    Not 9.8 but a few bits.
    Most significantly and other attempt at improving the complex warp modes. Let's hope they work this time....

    9.7.1b1 Release Notes
    Improvements and feature changes:
    • Improved sound and timing of Complex and Complex Pro warp modes.
    • Added Control Surface support for M-Audio Code and CTRL49.
    Bugfixes:
    • Fixed a bug where unavailable routings were not grayed out.
    • Live would crash when performing 'Undo' after grouping chains in a Rack.
    • Fixed a bug that prevented certain units (e.g "ms") from being displayed in an Audio Unit's parameter value text.
    • Fixed an error in the software text for the Spanish language.
    • Launching playback in Live right after enabling Link would force all other apps to adjust their tempo.
    Changes for Push:
    • It is now possible to convert an audio clip to a Simpler or Drum Rack pad in Arrangement from Push.
    • Frozen tracks no longer appear as a target when routing via Push 2.
    • When there was no device in a track, Push would display a device from a different track, if that track was being played by another track or a Control Surface.
    • When creating a clip by adding a step from Push, the clip length was always two bars by default, until the Fixed Length value was changed once after loading a set.
    • Push would not initialize when recovering a Set after a crash.
    • Choosing a scale on Push would corrupt the Undo history.
    • The monitoring state would not be displayed when the routing target was set to "No Input", even if a signal was routed to this track's input from a different track.

    @Oysters would be better to just introduce a algo complex wrap v7 instead of trying to fix it. complex wrap mode worked awsome there.

    im sure ableton will go straight to 9.9.9 before coming out with Ableton X.0

    not much exciting here:

    9.7.1b2 Release Notes
    Bugfixes:
    • A visual glitch would affect folded Group tracks in arrangement, under certain circumstances.
    • The 64 bit Live version would fail to recall VST parameters when loading certain .fxp preset files on OSX. In addition to that, loading certain .fxb bank preset files could lead to crashes.
    Changes for Push:
    • Clip parameters on Push 2 were unresponsive after a Clip recording.
    • Live could crash when duplicating a track containing Simpler instances, if Push 2 was in use.
    • Live's CPU usage would jump to an unexpected high value on MacOS Sierra, if the Push 2 script was enabled but no Push 2 device was connected to the computer.

    Maybe such a small changelog is a sign that they're putting the majority of their efforts into Ableton X? :winker: :wink:

    I'm probably wrong. :bleh::rofl:

    i remember the early days of live 8 being so bad- super crash-centric.
    but since then live has been a rock of stability.
    but i have found for the first time, that these 9.7.1 betas have been crashing A LOT.
    anyone else finding this? I'm on mac, how about you windows guys?

    I'm on the newest non-beta and it's just as finicky for me as it has always been on Windows with AMD processor. That being said I definitely don't prefer the workflow of Live though different strokes though I'm not here to bash Live just to share my experience.

    I've had some good luck lately with S1 and the way it works with the track freezing and such. I'm using the Akai/inmusic VIP software as the basis of most of my instrument VSTs and every time you convert to audio track in S1 and offload it, it's as if it never existed in the first place. When you turn it back into an instrument track though that instance shows back up exactly as it was all automation in tact and everything. It's seriously works like a dream because you can offload the processing and then go right back to it.

    I'm really hoping I can find a way to figure out a way to use Bitwig eventually as a scene launcher if I feel like working that way to record into Studio One as MIDI but that definitely won't be for a while =P

    this is a release candidate:

    9.7.1b4 Release Notes
    Bugfixes:
    • Fixed a bug where the output of multiple audio tracks added to a Group Track via drag-and-drop would not be correctly set to the Group Track's input.
    • Fixed a bug which caused folded Group Tracks containing six or more tracks to unfold when moved, and Group Tracks containing five tracks to unfold when a sixth track was moved into them.
    • Link usage is now only possible with supported audio drivers. If Direct X/MME is in use, Link will be automatically disabled.
    Changes for Push:
    • Fixed a bug where a crash might occur when UAD plugins were deleted while Push 2 was in use.
    • Pressing Record on Push would stop a clip if the clip's Launch Mode was set to "Toggle".

    None here really. Some crashes during loading of projects with Izotope Neutron but nothing while I'm actually in the middle of working.

    Full disclosure though, I've barely been using the 9.7.1 betas. They haven't added any new functionality that's significant to my workflow so I just stuck with the stable version.

    The one issue I have been having with Live recently is that undo data seems to get finnicky sometimes. I think one of the Beta release notes said that it fixed a bug where choosing a scale on Push could corrupt the undo.cfg file. I think that might be what I'm experiencing. Maybe I'll switch to the Beta after all.

    dont know when they really want to come around with something the community begs. cant stress the native LFO device enough, i hate using max4sh*t stuff, its a waste of performance.

    I don't mind M4L but you've definitely touched on a sore spot within the Beta testing community, which is they don't seem to be paying much attention to what people are asking for. IMO they don't need to implement a ton of requests, but they do need to at least inform their user base as to whether or not they intend to. This practice of ignoring the top 5 or so requests for years and not even gratifying it with "we're going to work on it" or "we don't think this is necessary" is pissing people off.

    My kingdom for nested folders, hide tracks, custom key commands, and mousewheel functionality. Fucks sake.
