Long-Awaited Ableton Live 10 Will Have a Ton of New Features

Music production software developer, Ableton, has announced Live 10 — the long-awaited upgrade to Live 9 that came out a little more than four years ago. Live 10 introduces four bold devices, new features, an expanded sound library, and some significant improvements that keep you in the flow while you’re producing.

Here are some of the glorious updates you’ll find in Live 10:

Easier workflow

With features like Capture, you can turn ideas into music – without thinking about recording. How? Just hit Capture after you’ve played your new idea. There are also other improvements to Live 10 that help you stay in the flow at every stage of your creative process, like the ability to work with multiple MIDI clips across multiple tracks within a single view.

A few impressive workflow refinements include:

  • Color-coded and easy-to-access browser collections
  • Note chasing with note triggering
  • I/O Renaming to instantly select routing
  • Mixing improvements
  • Simpler overview with ability to create multiple levels of groups 
  • Refined interface with cleaner, clearer graphics

New devices

With a range of new devices, Live 10 encourages you to incorporate new, colorful sounds into your mixes. New devices include Wavetable, Echo, Drum Buss and Pedal. Get creative with Live 10’s upgraded instruments and effects.

Push improvements

Live 10 brings new functionality and new high-res visualizations to Push, the expressive controller that gives you an unlimited palette of sounds with 64 pads. 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 sounds

Live 10 has a brand-new collection of sound packs that are ready for finished music, right out of the box. Plus the library has been reorganized to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.

Built in Max Technology

Max technology for Live provides powerful devices, such as a convolution reverb, step sequencer and more – like a toolbox to build your own instruments and effects. In Live 10, Max is fully integrated and built in, so there’s no additional download or set up required. 

Ableton users will surely rejoice at all the exciting upgrades featured in Live 10. Download versions will be priced at the same level as Live 9:

Live Intro – $99
Live Standard – $449
Live Suite – $749
