Operator

by Ableton

Operator is a versatile, easy-to-use and great-sounding software instrument combining classic analog sounds and frequency modulation synthesis, perfectly integrated in Live's award-winning interface.

In-depth

Operator is a powerful instrument that brings an eclectic spectrum of sonic possibilities and musical inspiration to Ableton Live users. True to the Ableton philosophy, Operator invites creativity through a fusion of depth and usability, allowing even the most complex sounds to be created quickly. Whether you long for evolving synthetic textures, rich expressive leads, gritty percussion, rhythmic atmospheres or anything in between, Operator has the cure.

Hearing is Believing

Operator delivers a wide range of sonic possibilities through an extensive array of synthesis tools. Powerful analog-style subtractive synthesis and detailed FM effects are all possible due to Operator's hybrid approach to synthesis.

Operator's dynamic collection of musical presets was created by an expert team of sound designers to be versatile, inspiring and immediately playable. As you will soon hear, punchy basses, soaring leads, pulsating rhythmic effects, smooth pads, faithful digital emulations and even classic analog percussion can all be achieved with Operator.

New in Operator

Operator, Ableton's renowned do-it-all synthesizer, has been given a major overhaul with Live 8. We opened up the hood, took a long hard look inside and did some serious hot-rod stuff. New filter types, more modulation routing options and additive wavetable synthesis with drawable partials make Operator more powerful and flexible than ever. Watch the movie to see what's new...
