    • Please note: File names and locations may change until the official release. Remember to "collect all and save" when working with the new and updated Packs!
  • When the Clip Color preference is set to Random, all armed tracks will record clips in Arrangement View with the same random color, to indicate that those clips were recorded at the same time.
  • Live 10 themes have been removed.
  • Improved some Max for Live error messages.
  • Added the following changes to Macro Control variations:

    • The Launch Macro Variation buttons are now more prominent.
    • The last recalled variation now shows its Launch Macro Variation button in a darker color.
    • If Macro Controls are changed, the last recalled variation now shows an "*" icon next to its name, to indicate that the state is different from the saved one.
    • Upon loading a Rack preset, the first variation to match the preset's Macro Control dials is set as last recalled, to indicate which variation is active. (Note: due to limitations in how Macro Control dials are restored upon loading a document, this does not work in regular loading scenarios.)
  • When any of the following plug-ins are loaded, MPE will be enabled by default in those devices:

    • Audio Damage Continua
    • Audio Damage Phosphor 3
    • Cherry Audio DCO-106
    • Newfangled Audio Pendulate
    • TAL Software TAL-J-8
  • Updated various info texts.
  • The default Jump Follow Action Target value is now "1" (which will now fire the first slot), instead of "0" (which stopped playback).
  • Grid lines now have a more even base opacity between themes. Default grid lines are now easier to distinguish. The inactive foreground color of the Session and Arrangement View selector buttons now matches Live's other main view selector buttons.

Bugfixes:

  • Core Library:
    • Added missing default presets for Legacy Audio Effects
  • Accessing a dict that is too large from Max via Javascript or when the device is open for editing no longer crashes but instead prints an error.
  • Sending a dictionary from Max that is too large now prints a more descriptive error.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from loading presets of Max for Live devices that they owned, or Racks containing such devices, by double-clicking.
  • Fixed a crash when running the "Convert Melody to New MIDI Track" command on a specific sample on Windows.
  • Previously, using "Alt" with the scroll wheel on a hovered Arrangement lane header would not always resize that lane.
  • Previously, toggling Solo via the Edit menu command or the "S" keyboard shortcut ignored the selection on the content of a linked take lane, and instead toggled Solo for the highlighted track.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when loading a certain clip.
  • The progress dialog that appears when exporting audio or freezing a track would look incorrect when external audio instruments or effects were being used.
  • Under certain conditions, opening a context menu on the main automation lane would not collapse an existing time selection on other tracks / lanes. 

11.0b25 Release Notes

New features and improvements:

  • The user will see a new default preset for the Compressor device.
  • The Frequency Dial Mode, MIDI Gate switch, Modulation Mode, Mono/Poly switch, Pitch Mode, Pitch Bend Range and Polyphony of Spectral Resonator can now be read, set, and observed via Max for Live.
  • Updated the "What's New in Live" lesson, and added some small fixes to various other lessons.
  • Updated various Help View lesson translations in DE, ES, FR, IT, JA and ZH.
  • Live can now detect whether VST2 and AU plugins support MPE and automatically place them in MPE mode if so. Note that this relies on the plugins correctly reporting that they support MPE; many MPE-capable plugins do not yet do this, so the impact of this change is limited for the time being.
  • Users of the Python API (control surfaces, Max for Live) are now able to observe changes to the number macro variations in Instrument and Drum Racks.
  • "Copy Selection to Main Lane" entry is now removed from the Edit menu and is added to the take lane context menu instead of "Draw Mode" entry with a separator line below.
  • Improved contrast in the Light Theme selection colors.
  • For Spectral Resonator, modulation modes should sound similarly loud. Old sets+presets should sound the same.
  • Added info text for take lanes.
  • When using the rubber-band tool in the velocity or probability editor to select notes, only notes whose head is in the selection rectangle will be selected. This makes it easier to precisely select notes when they are overlapping in time.
  • When using Draw Mode with Pitch Lock enabled to create notes in the MIDI editor, the note velocity now remains fixed unless the Cmd (Ctrl on Windows) modifier is pressed.
  • Max for Live
    • Updated the bundled Max build to version 8.1.9 Beta 2bed8a1 
      • Updated Live Object Model Documentation
      • Fixed crash on startup in some cases (Frameworks plist issue)

Bugfixes:

