Exploring Ableton's Creative Extensions
Level: Any // Watch Time: 17min
Ableton have just released Creative Extensions, a set of MaxForLive devices that extend the creative possibilities of Ableton Live Suite. There are 8 devices in total; Melodic Steps, Pitch Hack, Gated Delay, Colour Limiter, Spectral Blur, Re-enveloper, Bass and Poli (Bass and Poli were available previously as part of the MaxForLive Essentials pack but have seen some really nice aesthetic and functional updates).
Learn more about the Creative Extensions at the official launch announcement.
I took some time to explore the devices and discover creative uses for them. Although the names suggest particular uses, what I discovered is that each device is capable of far more than it might initially seem. In the video below I explore some of the creative uses of the devices in building a track.
Note: You will need Ableton Live 10 Suite to use these devices.
