    Ableton Live 10 Standard Upgrade from Live Lite, Download

    Ableton Live 10 Standard is your go-to software for fast and flexible music creation.

    Live is fast, fluid music creation and performance software. Use its timeline-based workflow or improvise without constraints in Session View. Advanced Warping lets you change the tempo and timing of any audio in real-time without stopping the music. Record virtual instruments, drum machines, guitars or audio from the real world. Capture MIDI notes after you've played them, turning your most spontaneous ideas (and happy accidents) into music.

    Live's effects, instruments, sounds and creative features let you make music limited only by your imagination. Use Live's native devices as the foundation of sound design or mould and shape something new from a range of carefully curated Packs. Since the software keeps everything in time, Live is also perfect for on-stage improvisation and hands-on play. Customise the software to fit your performance, not the other way around. With Push, Ableton's instrument built specifically for Live, you get all the functionality of software with the immediacy of hardware.

    Create With Live
    No matter how you like to begin, Live helps you get the music in your head out of your speakers.

    Session View lets you sketch ideas lightning fast - play, mix, and match MIDI and audio loops of different lengths and tempos without ever stopping the music. The Arrangement View is where you organise your music along a timeline and build sections of your song. Record an arrangement directly from the Session View and improvise a finished composition.

    Live's synthesizers deliver a vast range of sound using wavetable, FM, analogue and physical modelling architectures. A pair of sampling devices help you squeeze the most out of your drum samples and multi-sampled instruments with built-in slicing, warping and more. Included MIDI effects let you creatively manipulate your notes, while audio effects help you clean up your mix or make a creative mess.

    Live's Core Library comes with every edition of the software and includes vintage synths, analogue drum machines, keys, multi-sampled drums, and much more. 'Curated Collections' are toolkits of curated sounds designed to be shaped into something new.

    Software Without Limits
    Live comes with everything you need but adapts to your unique needs. Map knobs, faders and buttons to nearly any controller to get hands on control of almost every parameter in Live. The software also includes auto-mappings for a growing number of MIDI controllers for instant results.

    Perform With Live
    Trigger, re-sequence and remix your music in real time. Control external hardware and integrate outboard effects. Improvise on your own or process audio played by others.

    Expand your setup and collaborate with others using Link. The technology syncs timing over a network connection, so software like Reason, Serato and an ever-growing number of iOS apps work together in your Live setup.

    Akai APC Mini Control Surface for Ableton Live

    The Akai APC Mini is a highly portable all-in-one Ableton controller.
    In 2009, Akai Professional collaborated with the creators of Ableton Live, a powerful music performance and production software environment, and introduced the original Ableton Performance Controller—APC40. The instrument raised the standards of controller design, revolutionised hardware and software integration, and proved to be an essential performance tool for Ableton Live users everywhere. Now, after incorporating five years of user feedback into their development, Akai Professional builds upon this original partnership by introducing the APC mini.

    Big Surprises Come In Small Packages
    Dexterous, versatile, and powerful, the only thing 'mini' about this Ableton controller is the size. APC mini is the most portable all-in-one Ableton controller solution with Akai Pro build quality. Engineered specifically for the mobile musician and the desktop producer, APC mini concentrates the essential features of the APC40 mkII, Akai Pro's flagship Ableton controller, into a compact design that fits in your backpack. The result is a dynamic instrument that empowers you to make music with Ableton Live—anywhere.

    Get On The Grid
    APC mini features an expanded 8x8 multicolour clip-launching grid that's built for hands-on exploration: launch clips and create or perform your song from the ground up using 64 responsive triggers. Tri-colour lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording—so you can intelligently perform without looking at your computer. Plus, you can use the Shift button and directional arrows to manipulate the scope of the 8x8 grid.

    Fade In, Fade Out
    Nine channel faders allow you to mix with an all-new reinforced fader design. Users can change channel-fader functionality with the dedicated buttons for volume, pan, sends, and device control: fade clips in and out of the mix, pan instruments to the left, right, or centre, raise the level of reverb or other effects to create fluid transitions, open and close filters for lush sweeps and much more. Additionally, each fader is completely assignable for flexible mixing and mapping options.

    Seamless Integration
    APC mini comes pre-mapped to Live for an instant performance and production setup. When APC mini is plugged into your computer, its hardware controls correspond 1 to 1 with Ableton Live's interface—no additional configuring is required. For APC veterans, all of APC mini's controls can be re-assigned on the fly for customised setups that change with your performance or production style. Whether you are an electronic music artist and Live is your canvas, a DJ using Live for performance and real-time mixing, or a more traditional musician using Live on stage or in the studio, you will find the APC mini to be the intuitive, powerful instrument that directly links your inspiration with Ableton Live.

    USB Power & Class Compliance
    For maximum portability, APC mini is powered over USB and supports plug-and-play connectivity. APC mini also offers a smaller footprint than its APC counterparts, enabling musicians to use APC mini alongside effects controllers and other devices. Users can even run multiple APC minis in parallel for more versatility.

    Production Content Included
    APC mini comes packed with a version of Ableton Live, a high-definition virtual synthesizer, and professional samples and loops for immediate out-of-the-box music creation. Ableton Live Lite enables musicians and producers to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit musical ideas in a fluid audio/MIDI environment. Hybrid 3, by AIR Music Tech, is a virtual synthesizer for electronic musicians, DJs, sound designers, and music producers who love to get their hands dirty. Create anything from fat, retro synth sounds to edgy, modern leads and everything in between. Toolroom Records artist launch packs bring you the coveted sounds of electronic music with a premium collection of sample packs, produced exclusively for Akai Professional. Produce, compose, and remix with professional sounds curated by the world's premier electronic music label.
