Ableton has released Creative Extensions, a new Pack for Live 10 Suite that stretches sound creation and transformation possibilities in Live to new boundaries.
Eight new tools that add punch, color and texture to Live – Creative Extensions is a new Pack included in Live 10 Suite made for experimentation, sound processing and generative composition.
Creative Extensions includes:
- 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.
Owners of Live 10 Suite or Live 10 Standard and Max for Live can download Creative Extensions directly from the Packs section in the Live 10 browser by clicking the download icon, then clicking Install. It is also available for download from the web by logging in to your account at Ableton.com.
