Ableton Updates Live To Version 9.1 – Offers Dual Monitor Support
Ableton has updated Live to version 9.1. The free update is now available for all owners of Live 9 Suite, Standard, Intro and Lite editions, but requires a stand-alone download of the version, and cannot be updated.
Live 9.1 introduces support for two windows, including the option to place the windows on different monitors. For Push owners, Live 9.1 introduces a brand new melodic step sequencer. Enter notes manually, or play them in, then edit each note in the sequence precisely – all via the hands-on interface of Push. Plus, you can now edit automation with step-by-step accuracy.
Finally, there are a couple of under the hood changes that we’d like to draw your attention to. Live 9.1 includes a new rendering algorithm for better quality audio when exporting from higher to lower sample rates – for instance, going from 96kHz to 44.1kHz. Also, rendering now uses multiple cores, which can result in much faster exports.
