Ableton alpha and beta testing

We aim to ensure that Ableton Live is completely stable music software. Because Live supports so many different workflows and hardware setups there are just too many scenarios for us to test by ourselves – to do so, we need your help. The goal of our testing programs is to find and reproduce all unintended behavior in the alpha and beta versions of Live that is not present in the most recent release version.

Public beta program

We are currently beta-testing the latest version of Live. The beta version is available to all owners of Live 11.

To join the beta test and to access the latest beta installers, sign up to our Centercode bug tracking system.

Closed alpha program

Our closed alpha testing program is for 'the crashologists' wanting to test with the very latest version of Live in early development. Apply to join the alpha program .

All information is kept confidential and will be used only in connection with research and testing at Ableton. The number of test user places are limited. As a result, we cannot guarantee that everyone will be able to participate. Please see our privacy policy.
