Max for Live Improvements

OS Support

  • Live now supports macOS Catalina (10.15).
    Important: before updating to macOS 10.15, please read this Knowledge Base article.
  • On macOS, Live now uses AVFoundation instead of QTKit / QuickTime for MP3 decoding, video playback and video export. The MP3 experience should be unchanged. Video playback and exporting is now much faster. Some videos using old formats can no longer be played back. For a list of formats that are no longer supported, see https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT209000 (Note: this article is about FinalCut, but applies to Live's video support as well.) While running macOS Mojave (10.14) or earlier, such videos can be converted into a supported format by opening them in QuickTime Player (see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202884 for more information).
    Please read this Knowledge Base article.

Automation

  • When dragging, stretching or skewing automation, or when changing the curve of a segment, pressing the ESC key now resets the automation to its original state.
  • The Toggle Automation/Modulation buttons now appear grayed out for unwarped clips.
  • The global "Snap Automation To Grid" option is now ignored when Draw Mode is enabled, so the quantization always matches the visible grid.
  • A "No more automation events could be removed" message now appears in the Status Bar when performing the "Simplify Automation" command on an envelope has no effect.

Interface Improvements

  • Live now supports Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down key interactions in chooser controls and context menus. Home and End keys move the selection to the first and last options respectively. Page Up and Page Down keys move the selection by the size of the page, or by 25 entries if the chooser control is collapsed.
  • The metronome's Rhythm setting is now saved in the Live Set.
  • The "Freeze Track" command is now available in the context menu of automation lanes.
  • Live's browser now starts searching after entering a single Chinese character.
  • Adding or removing scenes in a Live Set with many scenes is now significantly faster.
  • Added support for emoji characters in all text fields on the following systems:
    • Windows 10 1803 and later 
    • macOS 10.11.6 and later
  • The Preferences dialog window is properly centered when Live's zoom level is not at 100%.

Device Improvements

  • In the Multiband Dynamics device, the "Shift" modifier is now used to fine-tune the bands, and the "CMD" (Mac) / "CTRL" (Win) modifier is used to adjust all bands simultaneously.
  • Text in the Redux device is now correctly displayed.
  • Made some minor refinements to the Channel EQ device's UI.

Control Surfaces

  • Added support for the Akai Professional Force, MPC X, and MPC Live.
  • Every Push 2 user will get a firmware update to v.1.0.64 if their Push firmware is older. This firmware version implements a fast SysEx that allows setting any RGB LED to any 16 bit-color, independent from the 128-entry palette.

VST3

  • Added support for the IInfoListener interface in VST3 plug-ins. Supported properties include Live's track name, track index and track color. Certain plug-ins will now show Live's track names in their Mixer section.
  • When running VST3 plug-ins in HiDPI mode, it is now possible to disable scaling their GUIs via a "Auto-Scale Plug-in Window" context menu entry. This entry appears in context menus of plug-in devices in the browser, and in the title bar of plug-in devices in the Device View.

Video

  • When selecting FLAC as the File Type in the Export Audio/Video dialog, video export is now disabled. AIFF or WAV must be selected to export video with sound. This is consistent with the MP3 export behavior.

Translations

  • Updated some info text translations in German, Spanish, French, Italian and Japanese.

Max for Live Improvements

  • Updated the bundled Max build to version 8.1.0.
  • Live will no longer load Max versions older than Max 8.1. When an external Max version older than 8.1 is selected, Live will fall back to the bundled version. Users cannot select Max versions older than 8.1 in the Preferences.

Interface

  • Improved the appearance of the Wavetable and Impulse devices, as well as Live's plug-in device panel.
  • Fixes three issues with crash recovery:
    • Crash recovery would crash again and again when trying to recover from a crash, instead of only recovering the history until a previous crash. 
    • When trying to recover a Live Set a second time, Live would end up with a corrupt history and possibly crash when undoing directly after recovering. 
    • The percent values in the crash recovery progress display would not start at 0% when recovering a file that was saved the last time Live was run.

Arrangement Editing

  • Tracks with sidechain routings can now be frozen.
  • Frozen tracks now provide Post-FX output routing to other tracks. This allows tracks that are sources for sidechains to be frozen.
  • It is now possible to freeze tracks which contain AU, VST or Max devices that receive audio from another track (sidechains).
  • Live now has a new option in the Rendering Options section of the Export Audio/Video dialog: "Include return and master effects". If selected, every track will be rendered as if it was soloed and the master track was being recorded. This means that return and master effects are included.
  • When a track with a sidechain is frozen, unfrozen, and frozen again, the track's audio is now always re-rendered. This ensures that changes in the sidechain source track are considered in the new rendered file.
  • The Arrangement Overview is now resizable, and its contents now always fit inside the box exactly.
  • When moving through the Arrangement using the arrow keys, the view will scroll to keep the selected track visible, if necessary.
  • When committing a groove on a MIDI clip, a time selection is only made if notes were selected prior to committing the groove.
  • Clicking on the timeline ruler will pause follow.
  • In arrangement, when calling "Select All" (e.g. by pressing Cmd+A), if there is a locator (cue marker) behind all material, the time selection will extend up to that marker.

Automation

  • It is now possible to transform automation horizontally and vertically: upon creating a time selection inside an automation lane, handles will appear, which allow to stretch / scale the selected automation.
  • Stretching time in the Envelope Editor is now possible with the Automation Transform tool, and the Note Stretch markers have been removed from the Envelope Editor. They are still available in the Note Editor.
  • It is now possible to edit the value of an automation breakpoint or segment using a context menu and keyboard. While hovering over a breakpoint or segment, right-click and press the new "Edit Value" context menu item to make the automation value box editable. Enter a new value and confirm the entry either by deselecting the value display box or hitting the Enter key.
  • When hovering over an automation and a 'preview' breakpoint is shown, users can right click and access an "Add Value" context menu item. The new breakpoint can then be added with the entered value.
  • When right-clicking on an automation lane, the context menu now reveals a number of pre-defined shapes that can be inserted into a given time selection. If no time selection exists, the length of the shape corresponds to the current grid quantization.
  • In Automation Mode, clip fades can be viewed and edited while holding down the "F" key.
  • Added buttons to the Envelopes box for Session clips to toggle between automation and modulation envelopes in the Clip View. Modulation envelopes in Arrangement clips can now be accessed directly via the clip envelope chooser. Previously, they were only accessible through a parameter's context menu. Modulation envelopes now appear in a modulation-specific color. Also, the LEDs in the clip envelope choosers now show whether a parameter is automated, modulated or both.
  • When drawing non-quantized automation (using draw mode with a disabled grid) or recording a continuous stream of value changes, Live now creates ramps instead of small discrete steps, to avoid unwanted zipper noise. Note that this excludes parameters that require discrete steps, e.g. pitch, on/off switches or choosers.
  • When drawing automation with a deactivated grid, Live will insert fewer breakpoints and tries to use curved segments whenever possible. This will significantly reduce the overall amount of breakpoints and makes it easier to edit the automation envelope afterwards. This also applies to drawing modulation, except when the parameter type doesn't support it.
  • Added a "Simplify Envelope" command to the context menu of automation envelopes within a time selection, which removes unnecessary breakpoints and tries to use curved segments whenever possible to allow easier breakpoint editing.
  • When clicking on a control in a clip's Sample Box in the Clip View (e.g., Clip Gain) the corresponding modulation envelope will be selected and displayed in the Clip Envelope Control chooser.
  • In automation envelopes, the strength of S-Shapes that were inserted via the context menu can be adjusted with the Opt/Alt curve modifier. 
  • Improved Live's history for Automation Mode. Now, only one undo/redo step is created when the value of a single automation segment, breakpoint or selection is edited using multiple subsequent mouse gestures.

  • It is now possible to edit the value of a time selection in an automation lane with no events. When right-clicking near the dotted line inside the selection, the "Edit Value" context menu command allows entering a value for the selected segment.

  • In automation lanes, the Automation Transform handles now snap at the top and bottom positions, and at the opposite top and bottom corner positions. Snapping is indicated by a less transparent frame color.

Browser

  • Live's database will keep working even if a second Live instance is running. Previously, this was not the case, thus resulting in a partially empty browser.

Control Surfaces

  • Added support for the Komplete Kontrol S Mk2 and Komplete Kontrol M32 keyboard controllers. Please note that it is necessary to update the Komplete Kontrol software to its latest version in order for the Live integration to work. You can update Komplete Kontrol via Native Instruments' Native Access application