  • When using Live in German, the CPU meters in the CPU meter drop-down are now properly aligned.
  • Fix that swapping take lane content with Cmd/Ctrl + Arrow Up/Down would not work repeatedly when content in a take lane of a linked track is selecting and the take lanes in another linked track are not visible, e.g. because the track is folded.
  • Fixes that Live hangs and must be forced to quit when turning Audio Engine 'Off' in some cases.
  • Fixes a bug where flattening a MIDI track would cause sidechain routings from it to be disconnected.
  • Fixes a crash when deleting or moving a track that contains a video clip in the arrangement on Windows.
  • No more crashes when navigating highlighted return tracks with the arrow keys.
  • Fix issues where clip names were not drawn correctly in draw mode.
  • Deactivating a Max for Live device that outputs audio does not cause a click anymore.
  • If a Live set was loaded and an audio clip was immediately loaded into the detail view, wrong information about the sample could have been displayed (e.g. 16-bit when the file really had a 24-bit resolution). This is now fixed. Until the sample is online, nothing is shown, and once the sample is online, the correct information is shown.
  • Fixes the following bug: if the tempo follower was turned on while nudging or if recording was turned on while nudging and while tempo follower was already on, then the visual aspect of the tempo automation (gray/red for overriden/enabled) would not be updated until the tempo follower had generated a tempo update.
    Also, when nudging while tempo following is on, releasing the nudging button doesn't introduce a tempo jump anymore.
  • The parameters' size does not "flicker" when changing banks in all devices and especially changing the "section" parameter of Hybrid Reverb.
  • Disabled Crop and Reverse context menu entries for point in time selection.
  • The auto-select button icon in rack devices is now visible when dark theme is on.
  • Fix that unlinking tracks after clicking or right-clicking on a track
    header's link icon would not unlink linked tracks in folded group tracks.
  • Preserve the selection of grouped tracks when folding and unfolding a track.
  • Previously, when deleting the last event of a per-note event automation, the dotted-line was stuck at the position of the last event. Now, the dotted-line correctly returns to its proper initial position.
  • Fixed a bug that caused graphic issues with certain plugins on macOS.

    • Added new Grooves
    • Added new MIDI Clips
    • Macro colours, names and positions got refined
    • Acoustic Drum Racks now have Macro Variations and improved effects processing

  • Updated info text translations in German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese languages.
  • Unified the outline color of the Arrangement Overview, Clip View Selector, and Device View Selector.
  • The CPU overload notification can now be disabled in the Control Bar via a new "CPU Overload Indication" entry in the CPU meter's dropdown menu, and in the Overload Indicator's context menu.
  • There is no longer a double border around the automation/velocity/probability value editing/display box.
  • A recording clip will no longer show the fades of any clips that are overridden.
  • The following markers now look slightly different:

    • Clip start/end and loop start/end markers in the Detail View (when a single clip is selected)
    • The Follow Action Time marker in the Detail View
    • Loop start/end markers in the Arrangement
    • The insert marker in the Arrangement
  • The MPE Control device's background now respects Live's themes.
  • When using the Hybrid device, the Status Bar will now only show the notification that an IR has been trimmed upon dragging and dropping a file, or selecting an IR from the User category. The notification will now also disappear immediately upon loaded an IR that is not trimmed.
  • Added a dedicated info text for source highlights on take lanes.
  • On Push 2, the Corpus device shows a graph visualization for its filter and has an improved UI.
  • Updated the Scene View's background color.
  • Added some visual changes to the piano roll and MIDI Note Editor:

    • The width of scale highlighting on piano roll keys has increased from three pixels to eight pixels.
    • Scale highlighting now starts on the very first pixel of the MIDI Note Editor's key tracks.
    • A shaded vertical line is drawn on MIDI notes when they are cut on the left.
  • In Automation Mode, when creating a selection on a linked track's automation lane, choosing one of the following commands from the context menu will now apply that action to all linked tracks: Rename, Deactivate Clip, Split, Consolidate, Create Fade, Reset Fades, Freeze Track, Crop Clip(s), and Reverse Clip(s). After the action is applied, Live selects the content of affected lanes, and undoing the action restores the initial content selection.
  • When copying and pasting clips from a folded Group Track, take lane clips are no longer copied and take lanes are not considered as target lanes for pasting clips. Also, whether a target Group Track is folded or unfolded, pasting clips there from a folded Group Track now produces the same result.
  • Users should see more reliable engine performance on machines with the Apple M1 CPU.
  • The spacing between the buttons that are used to toggle velocity, probability, and per-note expression lanes in the MIDI editor is improved.
  • Users will have to wait less time when creating new sets.
  • Changed the label on the "probability" lane of the MIDI editor, and reduce the width of the vertical rulers.
  • Plugin windows are not animated on Mac anymore when the plugin asks for a resize, which looks better.
  • Max for Live users will get access to Hybrid Reverb properties available in the Live API.

