Frequently Asked Questions


I get an error when I try to load one of your presets.

Please make sure you've checked the requirements before downloading a pack, the most common errors all arise from having an incompatible version of Ableton Live. I'd recommend updating to the latest version from your Ableton Account page. If you've purchased a pack and it is not working please get in touch and I'll be happy to refund you.

I've downloaded one of your products - what am I allowed to do with it?

Check out the page on Licensing Information.

What is Ableton Live?

Ableton Live is music production software often known as a digital audio workstation (DAW). The best place to learn about Ableton is at their official site:

What Is An Ableton Live Pack?

Most music software, like Ableton Live, comes with a built-in set of sounds, instruments and effects for you to create your music with. These are never intended to be comprehensive and can't possibly cover all styles and needs so as your music making skills develop you'll probably want to look for new sounds and effects to expand your palette. Ableton Live Packs are Ableton's approach to this and allow you to download content created by 3rd Parties to expand the capabilities of Live.

What Is MaxForLive?

I made a video exploring what MaxForLive is in quite a bit of detail. You can watch that here.

In short, MaxForLive is a development platform that lets 3rd party developers create entirely new instruments and effects for Live, which you can download and use just like any other Ableton Instrument or Effect. MaxForLive devices (.amxd files) can be simple instruments or effects but they can also alter the functionality of Ableton Live directly, allowing you to do incredible things that might not otherwise be possible. MaxForLive requires Ableton Live Suite.
