Ableton live 10 features
Create with new devices
Meet Wavetable, Echo, Drum Buss and Pedal: new devices that mean colorful new sounds are possible with Live’s instruments and effects.
Immediately playable, infinitely capable, Wavetable is a new synthesizer built by Ableton. Shape, stretch and morph sounds using wavetables derived from analog synths, and a range of other instruments and sounds. Start sculpting sounds right away—even without a deep knowledge of synthesis—or explore its rich palette and potential through an intuitive interface.
Echo brings together the sound of classic analog and digital hardware delays in a single device—your new go-to delay. Drive and shape sounds with its analog-modeled filters, turn up the noise and wobble for vintage imperfections, or add modulation and reverb to create diffuse soundscapes, wailing feedback and more.
Drum Buss is a one-stop workstation for drums, capable of adding subtle character or bending and breaking drums to your will. Add warmth and distortion with drive and crunch, take control of dynamics with compression and transient shaping, dial in and tune boom and control bass decay with the dedicated low end section.
With separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals, Pedal brings the character of analog stomp boxes to Live. The effect goes all the way from subtle to reckless—it excels at warming up vocals and other instruments, driving synth sounds or completely smashing drums. And of course, it sounds great with guitars.
Authorizing Live Offline
If you cannot successfully authorize online, or if your computer is not connected to the internet, you can follow these steps to authorize Live offline:
- First, install Live on the computer that you wish to use it on.
- When starting Live, you will see an authorization dialog. Click on “No Internet on this computer”:
- Live will display another window in which the hardware code of your computer is shown, as well as further information regarding the Offline Authorization process:
Note down the hardware code (you’ll need to enter this number in your Ableton.com account). You can also save this information as a text file to make it easier to find later (just click on “Save…” on the bottom right corner).
Once you’re logged in, select your Ableton license from the list (in case you only have one license registered, selecting a license is not necessary) and click “authorize offline”.
Enter your hardware code from Live and click “Download”. The Ableton server will generate an authorization (.auz) file for the computer you want to authorize.
If using an offline machine, you can save the authorization file to your portable storage device and bring it back to the computer where Live is installed.
Open Live and double click the .auz file or drag it onto the authorization dialog
If you need to find your hardware code again, the offline authorization dialog can also be found within the Live Preferences’ “License / Maintenance” tab:
