Live 10 is coming!

Ableton announced today that the highly-anticipated next version is slated for release in the first quarter of 2018.

There’s a lot to be excited about – Four new instrument and effect devices and a fresh sound library will give producers an even broader sonic palette straight out of the box.

Integration with the Push has gone deeper, and major refinements to how producers interact with the software will make music creation even more efficient.

Video sneak peek

While Live 10 is still in beta, we were lucky enough to get a little preview. We gathered the Liveschool crew to make some music and put the new features to the test. Check it out below:


Event: Live 10 – First Look

For those in Sydney, we’re hosting a Live 10 demo session to showcase the inspiring capabilities of the software.

What’s New

The New Ableton Live 10 Devices

Wavetable: A new synth capable of some seriously rich and complex sounds. It features a variety of waveforms from analog synths and a range of other instruments, as well as modeled analog filters, and heaps of modulation.

Drum Buss: An all-in-one drum sculpting tool. Its parameters can add drive and warmth, control transients, and will be indispensable for shaping the low end of drum channels.

Echo: A go-to tool for reverbs and delays, Echo delivers sounds ranging from classic analog and digital textures to diffused soundscapes, wailing feedback and other experimental atmospheres.

Pedal: Ableton Live gets a guitar stompbox. Pedal has three separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz pedals. Not just for your axe, it’s great for warming up vocals, driving synth sounds or smashing drums.

Next level workflow

A whole lot of tweaks make working with Live 10 a breeze. Just to name a few:

  • The long-requested ability to create groups within groups, making organising complicated Live sets even easier.
  • Multi MIDI clip editing means you can see more than one clip within the same window, making for better control and visual understanding of the relationships between parts.
  • Warping and reversing audio clips directly on the channel in arrangement view.
  • Further integration for the Push, including a new step sequencer, better visual feedback for Ableton devices, and improvements to functionality for a more fluid writing process.