Bugfixes:

  • Core Library:
    • Added missing groove previews
  • On Push 2, the Spectral Resonator device's PBend Range control is now shown in semitone units and is more sensitive.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when Live attempted to select a hidden track, under certain circumstances.
  • Previously, some menu commands would not work correctly, or could even crash, when switching between note editing and per-note expression editing.
  • Previously, right-clicking on a track header's link icon would not select all linked tracks, if that track had been nested within a Group Track multiple times.
  • In Session View, when a track is highlighted but no slot is selected, pressing the left/right arrow key now moves the highlight to the previous or next track.
  • When clicking on a scene number, the selection behavior is now consistent with clicking in the adjacent scene name area.
  • Fixed the following bugs in the MPE Control device:

    • Previously, Global Pitch Bend messages were interpreted as Note Pitch Bend messages, under certain circumstances.
    • Previously, Global AT values could be reset to zero when a new note was triggered.
  • The Hybrid Reverb device is now correctly displayed on Push 2.
  • Previously, when zooming closely enough on a MIDI clip that its notes displayed their note names, altered notes such as "A#" were clipped to only show "A". Now, note names that do not fit the view are no longer displayed.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when merging tracks from existing Sets that contained multichannel Max for Live devices.
  • Nudging behaves as expected when used while the Tempo Follower is active (i.e., the tempo does not change in the Control Bar when a Nudge button is pressed).
  • Control surface preferences are reset, and saving and recalling control surface preferences works correctly again.
  • The parameters for Phaser-Flanger are grouped meaningfully on Push 1+2. Parameter names on Push are now correct.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when applying extreme modulation to filters within various built-in devices.
  • Fixes a bug that caused the loss of all expression data in a clip when changing note velocities using the draw tool in the velocity editor.
  • Fixes a bug when the only selected note’s curve could be dragged similarly to a multi-curve drag scenario.
  • Fixes that the source highlight info text would not be shown on the top part of a highlight in draw mode.
  • Fix that adding new tracks via keyboard shortcuts or from the "Create" menu would not consider the current selection of take lanes and automation lanes and always add them at the end of the tracks.

11.0b23 Release Notes

New features and improvements:

  • Updated various info texts and the What's New in Live lesson.
  • The follow action time widget in the scene follow action will use the scene's time signature if it's active and all selected scenes have the same time signature, otherwise it will use the song's time signature.
  • On Push:

    • The second page of macros will always show if any of them are mapped, irrespective of the rack being folded or unfolded
    • Pressing the second page of macros while it is selected opens and closes the rack's devices (except for drum racks, where the main rack device showing the first page of macros doesn't do that either)
    • Holding the second page of macros shows the chain selector view, just like the main rack device which shows the first page of macros
    • When you are viewing the macros of a rack, and there is a second page of macros as one of the macros 9-16 are mapped, you can now press the "Enter" button to enter the rack.
  • When using draw mode in the velocity/probability editor, the handles and notes that will be affected (depending on the current grid setting) are now highlighted.
  • Double clicking specific Hybrid eq parameters resets them to new default values.
  • The option to upload to SoundCloud has been disabled.
  • Max for Live
    Updated the bundled Max build to version 8.1.9 Beta 7d725bf 
    • Add and implement GetBGColor

Bugfixes:

  • After inserting take lanes in a linked track group track highlight was moved to the last track in the linked group. Now the highlight is preserved. On inserting take lanes the selection cursor item should not be set either as it would change the track highlight later when user unselects a lane with CMD+Click.

