The long wait is finally coming to an end because Ableton Live 10 is set be released in the first quarter of 2018! Ableton has finally revealed some of the new features that’ll be available in its next major update, and let me tell you…
It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or experienced producer, you’ll be able to take full advantage of its workflow improvements, new sounds, new devices, and creative tools.
Be sure to check out this 2 minute overview by Ableton, but we’ll do a slightly more in-depth review in this article.
Ableton Live 10 – Echo
Echo is a modulation delay capable of recreating multiple styles of sounds, from vintage tape saturation to ultra clean digital delays – and everything in between!
This exciting new device also includes a distortion unit, a reverb, stereo width control, a ducking compressor, a gate and many more parameters that will allow you almost ENDLESS delay modulation capabilities.
Ableton Live 10 – Pedal
Pedal, like its name implies, is a guitar pedal distortion effect with separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals. This audio effect will put the character of analog stomp boxes in the palm of your hands!
This audio effect can be used just as you would use Ableton’s Saturator, and Pedal excels at warming up vocals, live instruments, driving synth sounds, or completely smashing drums.
Ableton Live 10 – Drum Buss
We’re almost certain that Drum Buss will become a personal favorite for many producers when it comes out. Drum Buss is essentially a unique audio effect modeled after analog style drum processors, designed to change the character of a group of drums.
It will glue them together and you’ll be able to add a wide variety of effects — subtly or completely distort them — since it combines the most used audio processing tools for drums into a single unit.
Ableton Live 10 – Wavetable
As its name implies, Wavetable is Ableton’s brand new wavetable synthesizer.Serum and Massive are wavetable synthesizers and Ableton is now joining the competition. You’ll be able to morph sounds using wavetables derived from analog synths, a range of other instruments, and sounds.
