may still look wrong. Re-saving the Sets will fix the problem.
    Some Operator presets could sound different when loading them, and then creating or moving a track.
    The Frontier Design Tranzport was not getting updated when switching tracks.
    The green zoom button was sometimes disabled when using Live with Mac OS X.
    Resuming a clip in Session view while the track is armed but OVR is OFF could result in the clip not playing its notes.
    Toggling OVR ON and OFF doesn't create an UNDO step anymore
    Certain Library content wasn't usable for Live Intro users since version 8.2.
    Enabling a clip loop via the loop switch or the Set Loop Length button would sometimes stop the clip.
    Fixed a crash which could occur when hot-swapping a certain Drum Rack pad.
    Eleven additional crashes were also fixed.
    Live v 8.2.5b1 14 août 2011 MacOS X UB
    Note on Lion: This Beta introduces compatibility with OS X 10.7 Lion.

    There is one known issue with OS X 10.7 Lion. As of 10.7, Java is no longer installed by default on Mac OS X. In addition, there is a bug that can cause applications that require Java to crash. This affects Max for Live; when a user tries to open a M4L device that requires Java, first Max, and then Live, will crash. We have worked on a fix for this on our side, which is available in this latest build, but the fix is not yet available in Max. Cycling '74 will release a Max update shortly with the fix. For now, users with Max for Live should install Java separately if it is required by their devices, to avoid the crash.

    Max for Live improvements and feature changes

    (Note: Most of these changes require an update to the latest version of Max, which is available from http://cycling74.com/downloads/)

    * Devices inside Racks can now be accessed via the Max for Live API
    * Return tracks can now be observed via the Max for Live API

    Live devices and parameters can now be much more easily mapped to controls in Max devices. Devices can safely be moved within a Live Set without breaking any existing mappings. Also, devices and Sets can be saved and loaded without breaking existing mappings. The following changes make this possible:

    * There is now a simple way to observe the selected parameter via the Max for Live API, using "live.path live_set view selected_parameter." This can be used, for example, to build a custom "map mode" to quickly map parameters in your Live Set to controls in a Max device.
    * Live objects like tracks, clips or parameters retain their identity (id nn) during operations like move, save/restore, cut/paste, delete/undo, the identity is global and can be communicated via Max's Send and Receive objects.
    * live.object, live.observer and live.remote~ are now able to remember their target objects when Live sets or presets are saved and restored or when objects are moved within the Live set.
    * Ableton protected samples can now be used in Max for Live device, via the Live.drop object
    * fixed a bug where clip slots would lose their id on moving a clip
    * fixed navigating and observing control surfaces via the LiveAPI
    * Repeatedly calling "goto control_surfaces" on a live.path object was producing a different id each time
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when deleting a Rack containing a Max for Live device, where a Remote~ was controlling one of the Macro knobs, and then Undoing the delete action
    * Navigating the Live Object Model is about two times faster
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when moving tracks that contained automated Max for Live devices
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when replacing one Max for Live device with another if certain modulations existed
    * If a native Ableton device has parameters that are mapped to a Max for Live device, the mappings will be preserved after hot-swapping the Ableton device
    * The Track/Chain Activator and Song Tempo are now accessible via the "selected_parameter" property and their path can be queried
    * "live_app" and "live_app view" can now be persistent in the Max for Live API
    * Mapping some mixer component on the APC40 (for example) through the Max for Live API wouldn't work without pressing the Pan or Send button on the APC40, which reset the component. This has been fixed.
    * "goto live_set tracks 2 devices" in a set with one track produced id -1, which is wrong. Now it produces id 0.
    * If the LOM id of the observer is persistent, the property of an observed LOM object is persistent, even if it is dynamically changed using a message.
    * Max for Live devices that control the Application objects (e.g. live_app (live_app view)) or which get information about the Live version and document name (e.g. get_major_version (focus_view)) will work when loading the Set, without requiring user interaction.

    Bugfixes

    * Fixed a problem with nested Macro mappings when the range of a mapped ON/OFF switch, or of a selector switch (such as a filter type switch), is not at default values. In such a case, the right value would be displayed, but the wrong value would be used internally.

    Note: with this fix, you will now hear what you see, although this may mean that previously saved Sets that contained the bug may sound different.

    * Deleting time in the Arrangment View could delete crossfades in certain cases.
    * When using an APC40 and Scratch Live, Scratch Live would sync to the APC but would not initially show the return tracks .
    * If the VST plug-ins folder contained shorcuts/aliases to files in another location on disk, the folder would be rescanned each time Live starts. This has been fixed.
    * When launching a scene with via Key/MIDI mapping or a control surface such as the APC40 while "Select on Launch" is enabled, the Master track became selected. This would result in the selected device switching to the device on the Master track. Now, launching a scene via remote control behaves the same as when launching with the mouse; the device selection doesn't change.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when clicking the status bar, while it displays "Media files are missing", and just after having adjusted a Macro knob.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when adding an audio clip, scrubbing in the clip detail view, and pressing Undo while the mouse was still down for scrubbing.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when switching between certain audio interfaces on a Mac
    * updated Complex Pro libraries to prevent a potential crash
    * fixed Transport button behavior for the Akai MPK61 and 88
    * fixed a crash that could occur when opening very large Live Sets
    * fixed a crash that could occur when a clip referencing a sample was in the clipboard and when pressing the Edit button (in the File Manager or Clip View) to set the sample offline and then on again
    * Holding a note while recording a MIDI clip and stopping the transport while the note is held would result in a silent note during play back
    * If a clip was in Gate Mode, releasing the trigger key within the launch quantization period would still launch the clip
    * Fixed a bug that caused a clip in Gate launch mode to continue playing after clicking another clip for a very short time
    * Fixed a bug in how MIDI effect Racks handle latency. Now chains compensate properly against each other
    Live v 8.2.1 13 oct. 2010 MacOS X UB
    Improvements and feature changes
    * Improvements to Amp presets including better folder organization, additional guitar and bass amp presets and various other changes.
    * Improvements to sound quality in Drum Machines.
    * Performance optimizations on many Rack presets.
    * Many delay devices now use the "Fade" Delay Transition mode, to avoid clicks.
    * All Latin Percussion sounds are additionally available as chromatically tuned Simpler presets.