    This fixes as well the scrolling behaviour. After inserting take lanes arrangement was always scrolling to the last inserted lane. Now it only scrolls to the highlighted track when necessary (when after inserting a lane highlighted track was not visible anymore). If the track highlight was not on any of the inserted take lanes, track highlight will be set on the track of last inserted take lane.
  • Fix inconsistencies when copying & pasting, duplicating and nudging clips in invisible take lanes of tracks within linked track groups. These clips are ignored.
    This also fixed crashes that could occur when pasting, moving or nudging hidden linked take lane clips.
  • Fix that Live would crash when stopping a recording after linking tracks while they are recording.
  • Fix that crossfade curve adjustments occasionally jump when dragging the curve handle with the mouse.
  • It's possible to delete racks with a 2nd bank and continue to use Push 2.
  • Fixes a bug where the Show/Hide Editor button was not available (when loaded with set or as device preset).
  • Fixed a bug where, when the song was stopped and restarted while a follow action was already triggered (flashing), the current clip would be played rather than the following clip. Starting the following clip immediately when resuming the song or when scrubbing is consistent with Live 10 behavior, with unlinked follow actions, and with linked follow actions that have a multiplier of 2x or more.
  • Fixed:

    • renaming in the browser might lead to a crash
    • copying folder or files from project to project might crash
    • instantiating a plugin with special characters in the plugin name might crash
  • When a set of slots is selected and the initial anchor of the extended selection is not in the set anymore, the selection can still be extended from the remaining selected slots.
  • There were 1px high areas between and below the velocity/probability editors where it was possible to zoom-scoll the editor. These are too small to be useful, so they're removed.
  • Fixed a bug where extracting a groove and then saving in the groove pool would make Live crash.
  • Fixed a bug where Live crashed when pressing CMD/CTRL+A in MIDI Editor after first clicking in slide/pressure lane (Note Expressions).
  • Under Certain Circumstances, there was a visual glitch around the groove pool chooser in the browser side bar.

11.0b22 Release Notes

New features and improvements:

  • Hitting the return key when the tempo or time signature widgets are selected selects the scene header.
  • The left/right arrow keys now navigate to the tempo and time signature widgets as well.
  • Pressing the return key when the tempo or time signature widgets are selected selects the scene header instead of launching the scene. The scene only launches when the header is selected.
  • While text editing the scene name, tempo or time signature values, pressing tab or shift+tab navigates to next or previous widget accordingly while remaining in text editing mode. The navigation goes to the next or previous scene when reaching the last or first widget in a scene.
  • The Release Velocity in NoteLenght is now set to 0 by default.
  • Spectral Resonator and Spectral Time will now save CPU by deactivating when silent (and by extension deactivating all downstream devices).
  • When using the arrow/up down keys in the velocity/probability editor to adjust values, the new value range is indicated briefly in the ruler on the left.
  • Using draw mode with grid enabled in the velocity/probability editor now affects notes based on their precise start/end times. Previously, draw mode would affect notes based on where their "lollipop heads" were visible, which could affect notes outside of the clicked grid cell when zoomed out a lot.
  • It is now possible to change the note selection in the MIDI editor using the arrow keys in combination with a modifier (Alt on Mac, Ctrl on Windows), even while editing or drawing per-note expression breakpoints.
  • Updated the What's New in Live lesson.
  • Upon loading an impulse response that exceeds our maximum possible size, users will now receive a message in the status bar that their impulse response has been shortened and still be able to use the trimmed file, rather than simply receiving a notification that 'The impulse response file is too long.' A previous crash when loading a True Stereo pair where one of the files was an appropriate length but all 4 channels together exceeded the buffer size is also implicitly fixed with this new scheme.
  • When attempting to load an outdated user remote script, users will see a warning message (with a don't show again option) which explains that the script was written for an old version of Live and needs to be updated.
  • Previously, the time selection would be cleared on mouse-up when selecting a single note in the per-note-events tabs.
    Now, the time selection stays the same when selecting a single note, and gets cleared only when interacting with the events. The time selection is synced back when clicking on the note again, or switching to the notes' tab.
  • Key name labels come closer to the separator lines when there is not enough space (e.g. full zoom out)
  • A horizontal line at the top of the key range is removed, and doesn't come across the "C8" label anymore when the ruler is fully zoomed out (in particular, in the "disabled view").
  • In Envelope mode ("disabled piano ruler"):
    • Fixed the condition for drawing the keys or not
    • The vertical separator line at the left of the ruler remains visible
    • A vertical line is not displayed anymore at the right when keys are invisible
    • The ruler remains aligned when the MIDI editor contains no notes, in the case where the keys are fully zoomed-out.
  • Core Library:
    • Added new (MPE) Instrument Racks and Drum Racks
    • Added new presets for Spectral Resonator, Spectral Time and Redux
    • Improved Wavetable default preset: Includes a Press mapping to Warp and a Slide mapping to OSC 1 Position
    • Please note: File names and locations may change until the official release. Remember to "collect all and save" when working with the Live 11 Beta Core Library and new and updated Packs!
  • Max for Live
    • Updated the bundled Max build to version 8.1.9 Beta 0c70a11 
      • CEF / jweb: update to CEF (primarily for MacOS and Apple Silicon compatibility)
      • Clippings: new Global.db2Value clipping
      • M4L Device: "locked Patcher Background Color" works
      • send~/receive~: fixed freeze when setting names of objects (fixes Vector FM device)

