Description

EboSuite, from the team at EboStudio, consists of a growing set of plug-ins for video sampling, editing, mixing and visual effects that transform Ableton Live into an AudioVisual production suite. EboSuite provides an unrivalled way of integrating video into live shows and music productions. It enables musicians to produce/perform their own visual music and video clips without having to learn about complex video editing or VJ software. EboSuite is tightly integrated into Live’s interface however all video processing is done outside of Ableton Live for optimal performance and reliability.

With EboSuite you can treat video like audio in Ableton Live. The plug-ins are designed to fit seamlessly in the creative workflow of music producers and performers. Opening an EboSuite plug-in automatically opens the EboSuite application (currently Mac only). Since the application runs outside of Ableton Live, in a separate instance, Live’s performance is not affected while using EboSuite. Video clips with alpha channel and of any resolution are supported (e.g. 4K, 1080p, 720p). We achieve optimal performance by using the GPU accelerated HAP codec (support for other codecs will follow soon in a free update). EboSuite is extremely easy to install; you can start sampling and mixing within a few clicks. Read more about the plug-ins below.

eSampler

The eSampler is a fully functional video sampler. Drag audiovisual clips into the sampler and produce video beats and melodies, trigger videos live, simulate video scratching or use it in ‘video only’ mode to visualize your own sounds. Make the visual output respond to the note velocity with the audiovisual ADSR or the velocity to opacity function. Different audio pitch modes are available to put you in control of pitch quality and performance. You can use up to 127 eSamplers on one track using a Drum Rack.

eClips

Use the eClips plug-in to add video playback functionality to Ableton Live’s Session View. Drag video files into Session View clip slots and play and treat them like audio clips (edit warp markers, loop points, start/end point etc.). Control the opacity of the video manually or link it to the volume controls of Ableton Live’s audio mixer.

eTrackTransform

Use the eTrackTransform plug-in to position, scale and rotate individual video tracks to arrange them in the video output window.

eCrossfade

With the eCrossfade plug-in you can mix your video tracks in real time using different blend modes and visual effects (currently nine available). eCrossfade is controlled by Live’s crossfader.

eComper

Use the eComper plug-in to consolidate your midi clip that is controlling one or more eSamplers to a new video file without leaving Ableton Live. You can drag the newly created video clip directly from eComper’s interface to a Session View clip slot, to use it immediately in your Live project.

eSyphon

With the eSyphon plug-in you can route the output of your video tracks to other video applications like VJ-, video mapping- or visual effects software. You can add the eSyphon plug-in to the master track to output the final mix and/or on individual tracks containing eClips or eSampler plug-in(s).

eConvert

With the eConvert plug-in you can easily convert video files to the HAP codec within Ableton Live. You can drag the newly encoded video file directly from eConvert’s interface to a Session View clip slot or the eSampler for further use.

eFX

EboSuite includes 12 stackable visual effect plug-ins for realtime image manipulation and image processing. These effects are BlockBlur, BrCoSa, Chroma, Crop, Edge, Kaleido, Levels, Median, Pointilize, RGB, RotaZoom and Shine.

Q. What are the Minimum System Requirements?

A. Ableton Live 9.7 & MaxforLive 7

Q. What’s the Installation Process?

A. If the files provided end in .amxd then these should be downloaded and saved to a folder on your harddrive, the files can then either be dragged into your Live set with the mouse or you can add a file path to the folder they’re contained within in the Live Browser.

If the files provided end in .alp then these are Ableton Live Packs, double clicking them open will usually provide a warning regarding the files “Legacy” status, this is nothing to worry about, it’s just the only way we can make a pack that will install itself into your Live browser alongside the factory content.

Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.

ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.

Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
