CDM’s Peter Kirn reports that Ableton offered a preview of Live 9.1 – a free update that promises dual-monitor support and other frequently requested features.
Here’s what’s in in Ableton Live 9.1:
- Dual-monitor support – this has been one of the most frequently requested features by Synthtopia readers, wanting to view Arrangement and Session views on different screens.
- New integration with Push – this will include step sequencing of melodies (not just drums), and step sequencing of automation
- Improved rendering when downsampling on export, which, depending on your workflow, may result in better final audio quality.
Ableton has not made an official announcement for Live 9.1, so details on the upgrade are to come, along with timing for the release.
Dual-monitor support has been one of the key features promised by the upcoming Bitwig Studio. No date has been announced for its release, either, so it remains to be seen which will hit the streets first.
