Product Overview

Ableton Live keeps getting better and better, and the newly released Live 9.5 update is chock full of improvements. In this six video tutorial series Ableton trainer Scottie Dugan demonstrates the new features and how to use them creatively.

Scottie first walks you through the many general updates to Live 9.5 that make working in it more productive, like a new Metering Display and default 3rd party Plug-In Mappings. Scottie then explores the four new Filter Circuit types found in the 9.5 update and how you can use them to drive Live's Filter Effects and expand your sonic landscape.

The next 3 videos each cover one of the new Max for Live instruments. First, he discusses Bass, a new analog-style mono-synth with classic synthesizer functionality. Next, he explores Poli, which is similar to Bass but with its own unique parameter set. The last new Max for Live instrument is Multi, a six-engine synthesizer capable of a myriad of interesting sounds and synthesis types.

Scottie saves the biggest update for his final video, the update made to Simpler, which has been redone with three different modes including Classic, One Shot, and Slice. Scottie dives into each of them, along with how you can Warp right inside Simpler, making samples in real-time.