Interface Improvements

  • The Arrangement View can now be zoomed using a pinch gesture on a supported trackpad/touchscreen. Pressing "ALT" while using the pinch gesture changes the track height.
  • The MIDI Note Editor, Sample Editor, Sampler and Simpler also support zooming by using a pinch gesture on a supported trackpad/touchscreen. Furthermore, the MIDI Note Editor can now be vertically zoomed using the pinch gesture on a supported trackpad/touchscreen while holding "ALT".
  • Arrangement tracks can now be resized vertically by pressing "ALT" and "+" or "ALT" and "-".
  • Entering Chinese, Korean or Japanese text now works correctly.
  • Using the shortcut "Opt/Alt" + "U" folds and unfolds all tracks in the same area / level. If the tracks are in a mixes state (e.g. some are folded, some are not), this third state is also remembered and can be restored by further pressing this same shortcut.
  • Tracks can be folded in the Arrangement View by pressing "U" (for selected tracks), or "ALT"+"U" (for all tracks).
  • It is now possible to fold and unfold Group Tracks in the Session View by pressing the "U" key. This also works when multiple Group Tracks are selected.
  • Automation lanes can now be resized vertically by pressing "ALT" and "+" or "ALT" and "-".
  • The "Show All Tracks" functionality that was bound to the "S" key in the Arrangement has been removed. The "S" key can now be used to solo tracks in the Session and Arrangement instead.
  • Pressing “H” in the Arrangement vertically resizes all tracks to fit the view exactly (or as much as possible).
  • Pressing “W” adjusts the Arrangement View's horizontal zoom so that the whole song fits to the view, with one bar of padding left and right.
  • Added “H” and “W” buttons next to the Arrangement Overview. These buttons have the same resizing functionality as the “H” and “W” keys in the Arrangement View, and are MIDI-mappable.
  • The "fit song to screen width" (“W”) and "fit all tracks to screen height" (“H”) now remember the view state when invoked. When invoking them again, the remembered view state is restored. Additionally, the respective buttons in Arrangement indicate whether a remembered state exists by changing their color.
  • When the Detail View is in focus and displaying either the Envelope Editor or Sample Editor, pressing `W` fits the clip region to the Detail View's width, snapping to the nearest bar on either side (when applicable).
  • When the Detail View is in focus, pressing "H" zooms in on the area from the lowest to the highest note in the clip. The behavior with multi-clip editing is also the same: notes in all edited clips are considered.
  • Pressing the "Z" key or clicking the View menu's "Zoom to Time Selection" command changes the height of selected content to fit the Arrangement View. The "X" key now allows zooming back out from the time selection. When zooming in multiple times using the "Z" key, the "X" key can be pressed multiple times to go back one step each time the key is pressed.
  • The "Z" and "X" keyboard shortcuts now work for MIDI clips in Clip View.
  • In the Arrangement, when only a few notes exist within a MIDI clip, they now appear in a larger size.
  • On Windows, Live now respects the Control Panel's "Choose how many lines to scroll each time" setting.
  • In the Arrangement Overview, clips now always appear in the same color as in the Arrangement.
  • The Clip Overview in Session View now shows the entire song, and visually aligns with the Arrangement Overview.
  • In the Arrangement, the "Zoom to/Back from Time Selection" actions are now animated.
  • When using the pinch gesture or mousewheel + modifier to zoom in the Arrangement View or Detail View while Follow is enabled, Live will now always zoom to the playhead.
  • Live now supports pixel-perfect scrolling on Apple Trackpads and Windows Precision Touchpads.
  • Single tracks now appear in a standby selection color, under certain circumstances. Until now, only multiple selected tracks were shown with a standby selection color, whereas single tracks were simply shown as unselected. The changes are as follows:
    • when resizing an unselected track in the Arrangement, the track now appears as a standby selection. This is consistent with the behavior in Session View.
    • when selecting one or more tracks with a standby selection, the standby selection is now re-activated, instead of a single track being selected. This applies to both the Session and Arrangement Views.
    • when tabbing between the Session and Arrangement Views, selected tracks now appear in the standby selection color, even if they were just re-colored.
  • On Windows with a HiDPI screen, VST3 plug-ins are now scaled the same way as VST2 plug-ins. Previously they were rendered too small or displayed UI glitches.  
  • On Windows, the cursor that indicates that a breakpoint can be added is now white.
  • Improved the appearance of note sizes in the Clip Overview / Zooming Hot Spot.
  • Rubber-band selection now scales correctly on hi-dpi screens.
  • The status bar text shown after selecting MIDI notes in the editor has been improved, so that if only one note is selected, it does not display that as a range anymore.

Max for Live improvements

  • Scale intervals can now be observed from Max for Live.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • Introduced "Delay", a new audio effect device for Live. Delay combines the functionalities of the Simple Delay and Ping Pong Delay devices into one. Additionally, it provides the ability to modulate delay time and filter frequency with a built-in LFO.
  • When opening an older Set or Preset which used Simple or Ping Pong Delay, an upgrade button will appear on the Delay device used in place of the original devices. This is to preserve the previously used device free time range: upgrading the device (pressing the button) will only affect the sound of the set / preset if the 'free time' parameter was either mapped to a macro or to a Max for Live device.
  • Introduced Channel EQ. Channel EQ is a three-band equalizer focused on immediacy. It comes with a highpass filter toggle, a low shelf filter, a semi-parametric mid band and a hybrid high shelf/lowpass filter.
  • It is now possible to drop an audio file onto Wavetable's Oscillator tabs, and use it as a wavetable. By default, the wavetable is processed and smoothed. However, Wavetable also provides a "Raw" decoding option. Please note that at this time encoded files (e.g. *.mp3) are not supported, unless they have already been decoded by Live.
  • Added a Loop Mode chooser, Loop Time slider and Beat Sync/Rate slider to the Volume Envelope in Simpler's Classic Playback Mode. Previously, these controls were exclusively available in Sampler.
  • In the Echo device, the Dry/Wet knob now features a context menu to switch to "Equal-Loudness". When enabled, a 50/50 mix will sound equally loud for most signals, instead of being attenuated. In the Delay device, the maximum delay time offset is now consistent with the Simple Delay and Ping Pong Delay devices.
  • Added a new "Rand" modulation source to Wavetable's MIDI tab, which generates a random value when a note starts.
  • When mapping a parameter to an empty macro, the macro assumes the full range of the target parameter, and will be set to the current value of the target parameter.

Push 2

  • New scales are visible on Push, and some existing scales have been renamed.

Setup

  • Improved the performance of drag and undo commands on interactions with automation envelopes.
  • Removed the MME/DirectMusic switch in the Link/MIDI Preferences tab on Windows.

VST 3

  • Introduced support for VST3.
  • All plugin settings now appear in a dedicated "Plugins" tab in the Preferences.
  • Introduced system folders for VST3 plug-in scanning. Also added a button to the "Plugins" Preferences tab to enable and disable system folders.
  • VST3 plug-ins are now scanned via a separate background process. Plug-ins that crashed during scanning no longer cause Live to crash. In addition, Live will not need to wait for the plug-in scan to finish in order to launch.
  • VST3 plug-in scanning now supports symlinks.
  • For VST3 plug-ins with less than 65 parameters, the parameters are now auto-assigned after instantiation. Also, when copying a VST3 plug-in or loading a Set with VST3 plug-ins, the parameter assignment (and value) is retained.
  • Sidechain routings, Gain and Mix parameters are now displayed in third-party plug-ins in the Device View.
  • Additional audio input and output buses from VST3 plug-ins can be used from track "Audio To" and "Audio From" routing choosers, as with VST2 and AU plug-ins.

Interface Improvements
New Devices and Device Improvements

Arrangement Editing

  • Previously, when unfreezing a track that had frozen tail clips, the clips were still draggable.
  • Breakpoint values would erroneously be displayed behind insert markers.
  • When using the smallest adaptive grid possible (i.e. zooming in until the grid size is displayed as 1/16384 in the lower right corner), moving the insert marker or nudging a selection using the cursor keys would sometimes stop working.

Automation

  • Previously, CC messages received in a track input might erroneously affect a clip that is playing back on a different track, even if that track was not armed. Also, Live no longer filters out "duplicate" CC messages.
  • Automation segments and breakpoints would appear highlighted on frozen tracks, although automation cannot be edited in such cases.
  • In automation envelopes, the automation value display will no longer disappear after opening a context menu and moving the mouse above it.
  • It was erroneously possible to set the insert marker or select time on a frozen automation lane.

File Handling

  • If the template Set was saved showing the Clip View, Live would re-open the Set with the Clip View closed.
  • A crash could occur when loading a new Set after remote-mapping a Macro control in another track.
  • Live Sets could become corrupt after duplicating a clip (or a track containing a clip) and then adding additional notes to one of the clips.

Interface Improvements

  • Creating a looping Arrangement clip containing MIDI notes and zooming out far enough would cause the clip content to suddenly appear as a black block.
  • Previously, when selecting all editable text within a field, a gap would appear to the left side of text.
  • The mouse cursor would not change when attempting to resize clips in the Arrangement, if the Session View was playing back a clip on the same track.
  • Fixed a text glitch that occurred when displaying sample time values in Sampler or Simpler.
  • Previously, when Live's interface was zoomed above 100%, text or track headers might be cut off. Additionally, the Reverb device's Reflect and Diffuse parameter texts were cut off. Both bugs have been fixed.
  • Fixed some minor graphic / layout bugs.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • Fixed a bug which prevented Group Tracks from being un-soloed when the Solo switch was mapped.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented existing Macros from connecting when grouping devices within a chain of an existing group device.
  • Live would crash when using the "Delete Device" context menu item, while the device was being renamed.
  • Fixed a number of inconsistencies that would occur when an AU plug-in's parameter list changed, which could potentially leave a Live Set in a partially broken state.

New features and improvements
Bugfixes

New features and improvements

Arrangement Editing

  • Added "Clear All Envelopes" to the context menu of the Clip View’s Envelope Editor.

Automation

  • When hovering over automation, the cursor now indicates that a mouse click would create a new breakpoint.
  • Modulation envelopes of disabled warper parameter envelopes now appear grayed out.
  • The state of the Lock Envelopes switch is now ignored when pasting track content to a frozen track, and when pasting automation. This ensures that clips will sound the same when the track is unfrozen.

Control Surfaces

  • Users of the "Komplete_Kontrol_A" script no longer need to use wrapper Instrument Racks in order to control Komplete Kontrol plug-in instances. Also, the last auto-armed track will no longer remain armed upon the "Komplete_Kontrol_A" and "SL_MkIII" scripts being disconnected.
  • When a Komplete Kontrol A device is connected, it is now automatically selected in the Preferences.

Interface Improvements

  • Improved Live's drawing performance.
  • Previously for macro-mapped parameters, the modulation envelope would appear grayed out. Now, the automation envelope appears grayed out instead, since the modulation still has an effect on the mapped value, whereas the automation has not.
  • Unified the off-grid color indication for the vertical automation guide line and markers in the Arrangement and Detail View.
  • Improved the speed of text rendering on HiDPI/Retina screens.

  • Added minor graphics improvements for device chains.

  • Replaced "Master/Slave" references:
    • "ReWire Master/Slave" is now "ReWire Host/Device"
    • "Tempo Master/Slave" is now "Tempo Leader/Follower"
    • Analog’s Filter 2 "Slave" switch is now called "Follow"

Max for Live

  • Updated the bundled Max application to Max 8.0.2. For a complete list of changes, please see: https://cycling74.com/forums/max-8-0-2-released
  • Updated various info texts and replaced all references to "Max/MSP" with "Max" for consistency.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • Removed a feature which required Shift-clicking to open an AU plug-in editor.

Setup

  • Added support for ASIO drivers with a single mono input channel.
  • Updated the Help View's table of contents and various info texts.
  • Updated some info text translations.
  • Updated translations for various Help View built-in lessons, Table of Contents and Info Texts.

Bugfixes

Arrangement Editing

  • Previously, the Envelope Control Chooser in the Clip View would not reflect Warp Mode's enabled state when switching clips or when clicking the clip's Warp Mode switch.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when zooming to a time selection, deleting a track and zooming back.
  • Previously, the Edit menu's "Cut Time", "Duplicate Time", and "Delete Time" commands would be incorrectly enabled when there was no time selection.
  • A MIDI track would not be monitored during an Arrangement recording, after a clip's playback was stopped on the same track in the Session View.
  • Previously, unwarped samples dragged from the browser on top of other audio clips in the Arrangement would sometimes be arbitrarily shortened.
  • Live could crash when clicking within proximity of an Arrangement locator.

