    i 100% agree that native controller devices like env follower, lfo,etc are needed. not so much because the M4L aren't any good, but the dsp hit (particularly for the first m4l device in a project) is unacceptable...

    yes like how you select snap to grid in midi clip or arrange view ( 1/16 ,⅛, ¼, etc) select a snap value (or same value) for automation is a long wanted feature.... i hate having to hit B, click to hit in some snapped automation for a length (rather than a pin point) and delete the other half of the automation you don't want (i hope this makes sense lol)

    9.5.1b1 Release Notes
    Improvements and feature changes:
    • The Python framework has been updated to support Python 2.7.
    • Improved the time required to slice an audio sample to a Drum Rack.
    • Updated fonts and added a number of special characters.
    • The Live 8 Legacy Mode in Operator has been renamed to something more meaningful.
    • Performance improvements in waveform rendering.
    • Slicing visualization improvements and other minor cosmetic tweaks for Simpler and Sampler.
    • While samples are offline or still decoding, Slice to Drum Rack and Slice to new Midi Track from Simpler are disabled.
    Bugfixes:
    • Live might become unresponsive on OSX if no Max application can be found. Furthermore, Live would not find Max 7 on its own on Windows.
    • Tracks created by dragging and dropping a rack or rack preset will now correctly be assigned with a new track color.
    • Fixes a crash which might happen in conjunction with Complex / Pro modes.
    • Live could hang at launch while displaying the splash screen on Windows 10
    • The modulation destinations for the new legacy filters in Sinmpler and Operator are now hidden and updated correctly when upgrading a device.
    • Improved the CPU performance of Complex and Pro when playing back short loops. Note that while clip loops are limited to at least 1/16 note in length, simpler loops can be as small as 50 samples.
    • Live would crash when cropping samples in Sampler.
    • Live could hang when loading sets referencing Max devices, if these were saved with Max 6.1.7 or earlier.
    Changes for Push:
    • The color mapping for Push 2's step sequencers has been improved, to better reflect different velocity ranges.
    • Scales mode can now act as a momentary toggle if held.
    • When simpler is in 64 pad slicing mode, the touch strip can work as Pitch Bend or Modulation Wheel.
    • It is now possible to load and hotswap samples in audio tracks.
    • It is now possible to toggle the Global Record button via Push by holding Shift and pressing the Session Record button.
    • Sample names are now displayed in the browser while hotswapping.
    • Introduced a short delay before showing the tempo/swing message when touching the encoders, to reduce the amount of notifications.
    • When zoomed out on a long sample, it is now possible to see an indication of the existing slices on the Push display.
    • Push would keep showing the loop selector in sequencer mode after deleting a Clip.
    • After converting an audio clip to a Simpler from Push, device mode will be selected automatically.
    • When converting between Simpler and Sampler, Push 2 would lose device selection.
    • The display could get stuck showing in User mode. Additionally, it is now possible to momentarily enter user mode by holding the respective button.
    • Mute and Solo would not work if the currently selected track were outside the Session Ring
    • When loading a sample from the browser, Simpler's "Mode" always would "Classic" on Push display regardless of the default for "dropping samples on Device View".
    • The arrow keys would stop working in the browser after switching between note and session mode while using the Push browser.
    • Selecting a scene in Live would cause Clip selection from Push not to work anymore.

    9.5.1b2 Release Notes
    Improvements and feature changes:
    • Introduced Link, a technology which keeps devices in sync when connected to the same network.
    • A 'Link' section has been added to the Link/MIDI preferences tab.
    • Link and The Bridge prevent each other from starting once switched on.
    • Link and The Bridge both switch off External sync when activated.
    • Link, The Bridge and External Sync are not available when Live runs as a ReWire slave.
    Bugfixes:
    • The spread pitch control is now disabled if Simpler is using Re-Pitch as warping mode.
    • Live would crash when converting a sliced Simpler to a Drum Rack from within an Instrument Rack.
    • When slicing an audio Clip to a Sampler based slicing preset, all slices would be assigned to the same root note.
    • The text in the Simpler 'Warp As' button would not be displayed properly when running Live in a language other than English.
    • Simpler would cause an unusual high memory usage if the user had set 'Complex' as the default mode for Warping.
    Changes for Push:
    • It is now possible to browse Scales also with the up/down and left/right arrows.
    • When holding the mute/solo button, muted/soloed tracks would display their original color on the display: these now correctly display the muted/soloed state.
    • Under certain circumstances the Push pads would not reflect the selected slice when using a sliced Simpler.
    • When hotswapping an instrument, browser selection could disappear when scrolling up/down with the Push arrows.