    Bugfixes
    * Amp is now available in the trial version of Ableton Suite.
    * Removed duplicate Amp presets.
    * Fixed Hot-Swap behavior for a number of Session Drums and Drum Machines presets.
    * Fixed a bug that prevented the use of soundcards with only one input on OS X.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when using a ReWire slave such as Reason and manipulating devices in the slave that were referred to by clips in Live.
    Live v 8.2 22 sept. 2010 MacOS X UB
    Improvements and feature changes
    * Support for The Bridge, our collaborative project with Serato. The Bridge is free for users of Live/Suite 8.
    * Amp, an audio effect that models guitar amps and cabinets. Amp is free for Suite users.
    * Some changes were made to the Help Pages regarding how to report a crash and how to contact support. When restarting Live after a crash, Live produces a file named "Ableton Crash Report... .alp", whereas choosing "Get Support.." in Live's Help menu produces a file named "Ableton Status Report... .alp".

    Bugfixes
    * Improved compatibility for Antares Harmony VST. Now the plugin works in Stereo mode only when inserted in a track, while previously its 5 channels were active in such a case.
    * Fixed a bug that could prevent Live from deleting temporary Projects.
    * Fixed a rare crash that could occur with a combination of control surface selected in the Preferences, Ableton devices moved from track to track, and then tracks moved to different positions.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur after undoing the move of a track containing a clip into a group track, which occurred with a specific state of the Live Set.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when entering mapping mode while a Max for Live device was in the clipboard.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred after triggering a 'stop slot' and recording outside the punch region.
    * Fixed a crash happening after pressing Del (return to default) after editing the volume of at least two Rack chains at once.
    * Fixed a crash that would happen while Live is slaved, and opening a Live Set containing a MIDI clip ready to Overdub, which would try to be triggered when loading the Set, before the undo history is ready.
    * Fixed a bug that would create corrupt documents if the user uses 'Save a Copy' but overwrites the original Live Set, then tries to restore that Set after a crash. Now, overwriting the current Set using 'Save a Copy' does the same thing as 'Save'.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred while remotely changing scenes while editing some clip property.
    * Core Audio driver is now listening for external sample rate changes, on the Mac.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur after undoing the pasting of an Instrument into an empty MIDI track. The crash could happen in other ways too, but that's the easiest to describe.
    * In some cases Live could crash when loading a document that overcomes limitation (like a Live set containing Operator on a computer where Operator is not unlocked).
    * Fixed a crash caused by a rounding error, causing some memory corruption
    * It was previously not possible to map a track group slot when the group track was unfolded, because the selection spreads over the whole local scene. Now the selection changes upon entering map mode, or when existing it, allowing to map the slot, and restoring the correct selection when done.
    * Fixed a crash that happened when moving a Max for Live device containing a "getpath" object to another track.
    * Live could hang changing clip parameters while jumping in the song while recording.
    * On some systems, Live is able to create Live packs that exceed 2 Gb, but could not read them. This is fixed by upgrading our packing Libraries.
    * Fixed a crash that happened in rare cases (revealed by using The Bridge, but it is not directly related to it) when trying to insert a first warp marker in an audio recording.
    * Fixed a crash happening when some MIDI targets where not available anymore but called. For example, it happened when having 2 MIDI clip selected in Session view, in a track containing at least a device, and then flattening the track.
    * Fixed a crash happening when rebuilding the set from the Undo history, related to 3rd devices.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when trying to open a certain kind of corrupt document
    * Disabled editing the value of a VST plug-in parameter via the computer keyboard (only in the Ableton view of the plugin, not in the plugin's own interface). The VST specification doesn't allow Live to set the value correctly.
    * Fixed a crash that happened on a Mac whenever the number of channels for the opened audio interface would change. For example, changing the sample rate for some devices would implicitly change the number of inputs and/or outputs.
    * Fixed the drawing of notes while recording a MIDI clip in the Arrangement view.
    * Fixed many issues that caused memory corruption when using Complex Pro. A bug that made 192Khz files sound distorted when stretched with Complex Pro has also been corrected.
    * Fixed the display of looped MIDI clips in the Arrangement, which was a regression due to a fix that made MIDI notes draw correctly while recording (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=149012)
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when uninstalling a Live Pack and making the Library unavailable, by unplugging the external drive it is on, for example.
    * Fixed crashes that could occur when using sample files that have a sample rate greater than 192KHz and set to Complex or Complex Pro.
    * Fixed a crash that happened when using "dead keys" in message boxes, like pressing "z" when the "Do you want to save this Live set" dialog box was displayed.
    * Fixed a crash which was triggered by moving a fader or knob on a MIDI controller while in MIDI learn mode, and quitting Live at the same time.
    * Fixed a crash happening when having an incoming MIDI mapped message that would reach Live while loading a document. This had to do with the Undo history not yet being created, while the incoming message needed to access it.
    * Fixed Japanese text input. It was not possible to rename tracks with Japanese characters, for example.
    Live v 8.1.5 11 août 2010 MacOS X UB
    Bugfixes

  • Unwarped clips could be placed incorrectly after opening a Live Set, if the Set was saved after changing the global tempo without first confirming the change with the Enter key or by clicking somewhere else in the interface.


