Current Beta Version: Live 8.1.4b2 (updated June 3, 2010)

Post by Dennis DeSantis » Fri Jun 04, 2010 2:08 pm

The current beta version of Live is 8.1.4b2

OS X: http://downloads.ableton.com/extra/5839 ... _814b2.dmg
Windows: http://downloads.ableton.com/extra/5839 ... _814b2.zip

Best,

---------------------

Improvements and feature changes


- Beta versions are now optimized so that performance should be the same as release versions.

- Beta versions no longer expire.

- Combination Mode is now active when multiple Akai APC40/20s are in use. This means that the topmost controller selected in your preferences will control tracks 1-8, the second controller selected will control tracks 9-16, and so on. When an APC40 and an APC20 are connected at the same time, the APC20's buttons will default to Track Selection, and its faders will default to volume.


Bugfixes


- Fixed a rare crash that could occur when deleting a Drum Rack pad.

- Fixed a crash that could occur when moving a track with an automated parameter that is also MIDI mapped.

- In very rare cases, Live would crash when running extremely loud signals through Overdrive.

- Custom Min/Max values for MIDI- or key-mapped parameters on VST plug-ins would be lost after saving and reloading the Set.

- When using clip envelopes to modulate the parameters of third-party plug-ins, the modulation range would be broken after saving and reloading the Set. (http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php? ... 78&start=0)

- Some Sets which were saved in earlier versions of Live could not be opened in recent versions.

- In certain cases, launching a warped audio clip would play the unwarped version simultaneously.

- In certain cases, clips would not blink properly when using Follow Actions with launch quantization set to None. (http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=140427)

- Dragging a sample onto the waveform of an existing clip in Session view would reset the Launch settings of the clip.

- In some cases, Gate launch mode for Session view clips would not behave correctly.

- In certain cases, conflicting fade and volume envelopes would inadvertently mute audio clips in the Arrangement.

- In certain cases, loud clicks could occur when using crossfades in the Arrangement.

- When recording into the Arrangement, clicks could occur when "Create Fades on Clip Edges" was enabled.

- In certain cases, clicks could occur when turning on the filter in Sampler/Simpler while holding a note.

- The faders on the Mackie Control would not behave correctly when volume is automated in Live.

- In certain cases, when recording a clip in Session View, the APC40 would not flash red to reflect the state of the clip. (http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=133154)

- Fixed a bug that would cause automation to always be overridden when using Ultra Analog. This would result in the Back to Arrangement button becoming active.

- In some cases, the dialog box that should show trial options when starting Live without an authorization would be empty instead.

- In certain cases, a dialog about temporary files would be shown even though there were no temporary files.

- On OS X, missing media files without a file extension could not be replaced.

- Live now ignores invalid MIDI data (for example, MIDI CC values that don't exist.)

- Various other stability improvements

Thanks Dennis. fwiw- I have been using 8.1.3 since it's release and have loaded up some pretty quirky 3rd party plugins lately and I have had a very hard time getting them to crash Live. Keep honing my favorite audio production tool.

That means you're no longer forced to update to each new beta. Its optional.
But apparently it asks if you want to check for new version on each launch.

Request: Always check for updates option.

I have the suite as well... all my suite features are still available and licensed when installing a beta. About/Version will not show SUITE when using a beta. But you still have all the SUITE features.

Same with IK Multimedia Sampletank. I first reported this to Ableton and IK Multimedia about a year ago. Lots of denial and finger pointing, but no real progress. Can you guys please talk to each other and sort this out?
