Ableton Live 10.1 is available to download now

The new update, which is available to download for free to any existing user of Ableton Live 10, aims to add a handful of new tools and features to enhance the creative process of all users, including new delays, EQs, automation tools and more. 




Whether you’re simply adding flavour to a drum loop or editing and finalising your Live set ready for performance, Live 10.1 offers plenty to dive into, including:


  • User wavetables allow musicians to extend the capabilities of Wavetable’s oscillator section by importing their own wavetables or samples.
  • Channel EQ is a flexible and simple EQ with curves and gain ranges suitable for a variety of audio material.
  • Delay combines Simple Delay and Ping Pong Delay and moves ping pong behavior, Jump, Fade-In and Pitch controls from those devices to the front panel.
  • New automation features include a new palette of automation shapes, stretch and skew automation and the ability to enter precise values with a numerical keypad. It’s easier to get access to clip modulation in Session View. Additionally, Live now simplifies complex automation into C- and S-shapes for easier editing.
  • Improvements to zooming and scrolling make 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.
  • Live 10.1 now also allows users to freeze tracks that contain sidechain routing, export single tracks and groups with return and master effects applied and use all their VST3 plug-ins.
