11. When holding down a step in a step sequencer, you can edit
the length of MIDI notes in steps (coarse) and in percent (fine).
The length of the edited note is also reflected on the button
12. You can delete all notes on the same pitch within the current
loop by holding down the delete button and then pressing the
respective pad. This works in Note mode and also for playable
13. The "Fixed Length" setting is now respected

Audio Quality, Rendering, and
1. Better quality audio when exporting
from higher to lower sample rates -
for instance, going from 96kHz to
2. When exporting audio files from Live with the option "Create
Analysis File" enabled, Live will now save warp markers with the
.asd file, so that information about the original tempo and tempo
changes are correctly reused when re-importing the audio file into
Live later on.
3. Rendering now uses multiple cores,
which can result in much faster
4. The 'Export Audio / Video' export
dialog has been improved.
It shows the same options whether
launched from Session or Arrangement

been regrouped to provide a better
"All Tracks" has been renamed to
"Individual Tracks" in the "Rendered Track"
The export dialog now shows
information about the source and target
5. The audio buffer size is now restricted to power-of-two values. Windows users
should note that not all ASIO drivers support this and may still allow to use non
power-of-two values. This can lead to a higher CPU load and higher latencies.
Ableton recommends to always use power-of-two buffer sizes, i.e. 64, 128,
256, 512,... samples.

Minor improvements for usage
When creating a new track by dragging an instrument to the
clip/device drop area, Live would keep the last selected clip
stand-by-selected. Now it moves the selection to the clip slot
that matches the Session View's crosshair.