Bugfixes:

  • The Max MIDI Effect device is now correctly capitalized (was Max Midi Effect)
  • Live does not crash anymore with a beatseeker assert.
  • Fixes a bug where dragging a groove onto either the groove box or the clip detail view caused a crash when content editing was disabled (e.g. because not all MIDI clips are looped or because not all audio clips have the same length and set of warp markers).
  • Fixes a crash that could occur when making a time selection while editing expression envelopes.
  • When tabbing the session view between windows, the scene name remains in the same position in the scene header.
  • Fixes a bug whereby LFO would create an additional unnecessary undo step when mapping the device to a parameter. Envelope MIDI now instantiates with MPE active, so that MPE data can pass through and reach other devices in the device chain.
  • This fixes an issue where wrong values of per-note expression would be played when having ramps or curves between breakpoints.
  • On macOS, Live does not crash in rare circumstances when audio interfaces change.
  • Fixes two bugs: a) notes which were made as small as possible and which were located at the left edge of the visible range of the note editor could not be selected with the rubberband, and b) these notes would not be displayed in the velocity and probablility editors.
  • Deleting an audition take lane will now be correctly reflected in the audio engine. Adding/deleting an auditioned take lane clip will now be correctly reflected in the audio engine.
  • Fixes a rare crash caused by Live trying to show the user mathematically impossible colors.
  • Fixes a bug where for unlooped MIDI clips, no notes would be drawn beyond the end of the "unlooped loop" (the clip end marker).
  • Fixes a crash where pressing a high note on the computer MIDI keyboard would crash when the keyboard octave was set to C8.
  • Core Library:
    • Some MIDI clips opened with wrong grooves selected

11.0b21 Release Notes

New features and improvements:

  • The (previously so called) "Invert Wet" parameter of Phaser-Flanger is now called "FB Inv" on Push and in Max for Live.
  • It is now possible to switch the tempo follower on/off from the Live API.
  • Controls that open and close views are less visually distracting.
  • Show clips of all linked tracks in Detail view in Automation mode.
  • Cleanup out of note bounds per note events during note resizing from keyboard shortcut shift+left.

Bugfixes:

  • Fix bug "Audio samples dragged into Live after renaming them in Live's browser shows wrong name"
  • Fix bug "Browser: a M4L device cannot be moved into another folder when over a M4L device in the target folder."
    Fix bug "Live produces weird folders when saving presets"
  • When closing Live, it does not crash anymore in rare circumstances.
  • Fixes a bug where clicking on a scene while another scene is scheduled as a follow action would launch the follow action instead of the clicked scene.
  • Fix bug "Regression: Drum Racks from L10 Curated Collections show up in Audio Effects/Utilities/Audio Effect Racks/Drums "
  • Fixed a bug where the Indexer crashes on macOS 10.15.
    Fixed a bug where the Live index quits unexpectedly.
  • A couple of UX fixes/tweaks in the magnitude editor:
    • Fixed: Cmd-dragging a magnitude marker would add the note to the selection (but Cmd-clicking doesn't; the multiselection modifier is Shift in the MIDI editor) which made it hard to change velocity ranges of multiple notes in a row because the selection would be extended each time
    • Velocity ranges are no longer shown in draw mode when you hold Cmd
    • The "line tool" or "ruler tool" in the magnitude editor in draw mode was moved to the Option modifier on Mac (Ctrl on Windows) to allow using Cmd (Alt on Windows) to control the grid
    • The grid is respected again in draw mode: If the grid is on, draw mode affects all markers in the current grid cell.
    • You can press Cmd (Alt on Windows) to invert the current "grid enabled" setting; the grid lines visually indicate this
    • Removed an incorrect sentence saying that you can use Shift to make draw mode affect only the selected notes (the corresponding behavior was changed in 2008 and the info text was never touched)
    • Added a sentence to the info text explaining the modifier for the line/ruler tool
  • The spectrum visualization does not stop anymore when Hybrid Reverb is grouped in a rack.
  • Fix that "Cut Time" and "Duplicate Time" did not copy take lane clips.
  • Fix that dragging & dropping clips including clips from a folded group track could crash in certain cases.
  • When interacting with breakpoints of per-note expression curves, curved segments now correctly preserve their shape.
  • Using the jump follow action to jump to a slot with no stop button will no longer crash and will just do nothing.

