Ableton Live 9 includes some exciting new device developments, made in partnership with Cytomic. Cytomic's Glue Compressor is now a native device in Live 9, featuring a new GUI and expanded sidechaining options. Additionally, we worked with Cytomic on new filter algorithms for EQ8. Here's Cytomic's Andrew Simper on the new filters:
"The new algorithm for EQ 8 is an analog model of a linear SVF circuit, and as such shares the excellent noise performance, as well as ultra smooth modulation properties, of the ideal circuit. The cutoff of EQ 8 can be swept smoothly with automation without the horrible artefacts of commonly used EQ algorithms."
