Ableton Launches Creative Extensions


Ableton has released a free pack of instruments and effects for owners of Live 10 Suite. Creative Extensions includes eight tools “designed for new sound design capabilities” in the latest version of the DAW, which was released earlier this year.

Inside the pack are two “revamped” Max for Live synths, a device for creating “reverb-like spaces”, tools for pitch-shifting, studio processing and sequencing melodies and delays. All are available for download in the Packs section of the Live browser.

The Creative Extensions include:

• Melodic Steps – a fast and intuitive MIDI sequencer for shifting, polyrhythmic melodies with an interface designed to encourage experimentation and new discoveries through play.

• Bass – a monophonic virtual analog synthesizer for bass sounds from classically deep and clean to heavily distorted, rumbling tones.

• Poli – a virtual analog synth for classic polyphonic textures. Its vintage character comes from de-tunable oscillators, a powerful modulation section, built-in chorus and more.

• Pitch Hack – a multi-purpose pitch effect for creative sound mangling. Reverse audio, randomize the transposition interval and fold the delayed signal back into itself.

• Gated Delay – a sequenced delay for rhythmic effects. Reverse and add variation or turn your sound into something completely new.

• Color Limiter – another flavor of limiting inspired by the gritty sounds of hardware limiters. Great for adding pressure and intensity to breaks and beats, and for putting a vintage stamp on any sound.

• Re-Enveloper – a multiband envelope processor to highlight the details you want in a track and reduce the ones you don’t. Cleanup, carve and compress transients to fit your mix or completely destroy the original character of a sound.

• Spectral Blur – a reverb-like texturalizer that adds an ethereal spectral wash to any sound. Use it to create odd sounding Rooms, or infinite, distant spaces.
