So what's new in Ableton Live 5.2.2?
Live 5.2.2 provides Axiom (check em out here). users with instant and automatic control of many of Live's features via built-in control mapping. When users select an Axiom keyboard as a remote control surface in Live's preferences, the Axiom automatically locks in to provide full control of Live's Session and Arrangement Views, effects and devices. Once locked in, the Axiom follows the musician's focus, providing fast, sure control wherever they're working in the Live interface.
