The team behind the popular Ableton digital audio workstation always seems to be making improvements to their software, and now the Live 11.1 update has released as a public beta to make the program even more user-friendly.
The new update sees a myriad of features added to streamline the music production process within Ableton, including native support for Apple-branded computers running on the recently introduced M1 Silicon chip.
Ableton’s Frequency Shifter received a new real-time monophonic pitch shift mode, along with an additional envelope section, delay, LFO, and slip functionality.
Align Delay and MIDI Shaper are two of the new utilities added in Live 11.1. The former is used to compensate for any delay that may occur when sending signals via MIDI, while the latter generates modulation data that evaluates the intricacies of the playing style when performed via MIDI. Improvements to Ableton’s CPU counter, composition, and interface were also introduced, along with the standard execution of bug fixes.
Ableton Live 11.1 is now in public beta, and Live 11 licensees can join the public beta by visiting the registration page.