Automation

  • Dragging the automation lane selection start to a negative time would change the selection to a content lane selection.
  • Fixed a crash that would occur when pressing the "+" key to zoom into a MIDI clip's Envelope Editor, after double-clicking in the Clip View and making the Envelope Editor visible by clicking on the Show/Hide Envelopes Box control.
  • Fixed broken clip envelopes created by the step automation feature on Push.
  • When deleted via a parameter's context menu, a clip automation envelope's value line was displayed in the wrong color.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented dragging an automation breakpoint to 1.1.1 under certain circumstances.
  • Previously, splitting and moving an automation envelope's left-most line segment would shift the segment to the right.

Browser

  • When a Collections label was assigned to a project folder, it would appear twice in the respective browser Collection.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented drag-selecting a range of entries in the browser side bar.

Control Surfaces

  • When using Drum Racks, nested devices would still display their visualization after the drum pad was selected in the device navigation area via the top row of buttons, on Push 2. Only the choke group and tuning settings for the drum chain should be visible in that view.
  • Fixed a bug where the message "Parameter... is awaiting pick-up" would sit in the Status Bar indefinitely instead of disappearing after a few seconds.
  • The "Komplete Kontrol A" remote script will now be auto-selected on Windows even when the port name is prepended with a number.
  • Selecting the master track will now move the track bank of the "Komplete_Kontrol_A" script.
  • Fixed two bugs in the Novation SL MkIII script:
    • Deleting all return tracks no longer results in a "hanging" send/return display on the SL MkIII.
    • The pad grid on the SL MkIII no longer sends notes to Live's tracks when there's no Drum Rack available.
    • A crash might occur when undoing inserting (e.g. duplicating) a device that was locked to a script.

File Handling

  • In the File Manager, an Arrangement clip would be displayed multiple times under the same reference file.
  • When video output failed to render, a pop-up would appear with the message "Do you want to delete the rendered audio?", and the rendered audio would always be deleted, regardless of whether "Yes" or "No" was clicked.
  • Previously, Live Sets could become corrupted after a MIDI clip was created by converting audio to MIDI, by pasting an audio clip with a groove that was not present in the new Live Set.
  • Live could crash when using the Manage User Library feature, under certain circumstances.
  • On Windows, if Live fails to overwrite a file during rendering, it will no longer crash. Instead, it will use a different file name.
  • In a scenario where the user selects one or more MIDI tracks without an instrument, opens the Export Audio/Video dialog and selects "Selected Tracks Only", clicking "Export" no longer leads to a hanging progress dialog. Instead, the "Export" button is now grayed out.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when decoding an Ogg Vorbis file with more than two channels. Now, instead of crashing, Live will decode the first two channels as stereo, and ignore the other channels.
  • The File Manager could fail to display anything after exiting the Manage Project tab without saving.

Interface Improvements

  • Users of Apple's Magic Mouse would struggle to delete automation events with a single click.
  • Added a minor UI fix for misaligned controls in plug-in racks in the Device View.
  • Fixed truncated text in Wavetable's Modulation Matrix.

  • On dial controls, the gap now appears where the needle is, instead of the current value point.
  • Previously, the Envelope Control Chooser in the Clip View would remain grayed out when switching from an unwarped audio clip to a MIDI clip. In addition, a crash would occur when deleting a modulation envelope that was initially visible after loading a Live Set.
  • "Added the following changes on Windows, where at least one HiDPI screen is in use:
    • If the pixel density of the current screen changes, VST windows will resize properly. This applies to shown and hidden VST windows.
    • If multiple VST windows are being opened on a non-primary screen, they will be positioned in a cascaded way instead of in a seemingly random fashion. This matches the behavior on the primary screen.
    • The distance of cascaded VST windows' title bars is increased so that the whole title bar is visible.
    • VST windows are positioned consistently when opening HiDPI and non-HiDPI plug-in windows after one another.
    • Fixed a bug which caused text to bleed from the browser into the Info View, as well as other similar glitches, when using the Zoom Display feature.
    • Fixed truncated text in the Saturator and Resonators devices.
    • Fixed a bug which caused drawing to be sluggish on macOS when resizing Arrangement clips in Sets with many automation envelopes, duplicating clips in rapid succession (by holding CMD+D), or quickly repeating other certain actions.
    • On macOS, the color of modifier icons and text in context menus now match.
    • Live would crash when zooming into an unwarped clip in the detail view with the '+' key.
    • Under certain conditions, zooming on certain audio waveforms would cause the Arrangement View to jump around.

Max for Live improvements

  • Changes to root_note and scale_name properties on Push are now observable in Max for Live devices, and changes triggered in Max for Live devices are now correctly relayed to Push.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • Live could crash when loading certain Wavetable presets.
  • Fixed a crash that might occur when the FL Studio VST was running.

ReWire

  • Updated ReWire libraries to version 1.8.7 build 145. This fixes a problem where starting Live on macOS 10.14 Mojave would prompt a request to access Contacts.

Setup

  • Fixed a bug where the list of input/output channel names would be lost if an ASIO device changed its number of inputs or outputs.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred after closing the error dialog informing about an unusable ASIO driver clock signal.
  • On Windows, Live would sometimes crash while shutting down.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Live to trigger security warnings on macOS Mojave (version 10.14).

Setup

Arrangement Editing

  • When a time selection stretches across multiple tracks, ALT+CMD+F (Mac) / ALT+CTRL+F (PC) will apply the "Create Fade" / "Create Crossfade" command to all selected clips.
  • Edit commands for cutting, duplicating and deleting time work regardless of the current Arrangement content selection. These commands are also available if a selection exists exclusively in an automation lane.
  • Added a "Create Fades" command to the context menu of Arrangement tracks.

Automation

  • Added a "Create Fades" command to the context menu of Arrangement tracks.
  • It is now possible to create and reset fades when clip content is selected in Automation Mode. The shortcut for resetting fades is "CMD+ALT+Delete" (Mac) / "CTRL+ALT+Backspace" (PC).
  • Pressing CMD+Delete now deletes the envelope of the selected automation lane in the Arrangement View (or the clip envelope in the Detail View).
  • Added "Clear Envelope" to the automation lane context menu and "Clear All Envelopes" to the Arrangement track header context menu.
  • The horizontal movement of automation breakpoints creates horizontal gaps when dragging clips or nudging content or automation within a time selection.
  • Introduced the "Snap Automation to Grid" menu option. When enabled, automation breakpoints and segments snap to the global grid. When "Snap Automation to Grid" is disabled, the grid snapping modifier works intuitively, and a light blue vertical line indicates when the dragged breakpoint snaps to the next or previous gridline or breakpoint.

Browser

  • Color labels are now stored in the same file system folder as the files they are attached to, which makes it easier to manage browser items and their assigned colors across different Live installations.

Capture

  • Improved the optimal loop detection for clips created with Capture MIDI.

Control Surfaces

  • Introduced Control Surface support for Arturia KeyLab MkII.

Interface Improvements

  • Font rendering is now more crisp at all zoom levels.  
  • Improved the speed at which the Live interface updates.
  • Introduced the Ableton Sans Small font, which is more readable at small sizes. This change generally increases readability of all text in Live.
  • On Windows, Live uses the keyboard's repeat settings to determine the scroll speed of scroll bars.
  • Improve Live's performance at zoom levels other than 100%.
  • On Windows, the automatic HiDPI mode for VST plug-ins is now disabled. To enable HiDPI support for HiDPI-capable plugins, users must toggle the "Auto-Scale Plugin Window" via the plug-in device's context menu.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • On Windows 10 with HiDPI enabled, plug-ins that support DPI-awareness will be displayed at the native resolution instead of being scaled. This means that Live now officially supports HiDPI plug-ins.
  • Wavetable's FM FX Mode is now less CPU-intensive.
  • Increased the contrast of the spectrum in EQ Eight across all Themes.
  • Improved Wavetable's performance when playing simple sounds (e.g. one or two voices).

Setup

  • Live Intro now supports the Complex and Complex Pro warp modes. Additionally, it now supports a maximum of eight audio I/O channels instead of four.
  • Added the Audio I/O and Driver Error Compensation lessons to the Help View.
  • Added Groove Pool info text translations.
  • Added translations for the "Audio IO" lesson in the Help View, and renamed "Capture" to "Capture MIDI" in info texts and the Help View.
  • Added the "Connecting MIDI Controllers" and "Control Surface Reference" lessons to the Help View. Updated the "Creating Manual MIDI Mappings" lesson.
  • Added and updated translations for various Help View lessons.
  • Updated built-in lessons in the Help View.

Arrangement Editing

  • Track content selection would not be restored on redo when the track was converted from audio to MIDI or vice versa during an edit operation.
  • Creating fades on multiple tracks would result in one undo step per fade instead of a single undo step.
  • Zooming by scrolling now works independently from the scroll direction set in the System Preferences (macOS only).
  • Live no longer enforces a minimum length when resizing Arrangement clips. Additionally, fixed the following bugs which occurred when freezing a track containing muted clips:
    • The frozen track would be silent in the area of the frozen clips, even if something should have been audible there.
    • Freeze tail clips could overlap with the muted clips.
  • The message "Warp Marker segment BPM limit reached" would sometimes appear in the status bar when stretching Arrangement clips, even though the limit had not been reached.

  • Live could crash when dragging a clip, if that clip's Master/Slave switch was set to "Master".
  • Autoscrolling will now always occur when dragging the loop marker to the right or the left outside the Arrangement.
  • Parameters that have no effect on the current Warp Mode are now correctly displayed as disabled in the Clip Envelope Control chooser.
  • "Reset Fade" is now applied to all fades in the current time selection. Before, it was only applied when either the fade-in end time or the fade-out start time were within the current time selection.

Automation

  • Deleting a breakpoint by clicking on it would accidentally move the breakpoint instead, when using a graphics tablet.
  • The content selection of automation lanes is now restored after undo and redo operations. Until now, only the content selection of the content lane was restored.
  • Breakpoints can no longer be moved into negative time.
  • Fixed some issues with VST and AU plug-in parameters, particularly where unconfigured parameters were heavily adjusted within the plug-in.
  • Previously, fade handles could be edited using the mouse or keyboard, even after switching to Automation Mode, where the fade handles were not visible.

Browser

  • The Live browser would fail to see files from OneDrive folders.
  • When installing factory packs the contained "Ableton Folder Info" folder would not be hidden until the next startup.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when .amxd files appeared in the Sounds category.

File Handling

  • Fixed a bug where Live would incorrectly use a previous freeze sample instead of producing a new freeze sample after changing a device parameter.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented AU presets from recalling parameters correctly.
  • Live no longer runs out of memory when loading Live sets with large plug-in data (> 500 MB).
  • Fixed a crash that might occur when trying to recover from a crash.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when closing Live while listed samples were selected in the File Manager.

