Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Ableton Electric - Software Instrument for Live
Delivered By Download

An EP for Your Ableton Live Rig!

Ableton Electric lets you create your own custom electric piano sounds right inside Live. Developed by Applied Acoustics Systems, the makers of the Lounge Lizard standalone electric piano virtual instrument, Ableton Electric uses a unique physical modeling process to synthesize the sound of each component in a complete electric piano, giving you a range of control over your sound that's far beyond what most sample-based virtual instruments have to offer. Start by selecting either an electromagnetic (Rhodes) or an electrostatic (Wurlitzer) pickup style, and then dial in the behavior of the mallet, tine, and damper sections of your sound. In no time, you'll be able to create electric piano textures ranging from smooth and shimmery to savage and snarly. And since it comes with a ton of killer presets, you'll be up and running with the Ableton Electric virtual instrument right away.

An easy way to get even more out of Ableton Live

What makes Electric different from any other VST or AU plug-in? Simple - it's not a conventional plug-in at all. Instead, Electric integrates directly into the DNA of Ableton Live, becoming one more integrated tool you can use to take your music further. What's more, Electric and all the other Ableton Live expansions use the same simple interface style as Live itself, so you don't have to learn a whole new workflow to get great new sounds in the environment you're already familiar with. You can even stack multiple Electrics together, add effect and MIDI processors, and then save it all as a Rack for future use.

Ableton Electric Virtual Instrument for Live Features:
  • An original physical modeling electric piano synthesizer that integrates directly into the Ableton Live environment
  • Created in collaboration with Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS) and based on the same advanced physical modeling synthesis technology found in their Lounge Lizard virtual instrument
  • Component modeling allows you to define each aspect of your electric piano sound
  • Choose from either electromagnetic (Rhodes) and electrostatic (Wurlitzer) pickup styles and set their distance and spacing to create sonic depth
  • Setting the stiffness and strength of the mallet parameters lets you define the attack of your instrument
  • Overall tone and decay controls for your virtual tines defines the sustain of your virtual electric piano
  • Adjusting the hardness of the damper parameter allows you to effect the overall decay of your sound
  • Many parameters can be modulated via key tracking and velocity for expressive, dynamic playing
  • Includes an expertly programmed library of presets covering classic electric piano sounds and creative variations alike
