Ableton to release Live 10 in 2018
Ableton has announced that the much-anticipated next version of Live, the company's software for music creation and performance, will be available in the first quarter of 2018. Live 10 introduces four new Devices, a completely redesigned sound library, workflow-accelerating refinements and more.
New Devices, new sounds
A new instrument and three new effects bring a broader, bolder palette of sound to Live.
Wavetable is Ableton’s new synth. Its vast sonic palette is created with a variety of waveforms derived from analogue synths and a range of other instruments and sounds, as well as modelled analogue filters, and deep, flexible modulation. Wavetable position can be controlled by the aftertouch on our Launchpad Pro controller. Learn more about Launchpad Pro
Echo delivers sounds from classic analogue and digital textures to diffused soundscapes, wailing feedback and other experimental atmospheres. Drum Buss is an all-in-one drum sculpting tool for adding warmth, adjusting transient response, injecting low end and more. Echo and Drum Buss can be sequenced by our Circuit sequencer, synth and sampler. Learn more about Circuit
Pedal features three separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals. Not just for guitars, it excels at warming up vocals, driving synth sounds or smashing drums. Pedal can be played by our Launchkey controllers. Learn more about Launchkey
Faster music creation
Live 10 offers a multitude of workflow refinements and entirely new features that make working with ideas easier at every stage of the creative process.
Capture recalls an idea after it has been played and turns it into a MIDI clip with feel and groove intact – a fast, intuitive way to turn spontaneous inspiration into music.
New library of sound
With a redesigned Core Library and all-new Packs, Live 10 has more inspiring sounds that are ready for music-making, right out of the box.