Interface Improvements

  • Live could crash when displaying a modal plug-in dialog.
  • Fixed a visual glitch in the Multiband Dynamics device which caused the frames of the ”T,” ”B” and ”A” buttons to appear broken.
  • Previously when clicking the drop area of the Arrangement, the track highlight would either move back to where the time selection was last, or not move at all.
  • When shutting down Live on Windows, Live's UI would become glitchy in some cases.
  • On Windows 10 with HiDPI enabled, the menu bar now works as expected if the main and second window are on screens with differing pixel densities.
  • Waveform drawing would not work properly at certain zoom levels.
  • On Windows, Live no longer crashes if the file dialog is shown for a long time.
  • Fixed a strange looking grey blob that appeared in the Glue device's VU meter when the display zoom was not at 100%.
  • In MIDI Map Mode, the Status Bar’s "mode” chooser is now wider, to accomodate the text of its options.
  • Live would freeze at startup when running on monitors with refresh rates above 60 Hz.
  • Previously, the text "Drop Clips or Grooves Here" appeared wrapped over two lines in the Groove Pool.
  • Previously, "Show Modulation" would appear in the context menu of an Envelope Editor, if a Max for Live parameter with no modulation was selected in the Clip Envelope Control chooser.
  • In German, the text of the Export and Cancel buttons no longer overflows in the Render dialog.
  • In the browser, the search field now has the right text color in the Dark theme.
  • In the Input/Output Channel Configuration window, labels now have the right text color in the Dark theme.
  • In the Groove Pool, the drop message is no longer split onto two lines.
  • In other places, text that appeared blurry in some buttons is now crisp again.
  • On Windows, if you clicked a separator, the cursor would erroneously change back to a pointing cursor.
  • On Windows, if using a screen with a refresh rate above 60 Hz, Live's UI would not draw smoothly and potentially lock up when loading certain plug-ins.
  • Under certain circumstances, a Live Set could become corrupt due to an invalid Group Track structure.
  • On Windows, Live could crash while launching in cases where it failed to position itself on the screen.
  • The playhead was no longer shown in the browser's Preview Tab.
  • Added further improvements to the UI performance on Windows in cases where Live runs on monitors with a high refresh rate.

Max for Live

  • Adjusted the selection frame in device groups and corrected inconsistencies in the look and behaviour of the Sampler device.
  • A track created by dropping a single clip into the Session or Arrangement View's Drop Area now inherits the clip color instead of the source track color. When dropping several clips at the same time, the new track still inherits the source track color, as before.
  • Improved the playhead smoothness on Windows.

Max for Live improvements

  • Max 7 license owners can edit gen~ patchers in Live 10's Max for Live editor.
  • Fixed permissions issues on macOS for non-Admin accounts.

    • scrubbing in the Arrangement View.
    • restarting transport using "Shift" + "Space" in the Arrangement View.
    • scrubbing in the Detail View of an Arrangement clip.
    • scrubbing in the Detail View of a Session clip.
  • Previously, there was a possibility that all MIDI notes in a key could disappear when stretched to an extremely small size (e.g., when using the ":2" button). This has now changed, and further stretching is not possible once notes reach a very small size.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • Filter curve visualisations in Wavetable are updated in real time in cases where e.g. an LFO or Envelope is mapped to the filter cutoff frequency.

Setup

  • On Windows, Live now cleanly shuts down when a user logs out, shuts the computer down or reboots it. It also displays a message explaining why it is preventing the computer shutting down, giving the user 30 seconds to abort shutting down and save the Set.
  • Updated various info texts.
  • Added translations for the following lessons: "A Tour of Live", "Recording Audio", "Creating Beats", "Playing Software Instruments" and "Max for Live Devices".
  • When re-opening Live, the state of the Computer MIDI Keyboard on/off toggle is now remembered.

Arrangement Editing

  • Previously, when freezing a track, the hatched pattern that indicates frozen tails would also erroneously appear in the track's clip headers.
  • Previously, start and end markers for unwarped audio clips were erroneously quantized to the grid.
  • Creating a warp marker could trigger scrolling of the selected clip under certain circumstances.
  • Previously it was not possible to adjust the loop start position in unwarped audio clips without quantization.
  • A crash would occur when editing the crossfade between two very short clips.
  • Fixed a crash when removing a device that showed a parameter in an additional automation lane while the mouse is hovering over the parameter's automation.
  • The "Select Track Content" context menu command would not work on multiple selected tracks.

Automation

  • Previously, when copying an Arrangement clip with existing automation to another track, automation would not be copied even if the target track and source track contained identical devices. Also, if a track is created by dragging a clip into the Arrangement drop area, all automation is now copied over and set to the the correct time.
  • Copying and pasting automation might lead to unexpected results, if the copied selection extended across multiple tracks.
  • The Show/Hide Additional Automation Lanes button is now always visible when unfolding a track that has been folded by resizing.
  • When pressing the Option (Alt) key and clicking on a track's Unfold Track button, the position of that track does not change.
  • MIDI Ctrl or Mixer modulation envelopes would be lost when dragging a clip from Arrangement to Session View.
  • Live could crash on Windows when clicking on a breakpoint while holding the grid modifier.
  • Positioning fade handles with arrow keys was not working correctly.

Browser

  • AU plug-in default presets (.aupreset files) were no longer shown in the Live 10 browser.
  • Files from the "Current Project" label might fail to appear in the browser under certain circumstances.
  • File types unsupported in certain editions and when run as a ReWire slave (e.g., .amxd and .aupresets) erroneously appeared in Live's browser.
  • .M4A audio files would not show up in Live's browser anymore.

Control Surfaces

  • Added bank definitions to Wavetable for third-party control surfaces.

File Handling

  • Previously it was not possible to delete files or directories with names containing slashes.
  • Previously, toggling Automation Mode would create an Undo step.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred if a Live Set contained "{}" characters in its name.
  • Plug-ins and Sets that are saved in directory junctions on Windows work again.
  • Live would crash when launching the program by double-clicking a Live Set, in cases where the Live Set was corrupted.
  • Fixed a problem which might prevent AU presets from recalling correctly.

Interface Improvements

  • Improved CPU usage by reducing the amount of graphic updates for the Detail View.
  • Live's window contents no longer briefly flicker after changes to a hardware display setup.
  • Depending on the language used in Live, the progress of the crash recovery wasn't visible on the splash screen because the text was clipped.
  • Improved the drag and drop handling on HiDPI screens. Previously, dragging a file from Explorer into Live would show the file at the wrong position in Live (Windows only).
  • Fixed a bug which caused text to overflow on top of the frame containing the browser's search field.
  • Fixed a bug which caused clips to be incorrectly colored when readded to a Live Set, if an .asd file was previously created.
  • On Windows 10 with HiDPI displays, dragging and dropping within Live, into Live, and within scaled plug-ins now works as expected. Please note that dragging and dropping from Live to other programs or to HiDPI-aware plug-ins may still cause issues when HiDPI Mode is active.
  • Fixed a bug where sequences of visually short borderless notes would be nearly invisible if crowded into overlapping pixel areas.
  • Fixed a minor visual issue affecting corners in grouped devices.
  • Fixed a minor inconsistency in the height of notes in Arrangement clips and clip previews.
  • Upon loading a Live Set, the clip envelope parameter selection would not be restored in the Detail View.
  • When double-clicking and dragging a slider control, the mouse cursor would not be hidden as expected, if Pen Tablet Mode was disabled.
  • Meters in Live's mixer would appear as stuck when loading a Set.
  • Improved UI performance on Windows when resizing Arrangement clips.
  • Fixed a bug which incorrectly applied bold formatting to chunks of text in the Help View.
  • If HiDPI was enabled on a Windows 10 machine, the preview of a dragged object (either dragged within Live or into Live) would appear offset.
  • If multiple audio clips were selected, changing a selection in the Detail View would create a wrong time selection in the Arrangement.
  • Removed inconsistent extra spacing from the context menu entry "Add Lane for Each Automated Envelope" in automation lane headers.
  • Previously, some radio buttons in certain devices displayed unreadable text.
  • On Windows with a HiDPI screen and HiDPI Mode enabled, it is once again possible to drag a file from Live into Explorer.
  • On Windows, dropping files from Addictive Drums 2 into Live works again.
  • When renaming Arrangement clips, the wrong mouse cursor would be displayed, making it difficult to insert the cursor at the desired position.
  • The grayed out text  "Open Groove Pool..." in a clip's Groove Pool dropdown menu is now more visible in the Dark theme.
  • On Windows, if a plug-in showed a modal dialog, the main window could not be closed while that dialog was being shown.
  • When running Windows on a computer with a 4K screen and HiDPI Mode enabled, Live's UI would temporarily stop updating if the mouse hovered over an instance of the Spectrum device's breakout view.
  • On Windows 10 (version 1803) with HiDPI enabled, drag and drop now works as expected between Live, plug-ins and Max and the Explorer.
  • Horizontal sliders are now black instead of white in the Dark Theme (this is particularly noticeable for plug-in device parameters in the Detail View).

Max for Live

  • Added the following changes to Max for Live:
    • File copying is now faster (this affects building standalones and Max For Live devices).
    • Restored Hints functionality.
    • live.gain~: height no longer changes when changing font.
    • Live could crash when deleting a Max for Live device which had a fullscreen window.
    • Live's main window can no longer obscure all other windows when using Max for Live devices.
    • Previously, Live might fail to access MIDI ports if the Max editor was open in the background at program launch.
    • The Max patcher window is now correctly sized on Windows.
    • Text in message boxes would sometimes appear cut off.
    • Various nodesnames attribute improvements.
    • Fixed issues with adding new objects to presentation mode.
    • poly~: fixed a crash which might occur when muting messages in nested poly~ patchers.
    • Seq object now properly records MIDI.
    • umenu and live.menu would block the Max scheduler while the drop-down list was displayed.
    • Firewall permissions dialog is appropriately suppressed in the Max for Live editor.
    • HiDPI: improved drawing when changing Windows display settings.
    • JS: sketch methods are no longer called on non-UI js objects in js_calljsfun().
    • Max Authorization Window: improved wording and user options.
    • mgraphics: deletion of temp file is now ensured when reading an .svg from a Max for Live device.
  • Performing an Undo after Macro-mapping a Max parameter would leave that parameter unmapped and unusable.
  • Live would crash when dragging a Live device on top of a Max for Live device.
  • Mapping Device Rack Macros to a live.remote would break under certain conditions after reloading the Set.

