K-Devices has updates its AutoBeat and Herse Max for Live devices to version 1.1.
You know, our goal as M4L developers is to release always new cool devices and continuously improve and update the existing ones.
Today we have good news, wether you already got our packs at Ableton shop, or not.
If you already own AutoBeat or Herse, well, it’s time to download again: we just release 1.1 version for both, and of course, they are free for you ;)
The updates improve the devices and add extra contents… Of course the new versions are retro-compatible with your existing presets.
If you didn’t get your hands on AutoBeat or Herse yet, this is the time: with the current -20% offer at Ableton shop, you can grab these amazing devices for, let’s say that, a ridiculous price: AutoBeat is 23€/31$ instead of 29€/39$, Herse 15€/23$ instead of 19€/29$.

Loop Loft Weekend Sale
- Indie Rock Drums – $19.50 (regular $39 USD).
We get it. You’re an indie artist and you’re not looking for over-produced drum loops that sound like outtakes from a 1987 Bon Jovi session. This is exactly why we’ve created our latest collection, Indie Rock Drums.
