Ableton Live 10.1 Update Now Available, Here’s What’s New

Ableton has released Live 10.1, a free update for Live 10 owners that gives you new tools and features, for making and shaping sound to editing and finalizing your music.

Here’s what’s new:

  • User wavetables: Extend the capabilities of Wavetable’s oscillator section by importing your own wavetables or samples from your library into the device.
  • Channel EQ: A flexible and simple EQ with curves and gain ranges suitable for a variety of audio material. The shape of the filters adapts based on how controls are set to always provide musical results.
  • Delay: Combines Simple Delay and Ping Pong Delay and adds feature upgrades. Ping pong behavior, as well as Jump, Fade-In and Pitch controls from those devices are all accessed from the front panel.
  • New automation features: Choose from a new palette of automation shapes, stretch and skew automation and enter precise values with your numerical keyboard. Get easier access to clip modulation in Session View. Live now also simplifies complex automation into C- and S-shapes for easier editing.
  • Improvements to zooming and scrolling: Live 10.1 makes switching between detailed views and big-picture editing faster with streamlined keyboard shortcuts, pinch zooming on compatible computers, a resizable Arrangement Overview window, and more.

Also new in Live 10.1:

  • Freeze tracks that contain sidechain routing.
  • Export single tracks and groups with return and master effects applied.
  • Use your VST3 plug-ins in Live.

    1. NO, shortcut shouldn’t be in the way of the QWERTY computer keyboard, and the old shortcuts we all veteran users know. Besides.. now, toggle (M key) between edit view and “blocks” view is a workflow Mega-Killer

  1. It’s nice that Ableton has added automation shapes and simplified the delay. Hopefully they are getting close to implementing MPE now that it has been standardized. Proper MPE MIDI tracks have been at the top of many users request lists for quite awhile now so it would be great to see some progress from Ableton on that front.
