What's New
Version 1.3.4:
  • Live 9 Max For Live plugin mode only:
    • Scale Selector: Generate melodic patterns by hiding away note lanes not in a specific key. Select root, mode, and octaves.
    • Lock Clip button (from the Clip Selector) added to the Ableton Push layout.
    • Improved performance when switching Live clips and loading larger Live clips in Liquid Rhythm.
    • Clip selector feature is accessible when no clip in selected within Ableton.
    • Liquid Rhythm.amxd patch now has a very small version number printed in the bottom right corner.
    • Untitled Live clips now display as track name and clip number in Liquid Rhythm.
    • Hitting User mode in Ableton Push to gain access to Liquid Rhythm features will perform an auto-refresh to capture any changes made to the clip.
  • Kit Editor: Organize and save instruments together as a Kit in Liquid Rhythm. (Available in the Kit Tab in the Library Browser, and the View Menu.)
  • The Randomizer panel’s fourth slider can now be used to control randomization of Velocity, Groove Offset, or Both together, via a dropdown menu.
  • In Diagnostics tab, enabling Diagnostic logging has been changed from a drop-down to a checkbox for ease of selection.
  • Added the option to swap between eighth-note and quarter-note based indicators in the BeatBuilder. (Right-Click on the numbers above the BeatForm Sequencer or BarForm List to choose.)
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the first light in the step sequencer to not illuminate on the Push during playback.
  • Fixed an issue causing MIDI exports to double the .mid extension.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause a crash when dragging BeatForms from the BeatForm Palette while the Accent Modifiers had a non-zero groove setting.
  • Changing clip name within Liquid Rhythm is now undo/redoable.
  • The connection between Liquid Rhythm’s UI and the Audio Engine has been improved to avoid startup issues. (Better cleanup strategy on launch.)
  • Fixed an issue caused by using the GrooveMover to change the Barform color pattern and later using the BeatBuilder’s next/previous Barform buttons.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the "Focus Region follows Playhead" command to not handle loops less than a bar in length.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause Liquid Rhythm to enter into a bad state when unlocking a Live clip with the Clip Selector.
  • Fixed the option to trigger playback of a Live clip from the Clip Selector.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause Ableton Push to receive updates from Liquid Rhythm when not in User Mode.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent Beat Sequencer preferences from saving.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause track headers to lose their colour when deleting multiple tracks and then choosing undo.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the ruler bar to display an incorrect bar number (off-by-one).
  • Audio Export remembers settings, and it is saved with the project. But it could contain stale track information if a track exported was later deleted. This is now fixed.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the file chooser dialog box to appear behind Liquid Rhythm on Windows.

I used to spend hours wondering about and tweaking different variations of drum patterns to find a pattern to best compliment my bass lines. This software making so many decisions for you. If there was a rating for "Time Saver" I would give it 5 stars.

Liquid Rhythm is an innovative beat generator that enables users to access ten quadrillion rhythmic patterns, import pre-existing tracks created using their DAW of choice, or mine Liquid Rhythm's library of loops and kits to create uniquely natural-sounding rhythm tracks quickly and easily. Users can develop their musical ideas by instantly inserting and swapping bar-long rhythm patterns using Liquid Rhythm's BeatBuilder tools. The BeatWeaver allows users to generate genre-specific musically informed rhythm patterns from a customizable palette. Users can create beats fast by painting groups of notes directly into the arranger, and edit the velocity and groove of multiple notes simultaneously based on underlying colour-patterns. Liquid Rhythm integrates into a variety of workflows as a VST, AU, or RTAS plugin, and functions as a clip editor in Ableton Live 9 via Max for Live.

WaveDNA has also released Liquid Rhythm Intro, a condensed version of Liquid Rhythm software for greater accessibility. Visit the developer's Web site to compare the features and pricing.

You can watch an introductory video on Liquid Rhythm on YouTube, or you can view additional video and help documentation on the developer's Web site.