  • Fixed a visual bug that made MIDI clips entirely black while recording, but before the first note was input.


  • Fixed a crash when observing 'has_stop_button' of a Group Track Slot via M4L GroupTrackSlot.


  • Fixed a crash that occurred when loading a Group preset containing an AU plug-in that is missing.


  • Fixed a crash that could occur with clips warped in Beats mode, Transients and back-and-forth envelope settings, when the loop extends outside the sample data.


  • Fixed a bug where typing a tempo in the BPM field of a warped clip would give a slightly wrong number (i.e. you type "100" and "100.0001" gets entered," which led to some neutrality problems.


  • 3rd party plug-in windows now always get the focus when clicked.


  • Blocked certain keys when a 3rd party plug-in window has the focus, such as the "Delete" and "Backspace" keys, which fixes the bug that would delete a plug-in or a track when pressing Delete/Backspace while editing a 3rd party plug-in in its own GUI.


  • Fixed a bug that would make a group slot lose its MIDI/Key mapping when moving the corresponding scene (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=140895)


  • Fixed a bug that prevented adding or removing the stop button of a group track slot while the group track is folded (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=140895)


  • Fixed a visual bug where a green overlay could be left orphaned in a 3rd party Ableton GUI


  • The Min or Max parameters in the mapping Browser, for mapped 3rd party plug-in parameters, could lose the focus as soon as they were touched. This made it impossible to edit them via the computer keyboard arrow keys.


  • The Ableton GUI of an AU plug-in would be empty after loading a native AU preset, for plug-ins having fewer than 32 parameters. In such a case, the GUI should be automatically populated.


  • Fixed a bug that prevented removing a parameter from the Ableton GUI of a 3rd party plu-gin while Configure mode is ON, if it was Macro-mapped.


  • Dragging a first warped clip in a non-empty Arrangement would sometimes set the tempo of the Live Set. The correct condition is that this should only happen if the Arrangement contains no clip at all.


  • It was not possible to click inside a multi-selection while in Key or MIDI map mode in order to change the selection and select only one of its constituents. This is now fixed.


  • Fixed another key handling problem for some plug-ins using a Cocoa view.


  • Fixed a bug where MIDI notes could hang if an AU plug-in was deactivated and then reactivated.


  • If the last note within the Loop brace, in a MIDI clip, overlapped the Loop end, selecting the loop brace and choosing "Duplicate" would duplicate the looped material's offset. Now duplication correctly duplicates the Loop length, at the correct position.


  • When an External Instrument was routed to a multi-timbral MIDI instrument, and that instrument or the containing track was moved, the routing would be reset to the default output. Now routings are correctly remembered.


  • Improved audio streaming performance for specific Live Sets with many audio files.


  • Corrected a bug that would make computer keyboard selection behave incorrectly after selecting a clip via remote control.


  • Fixed crash when mouse was pressed in the detail view before sample analysis finished.


  • Fixed crash when dragging MIDI from XLN's Addictive Drums.


  • Fixed a crash that occurred when zooming into a large waveform with an extreme zoom factor.


  • Fixed a bug that made Collision silent after deleting it and undoing.


  • Various other stability improvements
  • Live v 8.1.4 6 juil. 2010 MacOS X UB
    Improvements

  • Combination Mode is now active when multiple Akai APC40/20s are in use. This means that the topmost controller selected in your preferences will control tracks 1-8, the second controller selected will control tracks 9-16, and so on. When an APC40 and an APC20 are connected at the same time, the APC20's buttons will default to Track Selection, and its faders will default to volume.

  • In very rare cases, Live would crash when running extremely loud signals through Overdrive.

  • Custom Min/Max values for MIDI- or key-mapped parameters on VST plug-ins would be lost after saving and reloading the Set.

  • When using clip envelopes to modulate the parameters of third-party plug-ins, the modulation range would be broken after saving and reloading the Set. (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=141378&start=0)

  • Some Sets which were saved in earlier versions of Live could not be opened in recent versions.

  • In certain cases, clips would not blink properly when using Follow Actions with launch quantization set to None. (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=140427)

  • Dragging a sample onto the waveform of an existing clip in Session view would reset the Launch settings of the clip.

  • In certain cases, launching a warped audio clip would play the unwarped version simultaneously.

  • In some cases, Gate launch mode for Session view clips would not behave correctly.

  • In certain cases, conflicting fade and volume envelopes would inadvertently mute audio clips in the Arrangement.

  • Occasionally, loud clicks could occur when using crossfades in the Arrangement.

  • When recording into the Arrangement, clicks could occur when "Create Fades on Clip Edges" was enabled.

  • In certain cases, clicks could occur when turning on the filter in Sampler/Simpler while holding a note.

