Ableton Live 11 is here

A number of fun new devices, MPE recording/editing/modulation, Follow actions, Audio2Tempo.


  • Looks good! Im in the system so I preordered the upgrade.

    hopefully microfreak poly aftertouch can be recorded and edited in ableton now 👍

  • @TheInvisibleMan I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

    But I'm also surprised that you have both Ableton and Bitwig. Will Ableton 11 change your DAW preferences maybe?

    Hihi, well thats the problem with these software thingys, you go one way and then the other comes back with the features you initially wanted. I have ableton suite so i think it makes sense to upgrade this time for the money. Im ok to spend the money knowing i get at least an up to date version for another three years or more.

    i have to say i didn't see this upgrade coming, i thought they might release a push 3 standalone machine first.

    to be honest I don't know which daw i will end up using in 2021 now hihi

    plus midi 2.0 is almost here and that is a .... game changer dare i say.

  • I didn't expect these new devices either - 2020, the year of spectral FX. Or does @giku secretly work for Ableton? 😉

    I can't stick to one DAW as well, although I'm definitely using Live much more than Logic.

    Maybe I'm not the only one and Push 3 couldn't run Logic? 😬

    do you have the suite version? logic looks great too but i don't have a mac... maybe that's a good thing and one less DAW to think about.

    One DAW i never could get into is reaper, i thought maybe you like that due to its open ended nature? it allows people to design their own DAW set up in a way.... not for me.

  • Yes, Suite because even V10 already has quite a number of excellent instruments and FX, including physical modeling.

    Originally coming from Cubase I've only really started using Logic after version 8 when the UI and workflow had already been simplified quite a bit compared to the last v5 I had tried on Windows. It still has one of the best MIDI editors (piano roll, event list and detailed message editing), a deep MIDI environment, outstanding on-board instruments and synths and effects that are good enough for quality music production.

    Funnily, although I love Reaper for its outstanding features and performance, it has never really grown on me. Every time I launch it, I have to think again how to do this or that and it always feels like a creativity killer to me. A bit like Beatmaker 3. Can work well if you prepare good templates but I'm too much into new and spontaneous experiments as to rely on templates.
