Loads of new features      26/10/12

Ableton has announced Live 9. You'll find the details and a bunch of new videos like the one above on their webpage, but here's their main list of what's new:
  • Record automation into clips. Edit automation with curves. Session View automation lets you capture your performance or add movement to your loops. Use curves to make automation more musical.
  • Find sounds fast. With Live's new browser, spend less time finding sounds and more time making music.
  • Play new sounds. Live's library includes new Instrument Racks and sounds to get you going fast.
  • Reclaim the music in your samples.... Live 9's new tools for converting audio to MIDI give you unprecedented flexibility to extract musical ideas from your samples and build upon them.
  • ...or sing the music in your head. Sketch out ideas quickly by singing (or beatboxing) into Live and converting your recording to MIDI.
  • Edit the details. Powerful MIDI note manipulation tools and an improved editing workflow help you create new musical ideas fast.
  • Max for Live is now included in Suite. Expand and extend your musical possibilities with Max for Live.
  • Get your sound right. The new analog-modeled Glue Compressor and redesigned studio effects help you get a better sound in less time.