MIDI editor

  • When folding an empty MIDI clip in a Drum Rack that contained at least one chain receiving all notes, the clip would fold to that chain only, whereas now the clip will not fold at all. Also, when switching between audio clips while a warp marker was selected, the Seg. BPM box would erroneously show the tempo of the previously selected marker. This would also lead to jumps in the displayed waveform visualization when the tempo was adjusted.
  • The Note Ruler in the MIDI Editor can now be double-clicked to vertically zoom to all used key tracks. In a multi-clip editing scenario, notes of all clips are taken into account, whereas previously only the notes of the foreground clip were considered. Additionally, fixed a bug which prevented the vertical zoom state from initializing correctly under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a few minor bugs in the MIDI Editor:
    • when selecting one out of many selected notes, the selection would not revert to the selected note
    • when opening the context menu while hovering over a background note, and then clicking outside of the context menu, the background note would remain in a hovered state
    • when hovering over a background note, it was possible to highlight a momentarily invisible foreground note

Multi Clip Editing

  • Previously, the adaptive grid size of a newly created clip could sometimes be incorrectly calculated when multi-clip editing.

Navigation

  • Tracks in the Arrangement View would scroll out of view completely when toggling Automation Mode if the highlighted track was not visible.
  • When resizing an Arrangement track, only tracks whose header is selected will be resized. Previously, a track might be erroneously resized if a content selection existed on that track.
  • When scrolling up and down in the Arrangement View using a mousewheel, the view would only move in very small increments.
  • Previously, when extracting a Drum Rack chain to a new track, the zoom level and time selection were erroneously applied to the newly created clip.
  • When undoing the deletion of a note while in Arrangement View, the Clip View zoom level unexpectedly zoomed in to that note.
  • Previously, scrolling the Arrangement's mixer section with a mousewheel was not possible.
  • Previously, the time selection status display would not get updated when selecting a clip in the Arrangement.
  • The grid modifier would not toggle the grid when changing the time selection or moving the insert marker with the arrow keys.
  • Dragging a device over a Session return track header that overlapped a group device chain header would cause erratic scrolling in Session View.
  • On macOS, grid snapping would erroneously toggle when setting the Arrangement loop start/stop marker position by clicking inside the Arrangement View scrub area while holding the [CMD] modifier.

Nested Groups

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when duplicating a nested Group Track containing a plug-in with an active modal dialog while Live's second window was open.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • The Arpeggiator device could lead to crashes under certain circumstances.
  • AU plug-in parameters might behave erratically when being controlled with the mouse, under certain circumstances.
  • It was erroneously possible to tweak parameters in the expanded view of certain devices, even if the track was frozen.
  • Under certain circumstances, some Wavetable and Echo parameters would not respond smoothly.

New Devices and Device Improvements

Arrangement Editing

  • The "Shift" key is the new global fine-tune modifier for editing breakpoint values on Mac and Windows.
  • It is now possible to copy, paste, duplicate and nudge a time selection that spans across automation lanes in multiple tracks.
  • When an Arrangement selection resides on an automation lane, the text for nudging changes from "Nudge Clip(s)" to  "Nudge Envelope(s)".
  • While dragging MIDI clips, notes are drawn in the range of the target track. This enables seeing the content of the clips in the context of the target track.

Automation

  • It is now possible to extend a selection from an automation lane to the content lane of the same track.
  • Introduced a "micro-snapping" behavior: clips, loop markers and warp markers snap to a grid line even if the grid is off, if the distance to that grid line does not exceed 1 pixel.

Browser

  • It is now possible to add Factory Packs content to Collections.

Capture

  • Capture can now change the Set tempo, if a preferable interpretation is found.
  • When overdubbing a loop in the Session View, Capture will choose the loop iteration with a significant amount of new material in it.

File Handling

  • It is only possible to export video if "Encode PCM" is enabled in the Export Audio/Video dialog.

Interface Improvements

  • On Windows, HiDPI is now enabled by default for new users of Live 10. Additionally, VST plug-ins previously affected by UI issues on HiDPI screens now work as expected, when the default scaled mode is active. Please note that certain HiDPI plug-ins may require manually disabled scaling (via the context menu) in order to use them on HiDPI screens.
  • On Windows, it is now possible to decide on a per plug-in basis how its GUI is scaled on HiDPI screens. This is achieved via a context menu by right-clicking on the plug-in device either in the browser or in the Detail View. By default, provided HiDPI is enabled in the Preferences, the plug-in window is scaled so that it has the proper size on HiDPI screens. If the setting is disabled, the plug-in will appear much smaller in size, but this helps in cases where the mouse would behave erratically when trying to interact with the plug-in UI.
  • Improved the handling of graphics rendering in Live, in order to reduce the CPU and GPU load of Live on macOS.
  • Improved the zoom cursor design to increase its visibility with all Themes.
  • When dropping a sample on a Drum Rack pad, its border now appears in black or white (instead of orange), depending on the Theme in use.
  • Improved the 'Live 9' Theme.
  • When editing multiple clips while zoomed out of the MIDI Editor, notes are now displayed in a shaded version of their clip color, so it is easier to identify to which clip they belong to. The color of the little ticks that indicate a boundary between two very small notes has also been adjusted to improve readability. Finally, in order to make high-precision note editing easier, notes are no longer displayed as selected when they are being controlled by the mouse (e.g. while being dragged).
  • Level meter ticks now match the color of the dB labels beside them.
  • Changed the width of tracks created by dragging and dropping something into Live.
  • Updated the Mid-Dark and Dark Themes.
  • Added minor color changes to Automation Mode.
  • Changed parameter values for toggles from lowercase "on/off" to title case "On/Off".
  • The Solo buttons have been updated to fit the new font.
  • Improved the appearance of the Solo button icons.
  • "Show Preset Name" defaults to "On" for all devices. Previously, this was only the case for some devices like Instrument / Effect Racks and sample-based instruments, while most of the others defaulted to "Off", so that only the device name was shown.
  • Minor improvements to the title bar of the multi-clip editor.
  • Updated Ableton Sans Font: enabled use of additional diacritical marks, and correctly positioned them at the height of lower-case characters.
  • Changed the fill color of expand/collapse arrows in the File Manager, and everywhere else they appear.
  • Increased the opacity of the clip content in Automation Mode.
  • A few more Control Bar items are now hoverable: Time Signature, Arrangement Position, Loop Start/Punch-In Point, and Loop/Punch-Region Length.

Link

  • It is now possible to control Live's play / stop transport controls via Link.

Max for Live improvements

  • SysEx messages are now passed through a MIDI track's device chain.
  • Live support exchanging SysEx messages with Max.
  • Updated the Max for Live Drum Synths and Control Devices UI. These now follow Theme colors and active / inactive states.
  • Introduced a new MIDI Monitor device to Max for Live.
  • LFO, Envelope Follower, Shaper and Envelope devices in Max for Live now can be mapped to multiple sources.

Mixing

  • The number of audio-in buses for plug-ins has been increased to a total of eight inputs.

Multi Clip Editing

  • Improved the behavior of the Fold button when editing multiple clips at the same time.
  • Scrubbing in MIDI Clips now works when multi-clip editing:
    - Scrubbing in the Session View will play the clips as if they had been started at the same time, i.e. as they are being displayed. If the current selection contains several clips from the same track, clips will be chosen from each track in the following order: foreground clip, playing clip, triggered clip, first clip of the track. Scrubbing is currently disabled if one of the clips is frozen.

    Note: the trigger line that shows where the clip(s) would start during the trigger state does not yet support multiple clips. This will be addressed in the future.

    Additional bugfixes:
    - Previously, the freeze layer on top of the scrub area was not shown for frozen MIDI clips.  
    - The multi-clip playhead was not shown when triggering a playing clip.  
    - Scrubbing before the first event (sample/note/loop) sometimes started with an offset.  
    - The scrub start position of a Session clip failed to respect the song time signature at the current song position.
  • Improved the behavior of the Fold button when editing multiple clips at the same time.

Navigation

  • Audio tracks will be automatically named by the clips that are added onto them.  If there is a single session or arrangement clip in a track, then the name of the track will follow the name of that clip. If more clips are added, the track will stick with whatever name it got when there was only one clip. If all clips are removed from the track, the track will return to its default name.
  • Refined zooming behavior in the Arrangement, to avoid scenarios where the view would jump to the middle of a selection if only one edge of the selection was currently visible.
  • Follow is now paused while breakpoints are created.
  • Mousewheel zoom events now can resize all the highlighted content tracks in the Arrangement View. Previously, this exclusively worked for tracks whose headers where selected.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • When loading a short sample into an empty Simpler instance, Warp and Loop are now deactivated. Additionally, when replacing a sample already loaded into Simpler, the new sample will retain all the Warp and Loop settings.
  • Added performance improvements to Wavetable and Echo.
  • Real-time modulation signals are now visible at the top of Wavetable's Modulation Matrix.
  • Reduced the memory footprint of Wavetable. Also reduced occurrences of clicks in the audio when stealing voices.
  • Improved the performance of Unison Amount, Envelope Time and Glide modulation in Wavetable.
  • Echo's and Wavetable's random LFOs look slightly different in the LFO display.
  • Macro-mapped controls in Wavetable now appear in the Modulation Matrix.
  • Improved Wavetable's LFO display to make the visualization smoother and more consistent.
  • Wavetable's Modulation Matrix headers are now clickable, allowing to jump to the respective modulation source panel.

Setup

  • Live no longer forces macOS to use the discrete graphics card in Multi-GPU machines such as MacBook Pros. This reduces energy use and heat, and improves battery life.
  • Updated the ‘Creating Beats’ lesson in Live’s Help View.
  • Updated the ‘Playing Software Instruments’ lesson in Live’s Help View.
  • The 'Tour of Live' and 'Recording Audio' Live Lessons have been updated and are now available in the Help View again.
  • Added a Max for Live Devices lesson in the Help View.

  • Copying, pasting and nudging a non-contiguous selection in automation lanes for multiple tracks could lead to erratic results.
  • Fixed the shape of the right-most automation segment's active mouse area.
  • On Windows, automation curve editing is now only possible if the modifier was already pressed at the time of the mouse-down, to avoid disabling the grid instead.
  • When moving the fade-in end past the fade-out start and then back within the same mouse gesture, the fade-out start would not be restored to its prior length.
  • Moving the fade-in start could affect the fade-out start even though they were not touching.
  • An unexpected fade-in would erroneously appear after removing a crossfade from two crossfading clips.
  • Unwanted time signature automation would be created when duplicating time, if the time selection was not aligned to bar boundaries.
  • The Automation Mode "A" shortcut key toggle was not mentioned in the respective menu entry.
  • A wrong grid quantization was applied when creating breakpoints in proximity of a breakpoint segment while the grid was set to "Off".
  • Added various improvements for adding and editing automation breakpoints.