    9.5.1b3 Release Notes
    Improvements and feature changes:
    • Added control surface support for the Arturia KeyLab series, Arturia BeatStep and Arturia MiniLab.
    • When tweaking Warp mode specific parameters in Simpler (i.e. grain size, flux), these are now updated in real time. Previously, these would be only updated on a per-note basis.
    • Add a preference to re-enable random clip colors.
    • When joined a Link session, dropping a sample or clip into a blank/default live set will not change the set tempo.
    • Updated various info texts.
    Bugfixes:
    • The OSR filter might produce unwanted artefacts when used with high frequency and resonance settings.
    • Audio files would not retain the color saved in the respective .asd file when dropped into a track.
    • Simpler's playhead could jump unexpectedly when starting the transport while playing back warped samples.
    • Fixed an issue which might cause incorrect timing for samples warped with Complex.
    • A crash could take place when playing back sliced samples in Simpler, if 'Snap' had previously been activated in Classic or One-Shot mode.
    Changes for Push:
    • Push 2 Firmware updated to v1.0 build 45. This fixes a problem where the hardware would sometimes fail to initialize on Windows.
    • Push 1 can now utilize custom device banks for Simpler.
    • Dynamic parameter banks are in place for Push 1 as well. Parameters that don't have an effect due to some other parameter being disabled will now be hidden. In addition, Simpler, Sampler, Operator and Auto Filter now have the 'Filter Slope' parameter in their banks.
    • Added a 12/24 dB button (filter slope) to Auto Filter, Operator and Sampler for Push 2.
    • Improved encoder responsiveness when selecting a parameter through a list on Push 2.
    • Improve waveform rendering when switching through tracks and selecting Drum Pads.
    • Under certain conditions, the waveform in Simpler flickered on display when zooming in on longer samples.
    • No auto preview was available for the currently selected item when navigating to a list using an encoder.
    • Improved the Push initialization process when the unit is power cycled while Live is open.

    The only interesting bits of beta news would have been the ones they 'hid' from us going into 9.5. If we could have beta tested, for example, the new simpler before 9.5's unexpected release that would have been good. Instead they give us public testers the boring shit :(
    I'll still keep posting the updates though. O and my bug I reported at b2 hasn't been fixed. Makes me sad :(

    Nothing interesting...

    9.5.1b5 Release Notes
    Bugfixes:
    • Recovering Live sets after a crash would not succeed under certain circumstances.
    • Dragging a selection of an arrangement clip into Simpler now sets the start and end flags according to the selection.
    • Snap is automatically disabled when slicing a Simpler to a Drum Rack. This ensures that the sound of playback does not change after slicing a Simpler to a Drum Rack.
    • Live could crash when playing back warped samples in Simpler. The crash would occur when a new note began playing at the exact same time that another playing note was ending, if that also choked or retriggered the previous note.
    • Reduced audible artifacts and improved timing for samples warped with Complex and Complex Pro.
    • When using Link, the Driver Error Compensation value was previously used to adjust the latency compensation for the sync, whenever an audio driver did not report its latency correctly. This is not the case anymore and the Master track delay can be used instead.
    Changes for Push:
    • Push 2 Firmware is updated to build 46. This Firmware update is intended to mitigate unexpected high velocity values which might be triggered when Push pads are played softly. This is an intermediate step towards a proper fix. Please note that, depending on your pad sensitivity settings, it might now be more difficult to reach maximum velocity.
    • On Push 1, plugin parameter names would not update correctly anymore if these change dynamically e.g. when loading a new preset. In addition, Push 2 now also updates such plugin parameter names dynamically.

    Nuffin' interesting..

