Ableton's Operator soft-synth for Ableton Live takes everything you know and love about frequency modulation (FM) synthesis to a whole new level. Operator isn't just a powerful synthesizer, it follows Ableton's basic design philosophy, putting a massive range of tone at your fingertips, but keeping the user interface simple enough that you don't need to be a synthesis guru to to get the most out of it. In addition to standard FM synthesis controls, Operator comes equipped with a full range of subtractive synthesis tools too, including filters, envelopes, and LFOs. This lets you create anything from gritty leads, to otherworldly percussion, to rhythmic atmospheres, and even cutting-edge basses - and you get it all, right inside Ableton Live with Ableton's Operator soft-synth plug-in.
An easy way to get even more out of Ableton Live
What makes Operator different from any other VST or AU plug-in? Simple - it's not a conventional plug-in at all. Instead, Operator integrates directly into the DNA of Ableton Live, becoming one more integrated tool you can use to take your music further. What's more, Operator 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 Operators together, add effect and MIDI processors, and then save it all as a Rack for future use.