  • The faders on the Mackie Control would not behave correctly when volume is automated in Live.

  • In certain cases, when recording a clip in Session View, the APC40 would not flash red to reflect the state of the clip. (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=133154)

  • Fixed a bug that would cause automation to always be overridden when using Ultra Analog. This would result in the Back to Arrangement button becoming active.

  • In some cases, the dialog box that should show trial options when starting Live without an authorization would be empty instead.

  • On OS X, missing media files without a file extension could not be replaced.

  • In certain cases, a dialog about temporary files would be shown even though there were no temporary files.

  • Live now ignores invalid MIDI data (for example, MIDI CC values that don't exist.)

  • Fixed a rare crash that occurred when opening documents while the mouse moves in certain areas.

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when dragging a Live Set which contains a sample that has been shortened outside of Live to the Session view, while this sample is already in use in the Arrangement view.

  • Fixed an issue in which configuring a third-party plug-in by clicking one of its parameters in the plug-in GUI while Configure is ON would not show the right value for the parameter in the Live GUI of the plug-in.

  • The APC 40 wouldn't always update its state properly when loading a new Live set.

  • Live could hang when undoing the deletion of a parameter mapping in the Live GUI of a 3rd party plug-in.

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when firing a scene while moving a Group Track.

  • We now ignore "non automatable" parameters for AU plug-ins, in terms of assigning them in the Live plug-in GUI.

  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when loading a new song or quitting Live while the mouse hovered a Max for Live device.

    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.

    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 20 nov. 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.

    Improvements and feature changes:

    Added a new skin: "Disco".
    Added a new option to the "Record/Warp/Launch" preferences pane: "Start Transport with Record". If activated, the transport will start immediately when clicking on the Session- or Arrangement-Record buttons.

You can hold down the Shift modifier key when clicking on the record buttons to invert the behavior temporarily.
    When recording automation on top of an existing automation envelope, and quickly clicking on different positions in parameters like sliders, X/Y pads, etc., Live now records a latching automation envelope instead of jumping back to the previous value.
    The Compressor device does not clip input signals at +20 dB anymore.
    Added control surface support for Novation Launchkey series.
    Added control surface support for M-Audio Axiom Air Mini 32.

    (64-bit Windows) Exporting video at 48 kHz would not work.
    (64-bit Mac) The video window could go black after toggling full-screen mode on and off.
    (64-bit Mac) The content in the video window would sometimes not resize correctly when jumping in the playback position.

    Changes for Push:

    The Push startup dialogue has been removed.
    In Session Mode, there is now a higher pad sensitivity threshold, to prevent accidental clip launching.
    When a Drum Rack is selected, loop selection and step sequencer pads have a higher threshold to avoid accidental triggering.
    When holding the User mode button, you can now set the global pad sensitivity and velocity curve independently.
    You can now see the correct values and units of VST plug-in parameters on Push (e.g. "440 Hz" or "75 %"), provided that the VST plug-in transmits these information to Live. Previously you would only see generic values ranging from 0 to 1 in Push's display, even if Live's plug-in parameter list would show the correct value and unit.
    Live v 9.0.2b1 11 mars 2013 Windows
    Improvements and feature changes:

    The "Group to Drum Rack" option is available again in the context menu of all instrument devices, provided that the device is not yet grouped into a rack and is not a drum rack device itself.
    Removed the gray shade which would cover the Arrangement View's scrub area when the global Back-to-Arrangement button was on, because the controls underneath (e.g. the loop brace, locators, etc.) would look inactive although being active.

    Live v 8.4 1 mars 2013 Windows
    Improvements and feature changes

    Live 8.4 introduces native 64-bit support. The 64-bit version of Live allows the use of more than 4 gigabytes of RAM. This means that Live users can now work with Live Sets (including Sets using third-party plug-ins and ReWire configurations) that are much larger and more memory intensive than in the 32-bit version. The 64-bit version of Live works with PCs running Windows Vista/7/8 (64-bit) and with Intel-Macs running OS X 10.5 and up. For more information, please refer to our knowledge base: (https://www.ableton.com/articles/what-are-limitations-64-bit-version-live/).

    A new "Upload to SoundCloud" option is available in the Export Audio/Video dialog. When enabled, Live will open an upload client after the file has been rendered to disk, so you can upload the rendered file directly to your SoundCloud account.
    Added automatic software updating. When enabled, Live will automatically download and install software updates in the background. Users who update to Live 8.3 from an older Live version will see a dialog box when launching Live 8.3 for the first time, where Automatic Updates can be enabled or disabled. You can always change the settings in Live’s "Licenses/Maintenance" Preferences. More detailed information about Automatic Updates is available in our Knowledge Base.
    Changed the naming of the Live application. The application is now called "Ableton Live 8" and does not include a specific revision number. The revision number can still be found in the About screen in the Help menu.
    The Windows installer has been updated to a newer version.
    The default installation path of the Live application has changed on Windows. More information can be found in our Knowledge Base.