    9.5.1b6 Release Notes

    Bugfixes:
    • A crash could occur when dragging the Start Marker to the very end of a file in Simpler and playing back a warped, looped sample with 'Snap' active.
    • Changing Simpler's playback mode via the keyboard would not be undoable.
    • Live could hang when loading Live Sets with large numbers of multisample parts.
    • Live would crash on OSX 10.11 when a user closed the second window while it was shown in fullscreen mode.
    Changes for Push:
    • 'Mute', 'Solo' and 'Stop Clip' can be locked by holding the respective button. This enables muting tracks, bypassing devices, soloing tracks and stopping Clips with one single button press.
    • Live would crash when converting a Clip to Simpler, if the device default for Dropping Samples on Device View consisted of a Simpler instance inside an Instrument Rack.

    Hello 9.6. But don't worry @ArticStorm nothing to get excited about!

    edit: they really wanted to make Link seem like a big deal for its official release, so they thought 9.6 sounded better for that purpose than 9.5.1


    9.6b1 Release Notes
    Bugfixes:
    • When dragging the Simpler start flag towards the end of the sample, this would overlap with the End flag, which then could not be clicked nor dragged anymore. The same behavior occurred the other way around (the End flag might have covered the Start flag).
    • Live could crash when playing back audio files with sample rate below 44.100Hz, if these were warped with Complex or Pro.
    Changes for Push:
    • The Push 2 Firmware has been updated to version 1.0.47. This is a maintenance update and does not introduce any user facing changes.
    • When an empty drum pad is selected, 'Add Device' will work like the 'Browse' button, thus it will not prompt the user to swap the entire Drum Rack anymore but rather will enable to load a device or sample inside the pad.
    • When adding a new device to a previously selected pad, the added device will now always be selected.
    • It is now possible to select tracks and devices even while locked mute/solo/stop mode is active. This is achieved by holding the select button.
    • When renaming a macro inside a Rack, the changes would not be immediately reflected on Push 1 and Push 2's display.
    • After using 'Collect All and Save', Simpler instances would fail to display a waveform due to the changed file path.
    • Fixed a few visual inconsistencies for Push 2, where the On/Off icons might be missing for some devices and the Sawtooth waveform orientation was be inverted with respect to the one shown in Live's device choosers.
    • Muting or soloing a Drum Pad or muting a step in the step sequencer while in locked mute/solo mode would mute the currently selected track instead.
    • Under certain circumstances pressing 'Add Track' and loading a new device would swap the instrument residing in the currently selected track instead.
    • Fractions were not shown correctly for Simpler on the Push1 display.
    • Quantized parameters were not displayed correctly on Push1's bar graph.
    • Previously, Push 2 would only show the left channel for stereo waveforms. As of now, the sum of both channels is shown.
    • The encoder resolution for Push 1 was significantly different as of Live 9.5 when compared to previous versions. This has now been rectified.
    • When trying to change the Start/End parameter on an empty Simpler, the parameter would stop updating its state on the Push 1 display even after adding a sample.
    • When moving a channel towards the left while in 'Mix' mode, its channel meter would stop working on Push2.

    9.6.1b1 Release Notes
    Improvements and feature changes:
    • Complex and Pro Warp algorithms have been updated and optimized in order to reduce CPU spikes following the start of a Clip or Simpler voice, especially when transposing or stretching a lot. The update also fixes a number of scenarios where timing issues or artefacts could have taken place.
    • Reduced CPU peak loads when launching, stopping or scrubbing clips, when clicking the "back to arrangement" button, when editing a running clip.
    • Improved CPU spikes caused by external MIDI input on OSX.
    • Improved the reliability and priority of the audio thread when using ASIO drivers. This contributes a noticeable performance improvement and fixes a few cases where Live would drop out when using certain audio interfaces.
    Bugfixes:
    • Certain Audio Unit parameters would show the wrong value in the Device View after instantiation.
    • Touching the Mod Wheel would stop transport when using the Arturia Keylab Control Surfaces.
    • Under certain circumstances, the Launchpad Pro might not initialize correctly.
    • Fixed a bug which prevented to grab the Launchpad matrix in the available User modes from Max for Live devices.
    Changes for Push:
    • On Push 2, playing clips now pulse in their assigned clip color, instead of green. Recording clips pulse between clip color and red.
    • In a context of hotswapping presets, the "Load" feature in the Push 2 browser is set by default on "Load Next".
    • Device selection is now remembered on a per-pad basis on Push 2.
    • An additional visual feedback is introduced to help distinguish hot-swapping an entire drum rack vs. hot-swapping only a single drum pad. In the former case, all drum pads will start pulsing white as long as the browser is open, whereas for hot-swapping a single pad, that pad is pulsing. When hot-swapping a device on a drum pad, no indication is visible. This also fixes a bug which would occur when you were holding a step in the step sequencer, where the pad would stop blinking once it was passed by the playhead.
    • Added a "Load previous" in the Push 2 browser.
    • It is now possible to load a device faster from Push 2, without needing to enter its folder.
    • It is now possible to use "Warp as x bars" also while the sample is not warped yet.
    • Device selection would not be remembered by Push 2 for Effect Racks.
    • Added the missing parameters for Analog 'Amp 2’ under the ‘Amp’ device bank, and 'AEG2 < VEL' under the ‘Amp 2 Envelope’ bank.
    • ‘Vib Delay’ appeared twice under the Tension 'Vibrato' bank.
    • When switching to Clip mode with Push, Live would keep displaying device mode.
    • Previously, 'Press Browse to load a sample' would be erroneously displayed also when focused on Return or Master tracks.
    • The Push Display could go blank when loading certain plugin presets or when switching through device banks with Push 2.
    • "Lock to Control Surface" would not work anymore with Push 1 or 2.
    • Collapsing the Inline Mixer of a Drum Rack from Arrangement view would cause a visual glitch in Session View.
    • Adjusted the timing a notification is displayed on Push 2, which now is in relation to the length of the text.

