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. 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.
Create synthesized drum and percussion sounds using the DS10 device collection. Modulate device parameters with the LFO. Trigger an envelope with incoming MIDI notes to modulate device parameters. Assign parameters to the pattern-based shaper with step length, groove features and more.
Creative Extensions — Tools for experimentation Creative Extensions comprises eight tools designed to create new sound design capabilities in Live. This collection includes characterful and creative studio processing, a device that creates reverb-like spaces, new ways to pitch shift and sequence delays and melodies, and two flexible synths. Creative Extensions A single delay line with transposition control, as well as the ability to reverse audio, randomize the transposition interval and fold the delayed signal back into itself.
A delay with a gate sequencer that sends the incoming signal to a delay line on activated steps. Much like a send effect that is turned on and off in a defined rhythm. A fast and intuitive MIDI sequencer for evolving melodies with an interface designed to encourage experimentation and new discoveries through play. Another flavor of limiting inspired by the gritty sounds achievable with hardware limiters.
The Saturation and Color parameters are the key to its characterful sound. Creates sounds and textures best described as reverb-like.
A user-defined frequency range of a signal is blurred to create a dense, cloud of sound. A multiband envelope processor that divides the signal into three adjustable frequency bands. Attack and Release knobs control the responsiveness of the effect. A virtual analog synth designed for classic polyphonic chords and phrases.
Its vintage character comes from de-tunable oscillators, a powerful modulation section and built-in chorus. A monophonic virtual analog synthesizer that provides the entire palette of bass sounds in one device — from classically deep and clean to heavily distorted, rumbling tones. 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. 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. All changes in Live 10 Arrangement Warped Arrangement audio clips can now be stretched by holding down Shift while dragging their border. When using Reverse on a partially-selected clip in Arrangement, only the selected part is reversed.
Arrangement clips can now be moved by dragging the upper half of the clip content area. Clip fades are now always available, if the track is at least three units tall. Previously, the entire clip would be de activated, even if only part of it was selected. Previously, the shortcut could only enable the Arrangement Loop, but not disable it. The file will be inserted either where at the Insert Marker position Arrangement View or in the currently selected empty clip slot Session View.
The Shift key is the new global Mac and Windows fine-tune modifier. Improved the performance of dragging and dropping clips in the Arrangement. Automation Introduced a global automation mode.
When the automation lanes are visible. Breakpoints now snap to the grid when they are moved. When breakpoints are created close to a grid line, they now automatically snap to the grid. Automation values are now displayed when hovering over a breakpoint, or dragging any of the following: It is now possible to move automation segments horizontally.
Pressing Shift while moving a breakpoint or segment of automation locks the movement either horinzontally or vertically depending on the direction of the initial movement. A vertical editing helper line now appears when moving breakpoints in the Arrangement View or Detail View. While creating an automation breakpoint in a time selection, the time selection disappears, which enables moving the newly-created breakpoint. It is also possible to split, deactivate, reverse and crop clips within a time selection while in automation mode.
It is now possible to install and update Packs from within the Browser. When previewing samples in the browser, one-shot samples preview un-quantized.
Files can be dragged and dropped onto the User Library, Current Project and user folders in the Sidebar directly. Introduced Echo, a new audio effect device for Live. Echo is a modulation delay that is capable of a wide range of sounds, from tape-saturated and bucket-brigade styles, right through to modern, clean and digital delays.
Echo includes an LFO that modulates filter frequency and delay time, and an envelope follower that can be blended with the LFO. Noise and Wobble parameters simulate sound artifacts found in vintage delays. Also included are a distortion switch, a reverb, stereo width control, a ducking compressor, a gate, a feedback signal inversion switch, and a toggle for repitching and crossfading repeats.
Introduced Drum Buss, a new audio effect for Live. An analog-style drum processor, Drum Buss is designed to add body and character to a group of drums, while gluing them together in a tight mix. Drum Buss combines the most used drum processing tools into a single device, which includes distortion, a compressor, low-frequency enhancement, a transient shaper and a control for dampening high frequency response.
Introduced Pedal, a new audio effect device for Live. Pedal is a guitar distortion effect that can also be used in less conventional settings, e. Pedal has three different modes: Overdrive, Distortion and Fuzz. Each mode was inspired by distortion pedals with their own distinct sonic characteristics, including: Introduced the improved Utility device for Live.
Furthermore, the layout has been redesigned to fit new features, including a Mono switch, a Bass Mono switch, a Bass Mono Frequency slider, a Bass Mono Audition button, and a Balance knob control which replaces the Panorama slider. Older Sets will continue to sound the same due to an added legacy mode. Older Utility devices can be upgraded via a button in the title bar.
When loading a short sample into an empty Simpler instance, Warp and Loop are now deactivated: Additionally, when a sample is already loaded into Simpler, replacing it with a new one will retain all the previous settings related to warping or looping.
Up to 10 old versions of the Set are stored in this folder. When saving a Live Set, the undo history is no longer cleared. The original file and history position are remembered when creating, loading and saving a Live set and the information is used to restore the Live set after a crash. Improved naming and sorting of recorded audio files, by attaching a timestamp to the filename.
Added various changes for Windows Live now supports Jump Lists in the Start menu and Taskbar. It is now possible to associate. Large Live Sets can now be closed times faster. Improved the speed of loading samples referenced by a Live Set. This reduces the Live Set loading time considerably. Interface Introduced the new Ableton Sans font in Live. Updated the appearance of clips in both Session and Arrangement View.
Added several visual improvements for Windows: When the Alt key is pressed, no letters in the menu bar are underlined anymore. Enabled sample dots on the waveforms. When zooming in, users can now more closely see where their samples are on the Time Ruler.
This is achieved via a context menu by right-clicking on the plug-in device either in the browser or in the Detail View. If the setting is disabled, the plug-in will appear much smaller in size, but this helps in cases where the mouse would behave erratically when trying to interact with the plug-in UI. Context menu items now react when the mouse is released, instead of after the initial mouse click.
This makes it possible to drag away from a selection to cancel triggering an item, while keeping the context menu open. Link You can now start or stop multiple Link-running applications at the same time, both on a single device and across multiple devices.
Max for Live Max is now bundled in Live, and no longer requires a separate installation. Max has been optimized so that devices load faster and use less CPU. Max is now loaded at startup, instead of when the first Max device is loaded. Added a set of Max for Live control and modulation devices to the Core Library. This includes: Envelope, Expression Control, Note Echo. DS Kick.
