Ableton release Beat Tools

New pack aims to provide all the sounds you need for beatmaking

Ableton has released Beat Tools, a new creative toolkit designed to provide all the sounds you need for beatmaking.

Available at the Pack store — or included with Push and Live 9 Suite — the Pack brings together more than 120 Drum and Instrument Racks with tweakable processing, over 180 audio loops for slicing, plus MIDI clips, effects chains and more. And everything’s set up for hands-on creation, especially with Push.
The idea behind the pack is to put everything you need for beatmaking in one place. Drum Racks are made up of percussive hits, bass and melodic samples for working on tight-knit ideas for groove and melody on single kits. Over 100 Instrument Racks offer a diverse sound palette for setting moods – from warm bass and smooth electric pianos, to icy pads and sharp leads. A collection of audio loops and phrases are ready for chopping up and creating new grooves and melodies, and nearly 100 MIDI clips are there for reworking into your own ideas, or showing what’s possible with the kits. 

With all these sounds at your fingertips, Beat Tools is set up for creating  new musical ideas and keeping you in your flow, especially with Push. Drum kits and Instrument Racks come with processing and effects chains that sound great right off the bat. Eight Macros are carefully set up for creative tweaking and sound design directly from Push’s encoders, while instruments make use of expressive features like pad aftertouch.

It is available now for EUR 49/USD 59.
