Kapture Pad extends Ableton Live’s capabilities by allowing you to take snapshots of all mixer and device parameters in your set and recall them instantly. The inclusion of snapshot morphing makes Kapture Pad not only a live performance utility but also a sound design tool. Kapture Pad is based on software originally created for Richie Hawtin’s Plastikman Live show.
Two types of snapshots are available: Global Snapshots and Track Snapshots.
- Global Snapshots store mixer and device parameters for all tracks and all devices (yes, even VSTs and Audio Units).
- Track Snapshots allow morphing between four snapshots on a track using the Morph Pad – an incredible new way to perform electronic music with Live.
Both types of snapshots offer filtering so that you can choose exactly which devices or tracks you want Kapture to control.
Here’s a demo of track morphing in action:
