Dear music maker,
For now, we’re apart. But the shared experience of music-making is something that can keep us together in spirit. All of us at Ableton are now working from home as well, and music – now more than ever – is helping us stay on track.
If you’re also looking for ways to keep making music at home, Ableton has some ideas:
Update: April 22, 2020
- Vibrations by ModeAudio is a free collection of loops, samples, and Instrument and Effect Racks.
April 8, 2020
- We’ve reduced the price on all editions of Live by 30%. This offer includes new licenses as well as upgrades. Log in to see your available upgrades. Available until May 20.
- In collaboration with Max for Cats and Sonic Bloom, we’ve made the Stray Cats Collection, a free Pack of Max for Live devices. (Note: this Pack requires Max for Live, which is included in Live Suite or available for purchase for Live Standard.)
- Our book, Making Music: 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers, is temporarily free to download in .pdf, .mobi, and .epub format.
- With Loop delayed until 2021, we’ll bring a bit of that community to you at home. We’re planning three days of curated live streams and daily music-making challenges, as well as a place to discuss the process of making music and share results. Save the dates: April 24-26.
April 2, 2020
The Live 10 trial period has been temporarily increased to 90 days, giving you more time to play with all the features of Ableton Live Suite. Active trials will automatically be extended. And anyone who has used the trial before can now use it again.
The Spectral Textures Pack is now free. New sounds can bring new ideas, so we’ll be offering more free sounds soon.
Our Learning Music and Learning Synths websites are free resources that run on any internet-connected device running a modern web browser. These sites offer an interactive introduction to music-making concepts.
There’s more coming, and we’ll regularly update this page. Plus, keep an eye on our social media channels where we’ll be highlighting great music-making and inspiration as we find it.
