If you own Ableton Live 10 Suite or the standard version of Live 10 and Max For Live, you’ll be pleased to learn that Ableton is offering you a free bundle of eight tools known collectively as Creative Extensions.
On the synth side of things, you get two revamped Max for Live instruments: the Bass monophonic virtual analogue synth, which now includes tunable oscillators, and the Poli virtual analogue synth that’s designed for chords and phrases. This offers detunable oscillators, a modulation section, a chorus effect and more.
Elsewhere, Melodic Steps is a MIDI sequencer that’s designed to encourage experimentation, while Pitch Hack offers a single delay line with transposition control. You also get the Gated Delay, Color Limiter and Re-Enveloper - a multiband envelope processor. Finally, Spectral Blur enables you to create ‘reverb-like’ textures.
Those entitled to the Creative Extensions can download them for free from the Live 10 browser or their account on the Ableton website. They’re also included with Live 10 Suite.