11.0b20 Release Notes

New features and improvements:

  • The Audio Effects categories have been refined.
  • Velocity of probability lane can be activated by clicking on the "header" / vertical ruler view on the left
  • The active lane's header has a highlighted background.
  • When the MIDI velocity or probability editor is very small, it's now easier to drag the markers to precise values. It's now also possible to hold the Shift key to allow fine-tuning the values with further increased precision.
    When changing MIDI note velocities or probabilities with the up/down arrow key, the value changes in steps of 10 by default.
    Again, you can hold the the Shift key to increase the precision and change the value in steps of 1. Previously, this behavior was inverted. It has been changed to match the usual "fine tune" modifier conventions in Live.
    In order to change velocity ranges with the keyboard, it is now sufficient to hold Cmd on Mac / Ctrl on Windows. Previously, the modifier was Cmd+Shift. It was changed to allow using the fine tune modifier also to change velocity ranges.
  • The probability lane remains active when the velocity lane is made visible.
  • On Push, when pressing and holding a note in any sequencer and clip view, the velocity range displayed should go from -127 to 127 and have a + sign in front of it when positive.
  • For Hybrid Reverb, the user will now be able to use the arrows near the impulse response dropdowns to flip through impulse responses even while Convolution is technically inactive at Blend 100 in Parallel mode.
  • The mixer button to show and hide the CPU metering section has been changed to the letter 'c'.
  • Cleanup out of note bounds per note events during operations that causes selected notes to be resized. Such operations are Legato, Quantize, Reverse, Midi stretch markers and mul2/div2.
    Expression curves no longer "squish" destructively when dragged up or down, i.e., if you drag a curve upwards or downwards until it squishes, dragging it back in the opposite direction during the same gesture will restore its previous shape.
  • In multi-clip editing, with large numbers of arrangement clips selected, this makes switching the foreground clip, switching on and off focus mode, and deselecting all clips a lot faster.
  • Allows users to show or hide keyword folders in some browser labels (Instruments, AudioFX).
  • Core Library
    • Added MIDI clips including a variety of single chords
    • Added new (MPE) Instrument Racks, Audio Effect Racks and Drum Racks
    • Added new presets for Hybrid Reverb
    • Scale Device presets got aligned with new MIDI clip scales
    • Brought back Live 10 MIDI Effect Racks
    • Demo & Sketch template now comes with improved Drum clips and Instrument Racks
    • Please note: File names and locations may change until the official release. Remember to "collect all and save" when working with the Live 11 Beta Core Library and new and updated Packs!
  • Max for Live
    • Updated the bundled Max build to version 8.1.9 Beta a22d309
      • M4L Live Object Model: updated for Live 11
      • Audio Plug-In Scanner: works on Windows
      • mtr: read message works properly
      • Jitter in javascript (jsjitter): fixed usage

Bugfixes:

  • For Hybrid Reverb, loading mono IR presets works without problems now.
  • When a time selection is set from the magnitude editors (velocity, probability)

