  1. For anyone waiting I can say that the beta process is very well organised this time with a new beta forum and a LOT of activity- I think the release will be very stabe (the beta is already pretty stable now).

    Thumb up 9
  2. For me, this the most exciting Live release since the early days.

    Anyone else think that we might see “locked” max4live plugins for 9.5?

  3. I’ve been using the beta for about a month or so now and it’s incredibly stable. The X to MIDI stuff tends to be a bit finicky, but on the whole the program has a lot of welcome features, particularly in the midi/automation editing, the session arrangement workflow, and preset previews. The only thing I’m left craving is per-note swing/groove in Drum Racks (without extracting the chain to it’s own channel), but whatever!

  4. I received an email from Live’s team answering my query re: the way that Live 8 & 9 handles pluging delay compensation. Coming from Logic, you just turn it on and everything works & lines up no matter what.

    In Live, there is a working PDC, with two exceptions:

    1. Automation is not delay compensated. As a result, when using automation on tracks that contain devices that cause delays, the automation may sound early.

    2. Tempo-synced effects and other devices that get timing information from Live’s internal clock may sound out of sync if they are placed in a device chain after devices which cause delay.

    In practical daily usage, how much impact does this actually have? (Seems like it could be non-trivial depending on the type of music you’re working on…)

  5. So… he’s using the APC40 in this video, but the ableton website features a picture of his workstation with the APC replaced by a Push…

    yup, calling shenanigans on that 🙂

    On a serious note though – I’ve very interested in the IR stuff too – will there be an IR creation utility built in as with Logic or will we be left to our own devices to make and record clicky noises?

  6. I can’t wait for this to be released along with Push which I am also going to purchase. I do like the fact that Ableton still allows you to use other controllers for their software like PadKontrol where as Maschine doesn’t. A mistake by NI imo.
