    • Ableton Live 10 Suite Upgrade from Live Lite Features:

      Create with new devices

      Meet Wavetable, Echo, Drum Buss and Pedal: new devices that mean colorful new sounds are possible with Live’s instruments and effects.

      Wavetable

      Immediately playable, infinitely capable, Wavetable is a new synthesizer built by Ableton. Shape, stretch and morph sounds using wavetables derived from analog synths, and a range of other instruments and sounds. Start sculpting sounds right away—even without a deep knowledge of synthesis—or explore its rich palette and potential through an intuitive interface.

      Echo

      Echo brings together the sound of classic analog and digital hardware delays in a single device—your new go-to delay. Drive and shape sounds with its analog-modeled filters, turn up the noise and wobble for vintage imperfections, or add modulation and reverb to create diffuse soundscapes, wailing feedback and more.

      Drum Buss

      Drum Buss is a one-stop workstation for drums, capable of adding subtle character or bending and breaking drums to your will. Add warmth and distortion with drive and crunch, take control of dynamics with compression and transient shaping, dial in and tune boom and control bass decay with the dedicated low end section.

      Pedal

      With separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals, Pedal brings the character of analog stomp boxes to Live. The effect goes all the way from subtle to reckless—it excels at warming up vocals and other instruments, driving synth sounds or completely smashing drums. And of course, it sounds great with guitars.

      Stay in the flow

      You’ll find improvements to Live that help you stay in the flow at every stage of your creative process, whether you’re getting ideas down, organizing your setup or editing the details of your music.

      Capture

      Turn your most spontaneous ideas into music, without thinking about recording. Starting a song? Just arm a MIDI track and play. When an idea emerges, press Capture after you played it. Live will match your tempo and timing, and start your melody or groove in a perfect loop. You can also use Capture to progress your songs: add new parts or overdub MIDI into existing clips without breaking your flow—just press Capture after you’ve played it right.

      Edit multiple MIDI clips

      Create drums and bass, or chords and melody in tandem. Work with multiple MIDI clips across multiple tracks within a single view—in both Session and Arrangement. Now you can edit smarter and take better control of the musical relationships in your song.

      Create and arrange more fluidly

      The Arrangement View has been optimized for quick creative editing and more efficient song creation. Easily stretch a clip, slide its content or create audio fades with new clip interactions that work directly in the Arrangement. Automate with greater control using grid snapping and other improved breakpoint interactions.

      Focus instantly on what you need to with quick keyboard shortcuts: toggle automation visibility for all tracks, zoom in and out of selections of your song, nudge clips, and even make audio edits like reversing samples.

      A multitude of workflow refinements

      When it comes to creative flow, sometimes the little things make the biggest difference. Live 10 comes with a long list of them.

      Do even more from Push

      Live 10 brings new functionality and new high-res visualizations to Push. Now you’ll spend even less time with the computer—whether you’re composing ideas, editing MIDI or shaping and mixing sounds.

      New library of sound

      With new collections of Packs, Live 10 has more sounds that are ready for finished music, right out of the box. They’re set up for tweaking to your needs or taking in different directions. Plus the library has been reorganized to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.

      Curated collections

      A new range of sound packs captures the musical threads that tie together evolving styles and scenes. Each Pack is a curated selection of instruments, clips and samples that share a common sonic theme. They’re ready to create with as they are, and are also set up with Macros for shaping into something completely new.

      Essential Instruments

      Built by Ableton in collaboration with artists and sounds designers, Live 10 Suite comes with four new in-depth instrument packs:

      Drum Essentials includes a huge collection of classic electronic kits and hits. Drum Booth brings together all the acoustic drum and percussion sounds you need. Synth Essentials offers expertly programmed presets for Live’s synths alongside multisampled racks of classic hardware. And Electric Keyboards brings the lush multisampled sound of electric pianos and organs to Live’s instrument lineup.

      Max for Live – no limits, built in

      Max technology is now fully integrated into Live 10 Suite. No additional download or set up is required to create with and customize Max For Live devices. They just work. Plus new devices and capabilities bring more possibilities for musicians and device developers.

      Streamlined, faster

      Using Max For Live is simpler, quicker and more reliable. Significant improvements under the hood mean Max For Live devices now load faster, use less CPU and feel more like Live’s native devices.Advanced MIDI–hardware integration

      Max for Live devices can now send and receive SysEx, allowing deeper access to synthesizers—including full preset backup dumps, parameter control and more. Max for Live can also create custom control surfaces for custom hardware integration.

      New and updated devices

      Some of Max for Live’s most popular devices have had major upgrades. Drum Synths have been reworked with a complete sound upgrade and a broader sweet spot. Plus the new LFO and other control devices let you modulate up to eight parameters from a single device.

      Multi-channel audio

      New audio routing capabilities in Max For Live mean mixing for performances, installations and theaters using multi-channel speaker setups is now possible with the included Surround Panner device.