    (For more information about using the Options.txt file, see http://www.ableton.com/pages/faq/options_text)

    Bugfixes:

    Receiving MIDI CCs on a MIDI track’s input was causing a high CPU load on OS X Lion.
    Fixed a bug in the "Beats" warp mode which could lead to unwanted clicks in rare cases.
    Live v 8.2.7 8 déc. 2011 Windows
    Improvements and feature changes:
  • There is a new entry in the Options menu: "Reduced Latency When Monitoring", which toggles latency compensation on and off for tracks which have input monitoring on. When enabled, input-monitored tracks will have the lowest possible latency but may be out of sync with some other tracks in your Set. When disabled, all tracks will be in sync, but input-monitored tracks may have higher latency. Before, the option was only available via the 'StrictDelayCompensation' options.txt, and was ON per default. It now defaults to OFF.

  • When restarting after a crash, Live will now display a warning in the Help View if the crash was caused by an issue with a VST plug-in. Note: this is currently for Mac OS X only.


  • Bugfixes:
  • Authorizing a full version of Live would sometimes activate a feature-limited version (Live Lite or Live Intro).

  • Fixed a bug that prevented setting the start marker of an audio clip before the sample start.

  • On Mac OS X, saving a Live Set could lead to an unresponsive Save dialog box, if the destination folder contained an alias file which points to an unavailable volume.

  • Fixed a crash which occurred when importing a Drum Rack with a routing to a return track.

  • 3 additional crashes were also fixed.
  • Live v 8.2.6 10 sept. 2011 Windows
    Improvements and feature changes
    Added support for Novation Impulse controllers.

    Bugfixes
    In Live 8.2.5, it was not possible to try Amp or Max for Live.
    Live v 8.2.5 22 août 2011 Windows
    Live 8.2.5 introduces compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

    Known issue: As of 10.7, Java is no longer installed by default on Mac OS X. In addition, there is a bug that can cause applications that require Java to crash. This affects Max for Live; when a user tries to open a M4L device that requires Java, first Max, and then Live, will crash. We have worked on a fix for this on our side, which is available in this latest build, but the fix is not yet available in Max. Cycling '74 will release a Max update shortly with the fix. For now, users with Max for Live should install Java separately if it is required by their devices, to avoid the crash.

    Improvements and feature changes

    MIDI sync has been improved when Live is a MIDI clock slave
    Imported tracks (from the Live Browser) now route to Master if their original output routing can't be resolved, instead of "Sends Only."
    The default for the Takeover mode in the MIDI Preferences is now Value Scaling instead of Pick-up.
    We now prevent choosing the root of the system hard drive (or the Windows system folders on Windows machines) as the third-party plugin location. Doing that would crash Live on startup, because these folders contain files that are interpreted as third-party plugins.

    Bugfixes

    Live would freeze and crash on OS X Lion when sending MIDI data to any MIDI port.
    Under certain conditions, quantizing transient markers could lead to overlapping warp markers, which would cause various problems when editing the warp marker or its segment BPM value.
    Under certain conditions, the "Transient"-based Beats warp mode would play double attacks. With this bug fixed, it is possible that some clips sound different.
    Excluding a plug-in from the scan process didn't work if Live crashed because of the first scanned plug-in, after enabling the VST plug-in source via Live's Preferences (Mac only).
    Rendering a Live Set containing an EQ3 at sample rates below 44.1 KHz would result in an audio file containing pure silence.
    Fixed a crash when loading a Live 7 Set with invalid clip color information in Live 8.
    Detail view appeared empty after Hot-Swapping an unfolded Rack, because devices were scrolled out of view.
    Infinitely long clips would be created if rewinding the global transport while making a new recording.
    Track names could be incorrectly displayed when unfolding a Live set in the Live Browser. This only happened for "automatic names" that tracks get from the Instrument they contain. For Live Sets saved in earlier versions, names of tracks containing Racks, Max for Live devices or third-party plugins may still look wrong. Re-saving the Sets will fix the problem.
    Some Operator presets could sound different when loading them, and then creating or moving a track.
    The Frontier Design Tranzport was not getting updated when switching tracks.
    The green zoom button was sometimes disabled when using Live with Mac OS X.
    Resuming a clip in Session view while the track is armed but OVR is OFF could result in the clip not playing its notes.
    Toggling OVR ON and OFF doesn't create an UNDO step anymore
    Certain Library content wasn't usable for Live Intro users since version 8.2.
    Enabling a clip loop via the loop switch or the Set Loop Length button would sometimes stop the clip.
    Fixed a crash which could occur when hot-swapping a certain Drum Rack pad.
    Eleven additional crashes were also fixed.
    Live v 8.2.5b1 14 août 2011 Windows
    Note on Lion: This Beta introduces compatibility with OS X 10.7 Lion.

    There is one known issue with OS X 10.7 Lion. As of 10.7, Java is no longer installed by default on Mac OS X. In addition, there is a bug that can cause applications that require Java to crash. This affects Max for Live; when a user tries to open a M4L device that requires Java, first Max, and then Live, will crash. We have worked on a fix for this on our side, which is available in this latest build, but the fix is not yet available in Max. Cycling '74 will release a Max update shortly with the fix. For now, users with Max for Live should install Java separately if it is required by their devices, to avoid the crash.

