Ableton announced the upcoming release of Live 11. It adds a number of new features based on the most requested from their users.
We got some time with Simon Stokes from Subsine Academy in Glasgow to take us through some of the new features.
As well as new devices and interface tweaks, we get a number of major new editing features, that bring Live into line with other major DAWS - such as:
Organize multiple takes of audio or MIDI into a complete master take through swiping and selection, take lanes can be added during recording, or more interestingly on a track where you can then drop different audio files or variants, then swipe those into a snapped (or not) master comp.
Linked Track Editing
Link audio multi-tracks together and edit as a group - such as drums or multi-mic recordings, then edit while maintaining the phase coherence even while adding warp markers.
Live now finally supports multichannel MIDI for MPE tracks, with some slick eiditng tools for per note expression and pitch bend. Wavetable, Sampler and Arpeggiator also now have MPE support baked in, but you can use 3rd party hardware or software.
Additional features include:
There's also a bunch of new sounds and tweaks, coming early 2021, if you are buying Live 10 now until Live 11 release, you'll automatically be eligible for an free upgrade.
