_continental drift

_continental drift takes Ableton’s Drift to new worlds with 25 devices and 300 presets that stack the lusty lubriciousness of this new synthesizer.


Watch a walkthrough sounds demo of what's inside here:


The “drift” part of Ableton Drift is something special. It brings a subconscious charm with its more oblique approach to the notion of stability. We’ve been loving it so far, so we thought we’d expand on this theme. What would multiple Drift instruments stacked in parallel sound like? Would it be even more “drifty?” The answer is a resounding yes. Having 4 Drifts and some custom effects for a single preset brings a new level of dynamics and depth to the divergence.


Each of the 25 Ableton Device Groups forms a base sound that’s comprised of 4 Drift instruments in parallel with realtime effects. Each device has an additional 12 lovingly designed macro presets to get you started and inspired to make your own moves. Load any or all of the ADG files in any project, and you’re ready to play, explore, and automate the sounds and device macros.


"No synth is an island, entire of itself; every synth is a piece of the continent."


• Minimum requirements: Ableton Suite 11.3+

• 25 Ableton 11.3+ Ableton Devices made with Drift + Effects.

For best results, we recommend updating to the latest version of Ableton Live for patch/preset compatibility.


Ableton error messages such as, "Only audio effects can be placed in this kind of track." or, "Preset can not be loaded. It's probably broken." - usually indicate that our presets were made in a version of Ableton that is newer than yours. If you run into issues, please contact us for help!


Important: Ableton Live files are not backwards compatible. We generally create new releases in the current version of Ableton Live. Currently, all of our Ableton releases are for version 11.0 or greater. Using older versions of Ableton Live will most likely not allow you to use our newest releases. Consider updating your version of Ableton to the latest version to ensure good compatibility.


Some of our Ableton releases are for specific editions of Ableton only (Intro, Standard, Suite). Please ensure you have the correct version before purchasing.
