Ableton Live 9 appears to be coming soon – because video and images of the updated DAW have leaked to the Internet.
Above, a preview of Ableton Live 9’s ‘Glue Compressor’, developed with partner Cytomic. According to Ableton, it sounds good on everything, but is especially useful for drum tracks or ‘tightening up’ a whole mix.
Ableton also has rebuilt EQ Eight. All of the filters have been rebuilt, which allows for smoother filter sweeps. The interface now can also include an output spectrum:
Other changes include Adaptive Q, 48 dB high and low filters and increased scale range.
Live’s original Compressor has also received an overhaul, allowing for easier compression adjustments. Other changes include a dry/wet control for parallel compression, envelope shape toggle and an expand mode.
The Gate in Ableton Live 9 has also been updated, with easier envelope adjustment and a return parameter for smoother gate behavior.
Here’s a video overview of some of the features in Ableton Live 9:
Official specifications and details on Ableton Live 9 are TBA.