  • When selecting the automation lane in a nested track, the Group Track's automation lane would erroneously retain the selection, if this previously existed.
  • It is now possible to drag an automation lane time selection to the content lane of any track. Previously, this was restricted to the same track.

Browser

  • When one of the the Packs folders was favored, browsing its sub-folders via Collections might display the wrong content.
  • It was erroneously possible to activate the "RAW" button for previewing MIDI Clips, which would then lead to a crash.
  • Fixed a crash which would occur when applying a Groove to a MIDI clip, if the Groove was added to one of the Collections labels.
  • Live would crash when trying to relocate a missing user folder in the browser, if the user folder was the root of a drive.
  • When selecting an audio file in the browser, the wrong file would be previewed if a sample with the same name was previously selected.
  • Using CMD+F (OS X) or CTRL+F(WIN) would not revert the focus to the search field under certain circumstances.
  • Folders listed under Collections labels could exclusively be sorted by name.
  • The browser's Preview switch would not be triggered when navigating via Page Up/Down keys.
  • The browser color labels would not update correctly in some situations.
  • When displaying the second browser column, this appeared empty until its label was clicked once.

Capture

  • When overdubbing in Session View, only one loop iteration is created before the new captured material.

Control Surfaces

  • A bug prevented Launchpad MK2's Mixer Mode from functioning.

File Handling

  • Live would crash when restoring a Live Set after a crash, in cases where the Live set had been saved after undoing a manoeuvre.
  • A crash would occur when adding a folder to Places, if the folder name contained an emoji character. Additionally, Live could not open Live Sets if their name contained UTF-8 characters.
  • Under certain circumstances, recovering a Live Set after a crash was not possible.
  • Live could crash when pasting text into a clip/track renaming field, if the text contained composite characters.

  • When undoing an action after Saving a set, saving the Set again was not possible.
  • Increased the preloaded sample file regions for warped samples in Simpler, in order to prevent sporadic drop-outs.
  • The Undo history would be compromised in cases where the Max installation could not be found, or Max could not be started. Furthermore, Live would endlessly attempt to load referenced patches, when Max was not available.

Interface Improvements

  • It was not possible to close plug-in windows via the "ESC" key.
  • Solved an issue where drop-down menus might appear misplaced on Windows, in multi-monitor configurations.
  • Items in the Global Quantization drop-down menu would not be highlighted when hovering with the mouse.
  • Improved the handling of multiple program windows on Windows. Previously, Live occasionally prevented bringing other programs to the foreground.
  • Improved the responsiveness of interactions in the Arrangement UI (e.g. resizing clips).
  • In the Session View, clip envelope modulation was displayed in the wrong color.
  • FIxed a bug which, under certain circumstances, might cause certain UI elements to disappear.
  • Adjusted a visual inconsistency in the gap between the meters and devices.

  • The height of default MIDI and audio tracks and tracks created by dropping devices is now the same.
  • Added minor visual improvements to the Mapping Browser.
  • Fixed an undesired change in the UI of the Loop Position and Loop Length fields in the MIDI Note Editor. Also, narrowed the hover frame around the Time Signature fields in the Control Bar by 1 pixel
  • When Live was running on OS X 10.11 and 10.12, graphic artifacts might occur in conjunction with certain hardware configurations.
  • The background color of the "Arrangement Position" field in the Control Bar was displayed incorrectly when Link or the Metronome count-in were enabled.

Multi Clip Editing

  • Live would crash when a user attempted to paste a MIDI clip in an audio track's clip slot.
  • When multi-clip editing, it was erroneously possible to select and edit notes in a frozen background clip.

Navigation

  • When renaming an item in Live, the cursor would end in the wrong position if the text was selected and one of the arrow keys was pressed.
  • Auto-zoom no longer occurs in the Detail View when moving the clip loop using the arrow keys.
  • Follow is temporarily disabled during scrubbing. This also fixes a bug where, if Follow was active, changing the clip's play position might lead to unexpected results.
  • Follow would not be paused when adjusting fade handles.
  • After a user interaction paused Follow, it was necessary to click the Follow button twice in order to re-enable it.
  • Live could crash when using CMD+Option+drag (OS X) or CTRL+ALT+drag (WIN) to scroll Arrangement, if the Arrangement was completely zoomed out.
  • Live would crash when dragging an Arrangement MIDI clip on a Group Track, return track or the Master track.

Nested Groups

  • Moving Arrangement clips in folded Group Tracks could lead to a crash.
  • Live would crash when a Group Track was duplicated, if it contained a VST plug-in which opens a dialog whenever duplicated (e.g., Kontakt 5).
  • Dragging older uncolored Sets from the browser into an existing Session might lead to a crash.
  • Coping and pasting multiple clips at once could lead to unexpected results if some of the clips originated from nested Group Tracks.
  • In some cases, pasted clips would end up in the wrong target track, if the copied selection was across nested Group Tracks.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • Live would crash when moving or grouping a track containing Wavetable, if Push 2 was in use and Device Mode was displayed.
  • The Pulse Width LFO label was not visible in the Analog device's display.
  • The LFO curve was grayed out in Wavetabe or Echo, when one of its parameters was macro-mapped or mapped to a Max for Live Control Device such as LFO. In addition, fixed a crash caused by Wavetable's LFO visualization on Push 2.
  • Moving parameters in a device could lead to some tiny noise bursts if the device was processed by Drum Buss.
  • The text in the Reverb device's Decay Time field would not fit in some cases.
  • Improved the readability of buttons in Simpler's LCD, when the Dark Theme is in use.
  • Audio artefacts would affect Wavetable when modulating its parameters via Aftertouch or Mod Wheel.
  • Previously, it was not possible to map Wavetable parameters to Macros from the device's expanded view.
  • In Wavetable's Matrix and MIDI tabs, the Pitch modulation is now displayed in semitones.
  • Wavetable now supports sustain pedals.
  • Added various UI improvements to Wavetable.
  • Under certain circumstances, the Wavetable's Filter Drive slider would have no effect. Addtionally, Wavetable's 'Glide' parameter would not work as expected.

Setup

  • Fixed some minor ypos in the ‘Tour of Live’ Help View lesson.
  • On macOS, the character accent menu might appear when playing MIDI via the computer keyboard. Additionally, when using a Japanese input method, the computer MIDI keyboard would not work.
  • After changing the language in the Preferences and changing it back to the initial language, Live would revert to the first language chosen upon program launch, instead of the last language chosen.
  • Added a debug option to Live 10 which allows restricting the maximum number of real-time audio threads when Live is running in ReWire slave mode, to prevent performance issues when Live is running as ReWire slave with certain DAWs on Windows, if a CPU with 16 or more cores is in use. This can be enabled via the following debug option in the Options.txt for Live: 'ReWireSlaveModeMaxAudioThreads=0'. This will force Live to run its audio engine in single-threaded mode when running as a ReWire slave. If Live is running standalone (i.e. as ReWire master), the number of threads will not be limited, so performance in standalone mode shouldn't be affected by this option.
  • The computer MIDI keyboard would not work on macOS when a plug-in window had the focus.
  • Fixed a regression which caused number input boxes to steal all keyboard input (once touched), and thus preventing the MIDI keyboard, normal single letter shortcuts, etc. to work. Numbers typed into number input boxes would not overwrite existing values, but only insert new digits, and it was possible to edit unsupported characters into number boxes.
  • Fixed minor typos in info text translations.
  • Updated various info texts.
  • A memory leak might occur when certain previously available plug-ins were not allowed to launch (e.g., due to a missing authorization).
  • An unusually high CPU usage would occur if a Live Set made use of several plug-ins whose parameters were configured in Live.
  • The name of the undo action when importing MIDI and audio files was wrong. Additionally, it is now possible to import MIDI and audio files when the selection is on an automation lane.

Push Note Layouts

Push

  • If a routing target or channel had unicode characters in its name, the routing behavior might malfunction on Push 2.
  • The routing position chooser on Push 2 would not indicate the correct position.
  • Deleting a track in a nested Group Track from Push would not work under certain circumstances.
  • It was not possible to add a track with Push, if the currently selected track was frozen.
  • Occasionally, it was not possible to leave note settings or step automation modes on Push 2.
  • It was not possible to delete a device from a track containing an Instrument / Drum Rack, if one of the Rack's chains was selected from the inline chains in Session View.

Push Device Visualization

  • Wavetable's Pitch parameter would not display as automated on Push. Additionally, it was not possible to step-automate the Semi parameter from Push.
  • The Push display process would use an unusual high amount of CPU when idling, which could occasionally lead to the laptop fan to kick in as soon as Push 2 initialized.
  • When switching from Filter 1 to Filter 2 in Wavetable's Filter bank from Push 2, Filter 1's filter circuit would still be shown if the highpass filter type was selected.
  • Previously on Push 2, the LFO Rate in Wavetable's Modulation Matrix would only appear when the LFO Sync Switch was set to Sync.
  • Under certain circumstances, a device might erroneously appear disabled on Push 2.
  • It was previously not possible to reset Wavetable's Oscillator Transpose parameters to their default value by holding the Delete button and tapping the encoder on Push 2.
  • Under certain conditions, it was difficult to adjust Simpler's start/end markers when zoomed in completely on Push 2.
  • It was not possible to reset Wavetable's modulation amounts from Push.

Push MIDI Clip Mode

  • Live would crash when quickly moving a MIDI clip's Loop Position and Loop Length in Push 2's Clip Mode.
  • Note Settings view was exited when switching between Device, Mix and Clip Modes on Push 1 and 2.
  • When a clip's loop position was changed from Push, the change was not reflected in Live's UI.
  • While in Clip Mode on Push 2, moving a MIDI clip's loop position or end marker would zoom out completely, when previously zoomed in.
  • Notes in a track containing a Drum Rack were displayed in the wrong color on Push 2's display.
  • On Push 2, Clip Mode's zoom overview occasionally did not include the entire region, and the playhead would fail to appear when an audio clip contained a section without any sample content.

Push Note Layouts

  • The "Accent" button was not available in the 64 Pads layout on Push 1 and 2.
  • It was not possible to use the pads to set the note length for all notes in a step in the Melodic Sequencer + 32 Notes layout on Push 1 and 2.
  • It was not possible to delete the notes of a sequencer page in Slicing Mode on Push 1 and 2.
  • It was not possible to use the Up button in the 1/4 note resolution on Push 2.
  • Accent' wasn't available for the Melodic Sequencer + 32 Notes layout on Push1 and 2.
  • The sequencer or loop selector pads would erroneously send mono-aftertouch (or poly pressure) messages.

