Update adds user wavetables, new devices, workflow upgrades and more 28/05/19
No longer in beta, Ableton Live 10.1 has been officially released. Ableton tells us that this is a significant free update that adds new tools and features to support musicians’ creative process, from making and shaping sound to editing and finalizing their tracks.
User wavetables allow musicians to extend the capabilities of Wavetable’s oscillator section by importing their own wavetables or samples.
Channel EQ is a flexible and simple EQ with curves and gain ranges suitable for a variety of audio material.
Delay combines Simple Delay and Ping Pong Delay and moves ping pong behavior, Jump,Fade-In and Pitch controls from those devices to the front panel.
New automation features include a new palette of automation shapes, stretch and skew automation and the ability to enter precise values with a numerical keypad. It’s easier to get access to clip modulation in Session View. Additionally, Live now simplifies complex automation into C- and S-shapes for easier editing.
Improvements to zooming and scrolling make switching between detailed views and big-picture editing faster with streamlined keyboard shortcuts, pinch zooming on compatible computers, a resizable Arrangement Overview window, and more.
Live 10.1 now also allows users to freeze tracks that contain sidechain routing, export single tracks and groups with return and master effects applied and use all their VST3 plug-ins.