    Max for Live improvements and feature changes

    (Note: Most of these changes require an update to the latest version of Max, which is available from http://cycling74.com/downloads/)

    * Devices inside Racks can now be accessed via the Max for Live API
    * Return tracks can now be observed via the Max for Live API

    Live devices and parameters can now be much more easily mapped to controls in Max devices. Devices can safely be moved within a Live Set without breaking any existing mappings. Also, devices and Sets can be saved and loaded without breaking existing mappings. The following changes make this possible:

    * There is now a simple way to observe the selected parameter via the Max for Live API, using "live.path live_set view selected_parameter." This can be used, for example, to build a custom "map mode" to quickly map parameters in your Live Set to controls in a Max device.
    * Live objects like tracks, clips or parameters retain their identity (id nn) during operations like move, save/restore, cut/paste, delete/undo, the identity is global and can be communicated via Max's Send and Receive objects.
    * live.object, live.observer and live.remote~ are now able to remember their target objects when Live sets or presets are saved and restored or when objects are moved within the Live set.
    * Ableton protected samples can now be used in Max for Live device, via the Live.drop object
    * fixed a bug where clip slots would lose their id on moving a clip
    * fixed navigating and observing control surfaces via the LiveAPI
    * Repeatedly calling "goto control_surfaces" on a live.path object was producing a different id each time
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when deleting a Rack containing a Max for Live device, where a Remote~ was controlling one of the Macro knobs, and then Undoing the delete action
    * Navigating the Live Object Model is about two times faster
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when moving tracks that contained automated Max for Live devices
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when replacing one Max for Live device with another if certain modulations existed
    * If a native Ableton device has parameters that are mapped to a Max for Live device, the mappings will be preserved after hot-swapping the Ableton device
    * The Track/Chain Activator and Song Tempo are now accessible via the "selected_parameter" property and their path can be queried
    * "live_app" and "live_app view" can now be persistent in the Max for Live API
    * Mapping some mixer component on the APC40 (for example) through the Max for Live API wouldn't work without pressing the Pan or Send button on the APC40, which reset the component. This has been fixed.
    * "goto live_set tracks 2 devices" in a set with one track produced id -1, which is wrong. Now it produces id 0.
    * If the LOM id of the observer is persistent, the property of an observed LOM object is persistent, even if it is dynamically changed using a message.
    * Max for Live devices that control the Application objects (e.g. live_app (live_app view)) or which get information about the Live version and document name (e.g. get_major_version (focus_view)) will work when loading the Set, without requiring user interaction.

    Bugfixes

    * Fixed a problem with nested Macro mappings when the range of a mapped ON/OFF switch, or of a selector switch (such as a filter type switch), is not at default values. In such a case, the right value would be displayed, but the wrong value would be used internally.

    Note: with this fix, you will now hear what you see, although this may mean that previously saved Sets that contained the bug may sound different.

    * Deleting time in the Arrangment View could delete crossfades in certain cases.
    * When using an APC40 and Scratch Live, Scratch Live would sync to the APC but would not initially show the return tracks .
    * If the VST plug-ins folder contained shorcuts/aliases to files in another location on disk, the folder would be rescanned each time Live starts. This has been fixed.
    * When launching a scene with via Key/MIDI mapping or a control surface such as the APC40 while "Select on Launch" is enabled, the Master track became selected. This would result in the selected device switching to the device on the Master track. Now, launching a scene via remote control behaves the same as when launching with the mouse; the device selection doesn't change.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when clicking the status bar, while it displays "Media files are missing", and just after having adjusted a Macro knob.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when adding an audio clip, scrubbing in the clip detail view, and pressing Undo while the mouse was still down for scrubbing.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when switching between certain audio interfaces on a Mac
    * updated Complex Pro libraries to prevent a potential crash
    * fixed Transport button behavior for the Akai MPK61 and 88
    * fixed a crash that could occur when opening very large Live Sets
    * fixed a crash that could occur when a clip referencing a sample was in the clipboard and when pressing the Edit button (in the File Manager or Clip View) to set the sample offline and then on again
    * Holding a note while recording a MIDI clip and stopping the transport while the note is held would result in a silent note during play back
    * If a clip was in Gate Mode, releasing the trigger key within the launch quantization period would still launch the clip
    * Fixed a bug that caused a clip in Gate launch mode to continue playing after clicking another clip for a very short time
    * Fixed a bug in how MIDI effect Racks handle latency. Now chains compensate properly against each other
    Live v 8.2.1 13 oct. 2010 Windows
    Improvements and feature changes
    * Improvements to Amp presets including better folder organization, additional guitar and bass amp presets and various other changes.
    * Improvements to sound quality in Drum Machines.
    * Performance optimizations on many Rack presets.
    * Many delay devices now use the "Fade" Delay Transition mode, to avoid clicks.
    * All Latin Percussion sounds are additionally available as chromatically tuned Simpler presets.

    Bugfixes
    * Amp is now available in the trial version of Ableton Suite.
    * Removed duplicate Amp presets.
    * Fixed Hot-Swap behavior for a number of Session Drums and Drum Machines presets.
    * Fixed a bug that prevented the use of soundcards with only one input on OS X.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when using a ReWire slave such as Reason and manipulating devices in the slave that were referred to by clips in Live.
    Live v 8.2 22 sept. 2010 Windows
    Improvements and feature changes
    * Support for The Bridge, our collaborative project with Serato. The Bridge is free for users of Live/Suite 8.
    * Amp, an audio effect that models guitar amps and cabinets. Amp is free for Suite users.
    * Some changes were made to the Help Pages regarding how to report a crash and how to contact support. When restarting Live after a crash, Live produces a file named "Ableton Crash Report... .alp", whereas choosing "Get Support.." in Live's Help menu produces a file named "Ableton Status Report... .alp".