    • The state of Chance UI controls (Velocity Range and Randomize Value) are now updated accordingly
    • The Transpose slider will correctly affect the notes from background clip effectively falling in this time selection.
  • When a probability value is entered for the selected notes using the keyboard, the value box now appears centered horizontally on the selected lollipops.
  • The detail view's leftmost border is aligned with the browser again when the info view is closed.
  • Fixes some inconsistencies in the focus and selection behavior when clicking on automation lane envelope and device chooser, '+'-button and fold button.
  • Fixes a flickering note highlight when hovering over a note while holding a key.
  • Fix incorrect drawing of clip names on take lane clips when sample is offline or when monitoring is set to "In".
  • Fixed a crash that could happen when zooming into a clip with a trackpad gesture.
  • Fixed a crash that happened when a user requested Clip Warp Markers from a midi clip.
  • The name of a Max For Live device is again visible in the device chain scroller.
  • Fixes an issue where per-note pitchbend curves would show unexpected snap-to-semitone behavior.
  • Insert take lanes in all linked tracks even if not all linked track headers are selected.
  • This fixes an issue where wrong values of per-note expression would be played when having ramps or curves between breakpoints.
  • This lets users route audio into Max for Live Instruments over input 1 / 2 again.
  • Browser: Fix keeping column setup for color labels
  • Fix rename folders
  • Before, when unfreezing a track with a Hybrid reverb, changing the impulse response and then selecting 'freeze track' again, live would use the frozen file rather than compute a new one.
  • LFO scope would not function properly if the device was instantiated while the audio engine was not active.
  • LFO might fail to display the LFO waveform under certain circumstances.
  • DS-Kick would click when triggered with the mouse.
  • Fixes some crashes related to (nested) group tracks.
  • Don't enable warp so often when replacing samples
  • Audio hangs if in Live 9 created Simple Delay clip automation on audio track is changed in the Delay Device
  • Core Library
    • Some Hybrid Reverb presets opened with the wrong algorithm type selected
    • A missing sample was reported when loading the Hybrid Reverb preset Voice Plate.adv

    • Some mod wheel mappings in Wavetable presets have been disabled

11.0b19 Release Notes

New features and improvements:

  • When there is a time selection in the MIDI editor:

    • Velocity Range now has the correct enabled/disabled state depending on whether some notes of the foreground clip are included or not in this selection
    • Velocity Range now displays the correct deviation value that corresponds to the notes included in the time selection
    • Velocity Range now applies only to the notes included in the time selection

      In Multi-Clip Selection:
    • Randomization value is now enabled if only notes from the foreground clips are selected / in time selection, and disabled otherwise (thereby behaving just like the Velocity Range control).
  • Progress dialogs such as the pack installation dialog will now show progress below the bar, to make them easier to read in all themes.
  • Hybrid gets a bit more efficient
  • In Push, Hybrid Reverb Width was renamed to Stereo. Adedd Bass Mono parameter for Hybrid Reverb Global Bank on Push.
  • A lot more convolution impulse responses are available
  • Added info text for linked track indicator.
  • The Track And Clip Colors > Reduced Automatic Colors preference now takes effect immediately rather than at the next loaded song.
  • Users cannot toggle MPE Mode for their Max for Live devices via the context menu anymore. It's up to the device developer to set the "is_mpe" attribute in Max.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed that Live shows a "Setup Core Library..." modal dialog on every startup (and not only on the first or after an update).
  • Sometimes when dragging a scene's numerator field and then dragging the denominator field, the numerator would change when dragging the denominator.
  • Live no longer crashes when right-clicking on a Send control in Arrangement view when that Send is controlled by Max (e.g. LFO).
  • Fix that Live would crash when a user clicks on the link button on an arrangement track header and some linked tracks are contained in a folded group track.
  • Users will no longer experience a fatal program crash when loading a True Stereo IR where one of the files is mono.
  • Fix that dragging clips would not move all clips when the selection contains a folded group track.
  • Previously, esp. for audio tracks the start and stop times of recording would differ at tiny bit. That would break the linked editing of those clip starts and stop times across the link.
  • Fixed a reproducible crash when pressing (CMD + A) in Pressure lane (Note Expressions)
  • MIDI notes can be quantized in focus mode and when editing multiple clips.
  • Impulse presets show again sample names.
  • Fixed a crash that could happen while moving tracks with Max for Live devices on it.
  • Fixes swapping when there are no highlights on any take lanes in the selection and fixes selecting take lane on swap from inaudible to audible region.
  • MIDI note names were slightly visible in the envelope editor, especially underneath the "shade" of modulation envelopes.
  • Fix some inconsistencies/bugs with samples/videos without "audio data".
  • Tiny text fixes.
  • This fixes a bug where the Live clip editor would always switch to the expression tab when holding a note by pressing and holding a pad on Push.
  • Fixed a crash when launching a clip via Key/MIDI mapping if the clip is in a track that's grouped at least twice, the outer group track is folded and the "Select on Launch" preference is on.
  • Under Certain Circumstances, an incorrect value would be displayed in the scene's time signature widget in the master track after reordering scenes via drag&drop.
  • The Fold and Scale buttons next to the MIDI editor are now (un)checked correctly after loading a set.
  • The text on buttons showing a multi-selection with different values could show a colored fringe on some UI zoom levels.
