announces LIVE 10 with a revamped sound library and new devices. Ableton Live 10 is in three editions: Intro, Standard, and Suite. The three editions share common features, but Suite and Standard have additional features, Packs, effects, and instruments.

In this update, four new devices will be included: Pedal, Wavetable, Drum Bass, and Echo. All of these devices will bring serious upgrades to a greater range of digital and analog textures, fresh overdrive effects, new complex modulation capabilities and encapsulating drum processing.


Pedal has separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals that 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, completely smashing drums or driving synth sounds. And definitely, it sounds great with guitars.


Wavetable is a new synthesizer built by Ableton that is infinitely capable and immediately playable. Stretch, shape, and morph sounds using wavetables derived from analog synths, and a range of other sounds and instruments. Even without a deep knowledge of synthesis, you can start sculpting sounds right away.

Drum Buss

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


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

Other exciting features will allow producers to access four new multi-sampled synth packs, rename inputs and outputs to match personal hardware and lodge track groups within other groups.