10.0 リリースノート

Arrangement Editing

  • Warped Arrangement audio clips can now be stretched by holding down Shift while dragging their border.
  • It is now possible to move Arrangement clips within a time selection using the arrow left/right keys. To toggle grid snapping, hold down the "CMD" (Mac) / "Alt" (PC) modifier key.
  • It is now possible to slide the contents of an Arrangement clip within the clip's boundaries, by holding "Alt+Shift" (Mac) / "Ctrl+Shift" (PC) and dragging the clip's track display area. To toggle grid snapping, hold down the "CMD" (Mac) / "Alt" (PC) modifier key.
  • In the Arrangement, the "Reverse" command can now be performed on a time selection via the new "R" shortcut key. Also fixed a bug related to reversing samples.
  • When using Reverse on a partially-selected clip in Arrangement, only the selected part is reversed.
  • It is now possible to deactivate, reverse and crop selected material within a time selection on an automation lane.
  • The "Activate/Deactivate clip(s)" command now only (de)activates the selected portion of Arrangement clips. Previously, the entire clip would be (de)activated, even if only part of it was selected.
  • Arrangement clips can now be moved by dragging the upper half of the clip content area. The mouse cursor changes to a hand to indicate the clip's draggable area, where time selections can also be made via a single-click.
  • The Edit menu's Loop Selection can now be toggled by pressing "CMD+L" (Mac) / "CTRL+L". (PC). Previously, the shortcut could only enable the Arrangement Loop, but not disable it.
  • It is now possible to enable MIDI note chasing via the "Chase MIDI Notes" command in the Options menu.
  • It is possible to import an audio or MIDI file via the ‘Create’ menu. Depending on the track type, this command is named “Import MIDI File…” or “Import Audio File”. The file will be inserted either where at the Insert Marker position (Arrangement View) or in the currently selected empty clip slot (Session View).
  • Double-clicking on a MIDI track in Arrangement View now creates a new MIDI clip.
  • MIDI and Key mappings can now be assigned to the Lock Envelopes switch.

Automation

  • Implemented a global automation mode. In the Arrangement, the visibility of all automation lanes is now toggled via the Automation Mode button or the "A" key. When the automation lanes are visible, the content lanes are minimized to the height of the clip headers.
  • Fades have been removed from the Fades/Devices chooser in the Arrangement. Clip fades are now always available in the content lane, if the track is at least three units tall.
  • It is now possible to split and consolidate material in a time selection also when the selection exists in an automation lane.
  • It is now possible to create automation breakpoints by double-clicking anywhere in an envelope view/automation lane. In the Arrangement, this means that MIDI clips can only be created by double-clicking in the content lane.
  • When moving multiple segments within a time selection, snapping aligns at left or the right of the time selection, depending on which side of the time selection you start dragging. A similar logic is also applied to single segments. Additionally, when hovering near segments the value for the aligned events is now shown. The automation value at the border of a time selection is also shown, regardless if a breakpoint exists, when hovering in proximity of a segment.
  • While creating an automation breakpoint in a time selection, the time selection disappears, which enables moving the newly-created breakpoint.
  • When dragging automation breakpoints or segments, they now snap to existing breakpoint times. The "Shift" modifier is no longer required for moving automation segments past existing breakpoints. When the grid is disabled, automation breakpoints now snap to breakpoint times and grid times if they are one pixel away.
  • For breakpoints grabbed by the mouse, automation values are now displayed when hovering over a breakpoint, or dragging any of the following: an automation segment, a time selection automation segment, or multiple breakpoints in a time selection.
  • It is now possible to move automation segments horizontally.
  • When breakpoints are created close to a grid line, they now automatically snap to the grid.
  • A vertical editing helper line now appears when moving breakpoints in the Arrangement View or Detail View.
  • Breakpoints are now quantized when they are moved.
  • Introduced fade edge handles in the Arrangement, which allow users to change the duration of a fade in (via the "Fade In Start Handle") and fade out (via the "Fade Out End Handle") without affecting the fade peaks. However, a fade edge cannot move beyond the the fade peak. To do this, the clip start/end must be used to increase the size of that clip.
  • Holding "ALT" while resizing one track now resizes all tracks in the current view.

Browser

  • It is now possible to display and search for uninstalled Packs within the browser, and install them from there.
  • The Packs sidebar label now shows updates made to Packs. Users can now download and install these updates.
  • After restarting Live, previously downloaded Packs are now ready for installation, and partially-downloaded Packs can now resume downloading (unless Live was restarted on a metered internet connection).
  • Introduced the Colors feature in Live’s browser, which enables tagging browser items with a choice of seven colors. Colors can be assigned to items via context menu entries, or using the number keys (1-7 for assigning colors, and 0 to reset). Multiple colors can be assigned to an item, but no more than three colors will be shown. New labels show all items tagged with their respective color. These labels can be renamed via a context menu, and shown/hidden via the “Edit” button next to the “Collections” header. On initial usage, only the red color label (named “Favorites”), is shown.
  • Improved the behavior when using the "Locate" button to find a missing user folder. Previously, this would trigger a complete re-scan of the new folder, even if the contents were exactly the same as before, and also lose any colors assigned to items in the folder.
  • When previewing samples in the browser, samples less than 2.5 seconds will always play unwarped and unquantized. Samples longer than 2.5 seconds are unchanged and will play quantized unless the "Raw" button is on.
  • The hierarchy of Group Tracks in a Live Set now appears in the browser. This allows dragging the contents of a Group Track into the current Live Set.
  • In the browser's sidebar, it is now possible to rename user folder labels. The User Library and Current Project folders now have context menus with the "Locate Folder" / "Show in Finder" command. Files can be dragged and dropped onto the User Library, Current Project and use folder labels directly.

Capture

  • Introduced “Capture”: a new way to get music into Live, without the stress of recording. Live now always listens to MIDI input on monitored tracks (i.e. armed tracks with the monitoring set to “Auto”, or unarmed tracks with the monitoring set to “In”). Pressing the “Capture” button creates a Session clip that contains the last phrase played, without any need to activate recording or playback beforehand. Live plays back the captured loop immediately, ready for you to add more material.
  • To trigger Capture from Push 1 and 2, press and hold the “Record” button and then press “New”.

File Handling

  • The Export Audio/Video dialog now shows toggles for "Export PCM" and "Export MP3". When "Export PCM" is on, a PCM file is written. In addition to WAV and AIFF, FLAC and WavPack formats are available for PCM export. When "Export MP3" is on, a CBR 320 kbps MP3 file is written. It is possible to export PCM and MP3 simultaneously. If neither toggle is enabled, the Export button will be disabled.
  • Upon saving a Set using "Save Live Set", "Save Live Set As" or "Save a Copy", the previous version gets moved into a backup folder of the current Project. Up to 10 old versions of the Set are stored in this folder. In Live's browser, the current Set has "Show Old Version" context menu command, that points to its most recent backup version. When a backup version is loaded, it gets saved to the original location.
  • When saving a Live Set, the undo history is no longer cleared. The original file and history position are remembered when creating, loading and saving a Live set and the information is used to restore the Live set after a crash.
  • Improved naming and sorting of recorded audio files, by attaching a timestamp to the filename. 
  • Added various changes for Windows 10:
      - Live now supports the Jump List.
      - When using Live 9 and 10 in parallel, they no longer ask for admin rights if you start them   interchangeably.
      - Owners of Live 9 and 10 can choose which version of Live to open a Live Set with, by right-clicking that Set and selecting "Open With".
      - It is now possible to associate .als files with a specific Live version, via "Control Panel" → "Apps" → "Default Apps".
  • Large Live Sets can now be closed 5-10 times faster.
  • Improved the speed of loading samples referenced by a Live Set. This reduces the Live Set loading time considerably.
  • Dropped support for The Bridge.

Interface Improvements

  • Incorporated the new Ableton Sans font in Live.
  • Introduced the Live 10 color palette.
  • MIDI notes are now drawn in their clip color in the Note Editor.
  • Updated the appearance of clips in both Session and Arrangement View.
  • Introduced a set of five new themes in place of the previously available Live "skins".
  • Introduced a preference to enable HiDPI mode on Windows. HiDPI mode can be enabled on Windows 10 via Live's Preferences → Look/Feel → Enable HiDPI mode.
  • Introduced Pen Tablet Mode and added it to Live's Preferences. Pen Tablet Mode allows use of graphic tablets to meaningfully control Live’s UI, and improves the experience with touch screens. It replaces the "AbsoluteMouseMode" option.
  • Added new mouse cursors for resizing clips and dragging clip content in the Arrangement on Windows.
  • Live's dials and sliders are now rendered using real-time vector graphics rather than bitmaps. The result looks sharp and consistent at any zoom level.
  • Added a "Assign Track Color to Clips" menu item to the context menu of track headers. When the command is used in the Arrangement View, it applies the track color to Arrangement View clips. When used in Session View, it applies the color to Session View clips.
  • Enabled sample dots on the waveforms. When zooming in, users can now more closely see where their samples are on the Time Ruler.
  • Some of Live’s UI motion has been improved to move at 60 frames per second.
  • Added several visual improvements for Windows: the second window now shows the same menu bar as the main window. When the Alt key is pressed, no letters in the menu bar are underlined anymore. Also, modal windows now come to the front if the window underneath is clicked. Previously, the modal window could only be brought to the front by Alt+Tabbing to a Live window.
  • Previously, resizing the Session View vertically or horizontally caused the Session View to "bounce" up and down, as a way of accommodating the vertical / horizontal quantization of resized scenes and clips. Now, the Session View is resized in a fluid way, with no bouncing or quantization.
  • The clip/device drop area is now always displayed in Session View to enable dragging.

Max for Live Improvements

  • Max is now bundled in Live, and no longer requires an external installation.
  • Live will always use the bundled version of Max.
  • Max is now loaded at startup, instead of when the first Max device is used.
  • Max for Live devices now support multiple audio inputs and outputs, which can be accessed via the track's Input and Output Channel choosers. Devices can also be routed to arbitrary tracks via the Live API.
  • It is now possible to route devices and device chains to Max for Live devices.

Mixer

  • It is now possible to change a track's Pan control to 'Split Stereo Pan Mode', via a context menu item. This both applies to both Arrangement and Session View.
  • It is now possible to route an individual Drum Rack pad's audio output to one of its parent Drum Rack's return chains. This allows these return chains to be used as mix buses.
  • It is now possible to reset knob and slider control values to their default value by double-clicking them (in the same way that the "Delete" keyboard shortcut works). The double-click gesture does not apply to toggles or action buttons.

