Ableton Live 11 is now available at Ableton.com and at local retailers worldwide.

The latest version of Live includes comping and MPE, new devices for experimentation, features for live performance, chance tools and much more.

A partial list of what’s new in Live 11 includes:

Comping

  • Comping – Live organizes multiple passes of an audio or MIDI performance into individual takes. The best parts of these takes can be stitched together for the final result.
  • Linked-track editing Link two or more tracks to edit their content simultaneously.

MIDI Polyphonic Expression

  • MPE support – Add bends, slides and pressure for each individual note in a chord, add subtle expression variations, morph between chords and create evolving sonic textures more easily.
  • Expression View – Edit the pitch, slide and pressure envelopes of each note to refine the expression in your music.
  • MPE-capable native devices Wavetable, Sampler and Arpeggiator are updated to support MPE.

New devices

  • Hybrid Reverb Combines convolution and algorithmic reverbs, making it possible to create any space, from accurate real-life environments to those that defy physical reality.
  • Spectral Resonator – Breaks the spectrum of an incoming audio signal into partials, then stretches, shifts and blurs the result by a frequency or a note in subtle or radical ways.
  • Spectral Time – Transforms sound into partials and feeds them into a frequency- based delay, resulting in metallic echoes, frequency-shifted and reverb-like effects.
  • Inspired by Nature – Six playful instruments and effects that use nature and physics as their inspiration. Made in collaboration with Dillon Bastan.
  • PitchLoop89 – Creates jittery glitch effects, delayed digital shimmers and outlandish vibrato. Made in collaboration with Robert Henke.

New in Max for Live

Max for Live gets major updates in Live 11. Among the many improvements are:

  • MIDI Channel Routings It is now possible to route MIDI to and from Max for Live audio effects and instruments.
  • New API additions A redesigned, MPE-compatible note API gives Max for Live access to many of Live 11’s features, including note probability, velocity deviation, and release velocity, as well as slices of a sample in Simpler, a clip or sample’s warp markers, and much more.
  • Performance improvements A complete overhaul of Max for Live’s user interface integration means a smoother experience when working with Max for Live.
  • Improvements for Device creators A new live.scope object adds an oscilloscope to the object library, developers can more clearly indicate which systems their devices can be used on and much more.
