We aim to ensure that Ableton Live is completely stable music software. Because Live supports so many different workflows and hardware setups there are just too many scenarios for us to test by ourselves – to do so, we need your help. The goal of this beta program is to find and reproduce all unintended behavior in the newest beta version of Live that is not present in the most recent release version.
Your feedback not only helps us improve the current version of Ableton Live but also influences the course of future product development. We also actively recruit internal beta and alpha testers from the most helpful public beta testers.

Live 9.2 in Public Beta
Live 9.2 is coming soon. This free update brings a number of significant improvements and additions to both Live and Push and is available for download as a public beta version.
Live 9.2 introduces several refinements to Live’s audio warping engine. The Complex and Complex Pro modes now feature punchier transients, even at extreme settings. We’ve also improved Auto-Warp and downbeat detection to better recognize when audio has a fixed tempo (as is often the case with electronic music) and warp it accurately.
Live 9.2 also introduces a number of latency-related improvements. Sets that contain Max for Live devices or third-party plug-ins now have lower latency. And automation is now fully latency compensated.
Along with further under-the-hood improvements, Live 9.2 also comes with a new Tuner device – sure to come in handy for guitarists or anyone else who uses hardware instruments.
64 pads for Push users
For users of Push, the Live 9.2 update introduces the ability to use all 64 pads to play drums and quickly flip back to 16 pads for step sequencing. Watch as finger-drummer extraordinaire Mad Zach performs a shape-shifting rhythm workout using all of Push’s pads:
The Live 9.2 update also brings improved aftertouch implementation to Push’s pads and the addition of aftertouch to many of Live’s core library sounds. In addition, Push’s touchstrip can now be used for modulation wheel control as well for pitch bend.