Multi MIDI Clip Editing

  • Introduced multi-clip editing, which enables viewing up to seven MIDI clips at the same time. When multiple MIDI clips are selected, clicking on a note or multi-clip loop bar in the MIDI Editor sets the focus on the respective clip. Loop points are represented by vertical lines in the Note Editor.
  • The state of the MIDI Editor's Fold button is now set globally across all tracks, rather than per track. The Fold button can now be Key/MIDI-mapped.
  • The state of the MIDI Editor's Preview switch is now set globally across all tracks, rather than per track.
  • Changed Fold button behaviour for MIDI clips on tracks that contain a Drum Rack: when Fold is deactivated, the MIDI Note Editor only shows rows with notes corresponding to a pad with devices on it, and when Fold is activated, only rows containing notes are displayed.

Navigation

  • “Added “Show All Tracks” in the View and context menus in the Arrangement View. This minimizes all tracks, allowing you to see as many as possible on your screen. The action can also be triggered via the "S" shortcut.
  • It is now possible to zoom to (and back from) time selection in Arrangement and in Detail View. This feature can be triggered with the "Z"  and Shift + "Z" respectively, via the View menu, or via a context menu item.
  • It is now possible to zoom vertically and horizontally in the Arrangement View, using two-finger trackpad gestures or a mousewheel. Pressing "ALT" (Mac/Win) while scrolling vertically zooms the amplitude/pitch axis of the selected track(s). Pressing "CMD" (Mac) / "CTRL" (Win) while scrolling vertically zooms the timeline to the cursor position.
  • It is now possible to scroll horizontally using the Shift modifier key also on WIndows.
  • On U.S. keyboards, it is now possible to zoom by pressing "+" without using the Shift modifier key.
  • In Arrangement View, Detail View, Simpler, and Sampler, zooming with a mouse wheel or trackpad is now possible using the Ctrl (WIN) or Cmd (OSX)  modifier key.
  • When time is selected within an Arrangement clip, Detail View's display now zooms in on the selected time.
  • When making an edit in the Arrangement or Detail View, Follow is now paused instead of being deactivated. When paused, the Follow button changes from yellow to orange. When stopping or re-starting playback, or scrubbing, Follow starts again. Furthermore, Follow is also paused when scrolling horizontally in Arrangement.
  • Dragging frozen clips and tails to the clip/device drop area in the Arrangement View creates new frozen tracks.
  • Dragging clips from existing tracks to the clip/device drop area creates a new track with those clips, and also the devices from the original tracks.
  • Audio effects can now be dragged to the Master track's Scene Launch area.

New Devices and Device Improvements

  • Introduced Wavetable, a new Instrument for Live. Wavetable is a dual oscillator wavetable synthesizer with flexible modulation, that brings harmonically rich and expansive modern sounds to Live’s sonic palette.
  • Introduced “Echo”, a new audio effect device for Live. Echo is a modulation delay that is capable of a wide range of sounds, from tape-saturated and bucket-brigade styles, right through to modern, clean and digital delays. Echo includes an LFO that modulates filter frequency and delay time, and an envelope follower that can be blended with the LFO. “Noise” and “Wobble” parameters simulate sound artifacts found in vintage delays. Also included are a distortion switch, a reverb, stereo width control, a ducking compressor, a gate, a feedback signal inversion switch, and a toggle for repitching and crossfading repeats.
  • Introduced “Pedal”, a new audio effect device for Live. Pedal is a guitar distortion effect, that can also be used in less conventional settings, e.g., as a standalone effect on synths or drums. Pedal has three different modes: Overdrive, Distortion and Fuzz. Each mode was inspired by distortion pedals with their own distinct sonic characteristics, including: warm and smooth, tight and aggressive, and bluesy yet broken.
  • Introduced “Drumbuss”, a new audio effect for Live. An analog-style drum processor, Drumbuss was designed to add body and character to a group of drums, while gluing them together in a tight mix. Drumbuss combines the most used drum processing tools into a single device, which includes distortion, a compressor, low-frequency enhancement, a transient shaper and a control for dampening high frequency response.
  • Introduced the improved “Utility” device for Live. The Gain control can now be adjusted from -infinite dB to +35 dB. The Left / Right Phase buttons now invert Utility’s input signal instead of its output signal. Furthermore, the layout has been redesigned to fit new features, including a Mono switch, a Bass Mono switch, a Bass Mono Frequency slider, a Bass Mono Audition button, and a Balance knob control (which replaces the Panorama slider). Older Sets will continue to sound the same due to an added legacy mode. Older Utility devices can be upgraded via a button in the title bar."
  • Extended EQ Eight's minimum frequency down to 10 Hz.

Nested Groups

  • It is now possible to create Group Tracks within Group Tracks.
  • For Group Tracks, the "Assign Track Color to Clips" context menu item was renamed to "Assign Track Color To Grouped Tracks & Clips". When the command is used, the contained tracks (and their respective clips) inherit the Group Track's color.

Push

  • Control Surfaces are now available when Live runs as a ReWire slave. This applies to both Push 1 and 2 as well.
  • It is now possible to convert audio to MIDI from Push, using the Convert button.
  • Added Split Stereo Pan Mode to Push 1 and 2. When Split Stereo Pan Mode is active while in Global Mix Mode, the current pan value is displayed but the pan dial is inactive. In Track Mix Mode, either the pan dial or stereo pan sliders are shown, depending on the active pan mode.
  • The Repeat button's state and setting is now remembered for each track.
  • It is now possible to arm a track with one hand via Push 2 by holding the respective track's selection button.
  • Nested chains can now be displayed, folded and unfolded on Push 2.
  • Introduced a root level 'Collections' folder for color labels/collections in the Push 2 browser in Live 10. This prevents other important root level items like 'User Files' from being pushed off the screen by many Collection Labels.  

Push Device Visualization

  • Visualization of filter bands was added to EQ Eight on Push 2.
  • Added a new parameter layout and a graphical representation of the Activity View to Compressor on Push 2.
  • It is now possible to configure a sidechain routing for Compressor from Push 2.
  • Redesigned the Filter Envelope, LFO Envelope, and Pitch Envelope banks for Operator on Push 2, and added a visualization to the Envelopes.
  • Added a visualization of Simpler's Envelopes to Push 2.
  • Improved waveform drawing performance for Push 2.

Push MIDI Clip Mode

  • Notes are now shown in Push 2’s Clip Mode, when a MIDI clip is selected. The velocity of each note is also indicated by the note's opacity.
  • Implemented a representation of the sequenceable area for the melodic step sequencer on the Push 2 display. A grid window indicates the sequenceable range on the pads within the selected loop page.
  • It is now possible to crop MIDI clips from Push 2.
  • When changing the loop position from Clip View, the 32-pad melodic step sequencer now follows the active portion of a clip.

Push Note Layouts

  • Introduced a new note layout mode on Push, consisting of a 32-step sequencer on the top half of the pad matrix and 32 notes on the bottom half. Users can press pads in the lower section to select which notes to add via the step sequencer, in the upper section. Users can see, add, and remove pitches from steps by holding the respective pads.
  • Added a loop selector to the 32-pad melodic step sequencer layout. Users can access it by holding the Layout button on Push 2 or holding the Note button on Push 1.
  • On Push 1 and 2, note layouts are now remembered per track.
  • It is now possible to delete the contents of a sequencer page on Push 1 and 2, by holding "Delete" and using the Loop Selector.
  • It is now possible to duplicate the content of a sequencer page on Push, by holding "Duplicate" and using the Loop Selector.
  • Removed the loop length pads from the Melodic Sequencer on Push 1 and 2, to allow sequencing an extra note on the pads. The loop length pads can still be accessed momentarily, by holding the Note button (Push 1) or Layout button (Push 2).  
  • Pressing Shift”+“Note” (Push 1) or “Shift”+”Layout” (Push 2) now locks the selected layout’s alternate layout. This removes the need to hold the “Note” or ”Layout” button, freeing up that hand for other tasks. Pressing “Note” (Push 1) or “Layout” (Push 2) again unlocks the alternate layout.
  • When using the 16-pad layout in Drum Racks and Simpler’s Slicing Mode, holding the “Note” button (Push 1) or "Layout" button (Push 2) momentarily toggles the 16 Velocities layout.
  • It is now possible to access the Loop Selector while in 64-pad mode by holding the “Note” button (Push 1) or "Layout" button (Push 2).
  • When using the 16 Velocities layout, holding the "Note" button on Push 1 or “Layout” button on Push 2 now toggles the Loop Selector.

Setup

  • It is now possible to set names for mono or stereo input and output channels from the Input/Output Config preferences window. These names appear in all Input/Output Channel chooser dropdowns (Note: the names are always only associated with the specific audio device; they are not transferred to any other devices). "Tab" and "Shift-Tab" key commands can be used to cycle between the channel names.
  • It is now possible to choose between different metronome sounds from the Metronome's context menu.
  • It is now possible to select a different tick interval for the Metronome, via its pull-down and context menus. The default "Auto" setting behaves the same as in Live 9 (i.e., the tick interval follows the time signature's denominator). Interval selections that don't fit into one bar of the current time signature will appear disabled. If the currently selected interval no longer fits in a bar due to a time signature change, the metronome tick will return to the "Auto" behavior. However if the time signature is changed so that the interval selection fits in a bar again, the tick will follow the selected interval.
  • Added the "Enable only while recording" menu item to the Metronome's pull-down and context menus. If this is enabled and the Metronome is activated, the Metronome is only audible while recording. If recording into the Arrangement while the Punch-In switch is active, the Metronome is only audible after the punch-in point. The "Enable only while recording" setting is not saved in Preferences, and must be enabled every time Live is started.
  • The Computer MIDI Keyboard is now always off at application launch. It can now be toggled with the "M" key.
  • By default, the Computer MIDI Keyboard is now always disabled on start up. Its current state is kept when creating or loading a Live Set.
  • Live 64-bit performance on Windows should now be slightly improved.
  • On Windows, the small arrow that exits Fullscreen Mode is now also visible in the lower right corner of the second window.
  • On Windows, authorizing Live after reinstalling your operating system does not require to use up another authorization.
  • Updated FLAC to 1.3.2 and enabled code optimizations. Live Packs might now install up to 20% faster than before on modern CPUs.
  • Context menu items now react when the mouse is released, instead of after the initial mouse click. This makes it possible to drag away from a selection to cancel triggering an item, while keeping the context menu open. When hovering over disabled context menu items, they are no longer highlighted.
