Ableton Announces Live 10
Ableton has just announced Live 10, the successor to Live 9 which came out in 2013. There are a lot of noteworthy changes coming to the popular music production software, including four new plugins: Wavetable, Echo, Drum Buss and Pedal.
Wavetable is a synthesizer that Ableton believes will be “immediately playable” even without a deep knowledge of synths. Echo is a delay unit that will allow “the sound of classic analog and digital hardware delays in a single device.” Drum Buss is an all-in-one drum workstation and Pedal “excels at warming up vocals and other instruments.”
Besides the new plugins, Ableton has added new functions to allow for a more streamlined and continuous workflow. The Capture function allows for users to turn spontaneous ideas into music by matching the user’s tempo and timing and playing the melody in a perfect loop after the fact. Users can also edit multiple MIDI tracks in a single view in Live 10.
These along with the new and updated devices from Live 10 seem to cater to those who wanted a cleaner and more refined software. There is plenty more to learn about Live 10 and you can do so by going to Ableton’s website here.
