    When will they fix the dreaded white window from vsts? On Yosemite, and 9.5 on mavericks never had this.

    I don't know of this bug. I am on el cap and never had that problem since the first el cap public beta.

    sorry a bit late on this one (note the reversion in the complex warp algos)

    9.6.1b6 Release Notes

    Bugfixes:

    • Device selection would stop working when using Control Surfaces based on User Remote Scripts.
    • Live could crash if Simpler contained a very long audio file.
    • Occasionally, the grid lines for certain devices (e.g the Frequency Display in EQ Eight, the Bandpass Display in Overdrive) would not be drawn under the 64-bit version on Windows.
    • The Complex and Complex Pro Warp algorithms that were updated and optimized in 9.6.1b1 have been rolled back to the previous version, as the new algorithms could produce audio artefacts under some circumstances.

    Changes for Push:

    • When working with Simpler or Audio Clips on Push 2, the display would scroll erratically if sample Start and End were adjusted at the same time and the active sample region was partially offscreen.
    • The Channel meters on Push 2 could display erratic activity for the currently selected track.
    • Under certain circumstances, LED feedback from Push User mode would be displayed also after going back to Live mode.
    • On Push 2, when entering Device 'Edit mode' for a device loaded into a Drum Rack, this would not be exited correctly upon selecting a different pad.
    • On Simpler and Audio Clips, the waveform view on Push 2 would scroll erratically when tweaking start and end markers at the same time, if the sample active region was partially outside the display.
    • In Simpler, Waveform Slice points and Start, End flags displayed the wrong color when switching between tracks of different color.
    • When duplicating an Audio Clip or a Drum Rack pad based on Simpler, the waveform visualization of the copied item would not be preserved.

    Boom, the betas are back-

    9.6.2b1 Release Notes
    Improvements and feature changes:
    • The ‘Link’ icon in Live's main UI now behaves like a button, toggling the Link feature on and off. This button only appears if Link is enabled in the Preferences.
    • The ‘EXT’ button is no longer hidden when the Link button is shown.
    • Enabling Link disables EXT and vice versa. Loading a new Set disables Link.
    • Improved the responsiveness of the Tuner device.
    • The ‘Improvement Program’ dialog, used to enable Usage data and auto updates, is now displayed after each new software update.
    Bugfixes:
    • The Session Ring would be displayed when selecting certain Control Surfaces, even if no valid input and output MIDI ports were enabled in the respective Control Surfaces menus.
    • If the End Marker of a Clip preceded the Loop End Marker and Clip Loop was on, recording this Clip in arrangement could lead to a wrong result.
    • Fixed a bug which caused Live to hang when loading certain Live Sets.
    • Fixed a bug in Max for Live which prevented 'fold_state' and devices in Drum Rack Chains from being declared.
    • The APC 40 Session Ring would reset to the top left of Live's Session View when adding or removing another Control Surface.
    • The Launchpad Pro User mode would not send MIDI notes into tracks anymore.
    • The Launchpad User mode 2 would not send MIDI notes into tracks anymore.
    Changes for Push:
    • Push 2 Firmware update v 0.51: introduces an improvement for potentiomenters, to prevent jitter due to electrical noise.
    • In Session mode, holding duplicate allows copying and pasting a Clip to a Clip Slot of choice.
    • In the melodic step sequencer, stepped automation is now linked to note length.
    • It is now possible to convert an audio clip to a new drum rack pad.
    • In the Drum Rack Step Sequencer, it is now possible to copy and paste a step into a different part of the Clip for Push 1 and 2.
    • When converting an audio Clip to Simpler, the device chain content is now copied from the original track to the destination track.
    • It is now possible to copy and paste notes across pitches in the melodic step sequencer for Push 1 and 2.
    • When Simpler is in One Shot mode, the Gain parameter is now available in place of Volume.
    • In both the melodic and Drum Rack step sequencer, note length can now be adjusted via the pads, by holding the pad where the step exists, and one pad at its right.
    • When moving the Session Ring with the Page and Octave buttons from Push 2, an absolute offset of 8 will now be used in all cases.
    • When browsing the Drums category, the empty Drum Rack icon would incorrectly display as a folder.
    • Previously, Fixed Length would be ignored if the recording of a Clip was triggered by pressing a pad as opposed to pressing the Record button.
    • The master meter on Push 2 would not turn entirely red, as it does in Live, when the signal was clipping.
    • Display brightness settings would not be restored correctly on Push 2 after power cycling the device.
    • When dragging a sample from an audio track into Simpler from Live, Push 2 would erroneously still display the audio Clip view, even if the track containing Simpler was selected.
    • When a Group Track is selected, using 'Add Track' to add an instrument would lead to unexpected results.
    • If 'Accent' was enabled, changing any of the Note Settings in the step sequencer would cause the velocity for this step to jump to127.
    • After a Drum Rack pad containing Simpler is selected, Device Mode would still display its controls upon selecting a different track.
    • When Simpler was set to Slicing mode and its Playback Mode was 'Mono', Repeat would not behave correctly.
    • Under certain circumstances, the Convert button was not available for audio Clips

    I wouldn't worry too much. Ableton has always been an easy conquest it seems. Won't take long for a patch I am sure

    Edit: sorry it had worked only with an old patch...
