Looks like a great upgrade. MPE support is huge, especially as it enables poly-aftertouch on Push. Some of the new devices look great, they’ve added note probability, and it can follow your audio tempo. Will definitely be upgrading – I have Bitwig but haven’t invested the time to learn it and don’t really like the interface, so will be sticking with Live I reckon thanks to this update.

great news! the multiple takes feature, the macro scenes and the improved sequencer are really really welcome!
comping, probability and advanced follow actions are most interesting to me.
Not sure if I should upgrade but as I know myself I probably will
yeah the comping alone is worth the upgrade for me
Love the Bouncy Notes sequencer idea!
Haven’t quite got around to getting Live 10 yet
Nooo just bought 10 recently!
Wow, amazing with MPE compability.
Looking good! Any news on how much the upgrade path will be for existing Live 10 users?
150 euro’s for me
Edit: meh honestly I’m personally only into the chance feature, so 150 euros is a bit or a stretch. But happy for all you guys to have your wishes granted!
How recently? Might be worth contacting their support and see if they can do anything, you never know. That sucks but I guess you win some and lose some…
Btw, the site FAQs says it will be released in the first quarter of 2021, but there’s no firm release date as yet. Also, there’s an offer for 20% off Live 10 with a free upgrade to Live 11 when it’s released.
So, just pre-ordered for 159€, but do not need to pay now.
They will send an email once Live 11 is relased for paying.
Wow comping, huge workflow improvement, really didn’t expect this feature… Notes and velocity probability are very welcome additions too, especially here
MPE will surely make many users happy but I couldn’t care less.
The new Fxs feel quite cheap to me also… Like something you’d download from M4L and forget about within 2 months ?
What about the relative pace of this new release, Live 10 is only 2 years old and still 10.1 while 9 lasted at least 5 years and got to .7 if I remember correctly?
Upgrade would be 159€ for me, I’m a bit pissed to be honest but I will probably do it.
EDIT : They’ve finally reworked that lamy Reverb (Valhalla style + Convolution), Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, and Redux…
- (not so) cosmetic upgrade of Collision, Corpus, Tension and Electric.
Agreed. When I was a music technology journalist during the Live 7 period, I specifically remember Ableton saying they will keep new versions to a minimum and will instead work on making it completely stable. Personally, this doesn’t feel like it warrants a new version number, but maybe a 10.5 halfway house release that could’ve been offered at a discounted rate compared to a brand new release. No new instruments for Suite users, for instance, unless I missed something?
Edit: the upgrade price isn’t too bad actually
Happy for you guys!
There is nothing too exciting for my personal taste to take the splunge but that is - yes - a matter of personal needs and wishes.
And in the end I will upgrade nonetheless …
A mixed bag for me. MPE is huge though just a shame some of the other stuff isn’t as big a deal. Makes cut a nicer playground though with the probability and new FX stuff.
£143 upgrade isn’t too bad overall…
