Ableton has announced that when Live 8 ships there will be an also provide an update Ableton Operator. Ableton is calling it a “major overall”. Feeling the ill effects of software synth overload, you may have glazed over when Ableton announced it was making its own FM synth, exclusively for Live. Ableton has built an easy-to-use, great-sounding instrument that integrates classic analog and digital synth sounds with Live’s beat-synced and envelope-shaping powers. Finally, it’s Ableton software for keyboard players.

So what’s new?

  • User Waveforms: Draw your own waveforms by adjusting the amplitudes of each oscillator’s harmonics. You can also edit the built-in waveforms. So, it’s like a mini-additive synth.
  • Feedback is now available for all oscillators that are not being modulated by another oscillator. This should provide for some pretty interesting possibilities.
  • New filter types: New ladder modes and SVF filters bring the total number of Operator’s filter types to fourteen.
  • There is also a frequency response curve view in the filter display and an integrated waveshaper in the filter, featuring an adjustable drive amount and four curve shapes.
  • The filter, LFO and pitch envelopes now feature adjustable slopes, like those found in Sampler.
  • There’s a new MIDI modulation section in the global display, with multiple destination and amount settings for five MIDI control sources. We’ve also added new modulation options for the LFO and pitch envelope.