    9.6.1b2 Release Notes
    Bugfixes:
    • Under certain circumstances Live could crash on OSX when importing an audio file, if this was associated to a pre existing '.asd' file. This bugfix also further improves timing errors when using Complex and Pro Warp modes.
    • With audio buffer sizes larger than 512 Samples, values sent by the APC40 and APC40 Mk2 encoders would cause the mapped Live parameters to behave erratically.
    • Fixed a bug which prevented Max for Live devices from grabbing the Launchpad Pro matrix in the available User modes.
    Changes for Push:
    • The Push 2 firmware is updated to version 1.0.48. This is a maintenance update.
    • Session view on Push 2 would not work correctly if white clips were present.
    • Push would display Clip length erroneously when using time signatures other than 4/4.
    • Under certain circumstances the channel meters would not be displayed when switching between Track Mix Mode and Global Mix Mode on Push 2.
    • The pulsing phase of the Push 2 pads indicating a recording state has been inverted.
    • Previously, it was not possible to delete Return tracks from Push 1and 2.
    • When in Slicing mode, the Pad Slicing parameter was displayed twice on Push 1.
    • Push 1 would become unresponsive after performing 'Slice to Drum Rack'.

    Not sure where b3 went- Did it even exist?

    9.6.1b4 Release Notes
    Bugfixes:
    • Live would crash when performing 'Undo' after dragging a sample onto Simpler's breakout view.
    • Improved the performance of Ableton Devices on Windows.
    • Reversing an audio Clip twice before the sample analysis completed caused the sample to be greyed out.
    Changes for Push:
    • Scale Layouts are now available for Push 2 as well.
    • The 'Sequent^' and 'Sequent>' Scale Layouts have been improved for both Push 1 and 2.
    • Push 2 Firmware is upgraded to version 1.0.49. This is a maintenance update.
    • The ‘Sensitivity' parameter was erroneously swapped with 'Detune' in Simpler (Slicing mode).
    • The Push 2 display would crash when browsing plug-ins, if the plug-in folder contained a number of devices which exposed the exact same name to Live.
    • When adding plug-in parameters to the parameter list in Device View via 'Configure', the device bank in Push Device mode would only update after switching back from a different mode or track.
    • When selecting devices with Push (1 and 2) in a long chain, Device View in Live would not auto-scroll anymore.
    • On Push, a number of toggle buttons across devices would display ‘0’,’1’ instead ‘On’, ‘Off’.
    • When switching from Live mode to User mode, the LED state for mapped pads/buttons would not be recalled properly.

    9.6.1b5 Release Notes
    Changes for Push:
    • In Drum Racks, it is now possible to transpose the note played by a pad.
    • In Mix mode, the track meters now change in color to reflect the state of the track routing / monitoring, as they do in Live.
    • Improved the waveform zooming behavior on Push 2 for both Simpler and audio Clip mode.
    • Improved performance when scrolling vertically in Session View with Push 2.
