Live 11 features:
- Take Recording and Comping – Live organizes multiple passes of an audio or MIDI performance into individual takes. The best parts of these takes can then be stitched together for the desired final result. Comping can also be used as a fun way to explore sound and the sound design process.
- Linked Track Editing – Link two or more tracks to edit their content simultaneously.
- MPE-capable native devices – Wavetable, Sampler and Arpeggiator are updated to support MPE. Musicians can now control parameters per note for these devices, as well as third-party plug-ins.
- Hybrid Reverb – Combines convolution and algorithmic reverbs, making it possible to create any space, from accurate real-life environments to those that defy physical reality.
- Spectral Resonator – Breaks the spectrum of an incoming audio signal into partials, then stretches, shifts and blurs the result by a frequency or a note in subtle or radical ways. The MIDI sidechain input also allows musicians to process material in key and even play the device as if it were a polyphonic instrument.
- Spectral Time – Transforms sound into partials and feeds them into a frequency based delay, resulting in metallic echoes, frequency-shifted and reverb-like effects. The Freeze function captures and holds a slice of audio – either free-running or in time with the beat – for stuttered, glitched and washed-out effects.
- Live Tempo Following – Live listens to and adjusts its tempo based on incoming audio in real time, making it a dynamic part of the band instead of the tempo source that everyone has to follow.
- Macro Snapshots – Musicians can store the state of Macros for later recall – a fast way to create instant variations to sounds, or builds and drops during the performance.
- Rack improvements – Racks can be configured to have between 1 and 16 Macros, Macro states can be randomized with the push of a button
- Note chance – Set the probability that a note or drum hit will occur and let Live generate surprising variations to your patterns that change over time.
- Velocity chance – Define ranges for velocity probability for subtle, humanized variations in the dynamics of your patterns.
- Improved Follow Actions – Follow Actions can now be linked to the clip length, be set to jump to specific clips and be enabled and disabled globally. Scene Follow Actions make evolving arrangements possible.
On top of this extensive list, Live 11 includes 3 new instruments produced in collaboration with Spitfire Audio, 3 new packs known as ‘Curated Collections’, as well as plenty of improvements to MIDI and clip editing and updates to existing devices such as Redux and Phaser.
