Ableton: Ideas and Offers for Making Music at Home

Ableton makes making music at home easier

While we're all making the best of our time at home, Ableton has stepped in and tried to make it even easier on music producers who are staying home.

The most important news is that Ableton Live 10 is now running a 90-day free trial (for those who are on the fence about starting their music production journey) and all editions of Live have a price reduction of 30%.

Make music at home

This post on Ableton's website is continuously updated, so be sure to keep your eye on it:

Update: April 8, 2020

  • We’ve reduced the price on all editions of Live by 30%. This offer includes new licenses as well as upgrades. Log in to see your available upgrades.
  • In collaboration with Max for Cats and Sonic Bloom, we’ve made the Stray Cats Collection, a free Pack of Max for Live devices. (Note: this Pack requires Max for Live, which is included in Live Suite or available for purchase for Live Standard.)
  • Our book, Making Music: 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers, is temporarily free to download in .pdf, .mobi, and .epub format.
  • With Loop delayed until 2021, we’ll bring a bit of that community to you at home. We’re planning three days of curated live streams and daily music-making challenges, as well as a place to discuss the process of making music and share results. Save the dates: April 24-26. More info is coming soon.

April 2, 2020

  • The Live 10 trial period has been temporarily increased to 90 days, giving you more time to play with all the features of Ableton Live Suite. Active trials will automatically be extended. And anyone who has used the trial before can now use it again.

  • The Spectral Textures Pack is now free. New sounds can bring new ideas, so we’ll be offering more free sounds soon.

  • Our Learning Music and Learning Synths websites are free resources that run on any internet-connected device running a modern web browser. These sites offer an interactive introduction to music-making concepts.

The Nomadic Music Producer's Handbook

Nomadic Music Producer's Handbook: Make music at home, or on the road.

The Nomadic Music Producer's Handbook is the result of over two years of trial-and-error as a nomadic DJ and music producer. I discuss ways you can earn an income remotely as you travel, landing DJ gigs, finding free meals and accommodations, staying fit while traveling, my take on mixing and mastering, preparing for travel, and much more.
