Superbooth 2019: Ableton CV Tools For Live Is Coming Soon
Hollin Jones on Thu, May 9th 0 comments
Ableton is releasing a raft of new CV-focused Mac For Live devices, which are currently in beta. See how they will help you expand and enhance your setup, and download them today.

Ableton has a great track record of adding useful and innovative new features to Live, its flagship DAW. Now in public beta is CV Tools, a new Pack of 10 Max for Live devices that generate or receive Pitch, Control, Clock and Trigger CV.

 Soon you’ll be able to receive and modulate CV between your modular or other CV-based gear and Ableton Live 10 using a compatible, DC-coupled audio interface.

You’ll also be able to use Live as the tempo leader or set it to follow your modular system clock.

Plus, even if you don’t own a modular setup, the Rotating Rhythm Generator and CV Utility devices can add modular-style workflow inside Live or to hardware setups that don’t use CV-based equipment. CV Tools is being developed by Ableton in collaboration with Skinnerbox.



CV Tools is currently available to try in beta. You can download the beta Pack from www.ableton.com/beta Please note: you need to use the Ableton Live 10.1 beta to try CV Tools, and beta testing info is in English only.

After a beta testing period, the Pack will be free for Live 10 Suite owners, or those who own Live 10 Standard plus Max for Live.
