Third-party plug-ins open up a whole new universe of effects and instruments in Ableton Live 10. Thanks to some neat features in Live, you can ensure your workflow is at its prime when using your new favourite plug-ins. In this Ableton Live Tutorial video, Liam O’Mullane demonstrates how you can customise your workflow when using plug-ins, saving defaults for plug-ins and using Ableton Live’s Rack systems to save particular states for when you reload in a plug-in from a previous session.
