It looks like we’ll be stuck in quarantine or self-isolation for a while to come. Thankfully, many software developers are currently offering discounts and freebies to help us pass the time and get creative. Ableton has now joined the list of companies offering extended trial periods. You can download and try Ableton Live 10 Suite for free for 90 days, with no feature restrictions.
Ableton Live isn’t the only DAW with a Corona-induced extended trial period. Just a few days ago, Apple announced a 90-day trial version of Logic Pro (and Final Cut Pro, if video is your thing). Reaper is on the list, too. And if you’re a Pro Tools user, you can apply for a free license for remote work, but that’s only for people who already own the software.
Ableton Live 10 Suite extended trial period
Ableton isn’t playing around. Live 10 Suite is the most comprehensive version of the DAW, and now you can try it for free for 90 days. The Suite features Ableton’s entire collection of instruments, including Wavetable, Operator, Sampler, Poli, and Analog. Effects plug-ins like the new Echo are also included, as is Max for Live, including the new CV Tools.
All in all, Ableton Live 10 Suite comes with 13 instruments, 56 audio effects and 17 MIDI effects. That’s a lot of content to get creative and make some tracks while you’re self-isolating. And of course, you can also use any compatible plug-ins that you already own. Other than the 90-day limit, the demo version doesn’t have any restrictions—you can save projects and export them as audio files without limitations.
Here’s our list of other free and discounted music content to help you stay inspired.
Ableton Live 10 Suite runs on macOS 10.11.6 or higher and Windows 7 SP1 or higher (64 bit). The company recommends at least 8 GB of RAM on either OS. A full list of the system requirements is available on the Ableton website, where you’ll also find the download.
