Added support for Novation Impulse controllers.


In Live 8.2.5, it was not possible to try Amp or Max for Live.


Live 8.2.5 notes

Live 8.2.5 introduces compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

Note for Max for Live users: please update to Max 5.1.9 to ensure Max for Live compatibility with OS X 10.7 Lion.

Improvements and feature changes

- MIDI sync has been improved when Live is a MIDI clock slave
- Imported tracks (from the Live Browser) now route to Master if their original output routing can't be resolved, instead of "Sends Only."
- The default for the Takeover mode in the MIDI Preferences is now Value Scaling instead of Pick-up.
- We now prevent choosing the root of the system hard drive (or the Windows system folders on Windows machines) as the third-party plugin location. - Doing that would crash Live on startup, because these folders contain files that are interpreted as third-party plugins.
