Interesting New Features in Ableton Live 10.1 Beta

Drop your own samples into the built-in Wavetable synth and more.

Ableton is currently beta testing the latest update to Ableton Live 10, and the 10.1 update looks like it will be a fairly significant one.

Live 10.1 will be a free update for all licensed users of Live 10; you can sign up for the beta after joining the Centercode bug tracking system.

Among the features is an update to the Wavetable synth (available only in the Live 10 Suite) which allows users to input their own samples to the Wavetable’s oscillator section.

Ableton has an intro video, linked above.

Other updates include:

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 Musicians get a palette of automation shapes to choose from, as well as the ability to stretch and skew automation, enter values with the numerical keypad, and easier access to clip modulation in Session View. Live now also detects curved movements inside automation and can merge multiple breakpoints into C- and S-shapes.

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.