    Bugfixes
    * Improved compatibility for Antares Harmony VST. Now the plugin works in Stereo mode only when inserted in a track, while previously its 5 channels were active in such a case.
    * Fixed a bug that could prevent Live from deleting temporary Projects.
    * Fixed a rare crash that could occur with a combination of control surface selected in the Preferences, Ableton devices moved from track to track, and then tracks moved to different positions.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur after undoing the move of a track containing a clip into a group track, which occurred with a specific state of the Live Set.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when entering mapping mode while a Max for Live device was in the clipboard.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred after triggering a 'stop slot' and recording outside the punch region.
    * Fixed a crash happening after pressing Del (return to default) after editing the volume of at least two Rack chains at once.
    * Fixed a crash that would happen while Live is slaved, and opening a Live Set containing a MIDI clip ready to Overdub, which would try to be triggered when loading the Set, before the undo history is ready.
    * Fixed a bug that would create corrupt documents if the user uses 'Save a Copy' but overwrites the original Live Set, then tries to restore that Set after a crash. Now, overwriting the current Set using 'Save a Copy' does the same thing as 'Save'.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred while remotely changing scenes while editing some clip property.
    * Core Audio driver is now listening for external sample rate changes, on the Mac.
    * Fixed a crash that could occur after undoing the pasting of an Instrument into an empty MIDI track. The crash could happen in other ways too, but that's the easiest to describe.
    * In some cases Live could crash when loading a document that overcomes limitation (like a Live set containing Operator on a computer where Operator is not unlocked).
    * Fixed a crash caused by a rounding error, causing some memory corruption
    * It was previously not possible to map a track group slot when the group track was unfolded, because the selection spreads over the whole local scene. Now the selection changes upon entering map mode, or when existing it, allowing to map the slot, and restoring the correct selection when done.
    * Fixed a crash that happened when moving a Max for Live device containing a "getpath" object to another track.
    * Live could hang changing clip parameters while jumping in the song while recording.
    * On some systems, Live is able to create Live packs that exceed 2 Gb, but could not read them. This is fixed by upgrading our packing Libraries.
    * Fixed a crash that happened in rare cases (revealed by using The Bridge, but it is not directly related to it) when trying to insert a first warp marker in an audio recording.
    * Fixed a crash happening when some MIDI targets where not available anymore but called. For example, it happened when having 2 MIDI clip selected in Session view, in a track containing at least a device, and then flattening the track.
    * Fixed a crash happening when rebuilding the set from the Undo history, related to 3rd devices.
    * Fixed a crash that occurred when trying to open a certain kind of corrupt document
    * Disabled editing the value of a VST plug-in parameter via the computer keyboard (only in the Ableton view of the plugin, not in the plugin's own interface). The VST specification doesn't allow Live to set the value correctly.
    * Fixed a crash that happened on a Mac whenever the number of channels for the opened audio interface would change. For example, changing the sample rate for some devices would implicitly change the number of inputs and/or outputs.
    * Fixed the drawing of notes while recording a MIDI clip in the Arrangement view.
    * Fixed many issues that caused memory corruption when using Complex Pro. A bug that made 192Khz files sound distorted when stretched with Complex Pro has also been corrected.
    * Fixed the display of looped MIDI clips in the Arrangement, which was a regression due to a fix that made MIDI notes draw correctly while recording (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=149012)
    * Fixed a crash that could occur when uninstalling a Live Pack and making the Library unavailable, by unplugging the external drive it is on, for example.
    * Fixed crashes that could occur when using sample files that have a sample rate greater than 192KHz and set to Complex or Complex Pro.
    * Fixed a crash that happened when using "dead keys" in message boxes, like pressing "z" when the "Do you want to save this Live set" dialog box was displayed.
    * Fixed a crash which was triggered by moving a fader or knob on a MIDI controller while in MIDI learn mode, and quitting Live at the same time.
    * Fixed a crash happening when having an incoming MIDI mapped message that would reach Live while loading a document. This had to do with the Undo history not yet being created, while the incoming message needed to access it.
    * Fixed Japanese text input. It was not possible to rename tracks with Japanese characters, for example.
    Live v 8.1.5 11 août 2010 Windows
    Bugfixes

  • Unwarped clips could be placed incorrectly after opening a Live Set, if the Set was saved after changing the global tempo without first confirming the change with the Enter key or by clicking somewhere else in the interface.


  • Fixed a visual bug that made MIDI clips entirely black while recording, but before the first note was input.


  • Fixed a crash when observing 'has_stop_button' of a Group Track Slot via M4L GroupTrackSlot.


  • Fixed a crash that occurred when loading a Group preset containing an AU plug-in that is missing.


  • Fixed a crash that could occur with clips warped in Beats mode, Transients and back-and-forth envelope settings, when the loop extends outside the sample data.


  • Fixed a bug where typing a tempo in the BPM field of a warped clip would give a slightly wrong number (i.e. you type "100" and "100.0001" gets entered," which led to some neutrality problems.


  • 3rd party plug-in windows now always get the focus when clicked.


  • Blocked certain keys when a 3rd party plug-in window has the focus, such as the "Delete" and "Backspace" keys, which fixes the bug that would delete a plug-in or a track when pressing Delete/Backspace while editing a 3rd party plug-in in its own GUI.


