Back in April, Ableton teased us, by releasing an update to Live – with ‘Disco’ skin – and then yanking it, just as we were sharing the news.
Today, Ableton released Live 9.0.4 – and Disco lives.

Ableton has released Live 9.0.3, adding new features, bug fixes and improved support for Push.
[Ed. note: post updated, 11 am, 4/19/13. See bottom of story for details.]
Here’s what’s new:
Improvements and feature changes:
- Added a new skin: “Disco”.
- Added a new option to the “Record/Warp/Launch” preferences pane: “Start Transport with Record”. If activated, the transport will start immediately when clicking on the Session- or Arrangement-Record buttons. If deactivated, it prepares for recording as in Live 8, so you have to launch a clip in Session View or click the ‘Play’ button. You can hold down the Shift modifier key when clicking on the record buttons to invert the behavior temporarily.
- When recording automation on top of an existing automation envelope, and quickly clicking on different positions in parameters like sliders, X/Y pads, etc., Live now records a latching automation envelope instead of jumping back to the previous value.
- The Compressor device does not clip input signals at +20 dB anymore.
- Added control surface support for Novation Launchkey series.
- Added control surface support for M-Audio Axiom Air Mini 32.
- Added a user satisfaction survey. After several hours of usage, Live will ask you to rate the software on the next startup. You can submit a star rating or simply dismiss the survey.
- Updated manual, lessons and translations.
Here’s that ‘Disco’ skin screen shot you were hoping for: Continue reading
