Over the last few years, the hype around any sort of data collection grew exponential, and at the same time privacy became more and more important. Since these two facts do not fit together without strict rules, it takes a serious amount of time just to keep under control what data is collected by third-party APIs and if these data are used in accordance with the given law and our privacy rules. Time that would be way better invested in new features, improvements, or in new applications.
The other updates are:
Upgraded to the latest Ableton Link 3.0.1 API: Now supporting start/stop sync
New 'Lock' feature (Pattern Set): If enabled, you can make real-time changes to Patterns during live sessions without permanently changing the actual Pattern in the Pattern Set