  • Fixed a bug that would make a group slot lose its MIDI/Key mapping when moving the corresponding scene (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=140895)


  • Fixed a bug that prevented adding or removing the stop button of a group track slot while the group track is folded (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=140895)


  • Fixed a visual bug where a green overlay could be left orphaned in a 3rd party Ableton GUI


  • The Min or Max parameters in the mapping Browser, for mapped 3rd party plug-in parameters, could lose the focus as soon as they were touched. This made it impossible to edit them via the computer keyboard arrow keys.


  • The Ableton GUI of an AU plug-in would be empty after loading a native AU preset, for plug-ins having fewer than 32 parameters. In such a case, the GUI should be automatically populated.


  • Fixed a bug that prevented removing a parameter from the Ableton GUI of a 3rd party plu-gin while Configure mode is ON, if it was Macro-mapped.


  • Dragging a first warped clip in a non-empty Arrangement would sometimes set the tempo of the Live Set. The correct condition is that this should only happen if the Arrangement contains no clip at all.


  • It was not possible to click inside a multi-selection while in Key or MIDI map mode in order to change the selection and select only one of its constituents. This is now fixed.


  • Fixed another key handling problem for some plug-ins using a Cocoa view.


  • Fixed a bug where MIDI notes could hang if an AU plug-in was deactivated and then reactivated.


  • If the last note within the Loop brace, in a MIDI clip, overlapped the Loop end, selecting the loop brace and choosing "Duplicate" would duplicate the looped material's offset. Now duplication correctly duplicates the Loop length, at the correct position.


  • When an External Instrument was routed to a multi-timbral MIDI instrument, and that instrument or the containing track was moved, the routing would be reset to the default output. Now routings are correctly remembered.


  • Improved audio streaming performance for specific Live Sets with many audio files.


  • Corrected a bug that would make computer keyboard selection behave incorrectly after selecting a clip via remote control.


  • Fixed crash when mouse was pressed in the detail view before sample analysis finished.


  • Fixed crash when dragging MIDI from XLN's Addictive Drums.


  • Fixed a crash that occurred when zooming into a large waveform with an extreme zoom factor.


  • Fixed a bug that made Collision silent after deleting it and undoing.


  • Various other stability improvements
  • Live v 8.1.4 6 juil. 2010 Windows
    Improvements

  • Combination Mode is now active when multiple Akai APC40/20s are in use. This means that the topmost controller selected in your preferences will control tracks 1-8, the second controller selected will control tracks 9-16, and so on. When an APC40 and an APC20 are connected at the same time, the APC20's buttons will default to Track Selection, and its faders will default to volume.



  • Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused the Drum Machines LD Live Pack to not work in Live Intro.

  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when deleting a Drum Rack pad.

  • Fixed a crash that could occur when moving a track with an automated parameter that is also MIDI mapped.

  • In very rare cases, Live would crash when running extremely loud signals through Overdrive.

  • Custom Min/Max values for MIDI- or key-mapped parameters on VST plug-ins would be lost after saving and reloading the Set.

  • When using clip envelopes to modulate the parameters of third-party plug-ins, the modulation range would be broken after saving and reloading the Set. (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=141378&start=0)

  • Some Sets which were saved in earlier versions of Live could not be opened in recent versions.

  • In certain cases, clips would not blink properly when using Follow Actions with launch quantization set to None. (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=140427)

  • Dragging a sample onto the waveform of an existing clip in Session view would reset the Launch settings of the clip.

  • In certain cases, launching a warped audio clip would play the unwarped version simultaneously.

  • In some cases, Gate launch mode for Session view clips would not behave correctly.

  • In certain cases, conflicting fade and volume envelopes would inadvertently mute audio clips in the Arrangement.

  • Occasionally, loud clicks could occur when using crossfades in the Arrangement.

  • When recording into the Arrangement, clicks could occur when "Create Fades on Clip Edges" was enabled.

  • In certain cases, clicks could occur when turning on the filter in Sampler/Simpler while holding a note.

  • The faders on the Mackie Control would not behave correctly when volume is automated in Live.

  • In certain cases, when recording a clip in Session View, the APC40 would not flash red to reflect the state of the clip. (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=133154)

  • Fixed a bug that would cause automation to always be overridden when using Ultra Analog. This would result in the Back to Arrangement button becoming active.

  • In some cases, the dialog box that should show trial options when starting Live without an authorization would be empty instead.

  • On OS X, missing media files without a file extension could not be replaced.

  • In certain cases, a dialog about temporary files would be shown even though there were no temporary files.

  • Live now ignores invalid MIDI data (for example, MIDI CC values that don't exist.)

  • Fixed a rare crash that occurred when opening documents while the mouse moves in certain areas.

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when dragging a Live Set which contains a sample that has been shortened outside of Live to the Session view, while this sample is already in use in the Arrangement view.

  • Fixed an issue in which configuring a third-party plug-in by clicking one of its parameters in the plug-in GUI while Configure is ON would not show the right value for the parameter in the Live GUI of the plug-in.

  • The APC 40 wouldn't always update its state properly when loading a new Live set.

  • Live could hang when undoing the deletion of a parameter mapping in the Live GUI of a 3rd party plug-in.

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when firing a scene while moving a Group Track.

  • We now ignore "non automatable" parameters for AU plug-ins, in terms of assigning them in the Live plug-in GUI.

  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when loading a new song or quitting Live while the mouse hovered a Max for Live device.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Truly the best Looping Sequencer for Mac or Windows. Live 1.0 was great, but 3.0 is amazing. Well worth the money!!!!
