The team behind the popular digital audio workstation Ableton always seems to be making improvements to its software, and now the Live 11.1 update has been launched in public beta to make the program even more user-friendly.

The new update sees a myriad of features added to streamline the music production process within Ableton, including native support for Apple brand computers running on the recently introduced M1 Silicon chip.

Ableton's Frequency Shifter received a new mode for real-time monophonic pitch shifting, along with an added envelope section, delay, LFO, and glide functionalities.

The public beta for Ableton's Live 11.1 update is now available.
