Ableton Live 12.1 Adds a Drum Sampler and New Features

Ableton's updated to 12.1 bringing significant updates and improvements to the workflow. Here's a summary

Auto Shift In Ableton

Auto shift gives users real-time pitch correction for vocals. Ableton LIve makes it easy to select a scale and make sure every not is in tune. In addition you can add Vibrato. Here's a clip going over it:

Drum Sampler Now Included in Ableton Live

The Drum Sampler gives producers some much needed manipulation tools for drum samples ( or any samples really).  Stretch, loop, edit, cut, FM and ring modulation, and layer a sub oscillator (our favorite). Add in noise, punch, crush the sounds. Tons of features to edit and manipulate your samples. Here's a great clip of what you can do:

Auto Tagging Samples

I love this. I'm terrible at managing files and naming all samples in a way that makes sense. Having software automatically tag and organize samples is a game changer . Less time managing the software and more time making music.

MIDI Improvements

The MIDI Editor comes with a new toolbar allowing producers to filter and select MIDI notes by time, pitch, velocity and a number of other features.

Other Improvements In Ableton Live 12.1

Ableton Live 12 comes with more features to create with Push as well an impvoed Limiter and Saturator.
